  3. Question

    My 2nd graders are still in the learning to read stage, and I am just now starting this classical method with them. Should I start with Level 1 or skip it and jump in at Level 2? I also have 4th graders that are not quite working at a 4th grade level. Should I ease in and start at Level 3 or jump in at Level 4? Thank you. 🙂

    • For the 2nd graders, it would be best to start at Level 1. For the 4th graders, they can start at 3 or 4, depending on how much grammar they’ve had before. Start them with 3, and you can always speed up or skip ahead if they have already mastered a given concept.

  4. Question

    We are really enjoying this series and using it along with Writing with Ease. My oldest in currently in Level 3. We will probably use “Sentence Composing” before going on to Writing with Skill, but I assume those focus mostly on composition and not grammar. Do you have suggestions for a grammar program to follow FLL level 4? Thank you.

    • Yes! You should check out our new grammar series “Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind.” It is designed to be used by students who have completed First Language Lessons 1-4 or a similar grammar curriculum.

  5. 5 out of 5 Quick, easy, comprehensive

    These lessons are quick and easy but very comprehensive. I feel that this provides the perfect foundation for early writing.

  6. Question

    Is there an assessment to determine which level your child is ready for?

    • Wendy, there isn’t an assessment, but for First Language Lessons, for most students, we recommend starting at the child’s grade level. So a 1st-grader, for instance, could start with level 1, and a 3rd-grader could start with level 3. Concepts from previous years are thoroughly reviewed before moving on to new concepts.
      I hope that’s helpful. If you have a more detailed question, the folks at [email protected] can help you. Thanks!

  7. Question

    Is an previous phonogram/reading knowledge necessary for this program?

  8. Question

    The discription says for Kindergarten, is that accurate? Or is level 1 actually Grade 1?

    • It varies with the child…you could begin this program, at a slow/easy pace, as early as kindergarten, but most families begin in first grade.

  9. Question

    Is this a consumable workbook style program or nonconsumable? If nonconsumable are there workbooks I could purchase that go with the program?

    • The first 2 levels don’t require any consumable materials. A lot of the work is done orally, and the rest is done on your own paper. So this textbook can be re-used year after year for multiple students.

  11. 5 out of 5 Which one do I have?

    I understand originally it was published with both levels together, how do I know which version I currently have? We enjoy the short lessons and the poems chosen are adorable l.

    • If you have a book with a cover photo of a little boy looking at a butterfly in a flower-pot, then you have the original edition with Levels 1 and 2 together.
