Sell me on LoE in Logic Stage & Middle Grade Challenges Posted April 27, 2013 I really, really want to love LoE Essentials but I'm just not sure. I'm about done reading ULoE book and wished I had been taught the spelling rules and phonograms when I was in school to prevent me from being the mediocre speller that I am (though since having kids I've become a walking dictionary :confused1:). I've watched many of the videos Denise has on youtube and bought the Doodling Dragons book for my youngest but I just can't take the plunge and purchase Essentials. I have a dyslexic 3rd grader that has made a lot of process this year but is still struggling and at times frustrated. I really think teaching her the phonograms and spelling rules will be of great help. The fact is has grammar is a total bonus as reviewing that isn't going to hurt either. But my issue is after looking at the samples, it bugged me that the first phonogram and spelling rule was qu but only one word is the spelling list had qu in it! The second lesson was ck and only spelling 2 words had ck and there was no review of qu (the words quick, quack would have been perfect). Am I just being overly critical? Does somehow it just work and click? The sample is only of the first two lessons so maybe if I had a broader sample I'd feel more confident purchasing it. I really just want something open and go that we can just buckle down and get though most of it this summer. So somebody, anybody, please sell me on it. Thanks.
