  1. We do weekly P.E. at the YMCA. My oldest is a competitive swimmer who trains 1.5 hours a day. My youngest is on the recreational swim team and plays soccer. We do 5k races as a family. In the winter they both play basketball. I consider all of that P.E. A few cities around us offer P.E. classes as well. And their is a program called Saints coming to us next year. Anything like that around?
  2. Right Start C has a lot more writing than B. B is great! C is good. My ADD son does very well with RS and loves the games.
  3. I plan to focus on Am. History next year (3rd year in our 1st rotation) as our main curriculum. Then have SOTW 3 as a background reading to get an overview of what was happening in the world.
  4. We love ELTL and plan to cotinue it. I liked Wayfarers and when we stayed on top of it we loved it. But we got overwhelmed and dropped it after 1 semester. I look back and we really did have a good time with the reading selections and geography but I quickly discovered that we just can't do a combined program like that. Our days are too....asynchronous.
  5. My youngest struggled too in levels 1 and 2. 3 he's flying through as well. I'm still planning to do level 4 as I think it'll benefit him in bigger higher level words. Then we'll really focus harder on spelling and grammar. You could look atbthe level 4 word list and see if he can read them with ease or not. Mine did fine reading the early 4 words and then began to falter so I'm going to do 4 to shore up his reading completely.
  6. We enjoy it but we use Right Start so it came with the curriculum. If I were you I would try to find it used.
  7. My mental math skills improved a lot from teaching the strategies in level B.
  8. Mine have both done RS B and we loved it. They got a strong number sense and mental math skills from it. We did not ever use level A. My youngest is in level C and I still like it. Not as much as B though. He'll move on to Beast Academy next year like his brother did.
  9. We love AAR! My youngest did ABeka for K at private school. We did AAR in first when we switched back to homeschooling. He started right at level 1 because he had struggled with reading and I wanted to be sure he had a good foundation. My oldest did AAR level 1-3 in K/first grade and went to private school for 2nd grade. He picked up reading quickly and was a top reader in his class testing at over a 6th grade level.
  10. I would love to know more as well. We are strongly considering the Science in the Scientific Revolution for next year. I love the samples so I really want to give it a go.
  11. We've never done gymnastics but we are a sports family. We have one practice or a another every night. My oldest is a swimmer. He started on a city rec team and he did that for 3 years. At that point it became obvious he had outgrown the program. He needed better coaching and a more competitive environment. That ended up being at our Y but not all their sports are worth it. We happen top have a coach who is excellent. He trains them hard but understands balance for kids,especially the younger ones. My younger son plays soccer. He is on a rec team and will be for the foreseeable futu
  12. Level 4 wasn't out yet when my oldest went through the program. He picked up reading easily. My youngest has had a harder time reading. He's about 10 lessons from finishing level 3. Level 4 just arrived in the mail so I've only flipped through it but there are definitely a few lessons I will have my oldest listen in on. I know my youngest will benefit and I believe my oldest will even get a little out of it.
