Thorough Language ARts...is there "one?"

Postby eljomom » Thu Jun 30, 2011 12:22 pm

Hi there,
I am seriously going crazy trying to decide on curriculum for my rising 2nd, 4th and 7th/6th graders next year. 2nd grader still struggling to read. Did FLL 1 with her this past year. 4th did FLL 3 in 3rd. 7th did no grammar for past two years (since we started homeschooling).

Considering:

Shurley (looks overwhelming and also they don't diagram..and time to do with 3 kids??)

Abeka Language (Just grammar for oldest)

Easy Grammar just for oldest

BJU Press All Language Arts for younger 2 (again, time to teach??? and I prefer real books)

Rod & Staff Hear it's good too

FLL 2 and 4 for younger two, but this ONLY covers grammar...not really usage, mechanics, etc

MCT or GWG---mixed reviews on both of these.

I know a lot of it is subjective, but really hoping for some input on what is a solid program. Thanks!
