I think that it is an easy statement to say that one of my favorite product reviews that I have been introduced to through the blessing of participating in the TOS Crew is from Logic of English ~ (https://www.logicofenglish.com/) and today that blessings has continued in the form of the latest level of their primary school program in Foundations Level D. Link back to Foundations A and you can read my extremely verbose post on our original thoughts about LOE Foundations. We still love “Dragon Phonics”! When we started using LOE Foundations, I got the full kit including the supplemental Doodling Dragons book and iOS phonogram app. You can read more about those in my previous post. For the purposes of this review, I was blessed to receive what is knowing as the Continuing package which included the Level D Teacher’s Guide, Student Workbook, Flash Cards, and more.

Throughout the last few years as I’ve learned more and more about the various options of homeschool companies I have often had my eye on products from The Critical Thinking Co. ~ (http://www.CriticalThinking.com/) and placing many things on my wishlist.

We were all very excited and the intent was to refresh with AppleBlossom (age 6) and start the basics with OrangeBlossom (age 4). We spent time in the book about 3-4 times per week.

Today, I get to share with you a new treasure to our family in our homeschool curriculum and I’m delighted to review this new-to-me program that I definitely want to stick with on further levels in the Logic of English ~ (http://www.LogicofEnglish.com). I was granted the blessing to obtain and use Foundations, Level A as well as a set of reusable resources, and the iOS Doodling Dragons App. I was curious about the curriculum, but had no idea the delight that we were in for on this adventure!
Logic of English Review
The Logic of English: Foundations program is recommended for ages 4 to 7 and is designed to easily be used in schools, homeschool settings, older struggling readers, and English Language Learners. I’m certain it would make a good addition to a co-op setting. The Level A is for the beginning reader and opens the world of reading through basic phonogram knowledge, beginning handwriting skills, short vowel and consonant blends decoding.
