In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

1. Copy the reading (unmarked) on a sheet of lined paper.
Make sure that you copy all capital letters, spelling, spacing and punctuation perfectly. Skip a line after each written line. Write large enough so that you can make orthography marks on the letters and syllables.
2. Find all words of more than one syllable. Draw a bar ( | ) to divide the syllables.
3. Mark each letter or digraph with its correct orthography symbol.
You can use your lessons to help you learn them, but you should be able to do this by thinking of what sound each letter or digraph makes and what orthography symbol is used to mark that sound.
4. Continue this exercise every day until you can complete it perfectly with no help.
