Home School Kit – Basic Grade 1
The Basic version of the kit contains the teacher handbook, student text, verticle position guides, two triangular pencils.
The teacher handbook provides a complete lesson plan outline designed to teach letter building process for the American standard manuscript alphabet along with fluent, rhythmic movement. Student text provides color/rhythm movement models and models for applying forms to words as they are mastered. Position guides help with learning to use writing position and the triangular pencil aids in development of a correct, relaxed grip.
The student learns to move in time to his or her voice by fingertracing the color/rhythm models. Air writing in time to the chanted action words improves timing and gross patterns. Learning to move with the voice enhances internalization for transfer of learning to applied work. This goal also allows the teacher to know what kind of movement the student is practicing. The student cannot chant aloud if drawing visually.
Our Basic Kit design includes grade specific items.
Included in our Complete Kit is the Animated Letter Cards USB Flash Drive, which serves all levels. By popular request, we created the Complete Kits to include the Flash Drive (because it is so much easier to order a kit than to select individual items from various product categories). We have created two versions to better meet your needs and improve convenience.
