Next year, I am lightening our grammar/language arts load for our 8th grader as she has demonstrated that she is extremely proficient in those areas. She will focus more of her time on literature and writing. She will also be doing the Latin Road to English Grammar. She has completed Wordly Wise books for each of the past 4 years. Would you continue with Wordly Wise vocabulary books or can you suggest something else that would prepare her for high school/SAT/college?

Ds1 has just completed 9th. For 7th and 8th he did Vocab for the High School Student. For 9th he went to a private school that uses Wordly Wise. The school administrators credit the use of WW for their students' good performance on the SAT. But ds has said he thought VCHSS was harder. I'm not sure if that's just because he was younger or if the two cover similar material. I haven't looked into it that deeply to compare. Just wanted to share our experience.
