This package includes the following items:

Publisher Description:

Language Arts 800 integrates grammar, spelling, and penmanship into one easy-to-use package. Grammar and punctuation skills are introduced incrementally at the beginning of each daily lesson, followed by exercises reviewing the freshest material as well as more familiar, almost-mastered skills. Each day's lesson concludes with penmanship and spelling practice.

This full-year course includes a research paper project for the student to complete along with a standard bibliography. They are taught how to choose vivid verbs and eliminate redundancy in their writing. Also covered are transitive/intransitive verbs, basic and perfect tenses, concrete/abstract nouns, categorizing pronouns, elliptical clauses, and figures of speech.

Category Description for Christian Light Language Arts:

A traditional language arts series that provides grade appropriate instruction in phonics, spelling, vocabulary, grammar (including diagramming), word usage, penmanship, dictionary/library skills, all forms of composition (formal and creative), book reports, literature analysis, and poetry. Thorough and comprehensive in terms of coverage, user-friendliness is fundamental to the series, which allows the student to work independently at all but the early elementary grade levels. Teacher oversight is expected but made easy by teacher materials that provide answers, grading rubrics, and lesson plans (amount of detail declines with grade level). Student materials are attractive and offer color highlights with some illustrations. All content reflects a conservative Christian viewpoint. Course components vary a bit with grade level but typically include sets of 10 consumable student worktexts (LightUnits) coupled with teacher materials. Quizzes and unit tests are part of each LightUnit.

The LightUnits Set for each course provides the instructional/textual material as well as space for the student pages plus quizzes and tests. There are 14-17 lessons per unit that include two quizzes and one unit test. Unit tests are in the middle and can be pulled out. There are helps in the back of the units -a penmanship chart, spelling bookmarks, a glossary, and a grammar reference. Instruction sequences are in color-shaded boxes. Both the Teacher's Guides with Answers and the Teacher's Guides provide daily lessons and spelling lists plus an index of grade level skills, a scope and sequence, and alternate tests with answers. Teacher's Guides with Answers are spiral bound and have reduced copies of student pages. Teacher's Guides are smaller and stapled and have only the lessons and appendices with answers in a separate publication. Quizzes/Tests Answer Keys provide full size copies of student test pages with answers filled in. Answer Keys have half-size reduced copies of LightUnit pages as well as tests. The Answer Keys Sets are two books that have answers to the LightUnit exercises. The Teacher Materials have a unit overview, brief lesson notes for each lesson, a scope and sequence for the course, and alternate LightUnit tests (in case a student needs to retake a test) and their answers. ~ Janice

Excellent curriculum and reasonably priced
Our eighth grader only has completed the first book. I find the curriculum very comprehensive and doable. Language arts is my achilles’ heel. I appreciate thoroughness but I am not sure how much he appreciates it (at this time!). The cost seems reasonable too.
