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

We have been using Language Lessons for six years now. We absolutely love the short lessons! At one point I wondered if it was enough, but it didn't take long for to realize that Language Lessons was introducing all the grammar concepts out there and that our children didn't need to do additional work. Sandi Queen does a fabulous job at gently introducing all grammar concepts without confusing the child! Can't say enough about it, we absolutely love it!

I used LLVY level 1 for a gentle approach to grammar, copywork and narration. My boys loved the picture studies.

I've been using this curriculum since my children were young, and am impressed with the short lessons and the gentle building on concepts already learned.

We have used Language Lessons since preschool and we like it's gentle, yet solid approach to language arts using copywork, grammar instruction, poetry, narration, picture study and creative expression.

These shorter, simpler lessons were just right for my less-than-focused son. They were clear and manageable. I love doing copywork rather than random word lists for spelling. Made sense to go this route. Although, stand alone, I don't feel it's quite comprehensive enough. I supplement with good literature and projects of my own.

I love that the lessons a quick and often make my kids use their critical thinking skills.

My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the previous volume and asked to get the next one. She usually chooses to do Language Arts first as it's her favourite subject thanks to this book!

Is this material secular or religiously based?
A shopper on May 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Several of the copywork selections have a Christian theme, including a song based on the Ten Commandments, "The Lamb" by William Blake, and "These are the days when birds come back" by Emily Dickinson. The copy selections were very long for the targeted age group.
Is this material secular or religiously based?
A shopper on May 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The only religious material I could find while flipping through the book was copywork of the 10 commandments. Otherwise, it is mostly secular.

Great approach!
This is my oldest son's first year using this series and it is an excellent fit! He is one of those kids that excels academically and learns quickly so he doesn't really need a lot our repetition. The only area he struggles in is spelling so the copy work is very helpful because he has to check and be sure he has voted correctly. Amazingly my younger son who has some learning challenges does great with this series as well!
