Dictation

Hello! My son will be coming back home this year and back to HOD! He has been in school the last 3 years. So where do we start with dictation? He will be in 7th grade in the fall. Do we just start in the beginning at level one? He was doing it before he went to school. Any help would be great :D Sally

Rod and Staff English help

My son is using English 5 and is not retaining. He has used 3 and 4 also. We do most of it orally, do the review at the beginning, and some written. I have bought the workbooks that go along with them in the past. He is in 7th grade this year and I am getting concerned. I'm not sure what to do next....
