  1. Hello All! We are homeschooling for this first time this year. My oldest is in Kindergarten so I have taken the last few months to wing it. I thought unschooling would be a good fit for us since I work from home and we are heavily involved in other activities but what I am discovering is 1) I am not a plan-aheader nor a good record keeper despite my good intentions and 2) I keep myself up at night wondering if what I am teaching is on target with what my oldest should be learning. After reading Cathy Duffy's book, I think I am starting to get interested in KONOS and I didn't know if anyone has any experience with that. I love the idea of being able to teach multiple kids with different ages. I understand that as a whole, you will still need to pick a math which we are leaning towards Math-U-See in addition to reading and spelling programs which we are leaning towards All About Reading and All About Spelling respectively. Any advice or insights anyone has would be greatly appreciated! We don't really know anyone that homeschools so we feel a bit out of our element :) THANKS!!!!
  2. So I am a huge fan of AAR but this last year I've not been able to get as many lessons done with my son and he's "behind" a tad bit. We are just 4 short days from finishing AAR 1 and my son already reads way beyond that level. I was going to go ahead and buy AAR 2 but somehow I got onto LOE's website yesterday and I've got to say I'm completely intrigued with it for a few reasons. 1) I can complete LOE much quicker than I can finish the next 3 levels of AAR. My son has JUST turned 9 and has no learning disabilities. I just need to get a ful phonics program done with him and I want a primarily OG based program. 2) I've not found grammar that I'm fond of yet. LOE includes it along with vocabulary and composition. 3) Overall the cost would be much less to do LOE instead of AAR. More money up front but around $250 cheaper than doing all 4 levels of AAR and AAS. For those of you that have used AAR/AAS (we would start AAS as soon as we finish AAR 1) and LOE can you compare where the major differences are and what I would need to consider with a switch? Also please share how long your lessons take with LOE. I would be using a 16 week schedule as a frame work and of course taking longer on a lesson if needed. My son will technically be in 4th grade next year and it would be wonderful to be able to start him out at his right reading and spelling level hence the consideration to go to LOE vs. AAR. I was also going to use EIW with my son for writing but I'm wondering now if I would even need it with LOE's composition portions. Overall it seems that all my language arts would be covered for around a year in the price of LOE. Give me your thoughts and experiences please wonderful ladies (and a few gentlemen). Thank you!
  3. I would love to hear from some of you who are using AAR 1 with your kids. I am thinking about getting it for my DD who will be in K this year. We've started with OPGTTR, but it's a bit dry and I think she would really enjoy something more entertaining for reading. I am having a hard time getting her interested! I bought the pre level at the beginning of this year because I thought it would really be fun, but honestly we have had a hard time sticking with it. She enjoys the games, but I didn't feel like the letter learning part was through enough, she wasn't retaining it when we only spent 1 day on a letter, so I stopped and we've just been doing our own thing. She now knows the bulk of her letters (upper and lower) and their sounds, but not some of the other skills like clapping out syllables. Would AAR1 be a good place to start? I feel like going back now and redoing the pre level would be to much and take to long, she's ready to start reading NOW! However; I don't want to get her frustrated by starting something that would be to advanced for her. Any experiences, suggestions to share? Thanks!!
  4. Dd just finished Aar1. Budget is tight(so buying aar2 might be difficult), and a friend has offered Sing, Spell, Read and Write for me to borrow. I'm having trouble finding the scope and sequence of SSRW, so I don't know which, if any, level would nicely follow AAR1. I'd also considered Explode the Code, but someone told me ETC doesn't teach phonics rules. Based on those samples, dd is ready for ETC 3 or so. Help anyone?
  5. I have purchased AAR 1 for our 1st grade ds, but I'd like to add handwriting. I prefer a modern or italic form, but I'm open to traditional. Is there one that complements it well?
  6. Which one would you use? I'm considering these 3 options. Our 8 yr old just finishing 2nd grade just diagnosed with Dyslexia ... reads at about end of 1st grade level according to the psychologist we saw.
  7. Okay, give it to me. Give me the uglies, the regrets and whatever else you can tell me before I push the ORDER button. More info: We will use it afterschooling for ADHD, dyslexia, speech disorder child reading on K level but he's in first grade. Just diagnosed after extensive testing and just started meds for ADHD. He will do resource classes at school but I want something to do with him at home. _____ I've extensively looked at the samples, ds7 has read from the lessons and readers and asked for his sticker! Warn me now... :001_huh:
  8. How necessary are the readers in All About Reading Level 1? I found a great deal on the Teacher's Guide and Student Pack (from someone that bought them but never used them), but she doesn't have the readers. Can I substitute readers from the library (Bob books maybe?) or use Abeka Readers I already have or would it be really helpful to have the ones that go with AAR? Is it difficult to sub with other books, since you would need to find stories that match up with which letters have been learned? I've spent most of my curriculum budget already but couldn't pass up the deal.
  9. Just got my shipping notice for AAR Level 1! Woot!
  10. Hi, I know AAR 1 is just now out, I have looked at the samples and really like what I see. My son just turned 6 and is reading some simple words, really we are just starting w/ the I See Sam readers. I like them but feel I lack some structure. I really want more structure, especially when teaching reading. The AAR 1 looks great, I have decided not to do AAS 1 w/ him because he is writing a lot yet, he would need to move through it quickly for reading. I feel he would be ready for AAR 2 though before it is completed. So...not sure what direction I should go w/ him? Should I work through AAR 1? Not sure what I would do AFTER AAR 1...I would not want to go back and work through AAS 1 I want to keep moving forward w/ the reading. Thanks! Kim
  11. Hi, I am looking for a phonics/pre-reading curriculum for my ds 4.5 for the fall. Can someone compare the Phonics Pathways to All About Reading? Also when do you move up to the Reading Pathways and All About Spelling? Thanks from a newbie :-) Marisa
  12. I have never done any type of curriculum review before, this is my first shot at it. Also, as a disclaimer, I am in no way benefiting from a program that I guess they have for people, I am just a customer. I use and love AAS with my 8 year old ds. It was a great success, I am about 90% happy with it. We sat down and started off by singing the alphabet song while dd (4in less than a month) pointed to all of the letters. Then we read the poem for the letter A. She liked it, we pointed out A's. The illustrations are great. After that we moved onto our craft sheet. Here is my first negative niggle. On the back of the craft sheet are the instructions and the list of supplies. It suggest (optional, but would be cute) googly eyes. I didn't have any googly eyes or glue on hand. So we just colored. I had read through the teacher manual the night before and there was not any mention of supplies in the manual. I think it would be nice to at least list it in the teachers manual. What would be even nicer would be a page before the lesson plans started listing all the craft items by lesson. As it is, I will need to go page by page through the craft book. Not a BIG deal, but could be better. We then got out the play dough and made a letter A out of it, fun. Next, she got introduced to Ziggy the zebra. I went through the suggested introduction and then we played a game together. She was laughing, hugging Ziggy and so happy. For anyone thinking about not doing the puppet part of the program...DON"T, it was great! My daughter is so excited to be learning how to read with Ziggy. Then we read a story together and she had Ziggy on her hand for that one. So, by and large, I am thrilled that we took the plunge and got AAR. If people want I will post again when we have done a few more lessons. Nicole
  13. on the website. Just in case it hadn't been mentioned yet. :001_smile:
  14. Does anyone know when this is coming out? I've tried searching for it and have not come up with anything. TIA!
