If you have the Phonics in Motion Book, you know that the Language Calendar (LC) is the center of the show.  The LC is your home for teaching writing and sharing your thoughts about how and why you write what you write. You model written language daily on the LC, involving little ones in the thought process around writing by talking through it playfully.

PIM believes in removing stress from learners by always modeling before moving toward independent practice.  As you write an entry on the LC, you integrate all of the components of the PIM system by using the Reading & Writing Monster who lives on the left of the LC, using the KMPs for sounds as you discuss what you have written, and bringing words from the LC to the Vowel House (1st grade and up).

It is a structure for modeling written language daily and features how letters, sounds, and words work in the English language for effective communication. It is a powerful and fun format for the teacher or parent to demonstrate how they think as they write. The Language Calendar also enables you to develop other subjects, by using it as a math calendar, discussing the days of the week and the month, and by writing entries about science and math for example. Like other PIM tools, you are not forcing children to do worksheet after worksheet or sticking them in front of a screen; language is developed authentically and naturally, together, with movement and fun. 

Phonics in Motion is an integrated program. The KMPs are used in every other component. They’re embedded in handwriting stories and used on the Language Calendar. They also live in the Vowel House. You'll bring words from poetry, the Language Calendar, and authentic language experiences to the Vowel House - it all connects! If you're interested in the entire system, our family value bundle includes this product and is the most cost-effective and comprehensive way to leverage PIM. Check it out here and save! 

To keep prices as low as possible while making an effort to reach as many families as possible, PIM family products include a one-year subscription that can be renewed year after year.
