    Now there's no reason to wait until your student is in 3rd grade. Bible Heroes is an excellent language arts bridge from IEW's Primary Arts of Language to their theme-based writing lessons. Or you might decide to use it as a new entry point for the IEW program (as you finish your favorite phonics/reading program). Either way, I think you will be very pleased with what this program supplies – lessons that not only provide instruction in writing with structure and style (as the name implies), but also introductory grammar and Bible. The 27 lessons cover IEW Unit 1 (two lessons teaching Key Word Outlines), Unit 2 (seven lessons on Writing from KWOs), Unit 3 (twelve lessons on Summarizing Narrative Stories), Unit 4 (three lessons on Summarizing References), Unit 5 (three lessons on Writing From Pictures), and Unit 7 (one lesson on Creative Writing) The approach is solidly multi-sensory. Lessons include verbal and written activities as well as games for reinforcement and all source material is taken from the Bible. Although the target audience for this course is 1st-2nd grade, material can be adapted for up to 5th grade.

    The consumable Student Book provides instructions which are to be read to the student, additional gray boxes that have notes to the teacher, and space for students to complete lessons and writing assignments. Appendices include: styles helps, game pieces (cardstock), and vocabulary cards (also cardstock).

    Purchasers of this course have access to two free downloads from the IEW website. One of the downloads is the Student Resource Notebook (also available for purchase in hard copy format). It provides supplementary and reference material needed by the student. The other download is the Bible Heroes Teacher's E-book; this Teacher's Manual is a vital part of the course and its use is expected. It provides more detailed instructions for each lesson, a scope and sequence chart, ideas for discussion of each hero and virtue, answers to review questions, sample key word outlines, brainstorming pages, instruction for games and activities, copies of checklists, and copies of game boards. ~ Janice

    Integral to IEW's Primary Arts of Language program, this pull-out Letter Stories portion provides letter introduction and beginning printing practice. Letters are presented by starting stroke so students learn a few strokes that are then used with many letters. The letter stories help the child remember both the sound and the shape of each letter with the focus being on the sound a letter makes instead of its name. Applying only to lowercase letters (no stories for capital letters), capitals are introduced as the way the lowercase letters look when they are dressed up at the beginning of a sentence or a proper noun. Pacing can be flexible in keeping with the child's ability.

    Progression of instruction is first a slanted or vertical surface (whiteboard) and using tactile materials (modeling dough or finger paint) with the first reproducible sheets being letter blocks (printing one letter in each square) before introducing the typical guidelines. Contrary to conventional wisdom, this program recommends using pens, gel pens and fine-tipped markers as writing instruments.

    The Printing w/ Letter Stories packet includes an overview of the program, a scope and sequence (45 lessons that show when to introduce what letters as well as when to incorporate practice and review), and detailed teacher notes for each lesson as well as the actual blackline masters (reproducible for home or classroom use). Letter Stories are provided, but the teacher is encouraged to be expressive and to embellish. The Blackline Masters include lesson handouts, additional practice pages, guideline paper, and matching game cards. Did I forget to mention games? An ongoing matching game with a growing number of playing cards is played at regular intervals for review. The cards can be printed (and cut out) from the Blackline masters or a pre-printed Card Deck (with rounded edges) is available.

    An enjoyable, thoroughly-prepped, multi-sensory program introducing handwriting (and phonics, and language arts) to your young student, the materials, since reproducible, are likewise cost effective. ~ Janice

    Mr. and Mrs. Mallard are looking for the perfect place to raise a family. They select a quiet spot on an island in a river in Boston.

One day Mr. Mallard decides to venture down the river, and he tells Mrs. Mallard to meet him at the park in exactly one week. Mrs. Mallard teaches the little ducklings how to swim, dive, stay away from danger, and walk in a straight line, and then they are off to the park to meet their father. Mrs. Mallard leads them to the riverbank and off they march to the park. Will they get through the busy town safely?

    Once there was a little pink house built in the country on a hill with a brook and trees and lots of flowers. The little house loved watching the children play and the seasons change. She could see the lights of the city in the distance, and it made her wonder what it would be like to live there. The city grew closer and closer to the little house until it had all but swallowed her up. The little house didn't like this much; she was very sad as she daydreamed of the old days on her hill with the trees and the flowers. Will anyone save the little pink house? Will she ever get to see the trees and flowers again? 40 pgs, pb.
