What to do if my child is not a "banana" reader?

What to do if my child is not a "banana" reader?

Renee EllisonNov 17, '19

Some students are what I call "banana readers."  You can toss 'em a banana and they learn how to read with ease.

Other students are stumped by the entire reading process for months and months and months.  With those "readers" one feels like one is pulling teeth to help them.  They need a consistent approach that only lays one concept in front of them at a time until it is totally mastered--just as cleanly as math steps--with no ambiguity.  The child is taught that step until they  get it right every time.  This is what our Fast Phonics program is designed to do.  Until the child has conquered the each easy micro-step the program never even lets him/her know that more advanced reading steps/challenges exist.  Large-size clarity and consistency over micro-steps does the job.

If your beginning reader is more in this second (most common) category, you'll find that ordering the Fast Phonics gets the job done far easier and faster than other phonics programs and (by the way) at much less expense for you.  Some reading programs cost several hundred dollars and take twice as long to teach.  Fast Phonics teaches all the phonetic sounds by large tightly designed cartoons germane to the letter shape.  The child retains the sound almost immediately because the cartoons are so cleverly constructed the child can't forget them.   

In our program, the parent teaches only the phonetic sound first.  This eliminates confusion with the alphabet names.  It also uses only one trigger word per shape (i.e. moon for the "m" sound, not complicated also with mud, mush, munchies, etc.)  We DELAY alphabet names and capital letters until AFTER the child is already reading 3 letter words.  And using only the one trigger word works like magic, giving instant recall.

After this solid intro, the parent continues to teach reading with three-letter words. These words are then made into very funny three-letter word sentences and stories.

After the student shows a command of these short words, the program moves on to four-letter words with long vowel sounds.  The student has to work through 160 examples of converting short vowel sounds to long vowel sounds before they are EVER used in sentences containing these more advanced words.  This super-solid next step eliminates confusion henceforth.
This succinct good help is available now.  Ordering Fast Phonics will save you and your child much unnecessary academic stress.
