For the language arts portion of the unit, you can read to your child, or they can read independently. If you have not read, or finished, the Kalevala, this would be the unit to do so. If you completed this epic tale, then we suggest you get a copy of the epic Old English poem called Beowulf. Background info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beowulf
