  1. Can you tell me what the Singapore DM series is? I don't know what the DM stands for. SaveSave
  2. You have the series for Oxford University Press? The price seems a little steep. :huh:
  3. Question for those doing other than SOTW... do those curriculums all have their own activities or "plan," or did you do the SOTW plan (timeline, outline, etc.) just with these materials?
  4. Well, DS would LOVE this idea! Are these computer games or some platform? (Wii, Xbox, etc) Thanks for all the suggestions!
  5. Thanks so much! He hasn't done the Singapore WPs, so that is a great idea! I need to check out the Key to books. I haven't seen those before.
  6. This sounds awesome!! But...sounds like a lot of work on your part! Kudos to you!! I'm going to check out Oxford University Press, too.
  7. I'm not sure what to do with DS this year for math. He completed Singapore Math 5A and 5B last year and did well and didn't have any trouble, but now I'm not fully confident that he retained some of the material well enough. He is really difficult for me to figure out. He is highly advanced overall (and especially in language) and advanced in math but doesn't seem to retain anything "process" oriented. I tried to supplement with Life of Fred thinking he would love the literature aspect but he recently said he doesn't think it is adding much. He said he enjoys the story but that he ne

  9. Thanks so much! I'll check out History Odyssey level 2 and Beautiful Feet. Haven't heard of that one (BF) at all before!
  10. Last year was our first year using SOTW vol. 1 and since it was our first year, it worked out well for my 3rd and 5th grader. The children really enjoyed listening to the readings and enjoyed the activity pages. Additionally, my youngest (1st grade) learned quite a bit just from listening to the supplemental audio (he was in Montessori last year so wasn't HS'd). We started school this week and my plan for this year was to use SOTW vol. 2 but today DS (now 6th grade age-wise) mentioned he would like something more challenging. He is definitely advanced and is an advanced reader but has
  11. DS completed Singapore Math 5B in the spring and did well, but now I'm not fully confident that he retained some of the material well enough. I was interested in how the Singapore levels might pair up with the various levels of Beast Academy? I thought maybe he could take a break from SM before moving into 6A and do something else. Would appreciate any input.
  12. Yes, please! I'm looking for a schedule for MCT Voyage for my 10yo DS.
  13. DS LOVES membean! He is LA accelerated and uses it as a spelling/vocabulary program. We purchased the membership and have used it for about six months. He spends around 30 min/day with it and it is one of his favorite lessons. I am very pleased with the design, layout, and approach. I met the creator (Brett) at the VA Homeschoolers Conference last year and he was quite impressive in his understanding/usage of language.
  14. Ooh…one I actually did enjoy and might even like to try again. Thanks for the reminder!
  15. Ah, such a fun thread! My couldn't stand as a child include: Alice in Wonderland; Peter Pan; and The Call of the Wild. In high school, it was The Ra Expedition, Catcher in the Rye (couldn't get what was the big deal) and the Hobbit.
