A New Selection of Old Books

From time to time, Oxton House acquires and offers for sale a few pre-owned books with educational value that may not be easily available elsewhere.  These are single copies, sold first-come, first-served.  See our Old Books page for descriptions and buying links.

The latest additions to our list are:

Why would you want one?  It depends.  Do you have Dr. Fischer’s Monosyllables word lists and her Worksheet Sets 1 and 2?  If so, the visual-memory and charting strategies in this Guide will give you a way to help students learn to spell words with vowel teams, and not mix them up with magic-e words — a way that can be used with groups, working semi-independently.

In addition to spelling work, this guide also contains the objectives and activities for teaching these decoding skills:  

-- adding suffixes to one-syllable words;

-- marker-e words (range, baste, else, solve, etc.);

-- vowel-team words;

-- two-syllable words (consonant-l-e and their suffix construction, vccv, and vcv).  

Please note: This “Objectives and Activities” Teacher’s Guide is not a stand-alone item, but anyone who has Dr. Fischer’s Fluency Set, or even just the Monosyllables word lists and her phonics worksheet sets will find lots of helpful information in it, particularly about teaching spelling.

When we moved our office in January, we found a box of Concept Phonics Teacher’s Guide, Level 2, with outdated covers!   Except for the covers, these are the same as the current version, which sells for $39.95.
