  9. Mr. Q's Life Science is free to download and use. Our DS likes it. There are few threads about Mr. Q's science. http://eequalsmcq.com/classicsciinfo.htm http://eequalsmcq.com/testimonials.htm
  10. The following are few recommended ones from various threads: http://www.amazon.com/My-First-Lab-Duo-Scope-Microscope/dp/B000NOU54O/ref=wl_it_dp_o_npd?ie=UTF8&coliid=I2SUAHCGMSE6UO&colid=3DSN1RFYX0TLV We bought the following: http://www.hometrainingtools.com/home-microscope/p/MI-4100STD/ Homeschool Buyers Co-op also has a sale on Microscopes.
  11. Text Book for Standards Edition is very different and intensive compared to U.S Edition. TB has methods to teach new concepts, exercises for each topic (like workbook) and practice pages for each topic. We teach our son the concepts from the HIG and then we move to corresponding pages in the text book. If text book pages requires writing then our son uses a note book. Then he moves into WB pages and completes them. At the end of each week, he takes a test from the test book. Hope this helps.
  12. Very good question. I am also trying to figure this out for my 2nd grader son who is using Singapore 2A Standards edition.
  13. I would be interested in getting the 2nd Grader CSV files. Please PM me. I started working on the Singapore Math Standard 2A and was wondering about the same thing.
  14. :lurk5:. Thanks so much for all the suggestions.
  15. We have used both RS and SM. RS is a scripted program with less workbook based practices. RS uses lots of manipulatives to teach the Math using scripts written for the Parents. I prefer/recommend RightStart A and/or B for younger kids with no previous math exposures. It would provide them strong fundamentals. For our son, it used to take 45 minutes to teach a lesson. Later we moved to Singapore for more abstract & workbook based approach. Edit: RS does not require the parent to have strong math knowledge. Singapore w/o HIG would require some math knowledge to teach.
  16. Please read these blogs from one of the GWG user. http://satorismiles.com/category/1-subjects/language-arts/grammar-language-arts/
  17. Here is our plan for our second grader DS: MATH - Singapore 2A/2B, IP, CWP, MEP, RightStart C (Selected Chapters), May be MM 2. Reading - OPGTR (Continue), ETC 7-8 and lots of library books Writing - WWE 1 (Not done yet) Grammar - FLL 1/2 (Not done with 1 yet), GWG (Going to try this) Spelling - AAS Level 3. Vocabulary - Wordy Wise 1 and 2 (Starting this year) Critical Thinking - Building Thinking Skills, Mind Benders, Mathematical Reasoning, Language Smarts and others. Geography - Evan-Moor Geography a Day 2nd grade History - SOTW 1 (We just started it and will continue). Science
  18. AFAIK It does not work in Windows 7. But I was able to run from an external CD-ROM/DVD Player connected to Windows 7 Netbook.
  19. When I buy used books from the For Sale forums, I get "like new" workbooks most of the time. I am wondering what do you guys use to make copies of workbooks w/o changing the state of the book. TIA.
  20. Wow, look like most of you are using MM. We are going to try that this year. My son goes to public school and will be after schooling: MATH - Singapore 2A/2B, IP, CWP, MEP, RightStart C (Selected Chapters), May be MM 2.

  21. After schooling First Grader son did not like/want to do the following: RSB - Most of the lessons were too simple for him. He loves Singapore Math and MEP. MEP was initially tough, but we did not give up on it. Now a days, we do selected problems in MEP. WWE - We could only finish about 9 weeks. It brings tears in his eyes most of the time. FLL 1 - Too much repetition for my son. We are slowly picking up the speed on this. Artistic Pursuit - Did not have time to work on it. SOTW - Hard to start. We are slowly picking up the speed on this. RSO Life - We only did few lessons
