Memoria Press Classical Composition Book I, Student Book Fable Stage: Discovering the Skills of Writing

Continue to use the classical approach in all of your subjects- - including writing! Memoria Press' Classical Composition program has updated the teacher's manuals that go along with their updated versions of author James Selby's classic homeschool curriculum.

Designed for students as young as 4th grade, Classical Composition teaches students the fourteen composition skills known as the progymnasmata. This Fable level is the first level in the program and provides the first of 14 stages. Through a number of re-writing, re-narrating, and re-composing exercises based upon the original fable, students will practice expanding their vocabulary, rewording ideas, expanding and reducing descriptive details, varying their sentences, and proofreading. Short entertaining fables are chosen for their instructive value and children's ability to easily imitate them. The focus on imitation as a tool to good writing uses an emphasis on variation and paraphrasing to provide the basic first step towards mastering writing skills.

Lessons are designed to take 30 minutes per day and to be completed after 8 working days. Easy-to-use worksheets include the fable at the top, and plenty of line space for students to fill in their variations, plot components, outlines, and paraphrases. The final draft should be completed in a different notebook.

4th Grade is the recommended first grade to complete the series; however it may be used by older students. Syllabus plans are included for both students in grades 4-6 and grades 7 & up. 103 pages, softcover.
