In sixth grade, homeschool students will do away with textbooks entirely and begin to learn directly from classic novels.  By reading and comprehending these great works, students will learn more than they ever could from a textbook.  We will study such acclaimed children's literature as Rolling Thunder, Hear My Cry and A Wrinkle in Time. All the while, homeschoolers will build their understanding of language with several spelling lessons as well as grammar lessons in pronouns, writing paragraphs, adjectives, and more.
