Has anyone used McRuffy? Specifically second grade, or any other suggestions for language arts/reading/spelling?
I'm looking for language arts/reading/phonics/spelling for my second grader. I like how everything is combined. I really want spelling words to be part of the phonics lessons for the week, and fun readers. I already got my kindergarteners McRuffy and it looks good other than it doesn't include sight words, and the spelling words are words from the books that aren't neccesary for words a kindergartner would be learning to spell, if any at that age. I'm worried if I get it for my second grader the spelling words won't be typical of what a second grader should know and I'll need to add something like All About Spelling. If I didn't go with McRuffy I have no idea what we'd do for reading/phonics since the readers for all of the other programs don't look like what he'd want to read, and spelling wouldn't go with phonics lessons. Any advice or other program suggestions?
