  6. I don't think the suggestions were aligned with any standards. I think it's more dangerous than that if the rep, a 30 year veteran teacher, gets to give ridiculous advice to a potentially unknowing homeschool audience. I know the regulations in my state and can take the suggestions and walk away in confidence that I don't have to listen to a thing she said. I hope other homeschoolers are equally informed!
  7. Yes, the calculator suggestion came in reference to memorizing multiplication facts. The best part was that the reasoning for calculator use was that "all 9th graders are given calculators". :huh: Anyway, I thanked her for her time and went home to drill my kids on their maths facts. :laugh:
  8. In my state, we have a yearly meeting with a rep. from the school district. My district is awesome about homeschooling and the reps are very supportive and encouraging. I sit down, show them my materials, and show them a recent sample of work in a few subjects. Easy peasy, no pressure, I'm not complaining! But....they do make suggestions and offer helps. This year's "suggestions" were interesting to say the least. Suggestion #1. Writing - "Don't mess with formal writing and don't make them use paper and pencil. Offer creative writing options and let them keyboard. Good creative w
  9. Teaching Writing Structure and Style by IEW The Writing Road to Reading Teaching the Classics What else? Any curriculum or book that guides or leads the teacher so that as you (teacher) learn, you need the resource or book less and less.
  10. Can anyone recommend an all-in-one literature manual? I need something that will guide me through the basics of story elements, comprehension, allegory, symbolism, and whatever else is covered in "literature". We have used lit guides in the past, but I want to learn the skills so that I can talk through any selection we are reading. I know to talk about characters, plot, and setting, but I need something that I can use as a reference for all the other stuff. Definitions, examples, general questions that can be asked of any selection. Am I making any sense? Someone help? Literature is no
  11. I'm wondering if any of you might be able to offer some insight/help. I have a friend who is struggling with her 4yr old DD. Her dd has started becoming angry when others around her are happy. She laughs when others are upset or sad. She seems to be struggling to interpret others' emotions and having opposite, even adverse reactions to them. During a funny movie, her mom starting laughing out loud suddenly and the daughter exploded in anger and hit the mom in the face. There has been some past chaos in the home and mom and dad have been working very hard to mend the damage, but this newe
  12. We are very happy with the MP choices this year. We are 8 weeks in and haven't dropped anything. The packages are writing heavy so my 4th grade boy is using the 3rd grade package. Best decision ever! Things we Love: Art Cards!!!!, Astronomy, States and Capitals, Latin, Copybook memory, and the Kindergarten enrichment book (mommy love). Things we Like: Literature guides, memory work and recitations, grammar book, and Greek Myths. Things we Dislike: Nothing! My 4th grade boy thrives on knowing what to expect each day and is easily overwhelmed with busy pages. MP workbooks have
  13. Ok, this might sound crazy but....superman pose! I watched a TED talks about the power behind powerful poses. I have a ds who also freaks out over simple tasks or schoolwork that is completely at or below his level. He will cower, cry, fake hyperventilate, etc. So we have started using the power of powerful posture to help. He is asked to stand superman style during flash cards or while I read directions or go over a task, chore, or assignment. Then he can complete the task. So far, it is showing signs of promise. Is it still very unnatural for him to stand strong and confident during
