Product Description:

Self-described as Charlotte Mason-flavored, this language arts curriculum (with reading, grammar, vocabulary, composition and handwriting practice) pulses with a Biblical emphasis (NASB). With each lesson, students read a continuing story about friends Micah and Claire and their Sunday School experiences, alternating every other week with an age-appropriate literature selection. Each week follows a similar pattern of 20-30-minute activities.

Level 3 further strengthens previous reading, observation, and communication skills and begins writing paragraphs. Students will narrate, copy, and memorize Scripture. Sketching pictures to develop coordination and observation is included weekly. Each quarter, reviews cover punctuation, grammar, and writing and spelling.

Non-reproducible (unless otherwise indicated), consumable, and 3-hole punched. Approx. 400 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth

Publisher Description:

Enjoy this story-based course featuring Claire and Micah, designed to engage your young learner and strengthen their reading and writing skills. Real world examples and applications are the focus as they practice reading, apply grammatical skills, and increase their vocabulary. Complete with helpful illustrations and guides, this book will teach your student paragraph structure, compound words, contractions, sentence combining, helping verbs, prepositions, and more!

This language arts series adapts Charlotte Mason ideas for the modern homeschool student, complete with character-building themes. Each quarter has five stories, two picture studies (one of which is Bible-based), and two poems (one of which is a Psalm). Using the spelling words and the Dictionary Worksheets, students will create their very own dictionary as they move week by week through the material.

Develops reading and narration skills as well as writing mastery of multisentence paragraphs.

Language Lessons for a Living Education 3:

Continuing with what the student has learned in Level 2, Book 3 will add to their reading, communication and observation skills. They will begin to write paragraphs. They will review and refine lessons from Level 2 in addition to learning new skills.

This curriculum incorporates picture study, memorization, punctuation, spelling, vocabulary, observation, poems, psalms, letters, and practical application through creative writing all working towards the mastery of reading and grammar, as well as the mechanics of communication and writing. Equivalent to a third grade level.

Category Description for OTHER PROGRAMS:

Language arts programs listed in this section cover some combination of reading/literature, writing, grammar, spelling, vocabulary, handwriting or typing but do not attempt to cover all of those skill areas.




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). With each lesson, students read a continuing story about friends Micah and Claire and their Sunday School experiences, alternating every other week with an age-appropriate literature selection. Each week follows a similar pattern of 20-30-minute activities. For example: Day 1, read story; Days 2-3, learn language arts skills; Day 4, respond to literature; Day 5 spelling/vocabulary. Quarterly reviews of skills help monitor progress, and the fourth quarter is designed for review. Streamlined, these worktexts combine student and teacher material; youll 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 reading lists are included, but all levels require Favorite Stories from the Bible.

Master Books recommends beginning this series after Foundations Phonics and Basic Language Skills. However, to select a starting place, the general expectation is that the students skills should be comfortably at grade level (in reading, writing, and handwriting).

Starting with Level 2, students are introduced to punctuation, grammar, and writing. They will learn about nouns, compound words, subjects/predicates, possessive nouns, combining sentences, commas, interjections, action verbs, homophones, synonyms/antonyms, and specific verbs such as be, has, and see as well as pronouns like this and that. Students memorize verses from 1 Corinthians 13 (alongside Micah and Claire). Activities emphasize developing early reading, narration, and observations skills through such activities as picture study, creating stories, and handwriting practice.

Level 3 further strengthens previous reading, observation, and communication skills and begins writing paragraphs. Students will narrate, copy, and memorize Scripture. Sketching pictures to develop coordination and observation is included weekly. Each quarter, reviews cover punctuation, grammar, and writing (2) and spelling (1).

Level 4 strengthens skills from previous levels, focusing on independent reading and writing sentences and paragraphs, while adding study in noun types, verb tenses, and mechanics. Students work on reading comprehension in poetry, Scripture, hymns, and stories. Additional copywork, games, and activities are included to tailor to your student.

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. They will also learn additional spelling rules for special vowels and consonant patterns, as well as spelling exceptions and tricky words.

All of the levels in the series are non-reproducible (unless otherwise indicated), consumable, and 3-hole punched. Approx. 400+ pgs, pb. ~ Ruth

Had several friends already using this curriculum. It was time for me to order more and after seeing theirs and hearing their good reviews, I decided I'd like to try it. It looks engaging and manageable.

I have seen many good reviews for this curriculum so I am excited to try this for my dd.

I have heard good things about this series and want to try a new program. The program we were using just wasn't fitting our family.

I watched some You tube videos that recommended it. After looking it over, I decided it may suit my son.
Elizabe K on Mar 3, 2019
This looks like a gentle LA programme which is what I want. I don't see the need to bombard my 8 year old with heavy grammar. And this should only take a few minutes a day.

I started to reaseach new ways of teaching, this was one of the books recommended.

A breath of fresh air
This curriculum from Master Books has been a good fit for our family. I really wanted to love another curriculum we were using, but it was so frustrating for the kids and myself because it assumes too much about the student's capabilities; a stage the publisher pushed, but an unrealistic expectation for their recommended grade level. I realized I was forcing my kids to meet someone else's standards; so much for the "gentle" approach *sigh*

Language Lessons for a Living Education is colorful, which captures the attention of most children who may not have sensory/focus issues. The lessons are brief, matching a kid's attention span. The presentations of new concepts are not convoluted or too vague. There is a spiral approach but the review isn't overwhelming. I did start my kids one level behind the recommended placement. I felt this would give them more review opportunity, build their confidence for the things they could master, and allow them to work independently when necessary. We will continue with the next level.

Works great for our literature based, relaxed homeschool
Gentle and easy way to cover some grammar instruction in our homeschool. We don't use the additional Bible story resource (we skip that part in the workbook and my children get copywork practice in other areas). My kids love the fun spelling word activities and the word groups are picked well, based on vowel sounds or common spelling combinations.
