Target Age Group: Grade 4
Type of Resource: Non-Consumable
This Language Arts Guide
The “Solving the Mysteries of Grammar” guide schedules enough material for a full school year. This program pulls together several great resources. This guide schedules: guided cursive handwriting workbook, creative 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 an abundance of weekly teaching notes, helps, and instructions on how-to-use the materials in this guide and so on. The answer key for the LA 4 Student Worktext Set is included as part of this guide.
Students will solve grammar “mystery cases” as they continue to focus on grammar studies, and reinforce the grammar foundation laid down in LA 3. The LA 4 program includes language arts resources designed to help your student gain proficiency in grammar, begin cursive writing instruction, increase their reading comprehension and speed, and continue vocabulary building. It also includes a guidebook that offers creative suggestions to coordinate with several themed programs. 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. Students are expected to read about a chapter a day.
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.
