**ORIENTATION & DESIGN:
LOCO: Sentence Trains- The Complete Activity Pack, contains ALL five LOCO Kits; 1-2-3-4-5. Level One is the easiest, with each level being progressively more complex.
As the product title (LOCO) suggests, a locomotive theme predominates. Train carriages carry words on every activity card. As the participant successfully creates sentences by joining word carriages together, he/she journeys along one of the train lines on the Global Railway Network (GRN).
In the complete Activity Pack (all 5 KITS), the iconic cities included in the GRN are listed below:
Loco Kit 1: Los Angeles
Loco Kit 2: London
Loco Kit 3: Paris
Loco Kit 4: Sydney
Loco Kit 5: New York
Incidentally, along each of these railway lines, 15 authentically named train stations are positioned (they really do exist).
The graphics, layout and design in all five kits are intentionally geared to especially appeal to the older elementary aged child, even the easier levels. Boys who struggle academically, seem to greatly appreciate the dignity this affords them.
