Reviews - What do customers think about Spectrum Language Arts, Grade 6?
Very good book, but not enough grammar Jul 7, 2009
Spectrum Language Arts is very traditional, in that it teaches the parts of speech, diagramming sentences, etc. I was only looking to use the grammar and punctuation section to help my soon-to-be 5th grader over the summer. I choose this book, which is one grade up, because the grammar section seemed stronger than the 5th grade version.
The book has clear, easy-to-follow instructions, causes children to actually *write* complete answers. The book mixes up the learning format enough that kids will not get bored with the workbook. One day you're circling, one day you're editing text, another day you're writing sentences, one day you're matching terms to examples.... It's got a very engaging style, and the full color pages help the books look fresh.
I also bought the Spectrum Writing for 5th grade and was THRILLED. Both books are written in such a way that a self-directed student can easily follow and learn from them. There is enough information in both to be used as a full homeschool Language curriculum, imo.
Great book Feb 26, 2009
We love these books. We have had one ever year. We use it often and it has helped out to understand things we are having a hard time with in school
Excellent resource for teachers and home-schoolers. Sep 9, 2008
These colorful exercises helped my students come to a better understanding of gerunds, colons, semicolons, and double negatives. It contains an answer key. I will purchase other resources from this series.
Language Arts 6 Updated Dec 7, 2007
Well I'm not impressed. The original ones had a great layout and study pattern that built on past topics learned. The origs had 72 lessons and built on past grade levels in order, total pages 149. The revised has chapter 1 grammar; parts of speech & sentences, chapter 2 mechanics; capitalization & punctuation, chapter 3 usage; total 136 pages. I doubt we'll be able to use this edition except for here and there pages. Sorry.
Very good! Mar 8, 2007
The Spectrum series has very good information and activities in it. I have used the upper elementary grade books in middle school, and the middle school grade books for high school. The Spectrum series is highly recommended.
