Why is it here!
The author of this resource has spent $1000's on educational resource materials. Many of these now sit idle in boxes in the shed gathering dust, mildew and mice droppings. Whether the mice are learning anything is doubtful but they certainly enjoy using the books as a mice-nursery and exposing their little ones to all this educated material. There is no end to the writing of books and no end to how many resources you can buy. This resource will save you lots of money in comparison to other ABC curriculums, especially if you have several young students to teach.

Our high standard
This Deluxe ABC's kit is different than the usual syllabus. Cursive letter writing is introduced immediately which is in stark contrast to the basic 'printed' letters. If you feel up to the challenge and you believe your student is capable of attaining the high standard set out in the Deluxe ABC's then go for it. With your patience, perseverance and your daily enthusiastic input, your young student will achieve the goals you set out for him or her. If you feel that the cursive letters are to difficult or inappropriate for your student print the 'alternative letter' instead.

Who is it for?
The deluxe ABC's kit was written for 4½ - 6½ year old children. It can be used as a stand-alone teaching tool in schools or for those who wish to teach their child to read and write at home. It is also ideal as a supplementary resource for students who are not coping well in the education system or for those who would like more advanced tutoring materials.

How long will it take?
It is not how fast you complete the lessons, it is how well you have taught your student the letter sounds and letter formation. It is important to show your student how each letter is formed when he or she starts writing them. Letter formations are shown in this tutorial with the aid of a chart. The duration of this course completely depends upon each individual. As a rough guide, your student should have mastered all letters, letter sounds, numbers 1 - 10 and basic words within 6 months. Don't worry though if they take longer, it is better to take longer and achieve excellent results than to rush through the course and cause serious learning problems later on. These problems have cropped up over and over again in the main stream education, where literacy and numeracy skills are often rushed and below standard results are the outcome. This problem is usually due because there are to many other unnecessary extra curricular activities added.

35 letter sounds
The 35 letter sounds and numbers are in order of how they should be taught. Follow this sequence for best results. However ... if you know of a different sequence, you feel is much better, then you can easily adapt the lessons to suit your teaching style, that is the beauty of this resource. It is fully adaptable and can be integrated in any other existing curriculum. Four main teaching methods are described on the following page for further information >>> Reading Methods

Handy tip - letter cards
It is recommended to use each coloured letter as indicated from each lesson plan and laminate these. They will last longer and can be hung on the wall or handled by your students. These colourful letter cards can also be incorporated with games and activities. Laminating them will ensure that they last for the duration needed.

Be organized
If you have the time, patience and organizational skills, file your purchased ABC material properly, it is recommended to print your lesson plan and associated worksheets. Laminate the colourful letters beforehand, file your lesson plans and worksheets in a plastic sleeve binder. By being organized you will save time and money. It is not wise to let your student wait while you're photocopying or printing, it is not only your student/s who will loose interest and enthusiasm quickly... you will too.

There are many worksheets for each lesson. If you find that the 'cursive' letters are inappropriate for your student simply print the 'alternative' letter instead. It is not essential to complete every worksheet but recommended. It may take two days to complete all worksheets per lesson, depending on the student.

The method in this course has been fully tested on home tutored children. Some of these children now attend University or other tertiary colleges and are excelling because of a good initial grounding. You need dedication, perseverance and plenty of patience. Don't drop your bundle if you have begun home tutoring and hit a few rough spots on the way. Be thankful for the rough spots, it shows your child's weaknesses and you can concentrate on improving these. Teaching your child to read and write is one of the most rewarding missions in your life! Be organized and take one day at a time, don't let others interfere with your goals. Well meaning people can do a lot of damage to your confidence. If you know such people it may be better to avoid them as they can hinder you and your child from achieving a very important milestone in both your lives. Hang on to those people who encourage you in your efforts and you could even ask them to help occasionally. Check out the Reading Methods and Guide for Parents.

Art and Games
Some games and activities are suggested but there are many more ideas available. If you are not very creative yourself, try your local library for some activity books. Start collecting toilet rolls, al-foil, old tubs, tins, boxes etc. for art activities. Buy child safe glue, paints and drawing materials. Outdoor games are healthy and will stir your child's imagination. Look at trees, flowers, insects, rocks, birds, the sky, grow plants or vegetables, check out ponds, streams or rivers. Always closely supervise all your activities, accidents can happen quickly so keep a watch out!
