The Workbooks provide all the needed teacher preparation for each level making the program very user-friendly. The first half of each book is the teacher’s portion. This comes close to being scripted with all lessons carefully detailed. Copywork and narration excerpts for each lesson are included with background information provided and comprehension questions (with possible answers) that lead the child comfortably into narration. The last half of the books are student pages. It’s suggested that these be removed and given to the student but they are reproducible for family use. Grade-appropriate writing space is provided along with copywork models. Occasionally, pen-and-ink illustrations brighten the pages.
