  1. Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone - Deborah Madison. Hands down, this is the Bible of this genre. I use it constantly and we are not even vegetarian.
  2. Weighing in late...but my daughter took DO physics (years ago) and really enjoyed it... she even considered majoring in physics. Another daughter took Clover Creek Physics and loved it. This is one course where a good instructor can make a huge difference.
  3. I don't think our district purchased teacher support, but I can help the kids through their courses. I still don't have the whole picture - maybe there is teacher support but it didn't sound like it! Will have more information next week.
  4. Thanks for the input BusyMom5 and City Mouse. In a weird twist I will be helping a group of kids through their Pearson experience at the school where I'm a TA. Luckily I have taught math before so I can help my daughter if she needs it with Algebra 2.
  5. I guess I'll be able to give everyone an update in about a month. Fingers crossed.
  6. That's what I am concerned about -- the teaching. The samples look like automated tasks. I didn't realize there was a real teacher on the Pearson side. She'll have a teacher at her school overseeing the process.
  7. Sorry if this has been discussed. The search function is not coming up with much. Our school district is going back face to face or online with Pearson (students have to choose). Please share if you have tried any of the classes.
  8. New World Rising - Electric Light Orchestra
  9. I am currently working with a student who struggles with Alg. 1. To start with we are using the CLE (Christian Light) Alg. 1 Math Skill Development Sheets. There are 63 of them, reviewing basics that are covered in Algebra - fairly easy and explanations on each page. Then we will start in the Alg 1 LightUnits this summer. It is a gentle program with lots of review. With this particular student I need to build her confidence, and it is working. I thought about using the Key To series but CLE is better (see samples online) for this student at least. Surprisingly the Christian content is almost n
  10. I love the Saxon Algebra 2 (with geometry) book and taught it twice online with the Virtual Homeschool Group co-op...however it may not be the easiest transition. I agree with Jann. It takes a long time to get through that particular book (129 lessons + weekly tests).
  11. Since mid Match I have been shepherding jr high and high school kiddos who I formerly had in my computer lab (in-person) study hall. It is incredibly exhausting for me and for the kids! We only have school for 2 more weeks but I call some of my kids several times per day to try to keep them going. This past weekend the seniors graduated, all 34 of them in our tiny district. It was surreal, and beautiful. Ceremonies were conducted on the football field with one vehicle-full per graduate, all lined up in a horseshoe arrangement. I think it was the best graduation I have ever attended. Tomorrow b
  12. I've also indulged in audiobooks....re-listening to all my Kate Morton and Pat Conroy titles, and a new series of Sherlock Holmes mysteries by Laurie R King. Also for the first time, The Goldfinch. 🧡
  13. I've been using fountain pens and nice paper for my daily work.
  14. In Oregon it may not be prescribed as a preventative. You have to be admitted to a hospital to receive it. https://www.oregon.gov/omb/statutesrules/Documents/855.007.0085 Prescriptions for Chloroquine.pdf
