  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
  2. My 8yo son is currently using Horizons 3rd grade math. We both like the worksheets and that it has built in review. He's moving through it fine, but I feel like we're reaching a point where he is looking for more of the "why" not just the "how". I'm not looking to abandon the curriculum entirely, but I'm looking for something to add to round out the conceptual side of math that I feel is lacking. I've seen a lot of people talking positively about RightStart, Singapore (I see there are 2 options, Dimensions Math and Primary Math - happy to hear about both of these), and Math in Focus and

  4. I am going to be doing SOTW 2 with my 2nd and 4th grade girls next year. It is easy to find literature for a 2nd grader because that is typically when one would be in that year. I have found Classical House of LIterature to use with her. I may not use every day's narration page though, as I think she would become frustrated. However, I am having trouble finding some history based literature for my 4th grader. Does anyone have suggestions for 4th grade or 5th grade level books for this year in history? And did you do special questions or anything to go with them, or just have them read an
  5. Hi, I know it is seems early to start preparing which curriculum to use in Fall 2014, but I got an email recently that the local Homeschool trade show/conference is in March. So, prior to that, I really want to have most of my curriculum choices nailed down! Anyways, this year we are using MFW Exploring Countries and Cultures. It is going OK, not LOVING it like we did MFW Adventures. Next in the MFW cycle we would be doing Creation to Greeks. I will have a 4th grader, 2nd grader, and 1st grader doing the work. Questions, what was your opinion of CTG? Was it fun? Did kids enjo
  6. This next school year I am taking a break from HOD for my upcoming 4th grade daughter because I want to start her in Creation to Christ for 5th grade when her skills are more developed. She has already done the program before this one (Preparing Hearts) so I need to find some sort of filler program for next year. We are going to be focusing heavily on the 3 R's (thanks to the kindness of a friend who gifted me some great materials), and I am looking for something fun for things like science, history, music etc... Her younger brother, age 7 may sit in on her lessons. Any suggestions?
  7. I am putting together a reading list for 4th grade...so far, we have Stuart Little (rereading it for OM), the Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Black Beauty, Amos Fortune...... Other recs appreciated.
  8. I was wondering if a 4th grade plan thread had been started yet? I am thinking about revamping a lot so I'm looking for inspiration :)
  9. i'm interested in ideas on several things: 1) if anyone meshes elements of IEW, MCT, WWE/WWS together to create a personalized mosaic of Language Arts for their kiddos in elementary and heading into middle school. {{fyi background: our DS10 is finishing off 4th grade; DD8, 2nd. we combined LA this year (for the first time) with our DD in 2nd grade to do MCT Island+IEW SWI-A and it was a phenomenal success. i still had them working in their respective WWE levels peppered throughout, and i will probably continue that same approach because DS10 is generally stronger in linguistics than DD8.
  10. Ok, so I've searched for what the test for 4th grade writing assessments is like..... I know we do a "OAKS" test here, but then we have the writing assessment part, too. I've just enrolled my son in a Charter Montessori, so I'm kinda playing catch up in the writing department..... I can find spots that I'm suppose to click on, to see a sample, but it's not even a "dead link"... clicking on it goes now where... Anyone have ideas? Samples? He's sick today.... so I can practice with him.... lucky him!! :)
  11. Hello! I am looking for a thorough literature curriculum for my 4th grader. She enjoys reading Dr. Dolittle and other classic children's literature. Has anyone discovered a great resource for literature that involves some discussion/comprehension questions for elementary students? Most of what I've seen is geared for high school students. Thanks!
  12. Brand new to this site, am desperately seeking advice on math curriculum for my son who will be entering 4th grade. Trying to decide between Math Mammoth and Saxon. Thoughts? Anyone used both? Which do you like and why? (by the way, someone tell me what "dd," "df," etc. mean) Thanks!
