This progress chart will explain the suggested pathway to be taken when using these courses and the best place to start depending on the age and level of the student.
Using poetry, the reading portion of the Primary Arts of Language teaches phonics and whole words. Students are introduced to letters through letter stories and discover the vowel and consonant pairs that help us read. Daily games played during Activity Time reinforce the phonetic concepts so that a student can know them completely.
The Primary Arts of Language (PAL) Reading and Writing programs are intended for use concurrently unless your child is already reading well.
Note:Primary Arts of Language: Writing Complete Package, which is divided into three parts: printing, copy work, and composition, should be used concurrently with Primary Arts of Language: Reading Complete Package unless your child is already reading. Then you can use these lessons independently. Spelling is included throughout the course. If your child is too young for printing, you can still go through the writing portion of the lessons orally until he is ready while foccusing more on the reading portion to start with.
