................... Posted July 20, 2008 Share Posted July 20, 2008 Hi ladies, I am placing an order for a few things at Rainbow and am slightly considering changing up our LA. Right now our LA is CTGE which I do like. It gets the job done and was certainly cheap! We also use Language Lessons for LIttle Ones VOlume 3 which is too easy but a nice intro to CM LA for my son. The next volume of Queen's is not exactly what I'm looking for. I am currently using the SchoolAid CTGE for some phonics, handwriting, and all first grade LA skills. However it has a TON of busywork and I would perhaps like to ignite at least a little more of a fire in this area for my son, and focus on doing nicer handwriting, even if he doesn't do a lot of it. My son has a great attitude, but I would like something that draws him out a bit more. I don't like Handwriting books- they bore me and frustrate me, when my son's handwriting doesn't match the model exactly. But I'm not just looking for Copywork either. He is extremely creative. Everything is a story to him, and something with fun things to do and discuss would be his dream. He doesn't mind school as long as it's not rushed and he gets to take his time and work through something, or make something... He made up "Period Man" for punctuation and drew Period Man and told me all about how Period Man has to follow a sentence, and his friend is Question Mark Man but they don't get along so they don't come together... I would like more variety. I'm not so concerned about drill, although I do want him to have enough handwriting practice. I think I'm really jipping (sp?)him in this area, and I would like to enjoy this aspect with him more. Ideas? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
