Product Description

by Jessie Wise and Sara Buffington

A plain-English guide to teaching phonics. Every parent can teach reading; no experts need apply!

Take charge of your child’s literacy with this jargon-free phonics guide. Too many parents watch their children struggle with early reading skills — and don’t know how to help. Phonics programs are too often complicated, overpriced, gimmicky, and filled with obscure educationalese.

The Ordinary Parent’s Guide to Teaching Reading cuts through the confusion, giving parents a simple, direct, scripted guide to teaching reading — from short vowels through supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. The Ordinary Parent’s Guide to Teaching Reading is user-friendly, affordable, and easy to follow — supplying you with everything you need to teach reading in one book.

Clarification: we do NOT offer a guarantee that children who learn phonics from The Ordinary Parent’s Guide to Teaching Reading will win the spelling bee. We only guarantee that they will grow up to be avid readers with fantastic grades who get into elite universities, then proceed to change the world with their creativity, erudition, and passion, while respecting rich and poor alike, and calling their parents at least twice a week with genuine gratitude and in-depth updates. 

That’s all. Just wanted to clarify that, so as not to raise unreasonable expectations.

What others are saying

  1. Question

    at what lesson should we start introducing starter reading books?

    • There’s not a particular lesson cut-off; it’s a little bit of “try it and see.” But you might want to start after lesson 40, by which point the child will have learned the vowel and consonant sounds. We have a list of beginning-reader books at https://welltrainedmind.com/books-for-beginning-readers/

  2. 3 out of 5 Follow-up Reading Program

    My daughter has developed a great love for reading and wonderful confidence. Thank you for this guide!

  3. Question

    Do you recommend continuing a reading program following the completion of Ordinary Parent’s Guide to Teaching Reading? I am using the First Language series in our homeschool, too.

    • No, we don’t recommend any formal reading programs after a student has completed O.P.G. Once a student can decipher words, she needs lots of practice; so we just recommend LOTS of reading…books from the library, bookstore, home, etc.

  4. Question

    Aside from everyone learni g at there own pace. Is there a general rough estimate it should be broken down? What lessons should be taught in first grade. We did 1-40 for Kindergarten, as of Feb, but will continue till May learning more. Whatdo you suggest?

    • It sounds like you’re off to a great start! For the rest of this schoolyear, you could stay where you are in the book, reinforcing the concepts with lots of reading every week…or you could push on to Lesson 53.
      Then in 1st grade you could aim to complete Lessons 54-105 or 54-133, depending on the child’s speed.
