Each lesson in the Level 1 Course Book will direct you to work on these beautiful and fun Reading Booster Cards and/or Books. The child will go through the Cards and Books at his or her own pace. Once a card is mastered, your child selects a sticker from the sticker sheets in the back and places it on the “Mastered” circle at the bottom of the card.

Each card focuses on a certain phonics principle or a group of first grade sight words. Review cards are placed intermittently throughout the cards. These Reading Booster Cards will also tell you when to read the Reading Booster Books. These adorable and fascinating books correlate directly with each card.

Because the Reading Booster B Cards include consumable stickers and has maze pages that are consumable, they may not be reusable for your family. You may choose to purchase a set for each child completing the course.

Handwriting Level 1 is for children in first grade and focuses on the correct print formation of letters and numbers. This course introduces 2–3 new letters at a time, going in the order of the most used letters, and introduces short words and sentences near the end. Text size is reduced halfway through the course as the child gains the motor skills for smaller print. 

The Good and the Beautiful handwriting courses include images, artwork, poetry, Bible verses, and quotes that support high character, faith, nature, and creativity. Drawing activities are incorporated throughout the course to make handwriting more enjoyable and increase fine motor skills. This workbook includes 100 sheets, which is 3–4 sheets per week for an average school year.
