Singapore Early Bird Start-up Science
Posted 22 June 2008 - 09:19 PM
My first thought is to go with CLP's The World God Made as a gentle beginning and then maybe do Singapore with CLP's vol 2, Our Father's World in the fall. I just found Early Bird and thought it looked might be fun to play with now. Any thoughts? We will be using Apologia in the future once my sister is finished with it, so we do like teaching science and God as one. I don't, however, have a problem with secular texts to implement into CLP and Apologia if necessary.
As always, thanks for the informative replies!

I read somewhere that this is new, so that is maybe why I have no takers on my question. Has anyone used this and could it be done by a 5 yr old? We are looking for something simple to go-along with The World God Made. This book seems more informational, so I was interested in the Singapore for more hands on so that I am not buying an expensive science program at this stage. We really just want fun without reinventing a curriculum through the library.

We have actually been using the My Pals Are Here science books since the beginning of this year -- I know they are labeled for 3rd grade and up, and I have to read the instructions/write in the answers for many of the activities, but he likes it better.
Ack! The baby kept me up too much last night and I must be TIRED! I just looked at my son's math and we are actually doing the Early Bird Start-up Science! That is the one he likes. I got confused because I knew we did not pick the kindergarten one (Child's Play Science) -- he likes the grade 1 & 2 Start-Up Science books for all the reasons I stated above. So...yes! It is a good choice, imo.
