  1. We are new to homeschooling. I have 2 daughters 4th grader & 5th grader. Looking for curriculum reviews/advice. They are fast learners. 5th grader very quick self teaching/learner. We looked at Abeka and like the scope of it but girls hate videos of classroom setting and time when teacher is just walking around. So we have also looked at ACE paces but read old reviews saying it was "dumbed down" and slower paced and not as in depth as Abeka. But also had a friend say she loved it for her daughter (9th & 10th grade) who ended up going back to public school and ended up on honor roll last 2 years of high school. I also like the look of CLE and have read math is spiral which we are ok with and it might be advanced compared to public schools. Lastly, we looked at BJU and if we had to use a video program the girls prefer it as it is just the teacher. However, some of the videos look a little immature for 5th grade ( puppet in English 5 videos). With this being said, I would greatly appreciate any advice and love to hear any experience with the above mentioned curriculums. I know some either love a curriculum or hate it. Either way I would like to hear what you have to say.
  2. I need success stories from those who have used CLE LA for elementary and middle school. Do you feel the grammar was covered well? Do you feel they missed something by doing CLE? Did they test well?
  3. Does anyone know whether CLE Civics & World Geography (listed as 9th grade course) and/or World History (listed as 10th grade course) are anything like their 8th grade American History course/text called Changing Frontiers? We're using the latter now and it is absolutely perfect for DD13 for 7th grade. I'd love to continue with one of the former courses for her 8th grade year if they are written in the same spirit. We're secular homeschoolers, fwiw. It looks like the 9th/10th courses have no textbook, which would be a big difference from the 8th grade course. Anyone know how secular-friendly they would be? How thorough and academically rigorous, compared to Changing Frontiers?
  4. Hi. I'm doing some research for next school year. My DD6 will be in second grade next year. For first grade language arts we used FLL1, WWE1, Zaner-Bloser Handwriting 1 & then had a really hard time with spelling. A Reason for Spelling was too easy and had too much busywork. We tried K-12 reader and the words were the right level but it had no guidance. I am a natural speller and don't really know any spelling rules, but I would like her to know them. I need hand holding in this regard. We're trying out AAS, which I know will be too easy but may be what I'm looking for as far as spelling. Anyway, I'm finding that having all these pieces for Language Arts, just isn't working for us. We manage to do FLL but are way behind in WWE because we just don't get to it each day. We're doing ok with handwriting. It all feels disjointed. I don't think it's the curriculum... it's definitely us (or maybe, just me). What I'm thinking of doing is CLE LA 2 next year which would cover just about everything. I feel like writing could be covered through the content areas fairly well. I've noticed, however, that many people skip the spelling but I am not finding any clear reason as to why. I've looked over the samples and the words look appropriate for grade level and I see that they include spelling rules. Am I missing some glaring issue? I'm not opposed to doing a different spelling program, but I want to understand why I would need to first. Anyone with experience want to explain? Thanks.
  5. I know a lot of people love R&S LA - we've used CLE LA and my children have really enjoyed it. However, I'm having curriculum indecision. I'm wondering if it would be worth trying R&S or if we should just stick with what I know, firsthand, works for my children.
  6. I tried this question on the high school board but only got crickets. CLE has an accredited option that interests me for my high school students. However, the length of the lessons as well as the teacher involvement cause me to questions if it will work for us. My hands will be very full this fall and little time will be available for me to get into intensive teacher instruction for my high school students. We are currently using CLE math for 1, 3, & 6th grades, so the math lesson duration is somewhat familiar to me. Any input you may have about the other subjects and the coaching responsibility times for teaching lessons would be very helpful (especially if you are using CLE for your middle school or high school student.) Thanks!
  7. Here's my dilemma: 9th grader starting Algebra 1 and I am trying to decide b/w Saxon Algebra 1 and CLE Algebra 1. I realize CLE goes no further and there is no geometry. The draw is that CLE workbook style looks appealing and the reviews all good and much cheaper than Saxon. So what's the problem you say? Well the attraction of Saxon is that I am looking to go to Saxon for Algebra 2 and beyond. I heard that the geometry credit doesn't start until Algebra 2 and on into Advanced Math. So I am thinking to get his geometry credit it won't matter if we do another vendor for Algebra 1...right???? Or am I wrong about the geometry? Since we are looking to do last 3 yrs of math with Saxon should we just start with Saxon instead of CLE and switching? But all the Saxon components are so much more expensive than CLE. Bottom line: I want to get the geometry credit that is woven into the Saxon Algebras and I want to make sure doing CLE for Algebra 1 instead of Saxon for Algebra 1 won't confuse him. Would it be better to stay with the same vendor/style for continuity and ease of learning in the long run? If it is worth the extra money for all of that I will pay it. Thx for any advice!
