Calvert 1st Grade Language Arts is a comprehensive phonics-based language course that integrates phonics, reading, and grammar into one fun-filled homeschool course. Ten colorful worktexts, five vocabulary-controlled readers and a complete teacher's guide make this a great choice for parents looking for an easy-to-use reading program! A set of five beginning-level readers is included.
Through this colorful course, students encounter skills such as rhyming words, consonant digraphs and blends, vowel digraphs, R-controlled vowels, and diphthongs, as well as basic grammar skills to take students from "learning to read" to "reading to learn!"
Calvert Language Arts takes a secular, umbrella approach that wraps reading/phonics, spelling, and handwriting, plus introductory grammar and composition into a single set of Worktexts. Teacher Editions provide teacher helps, grading info, record-keeping sheets, alternate unit tests, daily lesson plans (only in K-1, w/reduced student pages), materials lists, optional learning activities, reproducible worksheets and alternate tests, and answer keys. Worktexts provide both textual material and the written response space students need. Complete Sets include both Worktexts and Teacher Editions. Some sets include extra readers.
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.
