Phonics Pathways

Clear Steps to Easy Reading and Perfect Spelling, 10TH EDITION

This tenth edition of the classic Phonics Pathways teaches students of all ages the rudiments of phonics and spelling using a time-tested, practical, and foolproof method. New to this edition are pictures illustrating every sound introduced, lessons in dividing multi-syllable words, and nonsense word reviews to ensure learning.

Written in an easy-to-use format (with help from Dewey the Bookworm(R)), 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 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

"Phonics Pathways is the best book on the market for parents, teachers, or tutors who want to teach early reading skills. It provides research-based, explicit, systematic phonics and multi-syllable instruction in easy, self-guided lessons." --CATHERINE FROGGATT, R.N., Michigan State Director, The National Right to Read Foundation

"Phonics Pathways is a wonderful teaching tool! Every kindergarten and first grade teacher should have a copy in their hands. If this were the case, intervention in the grades that follow would be a thing of the past." --PAMELA M. BARRET, instructional coach and consultant
