  1. I am looking for wisdom. I have been homeschooling my son since Dec. he is 9 years old and delayed a bit. Previously he was in a school that has 9 children. We pick the curriculum that is being used for each child, it is like being in an old school house setting. Hi, I posted this on another board and they all told me that I should post over here. They were very helpful but they felt like you all could help me more. Below is the first post and the second section is my response to some of the questions. Thank so much. Currently I am using Saxon Math 3, First Language Lessons, Writing with Ease, Explode the Code, Handwriting without Tears , All About Spelling. I have also been using A Beka Language 2 and Letters and Sounds. As you can see it is alot, I feel like it is too much. I guess the reason I continued using the A Beka was because I thought it has a good base for phonics. I love Writing with Ease and First Language Lessons but I did not know if I should keep going with this list of work. I am tied up in knots when I think of what to do. I want what is best for him, I need wisdom and wish someone could tell me what they think would be the best scenario. I know that is hard as I am the one that knows my child but was not sure if anyone else is in a similar situation. As you can see I am not great at getting my words out on paper but hopefully someone out here has some wisdom. Thank you It might help narrow down: How is his reading? Reading is very good, he is currently reading a 4th grade book with A Beka. How is his handwriting? Handwriting is getting better. We just finished book 2 and are now starting book three which is cursive but not your normal cursive that is very loopy. This is much more like the Australian cursive. Can he remember how to form his letters? Yes he can remember to form his letters. Is he beginning to write his letters without thinking about how it should be written? I believe so. When he writes a sentence for a worksheet in Abeka he may ask me how to spell a couple words but he does pretty well. How is his spelling? His spelling is doing pretty well as long as he gets plenty of time to go over them each day. What level of AAS are you using? We are on level 3 of All About Spelling How is he doing with the dictation section? Dictation for Writing with Ease has been very difficult. I was doing it with him up to about week 15 or so but felt like we were not getting anywhere. I would have to repeat many times and I felt like it was frustrating for him to have to spend so much time on writing one or two sentences. It does look like you have a lot of repetition and overlap in language arts that could be pared down, does he seem to be learning with any of these curriculum? He does seem to be learing, he loves the poems in First Language Lessons and does a good job remembering what a noun is , verb is etc. Are you happy with Saxon for math? Saxon Math has been okay. He does well with the first sheet for the most part but the drill sheets can be overwhelming, once he gets started he can get going with it and is able to answer questions. We use a table with the numbers 0 through 20 and this has helped alot. Then he can put his finger on 5 and count up 4 and get to 9 etc. Does he seem to be learning and retaining from this program? I think he retains much but when it comes to the fractions and things it is harder. I think that since they do not spend much time on it, it is hard to learn it. As far as OT they work on many things, reflexes, helping him process, for instance talking about how to make and obstacle course, then doing the obstacle course and at the end talking through what he did. they do excercises as well and work on handwriting. We live overseas as we are full time volunteers for a charity. So we have the OT come to us which has been a huge blessing to our family. We used to go once a week for 45 minutes and that was terrible as it takes quite a bit of time getting from point a to b. So much faster where we lived in the US. Thank you all for your help. I will definitely post this in the other group as well. Blessings.

  3. My 7yod has previously been diagnosed with Apraxia and received speech therapy for about a year and a half. That along with intense and repetitive work here at home, as well as the fact that we caught it early, helped her immensely with her speech. While she still has some glitches that mostly only those closest to her can recognize, she stills struggles in the language arts, and I think maybe always will. I'm wondering how to proceed from where we are now. In reading, she's just now able to blend some consonant digraphs, and this is after YEARS of working on it and using a multitude of different resources. She does occasionally read some words bigger than 4 letters, but I think she's memorizing them in context of the story. Well, I think even the 4-letter words she knows have been somewhat memorized. She does okay with handwriting -- needs improvement, but does okay -- except that she STILL writes her capital N's upside down despite constantly reminding and showing her how to do it properly. She also *occasionally* forgets a letter of the alphabet. This is typical for her... knowing, and then forgetting. (This is also one of the "glitches" in her speech. For example, she says trash can like "cash tan". She just gets it backwards. This is one of the distinctives of Apraxia.) She learns well visually. The summer she watched Leap Frog videos all summer was when she finally learned her letter sounds after more than 2 years of speech therapy (focusing on one letter sound at a time), phonics flashcards, having her sit in on her sister's phonics lessons, hands-on activities, etc. Before she started therapy and couldn't communicate with us verbally, the Signing Time videos really "saved" us. She caught on to those quickly. I'm thinking that First Language Lessons would be a great choice for grammar. She's been listening to the poems on CD for several years because I'd used FLL with my middle dd, too, so she already knows the poems. For phonics, what I'm *thinking* might work well (but I don't want to spend anymore money without insight from others) are: -- BJU (word pattern approach, and uses "people" to help identify differences in letter sounds) -- Reading Made Easy (hands-on component is helpful, and perhaps using the white board for writing exercises instead of paper would help on the visual aspect) -- LLATL? maybe? I've noticed she seems to "get" word patterns (rhyming) better than the word ladder approach (i.e., MFW, CLP's Adventures in Phonics, Abeka). But maybe a mix of both approaches is better? Or am I confusing her by mixing it up? What else? She's definitely ready to move on. She WANTS to be doing more, but can't without help. Consequently, we have a lot of frustrations between us. I try to help her, but she thinks she can do it by herself. But she can't (usually). She does well in math; no problems there.
