Doodling Dragons: An ABC Book of Sounds
Language arts programs listed in this section cover most areas of language arts (reading/literature, writing, grammar, spelling and handwriting) in one curriculum, although some skill areas may be covered with less intensity than a focused, stand-alone course.
Read aloud with your child and learn the sounds made by each letter or phonogram! Emphasize the sounds, not the letter names as you read. For example, did you know an A makes three sounds and a Y makes four? This is introduced in Doodling Dragons. Colorful pages have the letter/phonogram on the left side and several words that include the sound on the right. Point to the phonogram as you say the sound, asking the child to repeat after you. The phonograms are identified with a symbol above the letter. You can ask the child to match the phonograms and even think of other words with those sounds in them. Doodling Dragons covers all sounds made by letters A-Z and correlates with Level A of the Logic of English Foundations program. Whistling Whales introduces 21 phonograms covered in Level B of the program and Knitting Knights covers 27 more phonograms studied in Level C.Build an awareness of sounds as you enjoy the often silly illustrations: emus emailing, hugging hedgehogs, jittery jellyfish, puppy's paws and wishful wolves wearing wigs! Hardcover, 46-60 pgs each. ~ Sara
