Teaching Textbooks - We're currently using Teaching Textbooks 4, and I can't say enough good things about this program.  You can read my (and Haley's) review here.  We just received our 3rd grade version.  We've been using Saxon, but due to the boys absolutely begging to use Haley's Teaching Textbooks, we decided to switch.  I cannot say enough good things about this program!  We LOVE it!!!

Timez Attack - This is a program to aid in the memorization of the times tables.  My kids really enjoy it.  You can read my review here.

English, Grammar & Writing

Startwrite 5.0 - Since writing my original review, we have purchased this product.  I use it for copywork, notebooking, lapbooking and so much more.  This is definetely a valuable resource in my school room.  You can read my review here.


We use Story of the World currently, along with various unit studies.  I'm always trying out new things and decided to try out Mystery of History.  You can read my comparison and review here.
