Workbook for Round About Grade 1 (Alice and Jerry Basic Reading Program)

# 075673
There are instances in this workbook where the seatwork does not match the reader exactly. The practice is still at the level of the reader and not that disruptive, but can be a bit frustrating for the teacher. This is not something that can be changed with the publisher.

Category Description for Alice and Jerry Basic Reading Program:

This carefully structured reading program was first published in 1957 and retains its pre-politically correct flavor. Each unit is a series of stories, with multiple units in each book. New words are introduced in the “Presentation Units.” In the “Absorption Units” that follow, students read additional stories, reviewing and reinforcing words recently presented. New vocabulary is constantly practiced and strengthened. Grade 1 starts with four Preprimers which feature short sentences, easy words, and lots of delightful nostalgic illustrations. Rebus illustrations (small drawings that substitute for words too difficult for a beginning reader) are incorporated. Grade 1 Semester 2 and Grades 2-3 (with 3 Readers each) follow a pattern. For each grade level, the first reader can be used for: vocabulary review; independent reading; to challenge average readers; or to build up proficiency. The second reader presents most of the new vocabulary. The third reader applies vocabulary to new content, staying in the reading level. The Fourth Reader, Singing Wheels, is about pioneer life. Stories in the Fifth Reader, Engine Whistles, highlight trans¬portation and inventions. Workbooks provide story recall questions, word recognition, and handwriting practice in the early grades but transition into reading skill development with some basic phonics reinforcement. There are instances where the workbooks and the readers seem to be misaligned, however; the concepts and copywork are at the same level as the readers even with the mismatches. We have to chalk this up to the charm of a vintage reproduction as it is something that cannot be changed. It doesn't take away from the style of teaching. TEs (where available) provide lesson plans and answers in early grades. Workbooks without TEs have some teacher instructions but no answers.
