  1. How do you choose which books to listen to vs which to read aloud? Do you buy a print copy of a book you have on audio?
  2. @Gil A fair amount re: space and money. To give a better idea of what I'm looking for - we have translated copies of Jill Barkem and Beatrix Potter books that I find suitable, both in translation and context. Would like more along those lines. On our last trip, we picked up some good living books on artists which we enjoyed. I hadn't considered the K-grade anthologies - I will certainly look into that. Thank you!
  3. I find it really difficult to find quality children's literature in Spanish. Many translated texts are awful. I've had the most success when I travel to South America and scour the bookstores there but even then, its a struggle because we steer clear of fantasy for under 6s (anthropormorphic animals okay) and prefer life-like illustrations.
  4. What are your absolute favorites? We're listening to a full cast of Winnie the Pooh - are there any particular narrators of Winnie the Pooh you prefer? Thoughts on the Stories in Music series?

    Thank you, all. This has been very helpful!

    @wendyroo Definitely was referring to dedicated book work-type time allocation - thanks for your insight. Would you care to share some of the curriculum/resources, if any, you use in K4 and K5?
  7. @chocolate-chip chooky For me, Montessori means hands on, sequential, and child-led. I see this being most beneficial in math, which is why I am attracted to the Right Start program. I am flirting with the idea of pulling her out entirely so the afterschooling efforts are a dry run for that and, as such, I'd like to start with resources that I can carry into full time home education, if that's the route we opt for. I'm really interested in your decision to pull your child at 5 years old. Would it be possible to DM you to discuss, assuming of course you're open to it?
  8. How much time do you dedicate a day to your K-4 and K-5? Do you hit all major subjects each day or alternate? We're considering pulling our eldest from her Montessori school. Any recommendatons for resources within the classical sphere but with a slight Montessori bent (Right Start Math comes to mind) so it's not a complete shock to her system? She'll be 4 when we pull her and currently (at 3.5) has basic mathematical literacy (can do 1:1 up to 15, recognize number symbols up to 10, simple addition) and literacy skills (knows her letter sounds, can write a few). As an aside, has anyone here had experience with transitioning a child (around 1st grade) from Montessori to Classical education? One more slightly off topic question, do you do audiobooks AND print of the same stories or keep them seperate. Meaning, if you're listening to, say, Peter Pan will you also keep a print copy to read it aloud? Thanks in advance! xposted
  9. Our youngest is in a Montessori preschool half day but still naps two hours each day so I'm struggling to see where we can set aside some time for afterschooling. How much time do you dedicate a day to your K-4 and K-5? Do you hit all major subjects each day or alternate? I'm also interested in resources within the classical sphere but with a slight Montessori bent (Right Start Math comes to mind) so that what we work on at home can be aided by, and in turn aid, what she's learning in school.
