  9. I would love to hear more from those using this, too, especially in the upper books! We have used Classical Writing from Primer through Homer A for my rising 6th grader, and Aesop B, for my rising 5th and 3rd graders. I always planned to do CW all the way through, but it’s just too much and wearing us down. We all have come to dread it. I bought W&R 3 just to look at and it seems so easy and writing-light compared to CW. Are we supposed to do writing above the specific exercises in the book? Will it ramp up quickly in later books? My kids will love the change in workload, but are the end results similar between the two programs? Please understand, I am not bragging about how much ahead my kids are AT ALL. I’m actually kicking myself for beating them up with CW when a gentler, kinder option has been there the whole time. I’m kind of in shock about the whole thing. If I do switch us, I was considering Fix-It Grammar to go along with it. Is that enough after finishing all 4 FLL books?
  10. A little late to the 'party', but my 2nd grade ds is loving this reader made up of Aesop's Fables. (Discovered through Don Potter's site) https://books.google.com/books?id=a5YNAAAAQAAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=ladder+to+learning&hl=en&ei=18fzTeHGE4aXtwfDqp30Bg&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=9&ved=0CE8Q6AEwCA#v=onepage&q&f=false The language is older and the book is divided into three sections based on syllables. The first group of fables are only one syllable words. The second group have one and two syllable words, and the third group have up to three syllable words. We're doing about one fable a week, reading it daily. I'm very pleased with his response to it. It's quality literature and leads to good discussion of the moral, too! Regards, C.
  11. The sale info came in an email. It ends Friday evening. The sale price is $72, which sounded pretty nice to me. See if this link works: http://notebookingpages.com/memberships-2016winter Thank you for the info, Mama2many4!
  12. Has anyone used NotebookingPages.com? She has a sale going until tomorrow on a "lifetime membership" but I'd like to hear opinions on if the content is worth the price. Thank you! C.
  13. A-ha! Ok, we'll get more serious about spelling the syllables then. Thank you!
  14. Hi, Oh man, I wish I had posted yesterday! I would have loved to hear that talk! My 4.5 yo ds and I have been working with Webster's Syllabary for several months now, and I recently re-read this thread and noticed that you emphasize knowing how to spell each syllable before moving along. I didn't catch that :blushing: until we were at least 3/4 of the way through pronouncing and reading, but NOT spelling, the initial tables. I have since gone back to the beginning and we're slowly working through spelling, but we also have continued through the tables and are working on reading some words, too. He loves sounding out new words, and is really making good progress on reading, so I hate to stop going forward if I can avoid it. My original phonics plan was to go through Webster's once through the first 10-15 word lists, then work through Blend Phonics, and then go back through Webster's a second time, and to use the word lists as spelling/vocab each week. My question is this: Will I be hurting ds's ability to spell, if we DON'T hit spelling really hard, even on the word lists, this time through? I hope what I'm asking makes sense! :). I'm certainly willing to slow way down and go back to the beginning more fully if that is crucial for successful spelling later. But I just wasn't sure how critical the spelling element is the first time through. Thank you! Carrie
