I have set up a 60 page language arts lesson pack for children aged around 6 to 7 or slightly older. It incorporates Arabella Buckley’s Bird’s of the Air as a listening and basic comprehension lesson. Listening is an important skill that children need to learn to be able to learn other things. Charlotte Mason used “living books” such as those written by Buckley to read to children and have them narrate back in their own words. In the lesson pack there is room for doing that but also simple question and answer format for early writing practice.
I’ve included an introduction to Montessori grammar with cut out sentence strips and cut out symbols at the back.
I’ve tested the pack on my youngest and she did well with it. She is very dyslexic so it does seem to suit children who may have
extra challenges in learning. I do have the proper grammar symbols and Heleyna loves using them, but you don’t absolutely need them.
The set only costs $2.75 so it won’t break even the most frugal budget.
It introduces nouns, proper nouns, articles and prepositions – which sounds like a lot for a 6 year old, but the visual and manipulative approach with the symbols seems to work remarkably well.
