Mommy22alyns Posted July 13, 2008 Share Posted July 13, 2008 I am about to go throw myself off the front porch! This is driving me insane. We're finishing up SWO A soon. I feel like it's really just been busy work for Becca and I don't know how much spelling she's actually learned from it. Maybe that's just because a large part of the book really was below her level. She's just now encountering some challenges in it. Maybe when she moves up to level B, and if I get the teacher manual to flesh it out, SWO will work better for us? I've also considered AAS. The kinesthetic learning aspect appeals to me, but I'm also concerned about the challenge level. From what I can gather, Becca might do best to start at least in the middle of Level 1, if not just directly at Level 2. I've also looked at Spelling Power, but keep hearing it compared to Saxon, which makes me want to run in the other direction. Our attempt with Saxon 1 made both of us want to poke our eyes out. We can't do that slow, incremental pace. Someone suggested The ABCs and All Their Tricks, but I just don't think I can work directly from that effectively - maybe when I'm a more experienced hs'er. I want her to learn the rules, but we also need a quick pace and challenging words. :001_smile: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
