The Benefits of Rocket Phonics
Children enter school concerned about how they will fit in. The most important person in the classroom is the teacher. Happy teacher – happy child. A child who starts school reading better understands the textbooks, the homework and the teacher’s instructions. This makes the teacher happy.
Rocket Phonics uses the strongest phonics system available so that the child always knows how to sound out the word. Each word sounded out correctly builds the child’s confidence. Your child becomes more willing to try another word. This accelerates reading skill gain until they are reading above grade level.
Reading is the gateway skill to academic success. Reading at or above grade level gives your child the understanding he or she needs to succeed in every subject. Only one out of three children read at grade level which puts your child at the top of his or her class!
As Allison said after leaping to the head of her class in first grade, “I’m smart now.”
How Does It Work
You start out playing with the Play and Read cards. This teaches the phonics system so they can sound out words. We then have them blend sounds into words in a different game. As their reading stamina increases we advance the games from words to phrases to sentences and finally stories.
This approach creates a child who loves reading and reads well.
