Reading with Phonics

Ever since the sight word method replaced phonics as the way to teach children to read and spell, there have been arguments -sometimes called "the reading wars" - for and against phonics. The author remembers far enough back to the days before all this started - when teaching letters and sounds went without saying and parents could depend on the school system to teach their children to read. Reading difficulties forced theorists to re-think their strategies so they came up with a philosophy of reading: that children would learn to read on their own because they want to learn to read. There would be plenty of books classed as "children's literature" and teachers would be "facilitators." In Reading With Phonics, the author discusses reading methods and arguments for and against phonics. She tells about some of the children she has tutored since retiring from teaching. An earlier book, Learn To Read From Sounds with an accompanying cassette tape on which phonetically arranged words are read is also available from Trafford Publishing.

The ability to read is the key to educational achievement, and poor literacy skills will limit a person's opportunities throughout life. The Committee's inquiry examines current practice in schools used to teach children to read, in order to consider which method works best based on available evidence. Recognition is given that the subject is a complex one and is also influenced by a range of factors outside a school's control. Issues discussed include the impact of the National Literacy Strategy (NLS); literacy teaching methods including the phonics method, which focuses on sound-letter correspondence; the need to promote reading for pleasure; research evidence findings; barriers to reading acquisition; learning difficulties and disabilities. Current statistics indicate that around 20 per cent of children aged 11 years still underachieve in reading and writing skills for their age level. The Committee's recommendations include the need for a review of the NLS prescribed methodology for the teaching of reading in primary schools, and that further large-scale comparative research should be commissioned by the DfES to determine which methods are most effective.

Mackie Ramsay’s reading program is Magic! Our son was struggling with reading in second grade when Mackie began working with him for twenty minutes a day. In just six weeks there was not only rapid improvement, but he became very excited about reading for the very first time. He looked forward to each lesson and eagerly learned the ‘secrets’ that gave him access to the mastery of his letters. Now he is eleven and is devouring adult fiction, the more pages the better. He is in the highest reading and spelling programs in his class. I have recommended Mackie to many of our son’s friends with similar results. It is a great gift that Mackie gives – the gift of not only reading well, but of reading with JOY. —Alexandra Kennedy, MA, MFT, psychotherapist and author of Losing a Parent (Harper Collins, 1991). CD Alphabet Adventures included inside the back cover. Lyrics Mackie Ramsay, and MaryLee Sunseri. Music composition by MaryLee Sunseri, singer/ songwriter and the winner 2 American Library Notables, and 4 Parents Choice Awards for young children’s music. The songs on the disc that accompany this book are absolutely entrancing—a perfect way to reinforce the letters for children. Each song is unique and beautifully produced — I find myself singing them all the time! —Barbara Lopez, Music Instructor, Cabrillo College. Composer, “Body Songs.” Published by Harper Collins in the “Health for Life” program, grades K –3.
