    I'm looking for a Sonlight schedule and books for the High School Chemistry course that uses the 2nd edition of Apologia Chemistry. I need the guide and the books. Please let me know if you have the guide and/or any of the books available! Thank you!


  4. Hello! I am looking for suggestions for reading material for a 9th grader who is studying Year 4, Modern Times. I am looking at the book lists in TWTM and would like to choose eight of these titles for him to cover over the remainder of this school-year (9th) and the summer months. It feels quite awkward for him to be covering Year 4 at the beginning of High School and I'm not sure which titles are most appropriate for a younger High Schooler. He has covered a lot of modern history this year. He has also read a lot of literature but only a few titles that I would consider to be a "great b

    Sonlight Core 100 Instructor's Guide in very good condition. 2005 edition, complete with all of the book notes. Binder is not included. There are a few small pencil marks on the first few days of the first week of the schedule but all other pages have no markings. The very last page has a small tear due to normal binder wear, but otherwise there are no tears. I will be glad to send the book list and a photograph to anyone who is interested in this older but perfectly usable guide. $45.00 includes media mail shipping. Paypal preferred but will also take a personal check or money order. Thanks!


  6. My 9th grader is using it. He is earning a full Intro.. to Logic credit this year. He has completed The Fallacy Detective and The Thinking Toolbox, both by the Bluedorns. Now he's working through The Art of Argument book and listening to the DVD that goes with it. We watch the DVD together and discuss each fallacy. He works through the book independently. He does all of the writing. Yes, it is mostly short answer or short paragraphs, but in the next month or so he will finish that and work through the Argument Builder book. That book will have him applying what he has learned and at th
  7. My 9th grader has been studying Biblical Greek since 4th grade. He uses Hey Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek. I don't think it's very popular here on TWTM boards but he loves it and has made great progress with it. He likes that it is easy for him to use without waiting on me to help him as it is written to the student. It includes a lot of repetition in the early books and delays grammar until book 4. I think he will be well prepared for his college Greek classes. He will be attending a Christian college, so the Biblical Greek was an appropriate choice for him and he was especially intereste
  8. My sixth grader is using that Sonlight core now. We are only a month into it. I had planned to have my 9th grader sit in on it, beef up the reading, and have him do ALL of the Eastern Hemisphere Explorer pages. We have the old pages and they are quite detailed. But, I just wasn't sure if even all that was enough for a half credit. He is also studying Modern World History now and there are quite a few topics that he is studying or will be studying that would fit in to the focus of that Sonlight Core (like all the isms... communism, socialism, etc.) but I'm still not sure if it is "enough".
  9. Thanks! I think we may get it. We haven't used many textbooks over the years. I think it may be good to use one for this subject though. I need something that is easy to use. Have you ever used it? I am wondering if the units can be arranged in the order that we want to cover them in, rather than as laid out in the book.
  10. I am looking for a High School level World Geography curriculum that my 9th grader can use to earn a half credit. Looking for something he can complete in four or five months. I would especially like it if the course focused on the Eastern Hemisphere and included cultural information while remaining strong in Geography. I am considering Oak Meadow even though it's not a half credit course. Any suggestions?
  11. Hello! I haven't checked in on the chat board in quite awhile, but wanted to share this awesome, amazing news with you all! Some of you may know that last Christmas we hosted a child through an orphan hosting program. We had never participated in an orphan hosting program before and didn't really intend to adopt. But, it was a wonderful experience. We hosted her again this summer and will be hosting her the third time this Christmas. She is from Ukraine and has lived in the orphanage for five years. We have never adopted before and it has all been quite scary, but we have managed to get
  12. I am! My 9th grader will start WWS 2 in about two months. He still has a little work to do in WWS 1 first. We floundered around for a long time as we tried to find a writing curriculum that made sense to him. We "made do" but nothing clicked with him like WWS. I am going to cover Essay Writing and the Research Paper with other materials. But, whatever else we do over the next few years, he will continue with WWS. He is doing a lot of writing across the curriculum now and I am SO VERY thankful for the progress he has made with WWS. I am of the "whatever works, do that" mentality at this
  13. Blah. What a distressing thread! I got four hours of sleep last night. Woke up extra early after literally dreaming of a modern world history course for my upcoming 9th grader. I have looked at everything and nothing feels right. The books are too much. He is a strong reader. He loves history. However, I am not comfortable with some of the topics covered in these years. Not ready to read books with sexual innuendos and references to rape, prostitution, adultery. Yuck. My husband has forbidden us to read Hemingway in 9th grade. I think we are prudish here. I don't know. Oh, never m
  14. Just wanted to pop in and thank you guys for your input!! Our NEW copy of FUFI arrived this week-end!! :hurray: I don't buy brand new resources very often, so that alone was a treat! Wow, I love it! It arrived on Saturday and my 11 year old is ready to start this Monday. I am a little nervous because we have never used a unit study before. I think I will be o.k. as long as I can get in the habit of looking ahead to make sure we have the supplies and other books we need for the lessons. I am really excited! I think this will be a big chunk of my 6th graders day. I plan to allow my 9th

  19. I don't know if the quote is correct. I read a statement she posted that said that a student who completes three levels of WWS would be as well prepared for writing in college as 90% of the students. I can't give you a link for that statement, but I do believe that is what she meant by the 90%.

  21. Wow, thanks so much to each of you who took the time to respond. Each response has helped me to look at this situation with different eyes. I really did not realize that it wouldn't be a problem if he started 9th grade in October or November. I guess my main question really was what impact it would have on his future college admission if we moved to a January to January school year rather than an August to August. I don't know if that matters or not, as far as applying for and being accepted into college. We have always schooled pretty much year round but have only had to turn in our days
  22. Thank you so much for your input Nscribe! He will continue with the math. I mean, he will probably continue with everything! Maybe it's not as important where he is at when he begins 9th as where he finishes. I think my idea to delay HS is more of a psychological thing for me than a practicality for him. I want to have time this summer for him to read books that are not scheduled in his curriculum. For example, he just started The Hobbit and wants to read all of that series. I told him he could cut back on his reading on his Sonlight core and he said that was what he loves most about sc
  23. Hi! I have shared in other threads about the situation that we are in as my oldest son prepares to enter HS next year. Long story short... we lost some time this year as our family dealt with the very sad reality of two critically ill family members and their eventual deaths this spring after much suffering. My son is smart and usually a hard worker, but there were many days when he couldn't complete particular things because he was either dealing with his own emotions, giving me the space to process my emotions, or we were visiting our family or care-taking. I do not want him to head int
  24. Thank you, Moon! Yes, he would definately be reading a lot of other books! I am just wondering how to include him in FUFI, if at all. He could just be a tag along, but I know the dynamics of our home and if his brother is doing something that is very interesting he will want to be included. The problem that I run into with them is that they end up wanting to do one another's work in addition to their own, so their days are too long and we don't get as far along as I have planned. At almost exactly three years apart in age, I find they are interested in one another's work but still have ne
  25. And, if I could use FUFI with my 9 th grader... would it be enough to merit earning a portion of his total English credit? He will be using Analytical Grammar, Vocabulary from Classical Roots, and Writing With Skill 2 (as soon as WWS 2 is released). He will also read a lot of literature with his history (not 100% settled on that choice yet).
