  1. Have any of you done notebooking for upper-elementary math? If so, how often did you use it & how was it organised? At the K-2 level the topics were so basic and flew by so quickly that it didn’t seem worthwhile. Now we are approaching more complex topics, and I’m wondering if it would be useful. I’m thinking a section each for anchor charts and worked examples, vocabulary, and reinforcement games “as needed” - I suspect primarily for topics related to geometry & measurement.
  2. Well, it's been a long time since I've been here! Good to be back. Our 2 oldest have graduated, married (both this summer!!) & now we've got littles to educate ;0) 1 year old, (new) 6 year old & 8 year old. I'm thinking about doing a semester more of kindy w/ the 6 yob & starting 1st in January. 8yog is solid third although math always needs more help! Has anyone tried to combine this many different styles?? The notebooking/narration part of the classical approach using SOTW that we did with our older ones is very similar to Waldorf's (somewhat) unit study approach to Main Lesson Books, although my brain needs workbooks for spelling, most of math, & handwriting (sorry about that sentence, not even gonna correct it bc it's too late at night)! We'll be on SOTW book 3 this fall but I really would love to encorporate the Waldorf studies of gardens, shelters, fiber arts & Native Americans. Any ideas welcome!

  4. I'm new to the Logic stage so I just had a question for those of you who are using WWS. Do you do the Notebooking/Outlining/Timeline/Source Eval with your core subjects? Or just as directed by WWS for writing? (Caveat-I've only glanced at WWS so far and it 'seems' like that is how it is set up. My question may be moot if I'm wrong about that...) Our core this year is US History. Long story short, I got the My Father's World Adventures in US History before we knew we'd be adding a 7th grader to the family. The materials are actually intended for 2-3rd graders who are the oldest students in the home. I decided to go ahead as planned and just beef up my requirements for him. I want to keep his academics on the lower demand side since we have a lot of adjusting to do anyway. Thanks for all suggestions and insight.
  5. I am planning on using Land Animals of the Sixth day and want to get a notebooking journal to go with it. I have 3 children I will be using this with - 2 will definitely need / use the junior version. My oldest could go either way - she likes to color and from the sample pages I think it would be ok for her. She doesn't need the primary lines for writing though. But if I get her the main notebooking journal - am I creating a lot more work for me having 2 different journals? (I also have a 5 yr old and 2 others in HS - so I am busy) Any recommendations from those that have used these? Is the junior version way to easy for an 11 year old? Thanks, Lori
  6. I plan on using SL Core H this year with my oldest ds13. We'll be using SOTW 3 and 4. I would LOVE to do some kind of notebooking to go along with this core, but haven't seen anything that stands out to me as a great plan. I didn't get the activity guides, because we have comprehension questions to answer in our SL IG, and we'll do mapwork on the markable map. I know he's too old for coloring pages, so the activity guides are pretty much out. I thought about doing some blank notebook pages that he could write a written narration on, but that just lacked the visual appeal. Does anyone have notebook pages or could tell me how I could make some? Thanks so much! ;)
  7. I have decided to use Apologia for science this year for my children, age 11, 6, and 4. My 11 year old struggles with writing and reading. Would it be best to purchase the regular notebook journal for all or purchase both the regular and junior version. I expect to get "creative" with my 4 yr old who wants to "school" the same as his siblings. Will the regular be too advanced for an 11 yr old that is "behind"? Would you suggest using the junior for all if that is the case? PS. I have tried lapbooks many times and failed miserably. My kids liked but never loved them and they always took too much time. Not for us. Hopefully notebook journaling will work better.
