Unboxing PAL: A Peek inside the Packages

Aug 04, 2020 | Posted by the IEW Blog Team


With school on the cusp of starting up again, we thought it would be helpful to describe in detail a few of our special packaged curriculums so that you are able to feel confident you can select the best option for your students. Today’s blog post is dedicated to discussing the three package offerings for the Primary Arts of Language (PAL) program, which are featured below:


  • Basic Plus Package: Primary Arts of Language: Reading and Writing Complete Package. These materials, which go hand in hand with each other, are suggested for students who are learning to read. The package contains the following components:

  • Premier Package: Primary Arts of Language: Reading and Writing Complete Package This package contains the same materials as the Basic Plus package, described above, except that in addition to the e-books that are already included, it also provides the student books in printed format. This is the perfect program to invest in if you are short on time and are teaching both reading and writing. The printed student materials are divided as follows:

    • PAL Writing Student Book (274 pages) is divided into three sections:

      • Part 1: Printing and Story Summaries

      • Part 2: Copywork and Style

      • Part 3: Composition with Style

    • PAL Reading Student Book is divided into three sections:

      • Student Book One: Lessons 1‒40 (approximately 104 pages)

      • Student Book Two: Lessons 41‒80 (approximately 108 pages)

      • Four Student Readers (approximately 60 pages)

We hope this blog post clears up any confusion you may have about which program will best suit your family’s needs. Keep in mind that if you are working with more than one student at a time, you will likely want to invest in a Phonetic Farm folder with the stickers for each child as well as possibly to purchase a second All About Spelling Student Materials Packet so that each child has his own.

Any lingering questions? We encourage you to contact us! We are very happy to clarify products and help you determine the materials that will work best for you and your students.
