I am currently using the blue program with my 5 yo and 7 yo and we all LOVE it! I wandered around in the LA wilderness for a few years with my oldest child never feeling really comfortable or confident in any program Then one day I happened upon this It was just what I was looking for First it's all encompassing You get phonics spelling comprehension penmanship creative writing--the whole deal! This makes for great retention and interestSecond it's easy for me to use with essentially no teacher prep Yes once in a while I need a wire brad or popsicle stick for a small project but that's nothing I have 3 kids to school and so anything that helps to save me time is a plusThird it uses real children's book favorites (ie Good Night Moon) as well as their own easy readers I love the mix because it keeps my children engaged in the material as well as making sure that they learn things in a logical sequence Plus I feel the addition of using 'real' books gives my children a boost to their reading confidence when we use them They love reading the books themselves that I had usually read to themFourth it's more than just just LA When we read Ferdinand we studied a little bit about Spain Today our book was about a dog and we studied a bit extra about dogs It's nothing that interferes with anything else we might be doing that day It's just a way to further interest my small impatient children and it works! Fifth and last--it's a bargain This is a whole year's worth of curriculum for that price I have friends who have used other much more costly programs ($200+) with sometimes similar results but certainly not better results I'm really glad that this program has as many levels as it does because we will using it well into the future

Great all-inclusive program
I have twin boys who struggled with reading. We tried all the usual books and things but nothing stuck with them. I tried this as a hope and they love it! The reading progress chart gets them excited to make progress. The interactive components (not fluff) is perfect for engaging them and helping me know if they are understanding. The handwriting is a bit old fashioned but other than that this has been great for us. If you have kids who wiggle and don't always like sitting still for lessons then this is perfect

The language arts curriculum we were using was advertised as "literature based" However it did not live up to our expectations and turned our child off of the subject of language arts We began to search for a literature based curriculum which taught language arts in a gentle engaging format Our search ended when we discovered "Learning Language Arts Through Literature" After previewing the samples on the Rainbow Resource website and speaking with Rainbow's consultant we ordered the curriculumI can not praise this curriculum enough! It utilizes choice selections from children's literature to teach language arts in a gentle fun engaging manner There are many stories and hands on activities throughout the curriculumThe teachers manual is a dream come true! It is so well organized you can literally pick it up the manual and begin teachingI give this curriculum an A+!

What exactly does this come with? Very unclear...

BEST ANSWER: I thought it was a little confusing, too. The Blue Program comes with the Teacher Book, Student workbook, Materials Packet, and student readers. The materials packet has the Head, Tummy and Toes cards, Vowel Letter Cards, Consonant Letter cards, Upper Case Letter cards, Sound/picture cards, Blend Letter Cards, Sight Word cards, and Letter Dice Cards (you cut them out and make dice). There are Green Short vowel readers, Yellow Bridge Readers and Purple Long vowel readers. What is not included are the classic books such as Make Way For Ducklings. They are all listed in the Read Aloud Library Rainbow Resource sells. We had some and bought the rest. You can also get them from the library, most you only need for one or 2 days at a time.

I know this wasn't part f the question, but e love the program. It is a very gentle language arts program. I was able to compare it recently to All About Reading and they are very similar style programs. That being said we will be continuing with LLATL since it has worked so well for us. I hope this all helps.
