*Free shipping offer does not include the cost of enrollment in any online course.

McRuffy Kindergarten Letter Logic Phonics and Reading has 160 action packed lessons divided into 4 parts (quarters) of 40 lessons. It is a complete online program with lessons for every phonics concept used and other reading concepts, digital reading books, hundreds of quizzes, and practice activities.

Although it is designed to be completely digital, McRuffy Kindergarten Letter Logic can be blended with printed materials designed specifically for the program. Workbooks are available below, and pdf teacher directed lessons for the complete course and teaching resources are already in the course lesson folders. The folders also contain the first 10 workbook pages, so you can decide if purchasing a workbook is the right option for the child before you buy.

We've also created hadwriting books that follow the Kindergarten Letter Logic sequence to combine handwriting with the phonics program. Reenforce phonics skills while completing handwiting assignments!

    Frequently asked Questions for all courses:

    I want to use this for a school or I am enrolled in a homeschool charter that would like to track student progress. What Learning Management Systems do you offer?

    We can offer the courses to connect to most learning management system through a standardized connection (LTI). You would likely not use the enrollment system with the links on this page. We are building courses in Agilix Buzz (including Agilix Publish Anywhere), and Moodle. Both have different features and both can connect to other popular Learning Managment Systems.

    Do you offer quantity discounts.

    We offer quantity discounts for classrooms and school districts.

    Why four quarters instead of a single course?

    This is the format for our self-enrolled courses. Schools using LTI can format the course differently.

    We found that limiting the amount of folders on the course landing page made it more user friendly for young children. 

    It also allows for you to skip quarters that have content your child has already mastered.

    Online learning may not be right for every student. There is less risk and upfront cost.

    Why is the enrollment subscription for 120 days?

    We've made the subscription times twice the time it would take to complete each quarter of the course in a normal school schedule. This allows you to take a much slower pace in the beginning without having to rush at the end. If students finish on the eight week pace, they may also go back and revisit favorite activities and books for review. Subscription times for school licenses may differ.

    Can a student complete this course independently or is it teacher taught?

    The course is designed to be used either way. Students may need guidance in the beginning to learn how to navigate through the activities early in the course. There are also many PDF resources available to extend teaching. It all depends on the needs of the student, but the online activities cover instruction, practice, reading, and evaluation.

    Will I have to print a lot of materials?

    You can print all the PDF files, some, or print none at all and still have a complete course. For example, if you choose to use the teaching files, you can teach from an electronic device without printing the files. 

    What's the best device to use with the course?

    We recommend a computer or tablet. It's sometimes difficult to view the entire activity on a phone.

    Can I drop the enrollment and get a refund?

    You can cancel the course within 15 days or before doing any activity after the first 10 lessons (Lesson 10 for quarter 1, Lesson 50 for quarter 2, Lesson 90 for quarter 3, Lesson 130 for quarter 4) whichever comes first. For this reason, PDF files for the third through the eighth week of any course are not visible until the first 10 lessons are completed.
