melisa1 Stars Out Of 5dissapointedAugust 4, 2016melisaQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Extremely disappointed. I used the 5th grade Scott Foresman homeschool program for my 5th grader (The United States). The 6th grade homeschool program is exactly the same, except it is 5 chapters shorter. They also have changed the cover so the 6th book looks different. Even the workbook is identical.
