First Language Lessons for the Well-Trained Mind, Level 2
If you absolutely don't know how to teach English, this oral grammar program is for you! Each lesson is scripted, meaning you are told what to say and do, and also told how the student should respond to your questions. Very simple! One hundred lessons, a full school year worth, are included. Your student will learn language ability through such classical techniques as dictation, narration and picture study. Your student will learn about parts of speech, homophones, synonyms, antonyms, letter writing, contractions, punctuation, poem memorization (with such poems as ""All Things Bright and Beautiful") and more. Combine with Writing With Ease for a complete grammar and writing curriculum! Level 2 is a 2nd grade level.
