Bigger Unit 4 Day 2 Science - need help

Hi, We are having trouble identifying which of the worms pictured on p. 39 are the roundworms and which are the segmented worms. My dd drew a Red Lineus Worm as a roundworm and Googling is not helping me determine if that is right. It looks like leeches are segmented worms, so I am assuming the Limu...

Re: First day of school traditions....

I make signs for the new grades and let the girls decorate them, and then we take pictures of the girls holding them. My husband helped me make a treasure hunt for new school supplies this year, and the girls absolutely loved that. The older one had clues to follow and the younger one had a map. We ...

BHFHG Notebooking Week 1, Day 5 - Indies

Hi,

The notebooking assignment on Bigger Week 1, Day 5 says to label "the Indies". They are not identified on the map we are copying, but are we to assume we are labeling the West Indies?

Thanks,
Kathy

Re: Choosing a Science Text for Little Hearts

We used both (at the same time) and the 1st grade one has a bit more depth, but we liked them both. :D

HTH,

Re: End of guide certificate?

We set out all our work for the year and have a "Grandparents' Day" where the grandparents come over and look at all the projects, notebooks, and workbooks. I also type up a list of accomplishments for each kid and read some of those for the grandparents. I did use a K certificate for my older and p...

Re: Choosing Math

We have done both CLE and Singapore for 1st and 2nd grade. I like how CLE really gets them knowing their math facts and also provides a lot of review, especially for things like money and time, and I like how Singapore makes them think. I don't know how long we'll be able to continue this approach, ...

Re: Daily guide logistics: How do you keep yours?

Mine lays flat in the original binding on our school table. I use a red Post-It flag sticky that I move to the next day when I am done. I use smaller stickies for the Appendix items and move those as necessary. No matter what teacher manual I am using, I always use the larger red one to mark the cur...

Re: Sneak Peek #11: New World Geography Guide

Hi Carrie,

Would the Latin in the World History guide be in addition to another .5 credit of Spanish or in place of? We have to have 2 credits of the same language, so I wanted to clarify what you were thinking.

Thanks,
Kathy

Re: To skip a guide and Uncombine or not?

Could you use the 5th day in CTC-MTMM to keep moving forward and gain some ground there in finishing all 4 guides?

HTH,
