Book 2: The Magic Ax
We started with Book 1: The Magic Hole.
This story is about 6 year old Patty who only wanted a pair of Pixy Boots like she saw in her book. What she ends up with are not the boots she wanted, but GOBLIN BOOTS! Oh the trouble these boots cause her! She kicks her dog, runs, falls....it's just not good. In the end, she does get her boots and all is well, once more.
The last book is Book 6: The Magic Box.
The Naughty 40 is a great list of more complicated words. We used this as a spelling refresher during the review. I would call off each word and mark whether or not he could spell it easily. The words he had more difficulty with became his spelling words.
The flash cards were just used for fun here, but they are a nice resource to have.
This is the flow chart style I was talking about.
The short answer worksheets are a great way to build on comprehension and critical thinking. He didn't get so fatigued by the reading that it made this part of the assignment more difficult, so he was easily able to work through these while still being challenged.
Overall, I would recommend these to others!
