  1. I am looking for science for my middle two dds for next year. They will be in 7th and and 8th grades. I’d like to have them do the same science to simplify things for myself. I’d prefer Christian. Bonus points if it has an audio CD as my 7th grader is a struggling reader. She’s come a LONG way in the past year but my plan for next year already involves more reading than she’s used to and I don’t want to overwhelm her. Also, I need it to not be super teacher intensive. My DH and I are around and can be involved and help them but we have some other “stuff” that we’re dealing with right now so at
  2. Oh yes! Maybe I should just do AOPS pre a. Most people seemed to go straight from Singapore math 5 if they were doing that but I think part of the problem is the change in format so that could help. Your kids did calculus in 7th grade?! Is that typical or are they fairly advanced?
  3. Currently lined up: Phonics Pathways and BOB books First Language Lessons 1 Writing With Ease 1 (I don't think she'll be ready for this for a while, but I have it on stand by) Story of the World 1 and Activity book Horizons Penmanship 1 along with Copy work Singapore Math 1 Song School Latin Book 1 Plus nature studies and notebooking incorporating art (she loves watercoloring). Here's my conundrum. I find myself really drawn to Ambleside online. I also know myself well enough that I like and need things planned out for me, such as FLL and WWE. And AO doesn't cover gram
  4. I already taught Singapore Math all the way through before I got my hands on a HIG. I did not feel it would have changed anything for me. But I love math and was always looking forward to future lessons and making up my own lessons. I had a lot of fun with it. If you are not that kind of person who likes winging it, sure, the HIG could help. Otherwise, I would not worry about it. What is in the HIG is explained in the textbooks. The HIG sort of scripts out how to explain what is in the textbook. There is no point of the workbook without the textbook. And the textbook can usually be found used
  5. Ok in a crazy moment I thought I’d attempt reading some Euclid. Seems unfair to expect my kids to keep educating themselves and not me right but in the first section of definitions I hit this 32. A rhombus is that which has all its sides equal, but its angles are not right angles: I’m pretty sure in building critical thinking skills and Singapore math a square was defined as being a rhombus? Do I just remember that wrong or is the definition different depending on the text?
  6. We started around 8 y.o with low stakes, no pressure tests. . Math Kangaroo for 3rd grade I think was the first. The early levels of Kangaroo are similar to Singapore Math and word problems.
  7. I always feel like 3rd grade is the year that I need to "get more serious" with curriculum choices, lol. For my DD (my 3rd, 3rd grader) we'll likely be continuing on with most things and starting new with others. Language Arts: Phonics/Spelling: Finish the Explode the Code series through book 8 (we're on book 6 now). Assorted phonics workbooks (she loves workbooks) Grammar: Possibly Easy Grammar, not sure yet. This is the first year I start "formal" grammar. Reading/Literature: Chapter Books with some basic book reports maybe some units from Moving Beyond the Page or Progen
  8. What Farrar said. I've been using Singapore Math for almost ten years now. My DD, in Standards Primary, is doing word problems similar to my son's Algebra 1 text but without the equations. She is using bar models to work the problems. The questions involve multiple steps and are far more challenging than what her friends in the local schools are being asked to do. I do find that Standards Primary is slightly more challenging than the US Edition and loads more challenging than the Math in Focus series.
  9. So, this is what I was wondering, too. The homeschool market has drastically changed in the last ten years and I'm wondering if the big price increases are because of it. I know stuff like the Singapore math workbooks, etc, haven't really changed in price, but I was looking at specifically MUS, SL, MFW, Oak Meadow...and some of those doubled or tripled in price. Also, there have been so many weird changes out there in the past year in the homeschooling world. Currclick is closing...the Homeschool Reviews Forum closed...Landry Academy....Sonlight closed its forums...there was another online
  10. Hi, Folks, I have been absent from this board so long that I had a notice on a post 3 years old! 😂 Today, however, I decided to pop back in and say thanks to my people who got me through the early years and on the right track. Next week we graduate our youngest. Homeschooling, despite its successes and stomach-pitting vertical drops, has been good to us. I won't go into the full story here, but with the youngest fully dual enrolled and now about to ship off to college, the dc have made the transition well. DS has a 4.0 and loves university, which is an amazing miracle to those who know ou
  11. I am struggling with the thought that my oldest will be 10 in the summer and "5th" grade level in the coming "school year". This last year we have had several changes and I've been really lax since Nov/Dec. Our boys all started the school year and a small private school in our old home town. We moved about 30 mins away at the end of Sept and pulled them out. We tried one of the K12 styled online programs in our state but by Thanksgiving I was fed up with their approach. We dropped that and took a small break. ODS has been doing B.A. online 3A and has finished all Singapore Math 3A & 3B and
  12. You need to know how to teach the "Singapore way." This is provided in the Home Instructor's Guides. You can also get this from reading Elementary Mathematics for Teachers. If you want the benefit of a Singapore math education for your children, it won't work to teach them the math the way you learned it (unless you learned with a Singapore-style program) and then have them do the Singapore problems. The textbook and workbook go together. The problems in the textbook are to work on during instruction, and the workbook is for independent practice. Both are important. But if you absol
  13. We will be doing pre K, K and 2nd grade math. Do I need the teacher's Manuals? Do I even need the textbook or can I get away with just the workbooks?
