  1. science shepherd had videos and textbooks
  2. Needing a little help with my son's courses and thought I would start a 9th grade planning thread! Here are my ideas so far! My son is not advanced, but very normal 🙂 Post your line up! Math - teaching textbooks algebra Foreign lang - Latin through Compass classroom Lang arts - ? Physical science- ? Bible and Ancient History - veritas press Omnibus
  3. So, my daughter has been homeschooling through a charter school since 6th grade. She is a Sophomore now. Next year she will be a junior and wants to graduate early. We have decided to pull her out and homeschool ourselves to be able to do that. She will have enough credits by the end of her junior year to legally graduate. My question : How do I combine the charter schools transcript and mine? DO I just add her courses to my mom made transcript? Also, how do I make a transcript with only three years of high school on it? I know people do that, and kids graduate early, I just don't know what to do. She will be working through the summer to get it all done by next May. She want to do college courses through an online school, that will be covered by grants when she finishes high school. She isn't into duel enrollment, because the school she wants to go to won't be covered with grants, and we don't have the money. Any help on this confusing post would be wonderful! lol
  4. My son is at different levels for subjects, but here is our line up this next year: Math - BJU dlo math 4 Language arts - BJU dlo English 4 Science - Crosswired science History - history odyssey middle ages level 1 / along with veritas press self paced middle ages Bible - VP Bible Music lessons, art lessons, and sports
  5. I go almost every year to our homeschool convention here in CA . I honestly only go for the vendor hall. BJU always has its distance learning on sale and Veritas press will sometimes have really good deals as well. We found out about our local homeschool music classes by seeing their booth there. You can look through all the books, that you have only seen online. I love it.
  6. Science is my downfall. We do it, here and there, but not really until Jr high/high school. Then we use online classes. Read a louds...ugh...so yawny We love music and art in this house. History and grammar is done daily and Math is always online as well.
  7. We are using teaching textbooks prealgebra. It gets the job done without any tears so that's a plus!
  8. I also feel the We Believe series from Apologia would work great
  9. We have used Acellus physical science for both my older girls. I'm thinking either BJU dlo or Apologia for my son
  10. My eighth grader spends from 8 - about 12 on core classes. After lunch he does his music practice ( drums and cello) and chores. He also goes to a once a week government class in the afternoon.
  11. It looks interesting for younger grades. Not enough for high school at all! I will wait it out and see others reviews on it.
  12. We loved Mothergoosetime! Its a monthly kit and you can add the k5 math and language arts workbooks. it's really amazing.
  13. voyages in english workbook level2 https://www.rainbowresource.com/product/sku/068324
  14. You could use BJU distance learning for Biology. My daughter is using it this year and it has a recorded teacher, books, and they take the tests online. It is self paced. Other options are Time4learning, Acellus, and Khan academy
  15. I can’t use my username either :( I changed it to one word instead of two..but I’ve lost all my post history..
  16. Which grade are you looking at? Some of the older videos are still 30 minutes long. Also, a lot of the high school videos are still 30 minutes long. In my opinion, I feel the newer shorter videos are better. They include less fluff and more facts.
  17. My daughter is taking life science dlo this year with BJU and has truly learned so much! I recommend it.
  18. My daughter is learning French and Greek :)
  19. Core Curriculum- MBTP level 6-8 Online extras Outsourced activities- art lessons, kids choir, piano lessons, baseball/ soccer
  20. Math -oak meadow 6 Language arts - GFTWTM Literature - Bookshark 7 or MBTP ( haven’t decided yet) Science - Bookshark 6 History - Bookshark 7 Extra Outsourced classes - art, choir, band Kits- tinker crate
  21. My oldest uses it for all her main courses. She is thriving and also doing all the special lessons. She is more of an artsy girl so she likes to get her “school workâ€out of the way to make room for all her extra curricular activities. (Art lessons, band, choir, fencing, tumbling, and teen group.) It works for her. It’s not “rigorous “ but it truly fits her personality. My second oldest using a combo of BJU dlo, Acellus and t4l. She loves variety so there we have it. ;) She is also in a ton of extra curriculum activities like her sister. Both my girls love online learning and chose that route. My two little boys use a variety of other curriculum and keep me very busy throughout the day, so I am thankful for the online curriculum my girls have.
  22. I have 4 kids so the lists include different things they may be using together or separately . Loves- Moving beyond the page Bookshark Science BJU dlo Math SOTW GFTWTM Oak meadow high school drawing course Didn’t work- Teaching textbooks Bookshark history or language arts Singapore Math BJU history or science We have some meh things as well that we are just plugging away at. The kids are loving their extra curricular activities as well.
