  1. No go here....98% here and not surprised by his results...this son of mine is my non-reader which showed in his results today. ๐Ÿ˜ž However, I was very happy with his results and to be that high was still a good score for him. He aced his math which was great and so now we know he really needs to work on reading comprehension. So yeah, with others on with the SAT. ๐Ÿ˜•
  2. It's a huge deal for us because we are Liberty U. grads and they give full tuition for semi finalist and full rides for finalists if you are selected (they have a certain number to give out each year.) My oldest was able to squeak by and is there now and loves it. Knowing we can't afford almost $30k a year its huge...I told my kids its like winning $100k. ๐Ÿ™‚ No one wants to get out of college with a lot of debt. That is true that many schools don't offer a lot but if you know particularly where you want to go and they offer it it is huge. My son was also looking at Alabama in Huntsvi
  3. Curious....how is everyone holding up...a few more days to wait in suspense. ๐Ÿ™‚ I feel like we can't possibly get it to in a row with middos but who knows? Fingers crossed and thinking of you all!!
  4. Yes I do...thanks for your help! Figuring it was all of those....thanks!
  5. 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?
  6. Can you tell me what facts for 5/4 Addition, subtraction, is it multiplication 1-10? Division? Thanks!
  7. 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!!!
  8. 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.
  9. 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 t
  10. 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.
  11. 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!!
  12. Please cast your vote...made it anonymous so no judgements. ๐Ÿ˜› Hoping to get a good polling before deciding on a name.
  13. 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
  14. I didn't have time to read all posts but I don't think its just homeschoolers, teens, etc. it is our culture and a problem for everyone. You should check out the Shallows by Nicholas Carr it has been very enlightening! What the internet and screens are doing to our brains! ๐Ÿ™‚
  15. From what I've been told and have experienced they don't care so much as long as you have 4 yrs. of science. My son took Astronomy one year and studied on his own and then took the clep at the end of the year. This was his fun class he wanted to do. He also dual enrolled his last year (senior year) taking Chemistry at the college. So he technically took 2 yrs. in high school but they don't care since he took what they are mainly looking for is some earth science, biology, chemistry and physics. Let her have her choice...someone else mentioned Anatomy I loved that as a student! ๐Ÿ™‚
  16. I would say not for the child going into stem majors. My son took one year I believe it was Algebra and it was just not where we needed it to be. He enjoyed the class but it just didn't cover what it needed. I think the year he took it there were some kids really behind and so they had to keep reviewing which just didn't work for us.
  17. Yes, definitely Statistics she will need that in a liberal arts education. Many classes are offered online for that my son took it at Bluefield College dual enrolled without any trouble online. Great way to check the box. ๐Ÿ™‚
  18. CLRC online is offering a class for Classical Rhetoric for high school students. I know Wes (my oldest has taken classes with him before) and he is phenomenal...he is teaching a live once a week online course for students this year through CLRC where we have taken classes before. Anne is wonderful....anyway they have openings and I thought I'd let you all know...small class and a great opportunity for your youth! My middle son is taking it this year....Here is the link and info below: Rhetoric I |
  19. Any experience with Liberty Tutorials ? They only meet twice a week for one hour each meeting which is doable. It's the 3 hrs. that is a killer! Not sure about NCAA requirements. Or HSLDA? I know they are NCAA accredited and the times are doable. Just wondering on the rigor...I want it to be rigorous enough and that he will be prepared for Statistics in college the next year with checking all of our boxes. ๐Ÿ˜› Thanks everyone for the responses!
