  3. Sorry. No review. We're planning on using it next year for 7th also! Would love for someone who has used it to chime in.
  4. Looking for suggestions of the best geography apps for android which would include things such as the major rivers of the world, the major mountain ranges of the world, etc.
  5. Does anyone happen to know if there are answers to the suggested exercises which are contained within the story of Grammar-land by Nesbit?

    ISO Biblioplan Medieval Family Guide (2016) May also be interested in their corresponding timeline and maps. I do not need any of the other books.


  7. I was going to suggest Art With a Purpose also.
  8. Does anyone have a reading schedule of Sotw 2 that includes the History Lives Books by Mindy and Brandon Withrow? There would be a few chapters from Peril and Peace, then Monks and Mystics, and some chapters from Courage and Conviction. I have found a schedule that includes Trial and Triumph. I think Biblioplan may include all of these resources together, and has them scheduled, but is it worth it to buy it just for that? TIA.
  9. Thank you for asking this question. I'm interested in Spelling U See also, but I'm just not sure about it. I had not heard of Wheeler's before, so I clicked your link. Their first rule is if a word ends with the sound of a "t" then spell it with a "t" instead of "ed" such as burnt, instead of burned. This would not follow what our modern day spelling teaches. I like and prefer those older spellings, but it just isn't what our children will read most of the time. I'm almost to the point of going with SpellWell for my ds. I'm thinking of Spellbound for my dd's.
  10. This is exactly what I was thinking. Make it copywork first.
  11. I have not used these, so only throwing options out to you. Teaching Textbooks. Math-U-See. Mastering Essential Math Skills by Richard W. Fisher - for this, once you buy the book, then you get a free code, which is inside the book, for short online lessons. I'm considering this to fill in some gaps for my dd's, or I'll use MM. Systematic Mathematics - I just went to their website and it says that they are no longer selling curriculum, so you'd have to find it used somewhere.
  12. All subject to change, especially if one of ds's sisters is homeschooled again next year. Math: CLE 300 with MM supplementation OR just transition over to MM and see where he lands, probably 2B to start. Reading and Phonics: AAR 4 or if he finishes that over the summer, then likely Elson Readers (which I love, love, love), but if we do BFB Medieval History that would be enough. Science: If older sister is homeschooled then I'd like to do one of the Berean Builders books or Apologia Astronomy, and (see history below) History and Literature: I'd like to incorporate BFBooks Medieval History with above science somehow, or just read aloud SOTW 2 with supplemented books. Grammar: Might not even do this, or "I Laid an Egg on Aunt Ruth's Head." Latin: Prima Latina maybe? This has a lot of grammar built in, so maybe our grammar will just come from this. Writing: Core Skills: Writing Grade 2 or 3. Spelling: SpellWell or Spelling U See, what I do know is that AAS is not working for us, even though AAR has been great! Vocabulary: Wordly Wise 3000 3rd Edition Grade 2 or 3. Bible: Studying God's Word finish Book C and go to Book D
  13. Does anyone have a link to the BB site with the schedules for different history publishers? I'd love to know if they have one for BFBooks Medieval History!
  14. I now understand how the OP feels! Never did I suggest that parents are in charge of how the teacher conducts his/her classroom. Teachers are to work with parents, and parents with teachers. There have been plenty of times, outside of report cards or PT conferences, when I have contacted teachers in regards to various issues. If I would have waited for the report card or PT conferences, it would have been too late. Now, it is very unlikely that I would ever ask to see all of my children's assignments at once, and it's unlikely that I would visit the teacher inside or outside of the classroom without first arranging a meeting time; but, yes, should I ever need to do so, I will. Public schools are taxpayer funded institutions. This does not mean that we have relinquished our rights regarding the content of our children's educations to the government. This thread has made me think that this is exactly what many people believe, and is a huge reason why so many choose to homeschool. Of the five different schools that my children have attended, each school has sent work back and forth, and to date, nothing has been lost or overly damaged. In fact, in each school it was expected that the children would finish work, when needed, at home. Part of them learning responsibility is to make sure that their work returns on time. Yes, if there is a big enough issue, then Mom or Dad or guardian should visit the school. Usually I would arrange a meeting ahead of time, but there are times when observing a class unscheduled can be very enlightening. Should the teacher stay after or come in early so Mom can come in and discuss issues - YOU BET!!!! This would be a prearranged time.
  15. I agree with you - that you should have full access to ALL of your child's work whenever you want to see it!!!! Yes, you can and should be sharing mentoring rights with school teachers, for goodness sakes, their job is to teach and your job is to make sure that they're teaching your child! No, it doesn't have to be all or nothing! If my dd's school held back as much as the teacher you're talking about, I would be VERY worried, and you bet I would be showing up unannounced in school, regardless of whether or not they have a so-called open door policy! I'd be emailing the teacher and asking questions, and making sure that the teacher is answering via email so that you have a hard copy of it, just in case. I'd also copy the principal on those emails! And, setting up an appointment to speak with the principal. There's absolutely no reason why this teacher should be unwilling to do what you have asked.
