Teachers using Samuel Blumenfeld’s Alpha-Phonics can “Cut and Paste” from this Word document to create their own Blumenfeld’s Alpha-Phonics Homework. I recommend that the students write the words in cursive on a sheet of paper at home and read the words to their parents for reinforcement. I gave homework four days every week, Monday through Thursday. I would type the homework for the entire week on a single piece of paper with a little personal letter at the top informing parents of the various activities for the week. Teachers can format the words and sentences to suit their fancy.

In class the students read the words in columns in Alpha-Phonics, but at home they read them across the page. This homework helps the students develop dextral eye movement (smooth left to right movement).
This homework document was originally created for use with the 1983 edition (1995 Printing) on 8/13/05. On 10/6/09, I slightly revised it for my intensive phonics program at the Odessa Christian School: The Cursive Road to Reading and Spelling: The Cursive Cure for ADHD, which, by the way, proved very effective.
On December 5, 2015, I went through the entire document, bringing it into conformity with the 1997/2005/2015 edition. It will still work with the 1983 edition for parents and teacher who have that edition. Prepared by Donald L. Potter – www.donpotter.net
