Courses Overview

Reading Course Number One

PRE-K UP TO GRADE 1

Reading Course One is the introduction to all things reading.

The course starts with fun activities which gives a student an understanding of what letters are and how to differentiate and recognize them in their daily life.

They will suddenly start seeing the world in a different light and instead of letters and words being strange shapes and lines, they will see letters all around them.

They learn what each letter of the alphabet is, how to form each letter and what sound each letter makes. This forms the foundation of the English studies!

In this course they will learn what vowels are and what the most usual or common sound is for each vowel and vowel sounds. They go on to finding out how each letter can form into a word and how to do this, in fact you will find out what a word actually is.

There are various activities on this course, beginning with a kitchen activity of making play dough with your student, then making a whole alphabet chart and playing a lot with the play dough and making letters and objects out of play dough. Its fun for both you and your child and it often results in a lot of laughter and happiness. You’ll also teach them what a Capital Letter is and when to use one and what a full stop is and when to use one.

There are 8 Readers, a Make-it-Yourself Play Dough Kit and Letter tiles that go along with Reading Course Number One and your student will be able to utilize each one of them with absolute certainty by the end of the course.

Your student will learn how to read and spell approximately 200 words on this course. This equates to a reading level of an advanced Grade 1 student.

This course done 1 hour sessions can take 6 months to a year depending on their age and aptitude.

Result: A student who is confident and enjoys learning to read.

Reading Course Number Two

GRADE 2 READING LEVEL

On Reading Course Number Two your student will graduate to learn new sounds for some of the vowels, such as a new sound for the letter “e” and the letter “o”.

They will discover that the letters “a” and “I” can also be words and how to use these as words.

Next we move on to learning that various letters, when they are next to each other can form entirely different sounds such as “th”. They will come to understand six uniquely different combinations of letters, such as “sh” and “ch”.

On this course your child will also learn the use of “ing” at the end of words, when it’s used and how that relates to the different uses of words in sentences.

After advancing on this level your child will read 10 new Readers on this course and will have no trouble reading each one of these books because they have learned the sounds or the letter combination sounds before they read the book.

There are over 150 new words that your child will learn to read and spell on this course. In combination with Course One they will have a mastery of 350 words. This is three times the expected level of a Grade 1 reading level and well into Grade 2 level of reading.

Reading Course Number Three

GRADE 3 READING LEVEL

On Reading Course Number Three your child will learn 18 more letter combinations that make certain sounds, such as “er”, “ea” and “ed”.

They learn what the letter “y” does and how it sounds when at the end of a word. Your child learns how the letter “e” when placed at the end of a word can change the sound of the vowel within the word.

At this point in the Lynley’s Reading School courses they now know enough words and language rules to be able to read most words they come across in their daily lives, sound them out and use them in their own vocabulary.

There are 8 Readers that go along with this course and your child will have no trouble reading each one of these books because they have learned the sounds or the letter combination sounds before they read the book.

There are an additional 250 words that your child will learn how to read and spell on Reading Course Number Three. This totals well over 600 words and takes them up to a Grade 3 reading level.

Reading Course Number Four

GRADE 4/5 READING LEVEL

On Reading Course Number Four your child will learn 21 more letter combinations that make certain sounds, such as “aw”, “ue” and three different sounds for “oo”.

Your child will learn with absolute certainty words which sometimes cause difficulty for students. Words such as “were” and “there” and “does”.

They learn what a quotation mark, a question mark and an exclamation mark are and how and when to use these. By this point in the Lynley’s Reading Course they will have a better understanding of core grammar principles than many adults! They will have a lot of certainty and know what they are reading and how it all fits together.

There are 12 Readers that go along with this course and your child will have no trouble reading each one of these books because they have learned the sounds or the letter combination sounds before they read the book.

There are over 250 words that your child will learn how to read and spell on Reading Course Number 4. This gives the student a Grade 4 reading level with a reading vocabulary of over 850 words!

Reading Course Number Five

GRADE 5/6 READING LEVEL

On Reading Course Number Five your child will learn 18 more letter combinations that make certain sounds, such as “ui”, “ce” and “wh”.

On this course there are certain words they will learn to differentiate between. An example of some of these are “whether and weather”, also “piece and “peace”. There are certain silent letters they will learn on this course such as silent “w” in words such as “wrist” and “write”.

Your student will have a mastery of different rules when using “i, n and g”. For example “hop – hopping” and “bend – bending”.

This is where they will now have confidence in how to read and spell each day of the week and each month of the year and many other common everyday words which they will need in their lives.

In this course the student graduates from the readers into finding their own reading materials. They select books of their own choice and interests and the course then covers the more complex concepts of words and word combinations as well as getting a strong grasp of comprehension and understanding what they are reading.

There are over 200 words that your child will learn how to read and spell on Reading Course Number 5. This course is the bridge between an early learner and an advanced reader. On this course they will end up with a reading vocabulary of a Grade 5-6 student and are preparing for the more advanced reading activities needed for their “high school” learning. By the end of this course they will be well in advance of most other students of their own age or grade level.
