  1. I never used formal spelling with 4 of my 5 kids. If they spell well in their writing, a program is unnecessary, IMO.
  2. At that age my small ones loved Jim Weiss CDs: especially Fairytale Favorites, Giants, Old Testament stories, and Famously Funny.
  3. Certainly not "no one." I teach philosophy and about 50% of the homeschoolers I know IRL teach it in some form.
  4. I will finish the whole series for the fifth time this year. The 2nd and 3rd times through were worst. Fourth and fifth were easier. In my opinion it is totally worth it.
  5. DS#1: homeschooled K-12 (dual enrolled for 11th and 12th.) DD#2: homeschooled K-10th, charter school 11th and 12th. DD#3: homeschooled K-8th, charter school 9th-11th (current) DS#4: homeschooled K-8th (current) DS#5: homeschooled K-4th (current)

They each scored perfectly on the English portion of the SAT. I say that simply to po
  7. I personally love Kodaly for ear training/sight singing.
  8. Well, I had the exact same set up a number of years ago. Boy 16 mo. older than girl. Kept them together for grammar, history, science, Latin, etc. Separate for phonics and math. Worked out great! They are now a freshman and sophomore in college. The question is the maturity of the younger. My daughter was mature - so it worked out well.
