Product: The Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading Subject: Phonics Levels Used: K-2nd Dates Used: 2008-2009
Likes: It is very thorough. It's a gradual progression constantly adding more and more each lesson. You can move at any speed you want. It is inexpensive, all you need is this one book and a chalkboard. I use it along with another curriculum to make sure there are no holes.
Dislikes: It's very basic. No cute pictures of colorful penguins.
Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading - did not work for us
Product: The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading Subject: Reading Levels Used: K Dates Used: 2004
Likes: The book was easy to follow. The lessons were quick and easy to understand. The book was well written.
Dislikes: My children just did not learn to read this way. I have spoken to other parents who LOVE this book and their children learned to read quickly with this book. My children did not respond well to it and did better with phonics.
