  3. I was wondering if any of you had suggestions for my high school (soon to be junior) daughter. I am looking for something that would help her writing grow specifically in the area of word choice. Her form and grammar are good but I am looking for something that would help her draw upon more advanced language. Any suggestions? Thanks
  4. I borrowed Algebra 1 from a friend. We are about 3/4 of the way through it but I have to return it. I hate to buy another set to finish it. Could anyone tell me how much TT Algebra 2 reviews from Algebra 1? Should I just let my daughter start in Algebra 2? Or might she miss something important from Algebra 1 that is not covered in Algebra 2? Thanks !
  5. Thanks for all of the suggestions. I shall look into Oak Meadow.. I am already familiar with K-12. Since her children are just starting off (I think they shall be 1st grade next year) do you think SOTW is too much for that age?
  6. I have a friend who is considering homeschooling and wanted my advice on how to get started. She is not a christian and is not interested in things like MFW, TOG, HOD, SL.... which is all the stuff I have used and am familiar with. I tried researching stuff online but I am not really having much luck. Do you guys know of anything out there that is not christian and yet still based on living books? Thanks Amy
  7. Hi, I am new to this particular board and I have not posted much in general. I was looking for a little seasoned advice as I find myself stepping into areas that I have not previously gone before. I have 5 children, the oldest 16 and youngest 2. I have homeschooled all the way through. I have always had struggles with one of my dear children in many areas and finally (she is 12) had her tested last week. The diagnosis was: auditory dyslexia, visual dyslexia, eye tracking issues as well as being a extreme right brain learner. The testing included curriculum design. I must say that I find all
  8. your private message inbox is full... I can't respond to your pm to me regarding 7/6. It is still available. You can email me...


  9. Is there anyway that this could be a tracking issue? My daughter is a struggling reader and for years I thought she was just being lazy and skimming the words because she didn't feel like taking the time to sound them out properly. Then I discovered that she has eye tracking issues. Her eyes physically don't move the way they are supposed to. I did not notice the problem until we got into longer words. We have done exercises to help improve her eye strength and she has dramatically improved.
  10. I posted a little while ago about trying to decide on what to do for grammar. I think I have decided to use Easy Grammar but trying to decide exactly what I need to order is confusing me. Is it really that expensive? I need to buy for 2 students. My 5th grader who is a struggling reader and has not had much in the way of formal grammar and punctuation, and my 10th grader who just needs an overall review. I looked on the EG website. Do I really need to buy the Teacher's edition, the student workbook and the test book? I would love advice from those of you who have used it on wh
  11. There is a woman in my homeschool group that taught math for many years. She is very big on doing Algebra 2 after Algebra1 and saving Geometry till after Algebra 2. She said that Geometry comes much easier when they have that extra year to develop mentally.
  12. My daughter is somewhere in 4a and it just doesn't seem to be sticking. I have come to the conclusion that it is because there is not enough review of things already learned. Things do not transfer into her long term memory very easily. As a result, things that Singapore math touched on briefly, she does not remember by the end of book review. I have learned the hard way that it is better to just stick to something (curriculum wise) than jump all over trying to find the perfect fit. I settled with Singapore( I grew up there, it makes me a little biased) but it doesn't seem to be working for h
  13. My daughter is 11. What do they copy in R&S? We already do a lot of copywork (I have a heavy Charlotte Mason flavor) but I am finally confident enough as a homeschooler to skip what does not work for us in a book, so if I had to skip stuff in R&S I could. I do not need a writing program as I have found a method that I really like. Still Rod and Staff? Does Easy Grammar teach things like capitalization?
