It came today! So exciting! We asked for basically everything, two months ago is exactly when I mailed the letter. We had nothing at all yet, so I just listed everything I could think of, hoping to at least get a start!
So we got:
BJU PreAlgebra text and TM (for DS)
Harcourt Math-5 text (for DD) I think this is older-I think they are owned by Houghton Mifflin now maybe?
Spanish-2 books, one lessons and one exercises...we have decided to go with sign language this year, but we will save the Spanish for next year for DS and probably the year after for DD
Moby Dick and The Swiss Family Robinson
Some math manipulatives
A Grade 5 computer disc-not sure what that has on it but we had the same disc for preschool when the kids were little, so I'm sure there will be something good for DD on there
I am pretty excited for the math books the most. Now I did buy the Saxon for DD, but I may use the Harcourt instead, I was looking through it and I think it doesn't 'spiral' as fast as Saxon. DH says "use them both" not sure how to do that, lol, but maybe if she needs extra practice I could find extra problems in one..he has no idea what goes in to being the homeschooling parent.
Just thought I'd share, it took a while to get here, but it's a great program that is helping us out.
