  1. My kids would have loved the "thinking cat" too! Are you just printing these out? Yes it takes very little at this point to excite any of us 😂 I'm glad your wrist is getting better! It's got to be frustrating.
  2. Well, we just finished our first week, and dare I call it a success? I've only abandoned 1 curriculum! Redbird online is just....no. We lasted 2 days. We did Math Mammoth (one page at a time) and Dream Box instead and this seems like it's going to be ok? I don't think MM is at all a great fit for dysgraphia in general but DD seems to be fine so far. The only reason I tried it is because I have it and also Singapore shipping times are nuts. Cursive Logic! I REALLY like this. The whole "say this" part is great. DD will first trace with her finger saying the cues and then write with a
  3. I hated navigating yahoo groups! My TWJ is in a 3 ring binder though. 🙂 I agree, I much prefer forums to FB groups. I'd get off FB completely if I didn't need the groups!
  4. You would just name the body part without giving it a gender. (I'm not an expert on any of this, just a fairly progressive person trying to figure out how to not be hurtful to a group of people who have called this kind of stuff out. I'm definitely still learning and for all I know could be way off base. This is my interpretation as a cisgender woman.)
  5. You wouldn't label them as male or female, you would just name the body part.
  6. I really love the meetings. They ask me every time how I think it’s going and if I want anything to change. It’s refreshing after experiencing the opposite in public school! 😂
  7. I've been around since 2010. I know how the discussions go. 🙂
  8. Yeah I don't think this part of the discussion can go any further without turning political unfortunately. I am reminded, yet again, why I generally avoid the chat board. 🙃
  9. It's not recognizing differences in anatomy; the labeling of them is trans-exclusionary.
  10. Yep to allll of this. The secular groups are over run with questions from PANICKED Covid schoolers. And I get it, two of my kids were in PS when this all went down, so that’s absolutely not a judgement. But they are very nervous their kids will “fall behind,” and as home schoolers, we understand grade levels are arbitrary and even if they did nothing this year most kids would be “caught up” by 18. (I’m skeptical kids in school will learn much this year anyways but that is a topic for another day.) I don’t know, I am not seeing any of these extremes anyone is talking about, and it still s
  11. All of this! I have recently returned to these groups and found them extremely helpful in general. I was someone who used McHenry Cells & Botany with my oldest because people HERE called them secular, only to find out that it wasn’t truly secular. I was really upset because I’m not a STEM person and it’s not like it said anything about Jesus or a bible story to jump out at me. It was information omitted in order to remain YE. (Before anyone asks what was omitted, I don’t remember and I no longer own the book.) when I first started reading this thread I didn’t think
  12. I would add that death isn’t the only negative consequence. Long term lung damage and/or myocarditis don’t sound great either. A kid might not necessarily know if a teacher has these lasting effects, but I just got an email from my pediatrician about what high school athletes need to do in order to be cleared to play again so they can rule out both of those things first. There are already cases of athletes who cannot play because of the damage covid did. These aren’t great-grandparents these are 20 year olds.
  13. I misspoke, I meant she could hear the sounds. phonological processing isn't the same as phonics and I interchanged them
