I was recently sent a wonderful package of books from The Reading Lesson to review. This package included:
The Reading Lesson Book with Interactive CD: The Reading Lesson Book is 444 pages and is divided up into 20 step-by-step lessons that are very easy to use. Each lesson takes only 15-20 minutes a day to work through. The Reading Lesson CD (you can purchase this along with The Reading Lesson Book or separately) offers an interactive and fun approach to teaching the sounds. The CD closely follows the lessons in the book, but provides a fun and entertaining way to learn. (You can purchase The Reading Lesson book as a physical book or an ebook. With the ebook, you would be able to print out pages to use for multiple children. With the physical book, you would need to photocopy the workpages if you did not want your child to work directly in the book.)
The Storybook CD: This CD contains 40 short stories that your child can learn to read. The stories start simple and progressively get harder. You can read the stories on the computer, or you have the option to print them out and make little books. (It looks like you can purchase this as a physical CD or as a download.)
Verbal Math Lessons – Level 1: This book is for ages 4-7 (Grades K-1).
Verbal Math Lessons – Level 2: This book is for ages 7-8 (Grades 1-2).
This is a fun way to learn math…with no writing! There are no dreary worksheets, but your children will learn math as a game. You simply read the problem to your child and let him solve it in his head. I can definitely see the benefit of these books for the early grades when children may be frustrated with too much writing. Not only will they get a good grounding in math concepts, but they will learn how to do a lot of mental math! Both of these books can be purchased in either hard copy or ebook format.
CLICK HERE to go their bookstore where you can purchase these wonderful materials! I know I plan on using some of these materials with my kids! They are going to LOVE it!
