  1. Hey. So our group is on SOTW Vol. 4. 1. Can I get the audio that reads WITH the books (like highlights the words)? Where can I get the pictures like on YouTube with Jim Weiss and showing the maps and pics as he reads. I have an Android and Amazon Fire. Can I get Alexa to read it to us ? What are my good audio book options ? 2. I am supposed to teach Vol. 4 to 2nd grade. Any resources for this? Any good hands on activities or picture books other than the Acitivity Book ? I realize it's really difficult topics. TIA. Genet

  4. I need some ideas for grammar for this next year. We've been using FLL all the way through (DS levels 1-3; DD levels 1-4 and then Rod and Staff this year), and I'm having to acknowledge to myself that I just don't think it's working. Both kids can rattle off definitions and lists like nobody's business, but ask them to actually identify parts of speech in a sentence when we HAVEN'T just spent five minutes talking about that part of speech, and they look at me like deer in headlights. My son can easily tell you that "A sentence is a group of words that expresses a complete thought" and "All sentences begin with a capital letter and end with a punctuation mark" - and yet he routinely begins his sentences with lowercase letters. 🙄 The memorization just isn't making its way into practical use. I'm looking for something that, ideally, would cover grammar in a thorough but incremental manner, in about 15 minutes a day, with CLEAR explanations, plenty of practice, and in a format/presentation that's attractive and interesting to my kids. DD11 is an artistic, dreamy soul who'd love to spend her whole day drawing and listening to audiobooks; DS9 is a budding engineer who's preoccupied with Legos, pistons, gears, and the like. I don't even know where to begin looking. We've never used (nor really looked at) anything but FLL, and I've kind of been waiting to see if all the memorization would begin to pay off in practical application...but I'm just not seeing it, and I think I'm facing the fact that we need to try something else. Thank you so much for your help!!! Eta: I realized I accidentally posted this in the wrong topic...and as I can't find a way to delete it, please pardon me! 😳 I'll go post in the K-8 curriculum board where it was meant to be.

    Excellent condition. Price includes shipping cost. The MCT grammar series cannot be beat. We have loved this curriculum and the only reason I am not selling the full set is because my child doesn’t want to part with all the books. (Other books in the collection include Paragraph Town, Caesar’s English, Practise Town.)

