  1. 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!

  2. My third grader is in public school this year. We are having trouble transitioning from homeschool to public school, especially with the necessary afterschooling. I homeschooled him in preschool. He went to a different public school for kindergarten, where he had a great social time but didn't learn the 3R's, so I homeschooled him 1st and 2nd grade, and now he's in a different public school for 3rd grade. I would have preferred to continue our homeschool curriculum, or something similar in a classroom, but public school is the best option for our family right now. He is a basketcase. His teachers tell us that he has wonderful behavior at school, seems to be happy to be there; and the structured day, social interaction, and consistent schedule seem to be just what he needed and wanted. But he is a basketcase at home. Because of our different approach with homeschool, he does not line up perfectly with where his classmates are expected to be. In some subjects, I knew he was about a half a grade "behind," but in others, he is perfectly comfortable. We didn't want to retain him in 2nd grade and hurt his self-esteem. We wanted to give him a challenge, a chance to work hard. But he cannot do the assigned homework without our constant presence and help. I give him extra independent work to do, to get his 3R's skills up to speed. But all of it, the homework and the afterschooling, is a battle. He struggles with the academics because the approach is so different, common core and all that, and he takes his frustrations out on us parents with tantrums, defiance, whining, ugly words. I'm pretty sure it's a kid character/age problem, because our 1st grader is really soaring, in the same school, after two years at home with me. We have tried several approaches, and the latest we have landed on is to make sure that he gets plenty of free-range outdoor playtime for the entire afternoon block after school. After dinner, when younger siblings are settling down for bed, we work on homework/afterschool with him. And in the morning, on his way to school, he reads aloud the memory work that I put together each week to complement the classwork. We have already met with his teachers twice, and all agree that he should not go back to 2nd grade, but see 3rd grade through and repeat it next year if necessary. He will start one day a week tutoring with his teachers in a few weeks, and they will send tailored extra help home with him. This afternoon at pickup, he said, "Mom, I think I DO like school after all." Here is my question: Should I blow off the homework entirely and focus all our attention on working steadily through the 3R's curriculum that I believe he will not get if I don't provide it, knowing that it will undergird his work in the classroom, over time? Or should I drop the classical approach for now, and put all my energy into making this public school common core system work for us? Do you have any classical curriculum suggestions that complement common core? Thank you for your advice.

  3. I have three kids who have always been homeschooled. My husband has been saying for some time that he thinks that our youngest, an eight year old boy, would be happier in school. (Mostly because of social reasons.) To make a long story shorter, this weekend we all agreed to give school a try for him for one grading period (nine weeks) and then make future decisions based on how it goes. Our local elementary school has a very very good reputation. First of all, has anyone else ever done something like this? Second, whether you've done school as a "trial" or just entered public school for the first time in the middle of a school year, what should I know and advice do you have? I'm so out of the loop -- my older child asked if we needed to go shopping to get him a backpack, and I was like, "Oh yeah ... I guess so!" Thanks for any insight or stories.
  4. I have been doing R&S with my 8 yr old son since well, forever. He's going to be in third grade next year and I'm thinking about switching him to Teaching Textbooks. I have heard good things from my friend who also has been using it since first grade. Any other reviews would be helpful (good or bad) before we jump in with both feet. Thanks! Kyla
  5. I'm thinking of incorporating more Great Books/Angelicum resources next year. The Great Books history list for 3rd is: Ancient Egypt: History Pockets (it looks like they use this version, 4-6) Ancient Egypt: Moments in History Tales of Ancient Egypt by Roger Lancelyn Green Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt (Landmark history book by Elizabeth Payne) Spend the Day in Ancient Egypt activity book Pyramid by David Macauley ... any thoughts RE this (with some sort of guide, CM narrations and some writing assignments) as 3rd grade history?
