This is what we deem our "Better" option for Literature in 3rd Grade. This option utilizes the "You Teach" method, which is a term we have coined for traditional, parent-taught homeschooling.
In this course, students will read great literature and continue to work on their phonics fundamentals as they read aloud and read on their own. Students will improve their reading skills through written and oral comprehension exercises and engaging projects. Their vocabulary will be expanded through the application of contextual clues and use of the dictionary. Students will learn to apply a Christian worldview as they examine qualities of characters in stories and recognize those worth emulating. They will learn to identify different genres of literature as they read a variety of styles, such as Charlotte’s Web, Homer Price and Alice in Wonderland. Most importantly, they will continue to increase their love of literature.
