Reading With Phonics Course Overview

These reading courses use phonics to teach children to read. The first grade course consists of 180 lessons which equates 5 lessons per week for 36 weeks. You can watch and use the first 40 lessons of Reading 1 for free and then purchase the remaining 140 lessons. The Reading 2 course has an additional 180 lessons for teaching reading to 2nd grade homeschoolers.

The videos do the heavy lifting. All you have to do is go to the daily lesson, click the video’s PLAY button, and observe how your child does. Also, you must print out the work sheets or answer sheets, and hand them to your child. Then grade them with your student’s assistance.
