This exciting class will be a coupling of two wonderful texts combined in a fun way that
will engage our young learners. Writing With Ease Level 3 and First Language Lessons
Level 3 are recommended to go together to give your student copy-work, reading
passages, comprehension questions, narration, picture study, poetry and other
techniques to develop the student’s language ability. Using passages and sentences
from classic children’s literature, it allows young writers to practice their skills while
absorbing the style and grace of great authors as well as sparking their imagination.
From parts of speech and contractions to punctuation, synonyms, and homophones,
these are easy-to-use, scripted lessons that will give your child a solid foundation in
grammar and clear communication.
This is a great class for those wanting to introduce their child to the basics of written
and verbal communication without the heaviness of an abundance of work on student
