  8. If you have very hard water, you probably do want to filter it first. Also - some cats are just horrible about drinking enough for some reason. We had to get our kitty a drinking fountain. Really helped :) Here is the one we got: http://www.amazon.com/Drinkwell-Platinum-Pet-Fountain-168oz/dp/B000L3XYZ4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1444152534&sr=8-1&keywords=cat+drinking+fountain
  9. If you can, go get it checked. There are autoimmune causes for that as well as nerve issues. Hope it is something simple :)
  10. In my limited experience, the schools my sons looked at only required one or the other. The benefit of taking both is really that some kids are better at SAT or better at the ACT and only by taking the practice exams can you really know which they will do better at. The tests really are rather different.
  11. Also - keep in mind it is the lab processes, the scientific processes behind the labs, that are more important than the labs themselves. Well - to a point of course :) I would keep a lab component (of come kind - with or without dissections) in any high school science class if possible - not just for college admissions, but for the 'real' science behind them.
  12. LOL- reading the title of the thread, "time" popped into my head :) Reading books aloud - a lot of them, above their reading levels. Reading good literature. Giving them a solid foundation in math, history, and science.
  13. Starship Troopers was a horrible movie, but it's an excellent book :)
  14. Is your K'er 4? I am not advocating against anything anyone is saying here... but my recommendation is to take a break for a while. Some kids are simply not ready until they are closer to 6 or 7 - look into how Waldorf schools handle it. I'd just do a lot of reading aloud and playing - make it fun - with letters. Just - exposure without any pressure or goals. The big thing is to keep it fun. If she gets frustrated now it will only make it harder later. My dyslexic son could barely read until 3rd grade and now he is an avid reader and reads multiple books a week. He loves it. I know a
  15. My son liked Math-U-See up until pre-algebra - then we floundered around for a while. We did LoF for a while, supplemented with extra practice on the concept he would be working on. We then went on to Foerster Algebra 1 without an issue.
