  5. Here is what I did with mine many yrs. ago at that age from what I can remember: The Librarian Who Measured the Earth Wise Guy Life Philosophy of Socrates Archimedes and the Door of Science The Storybook of Science - Fabre (We have liked most of his books!) Quark Chronicles look good but she doesn't have Geology and Astronomy out yet, but maybe by the fall? :)
  6. Thanks for all of your posts! Hoping this will be a great resource for those who want to go for the dual enrollment route!
  7. Have you tried this yet? We had thought of it but decided on Bluefield since the cost was considerably lower. Let me know how it goes!
  8. Great to know...thanks! I do know credits at Bluefield College (where we have taken some) are good for all state and private schools in VA where I have checked. William & Mary, University of Mary Washington, Liberty U., UVA.
  9. Others I know of that have not been mentioned: Scholars Online - www.scholarsonline.org Cornerstone Tutorials - www.cornerstonetutorials.com Rolling Acres School - rollingacresschool.com Liberty Tutorials (math) www.libertytutorials.com Potters School - www.pottersschool.org
  10. Unfortunately for some of us where public CCs are offered the courses are $400 a class which is close to some of the other online offerings. I know for a FACT that Bluefield College offers courses for only $135 a class not course! I can't find it cheaper anywhere else unless it is free! :) We have taken 2 courses at Bluefield and like it well but need a few courses that I haven't seen them offer like Astronomy so looking at other providers.
  11. Too kind.. :blush: Wouldn't it be great though to have a good list as a resource when we are trying to plan. Thanks for the suggestions!
  12. Yes, thanks for clarifying for me! :) I didn't realize Scholars Online had any AP. Thanks for listing the others, had not heard of some of them.
  13. While I'm on it....can we list all dual enrollment online providers, (not looking at local community colleges.) If you have used or liked star in your list! Thanks! Bluefield College Liberty U.- Edge Cedarville U. Belhaven- High Scholars Taylor U. Bryan College
  14. Can we compile a list of all accredited AP online providers. Searched the archives and couldn't find any....I'll start from what I know. Feel free to list favorites or star them in your list. :) PA Homeschoolers Veritas Press Wilson Hill Academy Potters School North Star Academy Keystone philfour.com Derekowens.com (Calculus)
  15. :( My youngest will be K in the fall, still deciding what to use. But this is what I have planned as of now. Phonics- Ordinary Parent's Guide to Reading & various readers (He taught himself to read at 3yrs. so I want to go through this quickly to make sure he has all those special sounds down. (Might switch to RLTL to focus more on spelling since he seems to know most phonics) :) He also loves Reading Eggs so we will probably continue thatMany books varying from Literature, History, Science- using various lists from AO, MP, and including a Nature Journal Geography/Community Helpers - really want to make this fun he loves learning of other places so thinking of coming up with a geography theme starting with community helpers in our area and then branching out throughout the world. Focusing on good literature and field trips when we can :-) Writing- Continue working on correct letter formation, writing letters, and keeping a journal Math- Saxon 1, calendar and games! (looking into online games - Math Seeds) Bible/Character- Golden Living Bible, Children's Story of Virtues, or Faith books, AWANA Spanish- Lyric Language, Hymns (Cedarmont in Spanish), Muzzy videos, maybe a coop class if we can get in Fine Arts- tag along with brother's for our morning time: (Poet study, Composer, Artist, etc.) Outside activities: Possibly an art and Spanish class once a week at the coop (if we can get in) and piano instruction one day a week. Plan on keeping actual learning time about 45min. -1 hr a day not counting our read aloud times a day. He LOVES to be outside so we will continue to stay outside 3hrs. a day when we can it keeps us all sane here! :tongue_smilie:
  16. Would love to know how they compare and what you like about Cornerstone if have used. Thanks!!

  18. I believe I have the 3rd edition and it has been a great resource for me! I always reread it every summer in preparation for planning another school year! I love it all, but some suggestions I would think would be beneficial are: With using the OPGTR - Phonics readers more ideas besides the Bob books like: Primary Phonics (favorite here). A good living book list for Pre-K and K (notice I am starting over again and this would be awesome! :) I know others have expressed special needs but would love to hear of resources for gifted learners as well and how to meet their needs Dual enrollment/outsourcing Discussing nature studies- & resources Bible resources ideas of study/book list More living books for Science studies and maybe include some for the HS years too to go along with the core book to make it stick. :) More classical book lists (can't have too many :) Maybe at the end of the book have a long list sorted by subject and grade that would be all together and easier to flip to. List of readers blogs that could be used as a resource for ideas! Some more scheduling daily/weekly ideas? Online outsourcing list of providers Just throwing out some ideas. :) Some resources we have used that have been favorites here that you haven't mentioned in your book are: Classical Academic Press (Latin and Logic curricula), IEW (other products besides their writing that you used in your book, Grammar), Yesterday's Classics (great books for the K-8 years!) I have many books and curriculum I have used for the years it isn't fancy but it helped me keep track of what I have used for my boys that might could be of use for you when looking at curricula and book lists. http://homeschoolingmy3boys.blogspot.com/ You really did change how I saw schooling and I feel so blessed to have been able to discover your book and to hear many of your seminars over the years. Many blessings to you! Good luck in your next edition, can't wait to get mine! :)
