    Cheryl you have me curious about SC4

    Hi Cheryl,

    We're finishing up lunch so I decided to see what was new at the forums. You made the comment on a thread this morning that SC4 is going to be an intro to Mythology and Mammals study. Will the study of Mythology include D'Aularies Greek Myths?
    Also, What is the Animal Kingdom?
    is part of Mammals study for Classical core and in the SC3 Science Enrichment Set. Will the study of Mammals in SC4 be like the SC3 Science Enrichment Read Aloud with lots of books or like the Classical Core?

    Myths-
    No D'Aulaires' Greek Myths yet.

    Mammals-
    It is drawn from the MP 3 Mammals set.
    (Unlike SC 3, there are no extra smaller science books. This is a more concentrated *multum, non multa* approach, as SC 4 is our first SC Grammar year in science. You will see this approach throughout SC 4.)

    I hope to post a full SC 4 book list next week, if all goes well!

        Cheryl, will SC 4 have History, like Ancients along with Mythology? I'm just curious and looking forward to seeing the booklist for SC4! Thanks, Lillian

          Some ancient history is embedded in Myths. And some US history is taught with States & Capitals. All is in Enrichment, but the good news is that I think we can keep it all in the Curriculum Manual. The manual will be thick, more like SC 2, because I'm trying very hard to minimize the need for extra teaching books.

          I was away again the past 4 days doing little else but polishing SC 4, so I'll hide from the forum now till Monday. The sun is shining here in Missouri, a long walk is beckoning, and my daughter has some Mom & me catching up to do. ☺

          I hope to post more next week, so everyone can see! I love this level and wish I had it years ago. I hope everyone else will love it too.

              When Stella did D'Aulaires Greek Myths I read them all aloud. Clara absolutely loved them. As you may recall, she is the child who hates picture books and will not let me read her the enrichment materials. I would love to put her into SC4 with everything except Prima Latina (we do a different Latin program), and hope that you can find a way to work it in. Myths are so much fun! I actually had the girls act out some of the myths with stuffed animals and they both still remember them really well because of this. I would be so thrilled to put Clara back in a full curriculum instead of all of the piecing together I have been doing this year. SC1 worked so well and was as easy to implement as anything would be with a special needs child. Actually, I will probably just buy SC4 for next year even if it does not include D'Aulaires since Clara has already heard them all, but they were really fun. How about D'Aulaires Norse Myths instead?!!! :-)

                Sorry to reply twice, but I just wanted to say that States and Capitals is a great program, and I think that some fun things can easily be added to it to make it memorable for SN kids. It seems like it will be so fun when your youngest starts to do some of the things your older already did! Also, we have Mammals already because I was going to do it for science this year, and I am so glad I decided to do a different science and wait. Both girls can do it together and enjoy it a lot (I will obviously need to add to it for Stella, but that is fine).

                  Thanks for all of the suggestions, JeJe. Rest assured, we teach those fabulous Greek myths in SC 4, just not yet from D'Aulaires' book, flash cards, etc.

                  "Multum non multa" is the hallmark of SC 4. Stay tuned ....

                    Do you have a list of multisensory ideas you use with S&C with your children? We're about ready to start that program with our boys, and I wanted to implement some things. I'm NOT good at coming up with those things on my own.

                      Hi, Dianna.

                      I'm not JeJe, but I would recommend adding this book. The idea was suggested by Colomama. Each time a state is discussed, the student adds a sticker to its corresponding geographical location. You can also play games with the flash cards in your States & Capitals set.

                        If they like drawing, maybe have them draw states in a tray of sand as they study them, marking where the capital is? They could also make their own flashcards.

                          I am sorry to take so long to reply. I have not been on the Forum in more than a week (WHAT!?!?!?!). Stella does not have any special needs so we used States and Capitals as written. We are using Apologia Swimming Creatures for science and it has a lot of hands on activities. We are doing it more for Stella than for Clara, but she loves making the playdoh figures and we are about to have to buy them each a goldfish so that should be fun for them. I am also not good with coming up with the multi-sensory activities, and that is why I am kicking myself for not just using SC2 or SC3 this year. We are doing SC4 as written (minus any read-aloud picture books because Clara thinks that they are for babies and will not listen to them - sometimes she is difficult in strange ways). Cheryl has such great ideas. Oh, actually I do have one idea for a multisensory thing that I did with Stella. We bought Sequence States and Capitals and Scrambled States of America and played them. The girls love it when we play games for school!
