momee Posted February 13, 2008 Share Posted February 13, 2008 Hi all, we went from TOG to Sonlight 200. Just pushed the order button last night with ds and dh's glowing approval. Now, of course! I'm having doubts I did the right thing. I'm a bit worried about the "helps" available with SL upper core. How's the writing instruction - will we be ok with IEW TWSS discs in conjunction with SL assignments? What about the literature instruction? Will I need to supplement that? I hope not! Are there more to the teacher's notes - discussion info - than what's available on the core 200 sample? I read that in the upper core the notes are extensive but on the two samples I looked at it seemed there were just discussion questions. I need a less teacher intensive program and something with high interest reading for this ds now. I can't go back anyway - we're having a baby, I'm burnt out on TOG and ds is super! excited that his literature isn't going to be tied to his history. I also wonder if any of you have had success using SL 200 with a 13 year old? He's an awesome reader - we just read Gilgamesh and he understood that fine and I'm trying to ignore the comments in the catalog of the dangers of using SL for the 1st time with a 13 yr old. We've been reading those same books for years and I THINK he can handle it. We just tried WTM for one day last week and between the lost look of "what do I do" for history from him and going to the library (which I really want to cut back on!) I don't think that's going to work. He will SCREAM if we go back to Tapestry, lol. His favorite subject is bible and he's very mature "spiritually" speaking and extremely interested right now in missions and evangelism. I think it will work I'd just love to hear from those that are using it. Thanks. Stephanie ps - don't read back through my previous posts, we've been curricula jumping lately and I'll seem very pschitophrenic to you all:eek: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
