  1. Hi Everybody: I received an email from Calvert with a survey about their new high school program. They're launching 9th grade in 2014, I believe. Lots of questions on what you'd like to see, what you'd value... textbooks (paper), ebooks, stuff loaded on a tablet, etc. Figured you guys might have better input than I did, as we still have 4 years to go until H.S. https://us1.us.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_aadll9W7jzAkD89
  2. Our co-op is getting a group together to do Stanford EPGY open enrollment -- if they get 8 people they can register as a school and get a discount. These are online programs (no textbook, all online) which apparently allow the students to go at their own pace, you pay for so many months (pretty inexpensive with discount) and then the child can progress through as much as they can. In particular we are looking at these programs for math. These are open beginning at K level. Our DS will be in 5th next year and loves math. Our DD is just going to be starting K. Of course, the thing is that the co-op announced this just after we bought our curriculum package (Calvert) for next year. :) So...I was wondering if anyone has experience with Stanford EPGY and could give some honest feedback, either positive or negative. Thanks! Amy
  3. Our daughter has a vision impairment and is currently in a integrated SN preschool, next year K would be 1/2 day in our school system. We are planning to pull her out next year and homeschool. We just started homeschooling this year, with her brother who is in 4th grade. Have been using Calvert 4 but been very happy supplementing this with online, SOTW, additional reading, and two co-ops. We're in a bind today. There is a 30% sale on Calvert which ends today. We were considering their K program for her, which is pretty cost effective, and supplementing with a few additional materials. BUT... Here's an alternative option, would like to get opinions from folks if this would be a pretty inclusive K year for her. Here's the option: FIAR (a person at our co-op is selling about $100 for 1-3 plus holiday plus cookbook) Hooked on Phonics K Learn to read set (we actually have the complete K-2 set already, bought unused at a library sale for $5, has everything) Handwriting Without Tears (HOT) -- we have wooden set already and comklete letter pages, she is working on these) and then the additional materials are ideas to complete her curriculum: Handwriting -- HWOT K - Letters and Numbers for Me ($11.64) Phonics -- Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons ($12.73) Explode the Code Vol. 1 ($9.05) Math -- Singapore Early Bird Textbook A & B ($24 and $29 respectively) Science -- Building Foundations of Scientific Understanding: A Science Curriculum for K-2 ($22.34) Science Arts ($12.89) ************* (I'd appreciate any alternatives to the above, I got from a great post on web site For Love of Education) *************** Anyway, it looks like if I bought all the above it would come to about $121.65. And then if I bought the FIAR books too the total might come to $200. Is this a fairly complete curriculum? This would be less than 1/2 what the Calvert would come to even on sale. Please help me decide. I like the idea of having things laid out and how to work with the teaching materials with the Calvert. But something is pulling me to go the other way (now that I'd decided last night on the Calvert, am having second thoughts.) HELP! Amy
  4. I'm planning what to do next year for our daughter's K year. Right now she is in an integrated preschool afternoons, but we will probably pull her out next year for K. (Even if we didn't pull yet, the school's K is 1/2 day so we could also school at home.) At a recent library sale I paid $5 for a box of Hooked on Phonics, which I now see was probably a very good buy. It is a deluxe learn to read set for K-2, which appears all unopened and unused materials. Can anyone tell me if this is a pretty complete phonics curriculum, would I need to add anything to it? For K there is a set of 14 HOP books, 10 HOP companion boos, Helper Words and Word Play cards, stickers, a game board, several more sets of cards with what look like rings, and 3 CDs, a Parents guide, stickers, and Yellow Workbook. Any help would be great. We were thinking of going with Calvert K curriculum but seeing everything we have here makes me thing perhaps we could just use these as the phonics component and add to it. But please help -- don't really know WHAT to do with all of this. Thanks! Oh and need help ASAP as there is a 30% sale on today for Calvert and I need to decide right away. Amy
  5. We are looking at different options for kindergarten, and wondered what others use and are most happy with. Has anyone used Calvert for K? We are using for our 4th grader and are happy with it, it is structured but we are "loose" in our approach and supplement lots. The structure is really good b/c it pulls us back in and we like the SOTW used at his grade. We've heard mixed reviews about youngest years however and are not so sure it is necessary at the lower levels. Also wondering about Core Curriculum, if anyone is using this and how this works. I didn't even know this was a curriculum until a day or two ago I just thought it was a series of books (What your 2nd grader needs to know, etc.). Anyone using a classical approach, and how would you implement this at K? What about FIAR? I realize these are just several, we only just started looking at curricula. Our daughter really is hands on, super active and likes to do things. Very bright but not a sit still kind of girl (if you know what I mean!). We are really open to lots of different ideas. If you give me some suggestions we also have the Rainbow catalog and I can get more info there -- I just need a push to go in the right direction. Amy
  6. We are just starting HSing and our son is in 4th grade. We are doing Calvert. I'd like to give DS more practice in multiplying two digit numbers and in long division. They covered this last year in 3rd PS, but his attention/working memory issues make it difficult for him to remember the steps. He is otherwise very, very bright and has placed high in math tests (before long division!). I was thinking practice would help. Have seen a lot on Khan Academy, but I was not clear when I got there how to get started with a 4th grader. What are videos and what are practice areas, and how to you decide where to start? Any help would be much appreciated. Amy
  7. Our son is in 4th grade and we are just starting to HS this year. We are doing Calvert as a spine but always planned to supplement with additional readings and unit studies. We did get the Child's History of the World (CHOW) for the history text. I like the readability of the book and the ability to put history in context. (I have an undergrad degree in history, and always felt more people would like history if it weren't presented in such a dry manner.) On looking at the online copy, though, I thought that it was so simple that supplementing might be advisable even for 4th. Many have mentioned SOTW and I was wondering about supplementing parts of CHOW with readings from SOTW. Any thoughts/suggestions? Amy
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. ...what do you supplement with? We are HSing our 9 yo son for the first time and are planning to use Calvert 4. But we'd also like to supplement and personalize the curriculum. I've seen a couple of posts where people have mentioned using Calvert but also using (if I'm sorting out the acronyms right): --Writing with Ease --First Language Lessons --SWB MCT materials for poetry Does that mean you are using these in addition to the regular curriculum? Also, what do you feel these give you that is not in the Calvert? I want to add that I read SWB's Well Trained Mind and love the ideas, and want to incorporate these into our son's curriculum. I just think that the Calvert provides a great structured curriculum this year rather than trying to pick and choose. Thank you all so, so much for all of the wonderful suggestions and thoughts so far. It has been so helpful. Amy
  11. 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 for us? Amy
  12. http://www.columbiavirtualacademy.org/ This is for WA state. It's meant to work in partnership with alternative education styles. It is K-12. There is no fee, it is free. They also provide some materials, in this case, Calvert based. You can use it part time also.
  13. Hi, I was wondering if anyone has Calvert Reading Work Book I guess from 2003. It has 02RWP0503$0503 on the back of the book and under the title page where it says "Reading Work Book Pages. My copy is missing a few pages and I need to know the title of those pages. Page 62 Page 63 Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  14. What did you use? What did you like and or dislike. Any other info. Thanks.
