English language arts is the overarching title given to a variety of learning subjects, including spelling and phonics, reading and comprehension, and writing and grammar. Here are some ways to integrate ELA learning in your homeschool.
Homeschool moms have their hands full! The good news is it is easy to introduce your littlest ones, your toddlers and preschoolers to literacy concepts in just minutes and moments a day by conversing and observing with them.
This week I’ve fallen in love with word links (also called word ladders, word golf, or doublets): games that change just one letter at a time to get to a completely different word. The game of word links were created by Lewis Carroll in 1877.
My son, although a very strong reader, did struggle with vocabulary as a first and second grader. There were so many words he simply has not encountered yet. Word ladders are a great way to practice reading, decoding and encoding words. Strawberry is now an early reader, so they are a perfect challenge for her.
