    Question about how SC uses Primary Phonics Storybooks

    Does the child read each story more than once?

    Will SC use sets 4-6? If not, why not? I see that the Moose Moments Readers has been added, but they don't seem to cover everything that the Primary Phonics Readers 4-6 cover.

    Thank you :-)

    Edited to ask if anyone has used the additional storybooks for sets 1 and 2.

    Re: Question about how SC uses Primary Phonics Storybooks

    To be clear: is this the series you are referencing?
    https://www.memoriapress.com/curricu...red-set-of-10/

    Simply Classical Level 1 is the level that begins using these readers. Sets 1-3 are used along with “Soft and White”, “Fun In the Sun”, and “Scamp and Tramp” from the American Laguage Series readers.

    Every story is read to death — uh, read more than once. So that’s a resounding “yes”. See the full list here:
    https://www.memoriapress.com/curricu...culum-level-1/

    Simply Classical, Level 2, introduces The Moose Moments readers, “At The Farm” from the American Language Series and the student’s first step in to independent story book reading and analysis. https://www.memoriapress.com/curricu...culum-level-2/
    Stories are also read multiple times.

    The Primary Phonics readers are not continued after Set 3, I infer, due to pricing, convenience (who needs two dozen little books when four will serve the same purpose?) and the methodical pacing of Simply Classical. Having said that, no, your student will not miss out. The American Language Series’ “On The Trail” and “Sounds of the Sea” continue the phonics and reading intensive in Simply Classical, Level 3. https://www.memoriapress.com/curricu...culum-level-3/
    They are actually more challenging in many places than the Primary Phonics Readers. And they have color illustrations (something that always makes my children happy).

    We recently bumped my oldest up from SC2 to MP1. We read through set 5 of the Primary Phonics Readers as assigned. He had no problems at all. So he was definitely well prepared from his time in SC2.

    Hope that was helpful.

      Thank you so much Anita! Your post is very helpful :-) Yes, I was referring to the series you referenced. I have the MPK phonics lesson plans but don't have MP1, SC1, or SC2 because I use a different phonics program (a synthetic phonics program that has extended books written for children with learning difficulties). I do have all the readers used in SC1 and SC2, so I was curious how the use of the readers differed. I suspected that they would be read repeatedly (thank you for confirming this!). My son really likes the Primary Phonics books, so I wondered why they weren't used. I love the color pictures in the ALS readers, but being able to finish a "book" in a sitting seems to give him a sense of accomplishment that reading stories from a larger reader doesn't. He needs variety in addition to repetition because when he read something more than once in a short period of time he remembers a lot of it and is not practicing reading as much (hope that makes sense). I'm going to order the additional readers to give him additional variety. Again, thank you so much!!
