Note: Book 4 has 2 parts to it... the "text" and the "exercises section".   The exercises section accounts for the last 190 pages or so of this book.  These are printed with large type and include many diagrams/pictures to help children grasp certain concepts.   I highly recommend that parents print this entire document using colors.   I had always found colors to be very important in Zachary's world... and with each passing year, I came to see more and more how colors had played a role in Zachary's development.   As such, my materials (especially the exercises), make use of lots of colors to teach concepts.

For those who did not have a color printer, I had also made use of shapes in these materials in order to help provide the concepts that way also... however, there could be no denying that, in my opinion,  colors were very key to Zachary.

Note that some sections were repeated from previous books.   However, since I wanted to put all my thoughts on language in "one book" I had to include these sections here.   These are indicated in the Table of Contents as well as in the links below for those reading online.

Updates:  These are currently provided only in "individual sections" below (not in pdf file)... make sure you read update on "pronoun confusion"... critical in my opinion!  Also look at sections below for any other update since pdf file was created (i.e., section on discipline has update also).
