Language Arts & Literature 1

 

The first grade Language Arts course focuses on helping students become strong readers and capable writers. Instruction in reading takes place at home and in the classroom as students read from the Pathway Reader Series and complete exercises in Reading-Thinking Skills. During the year, students are introduced to a variety of beautiful poems which they memorize and recite. Susan Wise Bauer books’ First Language Lessons and Writing with Ease develop the students’ grammar and writing skills using the classical methods of dictation, narration, and copy work.
