Laying a Path: Phonics & Spelling Syllabus

Our mission? To help ALL kids progress in reading and writing, and that starts with training the parents!

Ergo, we are teaching an online parent training course starting March 31st called Laying a Path: Phonics and Spelling! 

This course will be three 90-min sessions (March 31st, April 7th, and April 14th) with lecturing by Rita and I, and Q&A from participants. Parents will be taught the best strategies to help their children (across all age levels) progress in the language areas of phonics and spelling.

Each week, we will demonstrate how to teach the phonics/spelling lessons, then provide strategies for practice of those concepts. 

The schedule will be as follows:

WEEK 1 - Short vowels, blends, short vowel spelling rules, Closed syllables, Open syllables

WEEK 2 - Long vowels, long vowel spelling rules, Silent E syllables, vowel team syllables

WEEK 3 - Jobs of the Silent E,  Double/Drop/Change rules, C+le syllables, R-controlled syllables

Sign-ups close on SUNDAY March 26th. If you are still interested in joining the class, visit and click on the ad on the home page to register!
