Levels Used: the first 50 lessons
Dates Used: 2007
Likes: It would be a good program for a patient child who needs lots of repetition, isn't bothered by repetition, and did I say likes repetition?
I liked that everything was included in the book - no extra prep, no making flashcards, no rounding up other materials. My daughters liked the occasional funny story. It wasn't enough to finish the program, however.
Dislikes: We all hated the repetition and the scripting. My youngest child (4) couldn't handle the writing portions, due to fine motor control issues, so she skipped those. Eventually, "lesson time" was such a whiny, irritating disaster that we dropped it, took a break, and picked up a different program in the fall.
