  1. I will check all of those out! Thanks!
  2. I am looking for a list of some great books somewhere around 2, 3, or 4th grade reading level. Somewhere around the level of Fantastic Mr. Fox or the Baseball Mystery Series or Cam Jensen books. They can be slightly easier or slightly harder, but not scary. I'm looking for good, fun books to read! Thanks! Laura
  3. I am looking for books that teach to specific skills sets as tested on the MAP test: -prefixes, suffixes -synonyms, anonyms -using context clues to determine the connotation of a word -figurative language -the use of word choice on meaning and tone -persuasive techniques Even if I could find short passages that are filled with figurative language and rich word choice and persuasive techniques, I could make up the questions myself. Any ideas? THANKS! Laura
  4. I am looking for some basic supplemental workbooks for my 1st and 2nd graders. I am particularly looking for Geography (US states, countries, oceans, mountains, etc), Spanish (very basic) and Spelling. I need something for them to do independently, where they will get some handwriting practice in and also learn a bit about the topic. I plan on rotating these workbooks to keep them interested. Thanks!
  5. These are great! Thank you! I really like The Reading Detective series!
  6. I am looking for a workbook for a student I tutor who is entering Freshman Honors English. I'm not worried about it being "Honors" but I want to work on reading comprehension - short, hard passages and then comprehension questions and/or short answers. Anyone know of a workbook like this? Thanks, Laura
  7. Thank you! These are great.
  8. I am looking for recommendations for must-read books for SOTW 2. I have the activity book and will use those suggestions as well, but I always like to buy a couple of must-reads. What do you suggest? Thanks, Laura
  9. I'm following this post closely. We are in the middle of AAR 4 and want to know where to go next. I'm also curious to know about grade level for AAR 3 and 4.
  10. I wanted to add, the whole goal of this is to not forget stuff over summer break.
  11. We are winding down with school for the year. I like to have the summer off; however, I do want to sprinkle in a little school on a weekly basis. I am trying to figure out a good balance, but I'm not sure what this actually looks like. I'm definitely hoping for less than an hour maybe 3 to 4 days per week. We will do read alouds together, so I have that taken care of. For math, we will slowly go through Kate Snow's multiplication facts book, but Phonics and Handwriting - these are the two areas I'm not exactly sure how to assign over the break. My older son is currently in the middle of
  12. This information is great! Very helpful! Thank you!
  13. Our lawn is full of weeds. We've never used anything on our grass because our kids are always on it. It's something I'm pretty adamant about. But we live by beautifully manicured lawns (they look like soft green blankets!) and my husband is getting antsy about it. Just curious what people use on their lawns, especially anyone who has found something considered safe and organic.
  14. I am an SAT tutor. Here is what I do. There are free SAT practice tests online (google SAT practice test 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ...). I have used the first 8 but I'm sure there are tons more. I print out the reading and writing/grammar sections and then the answers (separate pdf). I take these tests myself first and then correct the answers. After 4 or 5 of these passages, you will get a good feel for what the test questions are like. Practice will build confidence fast. I recommend SAT Prep Black Book (newest edition) if you feel at all uncomfortable with taking the test yourself. This w
