It’s Wednesday, January 25, 2017, and time for Language Arts at ClickSchooling!
Age Range: 7-13 (Grades 2-8, with parental supervision)
LessonSnips offers free multi-subject lessons and worksheets for teachers in downloadable pdfs. The lessons can be tweaked for homeschool use.
For the purpose of today’s review, we’re focusing on the Language Arts portion of the site – but you’ll be happy to know there are “Lesson Snips” for Math, Science, and Social Sciences as well.
When you get to the Language Arts page, you’ll see a menu of the available lessons covering topics such as:
- Identifying Parts of Speech – including individual lessons on verbs, irregular verbs, nouns, proper nouns, pronouns, personal pronouns, intensive and reflexive pronouns, articles, prepositions, adverbs, conjunctions, adjectives, infinitives, gerunds, participles, direct and indirect objects, interjections and more.
- Reading – including identifying vowel sounds and sounds in word families, reading comprehension, sequencing, understanding plot, identifying the problem and solution, framing questions (who, what, where, when, how, and why), understanding narrative poetry, rhyming, and more.
- Spelling, Writing, and Vocabulary – including basic sentence structure, capitalization, synonyms and antonyms, homonyms, using similes and metaphors, using the right tense, etc.
Click on any lesson and a new page opens with a lesson summary, the objectives, and the suggested grade range.
Click on the “Get Lesson” button to download and print out the lesson and associated worksheets.
NOTE: You must register to access the free materials on the ad-supported section of the site. You can also purchase a membership that will give you ad-free access as well as additional tools and resources.
While there is a “schoolish” quality to these lessons, many of the suggested activities or the subjects covered would interest a vast array of learners and with just a tweak can accommodate a variety of learning styles.
