The videos do the heavy lifting. All you have to do is go to the daily lesson, click the video’s PLAY button, and observe how your child does.
Also, you must print out the worksheets, and hand them to your child. Then grade them. Every child is different. Try a few trial lessons and see if this is a good fit for your homeschooling or tutoring needs.
Your Role as a Homeschool Teacher:
- Create and monitor the discipline of completing homework correctly and reading assignments.
- Record assessment information from the weekly spelling and/or reading assessment.
- Evaluate your students progress in writing and comprehension skills.
- Encouraging your student to strive for excellence in academics!
These lessons lead students toward self-teaching and evaluation. By the end of grade 3, your student will have made the transition from “LEARNING to read” to “READING to learn.”
The Good Curriculum is a self-teaching curriculum. After grade 3, parents’ responsibilities drop sharply.
Reading, grammar and writing skills prepare students to gain their content information from reading, rather than focusing on learning how to read. The phonics and reading rules that the student learned in English 1 and 2 are reinforced and fine-tuned in this course. The emphasis is on organizing study time to reinforce comprehension and critical thinking about the text.
Students read three children’s classics and seasonal short stories. They learn about poetry. They even write some poetry.
Every lesson includes a grammar review page or writing assignment. The videos can be reviewed as often as needed for drill and practice on high-frequency words, reading comprehension, and grammar skills.
All reading materials are free and on-site.
