Master Books’ beautiful language arts curriculum, Language Lessons for a Living Education Level 5 will help guide your student toward mastery of reading, grammar, and vocabulary, as well as the mechanics of communication and writing. Utilizing observation and reading comprehension through poems, stories, and real books as the foundation, your student will continue to build paragraph writing skills.

Level 5 incorporates picture study, memorization, grammar and punctuation, spelling and vocabulary, observation, and application through the student creating his or her own stories through pictures, sentences, paragraphs, poems, proverbs, and letters. This course also develops reading and narration skills. Writing stamina is built up gradually. By the end of the course, the student should be able to comfortably write various types of paragraphs.

Within the course, students will:

  • Understand the interactions of the eight parts of speech
  • Master state of being verbs, action verbs, and possessive nouns
  • Be introduced to different types of conjunctions, compound sentences, and clauses
  • Identify syllables and practice spelling rules
  • Identify abbreviations, proper use of punctuation marks, spelling, root words, compound words, and suffixes
  • Learn to create well-written paragraphs based on structure and comprehension
  • Develop proficiency in the structure of book reports
  • Develop skills in using the dictionary and a thesaurus for spelling and vocabulary building
  • Explore the Scripture, parts of letter writing, and more!

Language Lessons for a Living Education is uniquely effective in teaching communication skills and the Gospel. Each quarter has five stories, two picture studies (one of which is biblically based), and two poems (one of which is a proverb). Using the spelling words and the Dictionary Worksheets, the student will create his or her very own dictionary as he or she moves week by week through the material.

A helpful and detailed daily schedule:

  • 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
  • DAY 5: Creating your own dictionary with a focus on spelling and vocabulary

This course is designed to foster a partnership between student and teacher, with the student gradually taking a lead role. Allowing the student’s growing abilities, stamina, and interests to set the pace will allow his or her confidence to strengthen. This confidence is the key that will help unlock communication success.

Scope and sequence, a daily course calendar, and additional learning resources including independent reading lists, spelling words, practice sheets and more are included to help your student master basic concepts. Reviews are also incorporated throughout the course to help them understand and apply what they learn.

Gentle approach
Review by Eileen
What works for one kid doesn’t always work for another. My son did well with this books; my daughter does well with the grammar concepts, but the narrating stories back, poem and picture studies she is not too fond of. She aced all her spelling tests! So I would say we liked using it for her about 80% of the time.
My kids' favorite!
Review by Ellen
I've been using this curriculum for my kids since finding it in second grade. This is my kids' favorite subject, thanks to Master Books! It's easy for my kids to follow along and complete on their own, so it's easy on the teacher, too!
Just what we were looking for
Review by Heather
We bumped around from different language arts curriculum for several years never finding quite the right fit for us. My son loves to read, but doesn’t care for writing/composition. While at our annual statewide homeschool conference I came across the Masterbooks booth the year they had just come out with Language Lessons Level 5. I purchased it for our 5th grade son and we have both really enjoyed it so much. It is truly just what we were looking for: not too overwhelming, open and go style, just the right combination of all the language arts components all while being Biblically based.
Open and go
Review by Ashley
I love that my twins can understand most of the work without needing extra assistance while I work with their younger siblings.
Good Continuation
Review by Elizabeth
My son has completed all the prior books in this series. This continues to help children learn grammar and to be a good writer. I love this series and this book is no different. It is helping my child become a good writer.
Best Language Arts Curriculum
Review by Kareth
We love the gentle, open and go approach of LLLE. Level 5 is definitely more challenging yet the gradual approach in this program makes it feel developmentally appropriate. My son is now writing longer paragraphs that include more variety and details. I will continue to recommend this curriculum!
The best language arts HANDS DOWN
Review by Tamara
My daughter has used LLFALE for years and the spiral approach is unlike anything I have ever seen. It is gentle but over time it is rigorous! You just don’t realize it until they get to level 6 and you see how much they have mastered through the use of this amazing program.
Loving this series!
Review by Magan
I have used this series from the beginning. I’m pleased with watching the process and now seeing that my child is retaining all the grammar rules.
Loved it!
Review by Jessica
Our family loved this curriculum! So easy to use! From the beginning of the year until the end, I could really tell my son was learning and growing! We ordered grade 6 already for next year! Loved the lesson plans, this was a huge help to me as a newer homeschool mom.
LLFLE is a Blessing
Review by Hannah
I've use LLFLE for my child with special needs for a few yrs now. It's so easily adaptable. My child has grown both in faith and learning since using this. It's gave her more self confidence. An absolute blessing. So sad there are only 6 levels. No other language curriculum compares.
