Excellent source for free phonics books and general reading instruction research/articles.


One of the books that I have found helpful from the site is "Remedial Reading Drills."

Even though it is geared towards remedial students, I have found it to be an excellent resource for beginning phonics students as well. The book is mainly a book of lists of words for different phonograms. If you are putting together your own phonics program, it is a big help as you can use the word lists from here and don't have to sit down and generate your own lists, as I have done so many times.  The book is sequential in that as new phonograms are introduced, the current word list  is only comprised of the one new sound and sounds that the student has already been introduced to.

If you are new to teaching phonics and perhaps don't know where to begin,
