Are you tired of using incomplete teaching resources that show limited results?
Does the thought of your student falling behind, worry you sick?
Have you given up on finding a program that uses a common sense order to maximize your student's potential?
Specifically - do you want your student to have a learning advantage built on effective communication skills while skipping the endless search for quality learning resources?
If you answered "YES" to any of these questions, then take great comfort in knowing that you are NOT alone.
IN FACT, parents and teachers everywhere are faced with the pressing need to find quality resources for their students that help increase effective early childhood development AND eliminate common alphabet learning mistakes.
The TRUTH is - good educators are often unaware of the flawed alphabet teaching methods and materials that slow down a child's understanding and retention - HOWEVER you can now easily correct this.
Watch your student effortlessly learn the alphabet with fun, clear and concise activities in as short as 10 minutes per session.
And the best part is?
Your student will learn how to learn, a vital skill in education that shapes lifelong habits and abilities.
At this early stage, it is essential to focus on the development of the student's phonemic awareness - the ability to hear, identify and arrange phonemes (individual sounds), instead of routine memorization exercises.
By training your student to identify individual letter sounds instead of the limited memorization techniques & exercises, you equip them to decode words along with their sounds even if they have not seen the words beforehand.
This teaching method lays the strong foundation for learning any language and develops important universal communications skills.
So you might be asking yourself:
This program equips you with necessary methods and materials to transform your student into a confident, skilled communicator and thinker.

|Confused or frustrated with the current learning materials.|
|Intimidated by the idea of learning or lesson time.|
The program is broken down into two levels:
26 complete workbooks specifically designed to help teach each letter of the alphabet - starting from the most basic concept of the letter shape to the introduction of the most common sound.
Each letter workbook contains the following sections:
A 367-page workbook that builds on the skills and concepts introduced in Level 1, providing a review to enable students to improve these skills and learn more advanced skills to set the ultimate pre-reading foundation.
Level 2 includes the following topics:
In addition, each level includes:
|A clear teacher's manual that guides you on how to teach each skill and concept.|
|Easy to understand instructions for worksheets and suggestions for implementing the program activities.|

Letter formation is taught using the continuous stroke method versus the traditional ball-and-stick method. This method was selected to eliminate letter reversal problems and to prime students for learning cursive.

The following explains the general policy for teaching multiple students:
No. Learning the Alphabet focuses on understanding the most common letter sounds while building phonemic awareness. The introduction of subsequent letter sounds including long vowel sounds is to be taught after the completion of this program.
Rules for different letter sounds are best introduced once the student has a basic understanding of the letters and their common sound.
Children commonly learn sounds of letters at the beginning of a word more easily than in any other position. For this reason, the Learning the Alphabet Level 1 introduces the beginning letter sound first for each letter, except for the letter X (explained in the following FAQ). Medial and ending letter sounds are introduced in the Learning the Alphabet Level 2 once the child is familiar with the beginning letter sounds and given sufficient practice.
Using this progression provides incremental growth and replaces the learning frustration of harder concepts with a more enjoyable and rewarding learning framework while maximizing your student's effort, capacity and retention.
The most common sound of the letter X is pronounced /ks/ as in the word box. Other sounds include /gz/ as in exam, /z/ as in xylophone, /g/ follow by /zh/ as in luxurious, /k/ follow by /sh/ as in complexion, /e/ follow by /ks/ as in x-ray.
In the English language, few words begin with the letter X, and they commonly have the /z/ sound instead of /ks/ sound. For this reason, the letter X is taught using the ending sound position first.
Additionally, it is reserved to be taught as the last letter in the Learning the Alphabet Level 1 program.
To learn more about the letter X, see How to Teach the Letter X Sound.
A student's learning experience is not a race; it's a lifetime journey. Of course, you believe your child will succeed and grow into their greatest potential while telling yourself, "They will eventually learn and become great readers and writers."
But the truth is, a strong literacy foundation requires quality teaching materials. Most students turn out average because their learning materials are average. They focus on phonics and sight words while neglecting necessary concepts for truly learning how to read and write with confidence.
