Commercial Break 

English Decoder Is Amazin' 
Rap-style rhyme 
by Joshua, Michael and Daniel Scott

In this world a lot is crazy
One things clear, not hazy

English Decoder is Amazin'

I know this may sound cheezy
It makes reading so very easy.



 A Song For Confused Parents
To the tune of the Brady Bunch

Here's the story
Of a confusing letter
And yes, you can try this one at home.

A 's the first sound
Learned by children
The whole world around

Listen to the sound of this letter
/a/ as in apple that you crunch
When you learned this one rule you felt better
But it changed by lunch!

Now the “A” has an e that is silent
So AAA is the sound it will make
Kids who aced the apple rule this morning
Will now their pencils break :~

If you are a confu- used parent
You are part of much more than a bunch.
That’s why we made English Decoder
Studies show it’s not a hunch.
