  1. That's good to know about grass seed being too old. I love the edible Nile Rivers! These are so awesome, and I can't wait for the girls to experience this too! That means we better get going instead of taking a huge break!:001_smile:
  2. How about some notebooking pages to help cement in the stuff they learned? :001_smile:
  3. You just never know. I feel bad for the clinic where he worked. I used to work for a doctor who was convicted of murdering his wife. I found out after I moved from the state.
  4. Regarding HIH, the scheduled 4 SOTW books are gone, and there is a new WP Exclusive that is geared toward K and 1. It is brand new, and I don't think it's even come off the printer yet. I didn't even consider HIH last year with my K and 1st grader, but now I am open again to considering it when our youngest is that age.
  5. The Abeka readers are expensive, 12 dollars new, and they usually sell for at least 5 dollars on ebay. :001_smile:
  6. I wanted to add that my 7-1/2-year-old DD sounds exactly like yours. Math is painfully slow. We've gotten "behind" because I had to just stop after 30 minutes. She counts on her fingers regularly and doesn't seem interested in just trying to get it done. She is reading more quickly now (key word more quickly, not fluent), and we are only just beginning ETC book 4. She loves science, though, and drawing. She draws all day long. I thank you for starting this thread, as it has helped me too. :001_smile:
  7. I like WPs color timeline figures.
  8. I think Sea and Sky would be a good choice for your students with the Young Learner's Guide. Some of the stuff in the main program will go over the younger's head, but the YLG has book suggestions and which resources in the main program will likely interest her. There is Children Around the World also.
  9. I asked because as I was using my shampoo this morning, there was a question that asked what do 30% of women lie about? It was their weight. It made me curious to see if it was accurate or not. :001_smile: I like to read, even in the shower!
  10. Have you ever lied/fibbed about your weight before? Just wondering :D. Poll coming.
  11. I've had the same problem with my youngest. We tried Aveeno, something my friend whose child has eczema uses, and many more. The only one that didn't make her break out was Waterbabies (possibly by Coppertone). It's a hit or miss, though. Have some Benadryl handy, as my DD's was very itchy, and this helped. HTH!:001_smile:
  12. Well, there are already a lot of responses. I used the slate (big hit here), wooden pieces (this was okay, I really like the idea of cutting them out of foam material), and the workbook. I used the teacher's guide only at the PreK level, which is filled with many extra activities and ideas. We do have girls, so they have easily caught on, no problems. The guides for K and 1 seemed to just say the same things over and over again, and in the workbooks there were the same "wording" on how to make the letters such as "magic c, climb up to the top, fall back down, and bump the line." That isn'
  13. I've just checked it out and even called. So I haven't used this and haven't ordered it even. :D But, I talked with a gentleman on the phone, and he seemed very knowledgable about which level to start. He suggested level 2 for our almost 6yo and artistic 7-1/2-year-old. I'm really trying to wrap my mind around $55 for a DVD. If I've read it right, there are 24 lessons in a level, spread out on 3 DVDs. So 8 lessons a module. My oldest DD loves artistic things, though, so I want to go deeper with her in this.
  14. Maybe some art appreciation books from the library. Maybe do Monet for 9 weeks, Rembrandt for 9 weeks, etc. There are tons of notebooking pages at www.notebookingpages.com (free!) to go along with different artists. If you get a nice coffee table book from the library, just study one painting a week, possibly adding in a biography of the artist. Here is an example of an artist study. There are other links to other artists as well. http://jimmiescollage.com/2010/03/matisse-artist-study/
