Still Using ACE...An updated Review
A few years ago, I posted a review of ACE.
Since then we moved from NY to NC and a few people have asked for an updated review.
Here it is...I'm still using ACE. We still love it!! It's a great curriculum for us!!
Sarah , also known as Flippin Princess is 10 now. She's in 5th grade. This year we decided to join a Classical Conversations Community. We used a Classical Curriculum with ACE, Claritas in the past, but wanted the community for David, my 7 y/o son.
David, also known as Daveman2011, is now in 2nd grade and doing all ACE and Classical conversations Foundations.
Sarah is doing Foundations and Essentials. ACE and our other classical curriculum, MORE than prepared her for Essentials. She is fitting right in, doing her diagramming and loving it!!
David is enjoying ALL of ACE 2nd grade and Foundations memory work. It's a lot but because ACE is so easy to implement, we've not had a problem
We also school year round, taking July off. CC is only 24 weeks of the year, giving us plenty of time to review our memory work and finishing up our Paces.
I think ACE gives you the best of both worlds. It's a fully comprehensive curriculum , that can be used alone. IF you want to supplement, you can take any Science or Social Studies topic and create a unit study using the CM or Classical method.
ACE makes the teachers job easier. That means that it's easy for us homeschooling moms.
This gives us extra time for trips the museum, gymnastics and fun!!!
