  1. Whether you’ve just pulled your child out of school or have been preparing to homeschool since they were babies, taking the first step toward homeschooling can be overwhelming. It’s completely normal to feel a little nervous about this. You are not alone! We’ve all at some point been pretty much where you are. Panicked and overwhelmed. Not to worry, the Hive Mind here at the Well-Trained Mind Forums have put together this letter and link fest to get you started on your path to homeschooling. So grab some coffee and your favorite snack and get ready to begin your adventures in homeschooling!
  2. A coupld have recommended Singapore Math. Which version should I link to if it's for all grades?
  3. Well here it is. My newbie info guide and list of open and go curriculum. I've been at it off and on since 5 am. My eyes are tired and I'm not completely done. I had to reformat all of the bullet points after copying it over. Feel free to critique, even butcher it. I want it to be a collaborative effort. I kind of want to keep only the Free - $25 section, but I'm flexible. I'm sure there's more I could add to that. I'm also not sold on the boxed curriculum. I don't want them to have to buy anything other than the box to avoid confusion. Whether you’ve just pulled your child out of
  4. So in a previous post it was mentioned that children aren't resistant to learning but maybe the schoolwork. With that in mind, my 3rd child is very different than the two boys and I'm looking for curriculum suggestions for her. Definitely has traits of distractibility and slow to start with a lot of complaining. Its hard to say what her learning style is because I feel she hasn't really developed a love of learning from her current private school. She loves art (painting, drawing) and legos. She says she likes science but hates doing the science end of chapter questions she gets sent home.
  5. Is the OP just asking about kindergarten? The only thing we did for K was: math: Singapore Math (preschool-K) handwriting: HWOT Spanish: some CDs that had spanish songs for kids. And then lots of read alouds and going places and playdates and games and creative free play and arts/crafts. Gradually as elementary school went on, I added in more subjects, but a lot of the time we were only doing 10-30 minutes of any particular subject per day.
  6. I recall I did not like Singapore Math until level 3. I own all the textbooks and some supplemental books through level 6. Daughter was doing Math In Focus at her charter school. It was not going the best, but the teacher was not good at teaching it. The teacher would make up weird worksheets on lined paper and then xerox them and hand them out and none of the kids or parents really knew what she was getting at. She pretty much got through MIF 2A. At home, she can test out of 2A of US edition Singapore Math, but I can see she is really working at it. However, she did get the problems correct
  7. For kindergarten? As long as she doesn't need something actually scripted, I'd consider these "open and go" in the sense that you can just look at and do: HWOT: Letters and Numbers for Me, one page a day Singapore Math Kindergarten B (assuming baby has already heard of numbers and can do a little counting), textbook only, 10-20 minutes a day Phonics Pathways for both phonics and spelling, 15 minutes a day or until baby is tired Read picture books aloud to student, minimum 3 a day. We liked having an author of the week and reading several by the same person. science: Ge
  8. You are NOT a failure! Now bite your tongue! Servie, My suggestion is BJU Math. It is not difficult to teach. The TM’s are scripted and the kits come with everything you need. Toss the tests or use for origami practice. With a new baby, the teaching vids would help you out a ton, if you can swing it. They have dvd or online options. Yes, it’s pricey. We think it is worth it. No more math fights! If that sounds blah, then I suggest you look at Dimensions Math by www.singaporemath MiF= Math in Focus, another Singapore math option.
  9. One thing I have cherished in teaching my kids has been the opportunity to learn alongside them. Story of the World taught me more history than I remember from school. Even the early levels of Singapore Math introduced me to math concepts I didn't know. I read Winnie the Pooh and Five Children and It for the first time. I even know what a preposition is! Lol. The flip side to that is the more I learn, the more I realize I don't know. I feel like I may never catch up. But then, is there such a thing as catching up?
  10. Okay, so your students have the ability to generalize and do understand symbols. They did not understand the task you asked of them. Normally that means they are placed inappropriately in the curriculum or the directions weren't complete. After that, there are insufficient details. What strategies did they use? Count up, count on? Where are they in the continuum of knowing? Anywho,, I"m going to bow out; this is clearly a rant as its not how arithmetic is taught here...you might find the website engageny.org to be of interest as well as the strand info at https://www.k-5matht
  11. MathPo! Avert yer eyes! Ye have been warned! It appears I have failed to actually teach my children math. The fault lies in a lack of consistency, but I'm having trouble forgiving myself for seeing the problem and pushing on anyway. I feel like a failure as a teacher because my kids already were not at "grade level," and I somehow thought continuing on a weak foundation would somehow correct itself. Foolish, foolish me. I've talked with Reader and Runner, and we've agreed to start again with Singapore Math 1A. We're going to dedicate half an hour per kid per day (including weekends,
  12. What level is he at right now? Singapore Math has "Challenging Word Problems" books for 6th grade level. If he is into solid prealgebra territory, then, my suggestion would be to use the AOPS prealgebra book like @daijobu suggests. Also, there are the Math Olympiad books: http://store.moems.org/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=4141&Category_Code=OLYMPIADBOOKS - you can get any of them to practice Word Problems.
