I was a first year teacher who had just been hired to teach in one of those tiny towns that have few children and schools that are composed of five grades in one room. I had trained for elementary, so I was game for this challenge. But I had some strong opinions about the reading program I wished to use.
Teach Your Child to Read In 100 Easy Lessons is an excellent reading program. But it isn't really geared for a classroom. It was intended for parents to teach their children in the comfort of their own home.
Which indeed, I am now doing. I know this program is still used by many home-schooling parents, at least. And as we set out on our new venture of creating curriculum, it seems silly to just sit on these printables and not offer them for others' use. So, we decided to do just that.
I will be uploading these printables as free materials to supplement the excellent phonics program for those who are using it.
UPDATE: This is a popular link on Pinterest, and I decided to consolidate my freebie worksheets that go along with "Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons". They are now available for free download at this link.
UPDATE #2: In addition to the above Freebie, I now also offer a Free Packet for this reading program that includes more supplemental worksheets, easy crafts, flash cards and other helpful activities. You will need to have completed Lesson 40 to make the most of this free packet, but check it out!
In addition, I also now offer packets of printables that coincide with the lessons of "How To Teach Your Child To Read in 100 Easy Lessons".
After going through the first five lessons, this packet will be helpful: After Five Phonics
Once you complete lesson 10, you'll find this packet to be helpful: After Ten Phonics
And after getting through lesson 15, you'll be moving into larger packet territory with this packet:
We're trying to keep costs super low, and quality high, so check out the links and see if these will be helpful for you and your kiddos. Happy Reading!
We now offer a Bundle for the first 50 lessons, and this will be a cost-saving way to pick up these supplements, all the way through Lesson 50.
In addition, we are in process on the lessons 55 through 100. Some packets are already up and available in our store (After 55) and (After 60). Keep posted or follow us here on our blog or at our store to stay up on the latest news.
