LBKeller5 Stars Out Of 5Great programDecember 22, 2011LBKellerLike a previous reviewer said, it is easily done independently, which my 4th grader, who usually needs me by her side to focus, flies through these assignments on her own. They are short and sweet.
Also, the program is 1 semester, not 2. You can do level 5 for your second semester and just go through the books (4-6 and A-F) or choose another elective. I am creating a end of semester "final". If she passes, she is finished with the class for the year. If she stumbles, I'll have her do it again... it is short, sweet, and I am far more concerned that she KNOWS the material and knows it well.
I am very pleased with the product.
headzookeeperRed Lion, PAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5March 17, 2011headzookeeperRed Lion, PAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have used the middle school levels of this program with great success, but I wasn't aware that they had books for elementary students, as well, until I was doing research for this year's curriculum. I got the Vocabulary from Classical Roots 4 book for my youngest son, who is not ordinarily an independent learner, and he took to it immediately. He easily finishes his week's worth of vocab work in just a day or two (why stretch it out over a whole week, right? LOL). I am finding that the lessons are written in such a way that my 10 yo can understand them on his own...and with four kids, any subject that I don't have to actively teach daily is a big winner!!
My only complaint...and it's very minor...is that the book actually seems a bit short for a full-year program. I actually came to CBD tonight to purchase "the second book" for 4th grade and was surprised to discover that there is no second book. So I guess my son is done with his vocabulary for the year. I kinda wish the program were a little longer, but you know my son's not complaining! And I know he learned a lot, so I shouldn't have any complaints either.
I definitely recommend this program, and we will continue to use it through middle-school and high-school.
