  1. This was such an illuminating thread and will definitely be using this for my kids!
  2. These seem like such great resources. I am especially hopeful to find some worksheet that i can use for my kids. Now that i have abundantly received from this thread and other threads on this forum- i'd also like to share something that i do with my homeschooled students from my community. When i give them homework to do at home, I often give them different ways to solve the advanced problems and also tell them about the possibility of using archives on sites like Bartleby to take help of experts, i have noted that when i share the idea that it is alright to ask for help, they obviously become more error-free because the pressure to get it right all the time is gone. Let me know if you try that 🙂
  3. Hey, my student is a fast learner and really enjoyed challenges. The diagrams from textbooks did not serve my student also. I was able to print copies from online sources along with some recommended biology textbooks from trustworthy sources. It also helped that the student was strong with the foundational concepts.
  4. I think it would be wonderful to travel around in Asia too. An acquaintance did that and it was much cheaper than travelling in Europe while being a complete perception-shifted. Your son should consider vietnam and india definitely.
  5. This is really interesting. So, one can post for critique here? That is really helpful to know. My kids are too young for literary analysis but will definitely seek help with their work later on.
  6. When my younger one was in first grade, I made him make schematic diagrams of concepts with cloud like diagrams. I would get it printed and he would have a lot of fun writing food, yellow, sweet etc. in the blanks arising out of the big cloud that had a picture of a banana. This is a lot of fun and also sets the context for exploring ideas around a particular subject that the child wants to write about.
  7. I don't understand why this might have been reported. I in fact think that this is an important conversation to be had with teenagers. I have heard that scandinavian countries see better reproductive health and sexuality choices by teenagers because they are given the choice to learn and understand the process and importance of sexuality. The rate of unwanted pregnancies among teenagers is also much less there. Now about this essay, I would also encourage the person to use proofreading and editing services or you can even use free writing tools. Or as SammySommers mentioned, you can find friends who are good with language who can proofread it for you. Just ensure that they do not change the initial ideas that you have expressed.
  8. This thread has been very informational for me because i have been wondering about what it means when my children are mostly exposed to only my worldview. I think i will look at the Reading Detective sources. Thanks.
  9. This seems like a very comprehensive plan and also effective. I would like to add only the tried and tested after school method that works for me. This is improvisational games. It helps me also understand the topics that my children are thinking about. I especially like this game called debate-debate in which both my children have to talk about a topic continuously and it helps their rhetorical skills and it is done in many jestful ways. I also play this game called whoosh with their friend and them. They don't even realize it but they are learning focusing and collaboration in a fun manner.
  10. Hi, I am Lisa and i have two children who are being homeschooled. I am part of some homeschooling digital spaces already and looking forward to contributing and learning here as well :)
