I usually get my Alpha & Omega Lifepacs from a different company, but missed the sale in May, so I had another home-school mom tell me about the sale on this website that was a one day sale in July. So I jumped on the opportunity & bought it along with another other grade. I was able to get way more items that I had not anticipated getting because of all the sale prices on I believe, all items I purchased. I saved so much money & ended up with way more than originally planned! We are really excited to use this 3rd grade curriculum!
I homeschool six children with different levels of ability. My son thrives with the mastery approach of his LifePacs. He is able to work at his own pace and is self-driven to work through this material as independently as possible. I love the fact that it is orderly and planned and easy to work with as a very busy mom who has very little time to really plan. It's material is very age- and grade-level-appropriate, and we find that our son loves the sense of accomplishment he feels as he works through each unit. I highly recommend this curriculum!
This curriculum is great! It is well organized, which works great for mom and it is full of vibrant colors to keep my girls excited about there work. I have been pleased with the amount of reading that is incorporated in each subject. Most stories are biblical or at least approach the story from a biblical moral base. The only thing we have to do along with this curriculum is add some extra reading assignments for a little more in depth learning.
I was very disappointed in this curriculum. It was way too easy and actually set my daughter back. I was also very upset that they encouraged being prejudice for other religions and cultures. I teach my kids to love and respect everyone, no matter where they come from. Also a lot of the answers were incorrect. And history biographies were wrong. Luckily my kids were smarter than the answer keys!
