One or two curriculums recommend the Emma Serl Language Lessons, Primary and Intermediate.
Well I can’t find a freebie of Serl’s Primary Language Lessons but I have found this one; SHELDON’S PRIMARY LANGUAGE LESSONS.
Update Also found this: Lessons in Language for Primary Grade with some good little narration exercises of a Charlotte Mason kind.
Emma Serl’s Intermediate Language Lessons is avialable. I think you’ll find the publication date is more likely to be 1896 rather than 1996 🙂
