  1. We found a lot of value in our kids attending the local community college. They are/were younger Running Start students, so technically they were still in high school while there but it gave my dd18 an amazing platform to learn to advocate for herself out in the real world while still being supported at home every night. She also learned to move at the pace college classes move at, but the class sizes were small enough that she developed great relationships with her professors and had access to the help she needed. She's now full time at a four year university, and she's definitely grown from the experience.
  2. My DS11 is studying Spanish this year, and he's been using a Fluenz Spanish program I've owned for a few years. He's goes through the lesson on a desktop with headphones while I review each lesson with my laptop and headphones next to him. It's fairly low key, and has been very easy to implement. We close it down at the end of each 30 min lesson, and then it comes right back to where you left off the next time. I've used Fluenz for both Spanish & Italian. What I appreciate about the program is how quickly you are speaking useful, conversational Spanish which is what I was after for his first year of Spanish. It's a fairly expensive initial purchase, but there's a big sale every year for Black Friday and maybe the month of December.
  3. Hi, can I ask where you found these? ** Nevermind ** found them! 😉
  4. Can I ask where you found the link to purchase the $18 access? I see the free resources on but can't access the teacher's toolkit without a teacher's access code which I assume would be with a new purchase. I am wanting to buy a used textbook on Amazon and just the license. Also, does anyone know if there is considerable difference between the 2007 & 2018 editions. If it's notable, I may just purchase the new text from Christianbook and get the access code that way, but if I can piece it together with an old book and class zone activities then that might work. I've opened the free 4 month membership with them and see that having the teacher resources online really isn't all that helpful. lol
  5. I haven't ordered the used textbook from Amazon yet, but can't seem to access the online teacher's portion without a teacher's access code. Does anyone know how to purchase just the online access code?
  6. I have a 6th grader (DS11) who is just beginning Math Mammoth 7A & B which is a pre-algebra curriculum. I've used MM 1-6 with all three kids and had great success with it. After this year my plan is to use Foersters Algebra alongside Mathwithoutborders.
  7. Thanks so much for these links. I've been wondering where to find the Skills Worksheets.
  8. This is amazing! Thank you so much for sharing. 🙂
  9. With the older kids working harvest with their Dad the entire month of August, the house is very quiet! Must be back to school time for DS! I'm actually excited to get started with the full schedule. Summers are very busy on the farm, but I enjoy having a routine and knocking out some school work while things are relatively quiet in the house.

  10. My older two were very competitive with each other when homeschooling together all day, which is where I think a lot of the bickering came from. It drove me crazy as well! As they've gotten older, and their lives have become more independent, I've noticed they visit more now. They also enjoy having time alone together to do things without us. And surprisingly they don't argue with each other at all when we aren't around. If/when I come back into the room though .. game on. It may be age, or just that there's a parent in the room to complain to, but they do seem to enjoy each others company a lot more now. Still competitive though. Hang in there. 🙂

  12. I am on my 3rd child using Math Mammoth, and I have to say it's been very easy to implement, teaches directly to the student, and has been an excellent elementary math program for our family. My 3rd is in 5th grade this year and doing MM6, he'll move on to AOPS after.
  13. Hi, I couldn't tell if your History Odyssey books have sold? Do you still have those available? Thanks

  14. That is absolutely fabulous Lewelma! Thank you for sharing this past season's science fair project with all of us. I am thrilled to see that it culminated into academic awards for him. It certainly makes time spent in that frigid water well worth it! How exciting. I am excited FOR you!
