Whether your child is already sounding out simple 3-letter words or just knows that each letter has a unique sound that goes with it, Reading 1 is a good place to start!

This phonics course includes basic reading skills, but also includes age-appropriate handwriting and spelling assignments.

The pace of the program is controlled by the parent. Instructor Barbara Pickard will show you how to judge when your student is ready to move to the next lesson and enable your student to take charge of their learning:

  • Quick learner? Move quickly or expand upon daily activities.
  • Can sound out simple words? Move at the daily pace.
  • Inexperienced learner? Follow the daily pace, and repeat any lessons that are not mastered.

All daily lesson plans are already completed so there is no pressure on the parent to prepare before tomorrow’s lesson. You can be confident that students are being presented with a systematic guide through the fundamental reading skill of blending short and long vowels into words and can watch their development as students progress through the lesson videos.

As the parent, you will watch each daily lesson with your child and observe how your child does.

Before each lesson, you will need to print out the worksheets and hand them to your child when they are needed. Then help your student grade them using the video lesson as a guide.

As the homeschool teacher, you will have to boot up the site daily and watch the videos with your child. Ms. Pickard will show you how to present reading skills in everyday life, and if the student is not fully participating, or needs extra review, the you can easily step in.

Below is a video explain the teaching methodology of this course and what parents and students can both expect.
