  1. Me too! I want to hear your answers. I am considering this for my son. I also have Biology 101 dvds to add to it. I am also looking at Guest Hollow Biology, but leaning toward Friendly Biology. My son has no interest in science, but this looks more interesting than most.
  2. What about Real Science 4 kids? They have a middle school chemistry. I'm thinking about doing that with my daughter and I have McHenry's Elements so that might be a good combo.
  3. I'm looking for a science program for my 13 year old daughter. She is dyslexic so struggles with reading, but is doing so much better. She also has Auditory Processing Disorder so all the past years that I have read her books to her so hasn't learned much. I was thinking of getting Exploring the Building Blocks of Science 5. I like how it has chemistry, biology, physics, geology and astronomy. After doing this in 8th grade, she will pick which 3 of these areas she would like to do for high school. Has anyone used Exploring Building Blocks of Science? How did you like it? I tried doing the search but didn't have any luck. Thanks in advance!

  5. Thanks for these ideas. I haven't looked at Easy Peasy before so I'll look at that. I do have Getting Started with Spanish. I was looking for something more fun for her, but maybe I can combine it with something else.
  6. I am looking for a middle school Spanish for my 13 yod. She is dyslexic, APD and low working memory. She wants to learn Spanish as we live in CA and she hears Spanish everywhere we go. Does anyone have any recommendations? It needs to be fun, not move too fast, interesting and start to prepare her for High school in a couple of years. Thanks, Gretchen
  7. Does anyone have any experience with Audiblox? It is now called Edublox and mostly a computer program now. I was just reading about it and they had a case study of a girl named Maddie who had very similar testing scores as my daughter. Any one else use it? Thanks, Gretchen in No. CA
  8. I'll give her the screening. Thanks. Right now we are doing Logic of English Essentials. She does struggle with hearing some sounds, like the difference between m and n so I was wondering if I should go back and do FIS.
  9. I haven't used it but have heard mixed reviews. Some say it is amazing and their child has improved so much by using it. Others have said their child didn't improve at all and it was an expensive mistake. I'm looking into it too. Another recommendation is HearBuilder. It is similar but not very expensive. My daughter is being evaluated by a speech and language center at a nearby University in Feb. so I'm hoping they can help me choose one of these or have other suggestions.
  10. My daughter scored very low on the CTOPP 2 test. Would something like Foundations in Sound (precurser to Barton) help her with this? Thanks, Gretchen in No. CA
  11. Great job! Do you have the teacher's guide for intermediate for sale? I have the older kids one and it is too hard for my daughter so I wanted to get intermediate. Thanks! Gretchen
  12. My son will be reading SWB The History of the Medieval World this year for 10th grade. He will be doing independent study with our local school. They are used to having regular tests at the end of the chapter. Are there any tests for this book? Anyone made up any? Thanks!
  13. Does anyone know of a course that would cover more modern music?I don't know if it would be history or music appreciation. By modern I mean 1940's till now. Has anyone written curriculum for this or know of a book that would cover this? Of course, we would add plenty of listening to music! Thanks, Gretchen
