joyfulhomeschooler Posted March 10, 2012 Share Posted March 10, 2012 I wanted so badly to make R&S work, but every time we try it just doesnt seem to be sticking. My son seems to do better with BJU. I don't know why exactly, it's not that he doesn't understand R&S, he gets all the right answers but for some reason it just doesn't work as well for him. So I made the choice (three days ago) to go back to BJU and stick with it. Well, now I have these R&S books on the shelf haunting me. I know they are more rigorous, and recommended by the WTM and just want them to work. Am I giving up to easily, should I give it another shot or just admit that for this child a workbook approach is a better fit? Weird considering PLL worked wonders for him last year. I saw major improvement in huis writing and spelling after usng this. All this and then to top it off there is the fact that R&S is much more economical than BJU. Another thing is I don't want to be yo-yoing back and forth right before testing. Which is in two months. What if I finish the year out with BJU and then give R&S another go in 4th grade? Would that work or would he have to go back to R&S 3? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
