Spalding Method

The more and more I go through the recent edition of the Spalding book, the more wonderful I think it will be for the older kids in particular. A lot of it could easily be adapted to the Montessori method, but I'm going to be requiring it as remedial work for at least two of the kids. I'm also going to try to adapt it to a French sequence as I think the systematic approach with lots of review is just with the 15yo needs to gain some confidence.

I would never consider using it as it for a younger child (that is, as long as I'm following Montessori), but for the older child who needs some extra help, it's very, very good.
