First graders will love our Lively Language Arts 1 course. Starting with the alphabet, homeschoolers will build a foundation that will stay with them throughout a lifetime of communication. Students will learn sound recognition, the building blocks of phonics, vowels and consonants, letter blends, and contractions. Homeschoolers will gain a basic understanding of how letters work together to form short words, serving as a foundation for the next year's study of more complex words.
