Elementary Literature and Grammar – gr 4-6


This course is primarily literature-based, although we will also implement some basic grammar skills. The Reading 4 curriculum from BJU Press provides age-appropriate selections in a variety of genres, including literature and informational text. Before, During, and After Reading sections emphasize comprehension strategies and literary skills. Biblical discernment is an important component of the program. We will also read two novels together as a class (one for each semester): Sarah, Plain and Tall and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. The novels will be purchased by the instructor.

In addition to the literature covered in the course, we will also learn some basic, yet important grammar skills taken from Jessie Wise’s First Language Lessons. This book will not need to be purchased by the students.
