  1. This topic is probably thoroughly covered in another thread, but I haven't been able to find it Can some experienced users tell me how all of the components of the WTM language arts are supposed to be sequenced and used if you did it ideally? And which instructor manuals are truly necessary for each part? I can't wrap my mind around what's "necessary" and whats supplemental if you used this as your primary language arts program. I've got a 7 and 9 year old with scattered language arts experience and I'm trying to figure out what to do with them next year. Just not sure how all of the parts work together.
  2. I'm wondering if the notebooking style of curriculum would work better for my family than just reading aloud/doing the occasional project. Does anyone have a favorite curriculum I could look into? So far this year we've dabbled in medieval and early American history through read alouds, but it's a struggle to motivate the kids to gather and listen anymore. My oldest two are 8 (9 in feb) and 7, and there are two little brothers who have derailed almost everything this year at this point. I'm at that part of the year where I panic and feel like nothing is working for us/I need to just sell it all. :nopity:
  3. I don't understand the point of it either. Especially in your kids who are better off learning the feel of the English language by being exposed to good literature. I'm doing rod and staff 3 with my 2nd grader (1st grader is tagging along) and I'm just skipping the diagramming. It seemed like busywork for them. We might learn the basics of diagramming when they're older, but for now I'm skipping it. I never learned it myself, so I'll be learning with them. To be honest, I don't have much interest in it though.....haha. We're enjoying learning about subjects and predicates right now though. I made up a mad libs type game where everyone contributes random subjects and predicates and then we link them together to make silly sentences. Things like "batman poops in the meadow." English lessons with little kids. What can I say! Lol!
  4. I've added several subscriptions to my YouTube account! Thanks for all the suggestions. I came across one called the Art Assignment that looks pretty neat.
  5. Winnie The Pooh (the dramatized version with Stephen Fry) so rich and so great! LOTR A series of unfortunate events Bud, Not Buddy (my 5 and 7 year old are totally different in their preferences and they both loved this one. And I did too!) Penderwicks (seriously, do it) I don't have audible, but I would if my library system didn't have so many audiobooks to choose from. Audiobooks are a wonderful resource
  6. It looks so old and fun! I got sucked into the inertia video
  7. I love that too! And the kid version is usually wonky and adorable
  8. I know there are probably some great resources for history/science/art/math/Shakespeare etc on YouTube or other video sites, but it's overwhelming to try to dig them out. Got any favorite channels or videos for your elementary kids? This isn't super "educational" but my k5 and 7 year old love doing the art hub for kids drawing videos
  9. We must live nesrish to one another. I'm in NOVA too!
  10. We're not required to name our school in Virginia, so this is purely for our own enjoyment. It's surprisingly hard to choose something! I have decision paralysis.
  11. My kids might like hopeless academy. It sounds like something from a series of unfortunate events. Lol!
  12. Omg. That makes me want to name my school something from what about Bob. Hahaha.
  13. That's so neat! I'm into sewing and stenciling graphics onto tees, so I'll be making their school clothes. My emblem will need to be simple enough to get carved into freezer paper and ironed on so I can paint it. I'm just so stuck on the name! It needs to be able to grow with the kids. I was considering Greenhouse Academy or Wildwood Academy because all 4 kids are named after plants. But I was also thinking of a name based on truth or bravery. We're moving in the next two years, so street name is out.
  14. I love that quote. I've been reading lately about how it takes humility to become truly educated.
