This guide schedules: cursive handwriting practice, creative paragraph instruction and writing, parts of speech worksheets, punctuation, sentence structure and types, spelling activities and practice, vocabulary workbooks, reading, language activities, and language skills. The guide offers weekly teaching notes, helps, and instructions on how-to-use the materials in this guide and so on. The answer key for the LA 6 Student Worktext Set, Alien Spelling Word Attack!, and “First Contact” is included as part of this resource.
The power of expression is in good word choices! Students will focus on choosing the right words to express ideas when writing.

Students continue to improve their reading skills, reading suggested books that range in length from 65 to 250 pages, but which have a consistent reading level achievable for this age.

Introducing Ebook Language Arts!
You’ll love the functionality and flexibility of our ebook language arts programs for grades 3-6. Each program is an ebook collection that includes a guide and most of your language arts resources. These ebook collections are specially formatted to make them easy to view on a tablet or laptop or print from your home printer and use. The language arts worktexts, for instance, can be printed as worksheets at home or in WP’s booklet format at Staples.
Best of all, your ebook purchase allows you to print as many copies of consumables as you need for your family. Printing consumables can really help you save on most language arts programs, as so many include several consumables.
Another change this year is that we are no longer selling readers as part of our 3rd-6th LA programs. With the advent of personal reading devices, tablets, smartphones, and laptops, more and more of these books are available in a less-expensive ebook format. Reader sets are still scheduled and available as special-order items, but we believe this offers flexibility to parents to choose to buy ebooks, or borrow books from a friend or library to reduce their homeschool costs. Instead, we are including eReading Schedules that schedule books and provide discussion questions.

Using The Resources Scheduled in This Guide
Students who have used our other language arts – LA 3 “Tracking Down Good Grammar,” LA 4 “Solving the Mysteries of Grammar,” and LA 5 “Digging Into Paragraphs” – will use the skills gained through those programs to complete the workbooks scheduled in this guide. Each year grammar instruction and review is part of those programs. LA 6 “Exploring Word Pictures” includes grammar exercises for the student to complete. The assignments in these workbooks are done though in a real-life format. This means that students will be determining on their own what part of speech an underlined word is, locating and correcting run-on sentences, finding and differentiating between similes and metaphors, and correcting sentences that are not punctuated correctly.
It is important to note that grammar concepts are listed in a comprehensive appendix, as part of the LA 6 “Exploring Word Pictures” guide. This reference resource is called, “Navigation Log: Grammar Concepts for Mission Log Assignments.” Students will find this resource helpful to remind them of things they already know.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Students who haven’t covered grammar or only have had some grammar instruction – we suggest that you use our other LA programs. Our LA 4 or LA 5 as they have more lengthy instruction and take more time on each concept. Students who are less familiar with grammar will benefit more from those LA. It is important for families using our LA for the first time or changing LA programs, that we recommend using our LA 5 before using this one for reasons as mentioned above.
