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. This one book supplies parents with all the tools they need.Over the years of her teaching career, Jessie Wise has seen good reading instruction fall prey to trendy philosophies and political infighting. Now she has teamed with dynamic coauthor 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.

Step-by-step phonics instruction, very thorough/comprehensive. No pictures, by design, though the text kids are supposed to be reading is much smaller than standard readers use. I would think this would also help a student with learning various rules of spelling, as it clearly shows patterns with groups of examples.

Very clear step-by-step lessons and recommendations throughout. Great for homeschooling, remedial help, or just extra help teaching phonics.
