Foundational Phonics Reviews
"Foundational Phonics is the best how to teach/how to learn reading curriculum I've seen. It's clear, logical, and comprehensive with fun thrown in (just wait 'til you get to the "sl" poem!). It is delightful and effective. It can also be used for those students having trouble starting to read after using other systems."
- Cyndee DeWeese, former public school teacher, home schooling mom, and grandma
“Ariel Gunther has captured timeless pre-reading readiness skills within the pages of her books. Drawing upon vintage graphics, Book One equips the pre-reader to begin their journey into reading using phonics and letter recognition. Book Two piggypacks on the look and feel of Book One adding word groups, spelling, writing games and activities to hone higher phonics and solidify reading achievement. This collection is a refreshing and welcome tool to entice young readers towards literacy.”

"Foundational Phonics is the best phonics curriculum I have ever seen.
As a homeschool mom of seven children with completely different personalities and learning styles, I made myself familiar with most of the early reading curriculums out there, as I have always felt that the most important key to education is the ability to
read well. Literacy in this day and age is sorely lacking and the plethora of “new methods” has made teaching children to read a complex process that can seem overwhelming to many parents and teachers. Foundational Phonics is different from most of what is available out there. Geared toward home education, but suitable for the classroom as well as tutoring, Foundational Phonics makes the transition from speaking to reading as natural as the transition from crawling to walking. Incorporating time tested teaching methods from an age of literacy and learning, and reinforcing a logical progression of learning language through ear, tongue and eye training,
Ariel Gunther has crafted a curriculum that encourages young minds to soar."

Ariel Gunther's Foundational Phonics Letter Mastery (Book One) and Word Mastery
(Book Two) are beautifully crafted and carefully designed to develop a solid foundation
in phonics. I have seen nothing that quite compares to this. I definitely plan to use this program for my grand children's education. This curriculum is exactly what we need!
