    Did you do America's Story 1? How did you like it? I'm seriously considering using this for my 3rd and 6th graders.

    6th Grade 2019-2020!

    Oldest DD will be starting 6th grade. My baby's growing up! 😢 Bible-PAC Running the Race (she's doing the 5th grade book, Possessing the Land, right now and really enjoys it), SCM Scripture memory system, devotions with Daddy, personal Bible reading Hymn Study-Mr. Pipes books, Then Sings My Soul Poetry-undecided Art-I reeeeally want to use Creating a Masterpiece but have another art program sitting on the shelf that she ought to finish first. We'll see... Math-CLE Math 600 Grammar-CLE L.A. 600 or CAP Well-Ordered Language or ??? We've used CLE since 1st grade but it seems like she could use some more review on some of the basics. I also really want to focus on writing this year so we may have an easier year of grammar review. Writing-IEW Not sure where to start with this but want to look at it at convention next month. History-Notgrass America the Beautiful or Master Book's American Story or ??? Science-God's Design or BJU or ??? Piano Lessons

    Oh, fun! Books are my weakness, too. Would you mind sharing some of the titles you purchased? I love reading and gleaning from other people's book lists.

    Homeschool Blog Wish List

    Detailed curriculum reviews, but only on curriculum that you've actually used. One of my pet peeves is trying to find opinions on a product and dredging up reviews that are basically letting everyone know that blogger was sent item free of charge, all opinions are her own, and... oh wait, she actually hasn't used it for longer than two weeks, but it's a great curriculum and the blog reader really should buy it! 🙄

    Self Taught Readers

    I'm not sure if this counts or not since I did teach my daughter the letter sounds, but she basically taught herself to read by looking at Dick and Jane books. I heard her reading them one day and was shocked that she knew what the words were. I had never done any formal phonics program with her.
  11. I love this and think DD would too. I don't think DD has any intuitive sense of grammar at all. She reads very, very well, communicates well and has an advanced vocabulary, but also tends to shut down when faced with new, or in her mind, challenging, material. But I know, grammar is challenging! I guess I just want to make sure I'm doing my best to present it in an understandable way. Does anyone have any suggestions for games or supplements that would help?
  12. ...what do you do? My DD is doing CLE Language Arts 500, and while she can easily spot a noun, pronoun, verb, etc. she has great difficulty figuring out whether a noun is a subject, direct object, indirect object, etc. or if a verb is a helping, linking, or being verb. Any advice on a better explanation for her to really understand? I don't want to move ahead without her comprehending, but I also know that she'll study this again in later grades.

    Talk me into buying an Instant Pot (or not)

    I've had mine about a year. I tried all sorts of entrees in it at first, but after a while I've figured out in what ways it really shines and just use it for those things. I use mine almost daily for: boiled eggs - BEST boiled eggs ever yogurt - I make this about once a week. Very, very simple and the end product is thick, rich Greek yogurt that isn't full of sugar and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. brown rice - very simple and perfect texture mac n cheese - super quick and perfect for kids' lunch soup - You can achieve the flavor of an all-day-simmer-on-the-back-of-the-stove chili or soup with a just a few minutes in the IP. chicken stock - Throw a carcass, some veggies and water in there and you'be got rich, golden broth in a half hour. It's been totally worth it for me.
