  1. Hi! I'm looking for suggestions. My DD is a rising 4th grader, but asynchronous in language arts (not mathematics). She enjoys classical education Well-Trained Mind style for its language-centered focus. Looking forward to middle school and then high school, I'm wondering how I customize a middle/high school pathway that would showcase her language arts talents? If she was talented in mathematics, it would be easier, I think -- algebra earlier, and then follow some variation on the typical sequence. But I'm having trouble thinking about something similar for language arts. It's very clear that a student has completed Calculus, for example, but how does one show an equivalent level of accomplishment in the language arts? What goals am I aiming for here? I feel as though the destination is out of focus, and if I don't know at least what continent to paddle towards, we'll end up in the South Pacific Garbage Patch. :) MCT just doesn't speak to me, but I'll give it another look. Suggestions? (cross-posted)
  2. I can't remember if I have seen this here before. Hat tip to Bostonian (who is a board member me thinks) who linked it on another e-forum. I know there is often a worry about "running out of math" with a younger math-motivated kid. This blog post is one example of how much more math there is out there. Links in the post lead to resources of study, including free ones. I haven't checked them all. Please click with care.
  3. Hi all: Sorry for the delay. I compiled the resource list, as promised. I provided non-referral Amazon links when appropriate. Apologies if this is not appropriate. Since I have a toddler daughter (18 mo. atm), I add most to the Toddler section and not much about the rest. What my wife and I did was to keep her interest up in reading and math using books and toys. Hence the list. Kindly add to the list and I will add them. The list might be a bit disorganised, please make suggestions too. Some of the items came from others, most notably from quark. Thanks.

However, I'm wondering if there's any resource list (book, website, media, etc.) that help accelerated learner in anyway. Something like those posted in the Bilingual Forum. Maybe I can help with the organization. Per subject or per age group, etc. Plus, if some tips / tricks can be thrown in, they would be handy. Thanks.
  4. I'm new to The Well-Trained Mind and so far I'm in love with this platform. I will probably start homeschooling my 7 year old , a 4th grader at a home school "school". I 'm looking for a curriculum that will challenge her and ideas to help make her learning experience superior to what she would receive in public school and comparable to the best private school education? Can anyone recommend materials and curriculum? P.S. My gifted 3 year old will probably join us.
  5. I am wondering what to do after saxon math k. This is our first year of HSing and we flew through the Saxon math k program. I like Saxon in that it comes highly recommended and it is what we will use in the upper math grades. But we found it not challenging, interesting, or fun at the K level. My son was very goofy and not focused during math time, I think because the lessons were not on his level. I do not want to encounter the same thing if we move onto the next level of saxon. Do the saxon lessons get more interesting or fun or faster paced?(in reviewing their online preview it seems to be layed out the same) Can you recommend another program that will fit with a student (and mom) who loves math and just gets it that has a good core of math concepts..Thank you
  6. She has bombed the placement tests for SM all the way back to 4A. Is it too late to start SM. Was thinking about using Saxon 6/5 or 7/6 instead. Anyone have a better recommendation?
  7. Ok, so I think I've only posted here once before, so I'm even intimidated doing that We just got our end of the year test scores back and ds tested normal as a second grader. Nothing to stress over other than we had some weak areas, but I already knew what his weaknesses were. DD on the other hand... well... her over all grade equivalent was 10.9,, and she had 3 areas that she tested equivalent to what a high school graduate would test if they should take the same 5th grade test! Her scores have been high before... in fact I had to remind myself that every child is different when I saw my ds 2nd grade test scores. (trying NOT to compare for sure!) Idk why but before getting these results I was very relaxed in my homeschool thinking, and felt really good about it. Now, I'm like omg I have to challenge her more!! I already knew I needed to challenge her, b/c she was getting bored last year ... She did her own independent study. I rarely looked at her work. I didn't need to. She took responsibility and went with it. I had to spend a lot of foundational time with Blake b/c he was struggling a bit. This just puts more pressure on me!! I have so many questions for all of you with accelerated learners... so please don't get annoyed with me Here's a few to start with: 1) I've already purchased a 7th grade Science book for her. Of which she has told me it is easy . She knew this because she already started it!! So... how do I challenge her with that w/o adding "busy" work? I'm a CM fan, and really agree with her that twaddle won't solve anything, but I'm not educated enough in CM to know what she would do with Cass. 2) I am NOT telling her what her scores were. I don't want to add pressure to her or make her feel like she can slack. We just told both she and ds that they did great and are moving on in their studies. To show you how much she does not care... My 2nd grader smiled big and was so proud of himself, Cassie just said, "ok" and went about her business. So, right not to tell her how high she scored, yes? 3) She reads books like she's drinking a glass of water! I kid you not she finishes HUGE chapter books in just a day or two and can sit and have an intellectual discussion about them! My concern is that she is choosing books that are too easy for her. What would you do? TIA for your help!!
