Click on the words up above: “Teach Your Child or Friend to Read 8-23-21” to download a PDF of the book. It is a newly revised version. I posted THIS version on August 23, 2021. You can read it as well as print it off on your own printer. If you would like a paper copy of this book, please use the “contact me” button at the top of the page and email me. I accept PayPal and Venmo. I will print it off and 3-hole punch it for $5.00 plus shipping, and then I will mail it to you. I can also take it to my local office supply store and have it bound with a plastic binding for about $4.00 more, so $9.00 for a printed, plastic-bound book, plus shipping.
“Teach your Child or Student How to Read” is 78 pages long. About half of the book is a collection of charts just for reference. Only about 30 pages is actual “reading.” The last 8 or so pages is a complete list of every lesson and word contained in the optional workbook: “Teach Your Child or Student how to Read, Write, and Spell.” This way, you do NOT have to print off the workbook, you can just look at the list of words, and have your child or student copy the words down in his or her own notebook.
I updated the workbooks on August 21, 2021. The Workbook is divided into sections, each section uses about 10 pieces of paper. If you want to, you can print off the “back side” of your section so that there is lots of space for practicing writing words and/or sentences, but you don’t have to. I can send you a printed workbook, a dollar per section, for a total of $12.00, for just 3-hole punched; with plastic binding: add $4.00, so it will cost $15.00 for the entire workbook plus binding. You can tell me what sections you want printed off.
I named the different sections after the “Radio Alphabet.” I am NOT going to assign “grade levels” to the various workbook levels because everybody learns to read at different rates and ages. I happen to have my Ham radio license, KI7AHJ is my “call sign.” So, I thought it would be fun to name the workbooks after the “Radio Alphabet.” They are just completely generic “levels.” I broke the workbook up into sections so that most computers might be able to handle the large amount of information, one chunk at a time.
I suggest you buy a 3-ring binder, if you end up printing and 3-hole punching the workbook pages. I also recommend you write the date on the top of each page that your student completes so that you can see the progress your student makes. For fun, you can buy reward stickers from the dollar store and when your student can read the words on that page, put a sticker on it!
