  1. If you have used this program, I have a couple of questions. Is it possible to do this program without purchasing the flash cards? Does the teacher manual list what words the cards say or would I have to purchase them to know this information? My daughter really seems to hate flash cards, so I might enter the flash cards on an online program like Quizlet instead. As an alternative, I might just make "cards" for the words that she finds difficult. Do you add the language arts 100 level with the Learning to Read program or the regular reading program? I can't tell from looking at their website when to start the LA. Thank you so much for your help! Sherry
  2. Currently, I am having my 3rd grader use First Language Lessons 3, Writing With Ease 2 AND CLE Language Arts 200. I am wondering if it is truly beneficial to continue with the CLE Language Arts or if it is too redundant? Also, my 1st grader is using First Language Lessons 1, Writing With Ease 1, Explode the Code 3 and CLE Language Arts 100. Again, I am wondering if we should keep it or not. If we dropped the CLE LA, is what we have enough in the Language Arts/Writing department or should we add in something different?
  3. I am just amazed at the thoroughness, simplicity and how a firm foundation is laid and then built upon. This is our 3rd year using this program for Math, Reading and LA. My 3rd grader wrote a 3 paragraph book report PAINLESSLY. The Lightunit guided him step by step, gently day after day and before we knew it...whoala...a well written book report and a proud little boy! DD was doing fallacies in her level 700 reading. She is learning the fallacies painlessly, with real examples that speak to her...at her maturity level, but not dumbed down, if you kwim. She has daily copywork that is worthwhile quotes from literature, history, the Bible, and science. My 7 yo ds is reading fluently..his handwriting is beautiful and he just finished his unit of copywork, which was a simple report about hummingbirds. Now he is doing copywork about children in Norway. Logic is taught in the math books, again gently....deductive reasoning, matrixes etc. I think this is going to be a looong relationship. :D Faithe (who needed to kvell.)
  4. Have any of you used and liked CLE English and reading programs? This would be for my soon to be 8th grade girl. How is the writing instruction?
  5. I think I may have finally solved my language arts dilemma! I'm hoping that GWG 4 + WWE 4 will be a balanced, well rounded combination of self-directed study with gentle instruction for my upcoming 4th grader (I will continue FLL with my youngers through grade 2). I'm also probably going to try GWG's Soaring with Spelling & Vocabulary. Here's what I ruled out to get here: FLL at the higher grammar level takes too much of my involvement and is too repetitive for my oldest, who has a natural grasp of grammar. She has liked CLE LA (what we switched to mid-year) but it jumps around a lot and I'm not impressed with the instruction (which is mainly in my teacher manual unlike GWG which teaches right in the workbook) - also the spelling component was below her level and the writing assignments didn't usually interest her. I considered R&S but from the samples and what I found on the forums, it seems overly rigorous for someone who already "gets" grammar, dry, and runs the risk of making the Bible rote by inserting so much of it. Plus, my daughter is more workbook-y. I researched Phonics Road, MCT, and others I found in the forums but they were either too expensive or too teacher intensive or too [insert other criteria]. So thanks to all of your input (I spent hours searching threads and starting my own), I think I finally have settled on all my curriculum for fall! Better go buy it before I change my mind... ...Oh, if anyone is using GWG + WWE, I'd love to hear your feedback.
  6. I am looking into the possibility of starting CLE LA for my 3rd grader next year to cover grammar and spelling. She has not done any grammar yet. My son started R&S in 3rd grade and does well with it - not sure the format of it is a great fit for my dd, though. I use CLE math and love it, but not sure about the LA Also, I remember the spelling was way too easy for my son when I looked at it a few years ago, but my daughter is not an advanced speller - probably on grade level. How do you like the spelling component?
