  1. I have SWR but I want something simpler. I came across TATRAS and Phonics for Reading and Spelling. Does anyone have any experience with either? How easy was it to implement?
  2. I was looking at this program for my boys instead of AAR because of the games and songs. My daughter did well with AAR but my boys are not let's sit down and do a paper activity kind of guys. Has anyone used this program? What did you think? Can you compare it to AAR?
  3. We used AAR with my daughter but then I came across Go Phonics and I was thinking of using it with my sons because it includes games for each sound and it includes spelling, handwriting and a little bit of parts of speech. Does anyone have any experience with Go Phonics? Is it as thorough as AAR? Which would you go with if money wasn't the issue? Thanks!
  4. I'm switching to a different math with my daughter but it doesn't cover geometry, measurement or things like graphs. Can you suggest some good, hands on resources to teach those things? I'd rather not use MM. Thanks!
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. 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 s
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
