The Caterpiller — Ian’s YouTube Performance

This kid cracks me up. He insisted on the half naked fireman get-up for his movie.

This is his first ‘official’ memorization assignment.

We are following First Language Lessons for the Well-Trained Mind: Level 1 (Second Edition) (First Language Lessons).  I have an older version that includes the first two years and I went through the whole book with Lily. We just started it with Ian.  It is an awesome home schooling resource.  It focuses on:

  • memorization
  • story summary and narration
  • grammer (they memorize several list like all the prepositions)
  • copy and dictation

It is all in short interactive lessons.  Super easy, literally you read from a script.  It was so complete, especially with the grammer that I learned lots of stuff … that I managed to graduate from college without knowing.

I really recommend these books.  Even if you aren’t home schooling it would be a great tool to use in the evenings.  15 minute for most of the assignments max and it is fun interactive learning.
