You might have different goals, but I skip the Language, Spelling and tests. So anything related to those I don't buy. I also get by with just the Special Sounds cards and skip the rest. The seatwork cards are new, so I am not familiar with what they include. I only end up using the first 5 readers or so before they start reading actual books, but ymmv.

IMO, buying all the readers is overkill. We have a couple from the beginning (a,b,c) and a couple from the end (g,h), but we prefer to read real books. We use the Handbook, the L&S work text, the Spelling and Poetry work text, and the Phonics Charts.


We use Shurley and Writing With Ease to cover grammar and writing.
