Description of 1st Favorites Complete Guide Vol. 2 by Veritas Press

Designed for both the homeschool and Christian school classroom, Veritas Press materials provide the structure and information necessary for a successful, classical Christian education. With learning emphasis placed on grammar, logic and rhetoric, students lay their academic foundation first through extensive memorization, and then through the study of logic and eloquent expression. When these concepts are fully grasped, the student is then equipped to analyze and master every other subject.

The First Favorites Comprehension Guide: Volume 2 seeks to lay a firm foundation for a lifelong love of literature. These guides and the books they cover contain questions, activities, and projects designed to fan into a flame a student’s passion for reading.

This volume includes developmentally tailored comprehension questions, plus projects and activities that help students learn real-life application while encouraging independent work. Also includes a clear icon system for teachers to follow.

This is a beautiful, visual phonics program, although for my son, I needed other visuals for the phonics sounds for his memorization. I believe if I had used the same phonics for both his Kindergarten and first grades, he would be much further along. Having said that, he reads and comprehends well and does enjoy the different games and things we use for him to learn.

I only used the Veritas beginnner reader books (which I believe are in the Phonics Museum Grade 1 set) and although unique and unlike others I came across I did not love them. They were a bit strange (somewhat completely nonsensical stories with strange pictures) and did not seem to follow a pattern of phonics learning so that we could not follow in order without a gap in the books because there were many new words that were unfamiliar to the child. I used them with several of my children and they seemed to stumble quite a bit since many words were completely new to them without previous phonics/sounding out knowledge to apply to it. I did not use them within the entire Phonics program so that could be part of the problem as I was teaching another reading/phonics curriculum but there still did not seem to be a general learning pattern that made sense. Overall I kept them on the bookshelf to refer to from time to time as different readers than the standard run of the mill ones and practice for older readers. I had seen them recommended in the Well Trained Mind as beginner readers that were available.

Know the time consumption and effort necessary before purchasing this. While I love the reading and phonics, I was truly unprepared for the prep time with Shurley. And while I'm grateful that we were able to purchase it, I am uncomfortable with the amount of money it cost.
