This kit is comprised of the student workbook, teacher's manual and jingle/introductory sentence CD. Encouraging student-teacher interaction, the teacher's manual features comprehensive chapters that include everything needed for the lesson, including jingles, exercises, lessons, study notes, tests, checks, writing activities, and more. Lessons are scripted, with directions for students italicized, important concepts and words bolded, and charts included to help teachers and students visualize each idea. Student page numbers are referenced to help both parent and child easily find their respective places. "How to get started" and "jingle guidelines" provide additional hints and information for the teacher. Answers for the student practice and tests (student pages included in the student workbook) are included chronologically. Three-hole-punched pages, softcover.
Divided into a jingle section, reference section, practice section, and test section, students will need to flip to the necessary section in order to complete their lesson practice. The jingle section contains the lyrics to all the jingles, while the practice section provides a variety of activities, including matching, editing, multiple-choice, short answer, writing exercises, charts and other forms of written skill practice. Each test in the test section is divided into four areas: grammar, vocabulary, language skills and a weekly summary. Tests involve a variety of questions which should be familiar from the practice section. The reference section contains vocabulary words, an initial set-up plan, general reference notes, samples, and charts. Softcover.
An audio CD with the jingles and introductory sentences is also included to help students remember concepts such as parts of speech.
This Level 1 kit covers nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, statements, questions, word order, basic punctuation, letters and more.

kegleywvAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Love it!April 5, 2013kegleywvAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I love this curriculum! My first grader is classifying sentences with ease! I don't remember being able to label the parts of speech until much later, and even then the reasoning behind such labels and information was iffy at best. This program uses the jingles to teach children the parts of speech as well as how to become a better writer. I am very pleased!
Mom of 2Evanston, IlAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5shipping is TONS cheaper through CBDJune 8, 2011Mom of 2Evanston, IlAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4In a world of text messaging shorthand, I believe it is important to teach writing. I like this curriculum because it uses several different forms of instruction, of the same material, to reach the various learning levels of each child. In other words, the repetition is comprehensive and diverse--a very important component to learning.
The most important thing to keep in mind is that CBD's shipping cost is really cheap when you compare it to the manufacturer's website. They charge $11! this is true even if you are only getting a 2oz coloring book!

Star1 Stars Out Of 5July 2, 2010StarI thought this product was WAY too advanced for a 1st grader. I really like the products for older children, but this was far to advanced. It is more appropriate for a 3rd grader. I returned it and will be using other materials.
