"Plaid" Phonics: Grade 6

“The variety of activities and colorful presentation make these workbooks appealing to children, and large print reduces the intimidation factor.” - Cathy Duffy, author of Top 100 Picks for Homeschooling Curriculum


Savvas “Plaid” Phonics helps children not only understand new words, but also how words are constructed.
