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!
 
A complete, two-year program for one low price!

 

 

 

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.

“I wish I had time for a long, inspiring letter to tell you how much your materials, and the people behind them and in your small company, have meant to me and my family over the years. A short 'thank you' will have to do for now. A box of materials ordered from CHC is always a 'taste of heaven' when it arrives at our door. Every one of the items I've ever purchased from you has touched my heart and soul at some level (isn't curriculum for Moms who are trying to grow in their own Faith?), and the children's souls have been touched too.”
- Vonnie
“Like so many parents new to home schooling you wonder where the right place is to start your journey. Well, you need not look any further then the CHC Lesson plans. If you're new to homeschooling then you can follow the step-by-step daily layout provided as is. There is no need to spend tireless hours researching and planning your school year and you can take comfort in knowing that your child will receive a quality Catholic education. As a seasoned homeschool veteran, I find the Lessons Plans an invaluable resource. It is packed full of information, ideas, teaching tools, charts, certificates, and the list goes on. I would have taken precious time from my family trying to put a plan together with this amount of substantial information and activities. Even though I no longer follow the plans exactly as they are laid out (love the flexibility here), I simply wouldn't start the school year without my CHC Lesson Plans. ”
