Publisher Description:

As your child gets older, the need for proficiency in written and spoken language grows. With the LIFEPAC 8th Grade Language Arts homeschool curriculum, you can be sure that your student is mastering these critical language skills. At Alpha Omega Publications we accomplish this by using a unique integrated approach designed to build critical connections between grammar, vocabulary, literature, writing, and speaking. The major benefit of this integrated approach is that it increases a student's capacity to apply language skills in everyday life. The LIFEPAC 8th Grade Language Arts Set consists of ten student-friendly worktexts designed to provide daily instruction and application as well as regular opportunities for evaluation. This Alpha Omega curriculum includes handwriting practice as well as instruction in etymology, punctuation, grammar, dictionary and thesaurus skills, written and oral language, and much more.

This is only the beginning! With a focus on independent learning, the LIFEPAC 8th Grade Language Arts Set encourages critical thinking and academic independence in your child. Also included is a must-have Alpha Omega curriculum teacher's guide designed to help you increase language proficiency in your child. Some of the useful features of this great teacher's guide include teaching notes, answer keys, alternate tests, and an abundance of enrichment activities. The addition of this material provides ample opportunity for individualization of the program according to your child's particular needs.

Category Description for 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.

Lifepac Boxed Sets include all the student Lifepacs and the teaching materials for each subject. We also sell the sets of Lifepacs (student worktexts only), in case you already have the teaching materials for a subject and just need the consumable worktexts. Lifepacs are a mastery-based curriculum, and all instruction is offered in the consumable worktexts along with the workbook pages. There are 10 worktexts for one year courses (5 worktexts for one semester courses and Lifepac Selects) in grades 1 through 12 and two workbooks for each subject at the kindergarten level. Math and Language Arts are the only two subjects available for kindergarten. Answers are found in the Teacher edition for each subject. This is a student-paced curriculum.

Will this LA grade 8 LIFEPAC be all I need for English?
A shopper on Aug 14, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is a one year complete curriculum. There are ten work books so typically I would give my daughter three weeks to complete each book.

Not great for a student with reading comprehension difficulties.
This is a good system but it does not keep him focused. It is very wordy. We can only get through 3-4 pages a day without my son getting frustrated. First year homeschooling and I wasn't sure which system to get. My son is 8th grade but I think this might be higher than 8th grade level.

Lifepac grammar doesn't offer enough mechanical or writing lessons. I will recommend adding Easy grammar or daily grammar to any curriculum.

Good grammar lesson
I would have to supplement with more writing for my 8th grader but the grammar is super easy to follow and there is some writing but not enough
