  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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?
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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?
  7. 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
  8. :glare: were currently not doing a formal grammar program after buring out of a few. so i decided that we will start Hake grammar in the fall, but i want to review punctuation, capitalization, commas, apostrophes etc... with my 9 & 10 yr old before then. my 10 yr old has them pretty much down part, but my 9 yr old (adhd, sensory dd) doesnt have much understanding of it. is there any type of curriculum for just this, that skips all the nouns and verb topics for now? any ideas? thanks! :lurk5:
  9. For the sentence "Now let's go play outside", which part of speech is the word 'outside'? Is it an adverb qualifying the verb or is it a noun? Let me know what you think. Thanks.
  10. My daughter's doctrine curriculum asks this question: "Who do I worship?" Is "who" correct, or should this be "whom?" Why who? Why whom? (I know, I know, I need to study grammar! I'm crawling through Latin, so in a way, I'm working on grammar). :D Thanks!
  11. OK... so every time I see one of your posts about Classical Writing I drool. Why? Because it looks soooo good! You love TOG, as do I, and so I just respect your opinion as a fellow Togger. My questions to you: have you used Writing Aids? How does it compare to Classical Writing? I know CW has grammar folded in, so in that case, how does CW grammar match up to R&S grammar? We're using R&S for grammar, and use WA for writing, simply because I like how the writing assignments in TOG pertain to what we're studying in history. So for you to switch to CW, it just makes my ears prick up. What
  12. (Accidentally posted this on the General Board and am copying it here where it was originally intended!) I am reading Teaching the Trivium right now...there is definitely much in it that I find questionable and I am an evangelical Christian though probably not as conservative as the Bluedorns. Anyway, I am wondering in particular what people think of what they said about teaching grammar at a later age. Their contention that teaching grammar to children under 10 could be potentially damaging to the kids was really striking! Is there any kind of response anywhere that people know about rega
  13. Hi! I am new to the forum and Classical Education Afterschooling. I stumbled across the classical approach looking for books for my son ,12 years old, to read as he loves ancient mythology. Anyway he is a great reader and does well in math and science. Unfortunately his spelling, writing and grammar all need work. Our school district is notoriously lacking in these areas. So I want to start by bringing him up to speed in these areas and moving on from there. I need help deciding which grammar curriculum to use. I have ordered Spelling Power as it has an assessment that lets you know w
  14. Hi I was wondering what level of Easy Grammer and Daily Grams I would start at if i am doing my 1 st yr of grammer for my 5th grader but reading at 3rd grade. Also di I need another language program with Easy Grammer or is there language in it to? Thanks Teresa
  15. I'm looking for ideas for 2nd grade "grammar." I don't want anything workbooky (I use Exercises in English for my oldest and it's a good fit, but level C would be too much for my 2nd grader.) I'm looking for something extremely low cost or free - maybe notebooking? any ideas??? TIA!
  16. I've been teaching grammar, reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary and punctuation informally from grades 1-4 just using the books we read. We're in good shape, but for fifth grade the little guy has asked to do something more formal. Would you share your favorite language curriculum for fifth grade? There are so many out there that I end up like a deer in headlights. Thanks!
  17. We haven't really done any grammar at all and my ds is 12yo going into 7th grade. He is an avid reader and hates writing. I slacked for years and didn't do penmanship because he disliked it so much. Next thing I know, he is going into middle school and still doesn't want to physically use a pen or pencil. :toetap05: I've started IEW with him and he seems to like that alright but still detests using pens and pencils. (A friend also recently suggested teaching him to type. duh on my part) Anyway, his understanding of high quality literature is great, so I think that once he can ove
  18. I have a fidgety boy with the attention span of a flea, but very bright, tactile (a real mover) and auditory. What Grammar and Language Arts program will work best for him? He did well with Saxon Math, but that may be because dad taught it (dad is visual and rigid and comfortable with math). My son is dramatic, moves a LOT, sings, fidgets and smart. Help? I have looked at SO many... and again, I need grammar AND language arts. Can anyone give me direction?
  19. My son is a fidgety tactile learner with a short attention span. He is dramatic and bright. I was looking at Hake Grammar and other traditional/classic programs, but I'm afraid he won't have the tolerance. Are there any good comprehensive Language Arts or Grammar programs out there that a figety, smart boy won't hate? I'm pretty new at this home schooling! Thanks! Elizabeth in Panama
  20. I was wondering if you all could give me some ideas for teaching spelling, grammar, and vocabulary for sixth grade. My son is actually probably at a 5th grade for spelling and grammar and advanced for vocabulary. (I'm not sure how advanced.) When I was home schooled we had Wordly Wise, but I'm not even sure that is in existence anymore. These are my son's least favorite subjects, so I would need something that might "jazz up" the subject a little. Thanks, Kari
  21. My daughter is going to be going into 2nd grade next year. I am going to be switching her from McRuffy Phonics and Reading to GWG, and I'm not sure if I should use 1st or 2nd grade. She has not covered subjects and predicates or the 4 types of sentences. However, I see there is review at the beginning of 2nd grade and this is covered again (in more depth, I'm sure) in 3rd grade. She picks things up really easily, so I'm leaning toward just getting her the 2nd grade. I can certainly make up more exercises for her if she needs more practice on these concepts than the review would give her. This
  22. Ok, so I am still in a quandry about grammar next year. I will have an "old" first grader (almost 7) and a young kindergartener (just turned 5). So they are one year apart in school but really 2 years apart. I bought Shurley Grammer 1 to begin with my first grader. AFter seeing how intensive it was, I knew that I had to do it with BOTH of them if I was going to have to put that much effort in it. I looked through it more in-depth and think that once you get well into it, it might be too much for my 5 year old - prepostions? object of preposition? (Maybe it is just because I
  23. Who has done a Shurley Grammar co-op? OR any kind of grammar co-op? How has it gone? What ages did you have? (and how did you separate them?) What did you do at home? and class? Did you like/love it? Did you do it a second year?? Carrie:-)
  24. School is clicking now for my dd6. She is now functioning above grade level and experts disagree on a diagnosis of dysgraphia. Personal I don't believe we dealing with dysgraphia, she loves writing and her ability is improving. She needs short lessons with movement time between or she retains nothing(no she not ADD). Right now she on a 2 to 6 grade reading level, and she wasn't reading 5 months ago. She opinionated about what materials she uses. I think she trying to avoid stuff that gives her issues, not a battle of wills. No colored pictures or anything she finds baby-ish(no vision
