IEW - 1st timer, what to use for 5th grade?


Recommended Posts

You have three main options:


1) SWI (where Pudewa teaches your child every couple weeks, and you help with assignments during that time), with or without TWSS (though I recommend TWSS). This is the route I've taken.


2) Theme book plus TWSS (so you know how to teach the theme book). Lessons are prepared. You just have to teach them.


3) TWSS with your own passages chosen (this is what we'll do after SWI, as I feel pretty confident about teaching it with TWSS for most of the units - he explains it really well).


Some people use SWI by itself without watching TWSS. If money is super tight, that's certainly an acceptable option. I think TWSS was worth it though, so I'm really glad I did both.


We did WWE 1 and 2 prior to this, and we plan to do WWS in 5th or 6th. I'll use TWSS across curriculum until then, once we finish SWI-A.
