First Language Lessons 2
by Jessie Wise
First Language Lessons 2 by Jessie Wise (new edition). This deliciously cozy, yet classicly thorough approach to language arts is perfect for building not only solid educational foundations, but educational delight as well. First Language Lessons, written by Jessie Wise (co-author of The Well Trained Mind), is essentially a day-by-day, word-for-word, activity-by-activity script for the parents. It contains everything you need for 2nd grade language arts: memory work, stories, copy and dictation work, narration, and grammar. It even contains reminders to praise and encourage your child! As Jessie (author) says, "We can grow children who exceed the average by exposing them to above-average content - as long as that content is taught patiently, frequently, consistently, and is reviewed often." And, I might add,..."in an environment where the child feels loved." I applaud this book and its approach to language arts for children. A complete grammar text for young students, First Language Lessons for the Well-Trained Mind, Level 2 uses dictation, narration, picture study, and other classical techniques to develop language ability.
