    This program can be used for Levels A, B or C. 30 lessons are included in a spiral-bound book with ready-made lesson plans, Scripture used as a subject for writing, and multi-level checklists. Each lesson provides a specific objective, at least two translations of Scripture, an assignment with checklists, and a space for the final copy to be written or pasted into the book, which creates a portfolio of the year's work. Checklists are provided for the three different levels. Sample compositions are plentiful, as well as vocabulary development and review exercises to strengthen understanding of stylistic techniques. The story of Noah forms the core of the first two units. Unit 3 focuses on sequencing and sources include the miracle at Cana, the parable of the talents, the story of Jonah, the Good Samaritan, and the Prodigal Son. Unit 4 lessons have students read and summarize Paul on Charity, Jesus' Miracles, Christ's Last Words, along with stylistic exercises taken from Psalms. Custom pictures have been created for Unit 5 lessons (Esther, Daniel, Nativity, Paul's conversion), and Unit 6 uses the synoptic gospels to teach multiple reference summarizing. With Unit 7, a few creative writing opportunities are suggested, and Unit 8 continues the five paragraph model with essays on Job's suffering, Christ's condemnation by Pilate, and the duties of a Christian. Unit 9 presents an analysis of the books of Ruth and Jonah, as well as the story of David and Goliath.

    Primary Language Lessons is one of those engaging programs first published long ago that many have used and loved and said "if only". If only the book would lay flat. If only the course had room for the student to write. If only I didn't have to explain why "tomorrow" has a hyphen after the "o". If only there were some information about the authors and artists. If only this art print were a little clearer – or a little bigger. This newest version will sweep away all your "if onlys". And, the really good news is that none of the well-loved features of the original have disappeared. Content – right down to all the high quality art and literature – is virtually the same, except for those few updates and edits done to provide more clarity. Each lesson still introduces principals of grammar and word use through question and answer dialogue, composition, memorization, oral presentation, and dictation. There's even a few added features you might not have thought to include in your litany of "if onlys." Cute little icons have been added to each segment of the lesson to designate its purpose – read, write, memorize, copy, tell/narrate, or study. Tear-out pages in the back provide copies of all the dictation passages. Lots of lined space for all written assignments is provided. My favorite feature is the fourteen pages of biographical notes on most of the authors and artists found in the back. 258 pgs, coil-bound ~ Janice

       In Book 4 the family travels through the United States. The twins and friends learn about landmarks, Americas heroes, and work in their garden as they review concepts from Book 3 and do further work with larger numbers, metric measurement, decimals, operations with equivalent fractions, and more. Math Fact Reviews are incorporated into the lessons so that students won’t forget foundational math information.

    Based on the three-point instructional method: "this is;" "show me;" and "what is?" as well as an underlying Socratic question/answer format, ShillerMath Language Arts is Montesorri at its best. The totally scripted teaching manuals each provide a semester's worth of daily lessons (71-84 lessons in each book). Kit 1 (Books 1-4) is designed for ages 3-5. We understand there will be two more levels: Books 5-8 are for ages 4-7; Books 9-12 are for ages 6-8. If these age levels seem a bit odd to you (they do to me as well), it's because there are two levels of things happening here. One is phonics instruction and the other is an amazing/exciting combination of language arts "more." For example, here are the "more" topics covered on the Book 4 Review Test imitate (speaking, listening, reading, writing), introduce yourself, repeating 5 words back in order, articles (as in part of speech), retelling a story, emotions (tell me about a time when . . .), touch typing (home position basics), rhyming words, identifying adjectives, describing basic geographic features, describing peripheral vision, naming the months of the year, naming first ten ordinal numbers, comparisons, copying a very diverse collection of shapes, showing directions, and, lastly, identifying Shakespeare and naming a sonnet. The bottom line is that there is a lot of learning going on here and a lot of flexibility. An older student (5 years) might start with Kit 1 and fly through the learning but still come away with new information.

    Lessons require no preparation and vary in both length and complexity. There is also great variety in the content which is why the teacher is encouraged to skip lessons if the student is not ready for its content. Since one of the basic premises of Montesorri education is that children are natural learners, the teacher's role is to provide a learning-friendly environment and the proper tools. Students are usually the best gauge of their own competence and will know when they have closure on a topic so be prepared to be flexible and sensitive. There is a checklist included, as the back cover of each lesson book is to be used to record when a lesson is completed.

    A good part of Montessori instruction is managing the dialog between teacher and student. Although appropriate wording is modeled in the lessons, there is also general information at the front of the Lesson Books on building an environment conducive to learning.

