What is Kaleidos Language Arts?

Kaleidos is a language arts curriculum by grade level with lessons that combine literature, writing, spelling, grammar, speaking, keyboarding, and computer-technology.

Language Arts with a Love for Literature and Writing

Each grade has thirteen great classics that have withstood two of literature's toughest tests: kids and time.

Adventure, life-changing dilemmas, and thought-provoking conflicts that distinguish classical literature from popular literature do more than just strengthen reading skills. Literature deepens an individual's ability to recognize different perspectives and apply changeless principles to changing dilemmas. Literature enables students to think more abstractly at a younger age and empathize with other people.

Students can earn a certificate for reading ten of the thirteen classical books during their academic year.

What About Writing?

Twice weekly lessons from Write On, The Kid-Friendly, Mother-Pleasing, Gentle Way to Learn to Write provide students with a wide variety of different types of writing activities. Student models in the book will boost your students' confidence in their ability to tackle each objective, and motivates them to write about the subjects of interest to them.

Each year a six-week module allows a student to work on their large research report without the additional efforts of the other aspects of language (grammar, spelling, etc.) This module can be inserted anywhere in the school year that is convenient for you.

What Other Subjects are Included?

The weekly lesson plans include include:

Special Projects

To add variety and to put some of those computer and speaking skills to good use, five or six special projects are listed each year. This gives the students the opportunity to make PowerPoint presentations, develop interactive time-lines, create a short skit, make a news broadcast, or other project to boost creativity and share their written work.
