Language Arts: Choose Your Course

Let us help you choose your language arts course!

The Good and the Beautiful Language Arts courses were thoughtfully and uniquely designed.

  • Preschool through Elementary levels lead the parent or teacher through 120 lessons directly in the course book, eliminating the need for a teacher manual
  • All levels incorporate several subjects into one course, make the learning process engaging while also eliminating multiple textbooks.
  • All levels introduce, practice, and then apply concepts in a spiral approach, ensuring children retain what they have learned.
  • Upper levels are student directed for independent study.

Be sure to administer our Language Arts Placement Test for each of your children!

Placing your child in the correct level is essential to successful learning.

Through careful design, so much good and beautiful learning takes place in the 120 parent-led lessons in the Level 3 Language Arts course. Lessons are engaging for children and academically robust while also optimized to reduce parent teaching time. In just a small amount of time each day, children learn foundational language arts subjects including phonics, reading, spelling, writing, grammar and punctuation, literature, art, poetry memorization and appreciation, and geography. All of this is taught in gentle, natural, and enjoyable ways for the child.


Highlights of this updated edition include:

  • A fun and effective spelling program that teaches spelling rules, spelling principles, spelling patterns, commonly misspelled, words, and more.
  • Our special scaffolding approach to writing meets children where they really are and makes writing achievable. The writing projects are fun and correlated with what the child is learning in art, literature, and geography. It is also our goal to build strong writers without making them melt down or push back with every writing assignment, as so many kids do at this age.
  • Optional videos are included in many lessons. You can use a video to replace the lesson if you don’t want to teach it or need a break. Or you can use the video to reinforce or extend the short lesson.

Check out these exciting updates by purchasing above!
