Literature Studies

“So please, oh PLEASE, we beg, we pray, 

Go throw your TV set away, 

And in its place you can install, 

A lovely bookshelf on the wall.” 

-- Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

 

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?

Language Lessons: Spelling, Grammar, and Beginning Composition

“ When you're teaching kids to write, you're teaching them to think. Writing is the window through which all thinking starts.”

--Sheryl Block

 

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 540 different spelling words, complete weekly dictation exercises, and learn basic compositional grammar, giving the foundation needed to be successful writers. Students will build their skills to the point at which they can write a 5 paragraph essay, with strong structure and correct grammar. 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.
