Essentials 2nd Edition by Logic of English is flashy. I'm seldom seduced by bright pretty colors in book form, but this program is pretty. The flash cards, game cards, rule cards and pamphlets are NICE! It is so flexible too. Each aspect of this program works for multiple levels, making it wonderful for large families. Essentials covers phonics, vocabulary, spelling, grammar & basic composition taught in a logical approach to encourage critical thinking. It's fully scripted for new teachers, but practically limitless in possibilities for creative teachers. We also received an eReading Book & teacher's guide.
