  1. Glad I could help. 🙂 Just fyi, last i heard Chris Colfer has a new book coming out around october 1. 🙂
  2. 🙏 I hope it is less painful and he is emotionally better than last time.
  3. I try to do both WWE and w&r simultaneously. I just skip the copy work and dictation in w&r. It is hard to do both simultaneously, but I like the combo. I don't see why u shouldn't finish wwe3 before starting w&r.
  4. I ordered the fairly safe book since it was only $6. I am going to read science in the beginning today. That may work. Science in the ancient world will not work. I was hoping for something easier. 😏😆😄
  5. Hello, I am teaching the bible at a co-op this fall for only 15 - 20 mins. I would like to do science activities that relates to the Bible. I see that there are a few books on this subject. Does anyone recommend a good book? How about "Big Bible Science: Experiment and Explore God's World" or "77 Fairly Safe Science Activities for illustrating Bible lessons"? Thanks in advance.
  6. Thanks everyone! thanks Paradox for the science suggestions.
  7. Oh yeah. That makes perfect sense! Thanks forty-two!
  8. Hello, My friend is new to homeschooling. What programs would you recommend to teach science to a 1st and 7th grader? She would like to teach them simultaneously. How would you go about doing this? Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.
  9. Thanks homeagain. I love litwits, however, it is not what we are looking for. Thanks for the suggestion.
  10. Thanks for the ideas. i didn't realize that glencoe and schmoop were free. I'll look into that. i did read Deconstructing Penguins. probably need to read it again since it has been a few years. i just want a program that has me asking questions. a guide. 😁 Me and the other moms in the co-op are more math and science oriented. We all need guides! 😆 I do have ready readers from teaching the classics and i guess i need to buy the manual that has all of the questions. Those are good questions. That is probably what I need. I was just worried because i have never done a lit guide before and from my research it looks like people spend weeks on a book. We were hoping for perhaps just 5 weeks on a book. Thanks again!
  11. Hello, We want to incorporate literature in our co-op. I was thinking of using literature guides. Has anyone does this in a co-op that meets once a week? We would skip the vocab part and probably the writing. Our main goal is to really have a great discussion and incorporate literary elements in it. Is this possible? If not, what do you suggest to do? Thanks. Eta: This is for 5th / 6th grades.
  12. For those of you who feel like you have to defend yourself, please refrain from replying. If you do reply, please make it pg and not hurtful. If we get one more complaint, we will lock this thread. Thanks.
