Curriculum Overview

Logic of English is a very thorough language program that uses a multi-sensory approach to reading. The way Activities for Learning, Inc. teach phonograms is unique, but teaches critical thinking rather than just listing rules and exceptions.

The curriculum is teacher- and kid-friendly with quite a few fun activities. Logic of English can be used in a cooperative setting easily provided all children are using the same curriculum. There are plenty of suggestions in how to adapt the curriculum for a classroom setting.

Pros:

> Parent, tutor, child friendly with clear instructions and visually pleasing.
> Fun, engaging and with excellent variety of activities
> Unique approach to learning phonograms that works well
> Primarily open-and-go; sometimes a quick scan is necessary to cut out extra items if too lengthy
> Includes songs, phonogram cards, games
> Cursive or manuscript writing options
> Online version is available
> Easy to divide lessons if necessary, due to the attention of the child
> Additional reading and practice suggestions

Cons:

> Possibly difficult to jump into if you had a different approach or program before
> Some of the lessons could be too long in length and should be split – requires some preparation
> Manipulatives cost extra and are a value added, but extra expense
