How We Use Phonics Pathways to Teach Reading and Spelling

A Little Background

Last year we began using Phonics Pathwaysby Dolores G. Hiskes to teach Peanut how to read since Cathy Duffy’s review spoke so highly of the program, especially for someone wanting a complete phonics program on a budget.  However, it quickly became apparent that Phonics Pathways was NOT a good fit for her at the time.  Thus, when I found How to Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons by Siegfried Engelman at a used bookstore for only $2.25, I decided, “What do I have to lose?”

We came home and tried out Engelman’s book for a week to see if Peanut liked it any better than Phonics Pathways and the results were amazing.  She loved it!  Each day had a short story to read that she couldn’t wait to get too.   In addition, the visual cues helped her to progress quickly until finally she didn’t need them anymore as she was reading confidently on a first grade level.

At this point you may be thinking, “Why is she talking about How to Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons?  I thought this article was supposed to be about how to teach reading using Phonics Pathways?”  Don’t worry–it’s coming.  “There’s more to the story than meets the eye,” as the saying goes.

Once completing How to Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessonswe took a break from using a textbook and just read fun books together all summer such that by summer’s end we were wondering “what next?”  I knew Peanut had a great basic phonics understanding, but I also knew there were several phonics skills that she didn’t totally gather from How to Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons.  As a result, I decided to once again try Phonics Pathways.  This time it worked.

Our Phonics Pathways Plan

Since we went through How to Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons first,we started Phonics Pathwayson page 48.  This review and game gave her enough confidence to know she could tackle this book this time, and let me know she was ready to proceed forward.  Since then, each day we have been reading 1/2 to 2 pages in Phonics Pathways, completing 5 spelling words from the day’s reading, and finishing with the reading of a fun picture book (which she thinks are WAY better than the typical student readers).

Below are the lesson plans we have been following.  Currently we are are day 43 and still going strong.  Our plan is to finish these lessons by the end of the school year, pending we continue our current pace of one lesson per school day.

About the Lesson Plans

There are 180 lesson plans in all with the final lesson being on a solid 4th grade reading level.  You may find as you progress that your child could easily complete or even skip days, while at other times they may need to spend more than one day to complete a day’s lesson.  Either way works.  Remember, THIS IS JUST A GUIDE.  As Dolores G. Hiskes says, “Your students should move ahead when they are completely ready–never according to ‘age or page.’  They might complete several pages in one day, or need many days to complete one page.”  It’s whatever works.

How to Use Phonics Pathways to Teach #Reading and #Spelling--Includes 180 days of FREE Lesson Plans!Each day I have assigned 1/2 to 2 pages of reading in Phonics Pathways followed by 5 spelling words from the day’s reading and a “student reader” (aka library picture book) in which to practice one’s reading skills.  Always, always, the student reader should be at an easier reading level than the child is currently attempting in Phonics Pathways.  This helps to build the child’s confidence and reading enjoyment.  Each student reader was chosen comes from this 5-star list of books.  If you cannot easily access a book suggested,  feel free to choose another book at the same reading level  in which the original book is found.  For instance, Chrysanthemum by Henkes is a level 1.0 book.  However, if my library did not have it, I might try Ten Black Dots by Crews instead.  Both are at the same reading level and Ten Black Dots will not be used later on in the lesson plans.

Every so often, we have a “Switchero Spelling Day” where Peanut gets to choose 5 spelling words from the day’s reading and check to see if MOM spelled the words right.  This provides a little extra fun for her, and she is still learning to spell just the same.

Phonics Pathways awards are also listed in the lesson plans so that you know when to download and give your child an award for her reading  accomplishments.  You can download the awards on the Dorbooks website.  Note: the award schedule on these lesson plans do not quite fit the schedule given by Dorbooks because the edition is slightly different than the original (meaning the pages are not quite the same) and because we began at a different point in the book.  You are always more than welcome to give out the awards whenever you like.  These just provide a guide should you like to offer the awards following the concepts suggested in Phonics Pathways.

Finally, these lesson plans were created by me for my daughters.  They are not in any way associated with the Phonics Pathways program and have not been tested by multiple families.  These plans are just what has worked for us and we hope they are a positive help as you venture out on your own Phonics Pathway.  These lesson plans are based on the 10th edition of  Phonics Pathways.  If you have another edition, you will need adjust your lesson plans just slightly to fit the edition your page numbers.

 What You Will Need:

  • Phonics Pathwaysby Dolores G. Hiskes
  • A handheld dry erase board and marker, preferably one with lines such as this one
  • Your local library

That’s it!  The total investment in the program is about $25 or less depending on if you get a dry erase board from your local Dollar Tree and the book via a used book sale.  Thus, it is a VERY economic program (not to mention complete).  Just remember, not every phonics program fits every student.  Just like Phonics Pathways did not work for Peanut initially, it may not work for your child initially or at all.  However, if it does, I hope these lesson plans save you time and money as you put what Dolores G. Hiskes has to share into practice.

