In Lively Language Arts 4, homeschoolers will move from their study of grammar rules into actual composition techniques.  Now that students have learned how to write, we teach them how to write complex sentences using a variety of tenses and other writing conventions.  We will spend time focusing on particularly troubling verbs that often confuse students.  We will read Anne of Green Gables and begin assigning oral reports.  We will also expose homeschool students to the art of poetry this year.  As a corollary, students will improve their handwriting skills.
