Curious to see what the Spelling U See will be like.

I so love Life of Fred.  It's just the way my oldest learns, it's been awesome!

That's what I was thinking too.  If it's not too high priced, I may just buy it for the curiosity.

We like LOF for fun, it's a supplement to us.  I'm curious about how a language arts curriculum will be set up in the Fred story-line.

My oldest is a quick, reading learner.  He hates pages and pages of practice.  I'm talking a 5 hour fit over 10 spelling words one week in ps.  HATES practicing.  A lot of teachers in ps took his speedy (so possibly erroneous for his speed) as not getting the math, but he was bored.  And having to do all the work was painful to him.  So Fred is just what he was looking for.  He's doing Fractions now, and is happy that I've quit pushing him to finish a book every 2 or 3 weeks (I started him at Apples).  Now, doing our taxes with me, he's hating that.

LOL!  I don't know anyone who likes to do taxes.  (Yes I know there are probably some out there).  But I love to play with math and even I hate that nit-pickiness!

I love doing taxes.  I feel like I've kicked their asses.  Yeah, the IRS advice could be crappy?  Yeah, no one in Congress can figure out the complexities of their own taxes?  Yeah, nobody can figure out why in the hey diddle diddle ville the IRS is responsible for enforcing the ACA?  I got it.  I do my own taxes.  Pencil and paper, baby.  I file electronically, I check out the rules, I follow it all, I kick butt.  :)

Yes, it can be used in the US.  Just like the Math books are in alphabetical order (Apples, Butterfly so on) the language arts titles are alphabetized Australia is the first book.  Sorry for any confusion.
