FUN-O Guide Activity Book
A child-focused, family-centered guide for teaching phonograms.
The on-the-go, wherever-you-go FUN-O-Guide Activity Book is an at-your-fingertips resource to teach the reading code. While The ABCs of the Sounds We Read introduces the 72 phonograms, the FUN-O-Guide helps parents teach Wordy’s 72 phonograms through a wide variety of fun-filled activities. The front of each of the 72 phonogram pages in this spiraled, glossy activity book presents the phonogram, the illustration, and jingle. The back of each page is loaded with teaching strategies and family fun activities to help you teach not only the 72 phonograms; but the various components of literacy.
Originally the flagship product in our program, the FUN-O-Guide is a popular product many parents and teachers choose for the added convenience and portability. It is included in the Plus and Premium Programs.
The ABCs of the Sounds We Read
Going Beyond the Alphabet to Discover the Reading Code (with Audio CD)
Winner of a 2015 Moonbeam Children's Book Award for Literacy! This is not just another children’s book. It is the the ONLY book of its kind. We take you beyond the ABCs to the world of phonograms, the sounds that make up all the words we read. Learn the proper pronunciation of each phonogram with the read-along audio CD. The colorful, action-packed pictures encourage much discussion to stimulate visual, language, comprehension and critical thinking skills even at very young ages. Once you know the phonograms–a simple extension of the 26 letters of the alphabet–you can say them, show them, and teach them.
Phonogram Sound Dictionary and Spelling Clues
The Building Blocks for English Words
Good readers aren't always good spellers.
How can I look up a word in a dictionary if I don't know how to spell it? Try looking it up by sounds! Discover spelling patterns and “clues to choose” how to spell words with Wordy's Sound Dictionary and Spelling Clues.
Refer to Wordy’s Phonogram Sound Dictionary and Spelling Clues as you introduce sounds for blending and spelling. Check each phonogram to discover if there are “Clues to Choose” which sounds to use or letter patterns associated with it.
Train the Brain eReaders Complete Set
Build on Small Steps that Produce Success.
“Train the Brain” books are written with controlled vocabulary using phonograms previously taught so the reader experiences success time and time again. Phonograms are introduced and added to each decodable "Train the Brain" reader in a systematic sequence. Each phonogram is presented in a story and used multiple times for sound and pattern recognition. As children learn to read more phonograms, the readers become more sophisticated. The complete set covers all 72 phonograms. They are designed to be used along Wordy's Road Through the Reading Code.
Train the Brain Beginning to Blend eReaders
Our Beginning to Blend eReaders teach children to blend phonograms that make one sound only. These 20 eReaders blend consonants with the following vowel partner phonograms: ai, ay, ee, igh, oa, oe, eigh, er, ur, ir and ear.
