Phonics Pathways: Clear Steps to Easy Reading and Perfect Spelling, 9th Edition Now in its ninth edition, Phonics Pathways (with help from Dewey the Bookworm) teaches students of all ages the rudiments of phonics and spelling with an efficient, practical, and foolproof method. Written in an easy-to-use format, Phonics Pathways is organized by sounds and spelling patterns. The patterns are introduced one at a time and slowly built into syllables, words, phrases, and sentences. Printed in a large 8-1/2" x 11" lay-flat format for easy photocopying, Phonics Pathways is filled with illustrative examples, word lists, and practice readings that are 100 percent decodable. While appropriate for K-2 emergent readers, this award-winning book has also been used successfully with adolescent and adult learners, as well as second language learners and students with learning disabilities such as dyslexia. Phonics Pathways is ideal for school, tutoring, and home use and includes wise, humorous proverbs that encourage virtues such as patience, perseverance, honesty, compassion, courage, and loyalty.
