First Language Lessons Level 1
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 1 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 1's spiral learning ensures mastery for every child, important for this foundational year of language study.
