Learning at Home

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul,with all your might. And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart; you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates." - Deuteronomy 6:5-9

Learning Language Arts Through Literature is a complete language arts program for first grade through high school.
Integrated Language Arts skills
Using an integrated approach to teaching, students learn the skills appropriate for each grade level in the context of quality literature.
Real literature
Reading real books instead of basal stories makes reading more attractive to the student. This creates a deeper understanding and generates greater interest in grammar, writing mechanics, vocabulary, spelling, and other language skills. The goal of any language arts program should be to equip the student for a lifetime of communication through the written and spoken word.
All levels are written for a 36 week school year. Grades 1-8 include a Teacher’s Book written in a conversational format making it easy to use with little or no preparation time for the teacher. Student Activity Books are available for the 1st - 8th grade. All levels include review activities and assessments.

This Complete Writer series gives you everything you need to teach clear, concise writing to students in grades 1-10. There are two stages to the program.
Writing With Ease (four levels) teaches elementary students how to transform thoughts into coherent paragraphs.
Writing With Skill (three levels) adds many other skills for middle and high-schoolers, such as outlining, research, citation, and the construction of full-length essays in history, literature, science, and other subjects.

Some of the High School Science is out of print. Dr Jay Wile is in the process of rewriting the high school science curriculum. As soon as I know more I will share the replacements here for you.

Our children are bombarded daily with competing messages. Every song, movie, book, TV show, blog, and game is full of ideas – ideas about God, people, truth, beauty, and right and wrong. Not all of these ideas are true. Some are deceptive and even destructive.
Because it is more important than ever that children learn to discern the truth, Apologia has partnered with Summit Ministries to bring the What We Believe series to your family.
The What We Believe series is an outstanding way to teach children the essential beliefs of the Christian faith, but it’s so much more! With this beautifully illustrated Bible-based curriculum, your children will learn to use Scripture as the perfect lens through which to view the world around them and stand firm in the truth. Featuring engaging stories, creative notebooking, and fun activities, this four-part series is presented in a conversational style that makes the study of God’s Word exciting and memorable for the whole family!
