    I have both books, 5A (2010 ed.) and 5B (2011 ed.) for sale. We are going on our 3rd year of this curriculum and love it. The books are in good used condition ( a few pages in B are wrinkled from a small water spill, but there's no writing). $20ppd for both. Non smoking home.


  6. My 6th grade son has finished LFC A&B. I think that it is an excellent program, but that LFC B was much more difficult than A because of all of the translating and parsing. He liked Dr. Perrin and that's what kept him going when it got hard--plus the fun videos. We have SS Greek, and my younger son has used it to teach himself the Greek alphabet because he's a GT kid and is like that :-) But, I would not want to teach it to him! It isn't anything like English, so part of why you may not have liked the looks of SS Greek is because it's Greek! I just bought SS Latin 2 for my younger so
  7. I appreciate all of the input and am now going to rethink this whole thing. I want my son to love to read, so I think moving towards the classics is a better way to do that. We are studying American History this year because it ties to what we'll be doing in CC and then will pick up on the history cycle next year. So I will have him read about Ben Franklin and some modern scientists because he already enjoys that type of reading. Now I feel I can move away from history reading and towards classics! I don't know why this didn't occur to me sooner.
  8. I am just a little confused as to what to use for our reading time now that I've revisited my copy of TWTM. Should we be using books that tie to history or using classic literature? I realize that some books cover both categories, but what should I be using overarchingly? I am used to TOG that almost always uses history for the literature and I know Sonlight is the same, but then when I look at VP or MP and TWTM, it is based more on classics. I am not using TOG this year and have to schedule reading for my 3rd grade reader (who reads above grade level, but isn't convinced he likes to rea
  9. Yes, we will use the Classic Starts for the literature! We also like the D'Aulaire books and the "you wouldn't want to..." books!
  10. Most of the books can be read in a week. A few will take 2. I will assign a certain number of chapters per day to be finished in a week. I just looked at the ADV reading list, Sonlight's reading list, and TOG's reading list for that part of history and mushed it all together according to what we are talking about that week. Some things won't correspond week by week, but fit historically.
  11. These are the books I am planning on having my son read to himself this fall. We also have others scheduled for reading aloud. I would love input from those either familiar with the books or curriculum. My son is 8 and reads at about the beginning of 5th grade reading level, but does not yet love to read--so I've stuck to shorter stories that he can finish in a week (mostly). MFW Adventures covers highlights of American history. They do not schedule daily reading for the students to do alone, so I've come up with things that seem to tie to the lessons and a few that I'd like him to read a

    I have the 1A & 1B Home Instructor's Guides (Standards Edition) and the Challenging Word Problems 1--both are in EUC. I also have the 1A (Standards Edition) textbook. It does have about 5 pages that were filled in with pencil. My son forgot a few times not to write in the textbook. I do NOT have the 1B textbook. All of this new would cost about $60, I am asking $35ppd.


  14. Mine followed the revised 3rd edition. Hope that helps.
