When I taught my daughter to read back in 2004, I was guided by Mona McNee's Step By Step, daily phonics reading programme. I had previously taught my two sons to read using the same scheme. Deciding to update my resource materials I spent a lot of time creating games and worksheets shamelessly modelled on those featured in the book. It was always my intention to share these PDF documents. In the summer of 2010 work began on phonics4free.org. Shortly after I established contact with Mona to discuss sharing the sheets. Mona was taken with the idea. Since then she has very generously contributed her resources, expertise and guidance to help establish phonics4free.org as a number one reading resource.
