Teaching multiple students?
Each additional student will need:

-Essentials Student Workbook, Lessons 1-7
-Spelling Journal (one per student)
-Student Whiteboard (recommended; included in Rhythm of Handwriting Set)
-Optional: Phonogram Game Cards (add additional sets if teaching more than four students; used in groups of four)
-Optional: Phonogram Game Tiles (we recommend one set for every one or two students)

Handwriting Styles
Essentials does not teach handwriting. Students may complete Essentials lessons with either cursive or manuscript handwriting; the sample text is in a standard bookface font to allow greater flexibility.
This Complete set includes Phonogram Game Cards - Cursive. This enables students to practice reading the phonograms both as they appear in books and as they appear in writing.

If Handwriting Instruction is Needed
If the student struggles with handwriting or needs handwriting instruction, introduce either cursive or manuscript using The Rhythm of Handwriting. The Essentials Pre-Lessons include a suggested schedule for integrating Rhythm of Handwriting instruction.

Continuing through Essentials
After completing these lessons, add the new materials for Lessons 8-15. Continue with Lessons 16-22 and 23-30 when you are ready for them. At a pace of one lesson per week, you can complete all 30 lessons in a school year; at a pace of half a lesson per week you will complete about 15 lessons in a school year.

The entire curriculum, Lessons 1-30, can then be reused up to two additional times at a more advanced level of instruction.
