Life of Fred: Too good not to continue!

by Sheila
(Texas)

Our experience with Life of Fred.

After finishing a computer textbook math program, my son did very well in figuring out how to do a problem; however, he had difficulty figuring out when to use the formula to real life situations.

After working through a Life of Fred book, he was able to figure that out more clearly. The story uses life situations and is hilarious, engaging the reader emotionally. As Charlotte Mason advocated, getting the student emotionally involved in the learning cements the information in the brain.

I had my son work through each of the bridges for repetition. The next book, Algebra, we will use the Home Companion for repetitive work. If necessary, I will find additional problems to supplement, but the curriculum is too good not to continue.
