This is the NEW 2018 version of Alpha-Phonics. Remember this is the ONE & ONLY ORIGINAL Alpha-Phonics! AND is at a NEW LOW PRICE!: ONLY $ 22.95 – the same price it sold for in 1989! – 28 years ago! Alpha-Phonics is a systematic phonics instruction program used by 100s of thousands since it was introduced in the late 1970's. Alpha-Phonics is probably the simplest, most effective and reasonably priced phonics instruction programs available. HERE IS WHY IT WORKS SO WELL: IT IS SIMPLE!! There are only 44 phonograms (Sounds) the child needs to learn in order to read. Reading, contrary to what you have been told, is easy to teach because all you have to do is teach the student to SOUND OUT the words they want 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. 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 reading instruction programs try to do way 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 students can learn to read in only months. Alpha-Phonics also works very well for older students, even grown adults who need remediation. 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-time. They have been led to believe games, card decks, cartoons/pictures, spin the needle tricks, etc., make it fun. They feel they have to entertain their kids while teaching. But, this unnecessarily 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 actually READING those words; they are accomplishing, instead of being entertained. The Bells and Whistles in other programs slow the process and cost time and money $$. The huge sense of success in actually reading quickly overcomes any other consideration. We almost forgot the SUPER BONUS: Many ADULTS become BETTER readers while teaching their child! The lessons for the Student are in LARGE TYPE on 8 ½ X11 pages meaning you can instruct him/her DIRECTLY from the book. Nothing need be copied on separate paper. Makes everything much easier than if it were on 5 X 8 pages. Alpha-Phonic is highly recommended by leading Homeschooling curriculum reviewers such as Mary Pride, Cathy Duffy, Karen Andreola. There are TWO DIGITAL versions of Alpha-Phonics: CD Rom version and Flash DRIVE version sold separately on Amazon for only $ 9.00. CD ROM version ISBN: 9780941995184.The new Flash Drive version ISBN: 9780941995412. Both Digital versions contain everything you find in the book plus sound of the author reading the instructions. Amazon also has a set of practice Readers and a practice Phonics Workbook to accompany Alpha-Phonics. The Alpha-Phonics and How To Tutor Little Companion READERS (10 books combined into one handy book): $ 19.95 (ISBN 9780941995344). They are specifically designed to follow along with the Alpha-Phonics book as you teach from it. The other resource is The Alpha-Phonics and How To Tutor Phonics Companion PRACTICE WORKBOOK: $ 19.95 (ISBN: 9780941995337). Designed to accompany the Alpha-Phonics book as you go through the lessons.NOTE: THE DIGITAL VERSIONS ARE FOR WINDOWS ONLY.

From the Inside Flap:

This book can solve America's reading problem! Letters to the author from parents; I must write to express my wife's and my thanks for your excellent book. It has been so valuable to us in teaching our 8-1/2-year-old son, Eric, to read When I started on September 10, Eric was almost totally restricted as a reader. I followed your book's instructions exactly. Would you believe we went from Lesson 2 through Lesson 27 in two weeks? And by Thanksgiving we had drilled through Lesson 117. Even you wouldn't believe the results! It was if we were witnessing a miracle Eric is now reading Robinson Crusoe, and is just loving it! He had been having headaches all through second grade and was losing weight. Since he started learning by your method, he hasn't been sick one day, and has gained weight rapidly to where he has a perfect physique. Needless to say, we are grateful. Thank you so much for your excellent effort in helping countless parents, such as ourselves, in warding off the educational crippling of countless children.

W.M.

Westfield, NJ (Now residing in Hendersonville, NC)

My daughter is almost 6 years old and we are home educating her. I have tried a couple of reading programs, most of which were game type learning. None of these produced any results. I recently ordered Alpha-Phonics because I heard Samuel Blumenfeld speak on several shows. Dianna and I are just beginning lesson 5. After going over lessons 3 and 4 Dianna was so excited that she could read that she hugged my neck and told me she loved me. She said, "Oh mommy, my wish is coming true. You and daddy are teaching me to read." What else can I say? I love this systematic way of teaching reading because it produces immediate results and children, as well as adults, like to see progress. By the way, we only spend five to ten minutes a day on this.
