Adventures in Phonics
Adventures in Phonics is a series from Christian Liberty Press, this workbook introduces phonetic principles in a logical sequence. The consistent drills and repetition of concepts will help to ensure mastery as children learn the skills foundational to fluent reading abilities.
My daughter started this book when she was still 4, she is 5 now and half-way though. She's reading 3-4 letter words and sentences. It starts off really easy and gradually increases the challenge. It includes handwriting practice as well as phonics and her handwriting has improved. I had to do it with her for the first 20 pages or so but now she can finish a page independently with a timer in 10-20 minutes (I set the timer for 20, but she finishes early). She enjoys the workbook and takes pride in her improving abilities. She's little so she only does a page a day. I am very happy with this workbook it is affordable and works perfectly.
