  1. I am interested in seeing how many hours a day other families homeschool. We have our own PSA so no charter and we do all the homeschooling in home. We are using the Charlotte Mason and Thomas Jefferson methods of teaching. We typically start at 9am and finish around 2pm. Is that the average? Sometimes I feel like I need more time. My son is the one that has been taking the longest lately. It takes him FOREVER to finish his work. Not because he does not know what to do but because he is easily detracted and daydreams A LOT. He is not suffering from ANY disabilities what so ever. If I am not siting next to him starring at him he will completely float away to another planet. I have to constantly repeat to him "finish your work", "focus on what you are doing". Something that should take 10-15 min to complete will take an average of an hour for him. Wondering how other parents deal with this? I have been "trying" to incorporate more independent work but with my son it is not working. Are there some suggestions on time management that I can incorporate in my day with him? This has been driving me crazy lately! Thanks before hand to all those that comment.
  2. FYI, Getting Started with Latin will soon has a sequel. Keep Going with Latin. We love the program and have been using it with both our 6th grader. There is an in between the older and the sequel that is called "Linney's Latin Class" and is a free online Latin class. Both my kids have loved it. You can find it here: http://www.linneyslatinclass.com/ Hope this helps
  3. There are 2 AGJ Teacher books. Analytical Grammar and Analytical Grammar Mechanics for the Junior level. They first one is yellow (JAG)and the second one is orange (JAGM). You start off with the yellow one and finish with the orange. I would not recommending starting off with the orange (JAGM) without doing the yellow (JAG) We have finished both....so I have both to send to you if you wanted both. Let me know, I can mail them out today. I will be gone all next week. Nini
  4. Which teacher book are you looking for. I have both the AG Junior books I could send them to you for free. All you would pay for is shipping. Nini
  5. Hi All, We are fairly new to homeschooling and wanted to know if someone can tell me the difference between the IEW writing program and the Analytical Grammar Beyond the book report program. We have finished the Analytical Grammar Jr books (both) and are now starting the Analytical Grammar work books. Can someone please chime in and tell me what they recommend for writing? I am working with kids that were yanked out of public school at 4th & 5th grade in November 2016. They have both excelled with AG and are now doing 6th grade reading and writing. Thanking you all, Nini
  6. We teach modern Greek. Completely different from Ancient Greek. I use the Papaloizos curriculum. Easy to understand and they also have an option online with books, online only or just books. Kids love it and are learning a lot. http://www.greek123.com/
