Combination teacher's manual and student workbook

"This book is an abundant resource of phonetic exercises. These exercises gave my student confidence and a momentum to move smoothly along in her reading efforts because once she finished the lessons and exercises, she remembered how to spell and read the words. This book is well organized and at your fingertips to use. I am so glad to have found this resource!" - Martha Wilson, Literacy Tutor

"I wish I had this book when I was homeschooling my kids." - Susan Christensen
