  1. I can't upload a photo, therefore I can't post an ad.
  2. He said it is individually owned.
  3. Woops. Didn't mean to post that. He is only a minor until Sunday.
  4. We are in Connecticut. They have 3 new trainees. All working full time for three weeks no pay. My son is going in tomorrow for a full day. This is at Burger King.
  5. My son just got his first job. While I very happy because this is a step he needed to take, I'm concerned about something. They want him to do three weeks of unpaid training. This is at a fast food restaurant. Has anyone heard of anything like this? Is this normal these days? He's only got 2 months to work full time and almost half of it would be unpaid. I don't want to discourage him or interfere, but I feel like there are probably other jobs he could get where he would be getting paid from day one, even for training. At most, I could see a couple of days unpaid. Thoughts?
  6. Not sure if this link will work. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1526227690720899&id=100000010478920
  7. My son is also 13 and motivated to be at grade level. Not a math lover, though. Interesting to see how you're doing it.
  8. I think logically I should just go to the next level, but I felt that there was so much review built into the program that it might work. And mostly he does seem able to do the work on the placement test. Thank you for all your responses. I think I will give it a try. If it is too difficult, we can go back and we will have the program already for next year.
  9. Ds did TT level 4 last year. The next step would be level 5, but I was thinking of maybe moving him right to level 6. I think there is so much review built into TT that this might be ok. I did the placement test for level 6 with him. He needed quite a few reminders ,but overall did fine. He didn't know fractions at all. I can work with him on areas like this, but what I'm wondering will it be too many areas that he is missing or not enough review to help him understand it?
  10. http://guesthollow.com/homeschool/curriculum.html#science Have you checked out Guest Hollow's options. They are created by a homeschool mom (who is on these boards). She offers some of them free (donations are nice :)) There is a junior human anatomy curriculum. I haven't used any of these but they look really well done. Good living books, hands on components, and all layer out. Check it out:
  11. I picked up Real Science 4 Kids level 1 at a curriculum sale the other day. I have the students texts and Teacher's guides. My friend said I only need to buy the workbooks. Now I see they are out of print. They are not easy to find used without the rest of the set. Is there something the company currently publishes that will work with the older set? Thank you.
  12. Wondering if you are one of my friends grown weary. Lol. I don't think so, but truly I could be your friend. You said in the last post you've done everything aside from saying "Your problem is _________. If it were me, I think it might be a relief to have someone be direct and maybe insightful into something I'm missing. Sure, she may not want to hear it or even become angry, but I think if you approach her from a perspective of love she may be more receptive. It seems to me, it's more loving to tell her that than not.
