    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

    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

    Children learn differently, that is just a fact. Parents and teachers often have to teach a concept to an audience with a variety of learning styles. So how can one instructor meet the needs of so many learners (even 2 or 3) without having to come up with several different lesson plans? Ta da! Here is a reproducible workbook with over 375 differentiated activities for language arts! Each page has a concept at the top followed by a grid of 9 exercises. Your student(s) will choose as many of the squares to complete as you assign (do 5 of the 9 for example.) Students will gravitate to the problems which appeal to their learning style. Each grid is accompanied by a practice page. This can be completed after you have discussed the lesson or use it as an assessment to check understanding. 42 grids in all cover reading comprehension, literary response, word analysis, fluency, vocabulary, writing conventions/applications, reference skills, spelling and more. Use these fun pages as a warm up activity, homework, center time or free time. Answers are in the back. 92pp, pb ~ Sara

    These 100 reproducible activity sheets are great daily exercises for extra language practice. The format is consistent throughout the pages. Each page holds three separate exercises. At the top of the page is a short story, in which six vocabulary words are underlined and followed by blanks. Below the passage are the six definitions, lettered a-f. As students read through the passage, they write the letter of the correct definition in the blanks after the words. The middle section contains a list of six words for students to practice spelling and writing. The section at the bottom of each page gives six phrases or words for students to replace with a new word. For example, "to move like a rubber ball" or "beautiful." Students would then respond by writing something such as "bounce" and "pretty" on the blanks provided. 112 pgs. - Melissa
