Grammar Stage, Unit 1 for CHOLL Modern is up!

You can see a preview and purchase it for download here.  This file contains Lessons 1 – 6 for Grammar Stage (Teacher Pages and Student Pages for both levels are included).  I’ve updated the graphics and cleaned up some typos.  It’s on sale right now for $5.95.  When I publish Unit 2, the price for Unit 1 will go to the regular price of $9.95.

I’ve retired the old file (Unit 1, Part 1) that contained Grammar, Logic, and Family since I won’t be getting to Logic or Family in the near future.  I’ll be starting work on Grammar Stage, Unit 2 shortly.

Grammar Stage, Unit 2 will include (subject to change):

  1. Lesson 7: Robert Louis Stevenson (selected poems)
  2. Lesson 8: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (selected poems)
  3. Lesson 9: Kenneth Grahame (The Reluctant Dragon) and Beatrix Potter (selected stories)
  4. Lesson 10: H. G. Wells (The Time Machine)
  5. Lesson 11: John Ciardi (selected poems)
  6. Lesson 12: Review Unit 2

About Laura

I've been homeschooling since 2005. I have six children (born 2000 - 2012). We are eclectic in our approach with a bit more Well-Trained Mind philosophy over anything else.

    I love this! I looked through the samples and it’s just exactly what I’ve been hoping to find.

    I do have a question about the books. Since these are grammar stage lessons, I would have expected books that grammar stage students can read, yet you’ve chosen books that have been leveled for middle grade. (See to find the level of each book.)

    Heidi, 8.2
    Arthur Conan Doyle, 7.0 to 8.8
    A Little Princess, 6.0

    So my question is: Is the child supposed to read the book himself, or is an adult supposed to read it to him? Or are your lessons meant for gifted readers? I just love what you’ve done, but I’m a little confused about the disconnect between the age/reading level of the students, and the choice of books.

      I’m using the list under Grammar Stage in The Well-Trained Mind. In some cases I use an adaptation (A Little Princess, Sherlock Holmes, and Heidi are all adaptations). If no adaptation exists or if the original text could be read by a 4th-grader (target level for Modern), I use the original text, with the understanding that parents can help out for those books. Thanks for your question! 🙂
