All the Letters, All Year Long

Reviewed by Lisa Hodgen of Me and My House Ministries

Many years ago, with my girls that are now grown and have families of their own, we used a Bible-based unit-study curriculum for girls. We primarily picked this curriculum because it used many of the books that were my required reading for my girls anyhow. The curriculum was Far Above Rubies; the author, Lynda Coats.

Now, Lynda has written another unit study curriculum at the other end of the spectrum, a phonics program for beginning readers. Lynda calls All the Letters, All Year Long a “Comprehensive Unit Study with Total Immersion Phonics for Beginning Readers”. When Lynda says “total immersion” she isn’t kidding. She provides plenty of suggested activities for more subjects than you can probably think of, so no family should ever lack for ideas of what to do next.

The premise of All the Letters, All Year Long is that the child will work on learning the basic sound of one letter each week. And through that letter he will learn about many areas of life; he will be immersed in it.

This is a true unit study with activities for language arts, Bible, character and manners, daily routines including chores, hygiene, clothing and food, geography, history and social studies, science, exercise, games, arts and crafts, and field trips included for each letter. There are places to go, books to read, shows to watch, activities to make and do. Each activity will reinforce the phonics lesson further.

Like most unit studies, All the Letters, All Year Long is quite flexible. If your child doesn’t need to spend a whole week on each letter, don’t; or if you choose to spend longer on a letter, do. Since this is primarily a reading program, only the language arts and Bible activities are necessary. The others are all to be added as you choose. This program was designed for you to have fun with your students and help them enjoy learning.
