Besides All About Reading and Explode the Code. I'm already using Explode the Code with my will be first grader and will be third grader. I considered AAR but my eldest kid hated AAS so I'm a little unsure of how helpful it'll be. However, I want to supplement Explode the Code. Although I LOVE it; I'm not sure it's enough. We do read books and anything that we get our hands on and my eldest is above grade level, but I just want to make sure that there are no holes in his reading abilities. Any advice would be appreciated.

Logic of English Foundations

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're Catholic, we're conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

It helps with reading? So it's a reading program? Ok I'll look into that. I haven't heard of it before.

Hmmm.... only goes up to second grade level.... That looks good for my younger child but not good for my eldest. Ugh... I'm having such difficulty finding more programs for him. He reads at about a 3.5-4th grade level now.

Your little would do LOE foundations, but the other would LOE essentials.

It is a reading, spelling, and handwriting program.

ETA: Does he read well (the third grader)? I see no reason to do a phonics program once a child is reading very well. He will get what he needs (so far as rules, etc) from a spelling program at that point.

No clue. I hear great things about it. Frankly, I've never heard a bad review of it.

It's one of my shiny object syndrome things - I keep looking at it, reading reviews on it, asking about it. Lol.

It's in second grade and he can read books that range anywhere from 2.5 AR grade level to 4.5 AR grade level books. So I guess he reads well?

http://www.arbookfind.com/default.aspx I use this site to check what level he's at when we choose books.
