We just finished Adv. There will be writing in the Primary Lang. Lesson book if you are using it. It'll be copy work, but also a friendly letter at some point. For the History notebook you'll be assembling, I had my boys write the number of sentences per grade they were in. So, my third grader had t...

2nd grade and RTR

I have a question regarding my 1st/2nd grader (7 yob). He is still working on his first grade phonics and Bible Notebook. It will take us another semester at least to finish, although he is really starting to take off in reading. So as far as the history notebook, I think I will not have him write ...

I will tell you that I joke with my friends about this. I tell them that my secret reason for homeschooling is that I can NOT get up for a school bus. Around here the buses come for the kids at 6:30, and that is just daunting to me. I'm so not a morning person. So, our day is this, I get up around 8...

Re: Adventures history ?s independent reading?

Posted: Thu May 31, 2007 8:46 am We are finishing Adv. now. It's been our BEST homeschool year. It's just been so much fun, and we have learned so much. I love that history book.

The library hasn't been that bad at all. I take one day every other week, go online, put a request in for the next two weeks worth of books. We go to the library once a week anyway, so we just pick them up. I love that we pay 1/2 of what Sonlight is, and use our tax dollars instead! :) I will say th...

Thank you all so much!!! Yes, this is new territory for us. He has ALWAYS grasped Math so easily. I've not really ever had to get too creative with him. My second son, yes, we take the Singapore books VERY slowly. So, I'm used to it. Not with Curtis though. So, I guess that's why I started second gu...

I'll just ditto all the other ladies. Looked at others, but I love having everything already scheduled and laid out for me like MFW does for us. Compared to other curriculmns I find that MFW is soooo flexible. My husband's days off or Tues and Weds., so we do half days on those days, then make up fo...

That is great, Jenni!! I really thought those questions were going to come up during my pregnancy with Colton. We read a couple of very very innocent books to tell them I was pregnant, but they didn't question further. I do want to be the first to introduce this all to them, I just wasn't sure about...

Today was awesome! We are wrapping up week 2 of Adv. Today, we made the three ships out of aluminum. First, we read a book basket book, Picture book of Christopher Columbus. I love that every book recommended has something to learn from it. The information isn't exactly the same in every recommended...
