  2. I am totally in the same boat with you. My eldest is in ELTL 4. I love the diagramming and he has been doing extremely well with the program. Initially I was going to move over to W&R after ELTL 2 but stuck with it. We like the copia exercises in it but I just felt recently that he needs a bit more direction in the writing.

  5. I've whittled my amazon reading wishlist of over 200 books to this. I couldn't help but through in a 4th alternate in the elementary years. My list does loosely follow the 4 year cycle. Considering that this is a Literature list for school, I've included more "classic" titles. I've tried to include a little of adventure stories, historical fiction, fantasy and science fiction works. As I have two boys, my list leans that way. I've included links to some hardcover illustrated (usually abridged) editions of books. I really like the idea of having this kind of books that can be handed down
