Zaner Bloser
Handwriting 5

The Zaner-Bloser Handwriting offers easy step-by-step instruction and self-evaluation for manuscript handwriting review and transition to cursive, provides meaningful practice and application, and engages students with colorful, fun activities.

Spelling You See Level F:
Ancient Achievements

The Spelling You See methodology employs chunking (identifying and color-marking the letter combinations) in a real-life informative passage to identify the spelling rules in words and then copywork (first) and dictation (follow-up) to solidify the word’s visual picture and send it to long-term memory. It works! With SYS, you can totally avoid the learned-by-Friday, forgotten-by-Monday nature of weekly spelling list programs; there are no weekly spelling lists or tests

Soaring with Spelling 5

Soaring with Spelling and Vocabulary is a daily spelling program that comes in eight grade levels of spelling/vocabulary work. Other than having to do the pre and post test with your student, Soaring with Spelling is set up for your student to learn independently

Students learn spelling skills based on phonics through unique, cross-curricular reading passages, practice, and high-interest writing activities. Packed with flexible lessons, motivating activities, including fun riddles and puzzles, this dynamic program leads students to spelling success!

All About Spelling 5

All About Spelling takes a multisensory approach so that the student can be successful in spelling regardless of his/her particular learning style. The program can be customized for each student, with daily review of concepts the individual needs to cover.

Growing with Grammar 5

The Growing with Grammar series is an intensive grammar program for the elementary grades that includes sentence diagramming, parts of speech, sentence structure and so much more.

Editor in Chief Beginning 2

These workbooks were designed to be an introduction to the Editor in Chief series. Students first review the rules of grammar and mechanics by answering multiple-choice questions. They then learn to apply these rules by editing stories in a variety of formats. Units cover capitalization, punctuation, run-ons and fragments, dialogue, friendly letters, grammar, usage, and spelling. The last unit combines different types of errors into single exercises to review all of the skills simultaneously.

Word Roots Level 1

Word Roots teaches students the meanings of Latin and Greek prefixes, roots, and suffixes commonly used in English. Learning word elements dramatically improves spelling and the ability to decode unfamiliar words. Word Roots will add hundreds of words to your students’ vocabulary and greater depth to their thinking and writing.

Reading Detective A1

Thinking Press has tackled reading comprehension and critical thinking in this popular series. Reading and thinking should go hand in hand, but sometimes those skills need to be developed a little more. These excellent books use excerpts from award-winning authors, original fiction in a variety of genres and an assortment of nonfiction articles covering a broad array of topics and subject areas. Reading skills honed in the series include: comparison/contrast; distinguishing cause and effect; distinguishing fact and opinion; drawing conclusions; finding supporting details; identifying main idea; making inferences; making generalizations; making predictions; reading for details and information; sequencing; using tables, diagrams, and illustrations; recognizing analogies; predicting outcomes.

The Language

A lighter, more enjoyable approach than your typical grammar lesson. Every lesson begins with a sentence that breaks the rule for that lesson, resulting in a humorous sentence, to show students what happens when you don’t follow the language rules. Then, by applying the rule, the same sentence is written correctly. Guided activities follow to give the student practice at applying the rule.

D'nealian Handwriting 5

The D’Nealian handwriting method seeks to make the transition from manuscript to cursive easier by adding a slant to the manuscript print and more similarity in the letter strokes between manuscript and cursive with less flourishes in general. Lessons typically include a review of letter formation, practice, review, evaluation, and editing. All of the grade level worktexts are consumable and in full color.

Handwriting Skills
Simplified E

Each page has a specific focus, concentrating on pencil position, posture, types of strokes, spacing, legibility and speed. Practice is always targeted, even at the highest level, which includes practice of common word beginnings and endings. Instruction is limited but adequate. Books A and B teach and practice printing. Book C transitions to cursive. And books D, E and F work on refining and maintaining cursive handwriting. The style is traditional, a simplified Zaner-Bloser method.

Above all else, we love kids. Their individuality, their abilities, their passions. Children are amazing people and we consider ourselves lucky to work with them everyday.
