    Saxon

    Our school uses Saxon--grades K-8. We like it pretty well. The downfall (as mentioned) is that there is often not enough practice when a skill is taught--and the books certainly are not bright and colorful. The upside is that our children that are in the system do quite well on testing and it certainly continually reviews and tests.

    I teach a 3-4 combination and that's hard because it takes the 4th a lot longer to do their work than the 3rd. In my opinion the third don't have enough work to do. I guess there is the option of worksheets in 4th as well, but we have never used them.

    I think there is way too much teacher direction with 3rd--everything is scripted for you--and not enough for 4th--really nothing but the answers and the lesson set.
