I've used books 1-3 with my youngest (haven't yet decided if we'll continue with book 4), but we were using them for spelling/writing practice by the middle of book 2 rather than as a phonics program. We found more success with Progressive Phonics (free!). I'll introduce a new rule that way, and we read together, which keeps it from being too overwhelming. Then I find readers that incorporate what she's learned for practice. As is the case with many kids, her reading ability exceeds her spelling ability, so we found that we could go at a faster pace with Progressive Phonics and slow down ETC for spelling. ETC is a great program, though, although I like it more than she likes it.
