A one-semester course for grades 4 or 5 and up
This curriculum is designed for teachers and students to actively engage with each other and with the grammatical concepts in each lesson, using language skills—reading, writing, speaking, and listening—along with physical movement, songs, and chants. Through Well-Ordered Language’s unique, creative, and orderly method of analyzing the grammatical functions of the parts of speech, students will find the mastery of grammar achievable, meaningful, and delightful.
Full program includes:
- Well-Ordered Language Level 2A (Student Edition) Students will not merely be able to identify the parts of a sentence, but also understand how words behave in a sentence. As students see the components of language (the parts of speech) unfold before them throughout the Well-Ordered Language series, they will be able to apply their knowledge, gathering and arranging words to express their thoughts clearly and accurately. Well-Ordered Language Level 2A (WOL 2A) will introduce students to:
- Four kinds of sentences (declarative, interrogatory, imperative, exclamatory) and principal elements
- Predicate verbs and direct objects
- Predicate nominatives
- Predicate adjectives
- Predicate review

- Well-Ordered Language Level 2A Teacher’s Edition The teacher’s edition includes the entire student text and also features:
- Pedagogical guidance and tips embedded in the text and collected in an appendix
- Extensive explanation of and guidance in Well-Ordered Language’s unique analytic approach to grammar and diagramming sentences

- Answers for all student exercises
- Suggested schedules for teaching Well-Ordered Language Level 2A
- The Well-Ordered Language Level 2 Songs & Chants (for 1-3 students) are lively tunes and chants that will help students learn grammar terms in a pleasurable and memorable way. These unique and delightful recordings feature a blend of musical genres and implement repetition, chanting, and sing-along phrases to aid in achieving memorization. You will likely find students singing these catchy songs outside of class! The songs and chants are also an excellent resource for those who want to brush up on their grammar.
