Students will be doing a phonics program, or practicing reading skills. They may do simple daily copywork, no more than five or ten minutes a day. Every scheduled reading is narrated orally. History at this phase, while chronological, also consists of stories of people who will come up later, creating a familiarity with famous characters in history. Foreign language study consists of songs and/or stories.
