Book Title: Beyond Blend Phonics
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
Author: Donald L. Potter
Beyond Blend Phonics is designed as a followup to any good phonics program such as Mr. Potter's Blend Phonics Lessons and Stories. Beyond Blend Phonics teaches the three main Levels of Advanced English Morphology (word prefixes, suffixes, and roots) based on the language of origin. Words of Anglo-Saxon, Latin, French, and Greek origin are taught. Mr. Potter used a unique dual sentence approach to teaching word meanings that he learned from Dr. George Gonzalez, when Mr. Potter was a bilingual teacher, teaching English words to Spanish speaking students. The procedures pairs a new word in one sentence with a simple word the students know in another sentence. The approach is natural and easy. Even younger children can significantly boost their vocabulary and reading levels with this pleasant method of learning.
