I recently purchased “Language Lessons” workbooks for all three of my kids from Queen Homeschool Supplies, Inc and I had to write a review about them because they are absolutely FABULOUS! Without a doubt, these are my favorite homeschool purchase of the year!
I have been looking over Queen’s website and receiving their catalogs for a couple of years now, but I never had the extra dollars in my budget to order any of their products…until this spring. I wish I had known how much I would love these, or I would have made room in the budget somehow. All of Queen’s products are created around a Charlotte Mason philosophy of education. Otherwise, would I even be talking about this? I don’t think so! 😉
- picture study with creative writing prompts
- phonics (Little Ones only)
- grammar instruction
- writing activities
The lessons vary day-by-day (other than copywork which can carry on for several days), and they follow a CM philosophy of being short, so there is little opportunity for boredom. Not that I think boredom would even be an issue; my kids LOVE these books! They often ask to do more than one lesson in a day.
There are 12 books in all, and they are written to last an entire 180 day school year. Queen offers a preview of each book on their website to help you decide if you might like them, and where to place your child.
What I love:
- short lessons/Charlotte Mason-y
- gentle introduction
- varied lessons
- complete package (no more running around creating copywork or ordering separate books for grammar/writing)
- picture studies included (these have not replaced our regular picture study, they are just a complement)
- good quality for the price
I will definitely be purchasing these books all the way through high school. If anyone else has experience with these, please leave a comment and let me know what you think.
