Foundations - Level A Teacher's Manual



Learn alongside your students as you engage them in fun, multi-sensory activities which lay a complete foundation for reading, handwriting, and spelling.

Logic of English products emphasize critical thinking over rote memorization, equipping students for all subjects.

The Foundations A Teacher's Manual is a pick-up-and-teach manual that provides everything you need to introduce students ages 4-7 to reading and handwriting. The manual is filled with fun games and activities that engage children's natural energy and playfulness while teaching them the systematic structure of English. Colorful boxes in the margins provide Teacher tips, ideas for Multi-Sensory Fun, Speech Tips, Challenge Activities, Vocabulary Development Tips, and Book Suggestions. Instructions for teaching both the cursive and manuscript lowercase letters are included as well as eight lessons which aid teachers in assessing student progress and provide resources to create customized review lessons.

For the beginning reader, Level A sets the stage for reading with extensive phonemic awareness activities.
