The file folder games are all in one book ready to be cut out and glued into file folders. They are not in color (which helps keep the cost of the program down) so you or your kids can color them. Each lesson adds in a fun new game to go along with the skills or letters the child learns. These games are a huge part of what makes this so much fun. The learning that takes place is hands-on and fun.
The Phonetic Farm is one thing you would have to replace for later children. It unfolds into a farm and stickers of the different phonics sounds taught. Each time we learn a new sound, we get to put on the sticker. It is such a fun thing to do~ my daughter loves it! It is also a great way to go back and review the sounds we have already learned.
Poetry: Learn a poem together~ practice learning the words & sounds from the poem they provide
Journal and Story Time: We keep a daily journal of things we are learning & doing in our school day. I write this but she likes to tell me what to write. We read a story- we’ve been doing Aesop’s Fables- and discuss the parts of the story (character, summary, plot, climax, etc.)
- Practice Time: This is when we work on the file games, writing practice, Phonetic Farm, and the letters and words we have been learning.
- Work Time: We work on the workbook pages
All of this is done together and takes 45 minutes to an hour to go through the lesson.
