  15. I have been working on a PDF for this. I am just having a difficult time getting some mom's to contribute some of their own copywork, but that is the best way with a variety of writing styles too. :) Keep writing it and reading it.
  16. BTW they are on Currclick too.http://www.currclick.com/browse.php?keywords=critical+thinking+company&x=0&y=0&author=&artist=&pfrom=&pto=&sdate_from=&sdate_to=&stime_from=&stime_to=
  17. Just begin. It does not matter. We are 2nd grade and most of the phonics is learned through repetition anyway. Reading is what cements this as well as working with a concept in the workbook. I am also not completely finished with More Days Go By. And ... I use Treasures too for language arts along with Write Away. Just start anywhere. It doesn't matter. It all comes back around again. The idea is to just keep going forward. There are quite a few site words to learn. Keep making cards and quizzing. Dd still gets where and were and there and their all misplaced. Yet, she can figure out delighted! Go figure. If you find something is not even clicking at all, then grab the books/workbooks from previous levels and focus a day or so on the content and move forward again. Evaluate as you go. At this moment, I am having to review silent e again, LOL. It just disappeared in 2 weeks with working on triple-lettered blends. Little brains.
  18. I have actually held Holt, and I like it. I did look at the high school text. I would use the high school text and do double for single. That is ... you do the high school credit and provide an eighth grade, but the first year of high school, you document and create the credit for a geography elective. Sounds odd, but a lot of us do this with the eighth grade so that it does in sense count twice for them. Depends on what your educational goals are too. Just a note ... the 7/8 and HS texts are typically the same reading level anyway for common textbooks.
  19. Practice. Remedia Publications, Reading Comprehension, Outlining, and Summary workbooks. Several levels, but start with the first. I have used the sets three times. :) They do a great job.
  20. I am not a purist. I subscribe to many of the foundations and implement many of the practices. You would see that we bounce about and use traditional textbooks for our spines and not literature or history encyclopedias anymore. We do a lot, but I blend it across several methodologies. Some practices just work better. As we move towards to HS, I do box it heavily. Mine want to move on to dual enrollment, and you can finish a box quick. :) Just do what you want and what you feel your kids need. This is the reason that you chose HS - not the classical methodology. Pick and use what fits your children. Treat and teach them individually and they will prosper academically.
  21. Cuisinart ... hope I spelled that right. Like this but older LOL http://www.wholelattelove.com/Cuisinart/cus_supreme_grind.cfm?CMP=FROG&utm_source=google&utm_term=Product_Target&utm_campaign=New+Shopping&utm_medium=cpc&utm_content=Ouq1oQvP|pcrid|56168697084|pkw||pmt||pdv|c|&gclid=Cj0KEQjwyrqgBRDepamt-LWA2oABEiQAV7nwwORwiWIRGRwJz3P7VpeySPqPSSgnwgva5lYkSrnFg9IaAmpd8P8HAQ
  22. With each daughter it did feel like they were more ready and progressed faster. Yes, I have home-schooled for years. I do let them visit PS for the first few grades, but they come home because usually another is already at home. I have let them choose up until high school. That is a non-negotiable point here. I am not the happiest with middle school, but I will allow it if they promise to read, LOL. One has spent time in a "mother's morning out" program of sorts. A few mornings a week she spent time playing and learning the basics. I believe that made her bouncy though. She is not a patient learner, but she is a quick learner. Seat work is minimal even for the second grade. So, I do recognize that each child moves forward better than the last, but I think that is exposure and environment changes. I think we tend to identify or to accept an academic success differently as well. More things are learning experiences because we home-school. More academic content is applied to their lives.
  23. The Mortal Instruments and Tom Sawyer Selected chapters of Genesis.
  24. We call it Life Skills and incorporate a bunch of things too. We do sewing, cooking, crafts, planting (indoor and out), career exploration, career testing, home, or basic consumer, mathematics (balancing the checkbook, evaluating the savings on a purchase, comparing food costs, etc.), making soap, cultural exposures (museums, nature walks, etc.), repairing items, upkeep on the home .... it becomes a lot of little things about managing their lives and growing towards independence. When they hit high school, we may need to rethink the "label" or incorporate these things into other subject content areas, but we have always had a "Life Skills" time every week - sometimes all day. It is more of my way of incorporating the unschooling moments and being able to label them in way that I need to label them so that I don't feel like we are doing nothing in a day.
