Homeschoolers will learn how sentences are formed from nouns, verbs, contractions, prepositions, and more.  The parts of speech are the focus of the first semester's study, along with a review of last year's material.  We will learn about complete sentences, fragments, run-ons, and compound sentences, ensuring that students are able to write properly.  Homeschoolers will study punctuation, paragraph structure, grammar, and different ways to express their ideas using a variety of sentence types.  This course will serve as a foundation that will prepare students to learn about how to improve their writing ability next year.
