  1. While I'm at library booksales, I sometimes see volumes from these anthologies (sample pictures below): The Children's Hour: http://thesmallhousehalfwayupinthenextblock.com/ebay/2008-06-11/books.html Young Folks Library: http://www.amazon.com/Young-Folks-Library-Volumes-Set/dp/B005IAV9W0 They seem similar - selections of poetry, fiction, non-fiction. The vintage ones are lovely, with the color illustrations and hard covers. I have a soft spot for vintage texts, but shelf space and money constrain me from buying every text that comes my way. :tongue_smilie: Does anyone have one or the other (or both), and want to comment on them? Or, would you recommend another collection? For example, I've seen Collier's "The Junior Classics" too, but not as often.
  2. I know there are several for word problems but up for any ideas!
  3. x-posted from chat, where I shouldn't have posted it :) ************* So I have the Bookhouse set that i got for nothing basically; Little Guy and I have worked through Volume 4, and I hope to use them more this year with my older guys--one in particular does really well with shorter selections, so I hope to have him read more stories this year in between full books. And there are some good selections in there--we've had them for about a year or more. BUT in reading lovely threads about these sets, people kept mentioning other sets--and the least expensive and seemingly well loved was the Collier Junior Classics--so I searched around and found a reasonably priced set and they are on their way. And I don't know if I should feel warm and fuzzy or if I should kick myself because I don't have room for these---- Tell me why they are awesome. Tell me how you use them. Explain to me a little bit about the organization--when I see titles listed, it looks like they are topical, not age-based like the Bookhouse ones. How are they regarding classic stories compared to random stories. Anything you want to tell me will be helpful :) It's the 1962 set--I know some comments say the pre-1960 are the best, but several ppl said the 1962s are very good, and they were easiest to find. B

  5. There are plenty of links for vintage LA curricula. I have seen some for science and history. However, I have pretty much only seen references to Ray's. Are there any OTHER vintage freebies for math out there?
  6. How useful are vintage science books? How do we know the relevant from the outdated? Which vintage science books are YOUR favorites?
  7. If you were to construct a grammar program for grades 2-8 from vintage texts available from google e-books (or other equally available texts, such as Serl's PLL from Lost Classics, etc.), what would it be? I like the looks of Sheldon's, of Mary Frances Hyde's Two-Book Course in English, Harvey's, etc., but I'm struggling with how I could use them in a logical sequence for grammar/logic stages. I'm looking for something comparable to the R&S English books (but more secular). I'll probably go with R&S (perhaps with vintage books to supplement)! I just want to see what all my options are. I'll be using Delightful Dictation with Spelling, so I don't need anything to cover dictation/spelling...
  8. I was given a copy of The Junior Classics 10 volume set. I feel like I just hit a gold mind. My question is- how in the world am I going to "cross reference" these before I go looking for books elsewhere? There is so much literature and it would be a great way to preview something and see if we want to read the whole thing, but there is no way I will remember what is in them. I'm hoping someone has maybe aligned them with the 4 year chronological order? Here's to hoping!
  9. I am looking for a public domain compostition book for upper elementary. Anyone have any recommendations and/or reviews? Thank you!
  10. So, I was on google books and noticed that Primary Language Lessons is now available for free. I plan to put it into a workbook format with a lot of copying and pasting but its a great resource for extra language arts! Woohoo! :D This made my day!
  11. The copyright date should make it available, and Intermediate LL is available... I mean, I have a copy of the reprint in my hand which I bought used, but I'd like to see the original before they revised it. Does anyone know? JoAnne
  12. Does anyone use Kate Van Wagonenen's Modern Speller? If so, what year/ages is it supposed to be for? How do you use it?
  13. This morning I found this (Illustrated Lessons in Composition and Rhetoric), which looks like a nice overview of many types of composition. The lessons and types of composition are explained in detail, giving great assistance for all of us who would like a bit of hand-holding in getting started towards the progym. From what I've seen so far, and especially considering that this is a free resource, it's worth a look. I posted a link to it earlier on the progym thread, but I thought since it was such a nice resource, I would give it a mention on a thread of its own. Here is a list of lessons covered in the book: *Descriptive *Narrative *Expository *Argumentative *Letter Writing *Oral Composition *Fable *Essay *Public Address *Debate *Poetry *Review of grammar and diction
  14. What are you using? How's it working for you? Do you and your DC like it? What grade level is your DC working at? We are just starting Maxwell's First Book in English. So far so good. We are both enjoying it. Could anyone e-mail me a PDF of Maxwell's Primary Lesson's in Language & Composition? Being outside the US i can't download from Google Books and when i download the EPUB version from archive.org the graphics are all off, or missing and it doesn't work so I'm going to need the PDF version. Maybe PM me if you can help and i'll send you my e-mail addy. Any new vintage finds?
  15. Did you use any other writing program with it? Did you use any other language arts program at all? I was planning on doing spelling as well but now I'm wondering if I should do WWE2 also for narration at least. Of course then I was thinking why can't I just do some narration from all the books we read, but I find myself slightly terrified of screwing something up or leaving something out. However, I really, really want to have my grammar and writing together in one program. Also, I'm still comparing them all and if you have any insights as to why you think one is better than another I'm all ears :)
  16. In case any fans of Sheldon's PLL are interested, he wrote a Graded Speller http://books.google.com/books?id=uY8AAAAAYAAJ&printsec=frontcover#v=onepage&q&f=false Or http://www.archive.org/details/gradedspellerar00shelgoog I used Reading Reflex to teach reading, so I like the organizational system Sheldon has used, which is by sound. Anyway I decided to start this thread to make it less likely to get lost, for anyone interested. He also wrote readers, and it has a teacher's manual, and a manual of elementary instruction in object lessons.
