Literature Units

In our home we take a literature based approach for a large portion of our language arts program.

As an avid reader it is very important to me to share my passion for reading with my children, and I feel by continuing to read outloud I have been able to do that. Sometimes I simply read a book to my children, but many times I plan literature units to go with the book.

In the upcoming school year I have the opportunity to teach at our local homeschool partnership. I will be teaching “Learning Through Cinema- Elementary” and “Learning Through Cinema- Middle School”. I am so excited to be able to share our approach with the homeschool community. Below I have listed the units we will be covering during the 2017-2018 school year.
