LLATL Blue Program (3rd Ed.)
Organized around quality childrens literature, this program covers phonics, reading, spelling, grammar, vocabulary, handwriting, and higher-order reasoning. Phonics instruction is systematic, introducing a few sounds at a time and providing opportunities to read a "real" book. The literature component emphasizes the joy of reading wonderful books. The wide variety of activities appeals to all learning styles. Handwriting method is unique to the program. The Teacher Book provides 36 step-by-step lessons, answers, and periodic assessments; no teacher prep needed. The Student Book is consumable. Well-known childrens literature from the Read-Aloud Library (an integral part of the program) is suggested with each weekly lesson.
The Blue Program (K-1) covers beginning and intermediate phonics. Blue Program Set includes Teacher Book, Student Book, three sets of Readers, and Materials Packet. Materials Packet is non-consumable and contains letter/word cards and cardstock letter dice.
