This workbook was prepared for the last semester of first grade or after Book 1 has been completed. It is not recommended for use as a first book. Hopefully the blends will help students stay tuned and copying sentences teach sentence structure. Students should be able to work these books with a minimum of supervision. The pictures may be colored as time allows. There are two practice sheets in the back of the book that may be removed and xeroxed for students who need extra practice. We encourage you, the teacher, to teach proper paper and pencil position as well as neatness, which will be a big help in preparing them for cursive writing.
