Learning Phonics the Easy Way compliments The Ultimate Guide: Teaching Phonics to Struggling Readers & Those with Dyslexia as an additional resource to aid your student on their journey to read. Instructors are provided a host of resources that show students how to circle blends and digraphs, highlight phonics concepts within words, and loop syllables. We recommend each student have a notebook, as they will want to write in it and make it their own.
We developed this manual with the student in mind. The words are displayed in a large font and begin with simple words and concepts with the intention of boosting the student’s confidence before advancing to words that may be a little more complicated.
