When I first began looking for a language arts curriculum years ago, I wanted to find something that would encourage a love of words in general. Drill worksheets have their place and work well for some children, but I wanted something different that was more true to our delight-directed learning style.

I looked for something that would help my daughters love reading, writing, and have a positive attitude toward the written word. Simply put, I didn’t want them to dread grammar, spelling, and diagramming sentences that can often take the life out of language arts.
What is Learning Language Arts through Literature?
Learning Language Arts through Literature is a homeschool curriculum that covers spelling, grammar, writing, vocabulary, and reading all in one. It not only simplifies the process of language arts for children, it makes it easier on homeschool parents. And it does it all with great books as the foundation.
Learning Language Arts through Literature, or LLATL as it’s commonly referred to in homeschool circles, is available in beginner elementary levels all the way through high school. The series is color-coded rather than by specific grades, which also helps when you’re trying to get rid of the public school mindset of grades by age and focus on maturity and ability instead. Of course, ages and grades are used as a guideline to choose a level so you aren’t shooting in the dark either. Just keep in mind that it’s flexible. I think that’s a good thing, too.
