This is an Australian resource, created to teach writing, reading and pronunciation of words simultaneously and phonetically. It is very thorough, provides rules for placement of various spellings of sounds, and is easy to use. I particularly like it because my son (primary school grade 1 level) has a need to understand systems and principles, and the other methods of learning English we had come across rely on memory and sight words, which he found frustrating.
Understanding why a particular spelling is used for a particular sound in a particular word is giving him more confidence in attempting to write for himself. I really enjoy using LEM phonics with my son.
