After homeschooling for a handful of years, I still had not found a language arts that was a good fit for us. So many options over complicated language arts for the early years. Elementary language arts curriculum should be low pressure, fun, and hands on. It should open up a love of learning to create kids who love to read and love to write, not squash their joy by pushing hard on grammar and sentence structure.
That’s when I decided to stop looking and create my own early elementary language arts curriculum…
Rabbit Trails through Literature
Rabbit Trails through Literature has great books as the spine for each lesson. The list of books include many award winners and best sellers to make sure that your child is having quality literature read to them every day. (You can get all of the books in one convenient location inside of my Amazon Storefront!) There are 16 lessons, with each lesson meant to take two weeks, to make a full 32 week language arts curriculum. This curriculum is for all elementary age children, which means that you can use it with multiple children in the same home- saving you time and money!
Literature Based Language Arts Curriculum
Charlotte Mason-inspired and relaxed in method, Rabbit Trails through Literature is rich in copy work and light on grammar. In each lesson your child will write a passage from the book (all on their level!), have Bible verses available for memorization and copy work, learn poetry, have hands on activities, and more. Each and every lessons includes copy work opportunities, a short grammar lesson, some fun added in, and…
Rabbit Trails! This is the most exciting part of the entire curriculum. Within every lesson there will be a fun Rabbit Trail to go down into science, social studies, and more. There will be additional books listed to read through the Library List, more hands on projects, and videos to learn about topics related to the Rabbit Trail.
Rabbit Trails thorugh Literature is now available in two volumes! Each volume is a stand alone curriculum. While they do slightly build on each other, you do not need to purchase them in any order and the volumes do not reflect grade level, as all levels are geared towards all elementary age children. This is the perfect opportunity to see what concepts you’d like to teach in your homeschool and to run with your child’s passions in the Rabbit Trails! Keep reading to see samples inside of both volumes below.

What about a sample schedule? I created Rabbit Trials through Literature to not have any boxes to check- I want homeschool families to make Rabbit Trails fit into their everyday lives without stressing about what lesson needs to be done each day. However, I know some people like to have a lesson all laid out for them so they can envision how the curriculum will fit into their homeschool. I have attached a file that shows a sample schedule for one lesson to give you an idea of how I personally lay out the lessons in my own homeschool.
