The Blended Sound-Sight Method of Learning. Second Edition Revised.
Ingham, Anna Gertrude
The beginning reading method explained in this book combines a phonics approach with a sight word/basal reader approach, a method which the author used during her many years in the classroom. The author has found that children can become independent readers in two to four months and may read from 10 to 200 books independently in the first year. Spelling and writing are also stressed in this method. Chapter topics are: the purpose and advantage of the blended sound-sight method, the advanced phonics course taught in grade 1, basic steps and procedures in the blended sound-sight method, the activity set-up, the pre-primer stage, teaching advanced phonics, the individualized library, the teaching of spelling, tying phonics into other subjects, written communication, grouping, what parents should know about reading, individualization, interaction learning climates, and basic procedures when using an individualized approach. Also included are practical helps for teachers such as examples of seatwork, references, and charts. (MKM)
