What is the boy looking at? He is looking at a butterfly. "Butterfly" is a noun. We learned the definition of a noun last lesson. Let's say it together three times: A noun is the name of a person, place, thing, or idea. Is a butterfly a person? Is it a place? Is it a thing? Yes, a butterfly is a thing. Butterfly is a noun because it is the name of a thing.

The best of traditional learning in a fresh, new format. A complete grammar and writing text for those first two all-important years of study, First Language Lessons for the Well-Trained Mind uses copy work, narration, dictation, picture study, and other classical techniques to develop the young student's language ability.

  • Scripted lessons give the teacher direction and confidence.
  • Original, clear illustrations relate the lessons to the student's own world.
  • Simple, focused learning goals build a strong foundation for achievement.

  Easy and Comprehensive

I like this book because it has all the information for the teacher, it presents lessons through delightful poems and stories, and it is varied but also consistent and progresses in difficulty at a good pace. As comprehensive as a textbook but not as dry as one. I recommend it.
