The Logic of English Essentials Teacher's Manual is the cornerstone of the curriculum, and essential to teaching the program.

This program is designed for students eight and up who want to improve their reading, spelling, and sentence level writing abilities, systematically teaching why English is spelled in a particular manner--and how to decode, spell, write, and build words into sentences.

This teacher's manual contains a scope & sequence, sample lessons, "before you begin" lessons on phonemic awareness, differentiated-learning sample schedules, instruction on how to teach each lesson part, optional activities, assessment and review lessons, and important tips. Chapter lessons include a large box at the top that allows teachers to quickly identify the phonogram, sounds to explore, number of spelling rules, and type of grammar that will be taught in the lesson. Divided between parts, each lesson includes step-by-step directions that include activities or actions to do, things to put up on the board, scripted questions and lessons, boxed spelling rules, diagrams, materials needed, tips for giving spelling lists, and more. Spelling lists are detailed, with the numbered word bolded, a practice sentence, pronunciation for the teacher giving the list, number of syllables, phonetic markings, hints, part of speech, and related words to help with vocabulary development.

Forty lessons introduce 74 Basic Phonograms and 30 Spelling Rules. While the spelling list includes 480 of the most frequently used words, students learn thousands of additional words with the lessons as they learn how to write compound words and add prefixes and suffixes to form derivatives. Designed for teachers who may be learning these concepts themselves, lessons are structured to help provide consistency.

For students ages 8 & up who have already developed phonemic awareness and know their A-Z phonemes.

539 pages, hardcover.

Is English really illogical, a maze of spellings and exceptions you'll just have to learn?

Uncovering the Logic of English: A Common-Sense Solution to America's Literacy Crisis reveals the phonograms and spelling rules which explain 98% of English words. The rules are explained in an easy-to-read, straightforward manner with a number of easy-to-understand examples. Tying modern reading methods that require students to break the Code of English without help to low literacy rates and misspellings in the workforce, Log of English eliminates the need to guess and provides a logical solution to English spelling.

Learn the answers to questions such as:

  • Why is there a silent final E in have?
  • Why don't we drop the E in noticeable?
  • Why is discussion spelled with -sion rather than -tion?
  • and more!

While it provides a helpful supplement to the Logic of English curriculum, this book can be read independently by anyone interesting in improving their knowledge of English!

202 pages, softcover, with index and glossary.

Cursive Handwriting ProgramCursive Handwriting Program

Develop fluid handwriting in students of all ages, even if they haven't learned print yet! Using a multi-sensory approach that begins with large-motor movements, students learn to form each letter using their pointer finger before advancing to actual writing. Clear instructions provide students with an understanding of how to write each letter and where it is placed on the lines, while shortened, bold instructions emphasize the rhythmic motions needed to develop smooth handwriting. Letters are grouped by initial stroke in order to simplify the learning process and encourage the development of muscle memory.

Once students have mastered fourteen letters, they are taught how to connect letters at the baseline to form words. Lessons include enlarged sample words for students to practice "writing" with their index finger in order to develop a kinesthetic feel of writing words in cursive. After learning the lowercase letters that end on the midline, students are taught explicitly how to connect letters with a dip connector.

Each lesson includes a variety of line sizes so that students can determine which size paper is most comfortable for their hand. The sounds for each of the letters are included to aid teachers in introducing the A-Z phonograms. This program is suitable for students of all ages who desire to master the cursive style of handwriting; suggested schedules for ages 6 & under and 7 & up are provided. 173 pages, softcover. Consumable workbook, pages are not reproducible.
