LIFEPAC Language Arts
LIFEPACs have long been a mainstay for Christian homeschoolers, providing easy to implement, largely self-instructional materials. The Language Arts program is particularly good, providing excellent instruction and practice at all levels, but highly recommended at the high school level. Lower levels teach and reinforce phonics and reading skills and introduce writing skills. These levels should be supplemented by appropriate grade-level reading materials or with grade-level study guides and books. Upper levels focus more on grammar, spelling, composition, and comprehension. Beginning in grade 7, required literature selections complement the LIFEPAC instruction (see below) at most levels. Novels that are studied are included in the Complete Boxed Sets, so you don't need to purchase them separately. Even so, you will probably want to provide an additional literature component (see our extensive offerings of study guides and literature programs in the Reading section). Boxed Sets contain LIFEPACs and teacher manuals with answer keys and any required readers. For additional students, order the LIFEPAC only sets and additional readers.
