First Language Lessons uses classical techniques of memorization, dictation, and narration to develop your child’s language ability in the important, foundational years of language study. The text covers a full range of grammar topics, including parts of speech, punctuation, sentence diagrams, and skills in beginning writing and storytelling. Optional end units provide practice in dictionary use and letter writing.
Scripted exercises provide a flexible framework for each lesson. The innovative question-and-answer format makes grammar concepts perfectly clear.
All the teaching material you need including scripted dialogue and suggested student responses for:
85 Lessons covering Grammar and Composition
10 Lessons on Writing Letters
5 Lessons on Dictionary Skills
Optional follow-up activities for lesson reinforcement

Are your grammar skills a little rusty? If you didn’t have the benefit of a classical education that included instruction on how to diagram sentences (like the education your children are getting -those lucky ducks!); don’t fret! Stay a few steps ahead of the kids and be able to answer all their questions by adding The Grammar Guidebook and The Diagramming Dictionary to your library. They’re a great resource for all things grammar and the kids will get use of them in the coming years when they’re trying to write those college essays (Ack! It’s coming sooner than you think)!
