Language Lessons for Grammar Students

Continuing in the Cottage Press approach to language arts, this series now crosses over from Charlotte Mason to classical with Fable & Song based on the fable exercise of the ancient progymnasmata. The result? A comprehensive classical grammar and composition course for upper elementary students. The twenty-eight lessons are based on Aesop fables (12), poems (12 most from Robert Louis Stevenson) and parables (4 from the Bible). Language arts coverage includes literary analysis (basic components of a story/poem), grammar and word usage, style aspects, imitation of a worthy literary model (retelling), the writing sequence (plan, write, revise), and copywork. Cover the lessons in a week or several weeks there's flexibility. The Student Book is consumable and provides the daily lessons. Instructional text is written directly to the student. Assignments are included with space provided for writing. Actual compositions (retellings) and copywork are completed on separate paper. Flashcards are encouraged for grammar review and reinforcement. You can make your own or a set is available as a free download from the publisher's website. The Teaching Helps book provides detailed instructions for copywork, grammar, composition, and literary/poetry analysis. There are notes and teacher tips for each lesson as well as an answer key where needed. ~ Janice
