Complete Curriculum

Has anyone used the curriculum from Harcourt Family learning? It's called complete curriculum and they have it for each grade level. I saw it tonight while we were at Barnes and Nobles. I was just wondering if anyone had an opinion on it. I am still deciding what we will use next school year.

I am not familiar with it.  However it is sold on Amazon, and there are some reviews on it there.

We bought it and plan to use it next year. For us it is going to be a guide line and practice work book because it would only take my dad maybe 6 months to finish. We are adding science and history from the magic school bus and the magic tree house to our curriculum and several websites.

I've seen it. I do not think it's meant to be a full curriculum, all on its own.

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

We have used it in our curriculum and liked it. It is not a complete curriculum in my opinion. I added things in and felt great afterward.

I agree, I had the same opinion when I purchased it.

You! I keep trying to message you! Did you block me? (just kidding, just kidding - but I have been trying to message you and it doesn't seem to be working; can you message me?)

I used it for 3rd grade, it was our first year home schooling and I  needed something and had no idea what to get so I picked the 3rd grade book up. Just as the other ladies posted: it is not meant to be used all by it's self. You need to supplement. I ended up using it as a guide which worked great. For 4th grade I bought Calvert (which I will never do again) and this year I bought Houghton, Harcourt books and work books.

I didn't even think to look at the bookstore for curriculum (silly I know). I was set on getting Abeka but I may build it myself. Exciting!
