  1. Does anyone know of a timeline that spans creation to modern history that is already filled in for the wall? I’m ok if it takes up some space. I would just like a nice visual so as we read we can find whoever we might be reading about and see what was going on at that time. Any products like that out there? Thanks!
  2. :bigear: I can't wait to hear the replies to your question. I will have a 4th, 3rd, 1st, 4k, and 3 yr old this coming year. When I just looked at time to teach math alone my head started spinning! Then I realized all the other subjects I wanted to cover...I need about three of me...well four would be nice then one can cook and clean

  6. :bigear: Also, have been looking at biblioplan and would love to hear more experiences. ByGrace3 How were the crafts? It seems like when I look at the samples they are a bit involved not necessarily with things I would have around. Maybe that is just the impression that I got.
  7. I'm looking at using Considering God's Creation with Galloping the Globe this coming year. I will be using it with a 3rd, 2nd, and kindergartner (and 3 1/2 yr old &1 1/2 yr old). I like that the student sheets are a pdf download so I will be able to print numerous copies for each of the kids. Simply Charlotte Mason - 106 Days of Creation
  8. Five in a Row adding phonics and math on their levels. It doesn't have all the subjects you listed but we really liked using Adventures in American History from Elemental History.
  9. Oooooh, this might work! Lots of flexibility, some direction, the printouts that I would like to have for multiple kids without it costing crazy amounts, recipes, and projects. Thank you! For $18.95 what an awesome resource.
  10. I will look into this, thanks! Do you happen to have a link? Or is it not out yet?? (never mind found where they were talking about it) The grades are 3rd, 2nd, and K. I have All Through the Ages to use as a resource just trying to see if I can use someone else's plan to keep me accountable. :rolleyes: I was considering following the HOD Preparing guide but there is a lot I don't want to do and not sure it is worth the $ if I am only using it for some readings and activities.
  11. This is an old thread but... Have any other curriculums come out that cover an overview of world history for the elementary crowd? :bigear:
  12. I'm glad you were able to make a decision. Just some random thought to add. I just wanted to encourage you that if you find yourself questioning that decision - not that I do that at all ;) - go through and read the Beyond activities and how much you are reading a day. I personally want to read more. You can add in from the MFW book basket or any books because you have more of a theme for the week in MFW. Every time I read back through the HOD manual I realize I can not see us doing the activities but MFW Adventure's activities seem more like a project to me which is what I am looking for. I also would rather read The Story of the Pilgrims through the month of November instead of the 13 weeks it is scheduled. ;) I too am one drawn to HOD on paper but do not like it in reality for our family. I haven't really figured out our plan... hopefully as time goes on everything will fall into place. Enjoy the journey!!
  13. I have a couple that I made for my kids. You can check them out here: http://www.momentswithapril.com/2012/01/abc-handwriting-book.html This one she is probably past. http://www.momentswithapril.com/2012/01/heart-of-dakota-little-hearts-for-his.html These are KJV bible verses that are broken into parts over the week so she wouldn't be writing too much in one day. http://www.momentswithapril.com/2012/02/hod-beyond-little-hearts-for-his-glory.html There are three files with more KJV bible verses with different levels of difficulty. Tracing the letters, copywork with three lines, and copywork with a single line to write on. I'm still undecided what I am doing next year for my 1st/2nd graders but will share files that I make on my blog. HTH!
  14. Thank you for the suggestions... anyone who has already BTDT?
  15. We are not ready to start a history cycle yet as we want to wait to touch on difficult topics with our kids. I would like to do more than just American History though. (We went through Elemental History - Adventures in America this year and really liked it.) I like the idea of an overview. I know Sonlight has an overview for this age but I don't like all of their book choices. HOD has an overview but it is more for 3rd/4th+ grades. I was thinking of doing an overview using picture books. I could add in a history kit, lapbooks, or other projects. Has anyone done this already? Have a book list? Even if you haven't done this what are some of your favorite picture books for early elementary throughout time? Some things I want to stay away from - mythology, gods, nudity, pretty much any topic that would be scary - my kids are pretty sensitive. I know they would love to learn about pyramids, castles, etc. (and so would I) :D. I do have All Through the Ages to find books along with the companies booklists that are out there but would love personal recommendations. Also, any books to stay away from. Thanks!
  16. Thank you this is very helpful. Everyone that we have talked to does seem very nice down there! :D
  17. I posted this in the general board but thought I would post it here as well... For those who live in Tennessee (specifically the Crossville area) I had a few questions. Our family may be relocating from WI to TN if my husband decides to take a job in Crossville, TN. He is an Automotive Technician and there is a job available there. Ok, I don't know that you all can answer this but if your husband is also an Automotive Technician in TN how are you all doing? Here in WI he is paid hourly and the job would change to flat rate pay (I may have just lost you, sorry) and we are trying to find out if there is enough business/hours that are calculated to support our family. How is the housing market? We live in a high cost area for housing and property taxes right now. Ex. our house is 1400 sq feet with 1.8 acres for 170,000 and taxes are 3400. How is homeschooling in the TN area? I have briefly looked at the HSLDA website but wondered about families who are living there and how they find the laws - easy? difficult? a little difficult? How about other cost of living expenses? I don't want to get too personal but how much can a family of 7 expect to live on? We are hoping to increase our income while decreasing our expenses - wouldn't we all like to do that right! ;) We know with having 4 boys our food budget will be going up yearly besides other expenses going up just with cost of living expenses. Any info you would like to share good and bad would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!!
