    The Combo kit includes all Level 1 components plus Instructor's Directions for Kindergarten, two consumable student worktexts, and a set of six phonetic storybook readers. The student worktexts are totally revised, even down to the theme and names. With a train theme, the All Aboard and On Track workbooks teach alike and different, classification, completing a pattern, tracing, following directions, reading readiness skills, letter recognition, letter sounds, manuscript writing, word blending, vocabulary, beginning reading, comprehension, spelling, listening, and speaking. On Track also includes ten tear-out, color, and read storybooks. The six phonetic storybook readers are correlated to the instruction, reinforcing the phonics, reading, and writing skills taught. One colorful reader covers each short vowel, plus a sixth reader with combined short vowel words. Student materials are also available separately for teaching more than one student with the program. For parents who did not purchase the Combo kit initially, the Instructor's Directions for Kindergarten is not available separately; however, the publisher says that you should not need it. Read on for a full description of the Level 1 kit. We are again able to offer the workbooks and readers for the Sing, Spell, Read & Write kits; see below for Kindergarten components.

    Considering the approach, ease of use, content, child-appeal, benefits, effectiveness and cost of all the phonics programs we were familiar with, Sing, Spell, Read & Write was our choice for personal use. We have used several programs and read about many others. Although we didn't use this program in total with our children (because we extended the spelling, used italic handwriting instead of ball and stick, etc.) we did find it the most used and useful of those we tried. AND the results were wonderful! If you're looking for something to really lay it all out for you, something that works, is easy to use, and will have your child singing the letter sounds in days, followed closely by actually reading...this is what we recommend! Here are some of our reasons:

    The "raceway" theme is very appealing and motivating to children, who love tracking their success via race car around a track as they complete the 36 steps to independent reading.

    The songs are unquestionably contagious - children will sing and sing and sing and learn their letter sounds, long and short vowel sounds, blending vowels and consonants, and digraphs almost effortlessly - and enjoy it! That is, if you can bear to listen to it sung over and over, multiplied by x times the number of children using it throughout the years.

    The 17 phonetic, full-color storybooks cover all 36 steps, providing immediate, rewarding reinforcement for the decoding skill just learned. This makes good sense.

    The games are not just fluff, but real fortification of phonetic skills. They are more fun, however, if you can play with more than one child.

    The teacher training videos included in the set will greatly aid you in understanding/teaching the phonics program - and give you the confidence to do it!

    Included is a complete, phonetic spelling program dove-tailing with the phonetic constructs being learned and a complete handwriting program (if you use ball and stick manuscript).

    thick, four-color workbooks include grammar and creative writing

    phonics songs are contained in both cassette and CD formats

    The two workbooks and the assessment book included in the set are the only consumables in the program. Replacements must be ordered from the publisher.

    To be honest, we have just a few quibbles :

    1. Some of the tapes/voices are not as clear or distinct as a perfectionist might demand. Some may go a little too "fast" for your taste - notably the ferris wheel song used to practice blending sounds smoothly. For us, this was a plus, since we kept at it until we could keep up with the song, resulting in perfect blending!

    2. The "prizes" included are...well...rather cheesy at best and who needs 4 or 5 yo- yos, several plastic magnifiers, multiple thin plastic bracelets, and numerous plastic sack puppets? When using with one child, one of each would do nicely. To alleviate this, see our special offer below.

