This is the program my son used way back in 2000 when we first started homeschooling---it's incredibly thorough and really creates skilled readers I was told by a rep at whatever curriculum catalog I purchased this from that my son would be reading at the level of last year of 2nd grade and boy was she right! I remember it being very teacher intensive but very enjoyable for both my son and myself I see there is now a CDROM for teacher but my program had very ed lessons contained in 2 teacher manuals I had no idea this program was still around but I highly recommend it for anyone wishing to have a very strong reader

My first impression of this program is that it is unbelievably comprehensive I've never taught a child to read before and there is a lot more to it than I expected - all of it covered here The children's materials are attractive with nice stories in the readers The guidelines for the handwriting exercises are much smaller than we're used to - I'll have to see if my daughter can print such small lettersMy only gripe is with the teacher's materials The pdf files were apparently scanned in from a printout rather than converted from the original document which means that the text is not sharp and easy to read but is quite blurry and swims on the page The font is small so reading more than a little at a time hurts my eyes I plan to call the publisher and see if they can provide me with pdf files directly converted from the word processing documents Those would be much easier to read And there is *a lot* to read Be prepared to print 1000 pages!All in all though I feel well-prepared to teach reading with this program which a veteran homeschool friend recommended

Very pleased with not only the price, but the quality of this curriculum. My daughter loves it, the manipulatives are great, and this website has the best price on the entire package!

Excellent!
My daughter is 8 years old and we are starting at the beginning and able to get through all of these lessons, cementing skills for learning to read. Spelling is also being reinforced. If she was 5 this would be too hard as reading has not come easily to her but at age 8 this is getting us through all basic skills, rules and practices needed to help her become a proficient reader. She is confident and happy to do her lessons. Love this program! I do wish that I had a teacher book already printed as the downloads are lengthy & repetitive so I haven't printed them yet. I would've paid more to just have a teacher book already printed and provided to me.

Well, I worked in a Christian School, and the kindergarten teacher recommended these books for my grandson. She rated these books with high marks, and I trusted her words.

This is one of the strongest language series available. We have been very happy with it in the past.

I wanted to get this to use in conjunction with another program for one of the my children who has language issues and needs some extra reinforcement. I would also like to use this to start working with a Kindergartener and a very precocious three year old.

We have had outstanding results with our kindergarten students when using this curriculum. The backpack and stuffed animal is a nice gift to our students at the start of kindergarten.

I taught using this curriculum. The Kindergarteners were reading in 1 month!!! It is a good, Christian curriculum. Now I am looking forward to teaching my children to read.

Because my little sisters used it to learn to read! It was called something else back then
