  1. We are 16 weeks into the Purple Student Book of Grammer for the WTM. Besides thinking that the book is hard to follow visually, I am very happy with the content. However, I keep coming across circumstances in which the answers don't seem correct based off of previous lessons. Is there anywhere I can go to verify answers or ask questions? Would this forum be the place to do this?Thank you

  4. Hi, I want to buy FLL 3 Instructor book so my question is that are all the contents from FLL 3 Student book included in FLL 3 Instructor book? Can I just buy FLL 3 Instructor book as it's parent intensive so can we do most of it orally? Recommendations and experiences please! :confused1: Thanks!
  5. Hello Forum Folks, The Well-Trained Mind team is committed to helping you and your children navigate the wilds of education...whether through these forums, our books and audio products, our online courses, or our website.

How do you use streaming video content in your educational efforts? Do you watch videos about homeschooling, parenting, skil
  6. In the book she explains how you could go about this. Does anyone have experience making it work? It seems like most large families who are following a classical path use a more laid out curriculum such as TOG, Biblioplan, etc. Any experience following the WTM plan with children in multiple levels?
  7. I guess I don't fully understand this and was hoping for input. The WTM has a list of literature that corresponds to the historical time period (for example, this year was ancients for us, so we have read a lot of Greek myths and books about Egypt so far). I have done some of those books as read alouds and some I assigned to my oldest for reading. How do you do this? Part of what I struggle with is that my youngest doesn't get assigned reading from the list yet due to reading level. So I don't want to make them all assigned reading because there are too many and because I want him to also ben
  8. Hi everyone, Check out these two FREE webinars for lots of helpful, practical tips on teaching addition and subtraction!

Addition: January 5th, 8 PM Eastern time Subtraction: January 17th, 8 PM Eastern time Sign up here!

