Your children will love learning language arts naturally...
With BookShark's Language Arts program, your students will enjoy learning with the "natural method." They will learn good writing from good models, just the way many great writers (such as Benjamin Franklin) taught themselves. Daily experience and practice are the keys to this well-paced schedule of connected writing activities. As your students progress through Levels A-F they advance from basic writing to analysis, while reinforcing what they learn from the books you read together.
Option to purchase the Level 1 Readers:
- Put Me in the Zoo
- One Fish, Two Fish...

If you are unsure which reading level is right for your child please check out our Quick Reading Assessment.
Since our Readers are integrated with our Language Arts program, we recommend that you choose the same level of Language Arts as Readers. Please note that many young students read at a higher level than their written Language Arts ability. We recommend choosing the lower level of the two until their abilities catch up. You may also look through the Scope & Sequence and the 3-Week Samples for our Language Arts Instructor's Guides before you make a final decision on which level to choose. Feel free to use the assignments in the 3-week samples as a way to evaluate which Language Arts level matches your student's skills.
