    Reduced. Now $165. Nancy Larson Science Level 3. Includes the TM, partial student materials, all posters, and all items in the supply kit. You would just need the student materials to make it complete. I'm asking $165 ppd standard rate shipping. Retails for $289. Paypal only. Cross posted.


  3. My favorite is Nancy Larson Science for the 1, 3, 5. It comes with EVERYTHING you need to do the experiments and it's the only science curriculum I've ever fully completed. I'm no real help for the 8th grader. Exploration Education Science is really good for that age though.
  4. I am looking for a hands on resource or lesson plans for teaching world geo to a group of 3rd to 5th graders at our co-op. I briefly thought of Galloping the Globe but I don't know if there are other options out there right off. We would have a total of 24 classes at about 50 minutes for each class. Any ideas?

  7. amyc78 if you don't mind your son working on the computer you could download Timez Attack. They have a free version and a paid version. It's a game like program where they practice their math facts. We have used the free version and it's perfectly sufficient.
  8. Can you explain to me how they teach adding with carrying and subtraction with borrowing? I want to switch to RS for this coming year and I'm just curious how they teach kids to do those things. Also fractions. Long time users do you feel the way they teach fractions is easier to understand than some other methods etc.? Thanks!
  9. Attached mama the I See Sam readers look like good options for my son. Did you buy them or get them free by emailing like it says to do? I'm going to have to find some appropriate reading for my older son who is still going through AAR. I'm also going to look at the High Noon readers and others listed here.
  10. Yes! We've had a hard year and we got in a serious rut and now I'm paying for it. But just last week I changed things up and it went very well. We are both night owls and well, that just doesn't work for us anymore. We've been running around all :willy_nilly: . No more though.
  11. Merry I know he could probably read level 2 words but I'm scared to jump him to 3. I feel like there are so many more skills learned than just learning to read the words with each level. We are doing a lesson a day and in reality right now we are doing 2 because he learns a phonogram then next lesson reads the story in the reader. He can handle doing 2 lessons that way. We continue to do all review of course. His reading is still a bit choppy but the readers help a great deal with that. I don't know why. I guess it's been because I let him read it to himself first and then I will read it after he does. He usually reads it again with more feeling. My brain can't come up with the right words to describe what I mean. I hope that makes sense. As much as I would like to get it done more quickly I can't seem to get peace about leaving AAR. It works AND my son has loved it. Why mess with something that ain't broke LOL.
  12. So I am a huge fan of AAR but this last year I've not been able to get as many lessons done with my son and he's "behind" a tad bit. We are just 4 short days from finishing AAR 1 and my son already reads way beyond that level. I was going to go ahead and buy AAR 2 but somehow I got onto LOE's website yesterday and I've got to say I'm completely intrigued with it for a few reasons. 1) I can complete LOE much quicker than I can finish the next 3 levels of AAR. My son has JUST turned 9 and has no learning disabilities. I just need to get a ful phonics program done with him and I want a primarily OG based program. 2) I've not found grammar that I'm fond of yet. LOE includes it along with vocabulary and composition. 3) Overall the cost would be much less to do LOE instead of AAR. More money up front but around $250 cheaper than doing all 4 levels of AAR and AAS. For those of you that have used AAR/AAS (we would start AAS as soon as we finish AAR 1) and LOE can you compare where the major differences are and what I would need to consider with a switch? Also please share how long your lessons take with LOE. I would be using a 16 week schedule as a frame work and of course taking longer on a lesson if needed. My son will technically be in 4th grade next year and it would be wonderful to be able to start him out at his right reading and spelling level hence the consideration to go to LOE vs. AAR. I was also going to use EIW with my son for writing but I'm wondering now if I would even need it with LOE's composition portions. Overall it seems that all my language arts would be covered for around a year in the price of LOE. Give me your thoughts and experiences please wonderful ladies (and a few gentlemen). Thank you!
  13. Our get it done stuff is AAR/AAS, Nancy Larson Science, and ACE Paces. I adore HOD but it gets done less than ACE. And yet I've got HOD Preparing sitting on my shelf for next year. We shall see how that goes.
