      Not what I was expecting

      I was very excited when ordering this, but it was not at all what I was expecting. I don't know exactly what I was expecting, but this certainly was not it. This might work for some kids, but my kids did not like it at all and neither did I. I would recommend trying to find someone who has this so you can look through it before you spend the money on - it may be everything you are looking for, but then again (as in my case) it may not. This is the 2nd curriculum I've tried - luckily my kids are early elementary so no major issue. I'm finding I am more successful simply figuring this out on my own borrowing books from the library and simply covering the very basics of reading & writing. I'll have to find something more in depth soon, though...

      This is the perfect curriculum for my daughter who is just emerging from kindergarten work.

      The review in the beginning is a bit simple for her level but as we moved on I felt very confident that she would be getting a full spectrum of ELA with this curriculum.

      I would recommend getting all of the readers for this curriculum as well as they are classics that you will read together for many years to come and it helps to have them on hand when you need to review anything.

      Love this integrated language arts program! I wish I had discovered this program years before with some of my older children. It integrates writing, spelling, grammar, reading, literature, narration, etc. in that gentle way that doesn't bore the child with twaddle and busy workbooks. (Those who follow Charlotte Mason methods will appreciate this curriculum.)

      The blue book, in particular, integrates a reading program with language arts and even associated crafts and field trips. It does explain in the curriculum where to start with a non-reader and where to begin with a child already reading. Not all children are taught (or able) to read prior to the first grade. So take the suggested grade level and apply it to your child's abilities. That is the beauty of homeschooling, that you can apply curriculum to your child at their level and enjoy it as such. (We began 1/2 way through kindergarten.) I loved the varied lesson plans that utilized auditory, visual, and kinetic methods. This is marvelous to help discover what type of learner your child is.

      Finally, this curriculum is a terrific bargain. The cost of the kit for an entire year is exceptional. Associated optional literature books can be checked out at the library for further savings. The Red Book is already waiting on the shelf for our next year.

      This is a great comprehensive language arts curriculum. I love that it incorporates classic children's literature. The curriculum comes with numerous readers that are written very well so that a child can easily learn to read them.

      I bought this for my kindergartner who is very much a math person and has zero interest in reading. I hoped this would generate interest and I think it will. However, we had to start half-way through the book with the blends because she already knew here letter sounds and short vowels.

      The Blue Book is VERY basic material. It is NOT first grade material. It is Kindergarten material. This is perfect for a kindergartner or an advanced preschooler.
