Taking up where Volume 1 leaves off, Volume 2 adds phonics instruction and simple copywork. Done with nice, large print to copy and large line spaces for the beginning reader/writer--another thoughtful touch in a stellar program.

Five- to Ten-Minute Daily Lessons
Straightforward, child-friendly lessons provide 180 daily opportunities to teach:

  • Phonics instruction
  • Simple copywork
  • Picture studies
  • Introduction to the alphabet
  • Poetry
  • Story appreciation
  • and more!

    About the Language Lessons Series:

    Charlotte Mason: Learning in Context
    As soon as the review copies of these books arrived, I was smitten. This is the finest implementation of the Charlotte Mason method of instruction I have ever seen. If you are new to home education, the Charlotte Mason (1842-1923) name may not be familiar to you. A British educator who devoted her life to improving the quality of children's education, to Charlotte Mason, language arts skills consisted of narration, the child telling back a story; copywork, the transcribing of a well-written piece of literature as handwriting practice; and dictation, which is spelling and grammar taught within the context of rich language instead of static lists.

    From Theory to Ready-to-Use
    Sandi Queen has done an excellent job of combining those lesson essentials, and even if she had stopped there it would have been a fine program. But instead, she takes the series from satisfactory to exceptional by adding delightful flourishes that include picture studies with full-color paintings, basic phonics instruction, poetry appreciation and writing, creative writing, and much more.

    Full-Color Paintings Make These Books Sparkle
    It is the gorgeous reproduction of notable paintings that will first catch your eye. True to the Charlotte Mason philosophy, the picture studies are based on classic works of art, introducing the child to the paintings of great artists, encouraging him to study them by asking pertinent questions, and then asking for a narration of what he has observed.

    Very Short Lessons Cover Lots of Material Easily
    Likewise characteristic of the Charlotte Mason approach, each lesson takes a scant five to fifteen minutes a day. This increases a bit with age, but is never as time-consuming as you will find in the more staid programs typical of government schools. And Language Lessons doesn't try to do everything every day, which alleviates the tedium associated with other language arts programs. I know many mothers who struggle under the multiple pressures of parenting and educating, to say nothing of their responsibilities as wives and Christ-followers. But I don't know any mother who is too busy to use this program. Each book is a large, consumable, perfect-bound paperback, containing 180 lessons, and in full color.
