  1. After a year and a half at a classical education school we are done with the school thing and returning to homeschooling. I am trying to fight the "squeeeze in the stuff we missed for 6th and 7th" and just be a normal person and start 8th grade. haha My plans: Math- Teaching Textbooks Pre-Algebra (he was doing Saxon at the school and hated it - he begged for TT because we used it before) English- Great Courses Building a Better Vocabulary, Wordly Wise, Sonlight Core F lit and writing, spelling (planning to use WW words for this, but also going to review rules of spelling all year), Grammar Sonlight LA and Keys to Good Language 6 History/Geography- Sonlight Core F Eastern Hemisphere, Eastern Hemisphere Map Skills, Great Courses Foundations of Eastern Civilization Texas History - Switched on Schoolhouse (just wanted a get it done thing he could do on his own) Science- Elemental Science Chemistry and Great Courses History of Science Logic- undecided but probably something from Classical Academic Press
  2. I did and I hesitate because Biology is the only one they offer.
  3. What is a good classical science curriculum that at least loosely follows WTM and isn't overtly religious? I have been looking at Elemental Science and it very much appeals to me, but I am not sure which one we should do for 8th grade.
  4. At what point are you coordinating the Great Courses videos with the History of the Ancient World?
  5. We are returning to homeschooling after 2 years of attending a classical ed private school. The first year was part time and this last year full time. We finish up in May and then we will be on our own again. I am a seasoned homeschooler, but I am feeling overwhelmed coming back to it for some reason. The school we have been at uses TOG and that was what we used, but TOG is too involved for our current life to go back to it. I am really considering Sonlight and leaning towards the Eastern Hemisphere core. My son will be 8th grade which is typically American History - modern years. My only concern about SL is it doesn't seem to follow the history pattern we are used to, but I really like that my son could "check the boxes." Anyone out there using SL for 8th grade plus that could give me some opinions? I used SL Eastern Hemisphere years ago with my middle son and it was one of our favorite years.

  7. I am a workbook queen, in the sense that I buy them buy the dozen at used book sales etc. I pay anywhere from .50 - $4.00 for them and sometimes only use one or two pages out of them. I then re-sell them. I don't know what it is about "dittos" but I like them. Probably because I enjoyed them in elementary school.

  9. Wow! Okay, good to know! I guess I will scratch her off my list!
  10. Has anyone used Simple Schooling? They have a high school unit on the Solar System, that I am curious about. I am just wondering what people think of the materials there.
  11. I am enjoying learning to use the new WTM site.

  12. Too inflammatory I guess.

  13. I got the shoe inserts for arch support and I made an effort to stay off it as much as possible for at least a week. It is tough to do that when you are a busy mom, but I was in miserable pain and needed it to stop. I also took Ibuprofen and had my dh rub my foot because it felt so good to have it massaged!
