First Language Lessons ~ Poem Printables

First Language LessonsGoing into last year homeschool convention I had no intention of changing my language curriculum that I was using with the girls.

None.

After wandering the vendor halls for hours, sitting in on a session by Jessie Wise, and then thumbing through the book repeatedly I took the plunge and bought First Language Lessons Level 1 and First Language Lessons Level 2 to use during the upcoming school year with our girls.

The verdict after over half of the school year? We are loving it! These books  have found a permanent spot on our shelves and will definitely be used with our boys in the years to come.

First Language Lessons Level 1 and First Language Lessons Level 2 each have 100 lessons per year that are simple and completed orally with your child. Each lesson takes between 5 to 15 minutes, so there were days when we completed more than one lesson.

Throughout both of the first two levels there are poems for children to memorize. To make it a little more fun, I made some poem printables to go along with our lessons.

When we’re finished learning a poem, the girls put a copy of them into a folder to refer back to later. They have also been helpful to use for copywork exercises. Each one is 8 1/2” x 11”. Here’s a list of the poems included in the printables:

  • “The Caterpillar”  by Christina G. Rossetti
  • “Work” by Anonymous
  • “Hearts Are Like Doors” by Anonymous
  • “Days of the Week”  ~ Mother Goose rhyme
    adapted by
    Sara Buffington
  • “The Months” a Mother Goose rhyme
  • “Mr. Nobody” by Anonymous
  • “The Goops” by Gelett Burgess
  • “The Year” by Sara Coleridge, adapted by
    Sara Buffington
  • “The Little Bird” a Mother Goose rhyme
  • “All Things Beautiful” by Cecil Alexander

Hope these help you out with your language studies!

In case you are working on First Language Lessons 3 or First Language Lessons 4, you can also find poem printables for both of those levels as well!
