Product Description:

Level 5 - While continuing to develop the skills presented in previous levels, students will practice sentence combining, descriptive and story writing, sequencing, pronouns, antecedents, compound sentences, subjects and predicates.

Publisher Description:

Language Lessons for a Living Education 5 is a Charlotte Mason flavored approach to elementary language arts. Enjoy a fun and effective language arts program for your elementary student. Students move beyond pages of text and memorization to make real-world connections. This exciting new series will help guide your young learner toward mastery of reading, grammar, and vocabulary, as well as the mechanics of communication and writing. Utilizing observation and reading comprehension through poems, stories, and real books as the foundation, your student will continue to build paragraph writing skills.

The course is a story-based approach, using Charlotte Mason ideas for the modern homeschool student with character-building themes. Each quarter has five stories, two picture studies (one of which is biblically-based), and two poems (one of which is a proverb). Using the spelling words and the Dictionary Worksheets, the student will create their very own dictionary as they move week by week through the material. This course incorporates picture study, memorization, grammar and punctuation, spelling and vocabulary, observation, and application through creating their own stories through pictures, sentences, paragraphs, poems, proverbs, and letters. This course also develops reading and narration skills. Writing stamina is built up gradually. By the end of the course, students should be able to comfortably write various types of paragraphs.

Students will build on and reinforce essential communication skills as they achieve proficiency in grammar, vocabulary, reading comprehension, spelling, and written communication. Independent reading and mastery of effective sentences and paragraphs are at the heart of this course.

Students will enjoy poem, hymn, and picture studies as well as faith-growing stories to inspire detailed and descriptive paragraphs while making real-world connections that enhance this fun and engaging story-based approach. Written with a Charlotte Mason influence but designed for modern homeschoolers, activities include book reports, Scripture, creating a dictionary, narration, and critical thinking games to hone and apply their writing and reading skills creatively.

Scope and sequence, daily course calendar, assessment charts, recommended reading list, spelling practice ideas, and grammar sheets also included!

Category Description for Language Lessons for a Living Education:

Self-described as Charlotte Mason-flavored, this language arts curriculum (with reading, grammar, vocabulary, composition and handwriting practice) pulses with a biblical emphasis (NASB). Learning activities are based in story/reading. In levels 2 through 5, students read a continuing story about friends Micah and Claire and their Sunday School experiences, and then they alternate with an age-appropriate literature selection. To select a level for your student, the general expectation is that the students’ skills should be comfortably at grade level (in reading, writing, and handwriting).

Each week follows a similar pattern of activities, with an included schedule. All levels encourage picture study, handwriting, Bible memorization, spelling (with creating a dictionary), progressively more challenging composition and reading tasks, and Just for Fun critical thinking activities. Quarterly checklist-type reviews of skills help monitor progress. These streamlined worktexts combine student and teacher material; you’ll find just-enough teacher direction highlighted throughout, additional direction in the front matter and in the Teachers Aid section (about 100 pgs.). This section includes such things as dictionary pages to copy, optional learning games, spelling practice ideas, copywork practice, and grammar study sheets. Recommended Master Books reading lists are included. Most levels require Favorite Stories from the Bible or other resources. Course includes a course assessment chart to record whether a child has mastered specific skills and a completion certificate. All levels in the series are non-reproducible (except where indicated), consumable, and 3-hole punched. ~ Ruth


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.

Jessica J on Jul 26, 2022
We have used all the previous levels. We like it because it is open and go and easy to use. My kids fly through these and are way ahead of what the level claims.

Levels 2 and 3 are working very well for my younger children and my older child needs an easy to implement language arts as well.
Tabitha F on Feb 21, 2022
We have tried a variety of approaches. We found that this one works best for us. It's not too much work to overwhelm our boys like our previous LA program.
Melissa M on Jan 14, 2022
We are loving MasterBooks Math and Language Arts! Simple, Charlotte Mason style with no prep from Mom required.
Rebekah M on Aug 10, 2021
I choose it to homeschool my daugther in grade 5, it is a hands on curriculum.
Rina v on Aug 5, 2021
A nice start for English and Grammar. This curriculum is definitely on the lighter side and most students in my opinion would have no problem going a grade up. I use this along with FixIt Grammar which is short but intense and ensures that they are learning to parse sentences and have a better grasp on solid grammar.
Amy B on Jul 23, 2021
A simple, yet thorough grammar curriculum with sweet illustrations and a biblical basis. It's everything we were looking for!

This curriculum was recommended by two different friends whose children enjoy the lessons.
Marissa V on Oct 4, 2020
Looking forward to a language arts option for my son to build confidence working more independently.
Kristina D on Sep 18, 2020
This seems to be a very straight forward book that comprehends all aspects of Language Arts with short, yet strong lessons. Just what I need for my 5th grader, who is on the Autism Spectrum and struggles with reading and writing.
Amneris B on Aug 4, 2020
I loved all the other language lesson books. I can't wait to try this one.
Shelley W on Aug 1, 2020
I have used levels 1, 3, and 4. (Two different boys.) I've enjoyed them and their format. They are not long and tedious. (My active boys will only sit still so long.) I like the way they go through and do little chunks each week over and over again. I also think copy work can be a valuable learning lesson for children. Most of the books have regular copy work in them. <br />In addition, making their own dictionaries has been a fun experience.
Elizabe K on Aug 1, 2020
It is for school curriculum
Charity R on Jul 16, 2020
First time trying this. After doing my research, I am hoping this will be a great fit for my hands-on learners.

Enjoyed LLFLA 3 this past year
Karen H on Jun 1, 2020
I have tried this same suppliers Math curriculum and we love it. It is very simplistic and not overwhelming for my child. I love how this literature bundle has spelling, vocabulary, writing, and literature all in one. I want to give it a try too.
Amanda M on May 26, 2020
My son used this, and we were pleased with it. I am purchasing it ahead for nextyear for my daughter.

Great way to cover the bases
I like to teach language lessons in a creative way, but this has been a great spine to make sure I cover my bases in a simple way while I add on some creative writing activities, etc. My only suggestion for revision would be to offer practice with spelling words each day rather than just having students work with them on Fridays.
