  1. Hello! I'm sure this has been addressed before but with the forum indexing still ongoing, I've not been able to find this in the Forum or through the Google Search instructions. My daughter will be entering 1st grade in August and this will be the first year we pursue the classical approach so I'm trying to get a big jump start on planning, purchasing materials, etc. In the Well Trained Mind, under Reading Skills three levels are mentioned: Instructional, At Level, and Below Level. These make sense to me, but I'm puzzled as to what exactly "instructional" readings would be. We are us
  2. I'm considering using Winter Promise's Hideaway in History this coming winter/spring. I've read mixed reviews about WP, but many of them are quite old. Any recent experiences with them? I'm looking for a curriculum for my newly 6yo that incorporates (1) living books and (2) activities. She is an only child, so can handle a bit extra prep, etc. Thanks so much!
  3. Would it be possible to use these side by side? I have a 6.75 year old (1st grade) who needs the Foundations program to help with reading (and set a good baseline for grammar rules). She knows how to write letters and knows some very basic phonograms so she can read very early readers but is not confident and guesses some words unless I make her sound them out. I also have an 8 year old (3rd grade) who would be in the faster paced Essentials since she is an incredibly advanced reader. She knows some basic grammar rules, but I want to help her memorize more (along with a program that helps wi
  4. This will be my third year homeschooling and I'm switching things up a little bit. I have a DD who just turned 8yo in June (so she could be entering 2nd or 3rd grade) and DD who will be 7yo at the end of Oct (and is starting 1st grade). I also have a DS 4.5 yo and DS almost 3yo. In the past I've kind of done a hodge podge of different things - utilizing some memory (I've been making up ridiculous songs since they were babies -before I had any idea that was a 'thing' with schooling), some workbook stuff, some spine books for history/science, lots of random arts and crafts (my kids love to draw
  5. Hello all! This coming school year (which will start in the summer for us, since we school year-round), I will have a 4th, 3rd, and 1st grader. With the 2 older ones, I have been doing SOTW Volume 1, which I'd like to continue doing and have the 1st grader start to join in. I think it will go pretty well. Half way through the year or so, we'll move into Volume 2, which technically is for 2nd grade and up. Should this be a problem? I haven't seen any of the activity pages yet for the 2nd volume. Can anyone give me any insights into what types of pages there are? Will I have to be creati
  6. We just got my almost 7 year old evaluated and he is on the autism spectrum. I'm so glad to find this out and have a diagnosis! I am wondering how to proceed with the math though. He is very smart and has already memorized all addition facts, subtraction and multiplication facts, he is working on division right now, but I expect by the end of next week they will be mastered too. He doesn't really like manipulatives he just gets numbers and only uses helps like the abacus/cubes if he has to. Up till now we have been using Abeka math he likes how varied it is and the colors, but it is moving t
  7. My 6 year-old loves to read but absolutely does not want anything babyish. Hes been trying to read the boxcar children and gets very frustrated, even though I think he is doing well just needs a little help and goes a bit slow (which is totally normal for his age). Is there a book series that is a bit easier than magic tree house or boxcar children but not anything in format like Henry and Mudge, Dr. Seuss or the leveled readers? He considers those for babies (I think it has something to with the pictures and that they are not set in real chapters), he wants to read a "real" book. Any sugges
  8. Hey all, We are in the process of having my dd tested for ADD, sensory processing disorder, and anxiety. I'm pretty sure ADD is an issue (I and 2 of my family members grew up with it and still have issues today, so I know a thing or two about what it looks like) but need to figure out the other things that are at play. Anyway, my 7yo dd is lagging behind in math. Her attention span only lasts about 5 minutes so getting through a concept can be a bit of a challenge. Another big issue that is contributing to her success is a highly perfectionist personality. She has a complete meltdown
  9. My first grader is reading pretty well but still doesn't have confidence in himself, meaning he tells people he can't read and says he doesn't know how when in reality he's reading much better than my older two at his age and they were both very strong readers. Here is where I need help thinking. We have been using 100 ez lessons for reading, we are at lesson 50 but he's been complaining and I really think he is getting bored so I went to the last story at the end of the book to see if maybe it was too easy for him and he read it pretty darn well! I only had him do two sentences and he only
  10. Ok, I may have just hit the jackpot here, or at least this is how I'm feeling! Check out this MEGA bundle of printables that are all FREE! http://www.educents.com/educents-k-2-freebie.html Worth $78 but for free for a limited time only (and counting!) so claim it quick! So far so good, my kiddos are loving it! I hope you do too!!
