And with Progressive Phonics, ANYONE can teach a child to read and write in just a few minutes a day, which makes it ideal for parents, teachers, tutors, volunteers and home-schoolers.
No experience necessary. Just pick a book and start reading it with your child/students.
Matching handwriting worksheets and activity sheets for each book -- when children write what they learn, they learn it better.
Also teaches the essential sight-words (phonics rule-breakers) that most phonics programs fail to teach.
Instant access -- download and use today. (Free registration required, but there are sample books you can look at before registering.)
Our books can be read on-screen or printed on your color printer. Each book takes 4--8 minutes to print and uses as little ink and paper as possible.
But don't judge a book by it's home page. Read one of our books with a child and see for yourself.
I have just signed up to start using this program... and so far I am loving it!!!!

Change of Plans - Movie
8:10:00 AM AnnMarie Brown 1 Comments
I love family movies. Ones that warm my heart.
Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG) and Walmart (NYSE: WMT) will premiere their latest made-for-TV family movie, "Change of Plans," starring Brooke White, Joe Flanigan and Phylicia Rashad on Saturday, January 8, 2011 at 8/7c on FOX.
"Change of Plans" demonstrates how our lives can be turned upside down with a single phone call. When Sally Danville (Brooke White, "American Idol") finds out that her best friend from college died in a tragic accident while serving in the Peace Corps, Sally also learns that she has been named the legal guardian of her friend's four children - three of whom were adopted from third-world countries. Now Sally and her husband, Jason (Joe Flanigan, "Stargate: Atlantis"), must quickly learn to parent this instant family and help the kids deal with culture clashes and life in America. The story is both humorous and heartwarming, revealing how fulfilling life can be when you look beyond your own plans and invest in the lives of others.
