Many years ago when Cameron (13) was learning to read I used the then well-know phonics program. You know the one with tapes, flash cards, books, more flash cards, and more tapes. Needless, to say the whole process was not a fit for my active and "I-want-to-learn-without-making-mistakes-and-doing-it-once" kind of child. All of the steps seemed to frustrate him and make him not want to learn to read if it meant so much work. He was 4 years old.
The wonderful Teacher's Guide is step-by-step instructions to teaching your child each lesson. The TG tells you when to instruct your child, when to have your child sound out the letter or word, etc. For this momma who LOVES to have everything all laid out to simplify her life, I have really appreciated the hard work Cheryl Lowe put into the Teacher's guide to allow me to just teach my little her phonics lesson without having to spend so much planning time before.

A Teacher Manual guides you through the program and provides helpful assessments and teaching tips.
