Success is All in the Foundation
1. No Sight Words? HOW? After introducing the Pre-Requisite Phonics Skills, we just glide right through those sight words by playing What’s the Clue? and SOUND through EVERY word from right-to-left - just ignoring irrelevant letters. Ex. (have) h a v e, (the) th e, (John) J o h n.
2. No Endless Rules and Exceptions? HOW? Just ONE sound for each letter or letter-combination is introduced. This covers 90% of reliable Phonics Facts at their fingertips, they can easily figure out the small 10% on their own! Ex. That is the pet I w a n t.
3. No Painful Sounding Out of Words? HOW? In Stage I, using a unique technique, the children “know” the word before playing "What’s The Clue?" and SOUND through EVERY word from left-to-right. In Stage II, when NO phonics exceptions are taught, the whole English language can be divided into FAMILIES: Ex. at, ate, ait, ay. Words are decoded by these easy UNITS rather than by painful letter-by-letter. They are give a Compass, a UNIFORM APPROACH, to decode word independently - which assures success.
4. Why is it Fun? Because right from the very beginning the use of “real” English, along with rebuses, gets children right into interesting, intelligible stories. Ex. Ken can get the 🏀.
