Attention, Homeschool Parents!

Teaching your children to read, write, and spell doesn't have to be complicated, or cost you hundreds of dollars for kits, leveled workbooks, teacher's manuals, or monthly fees. Find out more, below!

Does This Describe You?

  • I want to teach my child to read and write.
  • I want a simple, straightforward path to follow.
  • I want to use one book to teach both reading, handwriting, and spelling.
  • I don't want to spend a ton of money.
  • I want a lifetime deal- pay once, for all my children, for life.

If any of these describe you, I have some very good news.

Hello, Mr. Webster


In 1783, at the age of 26, Noah Webster (The father of American Education) finished his famous American Spelling book for the purpose of teaching students how to read and write. It sold around 100,000,000 copies! and helped propel America to a near universal literacy rate, around 95%.

Then around the 1820's, the plague of Look-Say reading theory swept through America's educational landscape; forever confusing educators and parents about how our English alphabet really works, and condemning future generations to rampant illiteracy.

But that's all about to change. Noah Webster's spelling method is back, and it's better than ever!

ABC Journey Companion Course

In this step-by-step Video Course, you will learn how to teach your child to read and write with confidence

Image
  • Confidently guide your child from the pre-reading stage, to mastery of the written word.
  • Learn the essentials steps of reading and writing.
  • Follow the step-by-step path to literacy that Noah Webster and past educators blazed; and which led to the most literate generations in our nation's history.

I created the ABC Journey Companion Video Course to help homeschool parents who want to go deeper in the ABC Journey program; to help those who are just starting out, those who need a little more guidance than just going through the book, those who desire a bit of community while going on the journey, and for those wanting more access to myself.

For those of you looking to get started with your child's reading and writing, I'm here to show you how clear and simple it can really be. Are you ready?

Meet Stephen Kurkinen

Your Friend in the Journey

Stephen Kurkinen, Designer

Hi there, I'm Stephen Kurkinen, one of 7 boys, a fellow homeschooling parent, a father to 6 amazing girls, and an English teacher in Asia since 2004.

Seeking the Ancient Paths

Over the past few years I have spent large amounts time, money, and energy plowing through phonics materials that were either too complex or cumbersome for any normal parent to use; too simplistic and vague, lacking necessary instructions; or just crazy expensive.

In my search for the best homeschooling phonics and writing curriculums for my own children I stumbled upon the classic reading and spelling books used in America and England.

It turns out that intellectual giants of the past (including the father of American Education, Noah Webster) had already figured out the best way to teach our students how to read, pronounce, spell, and write with excellence. But their way was different from the methods used in modern schools, and even most homeschooling curriculum. They taught reading by teaching students to spell words, first

But there are a few main problems with these older materials that affect a modern parent's ability to use them:

  • the absence of clear instructions on how to use the materials 
  • the lack of pre-reading, and handwriting instruction
  • the natural change in word meaning and usage over the centuries

My desire is to take that wisdom of the past, that created generations of literate people, add some of the missing steps, clarify what might cause confusion, and make it easy to use in your own homeschool setting.

The journey to reading and writing should be as clear and straightforward as possible; in language that normal parents and students can understand, and at a price they can afford. That's why I wrote ABC Journey.

THE RESULTS

ABC Journey is meant to guide your child from the pre-reading stage to a 12th-grade reading and spelling level, as well as give your child the skills to write in elegant cursive.

With daily work through this book, you can be confident in your ability to teach your child to read and write, and be confident that your child will have everything they need to succeed on their Journey to Literacy.

In Your Service,

Stephen Kurkinen

Fellow Homeschool Father, and Friend along the Path.

Stages Covered in ABC Journey

Image

1. Pre-Reading Stage

In this lesson I cover the question- "When should I begin to teach my child to read and write?" I also suggest a variety of activities you can do with your child to build a solid language foundation, and how to improve their:

  • Language abilities
  • Reading preparation
  • Writing preparation, and
  • Linguistic awareness

Image

2. Alphabet

In this lesson we cover:

  • The names of the 26 letters of the English alphabet
  • Lower & upper case
  • Cursive & print
  • Consonants and vowels, and
  • Helping your child identify the alphabet in different forms of print.

Image

3. Handwriting

In this lesson we go over the following elements of cursive handwriting:

  • How to Posture Your body
  • Paper Angle and Handling
  • Pen grip
  • How to write the 26 Letters of the Alphabet, in lower and upper case

Image

4. Phonics

In the Phonics Stage we introduce the letter-to-sound connection:

  • The basic sounds that vowels and consonants make (phonograms)
  • How to Blend those sounds into syllables and words (decoding)
  • How to write simple words of one syllable (encoding)

Image

5. Syllables

The missing key to spelling and word pronunciation is syllable division and syllable emphasis. Syllables are:

  • The most fundamental building block of words. 
  • More accurate at representing the connection between letters and sounds than normal phonics (phonograms). 
  • Hold the keys to pronunication and spelling patterns

Image

6. Spelling

In this final section we combine the previous skills of the Alphabet, Handwriting, Phonics, & Syllables by practicing though Webster's carefully organized spelling lists. Help your child master the English written word, as they learn:

  • new phonograms
  • spelling patterns
  • pronunciation skills
  • and more.
