Top 10 Rules for the Beginning Reader

Most people think that the English language is not really governed by rules or that there are so many exceptions to the supposed “rules” that they aren’t worth learning. Some feel that the rules are so complex that nobody but a college linguistics professor can actually understand them. On the contrary, my friend.

Here are the Top 10 Rules you need to teach the beginning reader explained and demonstrated. I even show you how and when to teach them to your learning-to-reading friends! Yes, there are other rules. Yes, they are important. But if your reader knows just these first few rules, they will be able to decode the VAST MAJORITY of words.
