LANGUAGE ARTS: READING
The Basic Phonics Readers are twelve small readers that are an excellent introduction to reading. The stories and word pages are correlated with the phonics sounds that are presented in class, beginning with one-vowel words and then progressing to two-vowel words. Kindergartners are thrilled with how rapidly they are able to move from one reader to the next. Students will gain a firm foundation in reading and develop a love for books that will last a lifetime.
A full-color set of visual illustrations, the Language Enrichment Visuals, provides an interesting way to teach children the concept of opposites and the difference between positions such as over, under, in, and out. These visuals will help to develop skills in picture interpretation and vocabulary development.
Writing with Phonics K5 is an appealing cursive writing book that is correlated with the phonics program. Students learn to write the letters as they learn what sound the letters say. Teachers appreciate the sample letters that show exactly how each letter is to be written. The “houses“ help students remember where each letter “lives.“ Review is included along with new instruction. Students will write letters, blends, words, and even sentences.
The beautifully illustrated Poetry Favorites for Kindergarten introduces young children to the wonderful world of poetry with familiar, enjoyable poems that evoke laughter, paint a picture with words, and touch children’s sensitive hearts. Children learn poetry of well-known authors such as “The Swing“ by Robert Louis Stevenson and “What Can I Give Him?“ by Christina Rossetti. Children enjoy poetry rich in visual imagery and ear-tickling rhythm and rhyme. Hearing the poems repeated often helps in memorization. Discussing the art in these teaching cards and the meaning of the poems helps develop a better vocabulary.
Numbers Skills K5 is a colorful workbook that reinforces number concepts and formation through 100, addition and subtraction combinations, number sequences, number words, telling time, and working with money. Some pages are designed to be worked together as a class while others are designed as independent work.
Social Studies K5 introduces kindergartners to community helpers, beginnings of American history, interesting features of countries around the world, and simple geography. Children will enjoy coloring, drawing, and completing other fun activities on the worksheet pages.
Even at a very young age, children are curious about everything around them and ask many questions. The science text God’s World K5 is a simple, exciting introduction to God’s plan for the universe. Children will enjoy reading aloud from their first textbook. As the study progresses, even beginning readers will want to read the book aloud because of its intrinsic interest. Units on the five senses, the weather, seasons, seeds, animals, and the seashore all show the amazing wonders of God’s design in this world He has created. Simple drawing and coloring activities highlight the units.
Think and Learn K5 features coloring pages, mazes, directed-art pages, and other activities designed to aid the kindergarten child in the development of writing readiness, hand-eye coordination, visual perception, listening and thinking skills, and good character.
