Nico is coming along okay with Phonics Pathways and an eclectic mix of phonics resources/programs. He hates Phonics Pathways though. He wants to learn to read, but PP really IS very dry and tedious.
I have Logic of English Foundations on my short list, but he'd still just barely need Level A, and I'm having a hard time justifying shelling out $140 for that level when he has mastered most of what it teaches (but for rhyming). I could wait until he masters rhyming and then just buy level B... or I could just keep trucking on with what we have... but I really hate that he dislikes the program we have; I want him to have fun with it. I *know* he would have a blast with LOE, as it's right up his alley (kinesthetic, visually appealing), and I really like that it is phonics, spelling, AND handwriting, so I wouldn't need separate programs for each ELA component.
Poor Aimee. Poor, indecisive Aimee.
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
