Little Stories for Little Folks: Catholic Phonics Readers
Nancy Nicholson

Fifth edition — now in full color!

Little Stories for Little Folks is a complete, Catholic, phonics-based reading program. Beginning with colorful, stiff cardstock flash cards and active games for alphabet letter and sound recognition, the program progresses to pre-reading exercises which teach the student to blend sounds into words. The child then begins reading the forty-five, colorfully illustrated stories about other homeschool families! Each story is printed on 8½"x11" sheets to be folded into little booklets, which give the child the satisfaction of finishing a "whole book."  Booklets are illustrated mini-stories containing words from new phonics concepts, as well as words learned in previous lessons, to provide maximum word exposure (nearly 7,000 words!). 
 
Every lesson is immediately preceded by a parent instruction page which shows in simple steps how to present the reading exercises, worksheets, active games, and stories. All of these are organized and contained under one cover, making presentation of lessons super-simple.
 
Thousands of children not only have learned to read but are usually reading well above grade level by the end of first grade, using Little Stories for Little Folks.
 
Pre-K to 1st grade; loose-leaf tablet, shrink-wrapped. 8½"x11"  Fifth Edition -- now in full color!
 
Only $32.95 for complete, two-year program!

 

 

 

From the author: "Teaching word families is probably the most gratifying way for a child to quickly discover that there are patterns to words and that they can read a LOT of words even when they are just beginning. Nothing breeds success like success! Drill, with the exception of flashcards in the pre-reading stage, can seem so pointless and dry to the child that it is almost self-defeating. They want to READ! The best way to practice sounds is within words within sentences within interesting, short stories!"

See also Little Stories for Little Folks’ companion workbooks: Catholic Heritage Handwriting, Level K and Level 1. These workbooks provide story-by-story phonics practice as primary students copy and reinforce letter combinations and words that they have just read in Little Stories for Little Folks. Children master reading skills even more rapidly when using these companion workbooks.

Higher level reading practice is presented through engaging, character-building stories in What Do You Like to Do..., What Can You Do...Bigger Stories for Little Folks, Devotional Stories for Little Folks, and Devotional Stories for Little Folks, Too.

Little Stories allows much greater opportunity for growth and application of phonetic principles while reinforcing Catholic values and life-styles. In addition to greater scope, the sequence is very appropriate with one concept building upon the previous concepts and constant re-exposure to new blends, digraphs, etc. I realize now that my older children could have benefited greatly from a more comprehensive presentation of high frequency sounds, blends and digraphs ... Both children, at different paces have really achieved using this program. What's more, they love it! ... My 5-year-olds are reading like you wouldn't believe and God is given glory throughout the series.”

Little Stories is just wonderful! We took it slow at first, but then my child began to breeze through the stories. I saw it in the CHC catalog and bought it even though my oldest was only two at the time. I've been waiting a long time to have the story, "We Hope to See the Pope" read to me. My child read the stories to whomever would listen. He would tell the story lines to his dad and talk about the characters as if they were his friends. The characters are true-to-life. They sometimes are naughty or get into trouble. But the Catholic Faith aspect is important to my child. This is a lovely program!”
