This lesson pack is Book 7 of the Newitt Beginning Reading and Writing Program. The program provides a fundamental yet integrated approach to reading, writing, listening, and speaking the English language. The standards-based series of 24 books guides novice learners through a full year curriculum. Each lesson discovers, connects, and practices the basics of English.
A key feature of the program is that it uses linear incremental steps and repeated practices linked to higher level thinking skills. This approach gives the learner a solid foundation of reading and writing experiences. In the process, the learner gains routine study habits, motivation to learn, confidence, and mastery.
Please print each lesson double-sided and then cut in half, so that the pages are 5 1/2” by 8 1/2”. Each lesson has 24 sides.
This book connects to "Book 8: Understand Descriptive Words (Newitt Prereading Series)"

“What a great program! Great for PreK–2nd grade! A must try for the visual learner! My son is 4 and already recognizes syllables, letters, and words. He loves the program. He asks to do some every day. Newitt Learning is a fantastic curriculum.”
