PHONICS PATHWAYS BOOSTERS BY DOLORES HISKES is a new collection of special, carefully-selected
teaching tools and games printed on cardstock and ready to use. Additionally,
the sound being learned is accented with another color, easing and focusing
learning. Phonics Pathways Boosters includes:
• The Train Game
64 individual “train car” cards develop and strengthen left-to-right blending
skills, preventing or correcting letter/word reversals. Developing smooth blending
skills is critical to ensure reading fluency. Letters and sounds are printed on both
sides of every card, one letter or sound per card. Pictures on one side graphically
illustrate every sound being introduced, ensuring correct pronunciation. Learn
with the picture side, flip to the letter-only side when ready! This powerful teaching
tool is especially effective with beginners, ELL, or dyslexic students.
• Speaking Pathways CD
The sounds and spelling patterns of English as presented in Phonics Pathways are
clearly presented in this lively 35-minute CD, narrated by author Dolores Hiskes.
Part One is “Letters and Sounds,” and Part Two is “Spelling Rules and Patterns.” A script can be downloaded free from www.dorbooks.com. Reading and listening
to these letters and sounds at the same time greatly accelerates learning! This
beautifully-enunciated CD adds a whole new dimension to learning how to read,
and is especially effective wtih English-language learners.
Two board games teach beginning reading skills by developing and strengthening
eye tracking, and include (1) Two-Letter Blends and (2) Short-Vowel Words.
It is similar to Bingo: cards are drawn, read, and placed over matching squares
on boards. Whoever fills in a line first is the winner. It’s a fun-filled activity for the
whole family: beginners have just as much chance of winning as do Mom and
Dad. Everyone loves this timeless old classic -- just watch their eyes light up!
Three sets of cards review and reinforce reading skills at gradually increasing skill
levels: (1) Short-Vowel Phrases, (2) Long-Vowel Phrases, and (3) Complex Multisyllable
words. Each set can be played using a variety of games -- Bag the Bugs
is especially popular (outrageous!). There are 18 double sets of cards (or 36 cards
in all) for each game. Excellent practice in an extraordinary, fun-filled format.
• Sound-Spelling Flash Cards (New!)
These illustrated flash cards are unique in being organized by sounds, not spellings.
All possible spelling variations of every sound are shown using sample
words, with the spelling highlighted in a different color. Learn with the picture side,
flip to the letter-only side when ready. Accelerates learning for everyone, especially
English-language learners, beginners, and students with learning disabilities.
