Introduction to the History of Language
The Nine Parts of Speech:
Please note that the Language Arts Elementary Manual I should precede the other Language Arts Manuals. The Language Arts Elementary Manuals III & IV, however, may be done in whatever sequence makes sense to the children and teacher.
This is a wonderful manual for Elementary work with the parts of speech. The manual starts with the 5th great lesson, then proceeds to a history of language,which is great information for a teacher to have and refer back to. 'After that the manual goes through each part of speech covering key experiences, then exercises presented in the grammar boxes. Each part of speech is covered thoroughly. I really like that it includes games and extensions along with anecdotal stories. The material is presented in a clear and concise manner in easy to understand text. Very thorough.
