tracigirl Posted December 5, 2011 Share Posted December 5, 2011 This is my 5th week of homeschooling my 2 boys (2nd and 4th grade) and I still am not sure how it is going. I love it but feel like some things just aren't right, but really have nothing to base it on. We are using WWE 2 for both boys ( we started WWE 4 with my 4th grader but it seemed too advanced so switched). We are doing ok with WWE 2 but I wonder if they should also be learning how to write (paragraphs, intro, conclusion, ect) or if that is covered later in WWE? Also, we are using basic Winston grammar for both boys. They are doing good with it but this week we are starting to learn about modifiers. This seems advanced for a second grader, but again, I have nothing to base that opinion on. I got on the Winston grammar website and it indicated that abstract grammar should begin in 5th grade. I decided to print off review worksheets for this week because I believe it could only help, but I am not sure how far to go in the Winston grammar book, or if i finish it if i should go up to the next level or stick to review of the basic book. Honestly, my second grader seems to "get it" more than my 4th grader. Any opinions? When I talk to friends in ps schools they say their children can label the entire sentence, so that contradicts the abstract thinking statement by Winston. So I guess my question is should I continue on with the basic grammar book, where to go from there for next year, and should we add in more writing or is WWE 2 all they need? Thanks so much for any feedback. As much as I love this new journey, I can't help but to doubt myself sometimes. I don't want them to miss something because I don't know what I'm doing :-).