  17. There's a great thread on vintage e-books for grammar, but I wanted to start one for any great treasures you come across in your search through google.books. I'm loving everything I've found by Wm. Henry Maxwell. Here's a list of links to some other vintage books I found worth taking another look at (note--most of these titles are general, as I just had my list of links not titles). Seven Little Sisters Who Live on the Round Ball That Floats in the Air Ten Boys Who Lived on the Road from Long Ago The Birds' Christmas Carol Christian Children Motherhood Elementary Geography Book by V.M. Hillyer Elementary Poetry Children's Picture book Would love to see what other great books have been found! It's my newest pastime ;) Link away!
  18. We were doing WWE but it just didn't suit ds. Any suggestions? I don't want anything overly complicated but rigorous enough. I'm finding I'm drawn to the simple things. We are using Webster's for syllable/reading work, HWoT cursive for writing(his request he loves HWoT), and FLL1(which we love). We do narration from SoTW but I was thinking perhaps it isn't enough at this stage. I would like the grammar and writing together but I do use and already like FLL. He does well on narration but dictation is harder as writing is still something he works hard on. Technically I consider him 1st grade although his abilities are a mix, understanding he gets on 2nd grade but writing skills on 1st.
  19. I found these texts that might be of interest for those looking for living books for CM. Or for those of us who can't seem to get enough of the things. (Is there a support group for vintage book addicts? Something like VBA that would meet in a library basement on Tuesdays?:tongue_smilie:) A New Geography for Children-Harriet Beecher Stowe Yes, that one. Very interesting. It's one of the first geography books for kids that begins with teaching kids how to map their own area. There are prominent references to God as the author of creation, and scripture passages. Some of the descriptive passages (icebergs really caught my attention) are very pretty. Like most old geographies, some names have changed. English Lessons for English People-Edwin Abbott Abbott Caught my attention because of the author. Flatland happens to be a story I really liked. This thing is intense. I wish it was complete, but it looks as if there are pages missing from the scanning. The section on poetics was interesting. A Child's History of England-Charles Dickens My main complaint is that like a lot of Dickens, it's too **** long. But again, some good descriptive language, which is sort of refreshing when it comes to history. Also, in that same vein, I recently got two books from our library-The Roman Republic and The Dark Ages by Issac Asimov that were good reads. I liked the first one enough to go look for it to purchase, but couldn't find it for less that 96$.:blink: I don't think my addiction is out of control, but I do admit to wondering if I eat peanut butter for lunch for six weeks could I save enough to get it?
  20. This is probably a stupid question, but... A lot of the vintage grammar and spelling books have kids copying huge paragraphs. Like one grammar text linked in another thread today has an Aesop's fable (I believe) that the child uses to learn what a sentence is, then they copy the whole thing, then the next lesson they're supposed to write that whole thing from dictation. Now my question is... If they started these texts in 2nd grade (or was it 3rd?), what did they do before these texts to prepare the children for this amount of writing? Did they just do a lot of copywork? That was a time when school started in first grade, right? I'm just trying to get an idea of the timeline and how they got the children's physical writing skills up to that level. :lurk5: We're using a vintage spelling book right now - Wheeler's Elementary Speller. We're doing ok with the copywork/dictation/memory, but it's on the edge of what my son can handle. I look at that grammar book I just mentioned, and I don't think he could do that at all. His hand would fall off. :tongue_smilie:Granted, we have fine motor issues here (not significant enough to be flagged for OT, but we're probably borderline... he's lacking in overall core strength... and strength in general). We've worked hard to get where we are. My younger sons might be able to do these things in 2nd grade, as their fine motor skills are a lot better. I'm just wondering what was the normal progression "back in the day". :)
  21. I know many of you hunt the vintage bookshelves for gems to use in the three R's. At the risk of creating a monster, how many other subjects do you use vintage resources for? Or find vintage books to be an additional resource? I'm in the middle of a massive download for a free text on drawing. I found it stunning in that it actually has "exercises" for drawing, and seems to actually teach it with some structure: The American Drawing Book by JG Chapman, 1847. What else is out there? History, of course. Science? Music? Geography?
  22. I can't find teacher/scheduling info in Wheeler's Graded Studies in Great Authors... it has lessons of 10 sentences each that are first copied and then written from dictation. It seems like you'd need to spend at least a few days on each lesson, right? :confused:My DS (8-soon-to-be-9) still struggles mightily with fine motor, so I'm thinking that I might break up the copywork over 4 days (5 sentences each day, doing the set of 10 twice) and then do the dictation piece as the "test" at the end of the week. Does this sound too complicated? easy? How do you use this (awesome, love it, my lit-loving kid is excited to start it!) resource?
  23. I downloaded the Webster's Speller off of Don Potter's website last night and in looking at the way it's laid out, I want to use it as my spelling curriculum. How would I go about this? Has anyone used this as their spelling or do I have to start a weekly lesson plan from scratch? :001_huh:
  24. A few months ago someone posted a link to a free ebook on google books used by HOD for spelling /dictation . Does anyone have that link or the name of the book?
