How to Use The Sound Beginnings Program
Q & A on Teaching Reading
Sample - Lesson 5
Sample - Lesson 17
Sound Beginnings: Complete Package w/CD
$89.00
By Julia Fogassy. Complete program includes: teacher manual, worksheets, tablet, composition notebook, phonogram cards, Bible Story Reader, CD, and pencil w/gripper. Here is a program that makes teaching reading, writing, spelling and phonics easy. Based on "The Writing Road to Reading," Sound Beginnings offers step-by-step teaching dialogue and well organized daily lesson plans. The fourth edition features a 2000-word spelling list with suggested weekly schematic for its use. As designed, the program takes four years to complete--one year for the scripted lessons, and three years to work through the spelling list. Ideally, these four years would be first, second, third and fourth grade, however, some families begin in kindergarten and others begin in second grade. Materials for additional students can be purchased separately.

sb notebook.gif Sound Beginnings: Composition Notebook
$7.00
NOTE: The first half of this notebook no longer contains story-paper. Each page has lines from top to bottom. The composition notebook is to be used during the last eighteen weeks of the Sound Beginnings Program. The child uses it for three activities: write the final sentence dication of the week, to alphabetize spelling words by first letter, and to collect spelling words by type (i.e. the five kinds of silent 'e'; antonyms, homophones, etc.).

Early Reader.jpg Early Reader's Bible
$17.00
By Gilbert Beers. Recommended as part of the Sound Beginnings Program, this is a very good beginning reader. Over 500 pages and sixty-four Bible stories from Old and New Testaments, all written within a standard first grade vocabulary. None of the lessons are keyed to any story in the reader, so the program may be used effectively with any other reading material. This is a Protestant publication, so there are a couple small problems (for details, see the Introduction to Sound Begininngs in the articles section of this web site), but the "Catholic" version has the identical problems.
