  1. Help. I have a 7th grader whom has always done well with grammar. She did R & S 6 last year and was fine. This year she is completing R & S 7 and is doing horrible. I don't know if it is the age...or what. Someone referred Analytical grammar to me and I would love any response or opinions to this. If you have any other suggestions for Grammar for her please let me know. :bigear:
  2. I really need the hives help! I really appreciate shurley grammar, I like the classifying and the jinggles. But it just so teacher intensive!!! Plus, I do it with all 3 of my older kiddos at once, but truthfully it is very difficult to get them together all at the same time. They each work thru their subjects at different speeds, and day after day we are left waiting for someone to finish their morning work. Then it gets so late we skip it and our grammar studies have become very choppy. I am pleading for suggestions :confused: I guess I am looking for something they can open and run with. I don't mind working with them individually, so long as there is some independent work involved. Is this making sense to anyone? I'm wondering about R&S...
  3. Several reviewers said they were upset about the newer hs versions. Here's a blurb from Exodus books online. Sooo, what about other Shurley English options? I see they have a public school version and I found the teacher's manual used, but it may be to classroomy, IDK. Workbook would be more $ but I prefer them at first glance, I think. I'd have to get the cd separately if I went that route. Should I just order the CD-ROM to make it a surer bet of a positive experience for us? Also, the above site says this: Do any of you skip years or see the need to add extra practice? Shurley users what do you think? Thank you!
  4. Is there any such thing as a grammar copybook? What I mean by this is a copybook for all the grammar usage as in nouns, verbs, adverbs, etc... Something that has the description of each and examples to copy. Does this make any sense?
  5. I am not a parent but a private school teacher trying to help other small schools improve their curriculum. I am in search of recommendations for an elementary grammar textbook, in print or out of print, which would focus on analysis, a grammar progression teaching parsing, definitions, etc., but which could then be integrated with the poems, dictations and readings chosen by the school. I would like something drawing students slowly to penetrate the nature of words & the structure of sentences, every year going deeper, not just fill in blanks and jump through hoops of randomly organized grammar worksheets! Whole-sentence exercises are great! Does anyone have any suggestions? Ann Marie
  6. Can you tell me what your favorite Grammar Program is and what you like so much about it? Next year I'll have 4th and 2nd graders home schooling. A friend referred me to the Winston Grammar program which sounds great, but I thought I'd poll the HS universe first :D... PS> Please don't use the acronyms for programs w/o spelling them out first. I know what so few mean at this point...:confused: Thanks! Thank you! -Melissa
  7. I am using AG with Homer, which has worked fine. CW has more depth, but so far my dd has been able to follow it without a problem. Looking at Maxim I noticed there are still lessons scheduled out of Harvey's Grammar. Now I am worried, well kinda. I know it will all work out. Can this be dropped? Is it review? Can anyone tell me what sort of grammar is covered? If there is new grammar then I need to come up with a game plan before she finishes Homer. :D Heather
  8. I posted this on the wrong forum by mistake. I'm reposting here. Hope that doesn't irritate anyone. Anyone willing to diagram this sentence for me? "Manchmal fragte ich mich, ob ich mit meinen Augen dieselben Dinge sah wie der Rest der Welt." specifically "wie der Rest der Welt" Thanks so much!
  9. Have a look at this very funny (or maybe tragic) youtube clip and cool grammar teaching resource (if you can use iPhone or iPad) from www.coolrules.com uses hip hop, dance, rock and acoustic music. My kids love it.
  10. :) Very funny clip and great iPhone/iPad grammar teaching resource. Check www.coolrules.com
  11. Anyone willing to diagram this sentence for me? "Manchmal fragte ich mich, ob ich mit meinen Augen dieselben Dinge sah wie der Rest der Welt." specifically "wie der Rest der Welt" Thanks so much!
  12. I've been using Exercises in English from Loyola Press. I believe it was recommended in one of the earlier versions of TWTM. What is recommended in the newest version? I'm looking specifically at grades 3-6. Exercises in English has worked b/c it's not a lot of parent work, but at this point my DD is getting bored with it (the format never changes). Thanks!
