After much consideration and research, we had settled on TATRAS for our phonics program. We were very pleased to find something that seemed very sound, solid, and straightforward, simple to use and without any bells or whistles. However, I haven't been able to find a source for this program! It seems to be out of print and I haven't been able to contact the author/publisher, or even to find a used copy anywhere.
SO, my question for anyone familiar with this is: Which phonics program is most similar to TATRAS? I have been looking at Spell to Write and Read, and All About Reading, but I have no personal experience with either one. Or maybe there is another program out there that is more similar to TATRAS? The qualities of TATRAS that I am seeking to find in another program are: vertical phonics approach, simplicity of use and layout, historically proven methods, and no extra "bells and whistles".
Any help you can give me would be most appreciated!!
