Re: guide differences

Oh good, thanks. If I go this route, I want the entire package, new guide and all. I'm just simply wanting one CHEAP to peruse it enough to see if this is the direction we'll go since samples never do a program justice. :) But I didn't want one so cheap or so old that it didn't really give me the gi...

Re: LA suggestion for 6th grader with no prior grammar?

Analytical Grammar is another one that begins late and learns it all within 3 years. And that IS their plan.

Re: "Trial" week before public school starts...help!

I don't want to hijack this post, and I can repost if necessary, but any suggestions for handling the lack-of-focus? Especially in light of following a "school hours" schedule? Brief breaks to run a lap around the house? My dd often asks to "just play for a few minutes" when we are in the middle of...

Re: "Trial" week before public school starts...help!

I read your "thanks" last night and was going to respond to it, but I see Julie beat me to it. What Julie said are the most important things to learn. Seriously. "Housework" should wait. It should be treated like you would treat it if you had a full time job outside the home. Another thing that was ...

Re: "Trial" week before public school starts...help!

I agree with Cici! Especially since one week is hardly time time to do anything much less see how things go. It takes at least 6 weeks to get into the swing of the curriculum itself and a full year for homeschooling in general if you're a newbie. I pray that you do speak to your DH and perhaps pour ...

Re: Expos

Julie, the weekly thing definitely makes sense as does all the tear up/tear down time. There's always issues that we don't realize, which is why I asked. And again, it all makes total sense.
