"Plaid" Phonics: Grade 1
“The variety of activities and colorful presentation make these workbooks appealing to children, and large print reduces the intimidation factor.” - Cathy Duffy, author of Top 100 Picks for Homeschooling Curriculum
55 MILLION READERS
Learning to read is an important step in your child's education, and Phonics is designed to help that process. By learning the parts and sounds of words, your child will be better equipped to tackle new challenges in Reading. “Plaid” Phonics is a homeschool program designed to introduce and solidify your child's Reading foundation. This curriculum not only promotes Reading fluency, but also introduces critical thinking skills, which your child will use throughout his or her academic career.
Originally known as Modern Curriculum Press (MCP) "Plaid" Phonics and now published by Pearson, our comprehensive K-6 program will help you teach your child the building blocks of language and literacy. “Plaid” Phonics has a long history, as it has been helping children learn Reading skills for more than 50 years. Furthermore, the program has trained more than 55 million children.
GRADE I MILESTONES
“Plaid” Phonics Grade 1 is the second program in the series. It was designed to help you teach your child foundational Phonics knowledge you will build on later in his or her education. During the Grade 1 program, your child will get the opportunity to focus on these key areas:
- Recognize basic parts of a sentence, including capitalization and punctuation
- Read words with a single syllable that have simple spellings, such as "cat"
- Break longer words into syllables to try and sound them out
- Read simple words that have irregular spellings, such as "where"
ENGAGE EVERY LEARNER
“Plaid” Phonics was designed with plenty of engaging activities meant to help your child become a fluent reader. Each lesson-planning guide is broken into six parts to solidify Phonics knowledge for your child. He or she will learn letter recognition, how to write letters, phonemic awareness and around-symbol correspondence. Every lesson features a Picture Dictionary page. Additionally, an array of multisensory teaching options addresses different learning styles.
You can round out your child's Reading education by teaching Spelling alongside it. In fact, “Plaid” Phonics can be used in conjunction with MCP Spelling Workout. Be sure to select the corresponding MCP Spelling Workout program to ensure the two curricula are teaching your child at the same level.
The materials included in the Homeschool “Plaid” Phonics Grade 1 bundle were designed to help you work toward the Level 1 Reading benchmarks. The bundle includes a student edition, teacher’s guide and parent guide. For more information visit the Features and Benefits page.
