Welcome to Day 29 of the 2018 Back to Homeschool Giveaway Extravaganza! Today’s sponsor is Apologia {again} and they’re back with another fabulous giveaway! Check it out…

Enjoy a complete language arts curriculum for your 4th-7th grader:
Apologia is giving away their  Readers in Residence and either Writers in Residence Volume 1 or Volume 2. $178 value With both Readers in Residence and Writers in Residence, you will have a complete language arts program for your student. Recommended ages is 4th – 7th.

This is a reading comprehension, literature, and vocabulary program. It may be used alone or in conjunction with the Writers in Residence™ series. Together the two programs provide a full year of language arts. In Readers in Residence™, while studying some of the finest books in children’s literature, students learn how to do the following:

  • understand the author’s craft, choices, and intentions
  • recognize the literary elements authors use to create fiction and nonfiction
  • make inferences from the details in the text plus their own prior knowledge and experience
  • decode the meaning of unfamiliar words from context clues
  • build a rich and varied vocabulary
  • identify and understand figures of speech such as personification, metaphor, and hyperbole
  • notice how expert writers employ the conventions of the English language (punctuation, capitalization, grammar, and usage) to achieve clarity

Writers in Residence is a writing-focused language arts program. While completing high-interest writing assignments, students learn about sentence structure, the parts of speech, and the conventions of the English language for punctuation, capitalization, and usage. This meaningful context shows students how skill and understanding in the language arts enable them to create clear, engaging stories and essays readers want to read.  This curriculum provides a biblically-based framework for kids to think about language and communicate effectively in writing.

Writers in Residence includes:

      A complete writing curriculum that integrates grammar, punctuation, and capitalization

      An easy-to-use All-In-One Student Text and Workbook

      A helpful answer key with directions, checklists, and evalutation rubric for every writing assignment that takes the guesswork out of evaluating your child’s writing
