My 14 yr old is going into 9th next school year(2020/2021) we just finished the last workbook that was made from the Emma Serl Primary/intermediate language lessons. This is the only LA curriculum we’ve ever done. My question is…now what? What curriculum do we use now? She doesn’t love writing, but does need to improve.Wings2flyParticipant
Did you know there is a third book in that series? Advanced Language Lessons is for ages 13 to 16. I bought mine from Rainbow Resource. I haven’t used it yet though.
We are eclectic with a mix of IEW, Bravewriter, Spelling Wisdom dictations, Simply Grammar, Literature readings and both oral and written narrations.
Queen Language Lessons are available for high school, too. One book covers grammar, while another covers writing a research paper. There are 4 high school books in total, one available for each year. These are similar to the Emma Serl books. There are so many choices, it is hard to decide!
No, I didn’t know there was another! I’ll look into it!
Like I said, she doesn’t love writing and has repeatedly said how she can’t wait to be done with this because it’s boring. (insert an eye roll) She’s just tired of the memorize this, write this, blah blah blah .(she’s 14 and pretty much doesn’t like anything,LOL)
We’re thinking of taking a different direction with her for high school. I just haven’t got it all figured out yet. She plans to become a baker/bakery owner, so we’re thinking of centering her HS years around that. Kind of an unschool, experiential schooling approach. We’re in TX so we don’t have to follow along with the public schools HS credit schedule. If anyone has any advice on that, please reach out to me!! 🙂Wings2flyParticipant
Okay…I understand the need for a change. Check out Bravewriter’ s The Writer’s Jungle. It is a handbook for you to help your student with creative writing projects customized for each student. They have a high school book written to the student available too, but I don’t have any experience with it. I bought the Writer’s Jungle pdf download at Homeschool Buyer’s Coop for a discount. I think it could work with the Bakery owner plans. If you do use this, see the appendix for sample schedules before reading through the handbook. There are many ideas and flexibility for writing projects with this. The author emphasizes finding your writer’s voice. But you need to add in any needed grammar programs, spelling, and/or literature.retrofamParticipant
There is a Facebook group called Blue Collar Homeschool that is helpful. The owner just started a restaurant with her kids.
Yes! I just joined them a few weeks ago! 🙂
Thank you! I’ve heard of Brave Writer quite often, but never any real experience with it. I’ve also considered having her take and English from someone else , but I’m not sure how well she would do. She doesn’t care about grades and struggles with compliance, but she may do better for someone else.
