Homeschool Seatwork Charts
Coordinating with LA for Grades 1 & 2, these “charts,” will seem more like copywork sheets. Referenced in the Curriculum Lesson Plans, each perforated page has one side that shows cursive and one that shows manuscript. Slipping these sheets into a sheet protector or laminator will keep them usable for multiple lessons. Charts include: letter formation, number words, color words, days of the week, calendar abbreviations, months of the year, common abbreviations, evens/odds, and counting by 10s & 5s; 10s & 1s.
Can your child count by 10s, recognize his colors, and spell the months of the year correctly? With this book of Homeschool Seatwork Charts, he can! By copying the charts, your child will reinforce what he has already learned in the corresponding subjects. The perforated pages make it easy if you prefer to remove individual pages from the book to display on the wall. The 8½” x 11” size makes it easy to store detached pages in page protectors. Designed to coordinate with the seatwork assignments in the Homeschool Language Arts 1 Curriculum Lesson Plans, the 13 colorful charts display months of the year, days of the week, common abbreviations, color words, and numbers by ones, twos, fives, and tens, including even and odd numbers. Both manuscript (printing) and cursive letter formation and paper and pencil position are also visualized concepts for good practice. All charts except number charts include cursive writing on one side and manuscript on the other so that they can be used with either penmanship format that you have chosen to teach your child. Gr. 1.
Abeka® Language Arts Grade 2, transitions to reading comprehension and beginning literature analysis occurs. A complete Language Arts program requires both a Child and a Parent Kit. Child Kits contain the texts, readers, and all essential materials. Parent Kits include full lesson plans, answer keys, and level-based required materials. Additional lesson plans, student consumables, and reinforcement/enrichment ELA items are available on the Rainbow Resource website.
The Abeka® distinctives start very early and flow through all levels, such as a cursive-first handwriting approach (starts in K and reviewed up to 6), thorough grammar (with diagramming), foundation-based composition skills (begins in 1st grade) and listening/speaking skills (including reading aloud and poetry memorization). All with Christian, patriotic-focused content in a spiral format with detailed teacher instruction. In 1st grade, skills introduced in previous years (phonics/reading, optional cursive, poetry, and vocabulary skills) are enriched with creative writing and sentence-level mechanics, weekly spelling tests, and oral reading. In Grade 2, transition to reading comprehension and beginning literature analysis occurs. Grade 3 begins the four-pronged emphasis of reading skills (analysis & discussion), writing (academic & creative), spelling/poetry, and grammar. Grade 4 (Level A) adds speed reading, the writing process, researching, and diagramming. Students refine all skills in Grade 5 (B), aiming for varied reading and writing (emphasizing research skills), as they head for Grade 6 (C), which cements the elementary skills in preparation for Abeka® upper-level courses.
Language arts programs listed in this section cover most areas of language arts (reading/literature, writing, grammar, spelling and handwriting) in one curriculum, although some skill areas may be covered with less intensity than a focused, stand-alone course.
