Language Arts
So since we are starting a new school year. I thought I would ask what everyone out there uses and why. We have been using Alpha Omega since we started my oldest in 1st grade. It seemed to be the best out there from what I looked at at the time. We taught reading from a different curriculum and I never understood where the spelling was suppose to come in with the Alpha Omega so I have gotten a different spelling curriculum. So I was wondering what other people were using?

We use Mad Libs to learn the parts of speech, and have started Easy Grammar.
But most of our language arts instruction has been informal:
I have them do some writing, then give them pointers on punctuation, grammar, etc. as we discuss what they wrote. If they misspelled anything, I have them write the word 5 times correctly. I tell them that this is not punishment; it is to help them practice writing and seeing the word correctly so that they can learn and remember it.
Writing assignments include letters, stories, book reports, blogging, copywork, and more. Their punctuation still leaves much to be desired, but I think over time, their voracious reading and some copywork/dictation will fix that. I need to make them do more of the latter!
