DragonflyAcademy Posted August 19, 2012 Share Posted August 19, 2012 Ok.. I need some input.. We are switching to Saxon this coming year.. DS used Rod and Staff for grade 5 and did quite well.. prior we used TT until it became obvious he needed more drill... He is good in math.. but makes careless mistakes.. he rushes.. and doesn't take the time to think it through.. he will just write an answer without thinking "does this make sense??".. I have both Saxon 5/6 and 7/6 and had thought to place him in 7/6..I did give the placement test and he just squeaked into the 7/6 placement.. he is entering 6th grade.. Is there any detriment to place him in 5/6?? Should he be placed in 7/6?? Will that throw Jr High (gasp!!) off next year if he is in 7/6 if I place him in 5/6?? Will he know the material for the CAT at the end of this year if I place him in 5/6??? (we are in a standardized testing year this year) Thoughts.. ?? (I am committed to Saxon.. so an alternate program isn't an option..) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
