4. Reading K-3
The sample lesson for the new "Reading K-3-How to Teach Reading,
Writing and Spelling" lessons is almost ready. I'm just waiting for
some final feedback from teachers who are testing it.

The response so far as been fantastic. I can't wait to find out
what you think of it. I hope you'll let me know what you think
after you see the sample lesson. The lessons use the synthetic
phonics method. If you didn't watch the video I made about
Synthetic Phonics, You can see it here:
