  2. My dds (13 & 12) will do medieval next year. Could you please suggest some books that would be good to read, I'm mainly looking for novels. They are above average readers, but so are most of your kids, so this is a good place to ask. We'll be using "the history of the medieval world" (SWB) as a spine, which worked well this year for doing ancients. A side questions, does anybody know if she's planning to keep writing on this series? Any suggestion would be appreciated!
  3. Hi Lori. I was wondering if you could explain how you went about spreading out the Spielvogel text for World History. Did you use other resources as well or just the text. And what did you do when you hit the US History era...what about Gov/Econ??? I have read how to do it in TWTM, but it seems like a lot of different main texts once you hit those final two years. My original plan was to cover Geography for 9th, World History overview for 10th, US HIstory for 11th, Gov/Econ for 12th...this is the recommended order according to my state's Ed. Agency and it's what the college like to see...I'm reconsidering though... I've been trying to decide on how to cover World History for my ds...we are getting burned out on Geography and are thinking of streamlining that course and starting on Ancients now rather than waiting until next fall. I would also like to go ahead and begin the Great Books list as suggested in TWTM...we would just narrow down our selections. I would like to follow TWTM, maybe covering ancients quicker (wrapping that up by next fall) and then moving at a normal pace for the three remaining divisions...Middle Ages, Early Modern, Modern. We have covered Ancients pretty thoroughly before, so I feel an abbreviated coverage (or at least quicker coverage) would be fine. Suggestions? Also, if you were to choose...say...4 works from the Ancients reading list, which ones come to mind? I am thinking of Gilgamesh, either the Iliad OR Odyssey, Aristophanes, Sophocles... Thanks! Robin
  4. I am growing slump-shouldered over the political history in SOTW 4. Does anyone know of a good read aloud or even picture book on the ADVANCES of the modern world: technology, medicine, votes for women, etc? We need relief from wars, famine, expansions, and treachery.
  5. I am looking for all of my kiddos. I need to get some of the redundancy out of our math lessons! Ds's K and 1st -- I would like the games to be something they can play together with me if possible. 4th grader and 8th grader anything you can recommend would be awesome! Dd 4th is good in math. No issues. Dd 8th is getting there. She had a HUGE math phobia we are still working on overcoming, that is why we are doing Lials BCM this year. So far so good. She is gaining the confidence she needs and doesn't dread math anymore! She should be done with this and move onto VideoText algebra something late winter/early spring. So anything pre-algebra to Algebra 1 for her would be awesome if anything exists!! (free online is the best ofcourse but any recommendations would be awesome!!) TIA! :001_smile:
  6. What cirriculum are you using that works? I will be bring my 9 yo son home from ps in january and am now in the planning stage. Not new to hsing. I taught my dd 5th-7th years ago but she was a VERY different type of learner.. and human being :) I am looking into Right Start Math or MUS because I like the manipulatives and games. I know RS is very teacher intensive but everything will be that way because of his personallity and learning style...so im ok with that. Any other suggestions? For history we will be doing SOTW, which I already own, with lots of supplimentation. For science, I think we will do unit studies according to his interest...he LOVES science more than any subject and is naturally very curious about the way things work, how things grow, etc...so this will be a breeze. For language arts, I have looked into FLL and WWE and if I go that route, we will probably start at the beginning with both, as this is his weak area. But Im open to other suggestions. Since this is where he needs the most help, I want to make sure Im using something compatable to his learning style that he will enjoy. Lots of reading (history, science, RA, and books of his choosing). He is not into reading. He likes browsing through books/magazines with pictures of skateboarders, bmx'ers, and motocross of all things....well, that is his "thing". But he wont really read any of it unless we do it together. He would rather be "doing" all of those things in the pictures. :auto: I want to just hit the basics to start and really focus on Reading, spelling (need advice here...his spelling is appalling) and writing skills. Am I missing anything? I own a copy of TWTM but need to find it. The entire TWTM cirriculum worked well with my dd (she loved Latin and Logic-which my son would NOT be so thrilled about doing) but I dont think it would be so suited to my son. Because he is a Kenesthetic learner and becasue he is a boy, I will have to modify a lot. Any suggestions for cirriculum, structuring of lessons, school days, tricks that worked for your K. learner, etc...really ANY ADVICE AT ALL, would be most welcome. Thank you!!
  7. Does anyone have good recommendations for books without words or with words on only a page or two? I really like hearing my two year old explain these stories to me. Off the top of my head I can think of the following: Clementina's Cactus by Ezra Jack Keats Good Dog Carl Flotsam by David Wiesner Goodnight Garden Gnome Are there any good ones that I should check out?
  8. I'm wondering how all of you approach history/lit sequencing for grades 9-12. We've been thinking about American History/Lit or a Middle Ages History/Lit course for 9th grade. When I look at the lists I've compiled for each potential course, it seems to me that the middle ages study (which includes some AO Year 7 recommendations and a few things from Year 8) seems better suited to a 9th grader. Why am I feeling like a high school level American History course might be better in the last two years of high school? Is it because of the seriousness of much of the American Lit I've been considering? I've tried to come up with some light books to include, too, but I am still left feeling like it might be better to wait for high school level American History until 11th grade followed by government and economics in 12th. What say you? My daughter finds both book lists I am working on appealing in their own way.
  9. hi guys, what are you guys using for critical thinking? any workbooks you like or totally dislike? or do you even feel it's necessary? my daughter is working on the 2nd grade level. thanks. :bigear:
  10. For our upcoming year, we'll be using the following novels: 7th grader ~ The Children's Homer The Golden Goblet The Bronze Bow The Eagle of the Ninth Archimedes and the Door to Science 5th grader~ Blackships Before Troy The Wanderings of Odysseus In Search of a Homeland (Lively) Gilgamesh (McCaughrean) Also the following non-fiction: A Little History of the World Augustus Ceasar's World The Story of the Greeks I'm looking for pick-up and go study guides, primarily for the fiction books, but also for the non-fiction if they exist. I like guides with a vocabulary assignments. I've already checked Progeny Press and they have only one. Any suggestions? Thanks, Stacy
  11. After SOTW-4, anyone add a little current history (1995-present)? I'd like to add a little bit of current history after the end of SOTW-4. If someone else already has this all planned out, then I'm all for not re-inventing the wheel Besides, if I plan it myself, I'm sure to over-do & make my son groan. I'd like to stick to a SOTW-4 chapter sized summary of the last 15 years, and cover ds's lifetime (he was born in 1995). Julie
  12. We have not studied primarily geography thus far. I am looking at Trail Guide to World Geography and US Geography. What do people think of these programs? How about Runkle Geography? Thanks for your input.
