A Guide to Teach Your Child to Read

Publisher: Greenleaf Press (TN)
Everyone thinks kids hate math. But the truth is, kids don't hate math--they hate worksheets! Writing down equations takes fine motor skills that young children haven't yet developed, making the process of learning math difficult and tedious. Math done mentally, or verbal math, makes math fun. Children see math problems as a game and a challenge. In the second edition of this pioneering educational bestseller, handwriting is removed from math problems to help children cement fundamental mathematical skills so that they may solve problems without having to do any writing at all. Developed as a supplement to traditional math education, the lesson is completely comprehensive, step-by-step, and leaves no area undone. The second book of the series is meant for children between the ages of 7 and 8.

The Fun and Simple Way for Effective Reading
Author: Louise V. Moore
For Greek antiquity, the question of right or fitting measure constituted the very heart of both ethics and politics. But can the Good of the ethical life and the Justice of the political be reduced to measurement and calculation? If they are matters of measure, are they not also absolutely immeasurable? In critical dialogue with texts by Plato, Hölderlin, Rilke, Heidegger, Benjamin, Adorno, Marx, Merleau-Ponty, Levinas, and Levi, the author argues that the question of measure has become ever more urgent in the context of a modernity pressured by the conditions of a technological economy and a relativism that threatens to destroy a vital sense of moral responsibility and the commitment to justice that underlies the possibility of freedom. Conceived as a task for the “metaphysics” of memory, this book explores the normative problematic of measure, bringing its deeply buried redemptive promise to appearance in our gestures, uses and abuses of the hands, the dialectic of tact, and the manners of social existence.

You can buy Alpha-Phonics NOW and save $ 3.74 by using Discount/Coupon Code: SGYP38JT at Checkout. THIS WILL LOWER YOUR PRICE TO ONLY $ 21.21!!! HURRY!! The Alpha-Phonics book. The fabled Alpha-Phonics systematic phonics instruction program by Samuel L. Blumenfeld used by hundreds of thousands since introduced in the late 1970's. Alpha-Phonics is probably the simplest, most effective and reasonably priced phonics instruction program available anywhere. NOTICE: This is a special edition of Alpha-Phonics at a special price of $24.95 (Use Discount/coupon Code SGYP38JT and pay only $21.21. It is perfect bound (Not comb-bound) and does not include the CD Rom version (Which can be purchased separately if desired). The contents of this special edition book are IDENTICAL with our other Alpha-Phonics books, but, with the perfect binding are offered at this low price in honor of the Author, Samuel L. Blumenfeld, who passed away on May 30, 2015. HERE IS WHY IT HAS ALWAYS WORKED SO WELL: IT IS SIMPLE!! There are only 44 phonograms (Sounds) the child needs to learn. Reading, contrary to what you have been told, is easy to teach someone because all you have to do is teach the student to SOUND OUT the words they need to read. At first they sound the words out aloud, later they do it in their head silently. That is ALL there is to teaching reading. MOM get this: All 128 Lessons in Alpha-Phonics are covered in ONLY 14 pages of instructions for you. (See SAMPLE PAGES above) Students begin with short vowels putting together simple words (Like a with m = am or a with s = as) and progress to the more advanced words. With Alpha-Phonics the beginner can be reading simple sentences by lesson three, and that can even be on the first day! Other programs try to do too much. They inject grammar, pictures and other material, needlessly complicating the task. Alpha-Phonics just teaches reading only. Alpha-Phonics has as a BONUS: you teach SPELLING easily as you go (through simple dictation). Alpha-Phonics easily introduces over 3,500 words in its simple 128 lessons. Some can learn to read in only months. Alpha-Phonics works very well for older students, even grown adults who need remediation. NOW you get the benefit of Full money-back guarantee and 24/7 Helpline. Is there a negative about Alpha-Phonics? Yes. In the past 30 years we have heard only one criticism (Only a few times). It is: Some Moms say they think their child can become bored when taught by Alpha-Phonics. Why? Parents have been convinced that learning has to be fun. They believe games, card decks, cartoons/pictures, spin the needle tricks, etc. make it fun. They feel they have to entertain kids while teaching. But this slows down the process. With Alpha-Phonics the student can actually be READING simple sentences even day ONE! Students do see lists of words in Alpha-Phonics lessons, but they quickly are READING those words; they are accomplishing, not being entertained. The Bells and Whistles in other programs slow the process and cost time and money $$. The Student's huge sense of success in actually reading quickly overcomes any short-lived boredom. We almost forgot the SUPER BONUS: Many ADULTS become BETTER readers while teaching their child! Amazon also has available a set of practice Readers and a practice Phonics Workbook to accompany Alpha-Phonics. The Alpha-Phonics READERS (Set of 10 little books children love): $ 24.95 (ISBN 9780941995122). The Alpha-Phonics PHONICS WORKBOOK: $ 19.95 (ISBN: 9780941995139). They are optional but parents find them helpful to further the progress of their children. SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE, and INEXPENSIVE: Alpha-Phonics.
