Rabbit Trails Through Literature: An Elementary Language Arts Curriculum

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 is an elementary language arts curriculum that uses quality literature as it's spine! Charlotte Mason-inspired and relaxed in nature, this curriculum is the perfect language arts to add to your homeschool. #rabbittrails #charlottemason #languagearts #languageartscurriculum

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. There are 16 lessons, with each lesson meant to take two weeks, to make a full 32 week language arts curriculum.

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.

What about a sample schedule?

“The perfect addition to our family!”

Rabbit Trails Through Literature has been the perfect addition to our family learning. It has be a joy to watch my two completely different style of students learning together. Rabbit Trails Through Literature has strongly encouraged us to view a book as a jumping off point for a worldwide of learning. The added benefit of having scriptures for memorization and copy work has been a true treasure. This curriculum has given my family the needed relief from checking the box all the while still providing age appropriate learning opportunities.

“For the first time my kids did not complain doing their schoolwork.”

I received a sample of Rabbit Trails Through Literature and what a blessing it was! The guide itself is beautifully designed and just lovely to look at. I love that this curriculum is centered around quality books that captured both my children and my interest and helped facilitate wonderful discussions instead of focusing on busywork. The lessons were gentle and relaxed enough to keep my children’s attention and the rabbit trails were so fun and enriching. For the first time my kids did not complain while doing their schoolwork, and as a mom of 9 that is huge!
