With its focus on how students use phonics to read and write, not just how much phonics a student knows, Phonics They Use includes numerous developmentally appropriate activities for helping students with fluency, rhyme-based decoding, spelling, and more. Updated throughout, this new edition devotes increased attention to morphology as the key to decoding, spelling, and building meaning for big words; includes a new set of lessons, Compound Combos, designed to help teachers introduce morphology to students; introduces a list of 50 key words, the Nifty Thrifty Fifty, which contain a common example for all the common prefixes, suffixes, and spelling changes; includes a new chapter presenting a series of lessons on how to gradually teach these 50 words and how manipulating the parts of these 50 words can help decode, spell, and unlock the meaning of over 300 other words; and presents a new chapter on phonics and spelling interventions for older struggling readers.

Blumenfeld, first available 38 years ago has without change, continued to be an outstanding resource to teach the Three R's. It has not changed because it works so well. Its methodology is timeless!! It is a whole school in one book for only $ 29.95. Its three parts are (1) Sam Blumenfeld's amazingly easy to teach systematic, intensive phonics READING instruction program. (2) His effective CURSIVE HANDWRITING program and (3) his equally effective ARITHMETIC PROGRAM. Has been used by 100,000's parents, teachers and tutors. Mary Pride, leading homeschooling materials reviewer, calls it a best value. 298 pages. How To Tutor works at ALL ages. Anyone who can read can teach the 3 R's with it. WHY IS HOW TO TUTOR IMPORTANT? Dr. Blumenfeld warns: Most parents wait until their child is having difficulty at school before they think of providing remediation. Sometimes the child is so far behind, so confused, so frustrated by not learning in the first two grades, that the remedial program looks long and difficult. However, proper tutoring at the preschool level or in the first two grades, as a preventive measure, can make sure that the child has the foundation on which to build achievement. How To Tutor provides parents and teachers with a complete instructional program: step-by-step lesson plans in the Three R's. It originally was to help public school students. Since then the continued decline in many public schools made HOMESCHOOLING much more important. Homeschool families discovered what a gem this book is for them. HERE ARE THE THREE SECTIONS: PART (1) READING: The big problem in schooling today. How To Tutor shows how to avoid the confusion in teaching reading that prevails in our schools today. 117 complete lessons. Contains everything you need to teach your student to be a top reader. You learn the dirty little secret professional educators keep from you: It is really EASY TO TEACH READING! There are only 44 sounds (Phonograms) you need to teach your student to build a high level of reading skill. PART (2) CURSIVE HANDWRITING: Many Parents and Grandparents today are often shocked to learn that in many schools cursive is not taught. With How To Tutor you are given all the tools you need to teach this important skill with ease. Here is another little secret: Cursive can be taught BEFORE printing (ball & stick). There are only THREE basic strokes involved in cursive handwriting. Most children can learn these at a surprisingly early age. Learning about this will amaze you. 73 complete lessons. PART (3) ARITHMETIC: Quoting Dr. Blumenfeld: In teaching arithmetic it is important to convey the genius of the system itself. Next to the alphabet, it is the greatest mental tool ever devised by man. We should approach the subject with the excitement it deserves. Any teacher who makes arithmetic dull does so because he does not understand its beautiful simplicity, logic and facility which permit us to do so much with so little. HTT Arithmetic covers addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, weights, time, and the calendar. Everything up to just before geometry and algebra. All this in 67 easy lessons. FINAL WORD: Anyone can use these lesson plans: Students, Parents, Teachers, Tutors, Retired Teachers, Housewives and Grandparents. Tutoring can be a good way to earn extra money while aiding people who need help to improve their reading, handwriting and arithmetic ability. Some of the claims we make may appear unbelievable.

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!
