The Wordly Wise 3000 series is just what I needed for my grandson. It is very difficult to find materials that work easily and thoroughly with children who have autism. We are almost finished with grade 1, and I've already ordered grade 2.
I had used Wordly Wise books of higher levels before and enjoyed them. I wasn't aware that the K and 1 levels require additional teacher resources in order to use the student book. I would like to use this with my younger children but the student book doesn't have all that is necessary.
We really like this product. Very colorful. I like the way the teacher's manual is laid out day by day for you. No planning on your part, it's already done for you. The only reason I didn't give it a full 5 stars is because it is a little on the pricey side. Other than that, I highly recommend it.
I purchased this curriculum to use with a 4-year-old and a 6-year-old and I'm so glad I did! They both love the stories and the colorful activity pages.The Wordly Wise stories are well written with challenging words and concepts for this age group. The units are interesting and open-up discussions that are perfect for young students. This curriculum has been great for mixed age groups because there are pictures for the non-readers, and clear printed works for the readers.
