  1. I'm so glad I found this!! We have multiple cats and I'm so tired of the mess they make with the litter OUTSIDE the box. UGH! Thank you guys! :) OP, thanks!
  2. I own the ENTIRE math series and we've made it up to Jellybeans...this is the 10th book. It did work for my kids! However, for me I was struggling with it "being enough" and opted to switch them to something different. Had I not done this they would have been up to where they needed to be. I dropped it at the beginning of the school year because I was asking myself the same question you are. I wish I didn't let it go! My own insecurities sabotaged a wonderful fun math program! I am on a facebook group for LOF users and there are SEVERAL families who have used it and their kids scored GREAT
  3. We've had a slow going year since we are doing so much outsourcing this year. I'm a teacher at a local coop and run 3 large classes. I won't be doing that next year. I'm ready to get back to the roots of what we loved about homeschooling and being home with my children! This spring and summer we will focus on completing the following.... CLE Math 100 CLE LTR 100 & Reading 100 CLE Social Studies 100 CLE Bible 100 Next year for 2nd grade we plan on doing the following as basics.. Math: CLE 200 Reading: CLE 200 L.A.: CLE 200 Next year for 2nd grade we plan on adding some ex
  4. I'm one of the crazy ones who plans the following year this time because it's Tax time & Convention time! Here is what I've got set in the books to do and I'm super excited about it. I made so many changes last year and previous years that I think I'm on to a path of finally finding what works for us. DS7 - 2nd Grade Math: CLE Bible: CLE Social Studies: CLE Reading: CLE History: SOTW Writing: WWE Geography: Daily Geography Practice by Evan Moor Spelling: AAS Science: Undecided Art: HAS DD11 - 6th Grade Math: ACE Bible: Undecided Reading: CLE History: SOTW Geograp
  5. We all enjoyed LOF. Sadly, I was so focused on the fact that they didn't have any actual worksheets that I stopped using it. I'm not happy that I did though, it was working! I will more than likely use it starting back up this weekend until our new stuff comes in. I am using CLE with my 1st grader and the concepts he's learning just in 1st grade blows my mind! I regret not finding them sooner for my girls!! I have no SHAME in starting them back in the 300 series so they can learn the skills needed for the upper series. I think that's the biggest hurdle I will end up jumping with myself, s
  6. I've learned to keep what's working and let it be just that. I always saw gaps and ways I could improve in certain areas. When I decided to switch things up because of my own insecurities with their education, I ended up messing up what was working. We are now back to the basics and I wouldn't trade it for the world. We now have more time to do FUN engaging and hands on activities!
  7. I can understand your struggle. I have a 7th grade dd who is struggling in math as well. For me though, it started at the beginning of the school year when I realized she was a different learner than my other math loving kid and I needed to switch up! We have LOF and we have used several other math programs. I am debating between putting her in either ACE or CLE. The difference I'm finding an issue with is the level she would be at as well as the different teaching approaches. I know she wouldn't mind if I told her it's just a series number and not a grade level. I really think that CLE lets t
  8. THANK YOU!!! :hurray: I hope the OP is able to see that toO!!
  9. Where did you end up placing her? I'm curious because she sounds just like my rising 7th grader too!! We took the placement test and she struggled with the fractions back in the 300 series! I'm considering ordering the 300 for her and still reading LOF too!
  10. What's your opinion of the CLE Math?
  11. I am a teacher for tutorial classes. Last year I was just a teacher, this year I'm now a teacher and the Administrative Director. We started out last year with 20 families, since taking over and advertising and organizing it...we are up to 60 families. I taught Preschool-High school classes last year. This year I'm teaching strictly to upper elementary through high school. Our enrichment program is once a week. The math we offer is twice a week. We are at a local church who has amazing class rooms. We use the space for free because the Pastor's wife and I are co-Administrative Directors of
  12. Nope! All that hype for such a disappointment. I did get ONE score. The Skylanders Kaos Trap was there for $5.99, we've been searching all year for it. So I got that.
  13. I voted Geo. When I began homeschooling my daughters I taught them History first. They didn't understand where what was where and so on. This time around with my boys I'm making sure to spend at least their 1st grade year focusing on Geography
  14. WOW! :coolgleamA: Thank you for that! I will be including many of those videos in our upcoming studies.
  15. I'm going to say IEW! I've seen others said the same thing. I've been teaching it to tutorial classes outside my home all of last year and to my children as well. It's a beautiful program. I will be teaching it again this upcoming year and I'm excited to do so. It's so easy to teach and the kids grasp the concepts rather quickly!
