Language Arts

When there is an emphasis on reading from a young age, language skills will be learned effortlessly. The child will write well and exhibit an expanding vocabulary in both speech and writing. You may also find, as we did, spelling class to be unnecessary.

Literature School Basics

1)Select a number of well chosen books. 2)Set a particular time to read each book. 3)Let nothing interfere with your ` scheduling. 4)Use discussion and research to create interest. 5)Process, by writing or narrating.

Each child should haverepparttar opportunity to read aloud each day. During this time you can note and correct mispronounced words.

Older Students

•Present questions that require thought. Some questions may not have one perfect answer. Some may not have an answer at all. Nevertheless, thought is stimulated and learning takes place. •Copy challenging writing in order to practice English skills and increase comprehension. •Do extensive research in order to understand deeper writing such as poems. •Research authors, times and places. •Report by presenting orally or compiling results of research in writing. The quantity and quality of written assignments should increase with older students. •Solidify language-learning with a formal grammar course and a formal writing course such asrepparttar 140213 Wordsmith courses by Jane B.
