grace'smom Posted January 24, 2011 Share Posted January 24, 2011 I'm trying to decide whether to bite the bullet and purchase Nancy Larson for first grade, or to wait another year and get the Level One in second grade. Is it worth it for a first grader? We want to give our daughter a strong, solid science foundation where she'll have a good comprehension and memory of concepts and vocabulary. However, is this too much for a first grader? Is there something cheaper that would give her the same thing without a lot of prep time on my part? If there's not then it's worth it and I should stop worrying about the cost... I was thinking about McRuffy or Elemental as alternatives, with Larson's course beginning in second grade. Any thoughts on the take away knowledge kids will retain with those? Any other ideas? This year we're doing a lot of animal study with weekly zoo visits, Sonlight science read alouds in random order, and sometimes a chapter of Classic Science from that eequalsmcsquared website or a trip to the local science museum.
