An Amish reading program which portrays a lifestyle in which people cherish Christian traits, and in which children gain insights into how to behave! Families are large and stories are centered around the family and farm. The stories are interesting to children if our kids are any indicator! One of my favorites is a story from First Steps in which little Rachel discovers, after attempting to help mother shell peas, that watching baby Miriam really is a good way to help mother with meal preparations!
Although many of our customers use the readers as a standalone, we carry the complete reading program, including teacher's manuals, workbooks, and tests or quizzes where available. Instruction is plain and effective, with minimalistic black and white illustrations, which makes this series affordable and user-friendly. Please note that the Teacher's Manuals are necessary for Before We Read, First Steps, and Learning Through Sounds 1 and 2.
Package content varies. Each package includes the Student Text, Student Workbook, and Workbook Teacher Manual. Where available, packages also include the Tests and Test Answer Sheet and/or Quizzes and Answer Sheet. While these tests and answers are not part of the original Amish reading program, they were created to meet the needs of homeschooling parents outside the Amish classroom. Flashcards are included in the Grade 1 package. See individual packages for more information. Consumables are not reproducible, so each student will need his/her own workbook, tests, and quizzes.
Packages include the student text, student workbook, teacher edition of the workbook, test, and the test answer sheet.
