Part 1 in this series will cover resources for Grammar, Copywork and Dictation. Each of the resources below will include a link to the author’s website and if available, I have linked to a review. Reviews from other moms that have used the curriculum is the best way to learn about these resources because they will give you an honest opinion of what worked for them, what they liked about it and didn’t like about it. So if you are interested in a particular program, read those reviews for helpful information!
