Numerous individuals, including several esteemed friends and favorite teachers, have urged me forward in pursuing my dream of putting the concepts into print so that it may benefit many others who have the same desire. We have assembled the Kit to make preparation much easier. The Teacher’s Guides give parents and teachers the information we believe they need to know for preparing themselves to teach. The children must be led and taught, yet they learn so fast! It takes diligence and time to prepare yourself, so we earnestly recommend that you start studying early–before your child is school age, if possible. If your child is already school-age, for example, start studying in the spring, do oral exercises with him during the summer, and help him begin writing when school begins. You can begin the method at any time of year.
Read and re-read the Teacher’s Guide to understand the philosophy and method. With this proven method, the children may go very fast after getting a good start. The order of presenting the concepts and exercises is crucial for the child’s well-being. If the method is closely followed it will help the child avoid learning disorders and many frustrations.
We do not leave the children to pick up a smattering of phonics and handwriting, but teach each concept orally, thoroughly, and directly, clarifying the details. Before handwriting begins in earnest, there are several exercises relating to the phonograms, listening, and helpful number exercises that every student should be taught orally. Children do well to use their hands in doing work, coloring, crafts, free-hand drawing, painting, cutting, and gluing to strengthen fine-motor muscles for writing. Assess, by testing the child if he already knows many of these basics. Handwriting is not a sideline in this method, but the central, connecting element in teaching as soon as it is introduced. Children learn quickly and are so happy with their own beautiful handwriting. Teachers and parents find much satisfaction in seeing their students achieve these goals. Every willing student will learn using this method. Reading will happen as you continue the method, often during the second reader.
Our venture is small and we may not always be able to answer or fill orders as quickly as we wish, so order early or put your questions in as soon as possible. We will do our best to provide each client with the resources you need to teach reading with excellence, preceded by its several, essential sub-skills.
