Tracy Posted December 2, 2011 Share Posted December 2, 2011 I have been considering using FLL3 for dd6 for next year. I am not entirely sold on teaching grammar formally at this age. But I like the idea of a gentle program, not just for dd, but also for me since my public school background did not teach much grammar (and absolutely no diagramming). So I just pulled up the FLL3 student book sample to show dh, and the first lesson shown is #40, which is about the types of sentences. Dd was curious to see it, and she started reading the instructions and just gave me the answers to each one. I have never taught her about this topic, but she understood it on her own. So if she already understands Lesson 40 without instruction, is FLL3 really the way to go? Add to that the fact that I wouldn't likely use the memory work since we are in a pretty good groove of choosing our own, and I don't care for the fact that some of the poems are adapted. Since she seems to be able to grasp grammar concepts fairly easily, am I better off just waiting on formal grammar? Is there something out there that would work better for us? Or should I just use FLL3 and just breeze through it? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
