Product Description:

This particular composition book is used as a spelling notebook for Spell to Write and Read. Includes 50 wide-ruled sheets (3/8") and has a sturdy cardstock cover. Learning Logs are used as an ongoing record of spelling words and sentences.

Publisher Description:

We are delighted to announce a tailored replacement for the standard blank black composition notebook. The Learning Log is one of the most important pieces in the "Spell to Write and Read" approach. The students build their own "text book" for logging in what they are learning each year. Now we have made building the book for students 3rd grade and up more rewarding and less stressful. To build the reference pages, the teacher no longer has to give instructions for when to fold, title, or number pages.

The new log has space to cover all the concepts once captured in the stock blank notebooks. The now expanded reference section has 39 pages. It adds important concepts: 1) Spelling Rules: collection of ck, dge, and ff, ll, ss words. 2) Grammar: subject/object pronouns, subject/verb agreement (showing where verbs sometimes follow patterns similar to the plural rule). 3) Derivative Work: Greek and Latin numbers, plus Greek and Latin roots, prefixes, suffixes. 4) Vocabulary: heteronyms.

Category Description for SPELLING PAPER / TABLETS:

We always used steno notebooks for spelling when I was young, creating new columns when we'd get to the bottom of the page. This idea is better! Each package of paper contains 500 sheets of white, wide ruled paper, measuring 4" x 11"; perfect for your long spelling lists.

I am a private tutor for K-2 and have been making my own notebooks for many years. I was amazed, and thrilled, to recently find this Learning log! It saves me hours of work and has nearly everything that I included in mine This notebook has larger pages than the standard composition notebooks. Also the pages are much heavier, no more gluing pages together so the writing doesn't show through. There are lots blank lined pages in the back to allow of word list . Note: wide ruled

I love the black learning log. It helps you stay organized and allows the child to start taking notes based on the phonogram cards.

The Learning Logs are the simplest way to work through the SWR program. This will be our third year using these logs for our spelling time.

This English is very hands on for the parents, but well worth it. It teaches mastery which has made a huge improvement with my daughter who struggles with dyslexia.

Does this have a teacher's guide?
A shopper on Jan 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: There is an extremely thick book/guide to learn this curriculum. It is very advanced. I have never found this curriculum in the least bit helpful. I have been homeschooling for 3 and a half years. I think this might be best suited to English as a Second Language students, or highly experienced homeschool moms that have 10,000 hours experience and all the time in the world to learn this specific way to teach.
Why are there 40 spaces per spelling list page in the black book? Are we supposed to have 2 spelling lists per page?
A shopper on Sep 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we do 2 spelling list per page and use this learning log for multiple years. The lines get smaller and become simply 1 line per line of text, verses the 3 line handwriting sheet is the first learning log. Also, it is nice at the beginning of the year to review spelling rule pages created earlier, rather than re-creating them every year. We keep collecting words like number words. homophones, complex homophones on the same pages over the years.

If you do Spell to Write & Read, Get the Learning Log!
If you are using the Spell to Write & Read curriculum it is worth your sanity to get the pre-formatted learning log. You need one for the teacher and one for the student (the teacher can reuse the same one from year to year).
This curriculum is very detailed and regimented, but once I got on top of how to use it, I love it. I have tried a different curriculum, but came quickly back to this one because this one teaches the kids (and me) how spelling works (I am only using the spelling portion) and gives me tools to deal with words that I do not already know. In addition to that, my kids have advanced amazingly in their spelling and are spelling way above grade level.

Thank you, Daddy!
When we had the option of using a $.99 blank composition notebook or the $12 formatted version shown here for the SWR program, I was unsure of whether or not it would be worth the money to buy the formatted one. Now, when we open the book to start a new page, the kids regularly yell, "Thank you, Daddy!" to my husband. The amount of work, time, and effort it takes to format the blank pages is quite overwhelming. We are thankful each day that my dear hubby works hard to provide these extras for us! Although the curriculum clearly details how to do it, it is well worth the money to not have to struggle with the ruler and pen and mistakes and precision it takes to format the blank pages by hand. I can't even imagine the tears that have been averted! Thank you for offering this product!
