More than anything else, this course is designed to encourage the love of great books and great stories as an essential preparation for future courses in the language arts (Language Arts 1-4 and The Great Conversation). The primary purpose of the course is to give 4th and 5th grade students the opportunity to explore ideas and utilize their imagination in the context of class discussion. Discussions will incorporate biblical concepts and principles, thus encouraging students to understand truth, goodness, and beauty in the context of God’s Word.
Students will read books such as Little House in the Big Woods, Hellen Keller, and Black Beauty. Please see the current book list before purchasing.
