-Student Whiteboard

Handwriting Style

-Foundations C Workbooks are printed in only ONE version that can be completed in cursive or manuscript. Student samples are in bookface, and students complete exercises in whatever handwriting style they have learned.

-Lowercase letters are taught in Foundations A.
-Uppercase letters are taught in Foundations B.

For those new to Foundations

-Foundations C builds systematically on material students have learned in levels A and B. It is not a starting point for the Foundations program.
-For young children who have already begun reading and know the concepts taught in A, we recommend starting at Foundations B (see tips for adjusting the pace and level of challenge).
-For students 8 and up who are beginning Logic of English, we typically recommend Essentials.

After Completing This Level

After completing level C, you will need:

-Foundations D Set (lessons 121-160), plus the children's literature used in D (available here or from the library )

Children typically spend about five to eight months on Foundations C, depending on the age and prior knowledge of the student. The lessons in C are longer and more challenging than those in B, so you may find you need to decrease your pace as you begin this level.

The "right" pace through the curriculum varies by student and setting, but it's common for students to complete Foundations levels A through D in 2-3 years.
