  • Re: stickies or other easy write-over item to use on the lesson plans?

    I know this isn't the intent of the OP's question,
    but

    As to a paper planner - I have had so much success with these - they're gorgeously fun and special and the subjects are customizable....

    started a topic Adjusting 3A for one day off

    Adjusting 3A for one day off

    Just wanted to share that Wednesdays are a great day to merge with Thursday/Friday in the 3A lesson plans if you need to adjust for a day out.

    We do a memory based morning program that requires us to do a 4 day week with MP. I found it very easy to adjust that day (we do our own math...

    Re: Math (again)

    "Since you're saying that R&S does explain the why behind the steps, I guess my question now is how explicitly does it do so? I don't feel I have enough background to be able to add it in on my own and some of my kids don't "get" implicit knowledge."...

    Re: Changes for next year?

    "We made the change last spring, I think. The reason was that we felt the GCB stories were too long and complicated for primary students. Cheryl Swope chose The Story Bible for her special-needs curriculum, and we fell in love with it for our primary program....

    Re: Placement

    Glad to hear it was a blessing - it's hard to know the spirit with which something is posted online.


    I wanted to chime in but am fearful to cause offense. I hope you can take what I reply with the spirit it is meant...and apply only if it fits. I...

    Re: Placement

    Hi,
    I removed it because Tanya is the master of recommendations and her rec was to consider different course levels. My post was all about staying with a core Lesson Plan. I didn't want to go against her suggestion because she's always been spot on for me.

  • A commercial for those considering a full core vs. subbing subjects

    As a fellow eclectic homeschooler who in years past had great intentions at the beginning of the school year and made plans, bought material, but got to mid-way and found things lacking only to quit or switch by Christmas - I can tell you MP can do amazing things.

    1) It will give you...

  • Re: SHould I wait to start Prima Latin?

    Prima Latina with the DVDs is so great for us. It's not nearly as difficult to teach as I thought. My dd loves the tutor and doing something on computer breaks up our morning a bit and gives me a mental "break" ( I don't tune out, just...

  • Re: Are the Student Guides Necessary?

    I'm no expert but by all means purchase what you can afford.

    We use the student guides, I found the Teacher Guides to be mostly answer keys. That said, there are a few subjects I feel I need both.

    I decided on the student...

  • Re: Preparing 4th Grade Student (3A core) for Greek Myths Test

    All great points. I definitely see the effort required for a student to both memorize and be generally familiar with the material. Two different skills.

    I appreciate the things brought up here.

  • Re: Preparing 4th Grade Student (3A core) for Greek Myths Test

    I know this was asked a while ago but I would just like to ask that when doing the re-write or making adjustments, this doesn't become a teaching to the test type workbook.

    Higher level skills are required...

  • Re: Cottage School Teaching Question

    Jen,
    I am going to respond more with some questions about your Latin teacher prep planning but I wanted to add here, that is awesome!

    Your time and efforts are such a blessing, I'm sure!

    Re: Core 3A

    "But I'm guessing moving her into R&S 6 would be silly with just one more year of it until moving onto pre-algebra."

    We did just that. Moved from Saxon to MP 6 which at the time used Rod and Staff 6 then COTR pre-algebra (it still might, idk)....

    Re: Math placement

    I would get the actual test packet that MP sells along with COTR. Take each test, and go through until he passes each one with a B or above. Then if he got through every one, I would place into Algebra. In my experience, that's awfully young but YMMV.
