    Literature Guide Vocabulary

    As Im preparing for next year, I am noticing a swap in how the teacher guides suggest doing the vocabulary. What are the pros/cons of having your student read and define with a synonym as they go along verses looking the vocab up before reading? It seems more fluid to define ahead of time like it...

  • I have a 1st and 2nd and do a 4 day week. I am blessed that we attend a classical enrichment program on Fridays where they do Geography, History, Bible, Creative Writing, Logic, Music, Latin, Science, and Art.

    Thank you for the feedback. It is greatly appreciated. I have noticed the things you mentioned when allowing her to do things on her own. Transition from sentence to sentence is difficult. She can do it when she slows down but I will be more hands on. Thank you for all the help. I am not a teacher...

    Oh, this is way better! Thank you. And for the suggested flow of it. I love the idea of having them work on the same one each week. I will re-order.

    Tanya, I know it has only been 4 months since you last commented, but just wondering if you had a better idea if MMC for 3rd would be available for the fall. We have loved this resource and it has been so helpful. If not, Enbateau, where do you find the resource you mentioned above? I ordered 3rd...

  • Understood Betsy comes to mind. It's a little post pioneer, where in some countries and places there are cars and such. But she goes to a place where horse and buggies are still the main mode of transportation. Lots of stories from pioneer life and this family still does a lot of their own "pioneering."...

  • Thank you ladies for the great advice. It seems we are doing it all pretty well. We came from LoE for phonics so both my girls understand syllabication pretty well and can identify how many are in a word. But sometimes I even struggle with the “rule” of where the break may be. For example, flake...

    We did this this year and it has been great. We started spelling 4 weeks before anything else because honestlly, it is easy for my girls to be self-led for the most part.
