Note: This answer key only includes pages for which the child has to

write informa on on the course book page. Thus, there is not a page
in this answer key that corresponds to every page in the course book.

Tip: It is very important to the success of the course that you check
the child's work daily (even for advanced learners), giving feedback
or help as needed.

Tip: If the child is not understanding a certain concept, and you

are not sure how to help him or her, visit www.jennyphillips.com/
videos to see if there is a video on the topic that the child and you
can watch. Jenny Phillips is con nually adding videos to this page in
which she explains language arts concepts contained in the courses.
