Re: Choosing Studied Dictation level

Any help on how to pick where to start Studied Dictation or pick a level? I'm sure it has been discussed so a link to it would be helpful.

Thanks

Choosing Studied Dictation level

One of my sons is a natural speller and has been doing the list in the back of Bigger. We will be starting Preparing and I am wondering how to handle the studied dictation. I read in one post that a mom had her child do the dictation at the top of each column until she found what level he needed to ...

In was a 2011 posting because Julie was getting organized for Riley's year of Preparing. I can't find the link aga...

Re: Week in Review: March 20-24, 2017

Julie, I have enjoyed looking through your year in Preparing with Emmett. I had to chuckle to my self on the science picture where he draws a magnifying glass in his picture. My son does that too. It cracks me up inside because I always think "why draw the magnifying glass? we know you are drawing a...

Re: Preparing for Preparing

Thank you both for your replies. I will be implementing those ideas. That helped me get out of my "stuck" mode. I like the idea of a notebook for vocab with alphabet tabs.

Thanks again :)

Re: Phonics for DS already reading

Hi there, I too have a ds who taught himself how to read and is an advanced reader with good comprehension. He is now 8. I will be backtracking on some phonics instruction for the benefit of spelling. He has been doing the studied dictations in Bigger this year and has had very slow progress. A big ...

DITHOR ?

We will be starting preparing in a few weeks. Also will be starting DITHOR 2/3. I see DITHOR is scheduled 3 days a week. So by my calculations a 15 day book would take 5 weeks to complete? Then the book project for the week after that is week 6. Correct?

Thanks

This year I printed papers, or had the boys do their work on loose papers. Then store them in plastic sleeves in a binder. So. much. clutter! I wa...
