There are three Teacher Guides, 8 ½ x 5 ½ inches, corresponding to the three readers (ITB, FFS, and AB). The Guides follow the sequence of the Dialog Outline sheets. The Lesson Plans guide you in teaching the Multi-Letter phonograms, handwriting, word study, spelling, singing, memory work, and reading.
The child learns proper usage of the word and the definitions of Bible words. He is exposed to the parts of speech, homophones, root words, derivatives, easily confused words, and much more through oral instruction. The method is routine and dependable, but the words and applicable rules provide constantly vary, giving God’s deep thoughts to ponder, which promote a good character.
Bible verses are generally supplied for examples of word usage, when possible. Considered together, these Scriptures serve as a Biblical dictionary to reveal word meanings. Cursive handwriting is taught explicitly and remains central to the approach, which restrains dyslexia and promotes easy learning. The story of creation is eventually handwritten from dictation by the KJV Bible (not by glancing up and down to copy), phrase by phrase, or verse by verse, in coordination with the current reading lesson in Genesis.
Reviews and drills are contained in each lesson. The phonograms begin with the earliest preparation lessons and continue throughout the CRC, and should extend beyond. The Multi-Letter Phonograms ought to be indelibly impressed while studying the reading lessons and beyond.
- TGR-1 Teacher’s Guide, 1st Reader - In The Beginning Lessons, Red
This guide goes with the First Reader and contains detailed helps for teaching every multi-letter phonogram and for spelling every new word for these lessons. Teacher preparation is required and greatly facilitated by this guide.
- TGY-2 Teacher’s Guide, 2nd Reader - From Firmament to Seasons Lessons, Yellow
The second Teacher’s Guide accompanies the Second CRC Reader. It continues with the same routines as the first Guide, according to the Dialog Outlines. It teaches every new phonogram and new word. Additionally, the phonograms, not needed in reading and spelling Genesis 1 - 2:3, are gradually introduced. All phonograms that have been previously learned should be drilled and taught when no new phonograms are called for in the reading lesson.
- TGB-3 Teacher’s Guide, 3rd Reader - Abundantly Blessed Lessons, Blue
This third Teacher’s Guide accompanies the Third CRC Reader, giving a study routine for every new phonogram and new word. More Basic or Advanced phonograms are introduced when the lesson does not require any new phonogram. As a result, by the end of the reading course every phonogram, that we teach, has been introduced. With plenty of drill, these phonograms become common knowledge to every student. When this Guide is completed, the student is ready to progress to the First Sequel, When The Earth Was Young, Bible Speller-Reader. It is built on the vocabulary, phonics, and methods learned in the CRC. Without the foundational principles and vocabulary taught in the CRC, WTEWY cannot be effectively taught.
