Final Decisions

(I'm writing because Lupe and the children are playing Dutch Blitz)

I think I'm getting down to the nitty-gritty of deciding. There are still a few subjects that I'm not sure about. Mainly history. 

I did change Ethan and Lance's up since I last posted a few weeks ago, but I think it's set.
I was going to use Shurley English with Ethan, but have since decided to use WinterPromise La's. I Chose the 1st grade level because it reinforces the phonics that Ethan has learned from Saxon Phonics. I have heard that it's a pretty advanced 1st grade program. I am also adding PAL/Writing, to add more grade appropriate writing. If needed I can always add in Writing With Ease.
I also like that it looks more fun. Saxon Phonics was great but there is no color. WP has a fun reader that the child can write it called Acorn and Friends.

With Lance, the major change is using IEW PAL/Reading (although I haven't seen All About Reading level 1). It looks fun and I love that it includes copywork, poetry, sequencing and more.

For Science I decided that I can save money by using Apologia instead of Bob Jones Distance Learning. I can save about $350.00. I already own the Apologia science text. I will need to purchase a few notebooking journals. By using Apologia Science I can combine the four younger children.

Okay, gotta go. My Sweets finished playing Dutch Blitz with the children and needs to use the computer now.

  1. Peace comes with those final decisions :) I'm anxiously awaiting AAR Level 1. I hope it works for us. My daughter is really enjoying the Pre-Level 1.

    Is the favorite places working for you now? It looks like it on my end.
