A plain-English guide to teaching phonics. Every parent can teach reading; no experts need apply!
Take charge of your child’s literacy with this jargon-free phonics guide. Too many parents watch their children struggle with early reading skills — and don’t know how to help. Phonics programs are too often complicated, overpriced, gimmicky, and filled with obscure educationalese. The Ordinary Parent’s Guide to Teaching Reading cuts through the confusion, giving parents a simple, direct, scripted guide to teaching reading — from short vowels through supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. The Ordinary Parent’s Guide to Teaching Reading is user-friendly, affordable, and easy to follow — supplying you with everything you need to teach reading in one book.
Over the years of her teaching career, Jessie Wise has seen good reading instruction fall prey to trendy philosophies and political infighting. She has seen parents intimidated by the idea that only trained professionals can teach reading. Now, she has teamed with dynamic co-author Sara Buffington to supply parents with a clear, direct phonics program — a program that gives them the know-how and confidence to take matters into their own hands.
