There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.
Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.
To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark.
A parent or a teacher has only his lifetime; a good book can teach forever.
Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.
He that loves reading has everything within his reach.
ABC’s with Ace and Christi Kit (our recommended learning to read program)
We believe the the ABC’s with Ace and Christi (Learning-to-Read) program to be the best program available at the moment to help children to learn to read. The program focuses on letter sounds, shapes, and phonics, with children reading fluently in twelve to fifteen weeks, and the program ending in 16 weeks if your child has mastered all the material.
Mastery Based Learning
The ABC’s program recognizes that a child must be able to identify and correctly write the letters of the alphabet, recall and say each letter sound, blend these phonetic sounds together to form words, and learn to take responsibility for learning before being able to learn through self-instructional materials. As such the program enables each child to not only read comprehensively, but also to understand the mastery-based learning approach of ACE, laying a foundation for all future learning.
Child Focused yet Easy for Parents
The program is very easy to follow, with daily step-by-step complete lesson plans with detailed instructions for parents. Of course, the ideal way to accomplish this exciting task is on a one-to-one child to parent ration, which is the incredible advantage that home school children have over their peers. Conclusive studies demonstrate that children who are taught phonics learn to read better and faster than those who did not receive phonics training. ACE incorporates the phonics method in all its reading courses.
Visualized instructions allow students to take the initiative in the learning process and to become independent learners. The curriculum is filled with Bible and animal pictures, coordination development activities, and full-color picture stories, all of which encourage a love for reading. The program also prepares children for the individualized instruction of the PACE curriculum.
Give your child a sound reading foundation!
