Reading Development Programs
Accelerated Christian Education’s reading development curriculum includes individualized programs designed for a variety of learners and learning situations. Choose the program you need from the following selections:
Kindergarten with Ace and Christi is based on a complete scope and sequence of concepts and skills needed to prepare a child to read. This full-year program is designed for those who score less than 80 percent on the ABCs with Ace and Christi Pretest.
Sixty PACEs (2,000 pages) filled with Bible and animal pictures, coordination development activities, and full-color picture stories encourage a love for reading. The program is intended to foster quick learning of the phonetic sounds for all letters. The student will also learn social skills, the wonders of God’s world, and the reality of God’s love.
ABCs with Ace and Christi is designed for children who have not been in school or who do not yet know how to read and who scored 100 percent on Test A and 80 percent or higher on Test B of the ABCs with Ace and Christi Pretest. This program will prepare children for the individualized instruction of the PACE curriculum. The lively and entertaining phonetically based program features cartoon characters and includes songs, poems, displays, and character-building activities.
Bible Reading reinforces reading skills with Scripture selections for Levels 2–6. (In Level 1, the instructor reads to the students.) Readings demonstrate Christian principles and complement character-building activities included in the ABCs with Ace and Christi program.
Readmaster Plus® Computerized Reading Program helps readers of all ages improve reading rate and comprehension with a suite of four programs: Readmaster®, Typemaster®, Word Builder, and Math Builder®. These programs are designed to increase a student’s proficiency in reading and comprehension, typing, spelling, and basic arithmetic.
Speaking English with Ace and Christi is designed for young preschool-aged children learning to speak English as a second language. Sixty lessons teach conversational English and prepare students for ABCs with Ace and Christi.
ABCs for English Learners is designed for children ages 5–9 who have passed the ABCs with Ace and Christi Pretest. It combines two of A.C.E.’s reading programs (Speaking English with Ace and Christi and ABCs with Ace and Christi) for a 30–36 week program. This combined course allows students to learn to read and speak English with enough comprehension to begin working the first level English PACEs by week nineteen.
English As Your Second Language is geared for older students and adults who think at an adult maturity level. This DVD-based program also includes study guides. A 6- to 12-month sequence of short lessons leads to intermediate-level proficiency.
Videophonics® combines phonics with DVD technology in a colorful program designed for adults and students 9 years of age and above who have never learned to read or who need remediation to improve their phonic reading skills. Exercises incorporate action videos and color art to develop writing and reading skills.
