Teaching the Phonics Level C:2 and C:3 lessons for two days each, their related workbook pages, plus supplemental readers should thoroughly develop your student’s advanced decoding, spelling, and grammar/writing skills within a typical school year, or shortly thereafter. However, some parents may prefer to take longer, which is fine. Just teach in sequence at whatever rate best fits your child's God-given capabilities.
