We use Saxon Phonics at our school. I enjoy most of it, but half way throgh second grade, there are so many little things to remember (when it comes to coding words and such) that grades drastically drop.
Students at the first school are ages 3 to 12. About half of the students
are under the age of 7 to 8 years old. The teachers all share in the
responsibilities of teaching demonstration classes and carrying out
the placement tests
