  1. Were they very clear and easy to understand? Did you use all 3 levels? Do you think the program is worth it? Thank you for your responses!
  2. For those of you that have used Professor B, would you get the CDs or the Workbook/Teachers manual combo. I want to supplement LOF along with some of the Boxcars and One Eyed Jacks books but I'm not sure what's best or easiest between the two option. If the workbooks are easy to implement I'd like to do that but if the CDs actually add something I'll get those. I wish they had samples of the books online.
  3. Thank you! I'd seen the videos but I was trying to get a better feel of some of the other books that I see on their website. We have the RightStart game book but my kids absolutely hate those games but we've played a few of the Box Cars games I found online and they liked those so I was trying to figure out if the books were worth it. I wish they would give more info on the site. There's even a literacy one that I wonder if I could pair with our reading and spelling programs but I'm scared to order and it's a whole bunch of games to memorize site words or something.
  4. I'm trying to supplement our LOF journey with games to really reinforce concepts and I came across this company. Does anyone have any experience with them? Which books are your favorites? Anything you could tell me would be great because theres not a whole lot of information on their website. Thank you!
  5. I'd really like to dig in and go topically kind of like MUS but I don't want to use MUS and we really like MM. Has anyone used the Blue books as their main curriculum instead of a supplement? I know the website has an outline of which books you should probably cover when but I'd like to hear some real experiences and opinions.
  6. I'm trying to find a fun way for my 8 year old to learn her facts. The quicker the better but I'm more concerned about how well she gets them down. We have the Facts that Stick books by Kate Snow but she's finding the activities/games boring so I'm looking at these programs. Any experience with these? Any other suggestions?
  7. Thanks, I have the WTM but I guess in was hoping for something a little more....exhaustive to choose from. Thats why I started looking into the timeline books. I think what I'm looking for just may not exist.
  8. I've decided to just read books and do activities for science and history with my second grader because we can't find a curriculum that will work for us after A LOT of searching. I figured that we would do 2 years of American History with geography and then two years of World History before we go into a 4 year cycle of history. I'd like to sort of interest led science in the early years and then pick up in maybe 7th or 8th grade with formal curriculum. We are both excited about this but a piece of me doesn't want to leave anything important out so I was wondering if there were any lists for science concepts to cover and the same for history. I'd like a list of important people, places and events for american and then world history. It may be too much to ask. I've looked at several of timeline books but nothing is exactly what I'm looking for. Thank you for any suggestions you can give me!
  9. Thank you! Yes that helped a lot. Do you think I could get away with just the manual and readers like someone else suggested? My daughter isn't keen on the activities.
  10. I asked for some advice on another thread and someone advised continuing the AAR program but just using the manual and readers since my daughter hates the activity sheets but I really like the program. Has anyone done this? Would you say its a good idea?
  11. How do I test their reading level?
  12. Ok, my daughter is finishing level 2 but just for kicks I gave her the placement tests. Well she aced the level 3 and 4 tests. I'm pretty shocked but maybe it's all the reading aka reading the subtitles when mommy is watching foreign movies and films that helped her so much. So my question is, so I just continue with the program because it seems like it explains the whys to her which would help her if she came across other words she needed to figure out. Right? Then I was also considering just going through OPGTR with her just to make sure but it seems so watered down. Or am I over thinking reading? Will she learn all the rules too in AAS? We just started level 1 of that and I got The Phonics Game to hopefully reinforce some rules too. What about multisyllable words? I keep seeing people say AAR will take her through high school level reading while OPGTR stops around 4th. I don't want to spend the money if I don't have to because there's soooooo many other things in my RR cart right now. Lol! Help me please!
  13. That is so crazy! I clicked on that link so many times and then i click your link and boom! Thank you!
  14. After reading so many glowing reviews I decided to take a look and maybe try it but I can only find it used. Is it no longer published or am I just looking in the wrong places? Thanks!
