Child Reading in the Grass

Literature Studies

“The more that you read, the more things you will know.

The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

— Dr. Seuss

 

If you appreciate beauty and the gift of language, then you will want to give this series of literature classes to your child. We have thoughtfully chosen this literature from the best books- those books that create memories and stimulate imagination while teaching life lessons. Children will be asked to read these books, either by themselves, with an audiobook, or with their parents. During class, we will have fun exploring new vocabulary and discussing the characters and stories. Books give us the wonderful opportunity to live vicariously, taking risks, making decisions, and following paths to see where they will lead, without experiencing the real consequences. What better way is there to learn about people and choices than to read, read, and read some more?

First Semester

  • Imagination

  • Kindness

  • Animals

  • Family

Second Semester

  • Bravery and Adventure

  • Wise Choices

  • Determination

  • Thoughtfulness and Compassion

Language Lessons: Spelling, Grammar, and Beginning Composition

“My spelling is wobbly. It's good spelling but it wobbles

and the letters get in the wrong places.”

-- A.A. Milne, Pooh.

 

You’ll be amazed at the strides your children will make in their spelling, dictation, penmanship, and compositional skills as they progress through our Language Arts series. Each year, students will study 450 different spelling words, complete weekly dictation exercises, and learn basic compositional grammar, giving the foundation needed to be successful writers. We will distribute worksheets and composition assignments to be completed throughout the week and stored in your child’s binder in preparation for your portfolio review. TTK Language Arts classes are challenging and fun, leading your child to greater success in all their subjects!

Note: Though this series is planned to progress in difficulty throughout the year, students are welcomed to join in mid-year. We are happy to customize the experience for each student.

Science

Let the children be free; encourage them;

let them run outside when it is raining;

let them remove their shoes when they find a puddle of water;

and when the grass of the meadows is wet with dew,

let them run on it and trample it with their bare feet;

let them rest peacefully when a tree invites them to sleep beneath its shade;

let them shout and laugh when the sun wakes them in the morning.”

~ Maria Montessori
