Finally, a systematic phonics program that is comprehension centered! Fun-Time Phonics! is a fun, easy-to-use program based on the scientific findings of the National Reading Commission. The colorful, game-like activities engage students through listening, thinking, speaking, and reading. Fun-Time Phonics! teaches students that spoken words are composed of individual sounds (phonemes),and those sounds are written with letters. Armed with this understanding of how print works as a code, reading becomes much easier than other more complicated approaches. This program ensures complete phonemic awareness mastery by focusing on vowel isolation, which is often the most challenging-but most important-part of learning to read. Once students grasp how vowels influence the sound of the consonants and control the meaning of the words, they are only a step away from fluency.
