Complicated grammar frustrates little kids (and moms). They don’t need to know about nouns and adverbs, they just need to know how to write good sentences.
That’s why I was so happy when I discovered New Language Exercises for Public Schools by C. C. Long. Here was a way I could teach my early readers to express themselves on paper and skip the tears and frustration!
I wrote about this extensively in this post:
I even included a free download of levels one and two, with a promise of working on levels three and four and offering them at a later date.
…that later date has arrived!
I (finally) finished these upper levels AND found the time to put them in print. Now you not only can have these books for free in printable PDF format, but you can own physical books!
And they are so adorable! My daughter took images from Graphics Fairy and created covers and little flourishes that add interest throughout each book.
