  1. Thank you so much for your reply @caedmyn !that sounds VERY doable for me! I have been doing multiple levels of all about reading and spelling for 4 years....and yes. I feel so done and just want something different. thanks also for making me feel normal:) Sometimes I feel like a wimp because I am tired of teaching phonics:))
  2. oddly enough my dd13 is loving ace math!! We also tried TT and mus and just wasn't working. she likes the colorful pages and the small packets. They introduce things slowly and it is mastery in a way, but a HUGE amount of repetition. My daughter works almost 3 years behind in math but we are actually making progress with ACE!!!
  3. Hi! I have 4 kiddos, but my question is in regards to my youngest 3. I have 2 10 year olds and a 13 year old. My 13 yo dd has global learning delays and issues so i lump her i with my other 2. my other 2 are also (non diagnosed) dyslexic. Anyway...i need some insight to help me make things realistic. i always want to do too much and then MY school schedule is 8 hours without even a potty break . lol So, my 2 of my kids finished aar4. My son (10) was a late reader so he just finished aar3 but has flown through it and hasn't struggled much with it. None of them are ready to fly on their own in regards to decoding. so i would like to do something as a group. I have decided to do REWARDS. I also do apples and pears spelling. right now i have it that I would do REWARDS plus have them do outloud reading as a group, but I'm wondering if that is too much (I always tend to do too much ;) and that is what is making my day a bit too long right now. so for those that have used it. did you do it? Did you do REWARDS and that was the end of their reading time with you ? ( I will still be having them silent read). Also, has anyone else used REWARDS with multiple children at the same time? I am going into my 6th year of homeschooling and you would think that I would have learned to only focus on one thing at a time, but I want to do it all and thus my times of burnout:) I hope i make sense. Anyone that has any other suggestions on how you handled multiple kids with reading challenges...would love to hear!
  4. Thank you so much for the response ! I ordered it and am just going to take the plunge. The thought of just opening and going for spelling is very freeing to me! Thanks again! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I would love info on folks that have used apples and pears. I have 3 children that I use all about reading for and all about spelling . It is obviously VERY time consuming. I spend 90 minutes to 2 hours a day just on reading and spelling. I am really burning out on spelling . I spend a lot of time with it and my kudos are still atrocious ;). My 9 year old will ace the lesson and totally misspell it in outside writing . I know that's Common but of I am killing myself to work on spelling ...I want it worth it! Lol I really don't think the rules mean a thing to my kids ...I believe they are WAY more visual spellers. So I'm considering apples and pears. I've read such good things. My concern is that it will take just as much time as now. Has anyone used apples and pears with 2 or 3 kids? How do you orchestrate it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
