Re: Writing question

I think as long as they are doing the work and see where they could improve . . . then you can do it however you want! For example, I've never given my DD a "grade". We just go over the checklist together. So there are probably a lot of right ways to get them the knowledge!! Just my 2 cents!

MtMM Indvidual State Study - which state to pick

Hi, we recently moved (ok, almost 2 years now) but my oldest wants to do our home state for the individual state study in MTMM. All of our family lives there, we go back very often. We are only one state away. Should I make my DD do the state we are in or let her do the one she wants? Does anyone ha...

Re: Ideas to shorten the week to four day schedule

Is Co-op all day? Could you do some when you got home? That's what I plan on doing. You could try to lengthen each day by a subject and see how he does. Maybe do storytime in the evening? Finish some work on Sat? Bigger is a teacher intensive year but over all takes about 2-3 hours a day. Reading Di...

Re: Dictionary recommendations? (PHFHG)

We have the Merriam Webster Children's Dictionary and it worked well for Bigger & Preparing. It had most of the vocab words. For several months prior to purchasing we checked dictionaries out of our library. There were 3 we could check out and a couple that were reference books that had to stay in t...

We are working on (one day a week at least, ha ha) on him just sitting down when i tell him to and listen to a story or do something! I may start LHTH after Christmas because then he'll be 4 b...

Re: New Math Reccomendation after Singapore 6A/6B

Thank you!! My DD does fine in Singapore but doesn't love it. I think it takes her a long time to do each day. Mostly because she needs to learn her math facts better I think. :)
With her, I am really thinking about switching also. I don't about the boys later. Again, thanks!

Re: New Math Reccomendation after Singapore 6A/6B

I am looking over math options for my DD. She is using Singapore 5B currently, and halfway through RTR. (She starts a new year every January, well thats the goal). She is 12 and we consider her just starting 6th grade this fall. So my question is, should we use Singapore 6A/6B next year in RevtoRev?...

My daughter really needs lines on the paper to write nicely so instead of writing directly into her student notebook she does it on notebook paper. First she traces the shape of the box onto the paper & cuts it out. Then writes her narration then glues ir in thr student notebook. This may help your ...

Re: Yet another written narration question (CTC)

My DD cuts lined paper to fit the box. She writes straighter with the lines. Then if she needs more room she writes on the back leaving a inch or so at the top to glue it in place.
