Lively Language Arts 2 builds on last year's study of phonics and introduces more complex word structures through a study of word blends, contractions, vowel sounds, long and short vowels, dipthongs, silent letters, apostrophes, prefixes and suffixes, and synonyms and antonyms.  Homeschoolers will begin recognizing more advanced words and will begin developing a more extensive vocabulary.  This course will prepare students for third grade English, in which they will learn how words work together to form sentences.