  9. Hi all, I knew you'd want to know that we're offering two brand-new audio lectures by Susan Wise Bauer, recorded at homeschooling conferences: Burning Out: Why it Happens and What to do About it Every home school family finds itself in the doldrums occasionally. But when the doldrums last for weeks or months, it’s time to consider the possibility of burnout. In this seminar--drawn from years of personal experience with effective home education and burnout--Susan defines burnout, investigates the elements that make burnout more likely, and offers a series of practical, experience-tested
  10. This is our first year using MFW, (currently half way through ECC with a 6th and 8th grader), and our first full homeschool year. After reading WTM, I'm still not sure about going out on my own for next year. Has anyone used MFW, (or anything similar) and added anything from WTM to beef it up, and/or make it more of a classical study? My 6th grader wants to use MFW again next year (Exploration to 1850), but I'm worried it won't be enough for her. Would it be more trouble than it's worth? Should I just branch out "on my own" and follow the WTM guidelines? We are currently using: Saxon/LO
  11. Hey y'all, Just a quick reminder that Peace Hill Press has lowered its prices by 20% on nearly everything in the store...and we've lowered the prices on our already-discounted "School in a Box" kits by 10%. No need to enter coupon codes, etc; the prices are already cut. This sale continues through Monday at noon Eastern time. Justin at PHP
  12. My homeschool group started a co-op four years ago, which we've been part of since then. This coming school year, I decided to make a change and try Classical Conversations (it's new to our area). I will have three children (ages 6,8,11) in Foundations and I will be an Essentials tutor (teaching my 11 year-old and 1-2 other students - it's a small group). Now it turns out that our homeschool group co-op is going in a whole new direction and will be doing Odyssey of the Mind over this next school year. I am wondering if it's realistic...or even healthy...to attempt to do both, since tha
  13. I've been reading the WTM for the first time since I started homeschooling and was shocked to see that I should be teaching logic. I had never known it was a subject to teach and was not taught it in my own education. Then there have been some threads on here recently about Logic. Hmmm...I need to do this, but how? Can you help me? So, I have a 6th grader and 3rd grader. Neither of which have done anything from Critical Thinking company or Fallacy detective, or any of those others I've seen mentioned, Logic Liftoff, Orbiting with Logic, etc. Where do I start? What is my goal? I unde
  14. Are you planning for this fall? Do you have students in 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th grades? If so, then you need this talk by Susan Wise Bauer: The Well-Prepared Student: How to Get Ready for the High-School Years Susan Wise Bauer gives clear, specific directions for helping a middle school student prepare, academically and practically, for high school. http://www.welltrainedmind.com/store/well-prepared-student.html In this session, learn what and how to teach your child in grades 5 through 8--before that ninth-grade year begins. How can you be sure that you’re handling the transition from
  15. Which is your favorite edition of The Well-Trained Mind? I like certain parts of each one, but my favorite is the first one. I own the second edition and have the first and third ones checked out from the library right now ... just for comparison. I like how the rhetoric stage is mapped out the best in the first one. Which is your favorite and why?
  16. Background: -Like many here, I have been intrigued with TOG since I first heard about it, not too far into our homeschooling journey which began 3.5 years ago when my oldest (then in the middle of 1st grade) requested that I homeschool her. I have spent hours reading most of the TOG threads here and just returned from the Great Homeschool Convention in Long Beach where I heard Marcia Somerville (TOG creator) speak - I went to both of her workshops and that's what renewed my interest in the curriculum. At the same time, I also thoroughly enjoyed Susan Wise Bauer's workshops, and was encou
  17. I am on the fence about whether to follow TOG Year 1 as written or painstakingly rearrange it to go chronologically (an option, though not the preferred one, presented in the TOG Yr 1 introduction), so that I can continue to use SOTW as our spine (even though TOG only lists it as an alternate) because I really enjoyed all 4 years of SOTW with my oldest (following WTM) and want to do it again with my younger two. The only problem is that it's not a perfect fit, as TOG doesn't always line up with SOTW, even when rearranged chronologically. Any other input on meshing Tapestry of Grace with t
  18. Going into the logic stage, if one has followed WTM through 4th is one plenty well prepared? And -- especially if WTM provides an excellent foundation -- are there any areas of WTM you wish you'd followed more closely, or that are likely to get forgotten/skimmed? or that you found needed adapting? thanks so much in advance! ETA: also anything you'd add, or leave off ...
  19. I'm heavily considering TOG to use with my upcoming 5th, 3rd, and 1st graders, having just finished our first four-year cycle with TWTM / SOTW but I am not sure I can justify the cost and labor for just humanities (history, geography, literature, writing) when we also want to cover the other classical subjects: math, science, grammar, handwriting/typing, spelling, Latin, Spanish, Intro to Logic (last two are for my oldest). With such a focus on one area, I'm concerned about it swallowing up the time energy that needs to be distributed among the others. And it sounds like a scheduling nig
  20. Science is the one thing I'd like to do with all my kids (since it's not working out to do history together due to mature themes of SOTW 4), so I would really appreciate any input on how best to do it. To stay on the WTM cycle, I would like to do a semester of chemistry and then a semester of physics (physical science). We would have done chem this past year but I delayed it because I thought Apogolia's chem/phys book was coming out this fall, and now it turns out that it won't be until next year. I've read through many threads and checked out samples. The contenders seem to be NOEO,
  21. I have two girls & we are new to WTM. We have our curric. up & running & is going well. I was thinking of introducing Latin for my 8 yo, using GSWL. We have only just begun to study grammar (1st language lessons book 1) so would it be a better idea to wait until she has a better grasp on English grammar? I am wondering if that is the reason Latin is introduced in G3, or if it is another reason?
  22. Did I read somewhere that SWB was working on a new edition of TWM? Any ideas when this might be coming out (if of course I did not imagine this?):tongue_smilie:
  23. I've been using TWTM since we abruptly began homeschooling two years ago in the middle of my oldest's first grade year. I checked it out of the library and kept it the whole semester until the newest edition of TWTM came to my mailbox. It was a Godsend and I have been pleased with using it (and tweaking it according to what fits us), but my youngest child - my only boy and the one who has the strongest personality (highly structured and outgoing) is entering K this fall, and so I'm wondering it if I should try MFW. I'm leaning toward it because I like the idea of combining both WTM style
  24. My daughter 6 just finished ETC7 and has started Spelling Workout A and seems to be doing fine. But then everywhere and everyone seems to be using AAS and I dont know much about curriculum yet since its my first year and I'm just following SWB recommendations in the WTM. So since I'm new to this I'm thinking I'm missing out on something good and maybe the right way to learn spelling is to learn the rules. Is that right? should I ditch Spelling workout and switch over to AAS? Will my daughter be somehow behind or at a disadvantage if she continues with spelling workout? How come a lot of y
