Debbie Hepplewhite's Synthetic Phonics for Can Do Cubes a New Phonics Program for Home Use.
Recommended by the Dyslexia Institute.
Product Now Available. The Brain Trainers have been searching high and low for a home study phonics program that we feel is compatable with the PACE and Master the Code Programs and have finally found one. It is Can Do Cubes Systematic Phonics. It is not created by the same people, but the same thought and research quality are found to exist.
Like Master the Code, Can Do Cubes Systematic Phonics starts with the sounds (43-44 different sounds depending upon who you consult) of English and then sets out the written codes that can be used to represent those sounds. Also like Master the Code, Can Do Cubes Systematic Phonics will teach all the sounds and codes of the English language in about 12 weeks.Unlike many other programs on the market, Can Do Cubes Systematic Phonics does not insult the intelligence of older learners with difficulties. Lets face it NO one wants to read about fuzzy bunnies when they are over the age of 7! At the same time, is it is set up with the student in mind who may have difficulty writing...this includes very young children who have yet to master fine motor skills. Can Do Cubes Systematic Phonics can be used with multiple children with the purchase of just one kit! We are also working on importing the companion program that addresses grammar usage in an exciting and dynamic hands on way.
Both the Phonics and Grammar program are non-consumable in nature. Using a multisensory medium, they are a great fit for children who learn through touch and manipulatives.
***Please note that if you or your student has an auditory processing disorder, that issue will need to be resolved before starting either Can Do Cubes Systematic Phonics or Master the Code. Testing can be obtained on line in the comfort of your home for only $29.95. For more information go to The Gibson Test of Brain Skills.
CANDO CUBES Phonics - a whole new way of doing phonics starting with the sounds
THIS PRODUCT IS ONLY SHIPPED VIA USPS MEDIA MAIL. SHIPPING AND HANLDING INCLUDED IN PRICE
A hands on phonics program imported from Great Britain that uses a "sound to code" approach, also known as synthetic phonics. Tara Jenner of The Brain Trainers is one of the editors of the North American version of this product "translating" the British pronunciation rules, spelling and word usage for compatability in North American. Double set includes Stage One (the simple codes) and Stage two (the complex codes). Why teach spelling and reading as two separate subjects when you can teach them simultaneously!
This new program is consistent with the phonics approach presented in our trainer driven program Master the Code and covers 44 sounds of the English language and all the ways those sounds can be written. The program takes about 12 weeks to complete. This program is not intended for individuals who have auditory processing problems. Those issues should be addressed first.
Because of the unique engraved wooden cube manipulatives of this program, it can be used with all ages from 3 years old on up. It does not insult the intelligence of older more mature students but can also be used with the very young and those who have difficulty with writing.
This program is visual and kinesthetic in its approach, and does not require a masters degree by a parent or teacher before beginning instruction! This product is not consumable and, therefore, can be used with many ages as phonics is being introduced in your home. A school version will soon be available for those who are interested in using this product in co-op, private and public school environments. Please contact us if you are interested in that version.
