  1. Thanks for posting that. It was actually my post from yesterday, but it wasn't showing up in my profile. Ha! I thought maybe I didn't confirm the post. Oops!
  2. I'm not a fan of singing songs when you need to recall information. But I do understand it is a good way to memorize things. Do you find benefit in the Veritas history songs or are they plain ole annoying? We do enjoy Kathy Troxel's Geography Songs! Her tunes are catchy and not annoying!
  3. I know that kids learn a lot through song. But I find songs that I learned to be annoying and I hate recalling information through song. For instance a Bible verse to music is from Jeremiah, "The heart is deceitful above ALL THINGS!!! Who can knO W IIIIT!!!" Do you enjoy the Veritas songs? Are they helpful?
  4. I think we'll start over this coming year and use the memory cards more. Then use MOH when they get older.
  5. We are using The Mystery of History for the backbone of our history. I was planning on making our own notecards (my daughter is only 6 years old) as well as a timeline. Of course, I got burnt out on that really fast. I am leaning toward getting the Veritas History and Bible Cards to use in memorization and for etching a timeline in her head. Possibly hang the cards on the wall in order??? Thoughts on this?? If I purchase the history AND the Bible cards will it coincide with MOH pretty well? BTW: We are halfway through Volume I. She is doing mostly 2nd grade curriculum. But next year, her b
  6. I just withdrew my DD from a Classical School. Right now we are doing First Language Lessons, Singapore Math, Phonics Pathways (for spelling words) and a beginning geography workbook along with geography songs. She will turn 6 in March. Is she ready for Latin? They learned some vocabulary words at school and recited some other grammar-type stuff. I know nothing about Latin. I want her to learn it in some capacity mainly to help with her English spelling. She is a very bright girl and loves to learn, but I don't want her to burn out. I don't mind adding another subject as it only takes an hour
  7. Do I need the textbook and the H. Guide or would the HG and the workbook be enough?
  8. We are about to begin Singapore Math 1B. My daughter is doing well on just the supplemental worksheets for 1A I found locally based on Singapore Math. I am getting ready to purchase what we need for 1B. I plan on getting the textbook and worksheets. Do I need the Home Educator's Guide as well?
  9. Wow, there seems to be a fairly large gap between not believing in PH (I don't) and not liking America.(I do:)) I love America. It's the mindset of a lot of the people that I don't like. But this is not the place for that discussion. I just thought I would get her opinion on that since it seemed to be a little along those lines.
  10. What does your little favicon mean? Am I a devil for not teaching my kids the pledge?
  11. There are tons of memory work songs you can download from iTunes or purchase the CDs. I let my 4 year old listen to the Geography Songs, Addition facts, books of the Bible, etc. I don't even think she realizes she's learning. But will come up to me and say, "What's 3 plus 3?" I'll say, "You tell me." She'll reply, "Six!"
  12. Are you Christian? Are you having your kids learn the Pledge of Allegiance? I am thinking I won't. I really don't want them growing up thinking America is so great. I mean, yeah, it is great in a lot of ways, but as far as it being modern-day Israel and what not...God's new chosen people.... bla bla bla. I don't want our kids having that mind-set.
  13. BOB Books are great too. They have a number of sets and they progress. The first book of the first set uses Mat, Sam and sat.