    As mentioned before the Lesson Books are totally scripted. This means that everything you need to say to the student is provided for you. For instance, Lesson 24, Book 4 practices comparative terminology. There are eight points to the lesson. The first point covers "est" words and comparing three or more things. The second point talks about the "er" words and comparing two things. Then there are five sets of pictures of various objects to compare starting with three objects of varying sizes but progressing to four and six objects. About 95 pgs each, spiral-bound.

    The lesson on emotions is illustrative of the different directions this curriculum takes. First we are told that "emotions are what we feel." There are pictures of four children illustrating these emotions: shy, sad, jealous, and sorry. As part of the lesson the child is encouraged to demonstrate how she/he feels with each of those emotions as well as to tell a story about a time when he/she was . . . . . All in all, an interesting and excellent introduction to an intriguing subject.

    The Mother Goose Book includes 358 "stories." These are to be used as part of each day's lessons (read-aloud) and can be requested by the child as desired. These stories are printed in large print and would be read by the child (if able). There are multiple stories on each page. Please note there are no illustrations at all in the book. 152 pgs. spiral-bound.

    The Lesson Mat needs to be mentioned. It is large (22" x 34") and cream-colored. Fabric is some sort of foam but the touch is velvety. It is slightly stretchy in one direction. This mat is used with all lessons and serves as a portable workspace allowing you to take your lessons anywhere inside (or outside) of the house.

    The Kit contents all have a purpose within the lessons. While most of the items are somewhat typical (letters, numbers, crayons, Play-Doh), that is not true of the Montessori shapes manipulatives. There are ten shapes (square, circle, triangle, rectangle, trapezoid, quatrefoil, pentagon, oval, elipse, and curvilinear triangle) illustrated two different ways: blue shapes with molded lifters and ten matching pink stencil shapes. Stencils are 5.5" squares; shapes are various sizes with 3 7/8" square being the largest.

    Kit 1 includes Lesson Books 1-4; foam mat; magnetic alphabet (uppercase & lowercase letters plus numbers); quinoa grain, washable large crayons; shapes with knobs and matching bases (10), 4 tubs of Play-Doh; book of Mother Goose Rhymes; and CD with 24 language arts songs. ~ Janice

    Teaching language arts has never been so fun and easy! Watch your student’s eyes light up with understanding… English does make sense. With The Phonics Road, your student will learn to spell and write as well as they read.

    Combining seven (7) language arts skills in one program?! YES!

    Complete video teacher training through every word, rule, and lesson? YES!

    Everything you need already included? YES!

    Easy to learn/Easy to teach? YES!!

    Something for every student’s learning style? YES!

    Extra help and resources for our teachers? YES!

    Help stop/reverse Dyslexia? YES!

    Homeschool Friendly? YES!

    Charter/Flex School Friendly? YES!

    School Friendly? YES!

    There are four levels in The Phonics Road system. Each new level builds upon the skills learned in previous levels. This allows students starting with any skill level to become great spellers, writers and readers – FAST!

    This method creates greater results, in a shorter time span and with less homework.

    The Phonics Road Level Four is designed to follow Level Three. This level completes the skills your students have been building in The Phonics Road and includes all 7 language arts skills: Spelling, Handwriting, Reading, English Grammar, Composition, and Literature Studies with an Introduction to Latin while incorporating Music, Art, and History. As the teacher, you are guided step by step in how to finish teaching all these skills seamlessly, with ease and confidence.

    In Level Four, we have produced and provide twenty-two (22) hours of explicit teacher training via our video/text. This is the core of the curriculum and allows even a new teacher to begin teaching this method and level with very little preparation time needed. You also receive the physical pieces for both teacher and student. This includes the Teacher’s Blueprint Manual, with Literature Study Guide, and the Student Workbook, Student Literature Study and the book Carry On, Mr. Bowditch, by Jean Lee Latham.

    It’s still as easy as 1-2-3…

    • 1) The Teacher watches the video/text for the week’s lesson (averages about 30-45 minutes per week) …
    • 2) …and using the completed Teachers Blueprints provided, takes any notes needed for that day.
    • 3) Follow exactly what was modeled on the video and begin with your students.

    The magic of this method continues through the interaction between teacher and students, building advanced reasoning and thinking skills. Each student will continue to learn with their natural learning-style (visual, auditory, kinesthetic) while mastering the others. This continues to create success for both the teacher and the students!

    “I wish Barbara had been my grammar teacher. I feel like I'm learning alongside my student. There are many things in The Phonics Road programs that were never explained to me as a student.” – Emma M.

    “Even with my PhD, I realized just looking at the knowledge I have gained, and the ability to read, decode, spell, and memory my students have gained, this program is without peers when it comes to English Language Arts for the Elementary age.” - Phil D.
