  1. Thank you all very much. Each of you has given me quite a lot. I would comment on each of the posts but I don't see a 'reply to post' button. I am going to take a few days and read over the responses and the links....abundance of quality info here.
  2. I am looking for a general list of topics/skills needed for writing in High School. Something like, "In 9th they need to be able to write a friendly letter, compare and contrast, paper, persuasion, .... and be able to tell (fill in the blank) in a story/ novel." or even just a check list of all skills needed for writing in the 4 yrs of HS. I had a few of Kathyrn Stout's books for elementary and they were very useful. Anything out there for High School?
  3. Okay...embarrassing moment here...but I found myself. When I logged in it put another of my email addresses in and had me reregister (thought it was odd at the time, but like I said it has been awhile). Looked up old stuff I had saved and found the email my account is under. It's all there. The laurelmarie account can go, I'm Down_the_Rabbit_Hole.

      Please pack all your little enemies into a box and ship to me in California. I love 'em and will crack 'em open by driving over them with my car. :)

      If they were not so heavy I would. Just yesterday I picked up enough to fill a large trash can and the tree is still loaded.

  10. Why do Doctors thing 100yr olds don't want medical intervention?

      No. They pretty much say the same, "Well, she is 100 yrs old". It is because of this attitude of not wanting to do much with a 100 yr old that caused damage to her kidneys which is now causing more problems. It is a mess.

      Some 100 year olds do. Some don't. I agree they should take it on a case by case basis.

      The patient is in charge and free to find another doctor who has a different opinion.

      It is also possible that the patient is saying one thing to family, and another to the physician.

      Tough spot; btdt.

  11. There are only a few true box curriculums out there. A curriculum that offers all subjects at a grade level to be bought as a package and offers no other alternative is a boxed curriculum. Calvert is a boxed curriculum although you can switch out the math to a grade higher or lower. I think MP is also a true boxed curriculum. BJU and Abeka(mentioned several times here) does not have to be bought with all 3rd grade books or all 6th grade things. Sure you can buy the complete set with a small discount but you can also buy each subject separately to fit your childs level. Also you do not have to buy all the subjects offered. BJU and Abeka are NOT boxed curriculums. Right now I am using BJU Math 4, Reading 4, English 3, and Science 3. I am also using SL core D , Apologia, and ELemental Science Chemistry....we are not boxed in at all. With this mix of curriculum DD is getting a variety of teaching styles...textbook, classical, Charlotte Mason, and others. We do timelines, narration, notebooking, reading of real literature as well as readers, workpages and writing, discussions, board work, and snuggle time reading. I don't consider BJU to be a boxed curriculum but because others do I will say I never regretted using them. I have used all or some subjects from BJU for 21 years and will continue until dd is finished school.

      Have you asked for a patient advocate? If you haven't, start there.
