Katydid Posted November 1, 2012 Share Posted November 1, 2012 We are currently using PLL and Wheeler's for LA with my third grader. We like the programs, but I find I need to tweak a bit. At this stage in my homeschooling (with two school aged plus a baby and toddler) I need to use something more open and go. I've narrowed it down to either CW or WWE. We tried WWE in 1st grade and it was OK. It got done without many complaints, but I found it a bit monotonous after a while. I do love the approach, the ease and simplicity of this program, though. But then I look at the CW primers and I think they look wonderful! Almost like a cross between the PLL/Wheeler's that we are used to plus the ease of WWE. But I'm not sure I want to continue on to CW Aesop after the primers. Do you think the primers would prepare a student enough to begin WWE3 next year? I really love the look of WWS and I eventually want DS to use that program, so I'm thinking WWE 3 & 4 would be the best preparation for that, right? So can we use the CW primers for the rest of this year and then move to WWE3 or should we just start WWE2? I like that the primers have integrated grammar (I am more CM when it comes to LA in the early years and am OK with delayed/light grammar) because I don't really want to do a separate grammar program if we go with WWE this year. Also, if I wanted to start the primers right away, should I order Autumn and just start him halfway through that book, or should I just go ahead and order winter, knowing that we tend to take longer than normal to finish books? How crucial is it to keep in line with the seasons with the primers? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
