Reviews - What do customers think about Spectrum Language Arts, Grade 2?
Not like it used to be Jul 29, 2009
Each topic has a two-page spread. For instance, today my daughter is studying statement sentences that start with a capital letter and end with a period. There are two pages of practice for this; one is rewriting the sentence, and one is editing a paragraph that has no capital letters or periods, with two questions at the bottom of the page which kids can answer with their own written statements. Both pages are about flying kites, and there is a color picture of a kite.
While these exercises are fine and will give kids practice in punctuating statements, they are not interesting at all. In the past, Spectrum workbooks have had witty puns or silly poems or adventure stories that kids could punctuate or find nouns or whatever the assignment might be. What happened to the clever writer that used to make these workbooks? Learning language should not just be about mechanics, but also about appreciating the various uses of language: puns, poetry, narrative... These new workbooks communicate to kids that language is pretty much just boring preparation for standardized tests.
Good for home-schooling for bi-lingual student Oct 30, 2008
In China, I'm home schooling my 7 year old daughter in English, as she learns Chinese in a primary school. This series is excellent.
Good for Grammar Sep 5, 2008
We homeschool and this is a good grammar review or intro. I did find that it is not an all inclusive "Language Arts" program. I also like more of a spiral method where the concepts are reviewed more, and this is not like that. The topic is introduced and then you move on with a review at the end of the unit. I found at this age they need the repetitiveness more. If you are using it with another curriculum or as a review it is great.
Spectrum Language Arts grade 2 Sep 28, 2007
This is an excellent wkbk for a homeschooled child or just extra practice for others. I use it everyday and know that by using it I'm following 2nd grade standards like I need to be. Easy reading, easy directions, big type not all bunched up on a page. Many skills discussed.
