  1. :seeya: Hello all! We are actually new to homeschooling. This is our first year. I have two little girls. We are loving it so far. I wasn't sure where to start in the beginning so I purchased some items, Abeka, Apologia, and Saxon. Well I got rid of it all except the Saxon and kept the Abeka Language Arts just because of cost. I went to US History from America's Core Curriculum and a science program by Ryan Murphy. They are ok, but not giving me that WoW feeling! I'm so glad I found information on classical education! I've actually just started the book and I'm really liking it! Although I do have LOTS of questions! I was wandering what you use in addition to this, if anything? Most of what I'm seeing is history; what do people use for math, science? Language arts, reading, and latin is integrated in the history (right?). Also, I have a 6th grader (12) and a 3rd grader (8 1/2); where is a good starting point? I saw in FAQ in 'older child' and 'multiple children' there are suggestions, but is there one thats better or preferred? Should I scrap the curriculum I have (which I don't even like except the Saxon), and start with this after Christmas and go through summer to catch up? Thanks and sorry for all the questions! Amanda

  3. We have a 5th, a 4th and a 1st grader. I am feeling comfortable leveling all combined lessons except science. We are studying Biology this year and our 1st grader is mostly bored. I am using the WTM suggestions and our main sources are encyclopedias. I don't have the resources to do as many experiments as I'd like. So we are studying, sketching and doing various worksheet type activities for review. I love science and hate to be presenting it in a boring way. I think it's just over her head. Do I just let her skip to the "fun" books from the library on each subject and let that be enough?
  4. We're wrapping up this year and I have everything ready for next year ... except for phonics. And all the options are making my head spin!:confused: Little background: DD7 is finishing up "1st Grade". We did 100EZ Lessons and finished in December. Since then, we've been working our way through ClickNRead Phonics and she's just over halfway through the program. We're just now covering blends and long vowels. She is a very wiggly willy She is easily distracted, but a highly creative child. She reads fairly well. She's not confident yet to read through chapter books without help, but will read Easy Readers and Dr. Suess type books enthusiastically. Also, her writing isn't the best (she still flips letters and numbers on occasion). Spelling is more or less nonexistent. She is incredibly good at memorization, but translating the memorized material into application sometimes gets lost. Oh, and she strongly dislikes workbooks (though she's gotten a lot better about doing them). DD5 will be starting "Kindergarten" next year. She attended a private preschool the last two years. She recognizes all her letters, capital and lower case and knows what sound each makes. I started her on ClickNRead Phonics this week, just because she's really ready to start reading. She is VERY bright and a quick study. She picks up on the way things work very easily. I also have another DD3, who I will also need to consider in the future. While I didn't mind 100EZ Lessons, I am worried it didn't give DD7 the phonics foundation she needs to be able to decode words and become a great speller. It's why I haven't started it with DD5, even though she's more than ready to start. I have considered Phonics Road to Reading and Spelling for a few months, but am balking at the price. I checked it out at a convention last weekend, and liked it, but not enough to invest in it (because in reality, it's like a $1500+ investment if we follow through all four lessons + the Latin lessons). However, if it works as well for my child as it claims to, then the investment is worth it. Another consideration is Queen's Homeschool Language Lessons from reading through some threads and really like the look of it. I'm curious if it will cover all the necessary phonics rules, leading into basic grammar, setting the foundation for what's to come. I also found this free program online, and I'm wondering if I can just teach from it. However, I also know that one generally gets what she pays for ... I've considered Explode the Code but don't think it will work for DD7, but might for DD5. Also, while I don't necessarily want another option to consider, if you have something you've used that's worked very well, feel free to throw it out there ... I just really need a creative way to teach Phonics. I'm not sure where I need to go from this point. Can anyone who's been here and made it through offer some guidance? I'm at my wit's end. Thanks for being willing to read through my anxiety (and possibly offer some insight)! This newer hs mom appreciates it!
  5. I haven't begun the real work of my homeschooling journey yet, but am dedicated to preparing as much as I can ahead of time -- first, by reading The Well-Trained Mind and, currently, by reading Charlotte Mason's Original Homeschooling Series. I haven't committed to much by way of curriculum yet, but I would like to use Story of the World, and to keep my history cycles really organized (ie. to use The Bible / Black Ships Before Troy / Aesop's Fables for grade 1 read-alouds etc.). The one thing I can't really comprehend at this stage is how to do have my son (5), learn the history of the ancient world in grade 1, but not to have my daughter (3) learn it until she begins grade 1. Two specific questions in regards to that: my children are 21 months apart, but would have only been 1 year apart in school. Should I start her a year or two years behind my son? And, do you recommend getting Story of the World in print, or on CD, in order to facilitate keeping history lessons specific to each child's grade level? Thank you for your advice!
  6. I'm trying to figure out the best way to teach all three children (my youngest is joining us next year - and my only boy). I will keep them together as much as possible for the content areas: history and science. I will either stick with WTM or try MFW or TBA (LOL). These are the subjects where I like to be the most involved - reading, discussions, narrations (the most challenging thing). I know I still need to be available to them in the skill areas (math and language arts), but because they have to work at different levels and those abilities come pretty naturally to my girls, it seems sensible to me to have them work as independently as possible - we'll stick with CLE Math as that works well for us, but LA is where I'm wondering what to do. FLL and WWE require a lot of parent involvement, and I've heard R&S does, too. CLE LA is what I'm doing with my oldest now, and I'm not liking it much - spelling is too easy, non-grammar stuff is tedious/repetitive, so only grammar (and only some of it) is teaching anything new.
