I have used these Christian Light Language Arts booklets for 13 years and plan on using them for many more! My now 17 daughter began with these booklets as one who loved to sit and work. THEN, along came the son who (now 14) hated the thought of sitting and writing!!
These booklets (10 per grade level) completely equipped all of my children with the language arts skills needed to be great readers and writers--and they include spelling. They appear simple and a little repetitive, but have done such an amazing job of teaching my children these concepts!!! Even my son (who still doesn't favor sitting still :) has mastered the language concepts and continues to amaze me. My children have done exceptionally well on all standardized tests with no other LA instruction.
As a mother of 7, a doctor, and a lover of SCIENCE, language arts is not my forte. I have to say that I have learned volumes going through these books with my children. That is to say...it is not necessary for you as the teacher to come in to these with expertise in this area. The books are very thorough, and my 3rd grader basically does them without supervision on most days.
You can keep the teacher's guides and just buy new workbooks for each student. I have kept the extra workbooks over the years as well (as some students did not need some of the last books of the year before entering the next level).
These books do NOT have lots of colorful, shiny pages. I thought this might deter my son from using them. However, the lessons are short enough, and the exercises varied enough, that it did keep his interest.
I hope this info will help you in your decision on which LA program you should choose for your family!
