    This economical dry-erase board has many possible uses. It's a glossy, flexible, two-sided sheet measuring 12" x 9" (and less than a mm thick). One side is blank white while the other contains a centimeter grid of 20 cm squares by 28 cm squares. Thick, blacker lines split the grid horizontally and vertically to form an XY axis, so the board is great for a variety of graphing activities. Use with dry-erase markers. ~ Rachel

    This is an instance where the title pretty much says it all. The XY axis and grid lines are blue with the axis lines heavier. The back side – also dry erase - is blank. Board is 9" x 12." This would be great addition for middle school math – just draw, and then erase, all those graphing exercises. ~ Janice

    These 3" x 5" index cards are divided into ¼" squares (like graph paper.) The cards are very versatile and could be used as a decimal manipulative, for graphing, as x-y axis cards, for small incentive charts, or for using with tests or quick quizzes. You could even use these to design your own color-by-number designs or mosaics. Printed on lightweight cardstock, the cards will hold up to erasing and reworking, and the matte finish makes them easy to write on. Pack of 100. ~ Donna

    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

    If you've found yourself thinking that the reading/phonics/spelling programs available are just not quite what you're looking for – take a look at this all-in-one program. Square One provides step-by-step lesson plans that teach reading and spelling at the same time it teaches the alphabet (and you can throw in keyboarding for good measure if you wish). It's a different approach, granted, but you'll have to admit as you explore the rationale of its author, Don McCabe, that it makes sense – and addresses some of the weaknesses of typical reading programs. So, here are some of the basic premises of this program. Students need to learn that it is the letters that make the sounds that make the words (rather than just learning a "picture" of a word). Learning alphabetic order is important, so it is taught alongside learning letters that are more commonly used. Words are introduced and taught alongside the letters. Letters are presented in handwriting fonts so students learn to identify the varying appearance of letters. Teaching keyboarding at the same time actively involves both hemispheres of the brain.

    Instruction is divided into 19 units. Most units have three or four lessons and are obviously designed to be completed at whatever pace is comfortable to both teacher and student but perhaps one per day. Review lessons are provided periodically. Beginning lessons are stepped out in detail, but as the teaching pattern becomes familiar, the later lessons provide the needed instructional content in list form: new basic words, power words, names, decodable sentences (for reading, copying, dictating, and/or keyboarding), more decodable sentences, and, possibly, still more decodable sentences.

    With an emphasis on multi-sensory instruction, teachers need to be equipped with a dry erase board and an alphabet strip (which they make) plus cards (also made by the teacher) that include letters, pictures, and words. Letters are presented in manuscript, upper and lower case in whatever font style you choose. You can be flexible here, however, and the author gives you permission to use letter strokes from another system if preferred. There is a big emphasis on legibility. Letter names ("bee") are taught alongside letter sounds ("buh") with examples of words. Words are constantly being added as letters are added so the student develops an increasing vocabulary of basic words (words commonly associated with beginning reading), power words (less familiar but more interesting words), and names (a good way to use upper case letters and to develop familiarity with letters). Decodable sentences are introduced from the beginning and are provided for a variety of activities – reading, copying, dictation, and/or keyboarding. Phonics rules (and tips) are introduced as appropriate. For instance, Unit 3 is concerned with mastering the Y. A phonics rule includes "the sound that the letter y makes depends upon its neighbors." Lesson 1 covers the "ay" word family and mentions some "sight word" exceptions such as "says." Lesson 2 shows the long I (eye) sound and its rules (when it is at the end of a one syllable word and when it follows the letters b, l, m, and r). Lesson 3 teaches that the letter Y has the long E ("ee") sound when it is at the end of a word with two or more syllables. As you can tell from this unit, the alphabetic instructional sequence also provides comprehensive phonics instruction. Letters are taught in this order: A, B, C, D, R, S, T, Y, E, F, G, H, W, I, N, J, K, L, M, O P, QU, V, X, and Z.

    Typically, you will find introductory information at the beginning of a curriculum product. Not so here. 25 pages at the back of the binder-bound volume explain the AVKO rationale and techniques for teaching phonics/reading as well as general miscellaneous explanations. AVKO and Don McCabe brought us Sequential Spelling and his approach to teaching reading – just as with the spelling - is consistent with his experience in teaching dyslexics and in being himself a dyslexic. Instruction in this program is laid out clearly and lessons provide a step-by-step approach. It is not a glitzy program, and what is provided is instructional and textual. All "props" must be provided (usually constructed) by the teacher. This program is aptly subtitled "the only handwriting/keyboarding curriculum that teaches reading and spelling as the alphabet is being taught using only decodable words." That pretty much sums it up. ~ Janice
