The Logic of English-Lesson 2

The Logic of English (a review item) is so organized that it’s a snap to teach. I love it. It’s simple and shall I say logical. It works with my teaching style too which is structure. I need structure.

Today took a bit longer. It took about 40 minutes to get through Part 1: Phonics and Part 2: Spelling. This included us playing Bingo as well. I probably could have skipped the Bingo game but I want the children to enjoy learning and include the fun stuff as well.

Part 3: Grammar, dictation, composition, and vocabulary took another 30 minutes. I didn’t get to the composition or vocab. though

First I gathered any spelling and phonogram cards, preprinted the workbook pages, had my apple cider vinegar water ready, and I was all set to teach.

Caleb likes to use a pen. Here they had to copy and say the new phonograms five times.

My kids write so much neater in cursive.

My three boys (Caleb, Brent, and Ethan) know their phonograms well enough for us to skip the games but I knew the boys would enjoy playing Bingo and they did. Ethan was the winner!

Here Ethan and his brothers are completing the grammar portion of the program. Today’s new grammar concept was adjectives.

They had to identify the nouns and change the nouns into plural form.

Caleb’s work. I didn’t get a picture of Caleb only his hand. I love hand shots. Not sure why but I do.

I know we are only on lesson two but I’m totally loving this program. I like it more than Phonics Road and All About Spelling. And you regular readers know how much I LOVED using Phonics Road with Caleb and Brent a few years back.

My goal with Caleb, Brent, and Ethan, is to complete The Logic of English before school starts but I don’t think that’s going to happen so I’m trying to figure out how to finish it. I know once we start school in September my/our day is going to be full using Memoria Press and staying on schedule (going to try anyway) but I know they need to complete Logic of English to become better spellers and readers. I’ll figure out something. I might hold off on starting Memoria Press.

I’m hoping to start Lance next week using The Logic of English. The only reason I haven’t started him is because of his writing so I’m going to have to go much slower with him. I really wanted to have Lance done by the middle of September though because his Memoria Press program comes with the last part of Classical Phonics. I wanted him to get a head start with that but we’ll see.
