    That is a very common question. I had it myself when we started this program over five years ago. In fact, I did not see any value in Language Arts Extensions so I decided we would just skip it. What I found is that my son struggled with reading. When he was in third grade I started to realize the importance of the basic reading tools that are taught in LAE. We went back to the beginning and worked through the LAE work. What did I find out? His reading began to rapidly improve. So I would say that LAE focuses more on actual reading skills. They provide the tools necessary for good reading ability. LA provides the tools for vocabulary, sentence structure, sounds of the letters, and things like that. You can look at the overview to see what is offered in each subject for each grade level.
