                          What's in Level One?

   This is the first book in the Reading Logically reading program.

   Consonant sounds are introduced using alliteration and poems.

      The majority of the lessons teach the short vowel sounds,

 but there are also lessons on the "ee" sound and the "oo" sound.

                 Several consonant blends are introduced.

        Two Children's Poetry Books, Silly Little Poems,

        and Grandma's WigandGrandpa's Hat, are now available!

        Is your child ready for Level Two, New Adventures?

        Another Reading and Activity Book, More Great Beginnings, is now available!

This is the second page of Lesson One. Lesson One teaches the sound that "at" makes in combination with other letters. The words, "the," "and," and "on" are introduced in this lesson. There is much practice of the "at" sound, which helps "cement" this concept firmly in the student's mind.

Lesson Seventeen is filled with words that make the "oo" sound. Noon, food, too, stew, chew, boo hoo, do, mood, cool, and to, all give immediate practice in the skill taught in the lesson. In addition, several words ending in "g" help to reinforce previous lessons.

These poems are from the Just for Fun! section of the book. This section provides additional practice with many different activities. Crossword puzzles, synonyms and antonyms, alliteration, poems, and stories help to reinforce the lessons.

Lesson Fourteen gives practice with the long "e" sound, with the words bee, see, he, Lee, we, and she. There are also some words starting with "wh." (when and where. Lesson Fifteen gives more practice and exposes the student to more words, including green, meet, seen, and why.
