  1. GREAT PRICE... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Sep 2017

    This set is at a great price. There were a few books that I won't be using but it was less expensive to buy the set than it would have been for me to purchase the ones I needed individually. I haven't started using the curriculum yet but I have been through them and have my our school year all planned out so I believe it's going to be a great year filled with a strong foundation of core knowledge.

  4. Fairley Good Homeschool Package 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Nov 2016

    I really thought this Homeschool Package was pretty well put together. The only thing I had a problem with, was the Math. There were no teachings in the book about how to actually work some of the problems or how to come up with the answers. It just threw problems at you to solve without explaining how. My little niece, as well as I , was totally lost on what the heck to do or how to go about working the problems. The Math does not seem to be 6th grade level at all. My neighbor , whom is in College, say's that it somewhat the kind of Math SHE does, and SHE has problems understanding it. We will have to figure out what to do next about the Math part of her Schooling.
