Lighted Lanterns: A Catholic Language Arts Program Level A - Manuscript Edition -eBook (EPUB*) 

This one-of-a-kind program is very gentle, very Catholic and able to be tailored to your own child's needs.

Being very busy homeschool moms, we wanted the best of all worlds: Catholic, integrated, little to no preparation, able to be tailored, all in a convenient, tidy, and very attractive workbook. We thought perhaps others might like something that fit that bill as well.

Since this is an integrated approach, they naturally cover spelling, gentle grammar, vocabulary, penmanship, oral narrations, creative writing, picture studies, and more.

Lighted Lanterns Level A has been geared towards children who are already familiar with printing words, approximately a Grade 2 to grade 3 level. Level A has 8 units consisting of 4 lessons per unit for a total of 32 lessons.

The first through third lessons of each unit contain:

  • copywork selections
  • lesson suggestions
  • tailored spelling lists
  • poetry
  • quotes/interesting facts
  • places for dictations
  • editing practices
  • character and faith-building stories
  • places for narrations

The fourth lesson of each unit takes a different approach. They consist of:

  • Picture Studies with questions to aid in observation skills
  • Word Play -- fun activities with words
  • Writing with Purpose -- in which the student learns to do various types of writing, such as descriptive writing, directions, poetry, letter writing
  • Hands-On -- your child will be making mini-booklets, cutting, pasting, illustrating, and more!
