Learning Language Arts through Literature, Blue Book: Student Activity Book (Consumable)
This very good learn-to-read program includes professional graphics and slick learning activities: word wheels, stick puppets, flip books, letter dice, worksheets, and more. The Teacher’s Manuals are great for both beginning and veteran teachers as all lesson plans are laid out clearly with materials needed listed, questions you are to ask scripted, teacher dialogue and student answers included, and activities described in detail. No preparation is needed—you just read the Teacher’s Manual step-by-step as you teach. Skills assessments (tests) help you know what your student needs to work on. This program contains everything you need to teach reading, spelling, grammar, an easy form of italic handwriting, phonics, higher-order thinking skills, and creative writing.

Great Follow Up to "Language and Thinking for Children" by Dr. Ruth BeechickThe language arts curriculum we were using was advertised as "literature based." However it did not live up to our expectations and turned our child off of the subject of language arts. We began to search for a literature based curriculum which taught language arts in a gentle, engaging format. Our search ended when we discovered "Learning Language Arts Through Literature." After previewing the samples on the Rainbow Resource website and speaking with Rainbow's consultant we ordered the curriculum. I can not praise this curriculum enough! It utilizes choice selections from children's literature to teach language arts in a gentle, fun, engaging manner. There are many stories and hands on activities throughout the curriculum. The teachers manual is a dream come true! It is so well organized you can literally pick it up the manual and begin teaching. I give this curriculum an A+!
