The Reading For Kids (and Adults!) Teen and Adult Version is the same book as the original Reading For Kids but the cover graphic is more appealing to teens and adults. This is a phonics based reading program for all ages. It has over 260 pages packed full of reproducible worksheets, flashcards, and stories to develop reading skills in students. This book is designed for anyone to use to help someone learn to read. If you can speak English and read this paragraph, you have all the skills necessary to use this book. The Reading For Kids (and Adults!) beginning phonics reading program is a ten lesson, systematic approach to teaching reading. It is suitable for teaching in a tutoring situation where a teacher only spends one or two hours a week with their students or daily as in a classroom or home school. From the very first lesson, where only five letters and their most common sounds are taught, students begin to read real text. Each lesson builds on previous lessons. The activities and reading material in each lesson includes only words and sentences from the previous lessons. This allows students to slowly build their phonetic base while reading in real context. The Reading For Kids (and Adults!) beginning phonics reading program teaches the most common sound for each of the English alphabet's twenty-six letters and covers three basic skill levels: Level A Sound-letter recognition Level B Blending, segmenting and sight words Level C Creating meaning and comprehension
