  1. With Zaner-Bloser, would you say to buy the Teacher's Edition book or is it not necessary? Thank you for your thoughtful reply! Very helpful!
  2. When do you suggest starting cursive practice and what are some good choices for books? I have heard about traditional cursive vs slant print or simplified cursive. Can anyone tell me what these mean? Thank you!!!!
  3. I've read some reviews where some say Berean Builders Science in the Beginning is appropriate for early elementary and others recommend it for late elementary to jr. high. Their website says K-6, so I'm wondering if anyone has successfully (or unsuccessfully) used in in 2nd grade. I definitely do not want it to be over their heads. Thank you!
  4. Looking for a book or books on the original fairy tales. Thank you!
  5. I am using RightStart B and C, and want to supplement a little (change it up a bit). I have heard about Singapore Intensive Practice, Singapore's Challenging Word Problems, and Evan-Moor Daily Word Problems. Does anyone have any experience with these? I am looking for something at the RS B/C levels but also a bit challenging for them. Thank you!!!
  6. Thank you so much!
  7. I am not super confident at teaching Science to my 1st grader. We tried the recommendations outlined in The Well-Trained Mind book, and we've been reading books on animals and creating questions and trying to answer them. But I am looking for something a little more structured, where I can open a book and just go. I do like the order of science subjects suggestions in WTM; for instance, biology (study of animals, human body, and plants) in first grade ... Any suggestions on a curriculum that might fit my needs, for a non-science-y mom? I'd prefer a faith-based curriculum. And I'd much rather prefer something enjoyable even if it means it's a bit less rigorous. Thank you!
  8. I am looking for a historical fiction type novel about ancient Egypt for a first grader. He currently listens to books like Dr. Doolittle and the Wizard of Oz. I am looking for something at this same reading level. Thank you!
  9. Looking for fun and engaging online resources about Ancient Egypt.
  10. My first grader loves fiction and will sit for long periods of time to read with me. We are starting to read more non-fiction as he starts first grade (think Usborne-like books about the ancients). I'm just curious as to how long I should read these type of non-fiction books in a sitting. He doesn't really care for them much. I want to introduce history this year but need to find a way to incorporate these books without too much struggle.
  11. Thank you! I didn't even know what forum I was in 🙂 I'll repost in the right one
