This Language Arts Guide
The “Paragraph to Pages” guide is an eighteen week program. This guide is for students ready to read short paragraphs. For students that have used our “Syllables to Sentences” program the “Paragraphs to Pages” guide continues to prepare students for short chapter books in the following year.
This guide pulls together several great resources. What is so great is that the program is simple to use. The student will be working out of two workbooks, flashcards, and an activity pack. This guide schedules: reading, reading comprehension, handwriting, spelling, phonics, sight word practice, spelling activities and games, phonics activities and games, and simple vocabulary. Teaching notes and instructions on how-to-use are included in this guide along with answer keys for the workbooks included in this package. Alternate game ideas using the “Hands-On” Phonics Pack are also added to this guide along with game boards for more fun. Using the hands-on games and flashcards along with the highly interactive write-in readers your student will quickly progress in their ability to read and comprehend what they are reading through this fun program. NOTE: This resource is printed in black and white. The ebook version of this resource will be in color or contain color pages.
Students will love our write-in readers! This is the first of our early reading programs to schedule our write-in readers. Students will use this resource to progress in their reading while using our coordinating phonics worksheets. These write-in readers also have pages on phonics, spelling, vocabulary, sight words, and fun reading comprehension activities. The reading passages follow the story of two furry critters Mac and Nip and their adventures on Pine Nut Street. These phonetically focused stories engage student and enable them to decode more words and expand their vocabulary. Further information on these great readers, “Play on Pine Nut Street” Student Book and “Tricks in the Thicket” Student Book, can be seen on their separate pages.
How to Use Our Flexible Early LA Programs
Both of these guides, “Syllables to Sentences” guide and “Paragraphs to Pages,” have been arranged in an eighteen week format to provide more flexibility for parents teaching their students to read. All students progress at different rates through the process of learning to read. Some require more time on certain letters, phonograms, or concepts as they struggle with one over another. In many cases students learn to read very rapidly and quickly progress through the small stages. We feel that creating two separate language arts programs make it very easy for the parents of any early reader to use these guides in the best way possible for their student. These eighteen week language arts programs can be done on schedule; completed together in one school year. Or, if your student needs to review a certain concept then feel free to spend time on it and complete the two programs over the course of a calendar year.
