Anonymous.Age: 25-34Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Lifepac Language Arts Grade 1October 21, 2017Anonymous.Age: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I did the first 3 books of this set along with the other Lifepac subjects with my daughter before switching to a more comprehensive program. I don't think I gave it enough time before giving up on it honestly. I think Lifepac is good because its very affordable and easy for the kids to do. There isnt alot of work or repetition like other curriculums which is good for children with short attention spans.
I like that they cover many subjects in this set so less work is needed. I would however recommend supplementing the phonics program if you find them struggling in that area because it does tend to go quickly through this subject. We found "primary phonics" reading books and workbooks to be an easy and affordable supplement for just about any first grade curriculum. Primary Phonics is also what was used with my oldest son in public school many years ago.
Overall, I would try this program again with my youngest son in first grade but would also use the primary phonics program with it too.

Kathi Abbott5 Stars Out Of 5May 7, 2008Kathi AbbottThis was so fun! We had a ball. Everything was very clear as to what we had to do. I liked the hands on part of it. Lots of projects to help the children learn. These products helped my children to learn how to read and spell. I gave my children a spelling test, thinking there is just no way they are going to be able to spell these words. But they aced them. We say our prayers and sing our songs and thank the lord for this beautiful set of books. God bless your work on helping to teach the children about our Lord.
Sandra1 Stars Out Of 5February 1, 2008SandraWe are using Lifepacs for every subject except math this year, and I think all the others are good. I do not feel the same way about Lifepac First Grade LA. Consider: La covers several subjects; handwriting, grammar and punctuation, writing, phonics, reading, and reading comprehension. Lifepacs do not have enough pages to practice these skills in the depth necessary for mastery. We are using the TM and all the other Lifepac subjects except math. A key to using Lifepac LA successfully is to understand the the skills are reviewed and practiced in the material in other subjects. You must use at least two other Lifepac subjects, with the TM's to review handwriting and phonics being learned in the LA Lifepacs. However, even with me using these as effectively as possible, my son's reading and handwrititing were taking a nose dive. In addition, the teacher reads *with* the student for the first several Lifepacs, and phonics are used throughout even the Lifepac reading lists that have not been introduced yet. For instance today we were to learn and practice a word list of "th" words. Words such as "third" were in the list, though r-controlled vowels have not been covered yet. Compound words including /th/ were in the list, though compound words have not yet been covered. I like AOP but I really recommend you check out Horizons for Phonics, Math and Spelling and leave Lifepac LA on the shelf.
Asen Avery4 Stars Out Of 5October 20, 2007Asen AveryGood material. Well planned and easy to use. The lessons are divided into units with a unit test at the end,and there are several self tests in each unit. The self tests are fun and my daughter enjoys the fact that she can see her progress section by section.
