We are doing lit. guides. We will do 2 this year along with the 7th and 8th grade read alouds for ECC. We are using All in One English which is going well. We only do a couple of pages a day and I am using the pre-test in the front as more of test after each section.rstine wrote:By the way, could I ask what else you are doing with your 7th grader? I know you mentioned ECC, but is he doing a literature guide, what grammar and math are you using, and has he adapted well to any new workload? I'm always interested in what others are using and how it's working out for them. Thanks so much.
For math he is finishing up 5B(by next week, we had done some lessons this summer but when we really started school in Sept. we have been doing 2 or 3 lessons a day). I am planning to move him into Saxon pre-algebra with the D.I.V.E cd, which has worked well for my daughter. I have him spend 1 hour a day usually in math.
The work load at first was a bit of a learning curve especially the science textbook. We are now almost finished with module 3 and he seems to be doing fine now. He is not a school lover, although he is very bright, so his goal each day of course to finish as quickly as possible, but he is working well most days. I just have to stay on him or he will be off playing with his pet or off in his room! He is a normal boy still!
Let me know if you have more questions.
