    I have an gently used Phonics Road Level 1. This includes the Apprentice Building Manual, the Foreman's Construction Guide, and the detailed phonogram cards. The only things missing are the clipboard, student tool cards, the pencils and wet erase pen--none of which are essential for the program. However, the things included are essential. I am asking $80 ppd. This is a great price. The Phonics Road retails for over $200!! Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for looking!!!

  4. I'm planning to use the same images to make a timeline like this: http://www.charlottemasonhelp.com/2009/07/our-historical-wall-timeline.html
  5. I like the idea of doing different strands of history. I plan to continue with American history. I also don't like a ton of projects--and I don't find my kids really need them. They're pretty happy with the books we've read and good discussions. I'm kind of thinking something like this: Story of the Ancient World (for OT/Bible) Child's History of World (for broad overview) And then American history books
  6. This is what I'm struggling with: 1. I really want/ed to do OT as history. I want my kiddos to know that Biblical events actually happened in history. So I decided to use The Story of the Ancient World by Guerber/Miller (along with a few other books). I like how she combines other civilizations with the OT history. 2. I am not someone who minds planning stuff like this out, but I find myself thinking long-term. Am I going to want to do this every year? I also have 2 more kids, hence, more planning as the years go on. I've also noticed that all the time I *thought* I would have t
  7. Have any of you designed your own history curriculum and glad you did it? I'm in the process of doing this, but it is a lot of work and I'm starting to wonder if it's really worth it. Thoughts?
  8. Do you think a 2nd grade child who has completed Prima Latina could do this? Thoughts?
  9. We read The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by the same author and loved it. I had a hard time keeping back the tears during some chapters.
  10. The standards version has the same content as the U.S. Editions, but rearranged to reflect California State math standards. I've heard the standards version is preferable because the Home Instructor's Guides are better.
  11. Don't forget the D'Aulaire biographies. My DS fell in love with Benjamin Franklin after reading it.
  12. I went to Rea Berg's presentation on this guide a couple of years ago, and I don't remember any of it being religious. In fact, I learned a lot from it. You learn what's going on on the West Coast while the Europe was colonizing the East Coast. Like I didn't know that the Russians were trying to colonize California!! The one book from the series that I would say is not-to-miss is The Cruise of the Arctic Star. You could use the guide to at least know what order to read the books in and at least have an idea of the point of each book--don't feel like you need to be legalistic about it
  13. So, are you using these three together. Where/when do find the RightStart book helpful? (I remember you asking about the RightStart book a while back.)
