I am currently using Sing Song Latin. Oftentimes, when I do a review for a homeschool company, the review is my first exposure to the product. Moral lessons are skillfully woven throughout, as you work your way through concepts ranging from easy sentence construction to more challenging changing point of view from third person to first person by the end of the book.

Overall, it's less cumbersome to me than IEW. Believe me, there is no reason to be scared of using a classical program — Classical Academic Press makes the classical method of learning so easy and attainable. My boys have sensory issues, and trying to hold a workbook flat while writing is just too difficult for them.

In our house, the whole subject of writing has been the most challenging aspect of our curriculum.
