Reviews - What do customers think about Workbook 1

A great straightforward Phonics book and Beginning Reader.  Sep 24, 2007
Straightforward and very basic way to thoroughly learn how to read, write, and spell words that follow the rules. I have used these books with my children and in my K-1 class as well. Enough repetition and variety as well as a little bit of silliness to launch them into reading and writing.
Phonics I, II, III  Jun 24, 2004
I taught from a series of books: Primary Phonics I, II, III.
I have lost contact with them and find them hard to find. Without seeing the inside, it is very difficult to know for sure before ordering.

As the description of the books suggests, there were line drawings, word colours and a progressive learning sequence which made these books excellent for teaching.

However, before I order, I'd like to look at the inside of the book (s).

I can be reached at for further clarification should someone know what the inside looks like.

Great for BEGINNING READERS  May 8, 2003
I learned to read with this book. (I was three years old. It works -- what else can I say?) My sisters learned to read with this series. I've used it with other beginning readers. IT WORKS.

The simple line art drawings are easy to understand. The simplicity keeps your attention focused on the words. The type is a good size for little kids, and the font exactly matches how you print the letters.

After you fill in the blanks, you get to color the pictures, which has the effect of making you review the page again.

(I recommend that you have a set of eight basic crayons for use with the book so that the child can compare the word "green" on the page to the word "green" on the crayon label -- especially for boys, as they have a higher risk of being partly color-blind.)

The usual recommendation is that the child should only do one page or a couple of pages a day, as this is more effective for retaining and applying the principles behind reading.

Placement tip: If the child easily and rapidly completes the first five pages, turn to the middle or the last few pages in the book, and if they can read them, then it's time to move them up to the next book.

It's important to remember that this is designed for LITTLE KIDS -- people for whom the research has demonstrated that printing letters neatly is a significant, multi-step cognitive task.

Adults will find it simplistic and boring. It's not printed in vivid colors. It doesn't have flashing lights. It doesn't make sounds, and you can't click on anything.

But if your goal is READING instead of entertainment, then IT WORKS.

There is a "consonant book" that can precede this one if the student has very little knowledge of letters and the sounds they make. It's often better to offer something just a little too easy at first instead of something frustrating. If it turns out that it's really too easy, then the child has earned the right to be moved up to the next book without being forced to complete the first one (unless they just want to).

We seem to live in a society where bells and whistles are a requirement for teaching. These series of books are VERY simple, straight forward primary phonics books. They have black & white text and illustrations. The pictures enhance and reinforce the text rather than distract the reader away from the story. They aren't meant for adult readers, which is the point. The children reading these books are BEGINNING readers. They need to focus on simple words with simple meanings. My kindergartner takes great delight when she accomplishes a book on her own. The books are short, enjoyable and SIMPLE!
Only OK  Oct 25, 2000
This is an unimaginative, almost mind-numbing approach to the subject. It was boring for both a student and a teacher who are both excited about the subject.
