Beginning Steps to Reading (BSR) provides a systematic, phonetic approach to teaching children to read. The sounds are introduced beginning with short vowels and then consonants from more common to less common. Long vowels come last. By the end of 90 school days (the first half of the year), reading begins. BSR takes a student to this point. After BSR, any course can carry the child into reading skills.

Pupil Workbooks
These workbooks provide 4 detachable pages of exercises per lesson. Each lesson is divided into three basic parts: auditory discrimination, visual discrimination, and comprehension. The final page may be review, a picture to color, or extra practice in a basic skill. There are 3 workbooks of 30 lessons each.

Teacher's Editions
Each workbook has an accompanying teacher's edition which contains directions for the lessons as well as copies of the student pages with answers filled in. These teacher pages are unbound and hole-punched, designed to be placed in a 3-ring binder (not included). Teacher's Edition A also includes a valuable introduction to the course, explaining how all the basic components and teaching aids are to be used together.

Worksheets
These loose-leaf pages provide exercises to reinforce the three basic skills taught in the workbooks, and to develop motor skills. Pasting, cutting, and coloring are employed. After the lesson for the day has been taught, pupils should be able to do the worksheet exercise with very little teacher help.

Word Practice
This book contains words arranged according to sounds, listed in the same order as the sounds are introduced in the lessons. Each page emphasizes a specific sound and should be used after the lesson which introduces that sound. Use the book daily to reinforce the lesson and to cause the pupil to put to practice what has been taught. Use it as a reference book to review when necessary.

Reader
This hardcover book gives the pupil practice in reading sound words in sentence form, to be used after several weeks of phonics instruction. It is made up of 50 sentence-practice sets. In these sets, 318 sound words are introduced and nine sight words. The reader is intended to help the pupil form the habit of attacking words phonetically. Sight words are kept at a minimum so that the pupil is required to use his knowledge of phonetics in actual reading. The 318 sound words are made up of sounds which the pupil has studied in earlier lessons.

Practice Sheets
Approximately four or five practice sheets accompany each lesson. These sheets provide extra practice in the skills that are taught in the daily lessons. They may be used on the same day that the lesson is taught, or at a later date for review. Included are sheets that provided practice in writing the letters for the sounds taught. The Index and Directions for these sheets is bound in a separate booklet.
