Miles and Jax: Master Planners
New! Entertaining stories for children in Foundations C and for other developing readers.
Meet Miles and Jax
Miles and his best friend Jax never stop planning new schemes and adventures. From investigating a mystery to building an epic treehouse, the ongoing escapades of an irrepressible talking meerkat and his clever, loving human continue in this delightful sequel to Miles and Jax.
Reading the stories - without memorizing sight words!
The second book in the Miles and Jax series, Miles and Jax: Master Planners provides phonics-controlled reading texts used the second half of Foundations C.
Kids will love reading about Miles and Jax! Their 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 four more stories about this adventurous pair of friends. Providing additional reading practice alongside the Foundations C Readers, Miles and Jax: Master Planners uses new reading and phonics concepts introduced in Foundations C like the phonograms EY, DGE, EW, and AU, why lazy O sometimes says /u/, the rule "C always softens to /s/ before E, I, or Y," and several more reasons for a silent E.
As they read, students continue to practice applying the phonogram sounds and spelling rules they learned earlier in Foundations, building fluency with these tools as they read sentences, short paragraphs, and multi-syllable words.
The previous adventures of Miles and Jax
The stories in the first book, Miles and Jax, correspond to the first half of Foundations C (lessons 81-100).
- Foundations C
- Also a great reading option for children in Foundations D and any other developing readers who are learning accurate phonics tools for sounding out English words.
Miles and Jax Lessons for Foundations C, eight lessons using the Miles and Jax texts, are now available for purchase as a PDF! These lessons may be used with Miles and Jax as supplemental activities for those using the Foundations C Teacher’s Manual 1st Edition, or as stand-alone reading comprehension lessons. These lessons are included in the Foundations C Teacher’s Manual 2nd Edition, published in June of 2018.
For those using the 1st Edition Foundations C Teacher’s Manual
