Full-year Canadian literacy curriculum for homeschooling in grade 1 (or similar levels) is now complete! Strengthen a young child’s reading skills and expand these to introduce spelling and some reading comprehension skills too!
It was a busy week again personally but here we are and I’ll quickly try to get this announcement on the blog. (I hear thunder in the distance as I’m typing.)
Please look at the product description AT THIS LINK for more information and to see more SAMPLE pages.
I have also put together a FREE SAMPLER batch of pages from this new printable e-book so you can see the flavour and show it to your kids! 🙂 Click here for those pages: Let Me Read Step 3 SAMPLER

To purchase combinations of Step 1, Step 2, and Step 3 at a discounted price compared to buying these separately, please click on this link for the combos.
This has been a project that I’ve wanted to update and expand for years now. We used to have a Let Me Read: Beginner Reading Program (we printed only a small number of copies and yes, that was sold out about 5 years ago – but we heard great comments from moms using it). It included the basic parts/skills of Step 1, 2, and 3. Now all those Steps have been put into a second edition but given more direction, many more pages, more extras to make it even easier to teach with and have fun with!
My mom (Grace) gave a lot of direction years ago with the “how to teach” ideas and, as I’ve learned from her and the notes I read of hers these days, I have to say a HUGE “thanks” to my mom for all the help with this project! Mom (and Dad too) lived with us from 2015-2019 and then moved to a seniors’ residence for care. A major part of her life was to develop literacy lessons (often by hand) for the hundreds of boys and girls she loved to teach – in the old-fashioned rural schoolhouses, the town grade 1 classroom, the various schools she supply taught at, the families she helped in tutoring, teachers she guided as they were training, and her own family – the 2 daughters she homeschooled for “kindergarten” (essentially teaching them grade 1 reading) and the many grandchildren she also “played school” with during visits (to teach reading, etc.). She has never lost her love for vintage readers and children’s storybooks, her collection of poetry clippings, seeing the drawings of simple pictures and patterns she would use as visual aids to explain something, and has always had a deep love to be with children. It has been said that she hasn’t still fully grown up and still loves to have fun! (I hope I’m the same way! 🙂 ) When I chatted with Dad and her over the computer yesterday, she gave a smile when she heard that I was almost ready to publish the grade 1 reading book! So I publicly say, “THANKS, MOM, for all that you’ve done with teaching me not only to read as a child, but also to teach reading to others! Love ya lots!” 🙂 ♥