  13. I am brand new to homeschooling and am looking for a grammar curriculum for my 5th grader. I'm using Saxon Math and supplementing with Singapore. Otherwise, I'm not really planning to use any curricula, but we will start with Renaissance with the goal of making it to roughly 1800 with our history and literature intertwined. My daughter has excellent reading and writing skills, so I'm looking for a grammar curriculum that will challenge her without boring her and that I can easily adapt to her existing knowledge base. Suggestions???
  14. Hello all! I'm a mother to four great kids (15, 13, and 6 year old twins) and I will be homeschooling them beginning this fall (except my 15 year old). I'm excited and scared, but I see that so many people are thriving and their kids are doing so well. That gives me hope and confidence. My oldest daughter who is 13 has recently been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome. From the beginning I knew she was very different from my son, but kids aren't the same so I just took it at face value. Then I had my twins (fraternal) and I saw some similarities between one of them and my oldest daughter. I looked into sensory disorders, non-verbal learning disorder, and Asperger Syndrome about a year ago, but I felt like I was "trying" to find something wrong with her instead of just accepting who she was. I tried to talk to her about seeing a specialist, and getting some medication for depression. She was sleeping all the time, hiding food, having rage outbursts, constantly defiant, and obsessivly lying. She finally agreed to go to a psychiatrist about 3 months ago. She put her on Prozac. It was then that the doctor mentioned AS. I felt verified and relieved. I mean, no one wants their children to struggle in life, but at least I wasn't going to rack my brain trying to figure out how to "speak her language". With my other three children, I learned how to deal with their quirks. I knew what to do when they were frustrated, sad, mad, or just feeling blah. That's what I mean when I say "speak their language". There was always a wall between myself and my oldest daughter. The Prozac helped with the depression so that we could start working on her issues with AS. And for the first time in 13 years I'm learning her "language". I've been researching different types of ways to homeschool. I'm really clicking with the Classical method. I'm starting with a clean slate when it comes to my twins. They just finished Kindergarten in PS. However, my oldest just finished 7th grade. She's really behind and I don't know where to start. In my attempt to understand AS, I've been reading that spelling is easier, but my daughter is horrible at it. It's like instead of being visually dyslexic she's mentally dyslexic. She doesn't see letters backwards, but she switches letters in words. For example, she'll spell calendar, calander (switching the e and the a). It's like that with a lot of words, and she doesn't know the meaning of a lot of words that should be on her level by now. I agree with the Classical method emphasizing the spelling, grammar, writing, and reading. These subjects and math are very difficult for her. I was looking into Easy Grammar and Daily Grams for her. I think I should start her below her level. Maybe at the 5th or 6th grade. I don't know what spelling program to use or what level to start her at. I feel comfortable looking for reading and writing curriculum. We are going to use Saxon for math. Does anyone have any suggestions for the Grammar and Spelling portions? Did anyone make it this far in this incredibly long post? I appreciate all who did, and any suggestions that are provided. Thanks!
  15. My twins are rising 3rd graders. They are good at Math facts, but some concepts don't seem to stick well. For instance, time, geometry. While we work on a topic they do well but year latter they seem to have forgotten the basics. This summer I plan a different approach. We are using Singapore Math 2B. Today we did SM 2B fractions today. Tommorrow I will use SM 3A fractions. Day After I will use Harcourt-3 Fractions. After that SM IP-2 Fractions. After that CWP-2 Fractions. Basically it will be the same subject all week but from different books with different level of complexity. Has anyone used this method? I plan to use the same method with Grammar too.
  16. Could anyone compare these for me? Is one "better" than the other? My son has been doing R&S (he will be finishing book 6) up until now. We have the opportunity to put him in a coop class for English next year, but I am not sure about Easy Grammar. The book they will be using is Easy Grammar plus. I like how rigorous and thorough R&S is, but am fearful that he will not get the same thoroughness with EG. Does anyone have any opinions? TIA Becky
  17. I'm considering using "Lingua Mater: Language Lessons From Literature" next year for my daughter who will be in 7th grade. From what I understand (from this forum), Lingua Mater teaches both grammar and writing. It sounds like a very good program, but I was mainly just looking for a writing program since we've been using Rod and Staff for Grammar for 4 years now. So should I drop R&S (7) next year, or do both Lingua Mater and R&S? Is that overkill on grammar?
