Seasider Posted July 4, 2012 Share Posted July 4, 2012 DD is coming home after doing K & 1st at a local private school. I have been looking at MCTLA and believe it will be a great fit for her. In addition, she will do Spelling Power, some writing with an outside tutor to meet her at her level of ability, and transition to cursive writing. Of course, lots of reading, no real program, just interest led. Do you add copywork and dictation to the MCTLA, or is there something in that program to cover the same skills/accomplish the same goals? For the past two years her classroom day has begun with "journal" work. She has come into class with something - the date or a short sentence - written on the chalkboard. She copied the words, then added an illustration. It would be easy for me to continue that practice for her. I just wondered if it would be redundant. And, it wouldn't really cover dictation. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and suggestions with me. Am I leaving anything out in the language arts department? Before I know it, it will be time to start schooling. I want to be ready!
