In 2021, I am publishing a course I shared with some families back in 2016, but have hesitated to publish because I didn’t have the time to do so. In this course, I teach little ones to read using the Gospel of St. John as our reading text.
In this course, I teach children the elementary sounds encountered in the Gospel of John (i.e., phonics) along with important sight words to be memorized to help wihth reading. Students learn to recognize symbols for the elementary sounds, and mark the text with these symbols as an exercise in English orthography.
I believe this reading program will be found to be more efficient than any other programs available and, it’s free for all who wish to use it.
Here’s a video of my little Anna working through a reading with me:
