Yes or No to Latin Prep workbooks?

We use them about 50% of the time. They are nice for extra practice but I also find that just backing up a few pages in the textbook and having them do a lesson they did last week (again) works just as well for us.

 

I wouldn't say they are as valuable to the program as the Challenging Word Problems are to Singapore Math. Do you know what I mean?

 

I think they're completely optional, nice to have, but optional.

I vote yes. I need to slow the pace down FOR ME. The workbooks give us more practice on the same material before adding more concepts to my poor, slow brain.

 

However, in YOUR case, I might not. If you did LC1 and 2 with your kids and "got" most of it, you'll probably not need to slow down. I would think you'll find a lot of review and reinforcement (from a different perspective).

 

I hope you'll tell us how you like it after you're a couple of chapters in.

Fwiw ... and certainly not dismissing anyone's appreciation of these ... we didn't use them and didn't miss them. We've found the text itself to be enough.

 

Y'know, since Book Depository has free shipping, you could always try the text alone first, and add the workbook later if you find the need for it. (cause, gosh, it gets expensive to add workbook & answer key x 2 for one year).

I highly recommend the workbooks, too. We have definitely appreciated the extra practice. LP moves much more quickly than previous programs we've used (LC, Latin for Children), and I'm afraid the kids wouldn't have been ready to move on from certain chapters without the extra activities. I'm sure it's individual, though, and certainly my 3rd grader is on the younger end of LP users (though my 5th grader benefitted from the workbooks just as much)!
