Product Description

The Life of Fred Language Arts Series is designed for the high school years; it is recommended that books be used in order: Australia, Begin Teaching, Classes, and Dreams. Short and to the point, each contains 19 daily lessons that are rich in the rules of the English Language. Covering grammar (not literature and writing) -as well as the many other facts about other topics Fred always integrates--these books are perfect for those who want to learn foundational English skills through the fun style of Life of Fred.

For those unfamiliar with the series, the texts follow the life of Fred Gauss-a six-year-old math professor at Kittens University who was born on the slopes of the Siberian Mountains-who has many humorous, unlikely, and zany adventures. Informal in tone and approach, these books are designed to engage students in a fun narrative while also instilling a solid understanding of concepts without an abundance of repetitive drills!

Classes is the third book in the four-book series. Nineteen chapters are included. Each is designed to take one day and includes approximately four pages with a "Your Turn to Play" exercise set at the end (which consists of 3-4 questions). Answers are provided on the next page for students to go over themselves after attempting to solve the problems.

This book covers: he overall picture in business, math, football, life, and English, Seven parts of speech, Tense is the Latin word for time, Prepositions explained in 30 seconds, A sentence with 16 prepositional phrases, Adjectives, Three kinds of adjectival errors, Four uses of italics, Simplifying the 12 tenses, Positive, comparative, and superlative forms of adjectives, Proper nouns used as adjectives, Suffix, Using the present tense to indicate things that are always true, Direct and indirect objects, Often the least effective way to teach is to lecture, Nominative, objective, and possessive cases, Simile, Schwa, Auxiliary verbs, Elliptical construction, Formal, informal, nonstandard, and general English, Two ways our brains work, The four emotions (glad, sad, mad, and afraid), Counter words, The three reasons to write, Adverbs, The three parts of mothering, The seven rules for when to double the final consonant when adding the suffix -ed (and simplified down to one rule), Intersection of sets, Less vs. fewer, Infinitive form of a verb as subject, object, adjective, and adverb, Holloware, flatware, and how to set a table, Prepositions at the end of sentences, Euphemisms and minced oaths, Subjunctive, imperative, and indicative moods, Antecedents of pronouns, Nauseous vs. nauseated, Stream of consciousness writing, Hyphens can change meaning, When to hyphenate compound adjectives (the six rules).

    Our family was introduced to Fred because we were not enjoying traditional math...as much as we liked math with Fred we were sure that Language Arts with Fred had to be a winner, too. We were not disappointed. We have all, adults as well as children, greatly enjoyed this series!

    Our children actually read Life of Fred books for pleasure, the stories are engaging and amusing while also teaching. Every day is a new adventure with Fred!

    All the Life of Fred books are well bound and durable. Not needing printed consumables is also a plus. Pencils, pens, and paper are always on hand and much less expensive than printer ink or toner.
