    The Teacher Guides provide everything the teacher needs for her part in the teacher-student interaction that is the foundation of this program. While marginally helpful in many spelling programs, the TGs are the core of this one. The General Lesson overview and Sample Lesson Plan found in the beginning are just a prelude to comprehensive daily lessons. With reduced copies of the Student Book, teacher info is “around the edges.” After a brief introduction which reviews the Phonics Focus, each of the 34 detailed weekly lesson plans includes a Teaching Overview, Definitions, Word Study Questions, Activities, Dictation, Guided Student Work [teacher-student activities such as spelling riddles, word equations (i.e. king – k + s = _______), and missing sound words] and a Test. There is variety in most of these activities/work, but two tasks are consistent through each lesson. Colorful Letters requires the student to write (in pencil) words with “bullets” between syllables and then go back and write over vowels/vowel teams in red and consonant teams/blends with blue and slash through silent e. Dictation is the other important part with one day devoted to various aspects: writing letter or letter teams that spell a sound, writing spelling words, and writing a sentence from an informative paragraph included in the student books that features a number of the week’s words. The appendix includes a reproducible weekly spelling test form, spelling review games, spelling rules reference sheets, a list of common English contractions, a phonics overview for the teacher, and (the important) Colorful Keys answer key.

    Just as literacy suffered in the last century when the school systems abandoned phonics instruction, many people contend that handwriting suffered by the same educational system's insistence on beginning with manuscript handwriting. "Cursive first" is their rallying cry! Wanda Sanseri became convinced of this approach and has encouraged it as part of her Spell to Write and Read program. The Cursive First program was developed by Elizabeth FitzGerald to be used either with the SWR program or as a stand alone program of handwriting instruction.

    The "program" is comprised of a Teacher's Manual, Practice Sheets, and the Cursive Phonogram Card Set. The Teacher's Manual is designed to convince you of the merits of starting with cursive. But it also includes information for preparing your student, specific "how-to," directions for using the Practice Sheets/Card Set and a "troubleshooting guide" how to detect visual and perceptual problems. The reproducible (for families/classroom) Practice Sheets get quickly down to the business of practice no cutesy graphics. Lowercase letters are taught separately from uppercase and connections are taught from the very beginning in the natural context of multi-letter phonograms. Although solid and dotted line models are provided, the student is quickly weaned from tracing to more active writing utilizing narrow ruled, dotted lines for practice. The Cursive Phonogram Card Set (yellow cardstock, each page to be cut into fourths) includes instructional dialogue for writing the phonograms on one side and a sample of cursive writing on the other. Both numerals and the first 26 phonograms are included. Laminating these would preserve their use through multiple children.

    A record, a challenge, an encouragement! This little hardback reading log is all of these. The challenge is to read (and record) 1000 books to your young children. The first few pages provide a little nudge of “you can do this” encouragement along with space to record your child’s firsts and favorites. The log pages have numbered lines (the number per page varies) and tidbits of encouragement and quotes. The plentiful illustrations are young-child oriented and fun. (One father robin holds a brightly colored umbrella and his baby robin wears galoshes.) Sprinkled through the book are a few pages of preschool education nuggets. The book concludes with a list of kindergarten skills, a top 10 favorite books page and a congratulations page. A pocket on the inside back cover provides milestone (every 200 books) stickers and an accordion growth chart that links height with number of books “read.” What a wonderful resource and keepsake to build together over time! ~ Janice

    You fill out a passport when you visit other countries; why not track the places you visit in literature the same way? These inexpensive passport-themed booklets make fun little personal reading logs. Each measures 4 ½" x 5 ½" and includes 24 pgs. Students can personalize the first page with some information about themselves, then fill out the rest of the booklet's pages as they plow through their reading list. Each page offers lines to record some basic information about the book as well as an open space to draw or write more. Covers are assorted bold colors and the whole thing is small enough to fit into a larger notebook, lapbook, or scrapbook when complete. – Jess

    Incorporating full color photos and childlike drawings, this first dictionary's layout is orderly and easily draws the reader's eyes across the page. On each two-page layout words are grouped according to interesting themes of importance to pre- and early readers. Topics start with "me," move to family and community, then nature, etc., then finish with key pre-K concepts such as colors, money, opposites, and action words. In each topic, words are used to form 2-3 sample sentences which include Dolch sight words. Some of the occupation pictures are caricatures: the scientist is "mad" and the farmer is slovenly. Overall, this is an appealing early dictionary to help young ones associate the written word with the people and things around them. 9" x 11", 96 pp, hc. ~ Ruth

    When I'm reading, I often come to the end of a page and realize I have no idea what I just read. I was reading the words but was not processing anything. This book by James W. Sire teaches how to read in a way that will not only ensure understanding of the material, but will allow readers to perceive the worldview and reasoning behind the writing. The book is written by a Christian, and though specific guidelines for Bible-reading are not set down, the author states that learning to read other books well will naturally lead to a better understanding of the Bible. There's a conversational tone to the book, with anecdotes and examples of reading interspersed. As the author points out that worldviews and meanings are hidden in everything from advertisements to poetry to non-fiction books, he clearly explains how you can read and analyze to uncover these hidden aspects. Different genres of writing are split into different chapters and then the book shows how to analyze each type of writing to discover the worldview of the writer and the underlying message. There are chapters covering nonfiction, poetry, and fiction, and one that discusses how biographical, literary, historical, and intellectual writing affect the meaning of passages. Each chapter includes excerpts of actual passages in the specific genre so students can practice the reading techniques while they learn about them. A chapter of the book is also dedicated to giving tips on what and where to read. A reading list is provided that categorizes books and other works into different genres and worldviews. Reading these books will show students how the worldviews of the authors are depicted in the writing. This is a great book for showing students how to slow down and really absorb the information they are reading as well as analyze writing and identify themes or worldviews hidden within. 192 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
