    I prefer one sided to use during classtime. My son could handle the double sided smaller ones for personal review though.

    For those not into grade 2 yet, the teaching changes to triplet facts all at once. So they learn addition and subtraction at the same time, not separately like in grade one. The student is taught to memorize 12, 9, 3 for example. So they would know how to figure the addition answer by looking at the subtraction problem on the reverse side. So, I'm guessing those two-sided cards would have 9+3 on one side and 12-9 on the other or something.

    The amazon linked cards don't go all the way to 18, so they won't work.

    I don't mind the size of rod and staff cards. I guess I'm used to them after all this time. Haha.

    I will also recommend Learning Resources write and Wipe Fact Family Triangle. I have no idea how to link it, but you can get it on amazon. We use it everyday to talk about whole and part and write the corresponding facts. Bonus, it has division and multiplication on the back so this baby will get a lot of use through the years.

    Well I must have weak hands LOL. I can't shuffle the bigger cards. Although I'm not much better with shuffling the trend cards I do have. So maybe its me!

    The amazon linked ones do have all the facts through sums of 18 though. It's confusing, the fact families aren't the same as R&S. When it says through 12 facts it means up to 12+12=24. So there are all combinations of numbers up to 12. (Same with subtraction - up to 24-12=12). So there are extra facts I don't need. I'm about 2/3 of the way through R&S 2 with DS.

    Thanks for the tip on the triangle cards, I had seen those but wasn't sure.

    These? https://www.amazon.com/Learning-Reso...+wipe+triangle

    That looks very helpful for the triplicate numbers you are speaking of with R&S 2?

    Boo-yah! Yes, Christine those are the triangle things. Highly highly recommend those.

    Susan- I get so easily confused by the different labels. I have a box of flashcards that say they go through all facts to 12 and they're just as you describe, but they don't have all the facts. Example, it only has 10+7 not 15+2 for example. It also only has 9+3, but not the mirror 3+9. Seems scattered for the upper facts. Maybe that's just the brand I have.

    I'm really not super tech savvy - but just fyi - if you want to link something, just copy and paste what's in your browser and paste it!

    Excellent! This is good to hear.

    I know I'm a little late, but I thought of this today and realized I never responded.

    We were in St. Louis for doctor appts when I spotted a coin. (My kids have a jar of parking lot coins -- saving for something.) I could not tell what the coin was as I passed by, quarter or nickel. "It's a nickel," Michelle said, scooping it up.

    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.

    Hi! I'm anxiously awaiting SC3! I'm sure others are too! Did you specifically schedule FSR E in SC3, or will it be more like a note "complete this if you have not yet".

    We scheduled it into the very beginning of SC 3. But in the Curriculum Guide, we provide an easy-to-follow alternate phonics/reading plan for anyone who does not need to teach (or review) FSR E.

    Great! I was hoping it was scheduled! We did "do it", but I would really like to review (or do) it!

    Yes! They are confusing. I think there are Rod and Staff fact families and then OTHER fact families that make no sense to those of us who are used to R&S. Ha. So here's my guess - if they say that they go through 12 - then 12 has to be the greatest number included in the ones you are adding (12+12=24 - wouldn't have 13+11=24 because 13>12) and 12 would be the highest number subtracted as well (24-12=12 not 24-13=11). I think most brands don't have the mirror facts too. The ones I have do and they say "complete" set on them and specifically show that they do. That's the reason I bought them. I'm hoping the ones I ordered for multiplication and division have all I need. Who knows? It's a gamble.

    I tried to tell my son that the 2nd grade shows us all the ways to combine numbers to 18. He said no its not . . . 10+1=11, etc. I had to really think where the line is -- the two one digit numbers that add up to the total. So concrete that child. Always looking for the exception.

    I have a question. I have Latina Christiana materials which I used with my now 9 year old. I had hoped I could use them with Simply Classical but it looks like Memoria Press has changed the curriculum and the old materials will not be compatible with the new ones? Is there any way I can use the older still to help save money(I'm assuming they will eventually do Latina Christiana in Simply Classical sequence?)

    Yes, we did issue a new edition of Latina Christiana. We spoke to Cheryl Swope and she will be teaching LC immediately after Prima, and she will be using the new edition. There were a lot of improvements in this edition and we do feel it is worth the upgrade. If purchased as part of a Simply Classical Package, it will be heavily discounted.

    That being said, if you would rather stick with your old edition, I would go ahead and order the student materials that you need now. We do have limited stock left, but will not be reprinting. Give us a call and we can see what we have.

    HTH!

    I guess I'm feeling frustrated because I just bought the 3rd edition this time last year and had hoped it would last through my children as money can be tight homeschooling 4 kids. I found someone selling some of the compatible parts (used) so I may buy it and just have to tweak the curriculum Cheryl designed to meet my family's needs. I have to save as much as I can around here.

    Completely understandable, and I apologize for inadvertently causing frustration! It's always a struggle to balance (A) improving a product for future users and (B) keeping products consistent for as many years as possible. As I mentioned in my lat post, we do have some stock left of the old edition, and as always, if you need additional help making things work, just give us a call and we'll see what we can do.

    We tried to keep this as affordable as possible, so this is the plan:

    You will not need to purchase a music cd. We will provide a Spotify/iTunes playlist for you.

    Art lessons are expanded to teach or review artists and periods from ALL K-2 Art cards. People can purchase the posters or re-use their sets from previous MP or SC levels.

    Science is embedded in the SC Enrichment guide with lessons including observation, classification, research, and experiments using household items.

    In SC 4, we will expand our coverage of classical science through classifications. I'm also excited about a possible art component for SC 4. Too early to say about music, but I have an idea and, as always, requests are welcome!

    This is getting way ahead of things, but for SC4 I would think you could use the Mammals curriculum with a new guide. We have The World of Animals, and it is a fascinating book for my kids. Also, the Creating Art resource looks amazing, and I do not even know that it would have to be modified.

    Good morning, Jeje! You're not too far ahead at all.

    The copy editor & I completed final edits on the last ex nihilo book (SC Writing: American History Read-Aloud edition) on Holy Saturday.

    With this accomplished, I began SC 4 in earnest on Monday, so I have been submerged in potential SC 4 books all week. I'll start a new SC 4 thread & add your input.

    Thanks very much --

    Is there a supplemental read-aloud/enrichment book list not previously listed?

    There is a 20% off at Thrift books for 4 + books and just wanted to make sure I had all the "necessary" and supplemental books for this level!

    Thanks!

    How often do they do sales like that? I've ordered before, but I'm not on their email list.
