  1. Hi Erica, I am doing Orton-Gillingham tutoring with a older student who is following this curriculum in a co-op. Having access to the vocabulary words of RoadTrip USA would be helpful in teaching spelling rules, syllable divisions, and dictation. What is the best way to have this? If I must purchase the curriculum, may I purchase only text and donate the curricular activities (leave them with you to give to whomever you choose, in other words)? I don’t need the whole shebang to do my job, as lovely as it all looks!
    Thanks for your consideration~

    1. Hi Mary,
      Unfortunately I don’t have just the vocab for sale, so yes, you’ll have to purchase the curriculum. It’s a PDF download, so there’s not really any activities to donate.

    1. There really isn’t much religious content in the Road Trip Curriculum other than the history reading which talks about people leaving England to escape religious persecution, etc. So historical content does include religious information, where applicable.

  2. Plan to use this with my first grader this upcoming year. My question is I know you have recommended readers for each section but I am wondering if living books could be used in place. I want to add beautiful picture books to our morning basket to be used to accompany this study.
