  1. I believe the recommendation in TWTM is to start foreign language in the 3rd grade. But I'd like to start with my boys this year. They are fascinated and excited by the connections I've pointed out between Latin and English, and how the roots of so many words come from Latin. The other day they were excited to tell Mom all about why the dorsal fin on a fish is called a dorsal fin, LOL. Are there downsides to starting now? This will be our first year homeschooling and I don't want to overwhelm them... Or me. But their enthusiasm is contagious! Thanks for any advice or recommendations.
  2. Thanks so much for the quick answer! I figured it was something like that. I'll stick with the HIG.
  3. Hello all, This is my first post here, so hopefully I won't unwittingly break any etiquette rules! I searched back several pages and tried using the search function, but didn't come up with much. Is anyone familiar with the differences between the homeschool guide and teachers guide? Is the teachers guide more robust or something? Any recommendations? Background: This is our first year homeschooling, we'll be teaching our twin sons who both do well with math and should probably be doing more difficult work than what school assigned last year. They would be starting 2nd grade this year. The school uses Envisions Math from Pearson, which is supposed to be aligned with common core standards. We plan on using using the US Editions of Singapore math, deciding on the levels after we have the boys try the diagnostic tests on their websites. Any advice is much appreciated!
