What is WinterPromise’s approach to Language Arts?
In the younger years, our language arts take a multi-faceted, interactive approach. From Pre-K to 2nd grade include resources that encourage active learning. For instance, both the Basic Phonics and Advanced Kindergarten language arts programs use a hands-on activity pack that has dough, macaroni pieces, sand, string, and more. The activity pack includes a list of activities that teach phonics in imaginative and fun ways. Other resources reflect this active approach to learning the language arts skills. As the language arts programs progress beyond reading and comprehension skills, they add studies of grammar, cursive handwriting, vocabulary studies, and spelling. In the middle and early high school years, creative writing is practiced and the student’s communication skills are refined. Great literature is included in junior and senior high packages in increasing amounts, exposing them to wonderful classics and offering them discussion and evaluation opportunities, including on our online forum.
The Strength of Cross-Curricular Study
All of our language arts programs include readers and a guidebook whose creative writing assignments coordinate with the basic programs. This means you need to order the correct package to coordinate with your basic study! Educators recommend the additional reinforcement that cross-curricular studies offer.
Several Options for the “Learning-to-Read” Ages
We offer several language arts programs and accompanying reader sets to coordinate with main programs targeted for younger learners. Just another way to keep your family learning together, with the perfect options for each student.
