Life of Fred Beginner Readers,Eden Series

This morning Vicki received her Life Of Fred Beginner Readers also known as the Eden Series by Dr. Stanley Schmidt. As soon as it came,Vicki is like “Mom box.Mom box” so we opened it and I showed her that it was more “Fred” books and she was so excited. She said “Mom,Fred,Fred book.”You can see her reaction here:Flickr Homeschooling
She is truly a Fred girl because she brings these books all around the house and is always reading them.

Life of Fred by Dr.Stanley F Schmidt & Getty Dubay Italic Handwriting Mansuscript

Have you heard of “Life of Fred” by Dr.Stanley Schmidt? It has recently come to my attention that there is a “Living Book”type of Math Curriculum similar to Math Lessons for a Living Education which is also on my list to try IF Life of Fred doesn’t work. I have others for backup as well.That’s not my only go to choice. Anyway I was so curious to see what the “hype” was about from so many homeschool moms who use it as a main curriculum I just had to buy one and because Vicki loves to read so why not…It’s a book isn’t it?? I just got it in the mail after waiting anxiously for it.I’ve done my research on the author and the curriculum as well. I have to admit I am addicted to it and let me tell you Math is not my best subject!Even I am so into the book I can just figure out the math. Then again it’s only the very beginning.I may just need to order the whole set for myself.Honestly I just might do that!! We also got the Getty Dubay Italic Handwriting Manuscript in the mail today. It is what Vicki is going to learn in a few years.I realize the book only has minimal practice space though so we will also do copywork as well.Yes in italic mansuscript and there’s lots to choose from…A mom just has to look but I promise it’s there.
