Giveaway: Logic of English Foundations Set A ($156 Value!)

Logic of English Foundations

This giveaway is now closed! The winner is Cassandra (felixcassandrakellogg@…)!

I’ve been raving about the Logic of English curriculum — both the Essentials program for elementary students and the Rhythm of Handwriting for cursive — since I met the founder, Denise Eide, at the Allume conference almost 18 months ago, and both programs continue to be among my favorites of all of our curriculum.

Although we’ve always taught reading with the Explode the Code workbooks, I’ve become increasingly intrigued by the Logic of English Foundations program, which teaches reading and handwriting together, and they were kind enough to send me the first set {Foundations A} so that I could review it and see if it would be a good fit for our up-and-coming kindergartener in the fall.

I’m not sure why I’m surprised that I really, really like the program — given how I feel about everything else I’ve used from them — but it did catch me by surprise, and now I’m actually anxious to start more formal schooling with her in a few months!

While one of my favorite aspects of this program is that it combines cursive handwriting with learning phonics, I also love that all of Logic of English’s curriculum starts with foundational building blocks so that kids are really learning from the ground up. In Foundations A, that means Sidney will learn how sounds are formed in her mouth (with her mouth open or closed, by voicing or blowing air, etc.), how to blend and segment words auditorily, and the sound and how to write all 26 lowercase letters, and then she’ll begin sounding out words.

{There’s also a manuscript version if that is your preference, although I’m becoming more and more convinced of the value of teaching cursive first.}
