  1. We also do The Best Christmas Pagent Ever every year. This year I’m reading The Vanderbeekers book. They liked The Three Wise Cats last year.
  2. Dd1: turned 7 in October of first grade Dd2: six Dd3: turned 6 in September of first grade
  3. Anyone know of a good picture book with a character(female) named Elliot? Elle would work as well. Thanks for any ideas!
  4. Song School Latin 1 and 2 we’re both independent for my youngest at 8. She did need help getting the DVDs to the correct chapter. I put the cd’s on my computer and she listened to them easily. My 11 and 10 year old did LforC A this year independently. I’m learning it as well but I didn’t do it with them. I did correct their work and have them fix missed translations.
  5. For us math work isn’t done until it is checked and corrected. So I check it as soon as they’re finished. I sit at the table during math and often check the answers while they are working.
  6. So she can read the book Frog & Toad, but when doing Phonics Pathways she struggles to read the word f-r-o-g and sounds it out oddly? Is that what is going on?
  7. It's worth it for me to join for part of the year. I joined in the fall. I will Get up to date on all the content and deactivate after the Tomie dePaola interview. I cried during his interview last year. I love him! It is quite a large expense for us so I can't justify keeping it the whole year. But I do enjoy it while I have it.
  8. Growing up I went on one vacation ever year. We would spend two weeks about 5 hours away at the same beach resort every summer till I turned 16. My husband went on one vacation his entire childhood. It was to the same resort.
  9. Does any one know of an Illustrated book of literary devices? Or a book that has an explanation of literary devices in picture book format. I can find books for teaching literary devices using picture books but I'd like one with examples in the text and for it to be visually appealing. Not black and white text. Thanks!
  10. I think that it is a posative for the younger kids to amuse themselves for an hour or two everyday.
  11. Is there a reason you think SSL2 would not happen but LFC would? They are set up in a very similar way so you may have the same problems. Each has A cd component, DVD lesson, reader, and a workbook. They are both stand alone but maybe not child completely independent. My girls can mostly get the work part done by themselves but they need help playing the right videos, chants, and setting a schedule for the workbook/reader.
  12. Reading: Leap frog letter factory Followed by OPGTR when letter sounds are remembered. Math: 100s board to practice counting Count, add, and subtract small toys or beans as child is able. I also teach my pre-k to write their full name.
  13. Some of my kids started Beast at 7 but had already completed MM3. I found it easier if they were already fairly fluent in multiplication.
