Does anyone else seem to dread teaching language arts? With all the additional activities, we moms are required to gather supplies and spend an hour each day planning out the day’s lessons. With spelling, reading and writing all wrapped into one, it’s a lot of work for a subject that my kids don’t enjoy anyways. That’s why I was so thrilled when I was offered a first-hand look at Pathways language arts. It’s a fun curriculum that’s being offered by one of my very favorite homeschool publishing companies, Kendall Hunt Publishing.
I received this item for free and was compensated for my time. All opinions are my own and 100% honest.
Pathways Language Arts by Kendall Hunt Publishing
One of the things I love most about Pathways language arts is that it’s as easy for mom to teach as it is for the kids to enjoy. There’s no need to spend hours crawling around Pinterest trying to find fun ways to practice you spelling words. Instead, all the work is done for you!
Instead of focusing on covering as much material as possible, Pathways language arts program helps your kids fall in love with learning. Kids learn to love reading, writing and learning through interesting books, worksheets and by sparking their natural love of learning.
Using broad themes and topics, Pathways language arts grabs kids by their interests and reels them in. Kids will enjoy learning core values while diving into their favorite topics.
Our 5th grader had a blast learning all about Queen Elizabeth I. Through the accompanying book, Good Queen Bess, we learned how she earned the respect of her people, as well as her enemies. She outwitted the system, who wanted her to marry quickly and urged her to find a husband to take over as ruler. Instead, she used her charm and smarts to make the country a better place. She was so popular, they even nicknamed her time as ruler as the Elizabethan Age. Now that’s a great example of a strong woman!
