Lighted Lanterns Level B moves a step up from level A in difficulty.

Level B has 9 Units consisting of 4 lessons each, and follows the same pattern as Level A. — Read what one homeschool facilitator has to say about the Lighted Lanterns L.A. program: "Lighted Lanterns: A Catholic Language Arts Program is a child centered, multisensory approach using a variety of beautiful visuals, teaching strategies and engaging exercises. A well laid out and comprehensive program, it does not require hours of preparation, but lends itself easily to extensions of lessons and further self directed or family experiences. All contained in one beautifully bound book - very portable! The rich Catholic content includes stories, poems, scripture, biographies of the saints and interesting facts. Using the Natural Method of learning as a model, Lighted Lanterns is adaptable to a range of grades and ages, with modifications made appropriate to the level of the child. I certainly wish I could have used this resource when my children were young; what a wonderful way to grow and share our family faith.....
