Each Teacher's Edition begins with an overview of the program and a step-by-step walk through the Student Workbook and Teacher's Edition. This is followed by the lesson plans for each of the sections within the Student Workbook.
The lesson plans are presented in a two-page layout, with teaching instructions around a copy of the student pages, annotated with the exercise answers. Finally, the back of the Teacher's Edition includes alternative chapter tests, if your child needs additional practice with the chapter concepts.
Each two-page lesson focuses on one main objective. The first page begins with a developmental model to get your child started.
