Hands-on activities are important for early learners -- not to mention fun! Foundations Phonics includes suggested hands-on activities for each lesson. But don't worry! Activities were chosen with mom in mind and the vast majority utilize materials you likely already have on hand. This makes planning and learning a breeze!
Foundations Phonics is designed to fit into a busy life and schedule because as moms, we all juggle a lot! Lessons last about 10-20 minutes, three times a week. A suggested schedule makes it easy to plan and track your child's progress.

- flour or sugar
- washi or painter's tape
Foundations Phonics guides your child on an adventure from Creation to the Resurrection of Christ as they learn to read, creating a firm Biblical foundation. By the end of the program, your child will have traced God's plan of Salvation throughout history while they've learned how to read. More importantly, they will understand what Salvation means for them individually.
Hey there! I'm so excited for you as you start this journey of teaching your child to read -- it's such a special time in your child's life!
I fondly remember sitting with my mom on the couch as she taught me to read. Even over 20 years later we still chat about the memories we made! And now as I've taught my own children to read I've loved watching their eyes and face light up as connections are made and a whole new world opens to them.
I wrote Foundations Phonics because I wanted to empower you to make those memories and share this experience with your child too.
As moms, we teach out kids everything from walking, to talking, eating, letters, manners, and numbers. But then when they hit the learning to read stage we often feel intimidated and un-qualified. But friend, that's not the truth! You have been, and still are, your child's best teacher. You can totally teach your child how to read!
You're going to have so much fun teaching your child how to read, and I can't wait to hear about the memories you make together.
