I purchased this book to use with my 2nd grade son. We are almost through the school year, and this book gets two big thumbs up from me! I have three older boys, and have used Shirley, Michael Clay Thompson, and other series over the years (this is my 13th year to homeschool). They were all good. However, First Language Lessons is fabulous. The material is presented in short lessons that do not overwhelm a 7-yr-old, and feature frequent review of past topics. Heavier lessons are interspersed with lighter lessons. The lessons are often fun. My son was not a confident writer, nor was he familiar with much grammar when he began 2nd grade, but now dictation isn't scary, he has several poems memorized, and he is confident with parts of speech.
Thanks to this curriculum, grammar is my favorite part of the day!
You don't need prep time. I just stand in front of the white board with the book in my hand and follow the script. You get the hang of it really quick AND I am actually learning grammar with my kids!!! My boys love the chants to memorize verbs, etc.
This is my second year with FLL and it is a fabulous curriculum! I have the benefit of having moms who have used it and can look back, as I am looking ahead, and reassure me this is a very good curriculum. As a homeschool mom I find myself breathing a sigh of relief with this well thought out approach to classical learning. I also use Writing With Ease, another great curriculum.
