  1. DD will be coming home next year for 6th grade. We're hoping to ease into homeschooling with some routines in Mid June. I was thinking just do 30 min each :math/reading/spelling(or grammar) and incorporate independent reading and crafts. She used to love sewing and crafting projects but now if she gets together with a friends she'll spend hours playing with her. Which is fine but I would like her to try to keep some passion projects up. Any way suggestions for encouraging crafts and independent play? I was thinking to rotate projects like Monday and Wed will be sewing and textile crafts and maybe Th/TH painting/drawing. I feel if there is no structure she gets bored and unable to start anything. Underlying inattentive ADHD.
  2. thanks all look into AAS. I'm worried she's going to balk at starting from the beginning.
  3. DD will be coming home to homeschool next year. Her spelling is lacking and she makes lots of spelling mistakes when writing. I had used Spelling Workout for DSs when they were homeschooling years ago, but they started from the beginning with that series. Any recs for a good spelling program starting out late elementary. So far in her private school, she just has spelling lists every week, and by in large she can study for the test, but then either never uses those words or will spell them wrong later. We're hoping to take a month of in the summer, then ease into homeschooling over the summer. So want to start looking at curriculum that might work.
  4. ok will look at the content of these recs and decide in June. thanks
  5. This is exactly what I needed to know. Thanks. Ok then we'll just have him work on the essay prompts in a google document for now and polish that up. Yes. The goal is submit before school starts.
  6. DS will be a a senior next year and has strong engineering background.. BUT he's somewhat averse to coding and thus been very opposed to taking computer science courses because he things they'll just be coding. We have explained endlessly that all engineering (and all fields) will require computer science knowledge in the future. Was hoping to find a somewhat self paced or some accountability course with weekly check ins that would be useful foundation for an engineering major as well as expose to data science or other aspects of computer science.
  7. Does it make any sense to start the application process in June (and roll over to the following year) or wait till things open in August. DS's summer internships and volunteering are cancelled and he was thinking to get a head start on orgnziang his applications. However will it show his as a repeat college applier if the application rolls over in August?
  8. so dc wanted to learn piano before all the social distancing. do you think its possible to learn with apps and keyboards and no live instruction? I am no musically inclined at all
  9. Does typing club charge later after a certain time. We signed up for typing club two weeks ago and then yesterday it was saying pay for membership? I thought the entire program can be free
  10. Without fail, every time, I get on the forum, I learn something new. I teach grad students and never knew our library had Kanopy. Although seems somewhat edited selection than on the great courses website still some hefty content.
  11. Ok, thanks maybe it was another resource I accidentally mixed it with. I found a course from ed2go and its just $100 so we'll try that.
  12. I checked and it seems that is closed (ie no longer in business)
  13. Is the streaming plan worth it if you want to explore a few topics? DS is interest in art, piano, maybe ASL, computer science. Not really able to find the right thing on Coursera or Wondering if anything else out there to get a little dabble into various topics without over committing. During COVID seems like a lot of free subscriptions but mostly to younger kids?
  14. DS is a junior and interested in taking a more relaxed self pace ASL course. Any recs, not necessary for high school credit just exploration. Prefer something inexpensive.
  15. I stitched a tunic for the DD 10 and have been mending some pants for the college kid who's home as well as DH. I have plans to finish a summer tunic for myself.
