Blumenfeld's Alpha-Phonics was created to provide parents, teachers, and tutors with a sensible, logical, easy-to-use system for teaching reading. It is an intensive phonics instruction program based on the author's many years of research and experience in the reading instruction field. It answers the need for a practical instruction program that anyone who wants to teach reading can learn to use with no special training.
The Workbook teaches our alphabetic system - with its 26 letters and 44 sounds - in the following sequence: First, the alphabet, then the short vowels and consonants, the consonant digraphs, followed by the consonant blends, and finally the long vowels in their variety of spellings and our other vowels.
The Alpha-Phonics Readers accompany the text of Sam Blumenfeld’s Alpha-Phonics, providing opportunities for students to read at a level that matches their progress through the text. These eleven readers move from simple sentences to paragraphs to stories, ending with poetry. By the time a student completes this simple program, the phonetic reflex is well-established. This program has also been successfully used with functionally illiterate adults.

Chalcedon operates on a modest budget made possible when our supporters make online donations or use the return envelope we enclose in each publication. As donations may fluctuate widely from month to month, long-term planning can be a challenge. That's where our Underwriters come in. With their monthly pledges, this "Gideon's Band of 300" underwrites our operating expenses, allowing us to plan future ministerial efforts responsibly. Please select the amount your wish to give based on the levels represented on the chart.
