An Easy-to-Use Literature Program with Hands-On Activities
Lead your student to understand and love literature with this in-depth, Catholic program written by homeschooling parent Roxanna Hebson! The easy-to-use program consists of a non-consumable GUIDEBOOK and a consumable NOTEBOOK which guide the student through five classic works of children’s literature: Little House in the Big Woods, The Father Brown Reader, Minn of the Mississippi, The Winged Watchman, and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. (See list of recommended editions here.)
The Treasure Trove of Literature, Level 1 includes:
- Reading comprehension questions
- Literary elements: setting, character, plot, and theme
- Literary devices and figures of speech (alliteration, irony, similes, and more)
- Character analysis
- Weekly questions for individual or group discussion
- Weekly study of a positive character quality and a saintly role-model
- Weekly games, projects, and activities
- Final project for each book
Designed for independent study—no prior literary knowledge needed by the parent! To encourage independent study skills, all instructional material in the Guidebook and Notebook is directed to the student. Removable parent resources include a complete answer key, a detailed guide to discussion questions, and a guide to each major character in the books. The program is designed to be completed in one year, but it could be completed more slowly. Level 1 is recommended for fourth grade, but it could also be used with older students, up to seventh grade.
