The biggest change I see is that Genesis for Kids is replaced by Science in the Beginning. Is that scheduled in the grid and notes?
Thanks so much!
Hi Wendy, nice to "see" you here this weekend!
Here are all the things I can think of. Maybe others will add more.
1. The new science is scheduled in the manuals as of very recently, replacing Genesis For Kids & Archimedes (both of which are still available as enrichment items).
2. Some books changed editions over the years. For instance, the Art program went to a 2-volume set. Actually, almost every book has changed covers or publishers since we used CTG (Journey, Feasts, Pyramid is now paperback, some covers of read-alouds and CDs look different) but I don't think it will matter, unless you have an edition that has slightly different page numbers than your manual.
3. And of course the manual covers now reflect the Discover/Investigate/Declare stages and the student sheets have been pulled out. I haven't heard of many actual changes to the student sheets other than better print & nicer pages (some cardstock etc).
4. The CTG set includes the Fast Facts for math drill.
