  1. 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. https://acoordinatedlife.com/8th-grade-homeschool-plan-for-h/ 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. ?
  3. 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.
  4. 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 siste
  5. 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 Mine is a little outdated, since I haven't been here in a while.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?
  6. 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?

  9. 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

  12. I just received the newest HM, and it has 38 lessons, which I plan to do over 7th and 8th grade. I want to work with her during the first part of the year on scheduling, with the hopes that by the end of 7th grade, she's able to take that on herself. I just don't know exactly how I want to tackle that. She did say that she wants to do the IEW writing with it, since we're doing it at home. She took SWI at our co-op, and by half way through the year, she no longer liked it. I think when we got to multiple sources it threw her off a bit. At home, I can work on that unit slower with her, to ma
  13. Thank you so much for explaining! So, in his working binder, do you just put an entire unit, and he works on it for the entire two-week period? Or do you break it into daily chunks for him?
  14. My oldest, let-me-do-it-on-my-own kid uses Math Mammoth, and I seriously wish it went all the way through high school, because it is SUCH a great fit. She reads it and does the assignments and asks for help when she needs it. She does not learn well from being lectured. She needs to read it and see it for herself. It does NOT work for her sister. It frustrates her. For her, MUS works well. If it continues to work well, she will use it through high school. She likes watching the videos and likes the simplicity of the worksheets. She doesn't always need the blocks, but I think knowing they'r