  13. We use Right Start. I like it for the presentation and the fact that the early levels have a minimal amount of written work. They have a great math games book that is divided up by topic so it can be used to supplement other curriculum. That book and a set of basic number cards and corners cards and multiplication cards would be perfect for second to third grade to go along with Singapore math. I concur not to start anything until after the holidays.
  14. My daughter is completely burned out from her charter school. Everything was done through copy work there. She is not behind at all academically, so I am not concerned there. She does seem to enjoy reading. Her spelling is good enough that I could easily put her in SWO D if I were going that route. I am unsure where to place her for math. She used to love math, now she hates it. She has become convinced she is bad at everything. They did a horrible job teaching the math at the charter school. They used Math In Focus, but then would make up their own tests and the tests would have content that
  15. I will show all this to Scotsman when he gets home. She is a much better woman than I am, Gunga Din. Let me find a few links for you... A while back I started a topic about the different editions referencing an article I found online. Now I can't find it! Of the 3 called Singapore (Primary, Standards, Common Core) the consenus seems to be Standards has better Home Instructor Guides and makes fewer 'leaps' conceptually. The new Dimensions is really new, so I don't think anyone knows much about it, yet. The website below has a comparison chart. https://www.s
  16. Thanks to ITT, I am now researching Singapore Math. Why, you ask? Because I want something that works but doesn't feel like such drudgery. I personally like many of CLE's explanations because they make sense to me (I wish I had learned this way in school) and I rarely even need the TM, but it truly is a standoff most days with Oldest. So if I can find something different that he will actually DO and understand, I'll try it.
  17. I have CutCo Knives. I need all of them sharpened and one replaced, blade snapped inside the handle. I don't want to send them off becasue they are the only knives I have. I really should, though. Bookie, I hope you like the cake! I have Baker's Chocolate on my pantry shelf. I may just need to get off my duff and go make one. I did already make sour cream cinnamon cake, though. So Scotsman found an article this morning about intermittant fasting and wants to try it. Y'all have any tips for him? He thinks this way he won't need to exercise. His idea is to eat first at 8:30 (an egg/sau
  18. Hits: Dropping Latin once and for all. Singapore Math as always Misses: Rod and Staff English. This appeals to me a lot, so I try it out on at least one kid every year. But I am going to give them away. It is not going to happen. Memoria Press Classical Studies and Christian Studies. Bravewriter. We tried all of it and it was all a miss.
  19. Hits: Math: AoPS geometry and online BA. BA has been a long and painful road, but it has done wonders for my DS's critical thinking skills. MM for my 2nd grader. Singapore's challenging word problems. GSWL ELA: WWS 1 has been one where we are seeing the fruits of his labors and it is so rewarding. For my 4th grader, I did a home-brewed writing curriculum and he writing is improving so much. Daily Paragraph Editing by Evan Moor. All things Killgallon. WWE 2 interspersed with my own assignments. ETC 5. My 2nd grader reading aloud to me from A-Z mysteries. His reading has improved
  20. This is a tough season for us. It will get a lot better once my #3 has her driver's license. Until then, I schlep her to her community college classes 2x a week. The three littles stay home with #2 on those days, and their productivity varies considerably from day to day. We haven't signed up for spring semester yet, so we don't know what our schedule will look like after Christmas break. Our hits so far: -- BJU Math, with a break for my 6th grader to use the Key To workbooks for a while. I switched from Singapore Math when #3 was in about third grade, and we've stuck with it for K-6
  21. One of my children would only do math, or any subject really, when I would sit with him the entire time and make it interactive. In his case, he did Singapore Math. We did it verbally and on the dry erase board and so on. We skipped reviews in the book and did computer programs for review type stuff. He still did the workbooks though. But just the basic workbook, no extra add ons.
  22. Loving this thread! I'm more with you square_25 I adore teaching elementary math and conceptual/hands on is where it's at, in my very amateur opinion. I'm not a teacher or mathematician, I didn't do any formal maths after grade 12. I did quite well in school but maths was very procedural and a couple of truly abysmal teachers meant I tapped out and instead focused on humanities. I love maths though, and I love it more having now had the chance to get down into the sandbox with my kids and get my hands dirty making it conceptual. I can't say with authority whether it works best though, I'v
  23. Glad you are enjoying it. Hope you have opinions to share! Is Right start the program with all the games and manipulables? If so, I did look at it and was impressed. I used MEP and Singapore math with my younger, and then we did 3 years of PreAlgebra (crazy I know, but I just wasn't convinced he was grasping stuff, and like Square25, I was not moving on until concepts were rock solid). My older has been self-taught since the age of 7.5. He considered teaching to be cheating, which included the textbook I might add. So I'm not even sure how he learned fractions. My best guess is trial a
  24. My son has been selected for the magnet and GT programs. However his assessments are all over the place. He gets 50% at times and 80% at others. He has unpredictable patterns. I need to build up his math sense. He is a 10 year old, past the age to do Singapore math or Beast Academy books, as his curriculum is above those. What would be good books to build up math sense?
  25. YES! Anything Singapore Math, LOE, AAS/AAR, etc., etc.. Just say no. And I can relate and laugh at everything else the rest of you said, too.
