Phonics Pathways: Clear Steps to Easy Reading and Perfect Spelling, 9th Edition

Now in its ninth edition, Phonics Pathways (with help from Dewey the Bookworm) teaches students of all ages the rudiments of phonics and spelling with an efficient, practical, and foolproof method. Written in an easy-to-use format, Phonics Pathways is organized by sounds and spelling patterns. The patterns are introduced one at a time and slowly built into syllables, words, phrases, and sentences.

Printed in a large 8-1/2" x 11" lay-flat format for easy photocopying, Phonics Pathways is filled with illustrative examples, word lists, and practice readings that are 100 percent decodable. While appropriate for K-2 emergent readers, this award-winning book has also been used successfully with adolescent and adult learners, as well as second language learners and students with learning disabilities such as dyslexia.

Phonics Pathways is ideal for school, tutoring, and home use and includes wise, humorous proverbs that encourage virtues such as patience, perseverance, honesty, compassion, courage, and loyalty.

Praise for Phonics Pathways

"Adorable characters like Dewey the Bookworm and illustrations to delight all make this program vital in becoming part of your child's life. Let your child be a lifelong reader—give him the Phonics Pathways advantage!"

Cathy Fox, New Jersey director, National Right to Read Foundation, NRRF Teacher of the Year 1997

"I had no idea how to teach phonics, yet in about six weeks my 3-1/2 and 5-year-old children were reading and spelling. I always recommend Phonics Pathways—it remains my favorite program."

Sandra S. Elam, director, The National Right to Read Foundation

"We are homeschooling our 9- and 7-year-olds and were convinced they would never read. Then I discovered Phonics Pathways in our local library. We are absolutely thrilled with their progress and your book!"

The Walter R. Wright family, Gnadenhutten, Ohio

"After my mom had a stroke she had trouble getting words from her brain to her mouth. Soon after she was back home I began using Phonics Pathways with her. It helped her so much—she loved it!"

Barb Tessmann, librarian, Oconomowoc Public Library, Oconomowoc, Wisconsin

Synopsis:

Using step-by-step learning, everyone can master phonics

It is designed for teaching students in small incremental steps and works well with students with very short attention spans. It has been used successfully with preschoolers, children, adolescents, and adults, second language learners, and students with disabilities.