    If you have used and liked Sing, Spell, Read & Write Level 1, here's the next step for you. Along with reviewing the phonics skills learned in Level 1, this program also integrates vocabulary, spelling, reading comprehension, grammar, proofreading, handwriting (manuscript and cursive) and reference skills. This level uses the phonics CD from the level 1 program; there are no CDs in this set. The Level 1 audio CD can be ordered separately if you didn't use the Level 1 program (see Level 1 materials). This is the kit for individual tutoring and it contains Grand Tour workbooks I and II, answer keys for each workbook, teacher's manual for cursive writing, a dry erase marker, and a miniature dry marker eraser. This program is easy to use, and there aren't a lot of cluttered plans to follow. Directions for everything except the handwriting are printed right in the student books, which are colorful and kid appealing. These consumable books are divided into 18 chapters each. Grand Tour I covers in order a short vowel review; two-vowel words; silent e words, 'c' as 's' words; 'āy,' 'y' as 'ī,' 'ge,' 'gi,' 'gy' as soft g and 'y' as 'ē;' 'ed' = 't' and 'ed' = 'd;' 'ed' says 'ed', silent e, double last consonant before adding a suffix; 'or' words; 'sh' and 'ch' words; 'er,' 'ir,' 'ur' words; 'th' & 'tch' words; 'ow,' 'ou,' and 'ew' words; 'qu' & 'wh' words; and 'ar' words. Grand Tour II includes: 'aw' and 'au;' 'ing,' 'ang,' 'ong,' 'ung,' 'oy' and 'oi;' 'ōō;' 'tion;' silent 'gh' words; 'ar' = 'or' and 'dge' = 'j;' 'ue,' 'x' = 'cks,' 'ie'='ē,' 'eā' = 'ā;' 'ea' = 'ĕ,' 'ear' = 'er,' changing 'f' to 'ves;' long 'I' & 'o,' 'u' = 'ŏŏ,' 'air;' 'ui' = 'ōō,' 'or' = 'er;' contractions, 'āre' = 'air,' 'a' = 'ŏ;' 'c' as 's,' silent 'w;' silent 'k' & 'l;' silent 'b,' 'g' and 'h;' silent 't,' 'qu' = 'k,' 'ph' = 'f;' 'ch' = 'k,' 'ss' = 'sh;' rule breakers & whacky words, 'ch' = 'sh,' 'ous;' and multi-syllable words. Lessons include a spelling and phonics rule, and a section on language arts skills. The concepts are accompanied by plenty of practice, which includes fill-in the blank, word scrambles, word searches, crosswords, proofreading, etc. There is no shortage of spelling words in this program. Word lists are printed on all of the pages except handwriting practice and proofreading pages. There are over 1400 spelling words in the level 2 program!

    The answer keys are black and white. They are small format student pages (4 per page) with the answers filled in.

    Block manuscript is practiced in Grand Tour I. Letters are presented and practiced in ABC order. The teacher's instructions are scripted so there is no room for error when teaching handwriting. Cursive is introduced and practiced in Grand Tour II. The back of each workbook has a high gloss finish and can be written on with the dry erase marker for practice. There are also handwriting practice pages in the lessons. This Homeschool edition of the program does a "grand" job of teaching the basics for spelling, reading and writing. Each workbook is 176 pages and is not reproducible. ~ Donna

    Sara Jordan's series of language learning songs has been around for a while now (item #053347). This, however, is an enhanced version of Bilingual Beginners Spanish and uses the same songs as on that CD, but is expanded on. A nicely done workbook is included so you now have lessons to go with the songs. Students will work on oral skills (greetings, following instruction, singing, rolling R's), writing (made for beginner writers with dotted letters/words to trace), reading (simple words, word boxes, coloring activities, matching), grammar (questions, affirmative, negative, nouns, gender, articles, present tense verbs), vocabulary building (greetings, colors, numbers, home, time, food, family, body) and spelling (alphabetizing, capitalizing, Spanish accent marks). There are 12 lessons all together with answers in the back. For each lesson, there are cards for games and teaching activities: requires printing off cards from the publisher's website. Lessons are shown in both English and Spanish and have a group activity, the audio portion from the CD, and 2 or 4 writing activity pages. Since the CD models pronunciation, knowing how to speak Spanish isn't necessary. I think it would be helpful to have some prior exposure to aid your young learners' pronunciation. Reproducible for one classroom/homeschool. 63pp. ~ Sara

    A creative, interactive, hands-on approach to vocabulary! What better way to retain the learning of new words? Using index cards, a file box, and a good dictionary, this approach is a welcome departure from the typical workbook fare. And, subtitled: Help for Reading, Writing, Spelling and S.A.T. Scores, it's obvious from looking at this book that it would, indeed, do just that! How? By teaching the roots of the English language found in Greek and Latin. Since the majority of our words are rooted in these classical languages, mastering these roots is a key that will open the door to understanding a myriad of words! The creative activity suggestions in this book could become the basis for wonderful unit studies as well.
