Lesson 1 is Different
Lesson 1 is the introductory lesson for the program. It is organized differently than the other lessons. Lesson 1 has three main parts:
- A set of Idea pages that explain some basic phonics concepts used in the program.
- A set of Pattern pages that introduce the basic consonant sounds we need to start reading simple words.
- Two Sight Word pages introducing the words a and the. These are the only sight words used in the early lessons.
Lesson 1 is only meant to provide some basic background information for the other lessons. The main learning begins in Lesson 2.
When first starting students on the program we recommend you briefly review Lesson 1 then go right into Lesson 2.