Subtitled “Clear Steps to Easy Reading and Perfect Spelling,” this volume lives up to its name. Using a Basic Phonics approach (aka “pure” phonics), no sight words are introduced until basic decoding and reading skills are well-established. Even then, such words are introduced in clusters according to sound and spelling pattern so that they may be more easily learned. If you are familiar with other phonics programs, this one strikes me as a cross between Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons and Alpha-Phonics. It is well organized, systematic, incremental, and thorough in its presentation. Instructions are clear and lessons require no preparation time. After reading through the brief introduction, you can sit right down with the book and your child, spending 10-15 minutes a day on the lessons. If you feel overwhelmed or ill-equipped to teach your child to read, you should be able to succeed with this program because the author has already done the “legwork” for you. She provides it all - how to present and explain each phonogram, spelling rules that apply, reviews, exercises and helpful tips. Additionally, the author includes exercises for vision/motor coordination exercises (which are apparently identical to ones prescribed by ophthalmologists for problems with eye strength or tracking). Testimonials abound, with success stories in regular classrooms, from home schoolers, with learning disabled children, and with older and remedial students. The approach is multi-sensory, so it will be just as usable with a visual learner as an auditory or kinesthetic one. Going beyond teaching phonograms, the book covers contractions, plural forms, homonyms and homophones, homographs, prefixes, suffixes, and compound words. An additional helpful feature is the attention given to syllabication. The author’s approach here makes it possible for the young reader to confidently tackle even the longest words. As she so aptly states, “How children learn may be different - but what they learn should be the same. Everyone should be able to decode even the longest unfamiliar words, syllable by syllable.” Indeed, the book progresses from “a” to “A strong foundation to a house is indispensable” with sure mastery of skills in between. Typeface for the student to read is large (24 pt) so as not to strain the eyes and both printed and written forms of “a” and “g” are taught. The program is self-contained with no supplemental readers or materials required (though you will probably want to supply your student with additional reading material at his skill level). Welcome additions to the 10th edition include: pictures illustrating every sound introduced, lessons in dividing multi-syllable words, and nonsense word reviews to ensure learning. The paperback format also features easy-to-copy, lay-flat pages. The appropriate integration of spelling rules into the phonics lessons (reminiscent of An Acorn in My Hand) make this an excellent spelling reference also. Little proverbs of encouragement, both for teacher and student, are sprinkled generously throughout. One oddity of the book is that it seems to be written from a third person point of view - speaking to the student but, at times, addressing both you and the student as though the author was there speaking to both of you (kind of like a phonics facilitator). This threw me in the first bank of instructions, but, after that, its references to the teacher as a separate entity disappear, and the text can be used as your verbal instruction to your child. The completeness, ease of use, and relatively low cost of this program should make it valuable to homeschoolers as their basal phonics curriculum.

Phonics Pathways, tenth edition

Phonics Pathways is a complete phonics program, self-contained within one large book so you do not need a separate teacher’s manual.

The program will work for all ages as well as for remedial readers. Sounds of the letters are taught, beginning with short vowels. As each consonant is taught, it is immediately used to begin making blends with the short vowels. Beginning blends are taught “consonant-vowel” (i.e., "ba, bi, bo," etc.). Because of the quick movement into blending practice, children are soon reading three-letter words.

One problem that crops up in this and other programs that begin with consonant-vowel combinations is that children guess at vowel sounds since actual vowel sounds are generally determined by what comes after the vowel—and in the early stages of the program, there’s nothing “coming after” to give them a clue. When children start reading long vowel words they need to be taught to scan ahead for signals such as silent-e that determine the vowel sound. Phonics Pathways has tried to address this problem in their newest editions by adding diacritical markings to vowels when children might run into problems determining the vowel sound.

Multi-sensory learning methods (hearing, saying, tracing, writing) are used with each letter. Upper and lower case letters are shown from the beginning, although children work primarily with lower case letters. You might need to take some extra time to work specifically on recognition and writing of upper case letters, although this could be done late in the program.

Each new concept taught is followed by words, phrases, or sentences for practice, so no extra reading material is necessary. Reading practice is designed to improve tracking skills from left to right. Some of the phrases and sentences are purposely nonsensical or humorous to keep it entertaining. The “Dewey the Bookworm” character and positive-thinking type proverbs are also used throughout the book for the same reason.

The program covers all phonetic sounds, diacritical markings, suffixes and prefixes, plurals and possessives, contractions, and compound words. Teaching instruction is on each page, and it is brief enough that no significant preparation time is needed.

One oddity worth noting pops up frequently in the instructions. Sometimes they are written directly to students even though students of this program cannot yet read sentences this complex. But this is no big deal. Parents or teachers just need to read through the instructions and present whatever is necessary to students.

An index to spelling rules, spelling and pronunciation charts, plural and suffix spelling charts, and two pages of “Vision and Motor Coordination Training Exercises” are at the back of the book. Try some of these exercises if you have a child who seems to have minor learning disabilities.

Phonics Pathways introduces “pyramids” as another reading strategy within its lessons. Reading exercises expand in pyramid fashion from a single word to complex sentences. Within each pyramid, the single word is repeated in each subsequent line, but each time one or more additional words are added to create and then expand a sentence.

Phonics Pathways is among my Top Picks because it does a great job of teaching phonics, it is very reasonably priced for such a comprehensive program, it is easy for parents to use, and it has options that can make it more multi-sensory.
