If I'm capable of teaching the concepts on my own, how necessary is the TM for grade 3? :unsure:

Unless you want to work all the problems every day to correct his papers I'd say it's worth a lot;) Even when they are easy it's a pain in the behind to have to do them all.

Good point! :lol: But what about the actual teaching time? It's just sooo scripted, which isn't bad, I'm just to winging it, KWIM?

It doesn't take much to bring the lazy girl in me out;):lol: I wouldn't worry about it for the actual teaching, just correcting papers. If you can buy an answer key for less than the TM I'd probably do that but can't remember if that's an option. When I used Saxon I used DIVE so I didn't use the instruction part of the TM, just the answer key.
