Category Description for Language Lessons Series by Sandi Queen:

Pick-up-and-go language arts - Charlotte Mason style. Copywork, dictation, and narration from interesting, vintage works including poetry, speeches, and stories. Full-color art reproductions typically depicting a long ago, slower, more rural lifestyle. A full spectrum of language arts skills starting with phonics and handwriting and progressing through creative writing. A gentle but thorough introduction to grammar and mechanics with periodic review. An emphasis on creative expression and poetry appreciation. What's not to like? This is a far cry from repetitive, dry grammar books and their accompanying boredom.

There are 180 teacher-student interactive lessons in each book. Lesson times are very short (5-10 minutes) in the early books and progress to about 30-45 minutes in the upper level books. The beginning books are scripted while later books progress into a warm, instructive, conversational narrative. These perfect-bound books are designed to become a consumable student portfolio. Often - particularly in the early grades - students are asked to draw pictures on left-side facing pages all of which are left purposely blank. Except for the high school book, copywork/dictation space is provided. Grammar exercises requiring editing or some sort of marking (i.e. circle subject; underline predicate) always have adequate space for completion. There is no prep for the teacher although interaction and discussion with the student and oversight of their work is necessary. Answer keys provide time-saving answers for the objective portions but may not be needed for the younger levels.

Grammar coverage is comprehensive and thorough although practice is minimal. Continual review is provided for all grammar concepts once introduced and skills are carefully sequenced through the years to encourage concept understanding. Descriptive, narrative and creative writing are all covered in varying and increasing (through the levels) degrees. However, paragraph construction skills are minimal and essay construction is found only in High School Volume 2. ~ Janice

love this series, can't wait to start the next book!
Rachel R. on Mar 17, 2021
easy on the student and parent, is short enough for my wiggly daughter, and allows us to do other LA things we love because we're not stuck for long periods with a program.

I have been very impressed with the other materials I have ordered that are published by Queen Homeschool Supplies. I love that this has full-color pictures, copy work, and an introduction to grammar.

I used this series with my older girls and knew that I loved it then. I tried other materials but am coming back to this item as it instilled a love for poetry and beauty.

My son is ready for some gentle LA education

I was intrigued by this workbook and wanted to begin exposing young students to literature and art while laying down principles of grammar.
Michele H on Oct 16, 2018
these are neat language arts with a variety of things & yet saves me the work of the traditional Charlotte Mason approach of finding my own assignments

This was highly recommended by a friend who has used them for her children for years. The lessons are bite-sized yet effective.
Marguerite A on Nov 28, 2017
I chose this program because I want to introduce grammar basics in a more gentler, Charlotte Mason based way. After a very hectic and rough year, due to a family members serious illness, I wanted a less strenuous program to regroup and focus on want my children need for this year specifically.
Angela G on Mar 30, 2017
I've used it with two other children, and I love the complete simplicity of it. My four year old is ready to begin.

I have been using Queen's curriculum for a few years, and I feel that it is a solid curriculum with a gentle approach.
Cristofer S on Feb 2, 2017
I've used it before and am using it with another child.
Heidi B on Dec 30, 2016
I have used this series with my older children. It is a great CM style language arts resource. I love the variety of grammar, poetry, and art appreciation. I also use it to practice handwriting.
Heather F on Sep 22, 2016
This particular book looks like it will be just what I need to teach a little boy the basics of language. He'd much rather be playing in the dirt, so I was looking for something that was thorough and to the point without a lot of unnecessary 'extras'. This appears to be exactly what I'm looking for.
Kyle K on Aug 22, 2016
This is a gentle and Charlotte Mason approach to LA for elementary students. The lessons are short and cover narration, copywork and grammar lessons. Perfect for boys!
Ashleigh A C on Aug 19, 2016
I used this for my older child and felt it was a great way to start younger students in Language Arts.
Michelle C. on Jul 29, 2016
I used language lessons for the elementary child level one with my older daughter this year and she responded well to it. I wanted to use it with my middle daughter who will start third grade in the fall.
Danielle W on May 18, 2016
I love the gentle learning format of these books.
Miriam Susan W on May 14, 2016

Ehh
Its sweet but a little too gentle for my preference and too pricey for what you get. It's a lot of paper w not much on it. I switched to a BJU and have been happy.
