Within the course, students will:

  • Master state of being verbs, action verbs, and possessive nouns

  • Identify abbreviations, proper use of punctuation marks, spelling, root words, compound words, and suffixes
  • Create their own dictionary with words learned through the course

  • Develop skills in using the dictionary and a thesaurus for spelling and vocabulary- building
  • Explore the Scripture, parts of letter writing, copywork, and more!

Language Lessons for a Living Education is uniquely effective in teaching communication skills and the Gospel. In Level 4 of this award-winning series, each quarter has five stories, two picture studies (one of which is Bible-based), and two poems (one of which is a Psalm). Using the spelling words and the Dictionary Worksheets, students will create their very own dictionary as they move week by week through the material.

  • DAY 1: Focus on a short story, poem, picture study, select Bible verses
  • DAY 2 & 3: Writing topics such as grammar and punctuation
  • DAY 4: Reading from 101 Favorite Stories of the Bible, Scripture copywork and memorization
