Language Arts for Elementary: Key Skills: Don’t let big words like figurative language and declarative sentences worry you! Language Arts for Elementary: Key Skills helps students understand key skills for grammar and writing and can be used with students in Grades 2–4. The course starts with the basics of a sentence and moves progressively to more advanced skills, with definitions, examples, and an easy-to-follow format. Extra worksheets are included for additional practice as needed.
Story Skills for Reading Comprehension: How are story skills like a Model T Ford? Once you’ve taken a story – or a Model T – apart, you can put it back together “without any parts left over.” Story Skills for Reading Comprehension takes your student through multiple stories, examining the parts which make it interesting. Students will learn about characters, conflict, plot, and point of view, among other skills. Those skills, in turn, lead to a deeper comprehension of the story being read.
For Struggling Readers:
Reading Remedies: Dr. Glavach has created an in-depth remediation plan for parents to use with struggling students of any age. Reading Remedies is broken out into units with specific, targeted skills for different learning styles. Text-based lessons, audio files, printable materials, and book lists are included.
