Need ideas...Book to teach adult to read

Recommended Posts

I am looking for ideas on books to use to teach an adult to read.  I LOVE the materials by Sound Foundation, Apples and Pears Spelling and Dancing Bears Reading  Sound Foundation books.  Just wondering if there is something else out there that is really good and easy to use.

Caveat....this will be used in a prison by one prisoner to teach others to read so needs to be soft cover, no staples, reusable, etc. but effective.  Obviously, no "adult" content either.

Phonics Pathways, by Delores Hiskes

It's a single, softcover book that teaches phonetic decoding.  I used it with all three of my kids, and they were all reading fluently by the end of the book.  There's nothing cutesy or babyish about it, and nothing complicated.  You just start at the beginning of the book, and work through it, page by page.

That is one I thought of....inexpensive but works for many.

Once a student gets beyond the basic phonics stage, REWARDS would be good, but I think the workbook has staples.

Laubach Literacy teaches adults to read. Their materials are free, I think. (Tutored adults thru LL about 28 years ago.) Phonics Pathways would be my choice, though.

Staples can be removed, and the pages sewn/tied together, perhaps right through the staple holes.
