3rd Grade SMARTS in Language Arts – Home Educator's Edition


Grade 3 Smart Start in Language Arts: Home Educator's Edition

A Complete Program of Language Arts Instruction for Grade 3

The grade three English language arts programs develops fiction and non-fiction reading skills and broadens writing skills. In a five day week, children work on reading comprehension for three days and writing skills for the other two. For the reading component, one of the five days focuses on a novel study, another is for independent reading and the last is for non-fiction reading skills. Children develop their non-fiction reading skills through learning about how magazines are organized and the types of articles found inside them.

Writing instruction encompasses a variety of activities. These include: handwriting, spelling, punctuation and capitalization, dictionary and grammar skills, paragraphs, poetry, a research report and story writing.

Parents are shown how to teach their children step by step through a detailed teacher's manual with answer keys.

Bullet 3rd Grade SMARTS in Language Arts: Home Education Edition was written specifically for home educators.

Bullet Child is guided by a workbook that teaches fiction and non-fiction reading skills, writing and spelling skills in a sequential order. These are applied in the lessons and reviewed until mastery is obtained.

Bullet Parents discover a simple, effective method of teaching language arts using a teacher's manual. Lesson plans and answer keys are presented in a simple, straightforward manner.
