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!
Dreams is the fourth 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.
