How to Teach the Course
Students complete the first four LightUnits of Learning to Read before they begin this course. Use I Can Write Manuscript for more penmanship practice. For more Language Arts drill, use the Extra Practice Sheets. The Phonics Cards illustrate spelling and phonics rules.
Sunrise Language Arts 100 correlates with Christian Light’s Learning to Read and Sunrise Reading 100, but fits well with any phonics-based learning-to-read program. This thorough, phonics-based program teaches grammar, punctuation, communication skills, writing, spelling, and penmanship.
Concepts in the LightUnits are taught in small increments and reviewed over and over again to ensure mastery. Wall charts illustrate spelling and punctuation rules. Children who need extra penmanship practice will enjoy the beautifully illustrated workbook I Can Write Manuscript as they practice copying letters, numbers, words, short sentences, and simple poems on the theme of animal babies and their mothers.
Extra Language Arts practice sheets are available for those who need more drill.
The Teacher’s Guide is required to teach this course. It includes lesson plans, answer, spelling word lists, scope and sequence, alternate LightUnits tests, and more teaching aids.
