Pippi Longstocking via Language Arts
*thorough grammar, touching on everything it seems. I appreciate the preposition study, especially.
*extra "fun" activities. We didn't do many of these, but I'm tucking them in my memory for a rainy day, maybe for review.
*mostly oral comprehension questions. Because there is SO MUCH to do, I thought this gave Ella a break from writing too much. One or two questions were written down in a notebook I required for her, however.
*unique to take a book and extract so much learning from it....very comprehensive
*slightly daunting to think of reading the same book for more than a month. whew! that is why we skipped the last week/review.
*a lot of vocab, imo. a LOT.
*for a fast reader, this type of study may not be the best. my Ella is a fast reader, so I had to find other books for her to read, of course, other than this and whatever else we were working on for history, etc.
*worth repeating- a week per couple chapters is A LOT to do. I do wish the guide was only 4 weeks long, instead of 6 or 7.
*We will be doing another study despite how long I think they are.
*Ella learned a lot, and I love the layout. I think it is a good thing to include in her LA this year.
*Worth the investment!!!! I'd give it 4.5 stars out of 5. :)
