  1. Please help! :) My daughter will be starting high school in the next few months, and I am just not sure about what to do for our World History program. I have narrowed it down to 4...after researching just about every program out there. If you have any experience with these programs, please let me know what you loved and what you didn't like about them. We are doing Notgrass for middle school World History and my daughter enjoys it more than some other things we tried. She LOVES reading and writing, and so this is what I keep coming back to for her high school. I love the literature included and that each week she is to write an essay. I also like that it's a simple, one year world history program, and won't take years to do. History Revealed seems like my Ultimate History Program. I love the foundation of it, how it encourages the child to dig deep and study what they are interested in. I love that it's got lots of project ideas and that it covers each topic pretty in depth. I worry though that my daughter isn't a really motivated learner. She loves to read and write, but if she's not engaged in it, she will hand me garbage just to be done. I don't know if she will dive deep or just remain on the surface and do bare minimum to get done. If she approaches it that way, will the whole benefit of this program be lost on her??? I don't yet have any experience with the Classical Historian, other than it sounds great. Cathy Duffy rates it very highly, in her top 102 picks (Notgrass and History Revealed didn't make the list). I love the idea of starting a unit with a question and having her read and research in order to write an essay that makes her really analyze her answer. I also love the idea of doing Socratic Discussions as a main part of her history program. I am in process of learning how to do the Socratic Dialogue and think it's a fabulous way to learn. We LOVED Winter Promise for elementary US history, and so it is always in the back of my mind to try. Their Middle/High school level American History Programs look very intriguing to me (American Crossing and American Culture). I think we learned more in that elementary history class than any other program we have done....but there were many more books in that program than the high school ones. I just can't decide! Please share your experiences!!!! Thanks!
  2. So Winter Promise posted on Facebook that they are having a sale on the digital versions of their language arts......around $50 and the programs look really cute. I ordered LA 4 to try with my daughter for the rest of this year/summer. It looks really cute, but I'm wondering if anyone has experience with their LA? Would love to hear reviews/comments.
  3. Well, I am leaning towards MFW ECC, but don't want to miss out on some of the elements that have drawn me to WP. So, could you all help me brainstorm and figure out how I can add the things I like from WP into MFW? I want to incorporate pieces from CAW and AW into ECC. Which resources do you think I could easily fit into ECC without much tweaking? I love WP's exclusives so I want to use them where I can in ECC. I am not very familiar with ECC. For incorporating AW, does ECC already focus on the animals for a particular region? One of the things the children really wanted to do from WP was the HIH. They were drawn to the construction of the hideaways. I see in WP's AW they have a book about animal habitats. Do you know if it actually consists of building habitats that could satisfy the need to construct something to play inside of? So, for those of you familiar with both companies, can you help me decide which parts of WP I can fit into ECC? This would be for a 10yo, 8yo, 6yo, and 4yo. Thanks so much!
  4. The Winter Promise catalog came today. I don't even remember ordering it. :D I thought everything was settled for all subjects to be started in the fall. Then I opened the catalog. I'm specifically interested in the history and science. I would prefer something secular or Catholic. I can't find anything that I would call great in the secular realm. I've been given a line on a Catholic history program that is similar to TOG. But it isn't "tried and true" so I have a few reservations. It was what I planned on using until the catalog showed up in my mail box today. So if you use Winter Promise please tell me how Christian it is. Is it mostly secular or does it have just a dusting of religion? Or is it something along the lines of BJU or A Beka? Which would totally turn me off.
  5. I'm going to add some of their Children Around the World to our SL Core 5 for my younger one. She really digs the artiness of it and the non-fiction books. I wasn't planning on buying one of their full programs again, but now I'm completely thrown! My girls are 4 grades apart... I hadn't thought about using their Quest series for high school, but if I did that for my older one I could do the Sr. High level for her for 4 years (9-12) and the Jr High level for my younger for 4 years (5-8). I love the idea of doing one program for both, but there was no way I could do that if we stuck w/Sonlight. This could actually work! Has anyone used Quest for the Ancients or Quest for the Middle Ages, etc. for either level? Did you use their LA, too? I've only ever used their elementary stuff - I only buy their exclusives typically because I know about their shipping issues... however it says in the new catalog that they've moved their warehouse to a more central location for faster shipping. Maybe that will alleviate some of their problems. Tell me the good, the bad, and the ugly. :bigear:
  6. I am trying to decide what we are going to use for this coming school year. I feel like we are in a rut and I want to use a curriculum that I look forward to everyday. I was planning on using MFW ECC, partly because I thought it would be easiest to combine everyone. I would love to hear what you all think....
  7. I need help thinking through next year's curriculum, and would love to hear from those who have used TOG (Y2) and WinterPromise's Quest for the Middle Ages. I did a search of TWTM on this, and see lots of replies, but most are comparing ToG to SL or MFW, or to a different WP package. Here's the skinny: I am only homeschooling one child, but have been spending enormous amounts of time coming up with evaluations and comprehension questions and the like for this year's homeschooling. We are using Learning Adventures, and combining it with WP's Quest for the Ancient World. I'm even throwing in a little of the Illuminations curriculum. But I'm slowly going insane. I have browsed through TOG's sample unit, and love what I'm seeing. But is it worth the cost for one child? DS will be in 6th grade next year. We have a great library system, so I am confident I could borrow many of the books we need. Still... I would love some reassurance from those who have BTDT that it is worth every penny. Thanks in advance for your input.
  8. Could someone give me a review of Winter Promise Children Around the World? I would have a second grader going through the program. Is it fun and engaging? Are the celebration/family festive nights hard to plan for? I need a filler because I don't plan on starting the history rotation until 3rd grade where we will start with ancients ..this way my son will be old enough to really join in. I'm doing an intro to american history this year and need something for next year. Thanks alot! Sheryl
  9. For those who may remember my concerns about whether I should shorten up or quit WP AS 2 for now, due to a sensitive 6 dd (7 in Nov.) who doesn't like all the talk of wars, etc.... I wanted to share with you a story that she just wrote. The Old Women Once opon a time in a forest on the edge of a clering there was a small cottege were there lived a old women who was poor. She had little food. when winter came she ran out of food. So she whent out into the chilly night and froze thier, soiled (solid) like an ice cube and died. It was that very day that it was Crismas Eve. When her family came to visit the next day they foud no one in the house ecsept her cat and bird. When they foud out she was ded they wept. That was a very sad day for them. They were so sad that they kild thereselvs and that very day they died right next to the houes. The End I mentioned to my dd that this was a very sad story, and she told me that it was from reading Jason's Gold and the Fighting Ground and books like that. It is true that these books deal with suicide and death. I feel like I have chosen unwisely in what I have read to her. Meanwhile, my 8 ds and my dh have really enjoyed all the books from AS 1 and AS 2 that we have done as RA's. What should I do now? I can tell you that my dh has sat down and talked to her about how it wasn't good that the rest of the family killed themselves, and that that isn't what God would want us to do, etc. Now I am thinking that I need to go much gentler in curriculum for her than I have been. We are on week 16 right now of AS 2. I have MFW ECC and SL Core 2 waiting in the wings, and I have to say that I am even contemplating switching to TOG at some point. I just haven't felt totally confident in MFW, SL or WP now. MFW is very gentle, but my dh has often thought it to be too light for our dc. Sigh... Brenda
