Rod and Staff Phonics
for Grades 1 and 2
Rod and Staff's Phonics program is an integral part of the first and second grade Bible Nurture and Reader Series. It can, however, be used independently very successfully. There is only one small problem. The teachers manuals for the first grade phonics are in the same books with the reading manuals. The manuals are not really that expensive, so that is not a serious problem. The teacher's manual for the second grade is a separate book.
Rod and Staff does not have a separate Phonics course after second grade. Many of the phonics concepts are kept alive in the spelling course, Spelling by Sound and Structure.
