I'm exploring my curriculum options for kindergarten, and I'm pretty torn. I've used (in my own school years) and am familiar with the Alpha Omega LifePac system, and my budget is limited this year, so that's looking fairly attractive.

However, many of my real-life friends who have homeschooled have recommended the aBeka program, which looks great but is cost-prohibitive.

I've been looking online at Alpha Omega's Weaver curriculum, and I was wondering if anyone's ever used it (for any grade level) and if so, did you like it? What were the best features? Was it teacher-friendly as well as student-friendly?

I am looking for a structured curriculum as my daughter and I both thrive on structure and easy organization. Thanks!

Abeka - wonderful, but extremely expensive.
Rod & Staff - wonderful, inexpensive, but extremely Christian (which I like... some don't)
Weaver - haven't actually used it, but I know it's good for kids who are on multiple levels depending on subject and/or who learn in spurts rather than very smoothly like most kids do ... it's a money saver in that aspect for some people
Lifepacs - boring!!
