Product Description:

Publisher Description:

A Charlotte Mason and classical approach with short, easy-to-teach lessons for English usage, punctuation, composition, oral language skills, letter writing, and more. Includes narration, picture study (some printed in color), copywork, and dictation, as well as fables and poetry by famous authors such as Louisa May Alcott, Emily Dickinson, and Carl Sandburg. This non-consumable book (not a workbook) has enjoyable oral and written activities that may be used exactly as written or adapted to a child's specific needs and learning style. Spiral-bound, 8½ x 11 inches, with teacher instructions and answers included. Language Lessons for Today: Grade 3 was adapted by My Father's World from Primary Language Lessons by Emma Serl (1911), with significant revisions, updated language and examples, and additional new content. For 3rd Grade.

Revised and expanded by My Father's World, this publication builds upon the beloved Emma Serle's Primary and Intermediate Language Lessons, with grade appropriate lessons, additional content, new (col­orful) graphics, and parental teaching support and student lessons, all in one book. While the instruction is not comprehensive, there are helpful teaching directives at the top of numerous lessons which are not self-explanatory. Answers are included in the back of the book.

Mrs. Serle's philosophy of oral and written lessons is evident. Lessons are diverse and include oral (later written) composition, picture study, poetry memorization, copywork, dictation, poetry and literature studies, oral narration, and diction­ary usage. Lessons are interactive and will take approximately 15-20 minutes per day. If you are intimately familiar with Mrs. Serle's work, you may notice the 2nd grade book is the truest to the original, with significant additions to grade 3 and up, including hymn studies, picture studies based upon Biblical events and persons, and literature excerpts. While the books are considered grade level, there is some flexibility available and parents will eas­ily be able to 'tweak' these books for children of close ages or abilities. Since many of these les­sons use classic readings and poetry, they could also be easily adjusted for struggling students, while preserving the child's self-esteem.

Overall, the changes made to this series have only served to improve upon the gentle, exploratory language arts instruction found in Mrs. Serle's classic work. Written activities will require a 3-ring notebook and notebook paper. Also, recommended in for grade 3 and up, is the Merriam-Webster's Elementary Dictionary (#12621). Each spiral bound book contains 102 lessons. My Father's World updated the covers in 2018, but made no significant text revisions.Currently, our stock is updated to the new covers except for grade 6, contact us for availability. ~ Deanne

I needed a workbook that was affordable AND taught the things it was asking you to do. Most workbooks are just to practice things you have already learned, I needed one that actually taught too. I struggle with teaching him Language arts, and after looking through the sample pictures, I think this will help a lot.

It's a gentle approach to grammar for any grades younger than 4th grade--my son enjoys it and I do too.

We used gGrade 2 and liked its step by step and gentle approach. I like that it sticks to my Charlotte Mason teaching structure. It has been great for my ASD child because the lessons are short.

We have been using this series for 5th grade and have both really enjoyed it. I get excited for LL time!
Laura T on Apr 15, 2018
We are using grade 2 LLFT and it fits well with our Charlotte Mason methodology. We do not use every lesson because about half of the subject matter is already covered in our art study and daily narration practice, but the grammar lessons are succinct and gentle.

It follows a Charlotte Mason approach and philosophy as well as a bit of classical while having a gentle approach

Easy to implement and covers the basics of what is needed for 3rd grade. Supplementing with a beginning writing program. We enjoy the variety of lessons.
Christopher D on Aug 28, 2017
Chose this over the original Primary Language Lessons because of the adaptation to modern English/current times, the beautiful colored pictures and the recommendation from Cathy Duffy reviews as one of her top picks.

"recommended by a friend & because our current english program has been too stressful for Mother & children. :)"

Well rounded and efficient
I've had two children with very different personalities go through this program now. My writer loved working her way through this program, and I'm thankful that I can adjust many of the lessons to be oral for my non-writer. The lessons are varied and interesting and provide a gentle yet thorough introduction to grammar and writing. And with only a little over 100 lessons, I don't stress about getting through it in a year. We can take our time and focus on quality.
