Now, as to Level 3, the first thing that I do not like is the fact that I had to buy two books. You have to buy the student workbook since she references it up to 11 times per lesson. Level 2 does not require a workbook and that worked out perfect for us. I do not like having to purchase an entirely separate book and based on the first 9 weeks, other than having him follow along in the book, I will not be using the pages. My son works better if he can learn about grammar by writing on the board or spreading words out on the floor. The authors' approach is very monotonous as stated but other reviewers but you can make adjustments to fit your student. For instance, I do not have my son repeat a definition 5-10 times per lesson. If he can tell me the definition in his own words and put the rule to use then we move on until we review the concept, which is done weekly through grammar games that I make up.
I love this series because it directs me in an organized fashion as to what he needs to know at his age and this alone makes the book worth the money. There are sample schedules at the back of the book that I use as a guide post but modify to fit his learning curve. It is a rigorous grammar program for his age but it is done in an easy step-by-step approach that does not make it overwhelming for him. She builds on the concepts over the 36 weeks and does frequent reviews of all the topics covered. He actually enjoys his grammar lessons and can easily tell you what all the parts of speech do, which none of his public school friends can do.
I would highly recommend this book without reservations but be prepared to make adjustments as necessary since I do not know any child who would like repeating definitions everyday and the workbook to me is not that helpful (I would rather have him work on notebook paper if the concept requires it). Happy teaching!!
