Pathway readers

I just received Pathway readers (Building Our Lives) for 4th grade. I just have a few questions. Would this replace Sonlight readers? Would there be any reason to do both? What do the Pathway readers cover? It looks like it covers vocabulary and comprehension. Am I right? My dd9 actually prefers the readers from Sonlight better, it just seems like the Pathway readers may cover more. Maybe I am wrong.

At that level, Sonlight readers are real books. I'd definitely use Sonlight readers over Pathway readers in that case. We use real books for "reading". I have a couple Pathway readers, and so far, my son hasn't been interested in them. I don't even know what level they are, but they're well within his reading level.

 

I will always pick real books over basal readers once a child is capable of reading real books. :)

I think most 4th graders would find SL readers more interesting. But if you think your dd needs the extra stuff from the Pathway readers go ahead. I used Pathway readers to teach my ds to read (they were great for that!) and he enjoyed the stories. We never read them to level 4 however.

 

I would suspect that if you use the SL IG and have your dd discuss the books she's reading with you, that she would actually learn as much with SL.
