Our Language Arts Homeschool Curriculum

Fischer loves trips to the library, listening to stories and audiobooks (he sat through the Chronicles of Narnia series, as well as the first book of Little House on the Prairie)…but language arts is Fischer’s weakest subject due to his language disorder, so a stronger structured curriculum in this area is extremely helpful. He’ll be working on phonics blends, as well as working on reading & writing through his curriculum, working on reading easy readers, as well as picking a book to listen to during family read aloud time (such as Mr Poppers Penguins). The main curriculum we are using is Masterbooks Language Lessons for a Living Education 1 (we bought the bundle last year for $75 I believe, pictured here). Masterbooks seems to be super popular in the homeschooling community, but I did decide to gravitate away from it for everything but this particular subject because it felt there was a lot of “busy work” and sitting at the table filling out boring worksheets.This past year we had done Masterbooks K and Hooked on Phonics, while the summer we supplemented with a laid-back focus on boosting reading confidence. We really didn’t enjoy Masterbooks K, we are hoping we’ll settle in with making this new one work more, filling in the gaps where we find it empty.

Happy Homeschooling!
