Product Description:

Continuing in the Cottage Press approach to language arts, this series now crosses over from Charlotte Mason to classical with Fable & Song based on the fable exercise of the ancient progymnasmata. The result? A comprehensive classical grammar and composition course for upper elementary students. The twenty-eight lessons are based on Aesop fables (12), poems (12 most from Robert Louis Stevenson) and parables (4 from the Bible). Language arts coverage includes literary analysis (basic components of a story/poem), grammar and word usage, style aspects, imitation of a worthy literary model (retelling), the writing sequence (plan, write, revise), and copywork. Cover the lessons in a week or several weeks there's flexibility. The Student Book is consumable and provides the daily lessons. Instructional text is written directly to the student. Assignments are included with space provided for writing. Actual compositions (retellings) and copywork are completed on separate paper. Flashcards are encouraged for grammar review and reinforcement. You can make your own or a set is available as a free download from the publisher's website. The Teaching Helps book provides detailed instructions for copywork, grammar, composition, and literary/poetry analysis. There are notes and teacher tips for each lesson as well as an answer key where needed. ~ Janice

Category Description for Cottage Press Language Arts Programs:

Is the Cottage Press series a Charlotte Mason language arts program? Well, yes it is! Is it a classical writing program based on the progymnasmata? Well, yes it is! If these two ideas seem mildly out of sync to you, then consider that some of the language arts methods attributed to Charlotte Mason are thoroughly classical in their origin (i.e. narration/retelling, copywork, dictation). Likewise, consider that the classical teaching methods based on the progymnasmata involve quality literature, teacher-student interaction, and composition mentoring. It’s easy to see that these two, seemingly different methodologies are actually quite compatible – at least in the area of language arts. It’s also easy to see that combining the two provides a strongly academic, teacher-student interactive approach to language arts. Lessons are detailed, well-organized, well-prepared and ready-to-go. All courses are based on the presupposition that the student is reading lots of quality, classic and classical literature. Courses in the early elementary grades incorporate more Charlotte Mason techniques and methodologies (including picture study) while the upper elementary, middle school, and high school courses are increasingly rigorous and follow the progymnasmata series of writing exercises. All levels include instructive student books and teacher materials with answers; both with gorgeous cover art. Both required and suggested resources are listed for every course.

This is part of our Charlotte Mason curriculum for the 22-23 school year.

What I like about Fable & Song is that it combines CM and classical methods nicely! It also gives practice with literary analysis. I am looking forward to using this book along with the student book next school year.

About how much time should be spent each day in this book? Is it all teacher directed, or is there some independent work?

BEST ANSWER: It all depends on the student's strengths, but we generally read the lesson together, and I pick and choose the sections for them to complete independently. Then we check the work together as a "class". I went through this book with 2 students, so that helped with discussion. I would guess we spend about 1.5 hours a week together and another 1.5 hours a week on their own.
