Back in the year 1956, a little first-grade girl named, Candy, struggled to read. It was so sad, because Candy had entered her first grade school year with high hopes of learning to read only to have her hopes squashed and her self-image crushed.
However, Candy's true story doesn't end there because not only did little Candy receive the reading help she so desperately needed, but in just six months, because of the reading instruction she received, Candy went from being the worst reader in her class to being the best reader in her class as a direct result of her phonics instruction.
Today, Candy can read every word on every page of every book placed in front of her.
So what was the secret to Candy's reading success? What was the teaching phonics secret? The end of Candy's reading struggles arrived when Candy was sent away to a little white cottage behind her school to receive extra reading instruction that utilized three phonics approaches: Synthetic, Linguistic, and Analytic. As a result, Candy learned how to sound every word on every page placed in front of her.
So how can teaching phonics help the children of today? Today, teaching phonics can utilize that same phonics system that taught little Candy to read back in 1956. It is available for purchase, except that it has been upgraded for today's generation of children. Moreover, Candy's 3WAY Phonics approach has now become a 4WAY Phonics approach with the addition of Rs: A Phonics: rhyme, rhythm, and alliteration.
The author of the Candy 4WAY Phonics Curriculum is Carol Kay, a retired reading and phonics Christian school teacher and tutor for over 28 years (and a very close friend of Candy's).