  18. :001_huh: my 9.5 yr old dd has no concept or retention at all of 4th grade language arts. she cant even properly distinguish capitilization! she can tell me the definition of a noun and verb, but cant distinguish a proper from a common. sigh. we have gone over this all year, it seems if shes constantly drilled, shes fine with it, but if we have a break in school for a few days in that subject, poof its gone. she is VERY imature for her age, and has a few minor learning disabilities along with adhd. i know they say at a certain age a child tends to think differently, and trust me shes not there yet, were as i can see that difference in my 10 yr old this year. i have no idea what to do. any ideas or suggestions PLEASE! i know down the line i will be using winston grammar with her, but shes very much not ready fo that yet.
  19. I've read message after message about how awesome, inexpensive, and thorough Rod & Staff is. That's great, but I am looking for a completely secular program, either for stand-alone grammar or for a complete language arts curriculum. So is there something out there that is secular and thorough? I've looked at Analytical Grammar, and that is one I'm considering, but I'd love a program that continues year after year. Thanks in advance. Jenny
  20. If my kids start grammar in 2nd grade and study it every year through 8th grade, what's left to learn in high school? Do my kids really need to study grammar for eleven years?? Tara
  21. But I am learning! :D Not very quickly though. :confused::confused: (Two smilies because dh and I are studying together.) We were working through Analytical Grammar the other night and really need to know what role the "probably not" plays in the following sentence: "This story is probably not an accurate version of how your nation's symbol was made." If I could know everything before I started learning it, it would be so much easier :lol: Rosie
  22. I am looking into grammar for a first grade level. I am considering Shurley English Level 1 homeschool kit and First Language Lessons for the Well Trained Mind with Audio companion by Jessie Wise. Can anyone give feedback whether negative or positive regarding either of these curriculums?
  23. Ok, I love grammar...LOVE IT! I learned quite a bit of grammar in school and college. I would like to find a rather rigorous grammar program for my 1st/2nd graders. Is FLL the best, most thorough? What about..... Growing with Grammar? Shurley? Analytical Grammar? (the jr. program doesn't start until 4th/5th?) MCT (I think there's a grammar program there?) Rod and Staff? What am I missing? I can probably make any dry-boring and/or tragically unappealing program work....as long as it's a thorough program, I don't care. TIA
  24. I have a 1st grader and am starting to think about the coming years. (a homeschooling disease) She is doing FLL 1 and WWE 1 this year for "grammar and writing". If we begin MCT in a year or two, does that replace both FLL and WWE OR do we also need a writing program, like IEW or Classical Writing? What combinations of programs have folks like for 2nd and 3rd grade? Do you pick MCT for grammar/vocab and then pick IEW or Classical Writing for the writing? Classical writing seemed to have a lot of vocab and grammar, so then is MCT needed? This is my oldest child and it is all new to me. I have four children, so I don't need to do overkill either. Whew. It's enough these days to just make it through :) Thanks! __________________
  25. DD4 is verbally gifted (reading at 2nd grade level). We are doing kindergarten this year, and I am looking for a grammar program for next year. She requires a lot of interpersonal interaction and conversation. She will do worksheets out of a sense of duty but would much rather talk to someone or work cooperatively. I like the idea of cuddling up on the couch together with FLL, and I like that it starts sentence diagramming early on. But I am concerned that it will be too boring for her. I have also considered MCT, since it is geared toward gifted children. But I am really put off by the font. DD is very rule-oriented, and I am not sure she will go for a book that looks like a child wrote it. (OTOH, she might like the idea, too.) Can anyone give me any insights into either of these programs for a very young gifted child? I am thinking that we might start with FLL next year and then perhaps move into MCT later on?
