Re: CTC-The Story of the Ancient World question

I'm just getting ready to do CTC. This makes me sad as I'm not sure I'll catch them and I don't want to teach biblical inaccuracies:(

Re: Dictation only for spelling?

I'm doing just dictation this fall. WE've done years of AAS. She knows all the rules, she never uses them in her writing. Too much time and money for too little results. Her spelling improved this year as her reading took off. But again, not using the rules, just getting closer to the actual word. I...

Re: What credits to include with WG?

If you're already switching everything around, I"d probably keep Health with Biology from the WH guide and do logic the next year in place of health. I don't think it'd mess anything up and it'd keep the work load the same, just swapping a half credit for a half credit.

Re: About to give up, and send to PS

I quit! I sent my kids to Christian school. I have 2 back home now. I can tell you, it's great in many ways. But awful in others. But, as I said, my kids go to a Christian school. With the way the world is, please, please don't send your kids into the public system. If you'd like to PM, I'm open. I ...

Re: English has become over her head

I wonder if I should buy the workbook and just go over the worksheets up to where we are? We're half way through chapter 6. I think I'd restart the chapter in the fall, after doing the reviews for the previous chapters.

English has become over her head

My 10 year old, 4th grade daughter is doing level 4. The last while, we've been pushing through, but not really understanding. Should I put it away and pick it up in the fall, when she'll be closer to 11 or how should I handle this?

Re: Conference schedule

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'll never see them.

Maybe they'll do more conferences once all the guides are done and she's less busy.

Re: Annotated literature books multiple students

That's a possibility, thank you.

Carrie and Julie, I know you both have a few to go through them. What are your plans?

Annotated literature books multiple students

Part of the beauty of literature based curriculum is how reusable it is:) Will I need to buy the lit packages 6 times? Or, how what's the best way to handle all the annotating when you have multiple students?

Re: About to begin Preparing - question about Deluxe Package

It really is a great part of Preparing. All the drawing is in there. I too feel it's preparing kids for CTC. They may not be ready for the workload without it.

Re: Helping Maintain Curriculum Through Daily Use

I was debated by my crumpled cover when I dropped my first guide, the first week I had it:( I put them in page protectors in a large binder that colour coordinates with the guide. I really like it!

Help with student notebook pages

My WG daughter is having a hard time. Her scholar prisma colour pencil crayons don't get dark enough when she colours. She wants to write in pencil so she can erase, but, it's really light and it erases the sheet colour when she does erase. When she writes with pen, it gets all smugged. Her biggest ...
