  1. I'm looking for some resources for books arranged in order of historical topics. Something like All through the Ages. Are there any other options either online or in a book?
  2. We are doing Mystery Science this year and loving it. Is there any curriculum similar when we've done all their lessons? We love the video lessons and how it is played out step by step.
  3. I love the looks of Sonlight with the big pile of read alouds, but I want to do a chronological study of history with my 4th, 5th and 6th grader. Any ideas of for a curriculum like Sonlight but chronological?
  4. Thanks for the ideas! I'll check those out. As to the type of memory work-just in general what they should memorize from the different subjects such as math, history dates/facts, spelling rules, etc. All in one easy resource that we can do as a family. We do scripture, hymns, and poems already.
  5. Are there any resources for memory work that are similar to Classical Conversations? We dont live near a group and if I understand correctly you cant just by it?
  6. I'm looking for a writing curriculum for my 3rd, 4th, and 5th grader. I think IEW looks like a good fit as they dont know how to even begin putting words on the paper when I ask them for creative writing. But I would prefer something much simpler to use and preferably more independent. Any ideas?
  7. We've been using xtra math for a few years now. Does anyone have an idea for an alternative that would be more fun?
  8. Do you recommend to get the teachers manual also?
  9. I am looking for ideas for more independent spelling for my 3rd and 4th grader who fisnished level 3 of A AS 3.
  10. I am looking for options for preplanned morning time plans. Thank you!
  11. Thanks for all of the advice. We are coming from Righstart and All About Spelling. I'm probably looking too much in the opposite direction now, but I have a kindergartener starting next year who will need hands on.
  12. I am looking for independent curriculum for math, language arts,and Bible for these grades. History and science will be done as a family or coop. Something that I dont have to teach much or very little. More supervise and answer questions if needed. Teaching Textbooks was one option for math. Also they need to be offline options as we don't have the best internet service. Any ideas to add to my list?
  13. Are there any good sales on legos anywhere?
  14. My daughter is eight and also a fast reader. For her assigned reading for school I take turns with her by paragraphs reading aloud.
  15. I am looking for a geophraphy program that uses maps etc for teaching US geography for grades 1,2 and 3. Would one of these be better for this age group? Or would you suggest another curriculum? More for the fun of learning where each state is and geographical features than the state bords etc.
  16. We plan to use American history for young students 2 this year. Does anyone have any activities or resources they liked to use with it?
  17. My son is halfway through Level C. Due to expecting a new baby and having multiple younger children we would like to switch to something more independent at least for the first half of the school year- and possibly long term. Any ideas what has worked for others?
  18. Does anyone have any good ideas for this level?
  19. I use arm and hammer essentials deodarant with natural deodorizers. It says it has no aluminum. I buy it at Walmart. It works for me.
  20. I havent used it since last summer, but if I remember correctly you have a password and print it off of her website.
  21. We did Beautiful Feet Primary American history this year which stops in the 1800s. We are looking for something to continue Americans history to the present day. Do you know any that you Enjoyed?
  22. Does any one teach manuscript, Italics, and Cursive to their children? Or is it to Confusing? If you have what do you find works best to use for curriculum?
  23. I was hoping I could find a reasonably priced laser jet Printer on a black Friday Sale? Does any know of a good brand or place to buy one?
  24. I know very little about technology so I am wondering what do you find easier to use for memory work, songs, audio books etc? Cds or buy an mp3 player and put all books, music etc on that? Or is there a better idea?
