Reviews - What do customers think about Intermediate Language Lessons?
A real gem! Jul 22, 2007
After 18 years of homeschooling 9 children it takes a very good book to get me excited enough to review it! I love the Charlotte Mason method, but sometimes lacked the ability to keep all of the facets organized.
This book is designed for 4-6th grades with the answers written on paper. It has picture study, oral narration, excellent written narration and composition assignments, outlining, copywork, recitation of beautiful poetry, dictation, grammar and more. The illustrations are lovely. I have even used it with an older child who lacked the fundamentals.
It is challenging for kids who struggle with writing, but it's the exact right kind of challenge. Gentle, but moving them toward excellence. It's easy to modify on the fly for an advanced or struggling child, and takes no teacher preparation if you are familiar with the terms narration, dictation, picture study, etc.
I use Primary Language Lessons in 2-3rd grades first and follow up with this. I buy one for each of my children using the program because the copywork sometimes takes them awhile. A thorough program for this grade, minus all the busywork.
Wonderful book! Jul 2, 2007
I would highly recommend this book. To be fair, I have not used it yet, but have gone over it thoroughly. It is very gentle in its approach, and yet meaty at the same time. I plan on using this book for my daughter while she is in grades 4-6. It has 300 lessons that are broken into 3 sections, so 100 lessons a year. Plan on doing three lessons a week, every day. Some of the lessons take more than one day to go through them. I went through and made a schedule of the first 100 lessons and it worked out just about perfect to finish in a year. I looked at English for the Thoughtful Child and First Language Lessons for the Well Trained Mind. Neither of those books hold a candle to this one. I would hightly recommend it!
I agree! this is great Language for 5th-8th Apr 28, 2007
I have both this book and the Primary Language Lessons from the same author. They are both great books! The Intermediate is wonderful! I am very picky about Language books, and this one meets all my criteria. Love it!!
Great Language for 5th to 8th grades Mar 24, 2006
Even though this is suppose to be for younger kids (4th grade), I bought it for my 8th grade son and it is just right for him. The lessons include writing and speach. There is not an answer key because you don't need one you will be able to do language lessons with just this book. I would plan to take more than one year to finish it though.
Excellent for Teaching Grammar/Language Sep 27, 2000
I am using this for homeschooling my seven year old. She is a bit advanced with English, this is maybe at a 3rd/4th grade level book. It helps the children deduce for themselves the grammar rules using logic/reasoning based on several different sentences or passages. They read bits of literature and use these to write their own stories from different points of view. Example: Lesson 2, the story of the Stone in the Road. The children retell the story from the point of view of the stone, the king, the people, the bag of gold, etc. There is copywork, picture description (both oral and written), memorization, narration both written and oral, tenses, composition, paragraphs, later it gets into debate, discussing proverbs, and things like that. It is very thorough with the exception of homonyms and homophones. Suggest The Reading Teachers Book of Lists as a supplement. Back to basics, classical education. Wonderful.
