LAYING A STRONG FOUNDATION
- Teachers of Phonics Levels A, B, and C
- Struggling Readers of Any Age
- Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL)
The former Christ-Centered Phonics Master Guide (©2011 or 2013) has been replaced by this Teacher's Guide to Reading Set (Part 200-SET) which includes the Christ-Centered Phonics Teacher's Guide to Reading (Part 200-TGR) plus the Christ-Centered Phonics Charts and Visual Aids 3-ring binder (Part 200-PCV). The latter, which is not sold separately, coordinates with the Christ-Centered Phonics Lessons for Levels A–C.
Re-organizing and expanding the Master Guide's three levels of reading made it possible to have additional instructions for how to more successfully develop each student's high literacy skills and to increase spiritual understanding of the advanced Christ-Centered Phonics Drill Reader!
Note: This complete SET is included in Phonics Beginner's Kit A (Part 001) and Phonics Kit B (Part 002). However, for those who are teaching a struggling reader or someone wanting to learn English as a second language, the Phonics Teacher's Guide to Reading (Part 200-TGR) may be purchased separately in one of the Option Boxes below.
WHY USE CHRIST-CENTERED PHONICS?
Historically, the Hebrew and Colonial children were taught "faith, virtue, and knowledge" as they also learned the alphabet through spiritual rhymes. In fact, because the New England Primer had so greatly exhorted children to fervently know God and obey His truths as they learned to read that Primer, it is still famous today. In fact, Charles H. Spurgeon shared the same vision:
"As we sow we reap. Let us expect our children to know the Lord. Let us from the beginning mingle the name of Jesus with their A B C. Let them read their first lessons from the Bible. It is a remarkable thing that there is no book from which children learn to read so quickly as from the New Testament: there is a charm about that book which draws forth the infant mind."
For that same Christ-glorifying purpose, the Holy Spirit inspired the development of the Christ-Centered Phonics Program to help Christian parent-teachers actively, constantly, and purposefully teach the love, discipline, and understanding of God's Word. Helping students of any age to achieve high literacy skills so they, too, can read the Bible to know our amazing Lord God Almighty can be the greatest gift you ever give them!
This Teacher's Guide to Reading Set provides not only an overview of the entire Christ-Centered Phonics Program but also includes all the phonics charts and visual aids you will need to teach Phonics Levels A, B, and C---with the exception of the Christ-Centered Phonics Flashcards 1-118: Master Set (Part 201-RV) which is included in Phonics Kits A and B.
The Introduction to the Christ-Centered Phonics Teacher's Guide to Reading (Part 200-TGR) provides the following:
- Christ-Centered Phonics Program Chart
- Overview of the Christ-Centered Phonics Program
Part I: Phonics Drill Reader (Teacher's Copy) (pp. 1–124)
Because "... no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ" (1 Cor. 3:11), the PDR's five Phonics Sections center around: Creation, The Fall, The Flood, The Law, and Grace. To fully comprehend the spiritual value of these Themes, we highly recommend reading them to your student(s) in biblical order during five special FOUNDATION DAYS prior to starting to teach the PDR. Together their Scriptures characterize a mini-version of "the whole counsel of God" (Acts 20:27)!
Note: Simple "how to" instructions are in Part II's "Understanding the Phonics Drill Reader" section (pp. 136-137).
