    I am looking for the books for Oak Meadow's 6th grade history and english. I would prefer from a smoke-free home. Thank you


  3. What did you like about it? I've only used the early grades and wasn't overly impressed. I'd heard the upper levels were better, but I'm unsure.
  4. Ok, that was my overall feeling as well. My daughter is continually drawn to the promise of project vs. so much constant writing, summarizing, etc. I was drawn to the combination of english with the history as my last few english purchases have been a bust. Think we might just use SOTW and HO as a jumping off point and find project to match. sigh.......................LOL And now to find something Englishy........ :-P
  5. What grades did you try for OM? What was disappointing? We also tried K-2 and were disappointed. Like you, I've heard better things about the upper levels, but......once bitten, twice shy!
  6. Thank you. That is sortof the feeling I got from flipping through it. :-/
  7. Yes, we've done this until now and I will continue to do this with my younger son. But my daughter is moving into middle school and is requesting a bit "more" while still keeping it fun. I'm running out of steam for creating my own thing and would really like something to use as a springboard/spine.
  8. Hello everyone, I thought I had everything set for next year and then......I didn't. Right now I'm flip-flopping back and forth between History Odyssey Level 2 Ancients and Oak Meadow's fifth grade English/History. I'm looking for opinions on both, please. English hasn't been a focus the past two years because my daughter was very advanced in this area. But as a result, writing hasn't been a focus either and needs to be brought up to snuff. She isn't very excited about doing ancients, but most of the books in OM's program have already been read multiple times. Nothing is really l
  9. Thank you, everyone, for chiming in with your suggestions!! I haven't made any decisions yet, so if you have other thoughts, please keep them coming. :-)
  10. I believe there are some aspects of Waldorf schooling that could help crossing midline, etc. I need to pull my notes out and review that aspect. Thanks for the heads up on this.
  11. Thank you!! The "ding ding ding" method makes sense to me! LOL He does have some auditory issues, but mainly I see visual mistakes. Also his secondary characteristics fall closely upon the visual side as well, i.e. clumsy, trouble crossing midline, awkward running, etc. And he is highly visually oriented as well, so I'm thinking that something leaning visual will help more than the auditory will---of course, not to exclude the auditory aspect, but perhaps less strong of a focus, if that makes sense. Sounds like the best thing is probably going to be a mix of methods!!! So typical
