Step-by-Step Sentences Book 2
Created to accompany the Simply Classical Curriculum, this would also work well as a stand-alone introductory writing course for young elementary children or those who have been overwhelmed with other programs and may need a slower, methodical approach.
Books begin with "Teacher Notes," which contains helpful information like the supply list (colored pencils, pencil with good eraser and required resource books), teaching tips and a suggested schedule. A list of 12 Rules about Sentences follows which is integral to the lessons and serves as a valuable reference for student and teacher of the basics for good writing. Each leveled book is available in two options: Bible Story Edition or the Read Aloud Edition without Biblical content.
Book 2 builds on the concepts taught in Book 1. More in-depth coverage is given to grammar and sentence structure including: sentences vs sentence fragments; declarative, interrogative and exclamatory sentences; adjectives, adverbs, nouns, pronouns, verbs; synonyms, antonyms; story synopses; main ideas, and more. Writing lessons culminate with students writing themed paragraphs using their own words or the included prompts. Writing lines measure 3/8" and have a dotted center. The Bible Story Edition requires The Story Bible (#053115). The Read Aloud Edition includes numerous additional resources, see website or contact us for the list. Families purchasing the Simply Classical Level 3 American History Read Aloud Set will not need to purchase additional resources for Book 2. At this level, there is a separate Teacher Answer Key which includes the student pages with provided answers, reproducible visual aids, book or bible verse list, reproducible templates for additional practice and certificate of completion.
