Enrich your kids’ minds with these fun and practical classes!

What We’ll Do for 16 Weeks

We incorporate wonderful homeschooling practices into our classes:

  • Copywork: The primary goal of copywork is for a child to internalize the mechanisms of good writing—penmanship, spelling, grammar, and style—by copying a perfectly composed sample. The more a child transcribes, the more proficient she will become in the English language.
  • Narration: This simple act of retelling trains the students’ mind to be attentive to the subject matter and to assimilate the material before expressing them eloquently. This is writing in an oral form.
  • Poem Memorization: Susan Wise Bauer, author of The Well-Educated Mind: A Guide to the Classical Education You Never Had, argues that memorization builds into children’s minds an ability to use complex English syntax. The student who memorizes poetry will internalize the rhythmic, beautiful patterns of the English language. These patterns then become part of the student’s language store, those wells that we all use every day in writing and speaking. Without memorization, the student’s language store, Bauer says, will be limited: memorization stocks the language store with a whole new set of language patterns.
  • Audiobooks: Benefits to regularly listening to audiobooks, including: 
    • Increasing reading accuracy by 52%
    • Increasing reading speed, expanding vocabulary and improving fluency
    • Teaching pronunciation
    • Improving comprehension by 76%; and
    • Increasing test scores by 21% when engaged in multi-modal learning.
