  1. Woo Hoo! Y'all are wonderful! I have just discovered your replies, and I will take some time to think through each one. It will be tomorrow sometime before I'll have a good chance to do that. I truly appreciate your help!
  2. Ladies, would you brainstorm with me? I will be teaching a Shakespeare unit to 7th-8th graders at my local homeschool co-op this coming year, and the sky is just about the limit for what I can do. This will be a Monday-only class, and the Shakespeare part should last about 30-40 minutes each Monday. Students will complete homework Tuesday-Friday to hand in the following Monday. My class will also be learning a variety of sentence constructions and writing short paragraphs with them as well as working through Jr. Analytical Grammar Mechanics at the same time. I would certainly want to i
  3. Life is all about relationship. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit live together to love and support each other- one heart, one purpose. The chief purpose in our life is to glorify them; anything short of this is a form of religion. Religion is completely different from relationship. Religion is man seeking fulfillment to life in his own way. For one, religion may be service to mankind or finding oneness with the beauty of the earth. There are an infinite number of options to choose from. Any of these may make one feel good about himself, but none of them equal intimate frien
  4. We live in the country and use Exede satellite internet. Over the 6.5 years we've been with Exede, they have only improved their service. Although Charter cable internet was our favorite at our former residence, we are generally happy with it. Currently, we have 100 GB to use each month, and we usually make it 3/4 of the month with that. Afterwards, we still have functional internet, yet competition for bandwidth becomes noticeable at peak times. There are five of us almost always online. Four of us are schooling (high school and college) because of being home. It is even raining (st
  5. I need a Bible study resource for ds to use with the New Testament. Currently, he is working through the Old Testament using Taking the OT Challenge. You can click on the link to see it. I like this book's simplicity. It works through the OT with daily readings and very brief thought questions to help the student "chew" the passages read. Why didn't the author write Taking the NT Challenge????? https://g.co/kgs/zPeYuL Any ideas? It is important to me that the resource is simple to use, reads through most/preferably all the text, and offers a method by which the text can be
  6. Wow! Thank you all so much for such wonderful ideas! I had to be away for the afternoon, and I'm just now reading most of the comments. I will have to review them tomorrow because I'm just to tired to process everything now. If I have follow up questions, I'll post then. I REALLY appreciate your help!
  7. Thank you, Prairiewindmomma. I just checked. There is no Meals on Wheels where he lives. I've just called and left messages with three councils on aging in my area. Hopefully someone will call soon. I appreciate your suggestion!
  8. Ladies, he has Type II diabetes but is generally quite healthy. He has had a recent setback, though, and he just doesn't want to have to cook for himself anymore. I know there are food plans that make meal prep easy. These companies send you everything you need for a meal, and you only have to provide minimal effort to have one ready. He is in a very small town. There is a super Walmart, and a few grocery stores, but that's it. There is no Whole Foods, etc... However, I'm open to shopping where I live which has specialty stores and then shipping to him. I need to consider all options.
  9. Hi, I'm posting on my mom's account. I'm thinking about getting a Twitter account for my Etsy business, TreasureFilledRooms, but I'm not sure whether to get a personal or a business account. From my research, a personal account might get more traffic than a business account. Could I even make a personal account but use it as a business account? I'm trying to increase my marketing and get the word out about my business, so I recently also signed up for a business Facebook account. Just wondering if I should also add Twitter. I would appreciate any thoughts/stories/advice!
  10. Hi Kelly, A teacher at the co-op where I teach showed me this one: https://awwapp.com/ I think it probably works very well for most people. I tried it with my English class and had trouble with it. The difference, I think, was that I tried using it from home. We have satellite internet, and somehow, I think that influenced how it worked. When I first tried it, it did work. It was wonderful. I never confirmed what the problem really was. Give it a try.
  11. He is risen indeed! 2 Corinthians 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. So grateful that we serve such a holy God who gave His greatest gift, Jesus, who paid the ultimate sacrifice to purchase our salvation and to restore fellowship with Himself. What wondrous love is this, O my soul! He is alive!
  12. Thank you so much for replying, LJPPKGFGSC. I will pass on all of the suggestions, and hopefully we'll find something to use next year. Thanks, all!
  13. Thanks, ladies. I'll take a look. What do you like about Canvas? How do you use it? Does anyone use Google Classroom?
  14. I work at our local homeschool co-op, and for several years now, we have been using Engrade to keep grades and attendance records for our students. We can also email through Engrade and keep a record of correspondence between teachers, parents, and students. Engrade is part of McGraw Hill, and they are not offering this service anymore beginning next year, so my co-op has to find something to take its place. So far, all that has been researched is proving to be very expensive compared to Engrade. Parents only pay $7/student currently, but all the record-keeping programs our director ha
