  1. I think Analytical Grammar is excellent. It is very straightforward and builds from lesson to lesson. I have not used the Junior, only the regular level. In each lesson, you learn one concept and then practice it on 5 worksheets. Each lesson builds on the previous. there only 10 or so lessons per year. Once you complete all the lessons for the year, you just do review. It is an easy, painless and very effective program. You can complete in 1, 2 or 3 years. I took 3 years for each of my children to complete it, which was perfect. Each year they are learning new things, no boring re-t
  2. I can't tell you how many times people on this board have really helped me out. I don't know how I would homeschool without it! Thank you, thank you , thank you!:001_smile:
  3. that will mostly be self directed by my daughter. She requires one year of American History and one year of World History. She is not that interested in history, so I mostly just want her to enjoy it and meet the requirement. Please help me with suggestions. I am considering Notgrass, but would not use the bible or literature component. What would be easiest for me? My daughter is currently in 9th grade. We have used Amblesideonline for our history in the past. She is doing the ao year 9 reading this year, but there is no writing component, other than narrations, or tests, etc. that are
  4. My 14 yo dd is beginning 9th grade this Fall. Last year she completed Primary Mathematics 6B and she got about 1/3 of the way through Discovering Mathematics 1A. I am planning on her completing one level of DM each year of high school. I am worried, however, that that will not be enough. Will that be enough to prepare her for the SAT? If not, what should i do? Also, for high school, she is required to have Algebra I and II, Geometry and one other math course of her choosing. Will DM provide this? Should I use something different or supplement? How can I label and award credit
  5. Actually, I don't think DM1 had much review. It seems to jump right into new information. We are planning on doing math year round to help her get through all the levels. I need to do that with all my children, as we never seem to get enough math done!
  6. My dd (14) is entering 9th grade next year. She is about half way though Discovering Mathematics 1A. I am worried that at this rate, she will not be prepared when it comes time for the SAT. How much should I push her? How far through the series does she need to get before the SAT? Thank you!
  7. My 13yo dd is currently using LOF and does not like it. She is in 8th grade right now. She did Singapore up through 6B and liked it very much and did well. She is not going into math or science, she would like to pursue art. So, a really intensive math program is not what I need. She needs to be able to work as independently as possible. What can you recommend? Right now, I am looking at MUS, but would like opinions on that and any other advice. Thanks!
  8. He is now almost eleven and reading at a very high level. There were so many times when he was younger when we were both in tears. This is what I learned from my experience: keep phonics lessons short, 10 minutes a day is fine. But be consistent and do a bit each day. Keep reviewing until he knows what you are teaching before moving ahead. don't worry if it seems to take forever. I do have to admit that I personally just gave up on this and there were some things my son just never got, but eventually he ended up reading anyway. keep reading to him all the time. I read to my so
  9. for a 2nd 5th and 7th grader to do together. 7th grader will also have her own work at a higher reading level. But as a spine to keep them all together, which do you prefer?
  10. it seems quick and easy each day and not teacher intensive. Sounds like what I need. I will let you know how it works out.
  11. this year. What would you recommend as a curriculum?
  12. If I go all the way through the Explode the Code books, will all the spelling rules be covered?
