  9. Yeah! I love Wisconsin, but our long winters are tough. For a native Californian looking for seasons, I think it's too much. Spring doesn't exist here. 😀 Madison is nearly very liberal, but I'm assuming other parts of the state are more conservative (just based on the fact that the Rep governor who everyone hates in Madison got re-elected)
  10. Stay away from WI, Minn and Michigan. Winters are too long for a native Californian!
  11. 6 months out of the year I bike and build up to long distances. I'm now done with bike season and am doing workout videos/treadmill but need to work at making it a habit.
  12. I can very much relate to this post too. I've made some changes recently. I switched from R&S grammar which took a lot of time and energy. Now we are doing analytical grammar junior mechanics and then will do AG. The lessons are short, to the point, and we don't have to repeat the same work year after year. Just occasional review after they master the material. I agree to move around the schedule so that you don't feel like you are waiting for her all day. That's not good for either if you. I also do history, science and writing at the end of the day and those are the most mom-intensive. I tend to only allow a mid morning break if we were efficiently using our time that day. Dragging feet during math, vocab, etc means no time for a break. I look forward to reading this thread more closely!
  13. I'm using treasured conversations (we ended up passing through the first section because she already knew the grammar) for my 5th grader. It does outlining and writing from an outline, which should well-prepare her for WWS next year. My 6th grader (12yo) is doing well with WWS, but I'm glad I waited and didn't push it last year.
  14. I use knowledge quest MapTrek and those maps tie in great with a good number of the lessons FYI
  15. I would probably wait on WWS or do it half pace. See the sticky at the top .. Here it is http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/topic/509138-if-youre-using-wwe-or-wws/ 5th grade is typically young for WWS. IMO it is a stronger program teaching (with plenty of practice) a wide variety of academic styles of writing. We did not care for IEW. My dd is currently finishing WWE3 (after several writing rabbit trails through the year including IEW) and she is doing Treasured Conversations and will start WWS next year for 6th. TC is teaching outlining and writing from an outline so it helps build skill that will help with WWS next year.
