What We’re Still Using
Just in case you’re wondering, I thought I’d make note of which products we’ve continued to use even after their review periods were concluded:
- CTC Math is Elijah’s regular daily math curriculum. He has completed the Kindergarten and first grade lessons and is about halfway through second grade.
- La La Logic continues to be a favorite around here, especially with Arianna and Elijah
- Horizons 1st Grade Penmanship is another part of Elijah’s daily routine
- Middlebury Interactive Languages doesn’t get used daily, but the boys still do lessons regularly, and I’d like to see them both complete the 2nd semester of Spanish before our subscription runs out.
- The Timeline of Classics and A Word Write Now from IEW are handy references we still turn to on occasion.
- The three audio dramas aren’t currently getting played, but I know the boys (especially Ian) will return to them in the future.
CTC Math and Middlebury Interactive Languages were actually returning favorites from our 2014 Review Year. Ian is also continuing to use Spelling You See, and now that the boys are getting a little older I want to go back to SchoolhouseTeachers.com to see if there are any courses they’d like to try.
There are many products other members of the Crew reviewed in addition to those our family used, so if you want to see what products were the most popular with Crew families, check out the 2015 Blue Ribbon Awards!