  6. Help me decide on a Latin program for DD. We've finished Song School Latin and she loved it. I'd like something she and I can work through together to learn Latin since I don't have a Latin background. I really want a solid foundation for Latin - DD wants to be a doctor when she grows up. Even if she changes her mind later on, I figure a strong basis of Latin will help her. :) I originally thought we'd go with LfC, but I've read great things about Lively Latin and Prima Latina too. HELP! :)
  7. I started January of this year (2012) with Horizon 5-pack curriculum and let me just say it is really NOT working for us... I wanted your recommendations on Math for 3rd grade... My plan is: Math-MUS or MM or Singapore or RS or Saxon. History-SOTW AG and UILE. Science-Nancy Larson Science. Language Arts-AAS, WWE and FLL Spanish-Rossetta Stone Level 1 Art & Music (haven't gotten to research that yet) It's a lot. And I've gotten most of the ideas from reading this forum. I don't know anyone who home schools and I'm totally relying on other people's experiences. If you have any advice on any of these choices (or others) pleeease share. I thought I would say something about my ds; he is 7 now and very ADHD when around his sisters. But as soon as we have some time alone he gets to work well. He has the shortest attention spam I've ever seen but when I tell him real life stories or read him books he actually listens and pays attention. I pulled him from ps mid-year of 2nd grade. I tried imitating a ps setting and it is awful. As soon as he sees me explaining anything on the whiteboard his eyes go everywhere in the room as to looking for something interesting and doesn't hear a word I'm saying... Now I'm ready to mix and match from as many different books as needed to find what's right for us. No more 5-subject packs for me!! Wow this is much longer than I thought I was going to write (sorry). Anyways thanks if you read all this and took the time to comment. :001_smile: ***I forgot to say I was born in Argentina and I can read, write and speak fluent Spanish. However, my son's 1st language is English. I want him to be bilingual eventually but right now we're just concentrating on an English curriculum and Spanish being an "extra-curricular" subject. (I picked Rossetta Stone because I want him to learn the South American type of Spanish instead of the Mexican one that most home school books teach)
  8. :D So far, I've settled on: HWT Cursive Math-U-See Apologia's Flying Creatures I still need a spelling (had settled on AAS, but now can't decide between a phonogram or morpheme approach, ugh) and writing (MAJOR UGH!!!) curr. I have WWE, but am not stoked on the fables and such, but would love something similar and CMish. We're not doing "formal" history and geo. until fourth grade (MFW) or grammar (Shurley) until 5th grade. So, what are you using? I need some ideas! :bigear:
  9. Per TWTM, we're on course to do chemistry in the fall, and my daughter is very into science, so I think all the more reason to study a new area (we've done life, earth, and astronomy). I've done some research here and elsewhere, so I've narrowed down our choices to these: Elemental Science The Elements Classic Science Elementary Chemistry Real Science Odyssey Chemistry Christian Kids Explore Chemistry The first one seems more classically oriented, which reminds me of Apologia (we just did their astronomy and loved it), but I'm drawn to the whimsicalness and creativity of the 2nd and 3rd, as my daughter gravitates toward colorful illustrations & humor. The last two seem the most comprehensive/thorough. I'm fine with getting two of these, but I can't justify spending for more than that. Most are around $25/30 (bound) but the 3rd & 4th are $50, so that's another consideration. Cathy Duffy reviewed the Christian one and said it isn't "in your face" that way, but I actually like the idea of God at least being mentioned because that was a big part of what we both enjoyed about Apologia. I'm also a little worried about all the experiments, as that's an area where I tend to be weak, though I'm bucking up for the challenge, since I know this subject is less theoretical and more hands-on, especially at this age. Still, I'd probably like something that's more evenly balanced between knowledge and practical application. ...So, has anyone used any of these with a child in the grammar stage, and what did you think?
  10. I looked and didn't see 3rd grade plans yet. I will be bringing all of my kids home again next year and am looking for ideas and what subjects actually need to be taught (do they need phonics still?).
  11. Hello, If this has been asked recently, please feel free to link me to another thread. I did a search & did not find answers. I am planning for grade 3 & I'd love to see what you have used, are using, or plan to use! Thanks so much! Susan
  12. Please share what are you using for 3rd grade? What have you loved? What would you change and why? Thanks in advance for your time, it is greatly appreciated.