  13. So here is my dilemma. We have used First Language Lessons since the beginning. We are finishing the level 3 grammar book this week. My daughter is halfway through 4th grade. I would like her to do Analytical Grammar at some point in middle school, then their high school reinforcement books in 9-12 grade. She LOVES grammar and she wants to be an author, so I'd like her to continue it every year. My main question is this: How do First Language Lessons Grammar levels 3 and/or 4 flow into Analytical Grammar (AG)? Is diagramming similar in the two? If we continued to level 4 of FLL, would it
  14. What do you consider important to know by the end of 4th grade? I have a first grader and a 4th grader right now. I especially want to make sure my 4th grader is going to be prepared for the logic years ahead. So I'm asking this mostly to make sure she is going to be on track, but also because with my first grader, I can start from the beginning. :)
  15. This is our first year homeschooling, our 4th grader is not returning to school. We would like to study Latin roots/stems. Not a formal Latin language course, but something which would teach him common Latin roots--would also help with English vocabulary. I've heard of one I think, English from the Roots Up. Can anyone give us thoughts about the most effective/fun? We are going to use Calvert overall curriculum and supplement with some unit studies and have two mornings each week for HS coops. Amy
  16. This is our first year HSing, our son is in 4th grade and has had a couple of years of easy Spanish 1X/wk in public school. Not a lot, but common words etc. Is there a program out there which would help him retain what he has learned in Spanish, and move ahead? We were thinking of something he could do 1-2 times/week. Would like it to be fun and interactive, with pronunciations via sound clips. Amy
  17. Hi, We are planning to start homeschooling our son this fall. We plan to use the 4th grade Calvert curriculum as a "spine" but also work off reading lists on Well Trained Mind and add a couple of unit studies. We like the ability to cover set material but adapt to areas where he is above grade level or has specific interests. He really likes math (although long division, not so much so yet). I was wondering if anyone had thoughts about Calvert math (4th ) vs. Singapore math? I've heard some prefer one over the other, but not sure why. Any other thoughts on math for 4th that would fit
  18. I didn't see handwriting in the schedules posted for 4th grade - are people dropping that or what are you using? Also curious whether you are having them do all (or most) work in cursive now. And what about typing?
  19. http://homeschoolreviews.christianbook.com/easy-grammar-grade-4-wanda-phillips/9780936981437/pd/981437?event=CPOF#curr This will be my first year HSing so I need to start ordering my desired curriculum. My DS who will start 4th grade is going to do Easy Grammar. Upon looking to see what I need, I found a workbook, test book and another kind of book. It appears to be a writing book....someone please correct me if I am wrong. So please tell me what I need to all order. TIA!! Smiles, Jacque :)
  20. Has anyone gone from FLL3 to CLE LA 4? How was the transition? Was your dc prepared? Also, how have you found the poetry sections in CLE? Or has anyone compared FLL4 to CLE LA 4? I'm looking for something a little less teacher intensive for next year, but just as gentle & repetitive. Dd needs that. We'll be using AAS and a progym writing program also so we won't need the spelling or writing. I'm mostly interested in grammar, although I love that it includes the word study and poetry, as I was thinking about dabbling in something like Poetry Primer but I'm thinking I may not need to
  21. I'm actually feeling more settled this year than I have in the past, but I'm still having trouble with LA and history. Does the LA look like enough? We'll finish ZB cursive this year. And I do own the WWE manual, so I'll add in bits of that for dictation, copywork and handwriting. But here's the basic plan: Math: Singapore 6, Zaccaro, and anything else that looks fun Latin: review LfC A in preparation for starting LP1 in 5th Science: McHenry's Elements and Carbon Chemistry LA: MCT's Town Level & FLL 4, AAS 5 (&6), BW (did WWE 1-3 in the past) HISTORY: SOTW 3&4
  22. I'd love to see what others are doing/planning for their 4th graders! Here is what we are planning for the fall for my ds who will turn 9 in August. Math: CLE, continue with 300 level, then onto 400 Spelling: Explode the Code 8 and Megawords Grammar: Growing with Grammar 4 Writing: Writing Tales 1 Handwriting: Queen Pictures in Cursive books Logic: Logic Countdown, and Logic Safari 2 Latin: The Great Latin Adventure book 1 Computers: The Great Logo Adventure History: SOTW 2, and possibly read alouds from TQ AHYS 1 Science: A Child's Geography in
