For as long as I can remember, I have loved to read. Reading has brought me so much joy throughout my life and there are titles I have read over and over again. Because of this, it is of great importance to me that my children are exposed to a wide variety of good literature. I was thrilled to receive a copy of the Grade 3 Lightning Lit Set from Hewitt Homeschooling Resources to use and review with my eleven year old son.
About Lightning Literature
I received both the Student Workbook (consumable) and the Teacher's Guide to use in my home. We purchased the first two books required in the program which were both under $10 each. I did look up each of the required books for the entire year of study and they were all around the $10 mark and easy to find for purchase - with the exception of one that is now out of print which I found used copies of.
I did select a level slightly below my son's current grade in school, as I knew we were going to be using this during the spring/summer months which I try to keep light. We have not done a formal literature study program before, so I felt the grade 3 set would be a good fit for our current needs.
The Lightning Lit series uses real books in their entirety, rather than some reading programs that use excerpts from books, for the lessons, There is a good variety of titles selected and some classics are even included each year. The program focuses on strengthening reading and writing skills and instilling a love for reading.READ MORE
