  1. I was looking for Ancient History for youngers and was strongly considering SCM. In the meantime I found Science in the Beginning by Jay Wile. Does anyone use these together? Then I saw that MFW CtG also uses Science in the Beginning, but do they schedule the whole book or just parts? Pam
  2. Hello everyone, I'll get to the point and then explain. Have any of you tried doing all or most of TruthQuest in one year? How has it worked? Context: I have a daughter who is a high school senior and we need to change what we've been doing, but I don't know how to fit it all in. I would like to do TQ perhaps alongside Simply Charlotte Mason books with my other children. At the TQ site, there is a one-year schedule for those starting the program in grade 12. (It won't really be a problem if she graduates a semester late. She will probably start CLEPing courses for college late in her senior year or just after.) Backstory: Why am I changing things when she is about to graduate? In a nutshell, because I don't want her to "just graduate." She did AO lifepac US History and Streams of Civilization but we were just trying to finish without supplementing so she doesn't remember much. We've been homeschooling for nearly 20 years but recently we've just been in "get 'er done" mode to meet the requirements and history comprehension is one area that has suffered. I'd rather tailor school to enhance my children's God-given strengths and to improve their weak areas. We did a better job of this with our first two boys. Even though we used textbooks for history to quickly meet the requirements, they did a lot of supplemental reading and they enjoyed learning history so they mastered much more of it. In sum: So, TruthQuest seems to be what we need now and seems like it would be a "fit" for where I’m going with the last ones. I am also hoping that as we discuss it as a family, some of my older daughter's "gaps" will get filled in (not because she needs it for school but for her benefit). I wish I had come across TQ a few years earlier. Any suggestions? I hope so! I've read how TQ can be overwhelming. Thanks in advance!
  3. I'm having problems deciding on history/geography for next year. I have an upcoming 1st and 3rd grader. We tried to use HOD this year and it isn't working well for us. I started in Bigger (which I did LOVE as did my 8 yr old) but it was too hard in certain skills for my son (too much writing - he struggles with LA). I decided to combine the kids in Beyond and honestly I find it boring. I liked Bigger much better (and my 8 yr old did too) but I couldn't combine in it and it was frustrating both of us with the writing. Don't want to make the same mistakes next year. 8 yr old is great at math, science, and Bible/History - listening to me read and narrating. Needs improvement in Grammar/Spelling/Writing. I need: A program that can EASILY combine 2 kids who are 2 years apart (6 & 8 ... 6 year is advanced in reading/writing/spelling skills - might even be same or better than 8 yr old ... not as good at sitting still and listening) Something simple each day - not tons of books to read ... but we do enjoy read alouds - I prefer to do history one day and science the next 8 yr old has a good grasp on Old Testament Study, Ancient Egypt, (never did Greece/Rome), explorers up through Pilgrims - we have not study the Revoluionary War or Civil War; 6 yr old has retained much of any history to this point. Love the idea of a unit study world geography but am not convinced of which one to do (studying maps, cultures, famous people and animals from each continent) Need something with not a ton of writing maybe some drawings they could do and some copywork Do not want to be stuck doing pilgrims for any longer than we've done - we all want to move on I'm considering Simply Charlotte Mason #5 which does Early American and World and Geography - looks thorough! A Trail Guide to World Geography and maybe Galloping the Globe or A Living History of the World #4.
  4. Which is easier to implement? Which program has more Bible incorporated in it? Which would be the least expensive to purchase the materials for? Which is more rigorous? Thanks!
  5. Anyone, use SCM? (or even Ambleside) Do you feel like it is a lot (too much) of bookwork? How do you do at making things interactive and fun? Does this method help you think of and plan fun activities and find ideas? Do you follow there guide exactly, moderately, minimally? What do you think is the best about this method/currc.? Do you use their planner? What do you think of it?
  6. I was referred to this website in another post and just looked at it. Okay, I have to admit, I go curriculum-crazy. Is this easy to do, or am I crazy? I am now CS teaching, but want to homeschool by K or 1st grade. What is necessary to make this kind of curriculum a success? :confused:
  7. Is anyone using these? We will finish up SOTW finally. I really like the looks of the samples. I need more open and go in my life. I like that all grades have something to do. I love that I only need to buy or borrow the books for that term. Any thoughts? I am considering starting with this one.
  8. ...Ambleside, or Simply Charlotte Mason? I have used them for book suggestions, but am now considering doing more with one of them. I am used to a more formally planned curriculum, that I can tweak to suit the days, but I need a change. I want my girls to be inspired, but not if it means long hours each week scheduling. Thanks!
  9. This is the month of curriculum planning madness around here. :D I've been all over the place, but I keep feeling pulled toward SCM. Anyone here use those schedules or history handbooks? I would love some feedback (good, bad, and especially the ugly!) Thanks~
  10. Any followers? How is it working out for you? Do you use the guides or make your own plans? Do you keep your dc together or have them each follow their own modules so they all start with Bible/Ancient Egypt? Thanks so much!
  11. Does anyone have experience with the 6 year history cycle used at Simply Charlotte Mason? http://simplycharlottemason.com/planning/scmguide/history-modules-overview/ Does anyone do this? How well does it work? Does anyone use SCM as a base, but change the history to a 4 year cycle? It seems like a pretty easy guide to play around with. Oh, and I only put SCM in the title to see if that was causing the error when trying to post. I've tried more than 10 times now to post this :glare:
  12. Good morning! For those moms who use AO or SCM (either alone or in combo with WTM), how did you choose which one to use? I have read some of the posts at SCM about the differences between the two and searched the archives here as well, but would love to hear more. I have thought for some time that a more CM approach would be of great benefit to my daughters, especially the oldest. I have always been drawn to it, but just never able or willing to take enough time to really learn all about it and plan our weeks in a more CM-friendly way. Part of the reason is because my oldest DD has ADD (not medicated at this point) and there is no way I can see that she could come close to finishing a lesson in 20 min. or so. At any rate, I am at a place where I now have the time and energy to really focus on changing our homeschool for the better. I want to move towards CM while still keeping with the WTM language arts - DD loves R&S for grammar and I do not want to change that! Both AO and SCM appeal to me. I think AO has so much more in the way of help with their Yahoo! forums and such, but I am not sure how "do-able" it would be to have a DD in Y2 or Y3 and another in Y0. They would always be on different things. But I have also read on AO why they advise not to combine children for the sake of combining. SCM has children combined in history, for instance, which appeals to me more. Each has it's own merits! So, what did you choose for your family, and why? I am very interested to hear!
  13. If you are, are you able to keep your days relatively short? Because everything they recommend looks like a lot! I understand that you don't do every subject every day, but it still looks like a little overwhelming to me. Would love to get feedback on this.