  8. Mostly, I'd love to hear from others who have used Abeka for Language for Grades 4 and up. I used it our first year of homeschooling for 3rd grade, along with FLL. That went well. Currently using CLE for my 3rd graders and have mostly used something else for my 6th grader this year. I'm considering Abeka for 7th, or possibly CLE. But I think I would have to start in the 600s with CLE for my DD. For her sake (having younger siblings), I would prefer something on "grade level." Workbooks for language work pretty well for us, I don't mind Christian content, and plan to supplement for composition. I know Abeka doesn't get a lot of mention here, but I know some have used it for grammar, so I'd love to hear your thoughts!
  9. My oldest, currently in 6th grade, is working through CLE Math 6. Doing well with it, mostly independently. I was thinking she would switch to Saxon (that's our preference) after this year, but now I'm having 2nd thoughts. I think my biggest hesitation is that I know she wouldn't be crazy about having to re-write the problems. I read another thread on here where one person said it's maybe a good idea to start Saxon 8/7 before jumping into Algebra (in other words, don't jump into Saxon in your Algebra year). That way they're familiar with how Saxon works before getting into the harder stuff. On the other hand, if I keep her in workbook format, it looks like CLE does Pre-Algebra in two years? I really would hate to cram that all into one. I'm really even unsure about what progression math "should" take. What is the general progression of Saxon (in what grades) through high school? She gets math pretty easily so far. Anyway, I'd love to hear what others have done. :)
  10. Ok so far we have been doing Abeka workbooks for my 3rd and 1st grader. I do not use the teacher manuals or the homeschool lesson plans I teach the new material and a few things that I see coming up on the next few lessons at the beginning and my boys do the rest of the page by themselves. Its working really well and my 1st grader is doing better than I ever imagined, he gets math and is progressing well! My 3rd grader has been a bit of a struggle but I finally realized he wasn't ready for the 3rd grade book because he had not learned any multiplication and Abeka was moving to fast in that area (they teach it in the middle of 2nd grade) so we did multiplication for a few weeks and he has been able to continue with Abeka and is now doing great! He has confidence where before he felt dumb, I can see his confidence coming back and he is liking math more than before. For my 5th grader we have tried a few things and now we are doing Mastering essential math skills, it is going well and overall I am pleased with what he is learning. I am a bit concerned that it may not be enough so I have been having him do 10 problems in our old saxon 76 book for review of things he's already learned. So onto my problem of sorts. I am happy with what we are doing and the kids are finally at a place where we are good.... But I know the Abeka 4th grade book gets a bad Rep and I do not want to stick with it after 3rd grade. Which brings me to considering Math Mammoth. I like what I've seen on all the sample pages and the free books I've downloaded. I can grasp what's being taught so it must explain fairly well. I love how transparent Maria is its very refreshing after abeka and feeling like they only want my money. My biggest question is that its a mastery based curriculum and we've mostly done spiral which is working beautifully so do I want to change that? I like that MM is grades 1-7 and the price is just what I need(especially since its on sale for 1-7 for $105 right now!!). Cost is a consideration I don't have much money to buy stuff but math is one area I do buy curriculum for, though I really can't spend much. I've looked at CLE (christian light education), which would be a natural choice after Abeka but its on the expensive side for me, especially since its not reusable, I know its touted as being cheap but when you are buying for 3 it adds up. Its also longer lessons than we are used to, right now my boys do 2 pages front and back and CLE is 2-4 ( I can't remember). Or is it good enough to somehow work out the price by cutting something else (I don't know what but I'm sure theres something, lol!)? In a nutshell I am happy with where we are right now but we will need to change it up next year for my 3rd and 5th since I do not want to continue what we are doing after that. Do I switch to MM or CLE? My dream math would be spiral based or plenty of review, inexpensive, reusable or printable, self teaching or at least have everything listed in a worktext where I don't need teachers manuals. Does that even exist, lol!? *cross posted*
