Alphaphonics Reading Readiness Training Program.
South San Francisco Unified School District, CA.
One of the twelve exemplary programs summarized in the Introduction to Right to Read's "Effective Reading Programs: Summaries of 222 Selected Programs" (CS001934), this program uses an organized phonics system to increase the reading readiness of one school's kindergarten children, many of whom have bilingual parents. In a careful sequence of activities, the children learn to name, sound, and write one letter at a time. The program includes a number of devices to motivate pupils and catch their interest, including an imaginary character from outer space who provides frequent rewards. Each child, when ready, is encouraged to begin reading stories and books, and receives special rewards for these achievements. (WR/AIR)
