"Plaid" Phonics: Grade 4 Phonics Program

Savvas Offers the Best Homeschool Reading Curriculum

“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


Teaching your child to read and spell can be a difficult and rewarding journey. Of course, using a well-crafted curriculum for homeschooling will make the experience more fun and engaging for the both of you. “Plaid” Phonics was designed to do just that. Originally known as Modern Curriculum Press (MCP) "Plaid" Phonics and now published by Savvas, our comprehensive K-6 program will help you teach your child the building blocks of language and literacy. The curriculum has been setting the standard of Phonics for more than 50 years, helping over 55 million children learn to read. With numerous hands-on activities, this program will help develop your child's understanding of Phonics, which is the basis of reading and spelling.


“Plaid” Phonics: Grade 4 is the fifth installment in the series and is geared toward intermediate students. Every activity included in the curriculum will help your child grasp the concepts you teach him or her. By the time your child completes Grade 4, he or she should be able to:

  • Use context clues to define words
  • Read and understand multisyllabic words
  • Use phonics skills while reading and writing


The activities provided in “Plaid” Phonics are engaging and help your child develop his or her ability to build and recognize words and spell with proficiency. Additionally, all “Plaid” Phonics Grades incorporate critical-thinking and reading-comprehension exercises.


“Plaid” Phonics works in conjunction with MCP Spelling Workout. Together, the two homeschool programs can give your child a well-rounded understanding of word construction.