  11. So, this coming fall, when my DC are 6, 4, and 2, we are going to read the ESV Bible instead of a Bible story book. Now that I know that, though, I have been trying to decide how much to read each day, and how much to cover in a year. Here are the ways or curricula I am considering. One story/passage a week, spanning Genesis to Revelation. Chronological. (Possibly based on year 1 from Ambleside Online.) 2 stories a week, spanning Genesis to Revelation. Chronological. Going through the Bible and picking every story/passage/psalm that I want them to read, then dividing it (eith
  12. Ok, I have heard so many GREAT things about All About Spelling. It kind of seems expensive to me. Spelling Power always appealed to me since I only had to buy 1 spelling book for K-12. Can you tell me more about All About Spelling? 1.) Is it a phonics program as well as a spelling program? 2.) IF I decide to get AAS, what should I get? 3.) Would this be a good program after finishing TYCTR100EZ lessons (and reading the suggested books)? 4.) Any other suggestions for a good spelling/phonetic program? :confused:
  13. My ds is 7 and in between 1st and 2nd grade. We used the Pathway Reader "first steps" with it's correlating workbook last year and he did well. Now that I'm getting curriculum ready for this year, I'm getting overwhelmed at where to start him. I'm trying to take a small (let me emphasize small) step back to fill in any phonics gaps he may have. The teacher guides in PR suggest that one workbook goes hand-in-hand with another workbook, etc. We did not start with the beginning workbooks last year (Learning through sounds, Before we read, etc). I have all the workbooks and have looked throu
  14. If you had to choose between these two programs (IEW Primary Arts of Language Reading/writing (or) Peacehill Press OPGTR/FLL1/WWE1) what would YOU choose and why? I'm having a hard time deciding between the two. I need a program that will allow me to jump in and start my ds where he needs to be and both of these programs seem like a good fit for that. The program we currently have is too difficult to place him where he needs to be because it jumps around and has no scope or sequence in the teacher guide for me to follow. In order for it to work, we'd have to go backwards to move forwards.
  15. Sooo.....my daughter has been in kindergarten this year, first homeschool with Saxon in the fall, then private school with no set curriculum in the winter, and then back to homeschool this spring. (Insanity, I know). I felt like Saxon was too....fluffy...even back in the fall. She could do all that stuff already, except rattle off the date, and rattle off counting by 5s to 100, and by 2s to 20. The patterns, the geometry, that kind of thing she could do without a thought. Back in the fall, I added Kumon workbooks for Time and Money. So, starting HS again in the spring, I picked up Singapore
  16. So, I really do like Saxon Math. Not so much the script, but the way it teaches the concepts & the spiral method. HOWEVER, dd & I both hate the worksheets (we are in Saxon 1 this year, btw). I don't really feel they are necessary, at least at this level, and they're too repetitive! However, dd does generally like worksheets & they help me asses how much she knows. So, I'm toying around with the idea of just getting the Teacher's Manual for Saxon 2 and some other workbook (1 idea is The Complete Book of Math or maybe Singapore Extra Practice workbook?). Has anyone else tried this or
  17. My DS6 wants more hands-on science. I'm following WTM curriculum suggestions for 1st grade. We usually read a few pages and then he writes a one page summary, and sometimes draws a picture. It's ok. He doesn't fight me, but he's not super-pumped about it. I'm wondering how I can make biology more hands-on at this level. When I think of hands-on science, I go straight to baking soda volcanoes, and other simple chemical reactions which would be chemistry, and not used in WTM till later (3rd or 4th, I forget...) or physics topics like heat transfer and magnets, etc. I don't think he's ready f
