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 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

Love everything from this publishing company. I've gotten their Language arts, science, and math curriculum. Quality products at very low prices. Very engaging for the kids too.

I like that it is a God centered curriculum, but I haven't received it yet, so I can't speak to the content and ease of use.

I used the 2nd grade version and we've enjoyed it. It was natural to continue in the series.
Abby R on Apr 29, 2020
Now that we've completed our All About Reading and Spelling lessons for the school year, I wanted to try a comprehensive workbook with short lessons. After doing a lot of research, I landed on Language Lessons for a Living Education. I'm excited to give this a go!

Looking for a different approach than what we're currently doing(Sonlight LA).

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 heard good things about this series and want to try a new program. The program we were using just wasn't fitting our family.
Carrie P on Apr 1, 2019
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.
Ruth on Oct 23, 2018
I started to reaseach new ways of teaching, this was one of the books recommended.
Claire C on Sep 26, 2018
It just seems simple. I think we will be successful with simple.

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.
