do any of you use either one of these?  I am looking for 3/4 4/5 grades and not sure what a good source is to get them from.  drops ina  bucket is from frog press, and the plaid phonics is modern day curriculum.  Any feedback would be appreciated.

I have been using the plaid phonics and really like it for my son, yet my daughter likes books that are just black and white print.  I think it depends on the child.

Have you tried Rainbow Resource?  They typically have the best prices.  The next best place is CBD.



Both are "Christian" sites, but sell plenty of secular curricula.

We use Drops in a Bucket....I bought them from Frog Press.  We really like them because they reinforce concepts learned earlier.
