cjbeach Posted January 16, 2012 Share Posted January 16, 2012 My dd will be returning to a B&M school next year. Looking over the state standards I can see that she has some holes: 1. Language Arts- we need to work on story elements and figurative language. Luckily her writing tutor has been going over similes and metaphors when he noted that gap. I'm a little lost here for resources, we've pretty much have always stuck with grammar and literature as our Lang Arts "curriculum" but we have holes (in comparison to our state standards). I have Figuratively Speaking on my Amazon wish list and have various story elements consumable workbooks on my list as well. Here's a question - I've never seen a AO Lifepak in person but I went through the S&S of their Lang Arts units and it looks like the Grade 5 Lang Arts Lifepak would fill in some of our holes in our Language Arts. Anyone have experience with Lifepaks? Looking to fill holes here, nothing more... 2. Social Studies - we've done more history a la WTM so of course we have the SS "hole" but I think I can correct that with a consumable SS book from a local teacher's store. Thanks so much!
