What Is Logic of English?
How Did We Use Logic of English?
|Giddy when I opened this box!|
|This baby is about 1 1/2" thick!|
|Chart laying out the scope and sequence for the program|
|Symbol explanation and materials needed|
|Loved this section! It had different schedule scenarios based on your student...|
|Explanation of how each lesson is laid out|
|I loved this suggestion for "say to spell". Holding up the fingers to match the number of letters making the sound! Brilliant!|
|Better explanation of the multi-sensory symbol guide|
|Charts all the phonograms to be taught, their sounds, and sample words|
|Lays out all the spelling rules|
|All the spelling lists in the curriculum...|
The next thing I did was buy a box to hold all the cards that were included. You will need something to hold the cards, because there are a lot of them! A photo box is the ideal size and I found a super cute one for just $3. I pulled out some rubberbands and clips and got everything organized.
|If it's a phonogram card, grammar flash card or spelling rule for the current lesson it gets separated with the black clip|
|Learning sounds of long /a/|
|learning the broad sound of /a/|
|Some examples of rare spellings of long o|
|These little holders work perfectly for the cards. I like to keep up all the spelling and grammar rules for the lesson for quick access during the week.|
|You can see here that I highlighted one of the activities in the optional box at the top. I knew he'd enjoy it playing charades, so we did it.|
I love the way that the program does the assessment and review. It is very non-test. It includes the student in the process of determining what THEY think they need to work on. Before the first assessment in Lesson 5, it recommends you remind your student of these things:
I love it. These really opened up discussion on why learning how to spell properly is important to Little Britches future...he had a LOT to say on that third question. LOL!
Each of the assessments consist of a spelling assessment and then a spelling word review.
I really like the next part of the assessment where the student can see all the words they've covered in their spelling lists and THEY can mark the ones they think they need more help with. There is a matching list in the teacher manual where the teacher can note their own observations too.
