So maybe the Standard version is the way to go?
My understanding is that there are many people who feel this is not needed in the younger grades. Children will still learn it, but not until slightly older. I don't really know where I fall in thinking they should or should not have it at a younger age. I choose US because from what I've seen it is more popular (though that could simply be because it's been around longer) and because it is what the makers of the boxed curriculum I use suggests. They fall into the category of thinking children don't need it until later. So far, their suggestions have always been good for us. But, I have thought about changing. I'm totally on the fence though.
