First Language Lessons Level 4
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 4 covers a full range of grammar topics, including parts of speech, punctuation, sentence diagrams, and skills in beginning writing and storytelling.

It requires very little teacher prep; just open the instruction manual, read the script, and follow directions to teach the concepts. The student workbook has appealing fonts and plenty of white space so the individual pages are less intimidating for children. First Language Lessons Level 4’s spiral learning ensures mastery for every child, important for this foundational year of language study.

Bundle includes First Language Lessons 4 Student Workbook and First Language Lessons 4 Instructor Text.

Very thorough English curriculum

As an ELA major, I knew I wanted something that thoroughly covered English language arts in all aspects. This hit every mark! Children memorize classic poetry, learn punctuation and capitalization rules, and are taught many other facets of the English language. They did not always love it, especially my son. Lessons are largely auditorily lead by the teacher, and he struggled to pay attention. The lessons make sure to revisit and review concepts regularly to ensure mastery as well.

First Language Lessons 4

This is our core grammar text. Yes, it's repetitive. Yes, it's simple and plain. It's also quick, and thorough, and my daughter and I laugh at each other while we chant out the repetitive bits. It's too quick and simple to be boring much - it's straight to the point and done, and your kids will know their stuff. Also, we really enjoy the memory work poems. We love all Susan Wise Bauer's curriculum in our house, actually!

So far so good.

I like the different content this program teaches. The scripted lessons make teaching the lessons quick with no prep work required.

While I will say that the teacher manual is great, because it tells the teacher exactly what to say and ask, I cannot say that we love this one. My child is able to memorize some of the poems, which really surprised me and made me proud! but we cannot always deal with all the repeating of phrases, language rules, etc. We are sticking with it, because the child is learning, but Its kind of dull.
