  6. http://homeschoolcreations.com/Workboxes.html Love this blog. Click on the Chore chart printables link in the article. I modeled my system off of hers! It is working really well with very little tweaking on my part = Success!
  7. I feel like I search the internet for hours and find nothing. Thank you for the links! I feel like I just won the lottery!!!!:lol:
  8. There are flashcards and cards to organize the filing system set up in the TM. Level 1 does include the lesson on double (ff, ss, and ll), but I would search the table of contents and verify that you would want to review ALL of level 1 or at least 2/3 or it. My ds knew 90% of the phonograms covered in level 1, but only 10% of the rules. Rule practice and not reading ability is why I choose AAS so we started with level 1. If you dc already knows about plurals, k and ck, c and k, how to count syllables, and when to double ff, ll, and ss...I might skip level 1. If not, or if spelling with sh,
  9. I can't answer as to the ages and stages yet, because my kiddos are both lower grammar, but if you have multiple levels of kids, I would suggest the print version. I will have kids at the same level for most stages and prefer the DE so I can print off only applicable pages. With multiple stages, you could be printing more than you would like. Just a thought!
  10. You could try reading a play with him. I have seen great books at the library that rewrite stories in play form. He can pick a character or two (adding different voices could be fun) and you could be the other characters. Make is a fun, silly time and it could ease any nerves or fear he has about reading performance. Short sentences and a solid storyline would also lend themsleves to great comprehension questions and/or copywork/memorization. Just an idea!
  11. I use AAS and ETC as my phonics, spelling, and reading prep. I like the variety of learning options and after 7 weeks am beginning to see how well the programs are working together. I have tweaked them a little to be in a similar order, but I am not fretting over it. My ds does not know cvc words so his reading is a little slower, but the phonics are great and he is growing. My only suggestion would be to get some good readers or continue to have your child reading everyday. The programs only work well as reading programs if a TON of reading is done as well. I worked heavily on the AAS a
  12. My ds has a similiar problem, so I completely understand. I think with him, some it is was performance anxiety. He felt too pressured whenever I said, "Time to read from your reading book!" He would fuss and could barely read the words he had just spelled on his spelling test! Frustrating. I found that if I found readers that were advanced for him, but the content was more for "fun", that he was excited about reading WITH me. I will read the hard words and he reads the rest. So far, it is working at keeping him interested and pressure free. Just an idea! Good luck. Jenn
  13. I have a 1st and K'er doing AAS. I start with new material for my 1st and then do the review material after with my K'er included and use that time as her practice time. This actually helps her as we are taking it very slow. It also builds confidence with my 1st because he gets to "help" his sister. I also allow them to work together on the board with tiles and words, but I have them work at their own level. 1st will be spelling and the segmenting "just", while K'er is pulling tiles from the dictation cards. They don't work together everyday because K'er is only 1-2 days of AAS. So far,
  14. I use TOG with my 6 and 4 year old. It is our first year hsing and I use it as our history and arts activity guide. We use the books list for literature and supplements. I love it and enjoy having a loose guide for the early years. It is NOT rigorous at this level and just a great introduction. I am planning on following the cycle through once, then taking a four year break for some other really great classical curriculum and then finishing off the last cycle with TOG again. If you have other little ones coming along and plan to use it further down the road, I suggest the DE version. We
  15. For me it depends on the ages. I have LG/UG students and would prefer the DE, for updating reasons and because I flip through a ton of pages that aren't really necessary at this stage. When they get to R, the print version will more useful, but I also really like the idea of my students having the DE version to access. My advice, get both for one year or one unit. If you really plan to use TOG all the way through, this will give you the best feel for both and you can always sell the print copy if it isn't "you". Happy TOGing! Jenn:001_smile:
