Along with Charlotte Mason, Serl's work is considered one of the more lasting classics on Home Schooling. "Primary Language Lessons" deals with word usage, punctuation, capitalization, abbreviations, contractions, letter writing, memorization and recitation of poetry, retelling or rewriting of brief narratives, copy-work, and dictation. Overall emphasis is upon proper word usage in both spoken and written communication. Beautiful artwork reproductions (in black and white) are used as the basis for a number of lessons as are myths, legends, fables, fairy tales, historical vignettes, biographies, Bible stories, and nature lessons. This work is intended for second and third graders.-Print ed.
