Re: Continue Singapore 6A?

Thank you ladies, your suggestions were helpful. I decided to take a break from Singapore and have her work on the percentage book from Life of Fred. We were able to check it out from our library and she is enjoying it. We may go back to Singapore 6A or we may just continue Life of Fred until our sc...

Continue Singapore 6A?

Okay mamas, I need some 'seasoned' support or advice. My second child, my daughter, is currently in 6th grade and has been doing Singapore math since 2nd grade. Her older brother did the same thing and was able to complete 6A before the end of his 6th grade year and continuing onto Saxon 8/7 in 7th ...

Re: Moving and Trying to Keep up with School

Oh Ladies!! I can't express how much your words have helped me already. Renee, my husband is so quick to want to try and 'fix it' when I try and talk to him. You 'empathizing' with me is exactly what I needed. Being back together again after 10 months must be so so sweet. And Melissa, this last year...

Re: New fun products!

We love Jim Weiss' CD's. My 9 year old and 7 year old listen to his stories again and again. My husband and I enjoy them too. Great for long drives or while playing Legos.

Re: Olympics studies

I have printed out and am prepping to do a lapbook from Currclick on the Olymipics. We've only done one other lapbook ever, but I thought it would be a fun way to get into the Olympics this summer and sneak in some writing too ;) . Plus it's on sale right now for only fifty cents! It's written by A ...

Re: I had no idea!

We just finished ECC today and it was an awesome year for our whole family. I was teaching 1st also and had a 2 year old "helping" out, so we did skip some things. I'm already looking forward to the next time around when I have an 8th, 6th and 1st grader ;) . I do wish we had played the geography ga...

Re: Apologia Physical Science Coop?

We have been part of a co-op for the Jr. Apologia Astronomy this year, and it has been nothing short of awesome. My friend who started it has one child and wanted to do the curriculum with him so she asked if anyone would be interested in doing it with them. Through word of mouth she ended up with 3...

Thank you

We've been using MFW from the start and currently have 2 kiddos old enough for school (1st and 3rd/ECC). I have kept with Marie's suggestions for language arts and math and it has worked very well for our family so far. I have never been a strong speller, and starting Spelling Power this year honest...

Just placed my order for our 4th year with MFW

I am so excited and feel so blessed. The Lord answered my prayer 4 years ago at our local homeschool conference. I walked in and became instantly overwhelmed by the options. I felt that the Lord was asking me to homeschool my soon to be kindergartner, something I had NEVER considered until it was ti...

Re: Where to start Singapore for my 2nd grader?

Thank you all so much. I will order 1A today. I feel so much more comfortable with that. I want to give my ds encouragement to love math and I think having things easier for him rather than more difficult will certainly do that. I also think that starting from the beginning will help me understand a...

Re: math activities in First?

Thank you for asking this Alison! We just purchased 1st this weekend and I've been pouring over the TM. Anyone who is worried about there not being enough math in 1st is crazy (or hasn't looked at the TM). I'm excited to be able to teach so much math in such a hands on way. And... thanks Crystal for...

How we organized K this year...

I'm no expert... far from it (this being our first year homeschooling). Someone (I think it was from here) asked awhile ago about organizing K, and was looking for some ideas. I wanted to share a post from my blog that I've been meaning to write for quite awhile and finally got around to. It details...

Re: I wish people could see the book basket

I just wanted to mention that our library is also very small, and often doesn't have the exact books that MFW recommends. BUT... I found that I can go on-line, about 3-5 days before we start a new unit, and find the books at other libraries in our county, then have them sent to our local library for...
