A Total-Immersion Phonics Program!
All the Letters, All Year Long is a unique, total immersion phonics program touching on all areas of academic knowledge and everyday life, helping pre-readers to identify letters and their sounds whenever they encounter them.
This program could serve as a stand-alone phonics curriculum or may be used to supplement any other program. Children learn the shape and sound of one letter at a time, centering everything for that week around that letter.
In addition to the expected reading, writing, and phonics, there are activities relating the letter sounds to Bible, character, manners, food, clothing, toys, videos, games, sports, arts and field trips.
There is something for everyone and many more activities than any one family is likely to use. All learning styles and a variety of ages are taken into account in this easy-to-use program.
This comprehensive program is available as an instantly downloadable e-book. This convenient format allows you to print one lesson per week, or the whole thing at once, and place it in a three ring binder for quick and easy use.
In a recent review, Miko Gibson of Berrysong wrote:
“I love the program. It is comprehensive, rich and fun! The ideas for the teaching of the sound and shape of each letter of the alphabet are simply wonderful! I also appreciate Mrs. Coates’ suggestions on how different subjects and interest areas can be incorporated into each day’s learning experience. Not only will your child be learning his letters in a fun and natural way, you can also bring in the Bible, Geography, History and Science to reinforce the sound of the letters being taught.
Then there are also great ideas for other activities like Sports & Fitness, Games & Group Play, Arts and Crafts, Performing Arts and Field Trips. There are even ideas on Daily Routine!
This program is very flexible. You can go as broad or as deep as you like. Although the program is meant for beginning readers, your older children will also benefit from the many, many ideas presented in the book.”

“If you need to quick-start your reading and writing lessons, All the Letters, All Year Long is the place to start! I spent hours thinking up lesson plans and resources for my boys when we were in the ‘learning to read and write’ stage of life.
Lynda Coats’ wonderful phonics program would have made the whole process so much simpler– just open the book to the letter of the week, and start using some of the many wonderfully creative ideas Lynda has provided to teach the all-important communication skills (and much, much more). Her heart for teaching is apparent in this easy-to-use resource. I’m positive that you’ll enjoy using it!”
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.