  8. I am hoping to do STOW 1 next year with a 2nd and 1st grader. I'm thinking that they will do a lot of notebooking. Does anyone have suggestions for materials (like history pockets but better) for notebooking STOW. I found this - which is great b/c it has tons of enrichment stuff and also the (FREE) lapbook download has some cool things and is well organized (It's probably put together by somebody here): http://runofthemillfamily.blogspot.ca/p/story-of-world-resources-for-volume-one.html Anyone else find anything -or do anything- cool for STOW? :bigear:
  9. I recently came across the Omnibus series in Veritas Press's catalog. Seeing this really threw a monkeywrench into my plans. Last year we studied Ancient Civilizations and the Bible with dd13 and dd15. The girls were very motivated in the interaction between research and hands-on projects which that program suggested. The program was great, (except that I felt it was simplistically preachy). Next year we are to study Medieval times, and I had prepared to do more of an historical-fiction based and webquest enriched survey of Medieval history. I came across the idea of Notebooking, where the student collects information that they find interesting about the topic, and put together a "scrapbook," creatively using the information they have collected. So my plan was to do more of an open-ended research of the Middle Ages. My major was in the Social Sciences, with a lot of work in History, so I feel quite comfortable in this. But in comes Omnibus, which will introduce the girls to a smorgasbord of primary document readings from the time period studied, and all the thought-provoking questions are right there for you. Beowulf, Sir Gawain, Macbeth, Canterbury Tales... But the time it takes to do Omnibus is prohibitive: eight 70 minute sessions a week, not including reading time. Another complication is that we are enrolled in Potter's School English classes, which I absolutely love. But 'time' is taken by this. Oh, and then I have been perusing a thread from last month on the value of 'independent learning projects' http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/showthread.php?t=402048&highlight=omnibus+ii This makes me have to rethink all of my planning. Maybe I need to X all my history/science/skills plans and have the children research according to their interests. I also saw TOG, which seems to actually approach history as doing history, not just a context for literature. So as I am thinking of all this, my question for you all out there is this: Ominibus is a heavy top-down teaching program, introducing some really amazing and valuable literature that independent foragers would seldom choose, but skimming the surface with questionable retention of anything but the philosophical discussions. Notebooking has high chance of retention, and taps into the creative side that ensures positive memory, but limited in scope (if interest-driven) and questionable depth. Independent (interest-driven) learning has high chance of retention, but would be depth at the expense of breadth, and very questionable direction. What thoughts do you have regarding combining these, and I'd especially like to hear from Omnibus (or TOG) veterans? Try to persuade me.
  10. I posted this on the K-8 curr. board also. Last year I made some notebooking pages for american history, science, music, etc. I made a link to them on my blog: http://trueblessingshomeschool.blogspot.com ... on top of the right side bar. I will try to make more in the coming months. Hope this helps someone.
  11. I have been busy working putting together pages for our high school plans that many people ask me about all the time. Here are the links...hope they are helpful. Remember I homeschool using both the classical model and Charlotte Mason methods for homeschooling so I tend to go with a more "living books" approach to courses. Chemistry for High Schoolers Astronomy for High Schoolers Notebooking in High School Videography for High School Robotics for High School Charlotte Mason for High School including this one in case you are interested in seeing how I pull her ideas into our homeschool
  12. Hello I just read a review that informed me WP notebooking pages are not what I thought they would be. Can anyone recommend a good alternative that will match the American History 1 curriculum? Thank you
  13. Some of you remember that I adapted the Simply Charlotte Mason scripture memory system to function in a binder so it could be used for longer passages. That file was meant for tiny binders and didn't adapt well to larger ones because of the resolution of the images I used. Then my website went down and it was only because of cillakat putting it up on Google Docs that the world at large continues to have access to it. Well, I'm making a second edition that will be full size. I also have some other changes and additions to make. I want to have a page on which we can list all of the verses we hope to memorize that year or all of the verses we have memorized that year. I planned to have it set up like a blank table of contents with Memory Work 2010-11 across the top. But, it occurred to me that some folks don't follow a typical school year and would prefer it to say 2010. Then I thought, maybe it doesn't need to have a year at all. Maybe it could be just a list. One of my kids memorizes much more slowly than the others so it would take us years to fill up a page long list. I need feedback! Which of these options would you prefer to head up the list of memorized stuff? Memory Work Memory Work 2010-11 Memory Work 2010
  14. My two boys ages 11 and 12 yrs are needing some remedial spelling and reading help. They are at about the same level- between mid. 5th and mid. 6th grade. They are both about a year behind. We have been using Spelling Power for about a year and a half. Before that, it was this and that. Nothing really fit well. So- now I have two boys needing help with spelling rules... which of course will help them with their reading. Recently I've chosen to use WTM. I know they say to divide the language arts folder into 7 parts: Spelling (prefixes / suffixes / root words), Word Study, Grammar, Reading, Memory Work, Writing, and Dictation. So, my question here is, doing the remedial work with them, should I set it up different? Adding other sections, such as spelling rules? My plan, is to start the program tomorrow. :D HEHE! - As far as SPELLING- But I'm just not sure how to give them a rule concentrated crash course. We have 10 more weeks in this school year. Am I crazy??? :tongue_smilie:
  15. I just successfully made a couple of notebooking pages for our Ancients study. No longer will I have to gaze wistfully on other homeschoolers' cool notebooking pages. Now my children will also have lines to write upon and boxes to draw in. I found this Squidoo explanation helpful, even though I was using Word and not Publisher. Now we're off to make paper dolls of nomads. Have to find some use for all the scrapbooking paper we've been hoarding. Surely I have some cute animal skin to use as clothing.
