  1. https://www.underthehome.org/unauth/about A complete Charlotte Mason style elementary program. It's extremely well done.
  2. PM me and I will link you to the testers group on facebook. I'm uploading the first program Planting Seeds (preschool ages 2-5ish? it flexible) a few weeks at a time. All I want is honest feedback. You don't have to post about it or anything. Literally- try it out and let me know what you think.
  3. PM Me and I will email you the Beginning Handwriting.
  4. Would anyone be interested in testing out some programs I'm writing? I have been taking the material I've taught to my own students over the years, cleaning it all up, and formatting it into teaching guides. I have one program, Beginning Handwriting, completely done and I want a few people to review it and test it out. Other books and schedules will be done soon. I'm cross posting this to the PreK/K board as well.  The first set I'm formatting and releasing is the 3 years of material I teach in the primary grades. It will consist of 3 main guides, 1 per year, of Literature, History, Science, Art, Poetry, Memory Work and Enrichment. Three Handwriting Books- Beginning Manuscript, Advancing Manuscript, and Complete Cursive. One complete Early Math book. 4 schedules using Miquon Math. A complete Phonics, Reading and Spelling program and a Complete Grammar and Writing program. If you are interested in testing or reviewing any of the programs just let me know!

  6. Thank you for all of the feedback! We ran this poll on our Facebook page as well and got some great feedback there as well. It seems the general consensus is that it SOUNDS like a great idea but the execution might not match up to what we hope for it. I believe we have decided to offer the consumables as PDF only, provide certain dry erase materials (things that will be used often such as number bond mats, tens frames, etc) and make the rest of the program non-consumable. The hope is to make the program affordable, and usable with multiple children as well as making it easy to go back and review/redo concepts without having to make entire consumable review materials.
  7. I am in the process of developing a new curriculum. We originally were going to use traditional workbooks but as development progressed the idea of using dry erase materials that could be filled in different ways depending on the lesson was brought up. Since the workbooks are not fully finished and edited we still have the opportunity to switch but we don't know how well it would go over so that's where you guys come in. Would you be interested in a program like this? No workbooks, minimal activity pages, reusable dry erase materials, plus flashcards/charts, all planned out with corresponding crafts, literature, etc. The curriculum covers Language Arts and Reading, Math, Science, History and Art.
  8. These are free, its a full year of reading. Some books just have oral questions and some have written. I would use the Fifth grade guides since you've been doing Memoria Press. plainandnotsoplain.com/free-schooling-resources/
  9. Stardust and Coraline are my favorites. Not Neil Gaiman but his wife Amanda Palmer recorded a beautiful version of Wynken, Blynken and Nod as well that we love.
  10. Wordly Ways Fantastical Words http://www.wordlyways.com/fantastical-words-8th-10th.html It says 8th to 10th but I've used it with 5th graders several times and it perfect
  11. As for other recommendations The Keys to the Kingdom series by Garth Nix, and possibly Abarat. They are both on the fantas/dystopian side of things. Island of the Aunts- Eva Ibbotson, Losing christina- Caroline Cooney.
  12. In a few years have her re-read The Giver and then read Anthem by Ayn Rand (your older daughter could probably do this if she's still homeschooled). My kids compare/contrast the books right around 13 or 14. Its always an interesting assignment.
  13. Build your Library kindergarten Around the World is awesome and it would easily work for 1st
  14. OK so this has changed a bit, we are calling this year Adv 1st instead of going full on 2nd grade (she is a young five and while she CAN do everything I have listed we're having issues in whether she SHOULD). Reading- Pathway Grade 2 and The Good and the Beautiful Level 1 with a little of the K level for review. Math- Miquon Orange, Red and Blue and Green if she gets to it. Science- My Body unit and Grade 2 Interactive Science Notebook History- is up in the air but she's still doing geography. Handwriting- Pentime 2/3 Foreign Language- Spanish Gr 1 Grammar- ELTL 2 and probably some McGraw Hill worksheets
