Playing with Letters

Phonics & Spelling

Memoria Press follows what our founder Cheryl Lowe calls “common sense” or “classical” phonics and spelling. There is no need to turn phonics into complex linguistic study, as some programs are wont to do. Memoria Press’ First Start Reading program teaches correct pencil grip, manuscript form, consonant and short vowel sounds, three-letter word formation, consonant blends and long vowels/silent e. Unusual words are introduced after students learn to blend three-letter words. Using this program, students learn to read in kindergarten using stories with a high percentage of phonetic words. This is the most effective and efficient way to teach reading.
