    8th Grade Planning Thread 2018-19 Updated 8-17-18

    I ended up revising this a little bit. We're going to try Lift of Fred and I'm going to do a few of the MBtP history units with her. Here's a link to my blog post about it, if anyone is interested in reading it. I also forgot to add that she's doing Fallacy Detective and French at our co-op. Which reminds me... I need to get her French books ordered. LOL
  2. Thanks for posting this. I'm having a heck of a time figuring out literature. This gives me something else to look into. ?

    Please critique my 9th grade plan

    You are correct. No prior grammar is necessary for AG. It's written with the premise of being the only grammar your students will ever need, so you don't need to have repetition each and every year like so many other grammar programs do.

    8th Grade Planning Thread 2018-19 Updated 8-17-18

    I THINK it's going to look like this... Language arts: AG, which we're doing over the summer to get season one out of the way; MBtP literature units (not sure which ones yet); Vocabulary from Classical Roots; Writing Strands Math: This is always a difficult one for her. She kind of wants to go back to MUS for pre-algebra this year. We've really had a hard time finding a good fit for her. History: We're going to try TRISMS again, but I'm going to try to sneak it under the radar, if I can. LOL! I will probably throw in some lap books, since she likes to be crafty. Her older sister (10th grade) kind of wants to do some, too. Science: Elemental Science

    Changing my signature

    I went into my profile to try to change my signature, but couldn't find a spot for it. Mine is a little outdated, since I haven't been here in a while. Lol. Can anyone help me figure out how to change it?

    Help with Vocabulary From Classical Roots

    Thanks, guys! I think I'll try the method Momto5inIN suggested, since she suggested it in both places. ?
  7. I'm just beginning to use book A with my 7th/9th graders. My plan was to work on it throughout the summer, but I'm really having trouble figuring out exactly how to teach it. I feel like I'm fumbling through and not really helping them learn anything. Anyone have any suggestions on how they implement the program?
  8. I ran across this thread this morning while I was researching using Trello for my homeschool. I've currently used it for two things now: Beginning to plan high school and writing down lesson plans for TRISMS. I just posted a blog post about how I'm using it for TRISMS. Maybe it'll help someone come up with ideas for their homeschool. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I think I have finalized our plans for the most part. History/lit/writing: TRISMS Discovering the Ancient World Analytical Grammar & Writing Strands (I think I'm going to use this as one combined credit, but she'll also be doing IEW writing lessons in her history program. I'm still ironing out how to record that on her transcript.) MUS - I'm hoping to finish up pre-algebra prior to the start of the year, then do Algebra 1 for 9th grade. She's technically behind in math, but only due to laziness. I'm sure I can get her caught up prior to August, as she doesn't ever require the review and repetition of neurotypical students. That's where the laziness comes from, I think - procrastination. Monarch High School Health (1 semester) Monarch Civics (1 semester) Biology for the Rhetoric Stage (ES) Spanish: She's going to finish the second half of the Spanish book she's using in co-op this year to earn the other half of the credit. She's doing it on her own, though, because she really doesn't learn much in a classroom setting. We just need to track down the audio files, and then she'll continue supplementing with DuoLingo. She will have 7 credits at the end of her freshman year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Do your kids know analog clock time? Are you sure?

    To be fair, I'm 42 and have never heard, "Its ten of nine" before. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Why do you do Standardized Testing?

    I test every other year, just to see if there are any glaring gaps in their learning I should address. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ignore this thread!

    I was trying to kind of skim through and see if there was any coherence to it, and it's literally a thread about anything and everything! Possibly the best thing I've created beyond my children! [emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
