  1. Maybe not what you're looking for but Adventures in Odyssey has a special US history audio collection through HSLDA. It's a male voice, but with kids and voice actors through out, and it's done really well. I use it for my 4 kids ages 5-11. https://store.hslda.org/adventures-in-american-history-p321.aspx
  2. Thinking this might be fun for my younger kids to follow along with SOTW. But not sure such a thing exists. Anyone? :)
  3. Just when I think I know what I'm going to use for next school year, I second guess myself! What do you think are the absolute necessities to cover language arts for a 3rd grader? Thank you!
  4. Possibly check out SRA phonics and Explode the Code (starting with book 1, not book A)? I"m not sure if that's an official answer for you or not, but look into those :)
  5. My 1st grader is younger, and I'd like to do phonics review with her over the summer. I'm wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a workbook that could be reviewed/completed just over the summer, not an entire years worth? TIA
  6. I've seen them, and haven't purchased them because I have all the same questions as you. They seem like a great supplement if I knew what to actually do with them.
  7. I love these sets so much! Well, I don't own them, but I wish I could buy several to read to my 8, 6, and 5 year old kids!
  8. Thank you all for the wonderful suggestions! Lots to look into.
  9. For DS Math-Saxon 3 Language Arts- Abeka (spelling, phonics, etc), LLtL 3 History, SOTW 3 first semester, The Light and The Glory for Children 2nd semester Science-Apologia Flying Creatures of the 5th Day Bible-Reading a more advanced youth Bible DS struggles with writing, so we haven't yet started cursive. Though it looks like we'll be adding that at the beginning of the fall. ETA: Also, reading books ,books and more books! Great classics, biographies, etc.
  10. My husband (an absolutely brilliant programmer) highly recommends code academy as a starting point.
  11. My 8 year old son (2nd grade) was/is a struggling reader. I felt like I tried everything, then picked up the Ordinary Parents Guide to teaching Reading. We skipped the first several lessons, since they were focusing on the letter sounds, and I knew he knew those. This has helped leaps and bounds with both his reading/phonics understanding, and his own confidence. We aren't done with it yet, but we've been able to move on to him reading parts of books. We'll be done with the book in the next few months, so I'm no longer concerned about him being behind. Good luck! I hope you're able to find something soon that works for you and your child.
  12. It's too much for my 5 year old. My older two love it. Anything similar to Apologia but dumb downed that anyone can recommend? I've only just started school with her, so we are working on the very basics, I'm just planning for fall.
  13. Also, did you do their Supplemental science and enrichment? It looks like a great add on.
  14. Thank you @cherryblossom! My concern about time is that I also have 2 older kids I'm HSing, and a 2 year old. The older two (6 and 8) are becoming a bit more independent, but of course still require a lot of my time. What did you buy, and choose to not buy? Where did you buy the read alouds, etc? I look forward to your review!
