I'm trying to make sense of the 5th grade logic stage and I'm hoping some pros in this can help me!
This is what I'm thinking so far- am I correct? What would you add or subtract?
Writing-Writing With Skill 1
Has anyone done the Creative Writer series offered on WTM website? If so, did you do this at the same time as Writing with Skill or another writing program?
I was looking at AG, but it doesn't suggest to start it until 6th grade. I prefer to stay secular in our learning, so Rod and Staff are out, I guess. Any thoughts on Well Ordered Language or Voyages? We will have finished 1st Language Lessons Level 4 by the end of this year, so I'm at a bit of a loss for what my 10yr old daughter should do in 5th grade.
Spelling Workout F/G
Keyboarding Without Tears
Am I correct that we are going back to reading SOTW1, but this time at a deeper level by including a resource like Kingfisher, timelines, outlines, and narrations?
Life of Fred
Maybe supplement with a little Singapore for additional word problems
Please share with me your recommendations for a biology program for the logic stage. It should be stated I'm not a science minded gal, so I need all the help I can get- whatever you find to be the most complete.
My kids will continue with French which they speak fluently, but maybe we'll add Latin. What's your favorite Latin program?
I know everyone has strong opinions, so let me hear them!! I'm feeling a little overwhelmed entering the logic stage. Oh, and I should mention that I'll be also teaching her little brother in 3rd grade next year, so he'll be doing some of the history and science with her. Thanks!
