Chapter 1
Introduction

This chapter presents poems, stories, brief discussions of grammar and writing, and explanations of common sayings and phrases.

The best way to bring children into the spirit of poetry is to read it aloud to them and encourage them to speak it aloud so that they can experience the music in the words. Until children take pleasure in the sound of poetry, there is little reason to analyze it technically.

Most of the stories in this book are either excerpts from longer works or abridged versions of those works. If a child enjoys a particular story, he or she should be encouraged to read a longer version. Several of the novels excerpted here are available in child-friendly versions as part of the Core Knowledge Foundation’s Core Classics series, available on the Foundation’s Web site (www.coreknowledge.org).

Parents and teachers can help draw children into stories by asking questions about them. For example, you might ask, “What do you think is going to happen next?” “Why did one of the characters act as he did?” “What might have happened if . . . ?” You might also ask the child to retell the story. Don’t be bothered if children change events or characters: that is in the best tradition of storytelling and explains why there are so many versions of traditional stories.

You can also encourage children to write and illustrate their own stories. Some children may be interested in beginning to keep a journal or writing letters to friends or relatives — these are both fine ways for children to cultivate their writing skills. Another way to build vocabulary and foster language skills is by playing word games such as Scrabble, Boggle, or hangman, and doing crossword puzzles.

Experts say that our children already know more about grammar than we can ever teach them. But standard written language does have special characteristics that children need to learn. The treatment of grammar and language conventions in this book is an overview. It needs to be supplemented and rounded out by giving the child opportunities to read and write and to discuss reading and writing in connection with grammar and spelling.

In the classroom, grammar instruction is a part, but only a part, of an effective language arts program. In the fourth grade, children should be working on vocabulary and spelling. They should enjoy a rich diet of fiction, poetry, drama, biography, and nonfiction. They should be involved in the writing process, inventing topics, discovering ideas in early drafts, revising toward “publication” of polished final drafts —all with encouragement and guidance along the way. They should practice writing in many modes, including stories, poetry, journal entries, formal reports, dialogues, and descriptions.

For some children, the section on sayings and phrases may not be needed; they will have picked up these sayings by hearing them in everyday speech. But this section will be very useful for children from homes where American English is not spoken.

POETRY

Monday’s Child Is Fair of Face

(author unknown)

Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go,
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
But the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is fair and wise and good and gay.

Humanity

by Elma Stuckey

If I am blind and need someone
To keep me safe from harm,
It matters not the race to me
Of the one who takes my arm.
If I am saved from drowning
As I grasp and grope,
I will not stop to see the face
Of the one who throws the rope.
Or if out on some battlefield
I’m falling faint and weak,
The one who gently lifts me up
May any language speak.
We sip the water clear and cool,
No matter the hand that gives it.
A life that’s lived worthwhile and fine,
What matters the one who lives it?

Fog

by Carl Sandburg

The fog comes
on little cat feet.
It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

Clouds

by Christina G. Rossetti

White sheep, white sheep
On a blue hill,
When the wind stops
You all stand still.
When the wind blows,
You walk away slow.
White sheep, white sheep,
Where do you go?

the drum

by Nikki Giovanni

daddy says the world is
a drum tight and hard
and i told him
i’m gonna beat
out my own rhythm

Things

by Eloise Greenfield

Went to the corner
Walked in the store
Bought me some candy
Ain’t got it no more
Ain’t got it no more
Went to the beach
Played on the shore
Built me a sandhouse
Ain’t got it no more
Ain’t got it no more
Went to the kitchen
Lay down on the floor
Made me a poem
Still got it
Still got it

Dreams

by Langston Hughes

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

Afternoon on a Hill

by Edna St. Vincent Millay

I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
I will look at cliffs and clouds
With quiet eyes,
Watch the wind bow down the grass,
And the grass rise.
And when lights begin to show,
Up from the town,
I will mark which must be mine,
And then start down.

The Rhinoceros

by Ogden Nash

The rhino is a homely beast,
For human eyes he’s not a feast.
But you and I will never know
Why Nature chose to make him so.
Farewell, farewell, you old rhinoceros,
I’ll stare at something less prepoceros.

I went back to school for special education after many years in a different job. These books not only helped me to do very well on the Praxis exam for elementary content knowledge, they were a big help in preparing for resource classes.

For Mothers and Others who have been away from the classroom for many years, these books are great refreshers.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book!!!!!!! 29 janvier 2009
Par Mom and Teacher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book is great if you homeschool or want to help your child during the summer. The topics that this year covers includes: the Middle Ages, African Kingdoms, China, The American Revolution, Early Presidents and Politics, The Human Body - Circulation and Respiration, and Meteorology.

FYI: If you want to use it for homeschool, Hirsch has also made a teacher handbook. The Teacher Handbooks provide background about language arts, history and geography, visual arts, music, mathematics, and science. Each handbook has been written to look like the Core Knowledge Sequence. For each section in the Sequence, there is a matching section in the handbooks. The handbook is not necessary, but having the teacher guide probably will save you time.

I have a special needs child that I plan to go through this book with her to help her. I wished I had it when my other children were young. It has a lot of information and so far we are enjoying reading through it.

I wish we had found this when my children were in Kindergarten. This book in particular has a good history section, though the language section needed supplementing (I didn't have the workbook). The Core Knowledge series is fantastic, especially when you're looking for a good base for a curriculum. Be sure to use the textbook with the workbook, as both complement each other and fill out any weak or empty spots. My kids especially liked the idea of having everything in one book, including poetry and stories, art, and music, along with the math, language, and science. Overall, very comprehensive (especially when you use both books together), and encourages critical thinking and exploring. I've recommended this numerous times to other home school families, especially those just starting out. And don't forget, Core Knowledge also has a helpful website for parents and teachers, which I found very useful, as well.

Par Newbie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This series of books is very comprehensive regarding all subjects that should be taught in each grade. I'm learning new things, and my grandchildren are able to keep up with a higher learning standard than what they are getting in school. Highly recommended!
