It's one of my favorite times of the year. You see, I
have a "thing" for books. And, yes, it even includes
curriculum. After much research I have chosen this year's
Writing with Ease came highly recommended. It helps
ease your child into writing. You read sections of literature
and your child repeats them (in their words) back to you.
This helps them to process how to write. There are also
questions that you go over and the reviews are amazing!
(with a focus on how and why we believe the Bible), colorful
pictures, fun activities, etc. I just need to order the
Notebooking journal and we will be on our way!
I wanted to try Saxon sooooo badly, but I heard it was
extremely repetitious and expensive. Any thoughts on it?
This year we are diving into cursive writing. I'm not sure
how often it will be used in the future what with the
popularity of computers, but I am going to teach it anyway.
Writing with Ease (top). The Story of the World is
exceptionally written. If I had been taught history
with this series I may have majored in it. Even if you
don't homeschool it is fascinating and entertaining!
Katie is not very happy with the book below. She
thinks everyone will think she is a baby. sigh.. The
lessons are wonderful, though! The book
covers almost everything and in short, simple lessons,
too. Sorry, Toots, this one is a keeper. (Mandy told her
to be glad that it was not called Language Lessons for
beginning of each week that has to do with God. It's
almost like Sunday School.:) The activities are fun and
educational and Katie really enjoys them. Winner!
I am using Accelerated Christian Education
(School of Tomorrow) with Mandy this year. I am really excited
about it! I had never heard of it before but was really
impressed with what I saw. Fingers crossed!:)
