  1. Hi all !! It is our first year homeschooling and I am very excited. We have a son who is 9 and will be going into the fourth grade. He was with Connections Academy and it was awful. I purchased some things today and I would love to hear opinions if it is enough. The only purchase I am really dissatisfied with was Horizons Math 4. I don't think the TM is going to be enough for what we need. I was on the fence for Saxon 5/4 so I guess I will exchange for it. Anyway, I bought First Language Lessons level 4 ,Wordly Wise 3000,Easy Grammar,and Apologia Zoology 2 with notebook. So I lack hist
  2. Hi! I'd appreciate your suggestions - I'm looking for a math program for prealgebra and above that explains conceptually why things are done, not one that focuses mainly on the methods used to solve problems. We've used Saxon math all along with our three kids and supplemented with Singapore math. Last year our middle daughter (6th grade) hit a wall in Saxon 8/7. She started to consistently get about 22 out of 30 on the problem sets. I figured out that the problem is that she doesn't clearly remember the underlying concepts and can't tell you what happens in a complicated problem. Some
  3. Most of the classical private schools in my area use Saxon...usually Saxon k in PreK, Saxon 1 in kindergarten and so forth. CC, Veritas, Good Books and most of the other programs (classical mostly) highly recommend Saxon math. When I look at this program, I think of it as a "slow death." I like scripted and some might think, boring programs (TYCR 100 ez lessons, OPGTR ...love it) so I wonder if I just misunderstand this program. I just do not want my preK daughter doing an hour of math....or even when she is in kindergarten. 1. Am I wrong? 2. Do so many homeschool and private sch
  4. The recent 5th grade and 7th grade threads made me want to do a 6th grade one. :D For 2011-2012, my 6th grader will be doing: Math: Singapore 4B/5A; Life of Fred Fractions; Life of Fred Decimals/Percents Writing: Finish Remedia Outlining book, then WWE 4 (I think--need to give placement test) Grammar: Grammar Town and Practice Town Latin: Latin for Children B/C (carryover from last year) Logic: Logic Countdown (carryover from last year), then Logic Liftoff Literature: Ancients reading list drawn from SOTW 1 activity guide and whatever else I come up with from the library; oral d
  5. Here's what I've chosen for our core curriculum for this year. Growing with Grammar 6 Winning with Writing 6 Wordly Wise 3000 6 Math U See Zeta Elemental Science Biology for the Logic stage (since that's the only logic stage available) History Odyssey Middle Ages level 2 Visual Link Spanish supplemented by Power-Glide which I found really cheap on Amazon The girls will be doing most of their work independently as I work full time. When I get home in the evening I can help with anything they've had trouble with and do experiments. Math U See is the only choice I'm car
  6. Is there a listing of curriculum abbreviations? I've learned many of them, but it is still frustrating. :confused:
  7. :001_unsure: Hi There, I am seeking the advice for a problem that I seem to get myself into at various times in my HS Journey. I have 13 yo dd adn an 8 yo dd. I have run into a problem with my third grader. Here's the deal.... I switched back to Sonlight this year after using an elclectic approach with the WTM format last year . I was hoping to save time with the pre planned curriculum and we have always loved the lit selections however, I am running into a few problems and I am now regretting my choice (why do I always do this?). My older daughter is not getting enough lit. anaylsis
  8. Really hitting a wall with my seven year-old and narrations. We're using TWTM and it seems like I'm spending way too much time walking her through the comprehension questions (which I make up), then the aloud narration, and finally the dreaded putting it on paper. We're doing this for history, science, and literature (correlating with history), so it's a good chunk of time as it is, and she's really resisting the whole format, despite how bright she is--I think it's a combination of her perfectionism (worried about not getting it right) and her age/temperament which tends toward the literal,
  9. I've been teaching grammar, reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary and punctuation informally from grades 1-4 just using the books we read. We're in good shape, but for fifth grade the little guy has asked to do something more formal. Would you share your favorite language curriculum for fifth grade? There are so many out there that I end up like a deer in headlights. Thanks!
  10. I'm a rookie homeschooler, with just one semester under my belt, but I've been a student in the secular and Christian realms all my life. I was attracted to classical education, and The Well Trained Mind in particular because of its academic/literary focus with a Christian worldview, albeit a subtle one, much like the book of Esther in the Bible which never mentions God's name, but his presence is evident throughout. We are taking the summer off, but it has been my intention to stick with WTM when we start up again in 6-8 weeks. So much of the style and substance resonates with me, and o
  11. I'm looking for advice on choosing a "classical" Logic curriculum for my dd's (14 & 15). I've sort of boiled it down to two choices (though I'm open to other suggestions). It needs to be something that doesn't require any previous instruction to teach. Traditional Logic I - An Introduction to Formal Logic by Martin Cothran. 2000 Edition Logic by Gordon H. Clark. 2004 Edition I've searched this site and looked elsewhere online for reviews but they're somewhat mixed on all curricula I searched for. Any favorites out there? Any other suggestions?
  12. Hi there...I posted an intro on the general board, so just jumping in here. I'm sorta new, but not to homeschooling...like that makes any sense at all, lol! I pulled my dd, 'Diva' from school half way through grade 3. For the year following, we were 'blended' meaning that we did almost everything according to the provincial standards, followed the same text books, blah blah blah. Ick. This year, we're still 'blended' but a much happier blend, in that we're not using any provincial materials, but hitting the same outcomes for math, art, phys ed, health, and music. We have the abilit
  13. I am currently planning for our 2nd year of homeschooling in the fall. My dd will be in 8th grade, and she always did well in public school (good grades). I'm trying to figure out what to do for her LA curriculum, and finding it quite overwhelming to choose between something that covers it all or a lot of separate programs. Time is an issue for me, as I also have a dd who will be 3 next fall. My dd 13 writes well, basically, but she doesn't really seem to know the terms used in grammar. Just today she asked me again what a pronoun is! Is "grammar" in and of itself a big deal if she can c
  14. I am going to be homeschooling our daughter. She is currently 4 years old (December birthday) and we are excited about this new experience. She is eager to read. She's been writing for a year now - she spends all day asking me "how do you spell" and as I spell words to her, she writes them. It's a lot of fun! I will be attending a homeschool conference in a few weeks and am trying to decide on curriculum for next year. I was considering Sonlight, but have some concerns. The majority of the cost for Sonlight is reading books - books that we can easily get from the library. We spen
