Between classes, students will:
1. Read (or listen to) the assigned reading chapters before each class discussion. A reading guide will be provided to help with comprehension and preparation.
2. Complete the provided grammar practice worksheets to reinforce the grammar material
3. Complete various writing tasks
A copy of "Sarah, Plain and Tall" by Patricia MacLachlan "The Magician's Nephew" by CS Lewis A notebook or folder to keep assignments and worksheets Pen or pencil and paper for jotting notes or writing important thoughts A writing journal for writing practice and brainstorming Occasional simple craft materials (colored pencils, markers, etc) These will be noted in class and in the classroom the week before they are needed.
Parents may contact me to discuss any requests for grades or for completion verification.
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
All literature is chosen from a generally recognized collection of age-appropriate, often award-winning books. Parents are encouraged to research any unfamiliar books to be sure they are appropriate for their learner. 

Here is a synopsis for the two books in this unit:
"Sarah, Plain and Tall" by Patricia MacLachlan
"Sarah, Plain and Tall is a story of fulfillment and love.  Sarah comes from Maine to a simple pioneer homestead in response to an ad for a wife and mother.  The child Anna narrates the tale of Sarah's arrival and the uncertainty everyone feels about whether she will stay.  Interwoven themes of longing and belonging are revealed through the sparse but vivid language." (American Library Association)  NOTE: This story references the death of the mother during childbirth several years earlier. The death is treated gently as background information. The story takes place on a farm and there is mention of the death of a farm animal.

"The Magician's Nephew" by CS Lewis:  "Narnia...where the woods are thick and cool, where the Talking Beasts are called to life, a new world where the adventure begins. Digory and Polly meet and become friends one cold, wet summer in London. Their lives burst into adventure when Digory's Uncle Andrew sends them hurtling to...somewhere else. They end up in a wood between worlds, encounter an evil enchantress, and find their way to Narnia, newborn from the Lion's song before they finally return home. This was the sixth book written in The Chronicles of Narnia, but now stands as the first book chronologically in the series."