  7. I am trying to decide between FLL/WWE and CLE LA, after looking at the placement tests, it looks like they assume a 2nd grader would already be diagramming. My oldest DD has never diagrammed, but everything else on the placement test she could complete without a problem. Is there any instruction for that in CLE 300s? I have never diagrammed before, and want to make sure she is taught correctly. CLE looks like it would be a little less teacher-intensive (which would make life easier with my toddler!)-but does it teach to narrate? My middle DD definately needs help in this area. Thanks :)
  8. My daughter will finish CLE 6 this spring. She'll be in 8th grade next year. Would it be horrible if we skipped CLE 7? Is there enough review in CLE 8 to cover what she needs from 7? She actually likes grammar, and retains it well, if that would make a difference. (I wouldn't normally consider skipping a level ,but my daughter is expressing an interest in going to a traditional school for high school, so I want her to get as much intense grammar as she can before she goes...) Thanks! Melissa
  9. Has anyone gone from FLL3 to CLE LA 4? How was the transition? Was your dc prepared? Also, how have you found the poetry sections in CLE? Or has anyone compared FLL4 to CLE LA 4? I'm looking for something a little less teacher intensive for next year, but just as gentle & repetitive. Dd needs that. We'll be using AAS and a progym writing program also so we won't need the spelling or writing. I'm mostly interested in grammar, although I love that it includes the word study and poetry, as I was thinking about dabbling in something like Poetry Primer but I'm thinking I may not need to if we use CLE? Thanks for any thoughts you might share.
  10. Is the writing portion of CLE Language Arts sufficient or do most people supplement? Thanks for any info!
  11. If your 5th grader has had little Grammar exposure which level would you start with?
  12. I don't recall seeing any this year for level 600. Does anyone know if this is taught or if I need to supplement with something else? Thanks, Faithe
  13. My rising 4th grader wants to use something other than Rod & Staff for English. After looking through CLE samples, it seems to me that CLE is somewhat similar to R&S, but is in a workbook format which would be easier for my dd to use. Can anyone who is familiar with both CLE and R&S English point out any major differences between the two? Would I be sorry later if I have her use CLE for a year (or two or three) and wanted to switch back to R&S at that point? Also, dd will be using WWE. Does WWE + CLE = enough writing for a 4th grader who dislikes writing? I can't get a feel for how many writing exercises are included in CLE, compared to R&S.
  14. I finally decided to use CLE LA for my elementary aged kids next year. They'll be 5th (using 400), 3rd (using 200) and 2nd (using 100)....we have some catching up to do. But since it seems CLE LA is a little weak on writing, I wanted to choose a very doable writing program to go with it. I started Meaningful Composition 4 with my 4th grader this year and like it pretty well. So I could continue with that. Then I came across the Evan Moor Trait Writing books and really like them. I don't want to do too much and burn the kids out. And I will probably only add something for the 5th and 3rd grader. Any ideas? What have you supplemented CLE LA with for writing? Anyone have experience you can share with these Evan Moor books or MC? I appreciate your input :bigear:
  15. I'm trying to compare these. CLE gets great reviews, but it looks a little disjointed to me because of the spiral approach. IOW, somthing like Abeka, Easy Grammar, or Rod and Staff (all mastery) organizes grammar concepts: nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, etc....You get a sense of how grammatical parts are related. CLE organization mixes these things up, and it's hard to see how, for example, nouns and adjectives relate to each other. MCT looks very organized where grammatical concepts clearly have relationships. I LOVE that! (4-way analysis?) It's just that I don't know that we need all the components of MCT. We're used to IEW, and I don't want to change writing and confuse my kids. We'll also do LLftLotR next year, so the poetry/music book might be overkill. Could anyone compare these for me? I would also really appreciate an explanation about how MCT is used. Is it one book at a time or do you do a little of each book along the way? Would it make sense to combine the grammar part of MCT and use it with CLE to show the relationship between the grammatical parts? What do you think?
  16. I love R&S (we're mid-way through 6) but my daughter prefers a workbook approach. I'm considering CLE. Has anyone compared R&S and CLE? Is CLE as rigorous as R&S? I'd appreciate any thoughts! Thanks!
  17. We're using CLE for math and are very pleased. I'm interested in using CLE for LA as well, but have one hesitation. I'm concerned that the explanations aren't as thorough as those found in R&S. I know dd would love the workbook approach, but I'm undecided about switching from R&S to CLE for LA in 8th grade. Can you set my fears to rest or should I finish out elementary/jr. high with R&S? After all, we've come this far with R&S. DD simply prefers the workbook format, but would go either way. I love the R&S teacher manuals. FWIW I would still be using a separate spelling program as dd needs more spelling work. Thanks!
  18. Thinking of transitioning to it from FLL4 and also for my 8th grader next fall. I love CLE math so the set up of CLE is appealing to me...would love to hear others experiences with it. Blessings, Kathi
