I used this with my sister ten years ago. I'm using it with Ariana this year, as I already have the teacher's manuals. Although Ariana is 3 1/2, she can read very well (2nd/3rd grade level), spell, and write. This ACE Learning to Read curriculum is at a first grade level, although it's not advanced. It won't be very challenging, but it will be fun. Ariana begs for school every day! She loves to learn. She eats up the "homeschool" books you find at Staples or Wal*Mart. I'd like to do A Beka with her next year, though (first grade again, as theirs is more advanced).

We have Alphabet Island phonics. If she can already read why do you need the ACE?

I don't "need" it, but I had it from when I taught it to my sister, so I figured I'd use it as a way to slide into a routine. I figure because it won't be challenging (but still fun!) it will be a good transition. Better than than BOOM something too challenging. Also, she's only 3 1/2 so I'm in no rush

Besides the Word Building/Learning to read parts they have Math and Animal Science and Bible Reading and other things that will be fun. There is a story and song for each letter of the alphabet. My sister LOVED it when I did it with her, and I really loved teaching it to her!

Oh ok. A lot of learning to read programes are said to be tedious, but that sounds like a lot more then a reading programe. I bet she will have a lot of fun!
