For that age, I think it's a good program, but for the math. The math appears pretty behind what other maths are doing at that point.

I think that the younger grades are RIDICULOUSLY behind. I understand it's Waldorf-ish in philosophy, so that's why, but I would never use it personally. I do not use the upper grades for different reasons (their philosophy doesn't work with my faith), but other than math, I think it's a solid academic program in the upper grades. Fair warning - it is VERY writing intensive in the upper grades, IMO.

(we did buy the grade 6 program and I've looked at the younger grades, before deciding it wasn't for us)

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 actually considered using the English & History (its combined) for next year (5th grade). My DD really likes MCT Language Arts though, so we won't be switching as of right now. There is a post over on secularhomeschool.com by one of the members. She really liked it. You will have to scope it out.

Good information from Aimee. It's always nice to hear someone's take on curriculum that you haven't viewed yourself.good luck
