This book is no longer available and is now REPLACED by the NEW 2016 version of Alpha-Phonics by Sam Blumenfeld (Look for the link under the price here: See newer edition of this book) ISBN is: 9780941995320. The contents of the book are IDENTICAL to the previous version. The only two differences are: The new one is perfect bound (Glued back pages for extra strength) not comb-bound and does not come with a CD Rom Version.* * NEW Alpha-Phonics is at a SPECIAL LOW Price of only $ 24.95. (The same price Alpha-Phonics sold for in 1989! 27 years ago!) The fabled Alpha-Phonics systematic phonics instruction program used by 100s of thousands since it was introduced in the late 1970's. Alpha-Phonics is probably the simplest, most effective and reasonably priced phonics instruction programs available anywhere. HERE IS WHY IT WORKS SO WELL: IT IS SIMPLE!! There are only 44 phonograms (Sounds) the child needs to learn. Reading, contrary to what you have been told, is easy to teach because all you have to do is teach the student to SOUND OUT the words they need to read. At first they sound the words out aloud, later they do it in their head silently. That is ALL there is to teaching reading. MOM get this: All 128 Lessons in Alpha-Phonics are covered in ONLY 14 pages of instructions for you. Students begin with short vowels putting together simple words (Like a with m = am or a with s = as) and progress to the more advanced words. With Alpha-Phonics the beginner can be reading simple sentences by lesson three, and that can even be on the first day! Other reading instruction programs try to do too much. They inject grammar, pictures and other material, needlessly complicating the task. Alpha-Phonics just teaches reading only. Alpha-Phonics has as a BONUS: you teach SPELLING easily as you go (through simple dictation). Alpha-Phonics easily introduces over 3,500 words in its simple 128 lessons. Some can learn to read in only months. Alpha-Phonics also works very well for older students, even grown adults who need remediation. Is there a negative about Alpha-Phonics? Yes. In the past 30 years we have heard only one criticism (Only a few times). It is: Some Moms say they think their child can become bored when taught by Alpha-Phonics. Why? Parents have been convinced that learning has to be a fun time. They believe games, card decks, cartoons/pictures, spin the needle tricks, etc. make it fun. They feel they have to entertain their kids while teaching. But, this unnecessarily slows down the process. With Alpha-Phonics the student can actually be READING simple sentences even day ONE! Students do see lists of words in Alpha-Phonics lessons, but they QUICKLY are actually READING those words; they are accomplishing, instead of being entertained. Bells and Whistles in other programs slow the process and cost time and money $$. The huge sense of success in actually reading soon overcomes any other consideration. We almost forgot the SUPER BONUS: Many ADULTS become BETTER readers while teaching their child! Alpha-Phonics: highly recommended by Homeschool reviewers Cathy Duffy, Mary Pride, Karen Andreola, The Robinsons. * * You can buy the CD Rom version separately on for only $ 9.00 (It used to be $ 39.95) Find the CD ROM version on at ISBN: 9780941995184.
