Kathy5 Stars Out Of 5Language Arts the Natural Learning WayMarch 31, 2014KathyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Learning Language Arts through Literature is based on the educational philosophy of Dr. Ruth Beechick and her natural learning method as outlined in her books, "The Three R'," "Language and Thinking for Young Children," and "You Can Teach Your Child Successfully." The curriculum is authored by the late Debbie Strayer, a homeschooling mother, teacher, author and public speaker.
Learning Language Arts through Literature Yellow Book is a comprehensive language arts curriculum which teaches phonics, spelling, reading, grammar, composition, research and study skills, higher order thinking skills, creative expression, games, and penmanship. The author has chosen "real books" which are the back bone for the curriculum's lessons. "Real Book" selections include: "Madeline," "The Courage of Sarah Noble," "Meet George Washington," and "The While Stallion."
Literature passages from "real books" such as "The Other Kitten," "The Tale of Jeremy Vole," and "Bible Stories to Read" are utilized for copy work and dictation. Learning Language Arts through Literature incorporates choral reading, drama, illustrating, oral presentation, pantomime, poetry, puzzles, and riddles into the daily lesson plans.
The instructors guide is comprised of easy to use lesson plans spanning a period of 36 weeks. Each lesson is made up of the following components: New Skills Taught, Materials Needed, Scripted Lesson Plan, Higher Order Thinking Skills, Answers, Examples, Diagrams and References to the student activity book. The Skills Index is an easy to use reference for the teaching parent. Assessments allow the teacher to evaluate the student's progress. Review activities follow the lessons to provide the student with additional skills practice. Placement tests are available online at the Common Sense Press website.
As a homeschooler, I have perused several language arts curriculums. I cannot praise this curriculum enough! Learning Language Arts Through Literature receives an A+ from this homeschooling parent!

Kari5 Stars Out Of 5We love this curriculum!October 9, 2012KariQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a wonderful well-rounded curriculum. Some things are challenging, but never too tough. A must-have for the mom's that are a little concerned about teaching grammar. This eases you in nicely to the grammar, even for those of us that never had grammar in our education growing up. The spelling words are great. The writing passages are neat. The books to read are a bit simple for my daughter, but she reads plenty of other books, so it's ok if her school books are not extremely challenging. Will stick with this curriculum for several years to come!

I like it because it requires just about no work ahead of school, and it's so easy to use.

Q: Do I need other curriculum if I order LLATL 3rd? i.e. do I still need curriculum like Easy Grammar, Spelling, Word Wise? It seems to me that this book has had everthing, but I am not sure.
This curriculum incorporates reading, vocabulary, spelling, grammar and writing. You would only need to supplement it with additional resources if you want to dig deeper into that particular topic.
