We used Adventures 2 years ago, and LOVED it, but last school year we decided to take a break from everything except for Reading and Math. Unfortunately the kids didn't make much progress! ...

Posted: Sat Jun 07, 2008 12:42 am A brand that I have found to work better than the Crayola or Rose art is Pure by Pentech. These seem to stay sharp longer and the leads don't break as bad when you sharpen them. they also have nice colors. I found mine at my local $1 store. They of course don't hav...

Teresa, I too understand what you are saying. I'm using CtG with a 13 yo and this has been one of our best years yet. I thought I should go with advanced textbooks to get ready for high school, and I did for algebra and math, but I am so glad I chose to try mfw. It has been so awesome to be done wit...

Dinner was very nice, we ended up having Spaghetti which went really well with the bread. The tablecloth, china, and ...

Re: Read Alouds Favorites?

Bronze Bow is one of my all time favorte books:-) I just had to sit back and imagine what it would be like having Jesus walking through my town, actually seeing him and hearing his voice.
