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.)

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.

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!
