In the meantime, I am trying to reestablish our homeschool rhythm and already thinking about my plans for next year and the changes I want to make.
If you are a fellow homeschooling mom, you are probably also thinking ahead to next year, so I want to tell you about my experience with the Logic of English Essentials program. Logic of English is fairly new to the homeschooling scene. In scanning the breakout sessions, one session title really jumped out at me.
It was about Nerf Guns and teaching kinestheic learners. Since I love play-based learning and have two very energetic boys, this session was at the top of my list. I am so glad that I went because it was there that I first heard Denise Eide speak about her fabulous Logic of English program.
Logic of English teaches reading, spelling, grammar, vocabulary, and handwriting in a fun and engaging way. The curriculum is broken down into two series: When I was in school, English was not one of my favorite subjects because I felt that so many aspects of English grammar were vague and ambiguous as opposed to the concrete concepts of math and science.
I used Foundations A through D with Jack and it was one of his favorite parts of our day. I am happy to say that he is now a great reader and speller with beautiful cursive handwriting. Well, most of the time. He is an 8 year old boy after all. It is such a fun way for them to learn and review their phonograms and I love that this is something they can do together even though Aidan is in Kindergarten using Foundations and Jack is in 2nd grade using Essentials.
Around this time last year, Jack began Foundations D, the last book of the series for ages I knew Logic of English offered the Essentials curriculum for ages 8 and up, but it looked like it was just a repeat of what we had already learned in Foundations, only targeted toward older children who were struggling in Language Arts.
I was still in this place of uncertaintly when Logic of English contacted me to see if I would be interested in reviewing the Essentials curriculum. Jack has now been using Essentials for several months and I am ready to share my thoughts, but first a few disclaimers.
Although I looked at other Language Arts programs before we began homeschooling, Logic of English stood out as my favorite and it is the only Language Arts curriculum I have ever used. Although I purchased the complete set of Foundations A through D, Essentials 2nd Edition Volume 1 was offered to me for free in exchange for an honest review.
I love Logic of English so much that I have been an affiliate for a while now, which simply means if you make a purchase after clicking over from my blog, I will receive a commission.
In a way, Essentials does repeat much of what was taught in Foundations. But it repeats it in a way that reinforces those basic spelling and grammar rules we learned in Foundations and then builds on those basics with customizable reading, spelling, grammar, and vocabulary lessons.
The great thing about Essentials is that each lesson is broken down into 5 days, and each day is completely written out for you and color-coded for Levels A, B, and C.
The lessons are so easy to teach and if you have the complete set, you will have everything you need to make the lessons fun and engaging with no prep work required. This set comes with:A useful analysis of the themes of the short story: Village People by Bessie Head.
Themes covered - poverty, conflict, kindness, struggle, acceptance, desperation and connection. Of all the vaccines out there, it’s hard for me to decide which among them antivaccine activists fear and detest the most. Sure, there’s the MMR vaccine, the original granddaddy bete noire, demonized so successfully by Andrew Wakefield as causing autism based on some of the flimsiest evidence ever, evidence later shown to be fraudulent.

ABSTRACT. A one-size-fits-all curriculum cannot address the issues faced by rural multigrade teachers and learners. In South Africa, despite government efforts to relieve adversity, poverty in rural areas is still rife and poor education still fails to lift people out of it (Joubert ).
