  1. I love the math and the handwriting. We are using Math 2 right now as a review. My son is ASD and ADHD and we use multiple math curricula though the year, I like having a fun slightly easier one to break up the Beast and the Math mammoth. With math 2, I can follow the script and both my pre-k and my rising 3rd understand it. Its well done - the lessons have a morning review at the start with calendar work and then the lesson is mastery with no additional review. The lessons are long winded and I edit or skip quite a bit since we have covered these already unless it has something we mi
  2. We are working though Opal now. I started it at the tail end of grade 2 and we will finish it halfway through 3rd. I really like it.

  5. First post here 🙂 I'll preface with both DS 6 and I are autistic. DS is more of a sensory seeking, clothing freakout, overwhelmed easily type. I like quiet and researching and noise gets to me fast. We are a pair! And we have my DD 3 running around wreaking havoc. We do "formal" work Tuesday/Thursday/Friday because I'm in school Mon/Wed. I want to get a plan together for next year and the ending part of this year because we hit a handful of snags and can't seem to get back into a groove. Currently: McRuffy Language Arts 1, we started this late and it's working well for us,
