HOME READING PROGRAM

starting from infancy!

The Alphabet

Singing the ABC Song and reciting the alphabet for your baby or young child is the first step towards reading in the Home Reading Program. The right kind of music is a powerful tool for brain development and for developing a baby's hearing, Learning to distinguish sounds is a major milestone for the baby, and the Alphabet Song lays a foundation for phonemic awareness, which is the ability to hear the sounds that the letters (called phonograms) represent. Singing the ABC Song and reciting the alphabet to a baby stimulates his curiosity and interest in the Alphabet Flashcards and in uncovering the mystery of the alphabet.

UPPERCASE AND LOWERCASE LETTERS
The flashcards are double-sided. One side shows the upper-case (capital) letters and the other side shows the lowercase (small letters). After showing the uppercase letters alone, three times, and showing the lowercase letters alone, three times, then both the uppercase and lowercase letters are shown together three more times by turning the flashcards around and showing each side of the flashcard. The program then moves on to the Beginning Phonograms (see below), which depict the sounds, called phonemes, the letters of the alphabet represent. You may want to periodically review the Aalphabet Flashcards if the child shows interest.

Continue singing the ABC song and the child will eventually learn to sing it. With the ABC song the child will have mastered alphabetical order and gained the desire to learn to read, and much more. He will have a basic foundation of letter sounds, contained within the names of the letters, to use in decoding words. And knowing the alphabet makes it easier to learn the alphabet phonograms. Instructions are included.

Phonograms with Words

The names of the phonograms are not the names of the letters that the phonograms consist of. The names of the phonograms are the same as the sounds associated with the letters. A phonogram is a sybol for sound, called phoneme, which symbols consist of letters. There is a word for each phoneme that the phonograms represent, and the phonogram being shown stands out in the word. Words are selected so that the child can decode them when the word is first presented. Instructions are included.

Magenta Colored Phonograms

The phonograms are colored magenta. All of the phonograms, from a to z, are presented before showing the accompanying word flashcards. The phonogram being learned stands out in the word because it is also colored magenta, while the other letters of the word are black. Words are selected so that the child can decode them when the word is first presented. Instructions are included.

BEGINNING PHON0GRAMS WITH WORDS
These are alphabet phonograms. Some letters of the alphabet have more than one phoneme (letter sound). Flashcards are double-sided and each letter-sound (phoneme) has its own phonogram flashcard with a word on the other side, totaling 41 flashcards, one for each phoneme.

INTERMEDIATE PHON0GRAMS WITH WORDS
Intermediate phonograms contain two or more letters that combined have one sound only. Flashcards are double-sided with the phonogram on one side and the word on the other side.

ADVANCED PHON0GRAMS WITH WORDS
Advanced phonograms contain two or more letters combined that have two or more sounds for the same phonogram. Each phoneme (phonogram sound) has its own flashcard with phonogram and word.

Black Phonograms

For those without a color printer the phonograms are colored black. All of the phonograms, from a to z, are presented before showing the accompanying word flashcards. The phonogram being learned stands out in the word because it is also colored black, while the other letters of the word are gray. Words are selected so that the child can decode them when the word is first presented. Instructions are included.

BEGINNING PHON0GRAMS WITH WORDS
These are alphabet phonograms. Flashcards are double-sided and each letter-sound (phoneme) has its own flashcard with a word on the other side, totaling 41 flashcards, one for each phoneme.

INTERMEDIATE PHON0GRAMS WITH WORDS
Intermediate phonograms contain two or more letters that combined have one sound only. Flashcards are double-sided with the phonogram on one side and the word on the other side.

ADVANCED PHON0GRAMS WITH WORDS
Advanced phonograms contain two or more letters combined that have two or more sounds for the same phonogram. Each phoneme (phonogram sound) has its own flashcard with phonogram and word.

Word Flashcards

These words are the same as the words that accompany the Phonograms with Words Flashcards, and they are used together with the Phonograms with Words Flashcards. All of the letters in these word flashcards are uniformly colored black. Soon after the child is given a phonogram and shown the accompanying word containing the stand-out phonogram, he should be given the same word, again, shown with all black letters. With the stand-out phonograms the focus is mainly upon the primary phonogram being learned in the word, where with the black lettered words the main emphasis is placed upon decoding the entire word. Instructions are included.

Home Math Program

Math Diamonds help the child develop the ability to perceive numbers. Child development specialists say numbers perception should be introduced before introducing numerals. If you show the child pictures of objects, such as diamonds or dots, and say the numeral, the child will know what it means when you introduce the numerals. He will know how many comprises one or ten.

The diamonds are randomly placed because it is recommended by child brain develoopment specialist Glenn Doman that in order to develop numbers perception objects should be randomly placed, as otherwise the child would be memorizing patterns and would not be truly learning to perceive how many objects there were on a page. Doman says that individuals who have developed numbers perception can look at a field of cattle and tell you how many head there are in the field without counting them.

Glenn Doman says that 'dots' are his copyrighted material, so I have no dots to ofer, only diamonds which work the same.
