It always comes back to Five in a Row.
We love this curriculum. I almost didn't do it this year. I am finding this year school work takes us longer to do. I tried cutting out FIAR but I can't. Its such a rich curriculum. So we do it. With Heart of Dakota they say to use either their reading program or your own. So I use FIAR as our reading program since so much is learned through it. I still laugh at her putting eyes on the cat box last year when she learned about personification. I am amazed how she actually learned it and still will point it out in books that we read.
I don't have any pictures to share yet. I keep forgetting to take them.
My daughter would be so upset if we didn't get to do FIAR. I have the first 3 volumes and I hope to finish them up this year and move onto Volume 4 next year. Then onto Beyond Five in a Row.
If your still on the fence on what to use with your elementary student try FIAR its a very fun and rich learning experience. I am constantly amazed at all Samantha has learned using this. Or what I have learned!
