    Default SC 3 Tentative Booklist

    MP has not had time to check availability of each book or to make the list pretty, but Tanya said I can share it anyway!

    As always, do not be intimidated by the seemingly large number of components. Everything is organized into teachable plans. The guide provides 34 weeks of easy-to-follow lessons with a complimentary 8-week review. Choose the open-and-go 4- or 5-day routine. You can teach all of the pre-integrated skills, concepts, and literary studies week by week, one day at a time.



    I hope to have all components to the formatter/printer by Dec. 31. With a belated Happy Birthday to howiecram's son, and an early Merry Christmas to Colomama's, here is your list.

    So sorry I almost ruined your Thanksgiving by putting Cheryl off! I'm glad she posted for you. I'll try to be more efficient from now on!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Two questions about latin...

    I already have the dvds, will those be useful? The dvd's aren't on the SC3 curriculum list. I'm thinking maybe the pace won't match?

    Will latin start at the beginning of the year or second semester? I know it's recommended to have a very firm grasp of phonics before starting latin.

    My sons reading and phonics has exploded. The daily phonics lessons in SC2 have become 'boring' according to him. I would start him in SC3 phonics if it were available. He read the entire Little Bear book for SC Storytime Treasures. So i'm trying to increase the challenge, just slightly.

    I'm trying to decide whether to go with the Classic Core latin or SC3 latin.

    Yes, the DVDs for Prima Latina will be useful in SC 3. I just didn't want to overload the expense of SC 3, because the DVDs are not necessary until SC 4.

    We begin Prima Latina second semester of SC 3, after we solidify phonics and spelling first semester. Remember that you want your son's phonics strong -- not only in decoding, but also in encoding. We ramp up phonics in a BIG way through SC More Storytime Treasures: syllabication, compound words, past and present tense endings, vowel teams. Each lesson has a big Phonics Box. We ramp up phonics encoding work in SC Spelling Book Two.

    If he finds all of this too easy, this is good, because he will have two large reading-fluency components in SC 3: The Story Bible, which is now a reader, and ALL of the SC 3 American history books. If his reading is exploding as we hoped, he will be able to "sink his teeth" into these much longer, meatier, more compelling readers about American history. He will be reading long chapters in these stories every day.

    He will still learn Prima Latina, but in an introductory way in SC 3, as with FSR A in Level C. Also important: We pre-teach the grammar components of Prima by first including these in SC Writing and SC More Storytime. I would not rush any of this.


    Instead of jumping to MP Latin, I would instead suggest omitting the 8 weeks Review this time and moving him directly to SC 3 when he finishes - perhaps accelerated - all of the stories and work in SC 2. SC 3 releases, if all goes as planned, in just a few months.


    (Did you ever think you'd have to worry about whether or not to accelerate him too much?! )

    Yes, I wondered about your sequencing of it all! So, in SC -C FSR A is gone over briefly, but then completely re-done in SC1. Will that be case for Prima? We'll write in the workbook in Sc3, but then do it again in SC4? Or will you basically take 1.5 years to cover Prima? However, it is helpful to know that the DVDs can wait until SC4. I have the teacher's manual, CD and student book already for Prima, but not the DVD!

    What is your general vision for subsequent Latin courses? Obviously, I'm guessing LC1 will be 2 years, but will the Forms also be 2 years? I was trying to do the math and I think at that rate, you can't finish 4th form? I know for many of the SC students, "12th" grade will be varying levels anyway, just curious!

    Yes, the progression will be similar to the FSR SC C Intro for the Prima SC 3 Intro. From there, some of our more advanced SC students may move to MP 2 and beyond. Others will move to SC 4. Either way, full study of Prima Latina will be the next step.

    For later SC years (beyond SC 3), we will share a larger Scope & Sequence or curriculum flow chart when this is ready.

    Does anyone have a suggestion for addition and subtraction flashcards through 18?

    We have rod and staff cards, but they only go through fact family 10; which is perfect for math 1. But math 2 studies facts through 18.

    The flash kids cards are not working as well for us. They have different problems on the front and back, with the answer in small print on the reverse. This is very confusing and distracting to my son. It's also mayhem if they get dropped, trying to figure out which card should face up.

    I really liked being able to flip the card over and there was the full equation with the answer in large font.

    I see rod and staff has two separate sets (1 for addition through 18 and one for subtraction) for $11 each. I really don't mind paying that to make math easier for me to teach.

    Thanks for any suggestions

    In our classrooms, students make sets of the flashcards using index cards. These were nice for cementing the facts through writing them but I always made a set of my own. My daughter would "forget" and write the answer on some of hers. This could forever after be seen, rendering her set unusable.

    All of that to say homemade!

    This is good to know. Maybe we need to include the +/- "Facts to 18" cards in SC 3. I like the sturdiness, the cropped edge for easy sorting, and the visual format, as you said.

    If someone wanted to make cards, as Michelle T suggested, the cards could be omitted from the order. On Monday I'll see if we can do this for SC 3.

    Thanks for bringing this up!

    Glad to be helpful. One of those little things that make a big difference.

    When a new fact is introduced its nice to have the visual reinforcement on the opposite side. We line them up on the floor, a la fact family houses in grade 1, and see the pattern.

    Cheryl : the read alouds are a hit. He couldn't figure out coins and after a single read of the coin counting book he could identify the different coins and their value. We just read the Button Box and all three climbed on my lap for a better look!

    Yes, I didn't want the cards that had different facts on the front and back. I like to sort by family and pull the cards they suggest in the lesson plans. I have these in addition and subtraction. They go all the way through 18 (there are extras left over that you don't need). I keep them in a box separated by fact family.

    I thought of one thing I wanted to say about the R&S flash cards. They are huge. (3-3/8" × 7-1/2") I had them, they are sturdy, one-sided, perfect in every way except they are gigantic and I can manipulate them well enough to shuffle them. Maybe you have hands that are better coordinated/stronger. HA. They make smaller cards too but they have an addition fact on one side and a subtraction fact on the other side. I'm getting ready to start 3rd grade math in 6 weeks and was looking at their multiplication/division cards (which are the same as the addition/subtraction).

    Hmmm. Also good to know.

    Maybe we'll leave cards off of the SC 3 Booklist.

    On the website, we might suggest the 0-18 R&S cards (with size caveat) and your 0-18 cards, Susan, as optional items, just as we list recommended watercolor sets and colored pencils in the younger levels.

    Good feedback, all.

    We're busy finishing edits on the new student guides & teacher guides. Very exciting times here, as everything begins to come together for SC 3.

    Thanks-

    Just found these. What do you think?

    Smaller R&S cards,
    Facts to 18,
    + on one side; - on the other,
    Lopped corners for easy sorting,
    $9.95 for the set.

    I think I'm more inclined to the ones with only 1 fact on each card. I know my daughter would go bananas with an additional number on the front of the card! We are using the R&S LARGE 1-10 fact cards. They are fine. We never did the dot cards, but am wondering if we should go back and do those? She also didn't need the before and after number cards. So, I don't feel I am getting my monies worth with these. I like the plain fact cards!

    I might just go ahead and get them soon, anyway. My daughter has the 1-10 facts down pretty well. We are not at 100%, but close!
