Language Lessons for a Living Education: Grade 1
1st Grade. Covers reading, vocabulary, spelling, and grammar.
Move beyond simple phonics to a gentle course that introduces important basics in grammar while encouraging creativity. Students will make vital connections between the endearing images they see and the words they learn. They will begin to learn how to communicate with age-appropriate vocabulary words and very simple sentences build on and reinforce their understanding of the building blocks of grammar, vocabulary development, spelling, and connections that are at the heart of reading comprehension.
Written with a Charlotte Mason influence but designed for modern homeschoolers, students will enjoy poems and picture studies, as well as faith-growing verses to reinforce what they are learning. Activities include the structure of simple poems, Scripture passages, word rhymes, some basic language rules, creating a dictionary, easy narration, and critical thinking.
The course includes a scope and sequence, daily course calendar, assessments that can be used to assign grades, a recommended reading list, handwriting practice, and simple grammar sheets!
Required Course Materials: This course has an integrated reading component that uses Charlie and Trike in the Grand Canyon Adventure and Not Too Small at All. The Door of Salvation is an optional part of the course.
