The above are the first few pages of Book 1 Short A.  The student is taught the sound of a letter by looking at the picture. He then puts the sounds together to make words.

Each book comes with full instructions for the teacher or helper or parent or whoever is working with the student to teach him to read. (Please note that the use of “he” includes both sexes.)

Over thirty years of working with students has now resulted in this new edition of the Chain Reaction Learning Reading Series.  Very streamlined and carefully edited to ensure that students can fully understand everything they see and can happily progress from page to page with minimal instruction from their helper.

Please see our “Stories” page for some of the student’s experiences with this method.
