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

These are my favorite books for part of our English studies the Charlotte Mason way. I have used them for 20 years and see no reason to switch now. I love that they are able to do these independently. Using this one for my 10th grader and adding some vocabulary, and extra reading (novels) from Notgrass Exploring America 2 curriculum.

My daughter needed just a basic review for her 12th grade year after completing all the IEW series. This looks like a refreshing resource for her last year in High School

Are the answers included?
User on Jun 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, answers are not included. Many of the lessons include copywork or creative writing which would not have an answer key anyway. However one is not included for other assignments either.
What grammar concepts are covered in this volume? Also, does this include any editing outside of copywork editing?

Refreshingly simple and effective!
This series follows a more relaxed method of homeschooling, such as Charlotte Mason Style. If you are looking for something that is uncomplicated, leaves room for creativity and accomplishes the job in a concise way, this is a good choice.
