TKDmom Posted May 26, 2009 Share Posted May 26, 2009 This is a spin-off of an earlier post that I wrote about my 2nd grade dd who is not enjoying any work that requires her write right now. We are using WWE 2 and GWG 3 right now as the basis for our language arts. I dropped SWO already b/c it was tedious for her--she's a natural speller and she probably needed the next level up, but I'll pick up on spelling again in the future. I think our main problem is that she is very bright, especially in verbal skills, and I don't have the right level material for her. So, I've come to the conslusion that instead of pushing her up into higher and higher levels of language arts, I need to give her something that will allow her more creativity, and spend less time on the material that she considers tedious. This fall I am going to be using Sonlight and I've decided to also get her their LA for level 2 w/advanced readers. I like that it has a variety of activities and that it has creative writing opportunities (which I will feel free to skip if there are too many of those). But at the same time, I think I will want more than their "natural" approach to grammar and writing. I am planning on adding in MCP word study, which is one of their optional workbooks. Has anyone successfully used SL LA with other programs like WWE and FLL or GWG. I don't want to overkill on language arts. I was thinking of alternating what we do on which days, but I'm not sure how it would work, or if it would even be helpful. Any thoughts/suggestions?
