2. Uncovering the Logic of English: A Common-Sense Approach to Reading, Spelling, and Literacy

Top 10 Best Books to Read in Reading Skills Reference - August 2021

Multiple award-winning book on reading and spelling education that will transform how you think about English! Do you know a student who is good at math or science but struggles with reading or spelling? Has a student ever asked you a question about English spelling to which you replied, "That's an exception"? Have you ever abandoned a word while writing because spell check didn't recognize it? Discover this revolutionary method that Dr. Temple Grandin called "really helpful for teaching reading to children who are mathematical pattern thinkers..." Predominant reading methods require students to break the complex code of English without help. This has resulted in low literacy rates and explains why many highly educated professionals cannot spell. By revealing the logical patterns underlying 98% of English words, Uncovering the Logic of English eliminates the need to guess and provides a logical solution to English spelling. Simple answers are given for questions such as: Why is there a silent final E in have ? Why don't we drop the E in noticeable ? Why is discussion spelled with -sion rather than -tion ? As the rules unfold it becomes apparent how this knowledge is vital to reversing the educational crisis that is plaguing America. This slim volume is easy to read and accessible to parents and classroom teachers. A thorough appendix summarizes the most important concepts for quick reference.

7. Sounding Out the Sight Words: An Alternative to Rote Memorization

Top 10 Best Books to Read in Reading Skills Reference - August 2021

Sounding Out the Sight Words introduces the phonetic concepts at work in the 220 Dolch words and 95 Dolch nouns, a total of 315 of our most common words, in sixty-seven simple lessons. With these instant lessons, rather than teaching one new sight word each day for your child to memorize, you teach one bite-size phonics concept each day. Each lesson is designed for a busy parent or teacher to deliver in two to ten minutes, simply by reading aloud the brief lesson on the back and helping the student sound out the sample words on the front. In sixty-seven lessons, instead of learning sixty-seven Dolch words, students gain the tools to read all 315 as well as thousands of other words! Sounding Out the Sight Words was created in collaboration between Logic of English author Denise Eide and parent Cindy Kringelis. The initial inspiration and structure were Cindy's; she wanted to help her daughter master the sight words taught by her school and, after reading Denise's book, Uncovering the Logic of English, created this series of "instant lessons" to help educators and parents teach the Dolch words logically through phonics using the concepts she had learned. With the methodical approach in these lessons, you can deliver sound instruction while refreshing your own understanding of the concepts necessary to read these common words, providing expert coaching as your student learns to read and spell with ease.
