  2. Can one do the book without the DVD seminar?
  3. Thank you for all the feedback, it really help me so much. I am going to take the plunge and get SWI level b first and when money allows the new TWSS.
  4. I am really confused and don't know what to do. I am thinking of dropping our all in one language arts program and only go with IEW. Been looking at comments and reviews for over a year now, jsut haven't taken the plunge yet. I have to start by saying I do have the complete Fix It Grammar updated program and love that. Also have Phonetic Zoo have not used it yet. Also have another spelling program. My thoughts are this on options: - SWI B later add in Teaching the classics - TWSS then the Themed books and later adding Teaching the classics Money are tight but I am willing to make the investment where it is really needed. With that being said, must I get the TWSS? Can I not just do the SWI level b and move on? I am a little scared on the spending as we still need to pay excessive shipping and taxes to get it here. English is not our home language just as a note. (but most of our subjects we do in English) We are from SA. Kids are both Gr6. Any recommendations. I am a little scared to be honest, what if my kids hate the lessons? How long does it take a day? Does it come with some sort of schedule? Thanks
  5. Did you look at the new Megalog with all the different Themed books. Perhaps there is another one you could select that would work better for you.
  6. We did a trial run with Fix It! Grammar before I bought the entire set. My kids love it. I always see where I can 'try before I buy'. Fix It only takes a few minutes a day.
  7. Have you looked at Progressive Phonics. It has books you download, worksheets etc. Best all free. My kids loved it.
  8. We use Science in the Beginning and the kids really enjoy the curriculum. If you are unsure, why not download the sample and give those first few lessons a test drive and see if it will work for you or not before you commit to buy? There is also a free downloadable journal/notebook on the publishers site. Best of luck ;)

  10. Just a suggestion, perhaps check out some books at the library, our library stock several great books of only experiments. You could also check on Pinterest for ideas, there are thousands ;)
  11. Some suggestions (my recommendations) Mapping the World with Art by Ellen McHenry Basement Workshop There are a number of products available on the Geomatters website Also Geography through Art. If you are into unit studies you can look at some of the country studies from Amanda Bennett. You can also check out some great ideas on Pinterest.
  12. Why not wait for black friday and get more than double what you normally would and use it for curriculum, books, etc...
  13. English is also not our native language. I use one of the narration sentences and made a copywork page out of it. I got the English narration sentence on top, space where they can copy it and then the same sentence in our language and space to copy it. This works well for us. I however just ask some questions of what happened etc.
