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.

Simple and clear lessons. The level was overall good for my son, but the some vocabulary words were a challenge, but I'm glad he can learn more.

Review by kari
this curriculum is amazing! the gentle approach has been amazing for my son who has a difficulty with ELA. I love how each year builds on the last and reiterates the concepts. I am so thankful they have come out with higher levels too now that I will be able to use as my child grows!
Would give more than 5 stars if I could!
Review by Callie
We absolutely loved level 5 of Language Lessons for a Living Education. My daughter has now completed levels 4 and 5. I’ve watched her truly grow into a gifted writer and communicator by working with this program. We are looking forward to continuing our journey with Master Books!

Overall I love the series. Just wish they would integrate spelling more than it does. I know can add more just would like to see as part of lesson.

Review by Jessica
I think im just as excited as my kids to find out what will happen next in the stories in llfle
Review by margarita
LLFLE is our favorite language arts. My son doesn't dread it and says its a lot of fun. We also do the word shapes for extra spelling practice. The writing is perfect especially since he use to struggle.
Review by Jessica
My daughter loves this curriculum. It includes a lot of drawing assignments which bugged her at first, but she has come to enjoy it. I enjoy the thoughtful questions and it has spurred great discussion.
5th grader doesn't dread LA
Review by Rebecca
Level 5 is to the point in what they need to know without being over complicated. It also incorporates the Bible in the reading! It also has a weekly spelling list included.
