  1. Yes I do...thanks for your help! Figuring it was all of those....thanks!
  2. Well, it looks like my cards go to levels up to 3....I forgot that they switch to fact sheets for 54. Anyone know which facts go with 3?
  3. Can you tell me what facts for 5/4 Addition, subtraction, is it multiplication 1-10? Division? Thanks!
  4. Quick question for those who still have those books can someone tell me what facts are being used in Saxon 3 and 5/4? I have the cards but not sure which ones go to which year and want to organize them accordingly. Thanks so much!!!
  5. Sorry, guess I should have been more clear. ๐Ÿ˜‰ NSLI-Y is what he is looking to and hoping to get in. Do you know of any other organizations for studying abroad for Arabic? He is focusing on Jordan or Morocco.
  6. That's tough, I am seeing this to be a common problem. ๐Ÿ˜ž How comfortable are you teaching math? Are you willing to learn yourself and then teach your child? I would just focus on what you want to teach... 2nd grade isn't that difficult figure out what you want your son to learn and then focus on those. I use SCM Mathematics an Instrument for Living Teaching as a guide to what I should be teaching and focusing on. I love it because it has the kids truly understand what they are learning and not just learning formulas, memorizing facts (without understanding) etc. My son is in 3rd grade this year and I have done this approach with him for the past couple of years and its amazing what they can get if we direct instead of lecture...when they make the connections on their own it will stick and make sense to them. Especially if you are planning on possibly sending him back to school I'd start from the beginning and make sure he understands early concepts because they build on each other! Make it so your kid loves math can do this! ๐Ÿ™‚
  7. Funny, normally kids hate writing narrations down. I would let her at it and if she gets "tired" you can finish writing it for her. I would also do like someone mentioned above any difficult words or "key" words that you think she might need I would write out for her on the board. Then let her at it. You can after she is done point out one or two things (TOPS) don't want to discourage her - that she did incorrectly and them take a mental note for yourself and then move on. She'll get it.
  8. My son really wants to do this his senior year (next year). We are working on the application and wondering if anyone has any feedback, advice, experience in the process or if a child has participated in the government program? We are hoping more for the summer program and not the year program not sure if he is ready for that maybe a gap year after he graduates. His focus is Arabic he has had 3 yrs. online school, done an immersion program this summer with Startalk which he loved....and is in his career ambitions...thanks for your help!!
  9. Please cast your vote...made it anonymous so no judgements. ๐Ÿ˜› Hoping to get a good polling before deciding on a name.
  10. I like whole language approach before getting into grammar...depending on your kids age. I would recommend using a simple children's book and focusing on target words. One book a year. Last year for my 1st grader we did The Very Hungry Caterpillar, may out there at the library in Spanish! Also letting him listen to the story in Spanish. I also have days where we have target vocabulary similiar to the Gouin method if familiar with that to work on verbs and then corresponding sentences. Also would include songs and rhymes for him to learn youtube has many good ones! HTH ๐Ÿ™‚
  11. There are some great books you can use for living geography. For high school we have combined our time period and then studied different places and just added mapping to where we were reading about. There are many good books out there, some that we have really enjoyed are: ยท American Traveler by Zug -1700s ยท Travels of William Bartram by VanDoren - 1700s ยท A Long Walk to Water: based on a true story by Linda Sue Park - 1900s ยท Sufferings in Africa: The Incredible True Story of a Shipwreck, Enslavement, and Survival on the Sahara by Captain James Riley - 1800s
