Preparation for the Creation Reading Course and First Lessons, Teacher’s Manual. This manual, sized 8 ½ x 5 ½ x 1 inches, contains the broad principles and philosophy for this unique approach and a detailed description of the method. The Manual has explanations and instructions for the child’s first oral and written lessons. Many of these ideally begin with the baby, or even prenatally. These lessons must precede his reading lessons for the best results.
The Preparation Manual is most essential for the prospective teacher to study before attempting to teach the course. The information will be used from beginning to end in following the sequential, streamlined approach. Many find the new principles difficult to absorb in only one reading. Plan on reading it at least twice and use if for reference while teaching.
It includes tips for obedience, singing, memory work, good posture, speech, phonemic awareness, the beginner’s oral-hand-on math, scheduling suggestions, the classroom set up, lesson plans and how to keep records, singing and memory instructions, and how to teach handwriting.
The Appendixes contains (1) Suggested Nature and Art Activities that Coordinate with the stories of Creation Week. (2) School Entrance Age (3) a sample of approximately how the Student’s Notebook pages should appear, (4) Phonogram sounds listed in the order of how-many-sounds each phonogram makes, and varied Spellings for Phonemes if they may be spelled in two or more ways, and (5) The 27 Spelling Rules. Use the Nature and Art Activities to keep your child busy when not doing seat work, practical work or outdoor exercise. They will train his fingers to develop many useful skills.
This Manual is what the teacher most needs to study, diligently and before teaching, to learn the approach. He can then guide the child to find easy access to reading, without being harmed. If used according to the instructions and taught as soon as his development allows, he will not be pushed into reading prematurely, nor held back unduly while he develops wrong habits, but progress in harmony with his natural development. Balance the sedentary study for literary skills (up to one hour daily, depending on the child) with plenty of practical, oral, creative, and experimental learning. By using the broad educational resources of Useful work, Study of the Scriptures and of Nature, and the Experiences of Life, students may imitate the example of Christ, and receive a most valuable and balanced education without burn-out. Children learn quickly when they are facilitated with direct, daily lessons.
