  1. I just have the kids do a page or two a day. I don't really plan anything, and I don't always check the annotations. Sometimes I just guess or make it up. We use it as a supplement to Math Mammoth.
  2. I have never heard of any of this. Thank you for expanding my world.
  3. I don't know if this is what you're looking for but I saw this in a Rod and Staff art pad. Use a crayon to trace very darkly around the outlines and then use an eraser to drag the color inside. Very easy and looks very nice.
  4. For the immediate future, I would do this: a. RLTL- 1 b. R&S Math grade 2 first 40 lessons review of first grade math c. SOTW d. Interactive notebooks grade 2 Science You can also use the interactive notebooks for language arts. This is nowhere near a complete curriculum but it's someplace to start while you catch your breath and decide what you really do want to do. ETA: It should be relatively inexpensive, no more than $75.
  5. You might consider trying loom knitting. It is super easy with lots of great projects you can make - hats, scarves, and afghans. There are lots of great tutorials on YouTube.
  6. Not with spelling you see however I just spent the summer adapting rod and staff grade 1 reading and phonics workbooks to be used with the Spalding marking and phonograms instead. I am a big fan of tweaking just about any curriculum to make it fit what I need.
  7. I think you might consider the ACE curriculum. It is not one that I would generally use or recommend but with the specifications of what you were looking for this definitely something I would consider. I would also suggest the CLE program. I hope things work out for you and that you find what you need.
  8. I was told by two different school districts that at least in elementary school, if I wanted to transfer the kids back in they would either be put into an age-appropriate level or they would have to take a placement test depending the principal's preferences. Neither school district really cared what materials we used, and were not interested in seeing the completed work or a portfolio. We are in the Plano/Frisco school districts, and both were quite comfortable with the idea of children being pulled out for homeschooling for a few years and then being readmitted to public school. You might try putting him in a private school for one year and then transferring over to public school.
  9. My nephew will be visiting most weekends this year. His school uses A Beka math and I'm not looking to reinvent the wheel. I'm looking for a math enrichment program. Has anyone used either the process skills math or the visible thinking math workbooks? Or have recommendations for a different program?

  11. I've never even looked at Heart of Dakota because in my mind HOD stands for Heart of Darkness. It could be the best or the worst curriculum in the world but I'll never know because I can't even bring myself to look at the website.
  12. Primary phonics readers - They come in six levels of increasing difficulty. They also have workbooks and maybe some other things available but I've never used any of that. I think the books are excellent. They are available from rainbow resource.
