  1. VACCINATION EXEMPTION PURSUANT TO REVISED CODE OF WASHINGTON: RCW 28A.210.090 3) A written certification signed by any parent or legal guardian of the child or any adult in loco parentis to the child that the signator has either a philosophical or personal objection to the immunization of the child. The State of Washington, your doctor and public health employees cannot force you or your child to be vaccinated. Your child cannot be excluded from a school or public program because you have exercised your right to not vaccinate. http://web.archive.org/web/20041013115614/http://forums.cloud-busters.com/files.cfm?fuseaction=files&profileusersname=messiahmews&briefcasefileidlink=11439 Also please read this: http://www.anairhoads.org/medical/saynotovaccines.shtml and be SURE to sign your OWN waiver. such as the first one I linked you to. good luck!
  2. My 8th grade dd: Bible - King James LLATL Green w/added literature McGuffey's Reader w/Beechick lessons Rays Arithemtic Life of Fred Maths Great Science Adventures (family study) Living Books (family history study) Flute
  3. Marsha, I would put your 7th grader in Green, it has great diagramming exercises in it. ;) I wouldn't want to miss that one, KWIM? It also does a unit on a research paper. :D As far as your 3rd and 4th graders, that's more of a personal call, I think, I'm going to use them on level for my kids (dd9 - orange and ds7 - red). But definitely consider Green for your 7th grader.
  4. Here is a great article by Ruth Beechick re: Grammar http://www.debbiestrayer.com/articles/details.asp?ID=34
  5. We are 'jumping' into LLATL as well and yes it is do-able. I am putting my 13 and 11 (almost 12) year olds into GREEN book because of the great diagramming in it. :001_smile: My 9 yr is jumping into Orange, and my 7 into Red. It's wonderful! However, I will be adding a bit more literature for them.
  6. Some new ones coming out for elementary age: http://novelguides.wordpress.com/
  7. My 7th grader: 8:30 am Bible (everyone) 9:00 am Math (combined with sis) 10:15 independent reading 11:00 Lang Arts (combined with sis) 12:00 Lunch Hour 1:30 History or Science (everyone) 2:30 more reading, or projects, or computer science FREE/CHORES/ETC 4:30 family literature read alouds
  8. My kids are: 13, 11 (almost 12 - 13 months younger than older sis), 9, 7, and 4. I combine all kids for: Bible, History, Science I combine the 2 oldest for: Math, Language Arts I am also, believe it or not, able to combine my 9 and 7 in most math. He is quite advanced, while she is behind in this subject. For now, it works! :001_smile:
  9. I'll be using it with my 4 year old this fall. He will be 4.7 to be exact, and we'll take our time through the first part of the book with initial phonics, utilizing the phonic cards, playing games, etc. ;) I think it is more of a K level then 1st for most children, as it assumes no prior phonics experiences; truly a *beginning* program.
  10. Sue, we just left R&S english in lieu of LLATL as well. My kids are 13, 11, 9, 7 and 4. I plan to use LLATL though all levels. LLATL green has some diagramming...I am thinking we'll also use the McGuffey's readers to do some more grammar/diagramming lessons outside of LLATL.
  11.