  7. My daughter wants to read Moby Dick, and I'm wondering if the content is appropriate for a 9 year old? I've never actually read it myself, so I have no clue. She loves to read, and I'm not worried about the "level" as much as the content.
  8. Have you ever heard of the Life of Fred books?!? They are an INCREDIBLE resource for homeschool math books! My kids LOVE them. I've been trying to find the BEST prices for months and believe I finally found it! You can buy the complete set (10 books - that are durable and have hard covers) for only $139 + FREE SHIPPING! http://www.educents.com/life-of-fred-elementary-math-sale.html If your kids are older, I believe the same site offers intermediate series, high school series, college series and more. I need to look into that next but for now I'm getting my younger children excited about math :-) Anyway, I hope you find these little gems useful for your family too. God bless!
  9. If you had to pick one or the other which would you use for a 7 y/o with basic phonics skills?
  10. Once, some time ago, I posted about a really FUN and helpful book for learning classical composers, their eras and some of their famous compositions. The book covers (best of all?) how to construct memory palaces to apply to any other kind of learning. The ebook is on sale today and thought I would share again. http://www.amazon.com/Classical-Composers-Musical-Masters-Palaces-ebook/dp/B00M3PB41O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1408972141&sr=8-1&keywords=classical+composers
  11. After having looked at just about every science curriculum out there, and having read many threads here about unschooling science in the younger years, I've decided to do without a curriculum. Books should be easy to access; I'm fortunate to have a very good library. DD loved the Magic School Bus kits, but we're pretty well through those. What would you want for hands-on exploration for K-6? What I've thought of: - Lego Education kits - Zometool - Snap Circuits - microscope - chemistry set (anyone have a good one to recommend?) What else would be fun, educational, and encourage exploration?
  12. What do you use to teach your children computer skills, internet safety, etc. I am in search of a free program(s) for my dd who will be 11 soon. I guess this is my basic shopping list. She needs a good overview of what a computer is, basic computer usage, (how to make a folder, how to move files) internet safety, word processing (she is already using Word by trial and error), typing is being covered with Mavis Beacon so we don't need help there, how to use Paint, how to use Word, and I am open to any other suggestions of topics she should study. Thanks
  13. Hi all, I'm looking for a good historical atlas that my kids can use (they're going to be in 3rd and 6th). I'd still like it to be complete, but accessible to their ages. Any suggestions? What are your favorites?
  14. i'm interested in ideas on several things: 1) if anyone meshes elements of IEW, MCT, WWE/WWS together to create a personalized mosaic of Language Arts for their kiddos in elementary and heading into middle school. {{fyi background: our DS10 is finishing off 4th grade; DD8, 2nd. we combined LA this year (for the first time) with our DD in 2nd grade to do MCT Island+IEW SWI-A and it was a phenomenal success. i still had them working in their respective WWE levels peppered throughout, and i will probably continue that same approach because DS10 is generally stronger in linguistics than DD8. to follow up on IEW for 3rd and 5th grads, i'm thinking of AFF for IEW for DD8 to follow up/reinforce SWI-A and possibly the geo-based for my DS10. we also loved MCT Island that we did altogether this year. we love it all. i want to continue on with Town after we wrap up our schoolyear (we're just reviewing/reinforcing all the great stuff we've learned this year so far until then), and i'm trying to discern how to mesh that with IEW follow up (we're not going on to SWI-b just yet and are transitioning into WWS for the older one ..... without doing too much. i don't mind dabbling in all of it, alternating weeks here and there, to maintain a balanced mosaic approach. in fact, i find the changes of pace refreshing throughout the schoolyear. but i don't want to confuse the kids as they are acquiring skills. they love it and i want to just feed their love of language/writing as best i can.}} 2) we are winding down our need for WWE4 (DS has done the entire series)..... i don't want to start WWS just yet, and i want to make use of the kilgallon story grammar or sentence composing (that i have on our shelf but have never used ) before we try WWS or Town level just for a change of pace as well as a different perspective. what kilgallon is best to prep DS10 for WWS and / or Town? 3) i was also wondering if there's anybody out there who could comment on the various components of MCT Town and whether one needs to do all of it in order to benefit, if one is using something alongside such as WWS or IEW. stated differently, if one takes an a la carte approach to MCT Town, what components would be an overlap with WWS/IEW and therefore redundant or nonessential? thanks in advance -- i love all the different experiences and perspectives one can garner on the forums!!!! :)
  15. Hello all, I haven't been to the forums in quite a while, since what we are doing with my daughter is working. But now my son is school age and I have discovered, through research, that he is a VSL. (My daughter and I are not, though we are probably more whole brained than left brained.) What I have been using with my daughter definitely will NOT work for him. I'm looking for suggestions on curricula, especially for reading. We are planning on using Math Mammoth, but are open to other suggestions. Right now he's tagging along in science and history (R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey and various lapbooks for history). Again, I'm open to other suggestions for those subjects as well. But frankly reading has thrown me for a loop. My daughter and I both taught ourselves at such a young age that neither of us remembers a time when we weren't reading (daughter was 2). I am a former teacher, but I was taught to teach reading via phonics. That isn't working so far, and from my readings, it isn't likely to get any better. So, anyone with suggestions for curricula that will help a VSL, please chime in. Or if you have a VSL and know of something that didn't work, please post that too!! It'll cut down on research time! :p Thanks in advance, Aimee
  16. We are working our way through Prima Latina this year with my 2nd and 3rd grader. Its been OK but not very interesting and it has been difficult for me to teach with enthusiasm. I am interested in Latin and Greek mostly for the benefit of developing a broader vocabulary and the ability to decipher word meanings. So, here is my question. Is there a curriculum that teaches Latin with the intention of simply developing a vocabulary without going into much grammar? We have enjoyed our English grammar lessons and will continue with that so the overlap gets a little annoying for the girls. They want to skip through the grammar lesson to get to the vocabulary. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  17. We like: Families of the World series - each one gives a "day in the life" of a child in a rural area and an urban area of a particular country - one girl and one boy. Reading Rainbow - the covers and theme music look hokey (dated), but they are very informative and creatively done. Scholastic - picture books brought to life - a friend whose kids had outgrown them gave us a whole set, but we've found many at the library, too. Bill Nye, the Science Guy (Disney) - my 8 yo daughter loves him (she wants to be a marine biologist). Magic School Bus, of course! We're about to try the Felicity video (American Girl) we just picked up at the library since my oldest has read those books and we're just wrapping up the colonial period in SOTW. We've also watched some of the Liberty Kids series on Netflix instant. What are your favorites that you've found at the library, secondhand, or online?
  18. What are you doing for spanish for your homeschooler? Do you like it? Pros? Cons? Suggestions? My goal is for my kiddos to work towards becoming fluent.
  19. I am not a parent but a private school teacher trying to help other small schools improve their curriculum. I am in search of recommendations for an elementary grammar textbook, in print or out of print, which would focus on analysis, a grammar progression teaching parsing, definitions, etc., but which could then be integrated with the poems, dictations and readings chosen by the school. I would like something drawing students slowly to penetrate the nature of words & the structure of sentences, every year going deeper, not just fill in blanks and jump through hoops of randomly organized grammar worksheets! Whole-sentence exercises are great! Does anyone have any suggestions? Ann Marie
  20. Hi. My kids are entering 1st and 3rd grades (if we must assign a grade). We will be starting SOTW this fall, starting with the Ancients. With a crazy year ahead of us (major move and 1yo underfoot), I was going to do BJU Online Science 3 to get us by (don't everyone gasp at once - lol). But I am exploring what TWTM suggests for science before making any final decisions. With that said, we are considering Elemental Science Biology and Christian Kids Explore Biology. And I am not opposed to BJU, which has been a hit with my kids for 2 years. Does anyone wish to weigh in on this? LB
  21. Hi! I have a 3rd and 1st grader and was wondering what everyone uses for vocabulary and when they start. We are currently or going to be using First Language Lessons, Writing with Ease, Spelling Connections, and Vocabulary Cartoons. Any suggestions would be appreciated!:001_smile: Thanks, Jenny
