    Default All about Reading/Spelling curriculum

    Starting to look at curriculum for next year. My DD will be in first grade. We've been using 100 Easy Lessons to Teach Your Child to Read and its been working great. For next year I'd like more of a full LA program(reading,writing, spelling, etc). Anyone use All About Reading or All About Spelling? Any other recommendations to check out?

    I've used AAR and AAS - I loved both products for my ds, who struggled. They were however, totally overkill for dd, who did not struggle. I really liked that the readers corresponded with what was studied in the week's lesson.

    For that age, I'd look into Bravewriter, which has a bunch of products to support their method of homeschooling. Check out Jot-it-Down - which is a collection of writing projects to complete over a year.

    I've also used and would recommend Mosdos Press. But, I'm not sure what level they begin at. They are the most all-in-one LA program of the other two products.

    I keep seeing Bravewriter and Jot-it-Down mentioned on Instagram people I follow. Are they the same thing or different?

    I love AAR and AAS, my daughter has some huge struggles with reading, and they have helped her a lot.
