  1. My oldest daughter is 9 years old. We will be using ELTL for the first time this year. This past school year, we were using R&S for Grammar and Spelling. She loves to write stories and does pretty good forming sentences and paragraphs. However, her spelling needs a lot of work. So, my questions are, should I be using a writing program as well, or will ELTL be sufficient? And, should I give ELTL a chance before supplementing with a spelling program, or should I do a little extra in this area since I know it's already a problem that needs addressed? Thanks in advance!
  2. I am looking for a language arts program for my 6 yo dd who is doing ETC workbook 3.5, Teaching your child to read in 100 easy lessons and Phonics pathways with McGuffey First reader and other library readers. Before this, she had finished Spectrum Reading Kindergarten and Treasure's Readings and its activity book. I came across this Language Arts a few days ago. Has anyone used this? http://www.jennyphillips.com/home-school-curriculum/ Is this an all-in-one meaty LA Curriculum? Does it need any supplementing? I hope to get some feedback on the Good and Beautiful LA curriculum. What are your thoughts and opinions ? Are they complete? Can it be used as a spine? From what I am reading on their website, they sound like something I'd like, but I'd love some honest feedback from those of you who have actually used it or reviewed it. I'm also very curious about Treasure workbooks and Evan moor Spelling and Grammar(Evan moor building spelling skills and Evan moor Grammar and punctuation) books.. Can we use them together? How does Good and Beautiful LA compare to the Evan moor books that I am very interested in? I have a nagging feeling that I'm missing something and I'm curious to see what your opinions are regarding this course? If I need to supplement, then which books (Treasures or Evan moor) will be a good and solid choice with Good and Beautiful LA curriculum? Any thoughts, opinions, or how you use this curriculum in your home school would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
  3. Hello all, :001_smile: I live abroad and sending my 2nd grade son to a Russian school this coming year. I want to make sure he keeps up with his English LA, reading and writing and follows the U.S. standards/common core. We want to compile the best sources for this during the summer so that we have everything we need to start at the school year. I will be the one teaching him. I'm searching and searching and can't seem to find a place that would review all of the textbooks and resources. Does anybody have recommendations for LA, reading and writing curriculum/textbooks and resources for 2nd grade? My preferences are: - Non religious (although i know some religious curriculum is designed so that I can choose the materials i want to use) - Combines Social Studies/World Studies and Geography or other handy subjects he may need to keep up with - Inquiry based Thank you so much! Mrs.TB
  4. I'm usually not swayed by curricula, and I was planning on being a good little hsing mommy and using PLL and ILL with all three children. My DD6 is moving into 2nd grade next fall, and I was planning on starting PLL with her, no problem. Then I saw English Lessons Through Literature. Let me explain. Ds couldn't care less about format, he's not very visual. He liked PLL all right. He doesn't like ILL because it makes him write. Now Dd, she's very visual and cares about how things looks. She's artistic, likes beauty, and complains when things are in black and white. The pictures in our PLL are in black and white. Sigh. I wasn't planning on spending more money on LA as I thought I already had everything. I even have Voyages in English 3. I like VIE's presentation of grammar, but 3 may be a bit too complicated for her. Not sure. These are the programs I don't own, but I'm tempted by. I like the looks of English Lessons Through Literature (ELTL). It feels somewhat like a more modern PLL, with color pictures. I also love the idea of the literature being culled from whole stories and books instead of excerpts. The only con I can see that we are tied down to the selections, which means we can't do English that day if the section has not been read. Which is not a biggie, I think. Then there's Galore Park Junior English Book 1. I own JE Book 2 and 3, but not 1. I like the informal way it's presented, but thorough, and varied. The cons are the snippets of reading selections. That could be a pro for reading comp, though. So what are my options? 1- Just do PLL, woman. Resist temptation. 2- Combine PLL with ELTL 3- Combine PLL with GP JE Book 1 4- Skip PLL altogether and do just ELTL 5- Skip PLL and combine ELTL and GP JE Book 1 6- Combine PLL with Voyages in English (it's colorful!) and save money 7- Combine ELTL and VIE 8- Combine ELTL and GP JE Book 1 Ah! So many choices! I'm running around in circles and I can't seem to decide. She's comfortable with the pencil, but she hasn't written too much this year. Copywork and penmanship, that's about it. She writes for fun too. What to do? ETA: I may be moving into CAP's Writing & Rhetoric in 3rd.. but of this I'm not certain either. I was so sure with DS. Why am I having doubts with my girl now?
  5. I'm currently using WWE and FLL, both level one for my first grader who is an advanced reader. I'm not in love with it. I find it too slow and not challenging in the least. I've thought of just skipping a level, but I'm concerned it's never going to be what I want. For second grade, I'd like: diagramming parts of speech sentences and paragraphs I feel that the Peace Hill Press curriculum is just so much copy work. SO MUCH. He doesn't mind all that much, but I want to see more improvement in his own writing, which I don't see a lot of with this curriculum, since it requires no independent writing. As for spelling, I tried Rod and Staff spelling 2, as I love their phonics book, but I didn't care for the spelling. And as for Literature, it is non-existent. We read a lot of superhero books and Ninjago. Gag, I know. Help! Can anyone recommend grammar, literature or spelling curriculums, and tell me a little about it? I am overwhelmed with the number of choices out there, and not sure which ones are worth checking out. Also, if you could, please avoid using abbreviations. I just used the only ones I know. :D
  6. I would love feedback on how these programs compare. If you have used one or any, please let me know your thoughts. We have used FLL for one year. I personally find level 1 to be great and level 3 makes me want to gnaw my arm off slowly. My dh likes them both, so he does that work and he would like to continue FLL because of the repetition, copy work, poetry, and memorization. My kids don't mind them, but I wouldn't say they look forward to them with anticipation. I do like the poems, memorization, and copy work. We haven't used WWE or IEW. What do you like or dislike? If you combine any of them, how do you do it? MCT looks so visually appealing, inspiring and simple. It's way more expensive than it should be, IMO but maybe worth it. Another post indicated the MCT program was great at explaining good writing, but not at showing how to write. Is IEW supposed to be combined with another LA program? Well, I've asked enough questions. ;)
  7. Oh, those who have gone before me, please guide me now. I've hemmed and hawed for two years about buying MCT, mostly due to price but also not being sure I could wrap my mind around the program. I'm pretty sure I want to take the plunge and believe I've got a much better feel for how it would go. But now, I'm wondering, is my 6th grader too old for it? She knows grammar rules, but it's not internalized. And she loves things that are beautiful and crafting beautiful sentences, by copying good writing. So, I think MCT will encourage and develop that! BUT, which program should I start with? She's going to be in 6th grade. She will have completed 1/2 of Intermediate Language Lessons by Emma Serl and Rod and Staff English 4. Should she start with Town level or Voyage? Also, I've been thinking about what to use to complement it--usage and mechanics practice. I've seen people using Hake 6 but I've been thinking about using Evan Moor Daily Language Review and Daily Paragraph Editing. Would that be enough? Should I continue with ILL? (besides spelling with a different program) One last question...would this be something that little brother (who will be in 3rd) could listen in on and benefit from (while still doing his own LA program)? I want to do what is best for 6th grader, so his involvement doesn't sway the decision one way or the other for me, just curious. But maybe he'd enjoy it too?
