  1. I need some ideas for grammar for this next year. We've been using FLL all the way through (DS levels 1-3; DD levels 1-4 and then Rod and Staff this year), and I'm having to acknowledge to myself that I just don't think it's working. Both kids can rattle off definitions and lists like nobody's business, but ask them to actually identify parts of speech in a sentence when we HAVEN'T just spent five minutes talking about that part of speech, and they look at me like deer in headlights. My son can easily tell you that "A sentence is a group of words that expresses a complete thought" and "All sen

  3. Has anyone used Royal Fireworks Press? My DD has taken a creative writing class and tutoring from the company, and we have been extremely impressed. Has anyone put a child into one of their online English Language programs? I have used their home curriculum for the past two years, but my DD has not taken the online curriculum. Any advice? Thank you!
  4. If you were to do just one more shot of grammar in high school for review, and to make sure everything was covered, what would you use? Pam
  5. We have decided to leave Classical Conversations and go back to homeschooling on our own this next school year. My son is 11, going in to 6th grade and has completed one year of the CC Essentials program. We actively participated and he did well for the most part, however the rush of the program stresses both of us. I am looking to use Rod & Staff English but having a hard time figuring out which book to choose. Do I choose book 4, 5 or 6 after using CC's Essentials of the English Language? Can anyone here help me?

    AcreSoft Psalms Memory Verse Grammar Copybook is a PDF file, of printable pages. These pages are great for copywork and grammar practice, and at the same time learning Bible memory. The PDF Contains Psalms 1, 8, 23, 67, 91, 103, and 121. After printing you can use the lines for copying the verse; and fill in the grammar puzzle box, by writing the words under the correct part of speech. There is also a section with answers for the grammar puzzles. The grammar puzzle colors are designed to go with the Montessori grammar object colors.

    Excellent condition. Price includes shipping cost. The MCT grammar series cannot be beat. We have loved this curriculum and the only reason I am not selling the full set is because my child doesn’t want to part with all the books. (Other books in the collection include Paragraph Town, Caesar’s English, Practise Town.)

  8. For grammar and writing for my fifth-grader, I'm planning to use Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind and Killgallon's Middle School materials, and I'm trying to decide whether to use both Killgallon's "Sentence Composing" and "Paragraphs" or just "Paragraphs." Would Killgallon "Sentence Composing" be redundant if I'm using Grammar for the WTM? I think it might make sense to use both, but I can't tell for sure looking at the samples.
  9. Hi all, "Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind," the follow-up to "First Language Lessons," will be available on PDF in just a couple of weeks and in physical form by late September or early October. But we know that many of you are eager to get started, so we're giving away the first six weeks of the curriculum here. This grammar curriculum was formerly known as "Advanced Language Lessons," and you may have heard about it under that title. It consists of a Core Instructor Text (used for all four years), yearly Student Workbooks (the first one is being released now, and #2 is in development), ye
  10. 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???
  11. 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 daugh
  12. 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
  13. 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 complexit
  14. Harvey's grammar looks good but I was wondering if you could tell me what the difference is between the Revised Grammar and the Elementary Grammar and Composition? The Revised English Grammar covers orthography, syntax, and prosody, according to an Amazon review. It sounds a little unusual and I'm not sure whether or not it covers standard grammar, since the descriptions are kind of unusual? I can't find too much info on the Elementary Grammar and Comp. Can someone tell me about these books? Thanks!!
  15. 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
  16. 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?
  17. :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 n
  18. 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
  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. 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
  21. 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?
  22. 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
  23. 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 ne
  24. If you use or have used Growing With Grammar 4, do you use a separate writing program or do you just use the writing portions of GWG? What about MCT - is the writing in the Island level "enough," or do you use something else as well?
  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