  18. I am using Saxon Math 1 with my kindergarten boy. Conceptually, I think we're at the right level. Not frustrating hard, but not pointlessly easy. He gets the ideas with a small amount of discussion and manipulative use. We did lesson 15 today. We did the meeting, a written assessment, then the lesson which covered two separate concepts, and then he had the regular workbook page for the day. 45 minutes! That's just two long. And I felt like he stayed on task really well!!! Two questions: 1) we are only doing one of the two workbook pages for each lesson. I can't imagine adding th
  19. My oldest always complains that younger one is having more fun "doing" school because last year to keep the youngest out of trouble I bought one of those Preschool workbooks from Walgreens. I guess my Kinderone thought that it was more fun than what she was doing. Last year my kinderone did: Cursive first (some, we did it slow...) Epikardia (kinder/1st grade) which included: Bible, History (ancients, though it is a world history in a yr curriculum), Science (she has samples online if you want to see it) Math-u-see Primer SWR Both did the phonograms of SWR, both did calendar, Bib
  20. Hi all! I am a homeschooling mom of three. My oldest daughter is 6 years old and is just finishing up with Kindergarten at home. My middle daughter is 3 1/2 years old and will begin PreK work in the fall. My youngest son is 7 months old and just chills while we work. :) We were members this year of a local Classical Conversations Community and LOVED it. We will continue that next year with my oldest moving into Apprentice class and my middle daughter in the Abecedarian class. So we will use the CC curriculum to cover fine arts, history, science and basic memory work. BUT I am struggli
  21. I am still trying to get my feet under me as far as homeschool goes. I keep saying "She is only in K" but I cannot say that forever. I am trying to lay out some realistic goals for next year. What has worked for your first grade year? I am going to keep the focus on Language Arts and Math and throw in other stuff. How many hours a week have worked for you? Any 1st grade tips as I prepare for next year?
  22. I am about to order my curriculum for next year. (As in, it is sitting in my shopping cart!) : ) Here is what I have planned. What do you think? This is our 4th year homeschooling, but I can't resist getting feedback! 3rd Grade Saxon Math 3 God's Design for Life Science Story of the World Vol 2 First Language Lessons - Level 3 Explode the Code Level 7-8 Wordly Wise Level 3 Sequential Spelling Level 2 Handwriting without tears, Cursive, grade 3 Writing with Ease Level 2 1st Grade Saxon Math 1 God's design for Life Science Story of the World Vol 2 First Language lessons
  23. I went to a parent meeting for a cottage school tonight. While I knew immediately the school was not for us I did gleam a few ideas from them. One of the things was that they don't teach reading per se. They have these little cards and start in kindy with teaching the phonemes and spelling. The curriculum is made special for them, but they let us see it. So from what I gather they start with the letter a and teach how to say it every sounds it makes (long short ect) and how to write it. They say it takes until the end of 1 st grade to complete. Like I said they don't teach reading and the firs
  24. Ok, so my kiddo (6) is reading pretty well. He completed TYCR100 ez lessons, WeBster's syllabary and a kindergarten year in Abekka phonics. He is fluent except for the area of developing expression while reading. He does not like to read right now. Over the summer, Should I: A. " Fill in the blanks" with OPGTR and require him to read aloud to me 15 minutes a day and I read 15 minutes at least a day. B. have him read aloud to me from a reader to build fluency (go down a level) 15 minutes a day, read aloud to him ( up a level) 15 minutes and have him read to himself ( at level) for
  25. Long story short, first a little background. I am a 24 year old widow with 3 kiddos. My girls are 6 and 4 and I have a 2 year old son. We are blessed to be receiving enough in survivor benefits from social security to make it with out me working. However, I am now a full time college student, 99% online, which equals a lot of not sleeping. We always planned on homeschooling but when Steve passed and I realized I was going to have to be in school full time for the first semester or two I enrolled my 6 year old in 1st grade and elected for full time public PreK for my 4 year old, which
