    A cool cave up north.
  1. I use mine all the time for the answer key. I'm not about to spend the time trying to figure out myself if all the words are highlighted correctly.
  2. Hmmm....not sure what happened to the op's comments. My youngest just turned 14 and she tells me she still has to often stop and think which way to make a b and d. When she was younger, I showed her the bed idea. In watching that video alibild posted, I never realized people actually made the b and d with their hands in order to form the bed (and I never heard of turning that upside down to make a pig). We just wrote the word "bed"...you can see the b is the headboard and the d is the footboard (you can even throw on a little pillow on the bed) and when you look at it and say the word
  3. Thanks everyone! Hey...don't push me over to the high school board just yet! I've got the rest of this school year before I gotta go over there. It's going to be a rough transition when the time comes. :crying: :lol:
  4. Notice how I said *I* really like it. He tolerated it. But that was with most anything related to school. I know my daughter will enjoy it more than my son did. It was a difficult challenge to teach anything to my son (unless it was art).
  5. Maybe we are late to the ball game, because my daughter is 14, but she just coded a google and loved it. :001_smile: Now she wants to do more coding. I just signed her up at the free site coding.org, but I'm wondering about Tynker. Is it worth it, being that it's not free? It is on sale right now and I may be willing to get the year subscription, if it's really worth it. Or maybe it's for younger kids, I'm not sure. I guess I don't know too much about what's out there and maybe there's enough available for free. Any help would be great. Thanks!
  6. I wouldn't call it weird :lol: . I have the dvd's and my son used the program quite a few years back. I really like it. I'll be starting it soon with my daughter. We called it Granny Grammar. :001_smile:
  7. I'm so glad this was reposted. My daughter is obsessed with painting. She learns from The Art Sherpa videos on youtube. My questions: I see videos for this artist on youtube...am I right in assuming that the many videos he has for free on youtube are just little snippets of what he offers at his site with the membership?? I definitely want to get the $97 subscription. Does it expire after a year?? Here are just two of the many acrylic paintings my daughter has painted recently. At my office, I have the tree in a frame. It's our November "Painting of the Month". I switc
  8. I really like Delightful Dictation with Spelling. I got it on Amazon.
  9. Sometimes if feels that homeschool life was simpler back 20+ years ago. Fewer options back then seemed to make for easier choices. Now there's so many options you can't possibly use all the stuff that you'd like to try. A lot of this old school stuff is still great even today. I think they just get pushed into the shadows of the new. What I remember being popular 20+ years ago: Spelling Power (although I could never implement it) Learning Language Arts Through Literature (I'm thinking the old ones with the different colored covers for each one) Simply Grammar Primary & Inte
  10. That's a great idea! I think my daughter would really like that for a change.

  12. :ohmy: :svengo: ETA: I see my avatar got taken down. I'll try to upload a photo that I take with my own camera. ETA again: I just took a picture of my own JB with my own camera for my avatar. Not that this is even important....compared to what poor Susan is going through.
  13. Thank you for your reply Susan. I will go over to the K-8 board and start a new topic, if one hasn't already been started. My old avatar was in the public domain images afterall...but I found another one that I like even better. I must say...I do like the new and improved me (everyone loves a makeover now and then). But, all kidding aside....thank you Susan for this forum, thank you for all you do. I'm sorry you've had all of this trouble.
  14. Well....proof again that I am always the LAST to know anything! This was posted 5 days ago and I'm just seeing it now. :blush: Why didn't anyone tell me?! Oh, well...I guess they did....in the announcement. Problem is, I only ever go to the K-8 Curriculum board...and, even though I check it multiple times a day...I admit....I don't often look up. I wonder how many other people have not seen this message?? I'm seriously considering starting a new topic to tell people to go read the announcement. Would that be ok to do? I'm assuming my avatar of "me" has to go? :crying: It was a mi
  15. I'm quoting myself.....because.....*drum roll please*....I figured it out!! Woot woot!! The movie is called Charly. I remember that is was very touching and sad, yet it was a good movie. And, guess what...it's based on that Algernon book. Wow....I love it when I discover that my memory, while slow, is still working. :lol: Drinks are on me everyone!! :cheers2:
