TYCTR in 100 easy lessons

I may have asked this before.. I can't remember.  But I am reconsidering.. again TYCTR in 100 easy lessons.  I had originally decided on McRuffy press but after talking to a local homeschool mom today and hearing her glowing recommendation of it as well as reading some other reviews I am thinking about it again.  The cost and simplicity is tempting and I would use it in combination with bob books and possibly ETC.  Does anyone have any thoughts on it? Or McRuffy Press for that matter? This is for a Kindergarten student

We are doing the TYCTR in 100 easy lessons.

It was highly reccomended by many previous homeschoolers in my church.

 We tried it with our DD & she hated the repetition!

I used 100 easy lessons and 3 out of 4 of my children learned to read with it. Last one "got it" halfway through and we discontinued it.

I think you know what my opinion is going to be ;) lol. It has worked great with my kids and the price is amazing. As one of the pp mentioned the repetition can get old, so we skip some of it toward the end of the book. Once they start to get bored they have usually got it. (I have heard that from a few moms)

I got it from the library. While my son wouldn't have been able to sit through it, I thought it explained *how* to teach reading, really, really well.

Thanks, all! I think I may give it a try.  It can't hurt to try it and if it doesn't work just resell it and buy the curriculm that I had intended on.  The distar kind of throws me off but we'll see how it goes!  Sad thing is that I am half way through my masters to teach reading and would feel ok going into a classroom with the support of other teachers but just feel lost at home.. That's terrible isn't it?!

It took me a second but they are talking about Teach Your Child To Read in 100 Easy Lessons.  I have hear it was good.  We liked Sing, Spell, Read and Write.
