Now you can teach your child the joy of reading with our teaching guide and use the readers again and again for reading fluency. This easy-to-use teaching guide set includes:
- The Reading-Literature Teacher’s Guide shows parents and teachers an easy to follow literature-based reading program suited to the child’s developmental level. The authors, Free and Treadwell, present very
specific steps, including a lesson-by-lesson plan for beginning reading.
- The Primer, First Reader and Second Reader are phonics-based readers which use quality literature rather than “twaddle,” as Charlotte Mason termed dumbed-down texts.
Authors Margaret Free and Harriette Treadwell maintain that reading instruction should be a joyous activity. To achieve it the authors use phonics (with some sight words) for early reading… with one important addition: their reading starts with and continually works from good literature. Phonics instruction grows from the child’s own curiosity and interaction with word-rich literature.
As you learn to use the guide and the three readers that accompany it, you will begin to see that Free and Treadwell had it right–reading is a joyous activity. Includes four books and 2 sets of Flash Cards.
