Spelling | 1 day | 5 hours
Now that your handwriting is accurate and legible, we use your new alphabet skills to show you how to be nimble with bigger symbols--also known as words!
In fact, the 26-letter word that you mastered in Level One (forward and backward, remember) will be the longest word you will ever need to know in English. Good job!
Not only do we look at commonly mis-spelled words, we invite you to bring your own list of personal un-favourites--so we can all master them together!
Punctuation | 1 day | 5 hours
Those funny little marks on the page are not there to confuse you; they are actually the messages writers and readers give each other to play the "rules" of the writing game. Plus, we have a song about them...
You will also see how in today's world of digital expression, there is latitude for using puctuation to reflect your style and taste--kind of like your personal writing fashion statement!
Dictionary Skills| 1 day | 5 hours
It's time to become even more symbol nimble!
In this workshop you explore the three parts of every word:
how it looks,
how it sounds, and
what it means.
Who knows? This may even trigger a new fondness for weird words. At the very least, we invite you to contribute to our Symbol Nimble Hall of Fame--where creativity rules!
Reading | 1 day | 5 hours
This level shows you how to read and write in a new way--with your mind, your imagination, and every cell in your body!
By thinking AND feeling your way through words and sentences, English will be easier and more enjoyable to read and write.
Math Prep Plus| 1 day | 5 hours
