Younger students begin with the Grade K workbooks, All Aboard and On Track, which feature larger print and fewer exercises. All Aboard includes coloring, cut-and-paste, tracing, and circling exercises to help children develop phonemic awareness, letter recognition, manuscript writing, visual & auditory discrimination, and other readiness skills. On Track features matching, tracing, drawing, fill-in-the-blank, and other exercises to help children develop systematic phonics, vocabulary, reading, and comprehension abilities. Six "Phonetic Storybook" kindergarten readers are filled with fun illustrations that will hold students' attention as they read the simple sentences that reinforce the lessons.
Grade 1 students will use the Off We Go workbook, which includes follow-the-dots, coloring pages, and tracing exercises that teach letter recognition, sequencing, auditory discrimination, cutting & pasting, and phonemic awareness. The second Grade 1 book, Raceway, has fill-in-the-blank, matching, and writing exercises to help children develop their understanding of systematic phonics, vocabulary, spelling, manuscript writing, comprehension, and grammar. The seventeen Level 1 Readers provide the practice and confidence-building students need to become fluent, independent readers.
The Assessment Book includes 17 book-end assessments for the Phonetic Storybook Readers and 3 achievement tests that assess your students' word comprehension, word recognition, and story & sentence comprehension.
Teacher instructions are provided for kindergarten in the K Instructor's Directions for the K/Level 1 Combo Kit Pamphlet, which provides a 4-page overview of the program's Level K components. The Instructor's Manual for Level 1 is much more detailed, and includes goals, suggested pacing, materials needed (with page numbers), procedures with semi-scripted instructions, phonics songs and games, and a written spelling test. An answer key is also provided.
