Miles and Jax
Winner of the 2018 Moonbeam Award bronze medal for Juvenile Fiction - Early Reader / First Chapter Books
Entertaining stories for children in Foundations C and other developing readers.
Meet Miles and Jax
Jax is a talking meerkat whose boundless curiosity and enthusiasm tend to get him into tight spots. Thankfully, his human friend Miles is there to help him and teach him everything he needs to know about life. Along the way, their adventures lead to the kind of crazy, hilarious moments that only two best friends can have.
Reading the stories - without memorizing sight words!
Miles and Jax provides four phonics-controlled reading texts used in the first half of level C of Logic of English Foundations.
Kids will love reading about Miles and Jax, whose engaging stories disguise the fact that these are actually phonics readers, carefully designed so that students using Logic of English® Foundations can sound out every word, even those commonly taught as sight words. Building on just a few concepts at a time, these readers help kids cross that magic boundary where reading becomes more fun than work!
This book presents the first four stories about this adventurous pair of friends. Miles and Jax uses new concepts introduced in the first half of Foundations C like the phonograms IR, UR, WOR, and OO, multi-syllable words, and vowels saying a schwa sound in an unstressed syllable.
As they read, students continue to practice applying the phonogram sounds and the spelling rules they learned in Foundations A and B, building fluency with these tools as they read sentences, short paragraphs, and multi-syllable words.
More Miles and Jax adventures
Miles and Jax continue their escapades in Miles and Jax: Master Planners, used with the second half of Foundations C (lessons 101-120).
