FUNdamentals: A Research-Based, Phonics Tutorial Learn To Read Program. [Educational Kit].
FUNdamentals puts the "FUN" back in learning for all age groups. FUNdamentals is an intensive, systematic phonics learn-to-read program that helps improve comprehension, spelling, and penmanship. It is designed for use by every age group. Formulated for use with learners from preschool through adult ages, FUNdamentals is the key to learning to read the English language. Parents can use it to teach young children the skill or reading before they enter school. It is a useful home tutorial to quickly and properly teach reading to any grade level K-12. College students and adults with poor reading skills can utilize this product in the privacy of their homes and achieve quick solutions to reading difficulties. The program's educational kit covers learning areas such as phonics, comprehension, writing, spelling, vocabulary, handwriting, content analysis, and listening skills. A 30-minute instructional video gives viewers through the process of learning to read, while 6 audiocassettes further the student through the simple, logical, step-by-step learn to read program. Students begin by learning about the origins of the English alphabetic system of reading and writing, the sound symbol relationships, and how these sounds are used to make words. The students progress on to sentences and finally to stories (always reading for meaning and comprehension). All learning modalities are used to accommodate both visual and auditory learners. The student is enthusiastically encouraged to use all the senses by singing, exercising, and doing other activities that reinforce the learning process. All drill practice is done with stimulating games. (RS)
