After using the Phonics V.1 DVD, I was given the chance to review the Phonics Volume 2 DVD. The Phonics 2 DVD builds on the skills taught in the first DVD such as long vowels, controlled vowels, diphthongs, the schwa sound, syllables, ending sounds, and more.
We have had this DVD for quite awhile now. When we first got it early in the year, Eph was still struggling with his phonics lessons, reading and letters. We tried the Phonics 2 DVD on several occasions and he just wasn’t interested, not because it isn’t a great tool but because he just wasn’t academically ready for it yet.
Eph is only reading at a 3-4 level and it is a struggle although I have seen great improvement within the last 4 weeks. Many of his books are starting the have a lot of the more advanced level phonics skills in them. I have no doubt that within the next few weeks this DVD is going to give him the same boost that the Phonics 1 DVD did. I just have to reintroduce it at the right time.
