“The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men
Gang aft agley” – Robert Burns (1758)
Our best laid schemes were to write a complete elementary program for Lightning Lit from Grades 1 through Grade 6 in just six years. Unfortunately, the time pressures of this schedule, and of field testing, have become untenable for a staff our size. Each grade is more complex than the last, and we don’t intend to allow the quality to slide in future grades. Since we want to produce the best possible product, we find keeping to our original plan impossible. We will not be field testing Grades 4 through 6, and future Lightning Lit elementary grades will be available as completed products when they are finished.
For those of you who have participated already, we send our thanks and hope you feel you have laid the best possible language arts foundation for your children. For those of you who have just signed up for Grade 4, we offer our apologies and hope you will have time to find a program that will be a good substitute.
Grades 1 and 2 are already available, and Grade 3 will be available for sale by September. We will contact you when Grade 4 is finished and offer you a substantial discount for its purchase. Thank you for your understanding.
