Lightning Lit: Grade 6
Grade 6 continues the Lightning Literature method of teaching intelligent reading, composition, and grammar using great children’s literature. Students will be introduced to new authors, exciting stories, and different cultures and experiences. The workbook will ask questions on the reading, teach grammar and mechanics, and introduce composition techniques. Each week, students will write something of their own to keep their composition muscles exercised and growing. Four poetry units are included in the workbook citing authors such as Melville, Longfellow, Tennyson, Poe, Frost, Dickenson, Kipling, Bronte, Yeats, and Whitman.
