Category Description for LLATL Red Program (3rd Ed.):

Organized around quality childrens literature, this program covers phonics, reading, spelling, grammar, vocabulary, handwriting, and higher-order reasoning. Phonics instruction is systematic, introducing a few sounds at a time and providing opportunities to read a "real" book. The literature component emphasizes the joy of reading wonderful books. The wide variety of activities appeals to all learning styles. Handwriting method is unique to the program. The Teacher Book provides 36 step-by-step lessons, answers, and periodic assessments; no teacher prep needed. The Student Book is consumable. Well-known childrens literature from the Read-Aloud Library (an integral part of the program) is suggested with each weekly lesson.

The Red Program (1-2) covers intermediate and advanced phonics (with more emphasis placed on poetry, sentence structure, grammar and writing). Red Program Set includes Teacher Book, Student Book and six Readers.

E-book versions of the Red Program Teacher Book, the Student Book and Readers are now available. All content from the hardcopy products are available as pdf files for download. In 1-2 business days after order is processed, the customer will be sent an email with information on how to access the files, and will then have 14 days to download the material. Once downloaded, they never expire from the customer’s computer and can be read and printed from any device.




"Its just common sense!" Yes, everything about this program is common sense. A very complete program organized around quality children's literature and covering phonics, reading, spelling, grammar, vocabulary, handwriting, and higher-order reasoning. Phonics instruction is systematic, introducing a few sounds at a time and providing opportunities to read a "real" (small story book) book which uses those sounds. The literature component (carefully selected children's favorites) reminds students that the reason for all the hard work in phonics is the joy of reading wonderful books. And woven through both of these elements is comprehensive instruction in all aspects of language arts. Relying heavily on Ruth Beechick's principles for teaching reading (including her letter dice activities), the program includes a wide variety of activities appealing to all learning styles.

The current 3rd edition features updated covers and clearer day-by-day instruction; there are also updates throughout the series to reflect changes in how research is conducted. Also, there is clearer direction for making personalized spelling lists. Some lessons have been "switched-out" to give students exposure to more classic literature. Since the original series was written over several years by two different authors, this 3rd edition has been tweaked to make it more consistent. A few out-of-print books have been replaced as well.

The Teacher Book is a homeschooler's dream; all the work has been done for you, taking you step-by-step through the 36-week/36 Lesson program. The Lessons are grouped into "Parts" and each is divided into five days of detailed instructions. New skills are listed for each lesson and necessary supplies are included at the beginning. There is virtually no teacher preparation needed; you teach as you read. All answers are provided within the lesson. Examples and diagrams are user-friendly including the easy-to-follow references to the Student Book. Periodic assessments are provided to help you determine your childs readiness for the next "Part." The Student Book contains the materials (except for household and school supplies) needed for cut-and-paste, word wheels, flip books, picture sequencing, story-telling puppets, and handwriting pages. The comfortable, natural handwriting method that isnt exactly traditional, modern, or italic was developed by the authors. This handwriting instruction is coordinated with the phonics and includes pages for children to carefully complete and display or give as gifts. The Student Book is consumable with perforated pages. Even the back cover is put to good use providing the miniature book covers to be added to the personal reading chart that marks the childs progress. Phonics concepts are reinforced in separate beginning Readers. They are small-sized for little hands and include black-and-white illustrations. Stories are engaging which is a good thing since the weeks learning activities are built around them. The student uses puppets to retell the stories, completes sequencing activities with a series of reader-related events, and answers comprehension questions. One interesting aspect of the teacher-student interaction concerning these readers is that the weeks lesson starts off with the teacher reading either the small book (Blue) or a part of a reader (Red) to the child. After several lessons thoroughly covering the new phonics concepts and practice reading parts of the story, the student concludes the week with the successful reading of the same reading selection. This is an effective variation of the typical approach because the goal of reading the book is always before the student. The Materials Packet (Blue Program only) is a useful collection of color-coded letter and word cards for learning and review along with cards used for reinforcement games and, of course, the letter dice (to be assembled from cardstock patterns). While this part of the program is not exactly consumable - you could use the various components again - the components do get a workout. If you are expecting to use the program with another child, you'll want to save these items, possibly laminating them. However, we sell additional Material Packets as well as Student Books and Reader Sets so you can easily use the program with a second student. Well-known children's literature (Read-Aloud Library) is suggested each week, so at the same time your child is learning phonics, he is also learning other important reading skills such as literal recall, comprehension, predicting outcome, and drawing conclusions. These books are an integral part of the program and the Student Activity Book relies on them. Although usually available at the local library, for your convenience we also sell them. ~ Janice

I wanted to have a literature based program that I could then build on.
Risa R on Aug 18, 2020
I'm looking forward to home schooling my daughter using fiction and nonfiction texts as our guide. My hope is that an in-depth study of the actual literature will buoy her understanding of all other aspects of language arts.

It is the next level in the language arts curriculum that we use. I like Learning Language Arts Through Literature because it covers all of language arts in a way that is practical and easy to use.

I love that it has an approach that does teach things but in small pieces. This helps my daughter understand the lessons.

This curriculum is wonderful. It covers a multitude of English skills as well as great literature. I have used LLATL with all of my children.

Do I need to purchase anything else in addition to this set?
A shopper on Apr 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, not really. For a beginning writer you might want level appropriate lined paper, or make copies of the lined papers in the book. This curriculum is all you will need for language arts at this level.
Does this program include anything religious?
A shopper on Sep 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have only done 5 weeks of daily lessons with my daughter. There was one lesson that utilizes the story of David and Goliath. With that being said if you would like to avoid the religious aspect I believe it can be avoided by simply replacing the story with another story you are more comfortable with. I flipped through the lessons and the stories and books provided and believe it the only the one lesson (lesson 2) that this is true. I hope that this helps. The program has a great variety of literature in the lessons.

Great Program!
We are new to homeschooling and have been using the program for about a month and so far the children and I love it! It is broken out for a 5 day week, so it's easy to plan. The 5th day has a review for the week so that you can see if there are any areas your child needs more work on. It combines literature with the learning which works great for my kids because they love to read and working with a literary work makes it feel less like "school" to them. I highly recommend this program for children who aren't super receptive to learning straight grammar principles, but prefer to learn in application.

Love it!
We are on week 4 of this curriculum with my second grader. I absolutely love it. Hes being introduced to a wide variety of literature, poetry, stories. Each day is something new and there are hands-on activities and extras that are fun. My son is a reluctant writer. He can write well, but just doesn't want to. The writing is spread out, giving him practice but not tedious or long. Its made writing, reading, spelling and grammar very enjoyable for both of us!

Great curriculum
After being in public school K and 1st grade my DS who is dyslexic STRUGGLED with reading, writing and spelling. He hated all 3 because he couldn't understand the rules. For 2nd grade I took matters into my own hands and decided to homeschool. This was the only curriculum we used for Language Arts, I didn't want to overwhelm him so no other workbooks were used. In just months he began to read, and show huge interest in writing. We successful finished 2nd grade, he scored 100% on every Assessment in the LLATL book and now two months into summer break he is still showing interest in reading books and writes his own mini story books all the time. Thank you to the authors for creating such a wonderful curriculum for a child and easy for parent to teach. The readers were fantastic he loved every single one of them and couldn't wait till we would read a new story, also the content is great, with great moral, Christian based. We LOVED it, we will definitely be ordering the yellow book for 3rd grade.
