Re: Abeka language or Rod and Staff?

You can use your own english and disregard the schedule that's in place in the guides.
It won't affect a thing!

Rod and Staff english ?

I have to say that language arts is my favorite area to teach. We do stuff orally, on the white boards, play games etc.. It's never just an issue of giving assignments and checking work. I love it too much to leave it at that. LOL However, I was thinking about making our Rod and Staff english more i...

Re: Combine/Separate Verdict is in!

What a blessing to have the input from your husband! It's priceless and you'll feel better knowing the decision was a joint venture.

Re: What does "Masterly Inactivity" look like in your home?

Well, for our kids it can look like any of these:

Writing

Drawing

Piano playing

Reading

Outside looking for insects to add to their terranium

Playing with K'Nex, Legos, Snap Circuits

And on and on.

We used Abeka's Handbook for Reading with both our children and it
worked well for them. I highly recommend it!
