The second book in theMiles and Jaxseries, Miles and Jax: Master Plannersprovides phonics-controlled readingtexts usedthe second half of Foundations C.
Kids will love reading about Miles and Jax! Their engaging stories disguise the fact that these are actually phonics readers, carefully designed so that students using Logic of English®Foundationscan sound out every word, even those commonly taught as sight words. Building on just a few concepts at a time, these readers help kids cross that magic boundary where reading becomes more fun than work!
This book presents fourmorestories about this adventurous pair of friends. Providing additional reading practice alongside the Foundations C Readers, Miles and Jax: Master Planners uses new reading and phonics concepts introduced in Foundations C like the phonograms EY, DGE, EW, and AU, why lazy O sometimes says /u/, the rule "C always softens to /s/ before E, I, or Y," and several more reasons for a silent E.
As they read, students continue to practice applying the phonogram sounds and spelling rules they learned earlier in Foundations, building fluency with these tools as they read sentences, short paragraphs, and multi-syllable words.
