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 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.

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

Publisher Description:

Language Lessons for a Living Education 4 is a Charlotte Masonflavored approach to elementary language arts. Enjoy an engaging and effective language arts program for your elementary student. Students will 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 psalm). 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, psalms, and letters. This course also develops reading skills and gently develops narration skills.

Language Lessons for a Living Education 4:

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

Colorful and endearing pictures enhance this fun and engaging story-based approach. Written with a Charlotte Mason influence but designed for modern homeschoolers, students will enjoy poem, hymn, and picture studies and faith-growing stories to inspire detailed and descriptive paragraphs. Activities include memorizing poems, Scripture, and the books of the Bible, creating a dictionary, gentle narration and copy work, and critical thinking games to hone and apply their writing and reading skills creatively.

Additional copy work, fun games, and activities are in the back for extra practice of key grammar concepts and spelling, making the course easily adaptable to meet the needs of each student.

Writing stamina is built up gradually. By the end of the course, students should be able to comfortably write a four to five sentence paragraph.

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

We used this curriculum for 2nd and 3rd grade. My daughter gets overwhelmed with too much information so I like how the lessons are short and simple. About 1-2 pages per lesson.

Does each level correspond to the grade?
A shopper on Aug 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is a difficult question to answer. If you mean by state standards, perhaps. I'm not positive, because our needs were not to be at grade level. For example, the previous language arts curriculum we used before trying LLFALE left my children really turned off, so we needed to back off a bit. This has been a gentler (and more fun!) approach for sure. I am not going by recommended grade level. We took it down a notch, and it has been so helpful. If you go MasterBooks dot com, you can see a bigger sample of their books. You could also search YouTube for reviews to get a better feel of what's covered in each grade level. For the areas that were "easier," for my kids, it helped boost their confidence; it didn't bore them. Obviously, your mileage may vary.
