2011-2012 Fifth Grade
This year Christian Light Education switches from 10 units to 5 for reading to allow students to spend more time with other subjects such as writing. I will be using a different writing program from the one they recommend. Also, the answer keys are now sold separate from the teacher’s guide for most subjects. I’m excited about his biology book because it was written by my college biology professor and I really enjoyed his class. Richard got to meet him and discuss the book at the curriculum fair.
