One more thought, now that we've started poetry. I felt the material in Homer was way more important than covering the poetry. Plus sometimes, I wanted him to write a paper for history, so I wouldn't make him work on Homer that day. Homer took longer than 4 days per week for us. It usually took my son more like 6 days to finish the lesson in Homer. So I don't think we'll have time to finish all of the Homer and Poetry in 5th-6th grades. If you are similar, you may want to keep chugging on Homer to make sure you get that done, and then just do whatever of the poetry you have time for. I am not going to buy Poetry B. I just purchased Poetry for older beginners, as it's a more condensed version, and that allows me to still cover the poetry, but also fit in the writing instruction I want to have time for that's more important.
