The Logic of English: A New Way to See WordsLibrary: Great River Regional Library - Saint Cloud Map
Have you always believed English is illogical and inconsistent?
In this workshop your understanding of English will be transformed! Award-winning author Denise Eide will reveal phonograms and spelling rules which explain 98% of English words. No longer will you need to tell your children “that is an exception” when they misread or misspell a word.
Participants will learn:
• The rule which explains the two sounds for C in accent and describes more than 6,000 words!
• Three of the nine reasons for a Silent Final E.
• Why we drop the Silent Final E in servicing but not in serviceable, and much more!
• Why many math and science minded kids struggle with reading and spelling.
Do not miss this revolutionary workshop. You will leave wondering why someone didn’t tell you this in kindergarten.
