Has anyone used this program?
I am thinking about using it for my 1st and 2nd graders next year.

 I don't know anything about it. Maybe someone else in here uses it or know something about it.

CLE is traditional in presentation and spiral. It is rigorous compared to most other math curricula on the market - make sure your child tests in appropriately; don't rely on grade levels. It is not abnormal for a child to work down a level in this program.

It is very mennonite. Lol. Even the word problems portray their faith. It is a worktext which I find nice - the child can learn and write in the same booklet (each grade has about 10 "light units" I believe). The TM is a must, in my opinion.

I do not use it now, but I have in the past, and it's definitely my default if what I'm using doesn't work.

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we have traditional gender roles, we're Catholic, I'm Libertarian, he's Republican, we're both conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

I don't know what CLE is but if it is what AutymsMommy's says, then I am somewhat familiar with their schooling.  I used to teach my younger brother and sister and they were using mennonite curriculum then. But, that was about 17 years ago.  So I don't think I would be any help now. :)  Sorry.

There are two main mennonite homschool programs - Rod and Staff and CLE. R&S is the polar opposite in terms of method of presentation - Rod and Staff is mastery and CLE is *very* spiral. Both are solid choices, although I've found Rod and Staff's scope and sequence to be behind compared to some other curricula -vs- CLE being rather "ahead".

You are very kind to show me the difference. Thank You. :)  I thought that CLE sounded familiar but wasn't too sure. Actually both sound familiar to me.  Not sure which one my siblings used.  You are also right that even their  word sentences reflect their faith and how they work. :)   It shows in all of their work.

Yes, and I LOVE it. My dd switched from a mastery based program, R&S, after 2nd grade. She has done all of the 200s, 300s, and is in LU406 now. It works very well for us.
