I absolutely love R&S English. My kids really get it. We used Abeka before and they got it for the most part but Rod and Staff breaks it down even more for them. Its more writing because they don't write in the books but that's the way I grew up learning English and I came out fine. I plan on using the English for as long as I can.

Its very straight forward and plainly laid out, not a lot of colors or pictures, yet the material is a tad challenging for her, which I like. She is actually learning the material and not getting distracted with pretty pictures or difficult language. My mom used R&S on me during 6th and 7th. I really accelerated.

This is our first year to Homeschool and I just happened to find Rod and Staff English 4th grade at our local half price bookstore. I bought the teacher and student books right then. Came home did some research and found they were pretty cheap...(made me happy) :) So I ordered the worksheet and tests for 4th grade and then ordered the 5th grade set.
Needless to say after looking at them and using them with my kids we will not use any other English Curriculum. This is the most advanced and thorough curriculum I have found. It surpassed my expectations and my kids are learning more with this than any other. It's not easy, but they will learn and be able to understand the concepts of English.
The ONLY complaint my kids have...needs more color. :)
Other than that we are totally happy with the order and the way things are taught. We will use this until college. Thank you Rod and Staff.
We have also used their Spelling, which is amazing, and penmanship for my 4th grader.

Rod & Staff for Grades 3 and 5
This is the first year we have used Rod & Staff after trying Write Source, Winning with Writing/Grammar, Learning Language Through Literature and First Language Lessons. I absolutely love this program, and my girls are flourishing under it.
I have read several previous, well-written reviews that say everything I would say and more! This is the program that we will stay with throughout the upcoming years. Thank you to all the wonderful reviewers who left such thorough and enlightening reviews. I agree with most, if not all of the positive comments I have read below.
