Hey, Mom, are your beginning readers frustrated when it comes to writing and punctuating simple sentences? I know mine have been. For years I searched high and low for a grammar program that would help my children write well from the very beginning of literacy.
Well, I have been using this old book with my children with great success, but arranging the lessons in our composition books was a bit time-consuming, especially for the littler ones. There was also the problem of the copperplate script used, and some of the language was a bit archaic.
Then the idea struck me; why not take the lessons and rework them into a printable, with specific places to write the sentences, etc. I knew it would be greatly helpful, both to myself and others, but I just didn’t have the time (or so I thought).
Funny how necessity can help you find the “extra” time you need, isn’t it? In this season of our lives I’ve needed our homeschooling to be even more automated, so I took it upon myself to take Long’s Language and reformat it for our children.
After prayer (of course) I was given an amazing way to simplify the whole process of putting the lessons into a format that is both simple for little children and easy to use for moms. It has taken me quite a few hours to formulate the first two levels, but I believe the end result is marvelous and will save me and my children beaucoup time (and frustration) in the long run.
Eventually, I hope to be offering these levels (one, two, three, and four) as physical books (along with The Lesson Book, levels one, two, three, four, and five), but until then I just couldn’t keep them to myself!
Today I am offering levels one and two FREE for you to download and print to use with your children!
Here are some sneak peaks into the interiors:
I staggered the pages so they could be easily printed and hole-punched and placed into a three-ring binder, or you could hand one page out at a time if that is easier for you.
I hope you enjoy these, and I hope they bear much fruit for you and your children!
