Advanced Phonograms

The seventy-four basic phonograms are commonly found in English. They are encountered frequently during reading and spelling either because they are used to spell a large number of English words or because they are used in high frequency words. In contrast an advanced phonogram is not commonly used in the language. For example: the phonogram PN is found in Greek-based words such as pneumonia and pnuematic. Since these phonograms are used in advanced vocabulary or infrequently, in Logic of English curriculum they have been termed Advanced and are therefore categorized for learning at a later stage.

Left-Handed Mom

 

 

A Guest Blog from Mom and LOE user MaryEllen Beattie:

As a left-handed mom, it was bringing back bad memories of my school days as I watched my left-handed daughter write. She was struggling to hover over the whiteboard in an attempt to not smear the marker with her hand. I could feel her frustration at not being able to form her letters neatly from that position.

Using and Organizing LOE Flash Cards

Guest blog post by Lori Archer. Lori is a homeschool parent and former classroom teacher, who uses both Essentials and Foundations.

The Logic of English is a brilliant and fun language arts program. LOE effectively and efficiently integrates spelling, grammar, phonics, and writing. And, Logic of English integrates lots of cards (LOTS of cards!): phonogram cards, spelling rule cards, game cards, and this is if you are just doing Essentials. Add in Foundations and you add in more cards. The cards are what make practice and reinforcement engaging for the children, but they can prove to be an organizational dilemma for the instructor.
