Language Arts Course Set
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.

The child follows the colored dots in the order of the rainbow, which makes it easy for children to correctly learn cursive with little to no help from parents. About 85% of the course focuses on teaching cursive and 15% of the course on cementing correct print formation. If children have no experience with cursive writing but are ready for it, they should start with this course.
The Good and the Beautiful handwriting courses include images, artwork, poetry, Bible verses, and quotes that support high character, faith, nature, and creativity. Drawing activities are incorporated throughout the course to make handwriting more enjoyable and increase fine motor skills.
