First Language Lessons Level 2
Our price: $16.95
If your approach to language arts is a blend of classical education with a pinch of Charlotte Mason’s ideas, then you will be quite pleased with First Language Lessons. With two to three short lessons a week, First Language Lessons Level 2 covers a full range of grammar topics, including parts of speech, punctuation, and the prewriting skills of narrating and storytelling.
It requires very little teacher prep; just open the instruction manual, read the script, and follow directions to teach the concepts. There is no student workbook for this level, since plain or lined paper is adequate until diagramming is introduced in Level 3. First Language Lessons Level 2’s spiral learning ensures mastery for every child, important for this foundational year of language study.

This builds on the concepts of the first one. If you didn't use the first level don't worry. It is not so complex that your child will be lost. It is set up with reviews and new concepts.
Same with the First Grade one, I just don't enjoy using these books....
It is very repetitive and follows right in line with what we do in Classical Conversations.
This was a little too repetitive for my child, but the exercises were good at getting her to understand the different parts of speech and such. We just worked around the repetitive factor by skipping a few lessons, here and there, if we'd already covered the material.
We used this only for a short time, it didn't work for us too well. But it had very good content, just thought we needed more.
