A comprehensive Language Arts program in the elementary grades should include phonics, writing, grammar, and spelling from reading or writing. None of the recommended curricula are standalone materials; all are recommended as part of a comprehensive Language Arts program. As a student progresses through the grades, the emphasis is less on phonics and more on comprehension. The curricula recommended cover the grade-level content, and where a curriculum many need to be supplemented, it will be noted.
