Basic Language Skills (Teacher Guide)
Teacher Guide for the 1st grade language arts course! The vital resource that provides all assignments from the Basic Language Skills course, which includes: Instruction guidance and worksheets for Not Too Small at All by Stephanie Z. Townsend and Charlie and Trike in the Grand Canyon Adventure by Ken Ham with Karen Hansel. A Create You Own Dictionary! component every Friday where students are given words to write out and illustrate, primarily from the books they are learning to read. OVERVIEW: Students who have completed our Foundations Phonics course (or any other phonics course) will be ready to start this course. Students will practice reading while reviewing trickier vowel sounds. They will also practice writing words and sentences. The foundations of writing are also laid through picture study, fostering an awareness of details and the ability to communicate them. This course was designed to be flexible. There are two books used as the foundation for this course: Not Too Small at All by Stephanie Z. Townsend and Charlie and Trike in the Grand Canyon Adventure by Ken Ham with Karen Hansel. The third book, A Special Door by Ken Ham, is a fun book meant to encourage a student's desire to read, and is to be read near the end of the course as a reward for all the student has accomplished. FEATURES: The 18-week calendar provides 4 daily lessons with clear objectives and worksheets, as well as a weekly dictionary activity. The 36-week calendar provides guidance for 3 days a week.
