Hi, I just attended my first home school convention and have a couple questions relating to Language Arts and Grammar. They are new to me so my questions may sound stupid.
Are Language Arts and Grammar the same thing? Or is Grammar just a piece of Language Arts?
There were 2 things I liked when I was there but I wasn't sure if they were covering the same topics as one another: LLTAL and Pathway Readers (and workbooks).
I'm going to use a program called ABeCeDarian to teach Phonics due to special needs in our house. I need something after that but I don't know what I would look for as the next step. Do you understand what I am asking? I have ages 5.5, 4.5 and 14 mos at home so I am not in a rush. I'm just trying to learn and understand the big picture of the next few years to some degree.
Please let me know if I need to clarify exactly what I mean. I'm a little confused myself if you can't tell already! Thanks for your input. I loved the conference and am amazed at all the boxed packages...tempting, but not right for us at this point.
