misidawnrn Posted September 25, 2012 Share Posted September 25, 2012 DD likes workbooks. I really wanted to get away from them this year and incorporate more of a CM style into our learning, which works great for science and history so we will stick with that. As much as I hate "plug and chug" idea of workbooks, I ordered a CLE Language 3 light unit for DD to trial. I like it! I like the spelling words in it, the practice cursive in the back, the short lessons, etc. Right now we are using ABeka for language and spelling. The spelling words have NOTHING to do with each other phonetically speaking-which DD still needs. She is not a natural speller. I am also starting my Master's program for nursing in January so I need DD to be able to work more independently on a few things so I still have time to do some preschool with little DD and my school (and cook, clean, grocery shop, work, laundry...etc, etc!) I like the Math in CLE (from the looks of it) because it has so much built in review and practice vs. me telling her what to do from the ABeka math teacher/lesson plan book. I just ordered all of the Math and the rest of the Light units for 3rd grade Language. I think I am going to have her work as independently as she can on those subjects and still read science and history together. Does this sound like a workable plan....ie: I am not going to screw up her education by allowing more independent work????? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
