Race to Read: A Step-by-Step Guidebook for Parents

For Homeschool Parents

Homeschool parents use this book to teach their children to read

Homeschool parents love this guidebook! Each step for teaching your child to read is clearly stated in a sequence that is easy to follow.

The placement guide helps you determine exactly where to start each child in the book. You will want to purchase one book for each child not yet reading at the 3rd grade level.

Charts, activities, and leveled book lists provide just enough practice to teach each skill to mastery.

Learning to spell

Each book contains motivating certificates.

All of the sight words are shown on easy to teach word charts.

You will have access to the Race to Read Video Library where you can watch demonstration lessons for each of the skills outlined in the book.
