As a mission driven company, Logic of English® continues to sell the PDF version of First Edition of Essentials in order to provide adult literacy programs, families, and schools an affordable, evidenced-based literacy curriculum. First Edition Essentials has been used with great success since 2012 to teach reading and writing to students ages 8 to adult.
The teacher’s manual includes forty lessons with an assessment every fifth lesson. Lessons are divided into three parts. In part one students will strengthen their phonemic awareness skills and will learn 74 phonograms and 30 spelling rules. (One phonogram and one spelling rule have been added since the publication of First Edition of Essentials.) Part two includes one level of Spelling Analysis. (The current edition of Essentials includes three levels to facilitate differentiation.) Part three teaches all the parts of speech and includes vocabulary activities and dictation. (The current edition of Essentials includes five parts to each unit.)
First Edition Essentials student workbook provides discovery-based learning activities, phonogram games, editing practice, fluency activities, spelling games, and more! Each lesson presents concepts in new ways to engage students and prevent boredom. Clean and simple page layout minimizes visual distraction. Both cursive and manuscript versions are included to reinforce good handwriting skills.
