Has anyone used Master Books Language Arts? Language Lessons for a Living Education or Elementary English Grammar? I’m debating between that and SW with ULW.
Yes, me! 🙂
I am using Language Lessons for a Living Education level 2 this year with my dd8. We are enjoying it. The format is different from SW and ULW, in that it is a colorful workbook with various types of lessons. It is a “fill in the space” type of workbook. It rotates the types of lessons, so that the first one is a story (which continues each week). You read some, and your child reads certain highlighted parts. There are lessons with copywork; there are spelling lessons that go over certain sounds; there is a grammar lesson that talks about punctuation or pronouns, for example. There are writing lessons where there is a prompt for the student to orally tell you their story, draw a picture, and then write one sentence from their story.
I like that it breaks down the tasks/skills into bite-size pieces and we’re not doing the same thing everyday. I have used some of SW and ULW with my two older boys and she was just not ready for that. I thought this would be a nice, gentle introduction for her. And she loves workbooks!
There is also a schedule in the front of the book where you can date and/or check off each lesson as it’s completed. I do fill that in, but we just do the next lesson each day.
Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any specific questions.
Thank you. I’m thinking SW and ULW will be good for the older boys, but for the 2 younger ones, I’m wondering if they’ll like the colors and workbook style better.
