Re: To upgrade or not? ECC

As long as you have all the books that came with the original TM, you have a great program and the new consumable materials are compatible with the older TMs (first grade is an exception to this). Of course, the current TMs have some great updates, and schedule the most up to date editions of the bo...

Re: Chemistry in elementary or middle school needed?

Our goal for science in the Family Learning Cycle is to allow children to explore the many areas of science before they enter middle school. We like to expose children to different fields of science in relation to what is being studied in history or Bible each year. Here is an overview of the scienc...

Re: Writing With Skill Question

There are a few pages within the Student Workbook that can be written on. Since there are so few, we recommend completing those lessons on a piece of paper so that this resource can be used over for another child. If I had 3 children using the same program I would consider one additional copy so tha...

Re: New School Year Hopes and Dreams

I'll get us started. We began homeschooling because we lived in a large city with a terrible public school reputation. I was a fairly new believer and wanted the best for my children, but homeschooling was new (and weird) to me. My daughter was in private school for her first 3 years, but transferre...

Stress … that little thing that creeps in and tries to take control. If we’re not careful it will sneak in and attack without us even knowing it. Can I be honest for a moment? I like to be in control. I like order and everything to be in its place. I like to have a plan and while it can change (if I...
