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.

www.rainbowresource.com/index.php

www.christianbook.com/

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.