  14. This will be my first time teaching algebra, but my plan for fall for my son who is finishing up beast 5 now is Singapore 6 using Singapore math live. https://www.singaporemathlive.com I showed him AOPS prealgebra and Singapore 6 (well actually he just knew what it was like from doing Singapore 1-3 when he was younger) and he picked Singapore.
  15. Oh that's really interesting. So with math and EF (executive function), you're looking not only working memory but the ability to break things into parts. So she may have this big leap but struggle to break it into steps. Some people will fight that fight with geometry, having the kid do proofs. I think dig in there and use your judgement. The other thing is that if she's only not showing her work in the Singapore math, I wouldn't give a rip. Singapore is obtuse and unnecessary. They just visualize it and move on. I don't know, some people are so enamored of it and I'm not. She was showing her
  16. Science....Mystery Science and Considering God's Creation History...Story of the World Spelling...Spelling Workout Math....up in the air about this...I have Beast Academy so I would like to try it. But if that does not work out, it will likely be either Singapore Math Is Edition or BJU Math. Handwriting....Zaner-Bloser Writing....also up in the air. I might just do my own thing. Latin...Getting Started with Latin Also, she seems to enjoy MCP Maps, Charts, and Graphs so we might do that. We also will be doing things like nature classes, art classes, and
  17. I saved all of Singapore math and math manipulatives--I consider those tools of my trade as a math teacher. I was a sub last year in kindergarten classes, I'm an Educational Assistant this year in high school classes, and I actually pull stuff from my shelves to help kids learn. I saved a large portion of the history books we read over the years, as well as SOTW, History Odyssey, and Usborne and Kingfisher books of world history. Pretty sure at least my history-loving dd will want these. I have lots of kid lit too. Still have Latin for Children and Art of Argument (which I might use if I
  18. When we had to have family step in to help with homeschooling (dd/cancer, another dd/NICU for an extended period), we had to keep things very simple and very minimal to actually get it done. Math: do the next lesson in the book. CLE math is very easy for a non-teacher to grade, Singapore math bar models caused my mom’s brain to melt, iykwim. Phonics: we went to workbooks—do the next lesson. Art: Artistic Pursuits kits with the accompanying supplies were a huge hit. Sonlight science kits (with supplies) were a huge hit for my elementary aged kids at the time. Basically
  19. I will begin homeschooling my youngest grandson in the fall and I'm out of my element! So much information, so little time! We are pulling him out of public school due to problems with bullying. He always retaliates and gets in trouble so, instead of constant calls from the school, my daughter is pulling him. With only 5 weeks left, we are keeping out fingers crossed to finish out this year without any more incidents. Anyway, I feel relatively comfortable with Language Arts, Social Studies, etc. My concerns are, of course, Math and Science as they were not my best subjects in school mysel
  20. I have read quite a few discussions about Singapore Math on this forum. Many have acronyms like MIF, CWP, HIG, etc. I have compiled an outline here. Hope it helps. The Singapore Math curriculum was conceptualized by the Ministry of Education in Singapore. It became popular worldwide due to its consistent top ranking on Trends in International Math and Science Study (TIMSS). The early adopters are home school students. Currently Singapore Math is used in 100 over US school districts. The math learning process comprises three steps which are: concrete, pictorial, and abstract. The con
  21. I have no experience in math LD. I only have experience with getting work samples to submit for my oldest who handed in blank sheets for writing class work in public school. Regarding “evidence” from a calculator, there are printing calculators e.g https://www.amazon.com/Casio-HR-100TM-desktop-printing-Calculator/dp/B000I3C4EY Regarding handwritten work samples, my kid drew some and write some. If your son can draw something like the Singapore Math model diagrams, it does work as work samples. I know kids were allowed to draw apples, oranges and pizzas for multiplication and division
  22. My kids read widely and are very interested in science topics of their own accord. I don't really need to direct it. I make science a school subject only insofar as it is necessary to develop the discipline side of scientific endeavors. To that end, I far prefer a one-thing-at-a-time approach, because it's just more straightforward. Though sometimes a mixed-bag will get us where we need to go too, as is the case with the Science Detective series (referring back to specific lines of text) and the Singapore math junior high school science books (structured questions= guided analysis).
  23. We have a classical/CM approach and try to combine work where we can. We have three school age girls (next year they will be 11, 8, and 6) plus a little monster, I mean, two year old 😉 For my up and coming 6th (WHAT?!WHEN?!) grade daughter, I have: Singapore Math 5A and 5B, then Jousting Armadillos, most likely Bards and Poets I from Cottage Press for LA, stretched to cover the whole year plus a bit more if needed Apples and Pears for spelling - finishing up the final level in the beginning of the year. We'll switch to only studied dictation after that, either once or twice a
  24. Measurement is in 2C and 3C. FWIW, money and time are both in Singapore Math 1B.
  25. Where does SM teach this concept? This picture shows questions from placement test 5a. I can’t find a lesson about this in 5a...or any of the other books. Any ideas?
