In school, I was the kid who was off the charts in English, grammar, reading, spelling ....and off in the deep end without a paddle in math. I have always loved Language Arts, and I guess that's why this area was the most difficult to choose a curriculum for. But, after much searching and gnashing of teeth, I decided on a few different things this year. Here are some of our choices for Language Arts:
I waffled over grammar more than any other subject this year. I wanted Easy Grammar but, well, for me it is just really d-d-d-r-r-r-y-y-y. And I happen to love Evan Moor's products. So we will try this program and see how it goes!
For reading, our history program requires lots of historical fiction and biographies as part of its program, so I will not have a separate assigned reading list. Any other reading will be for pleasure! (I will discuss it sometime in the future.)
