  1. Wow! It's been 7 years since a family emergency stopped our homeschooling adventure mid-school year. Now I teach general music in a K-5th elementary school - using Kodaly methods which are very classical in nature. Still haven't tossed any of my WTM/WEM purchases, and just wondering if there are any online options for WEM-centric book clubs. From what I remember, and what I see scrolling, this forum isn't really a place where people all decide to read a book together and come here to discuss. But a lot has changed here!! Have looked for a "real live" WEM book club in Atlanta, but no luck there. If you know of one, please pass on the info. Thanks!
  2. Can't remember who sung that song.....and probably anyone reading this is too young to know! Also can't believe my log-in still works - thanks SWB'

    Handwriting/Penmanship curriculums....

    That must be it - I figured it was either HWOT or one I had gotten but can't remember the name of! Thanks!
  4. I know there *is* a handwriting curriculum that starts with "c" and then builds other letters from "c" - but I can't remember which one it is. Does that sound familiar to anyone? (Asking for a friend whose son is struggling in public school....) Thanks! Rhonda
  5. Hi Rhonda! I see you logged in recently. Just wondering how things have been going for you!

    Interest driven education and *real* tea-time

    No questions, just re-posting my thanks here, so you won't miss it: Thank you for writing this all out, a-gain!! My youngest (DD) is turning 5 this summer (don't you have one the same age?) and so I have been studiously avoiding the K-8 Board - LOL!!! I know beside your crew that my 2 boys aren't much. But I also know I *have* to keep Kindergarten pared down to the basics if I'm going to make it next year. Actually, I'm pretty much keeping *everything* pared down to the basics - food, clothes, and cleaning, too! (yeah - especially cleaning!!! LOL) Glad to "see" you back on the board! Hope all is well with everyone!!!

  8. :blushing: I informed lovemykids how to read the original of posts that have been edited.

  9. Thanks for your thoughts on Apologia's labs. It's nice to know we aren't the only ones who really do like the text, but not really the labs. (Some are ok, but...)

     

    I know what you mean about high school. We did a handful of labs in Chem and Physics, but with 3 students (sometimes 4) in each lab group, it wasn't necessarily a "hands-on" experience anyway.

  10. Thanks for answering my post about the Red Wagon tutorials. I wasn't sure you would even see it.

  11. Thank you for answering my question about Apologia gen. sci.

  12. Love your family sig descriptions....I bet they're spot on in your home!

  13. Love the words in your signature. I love Superchick! My ds sings the bowling ball song, which I think is hilarious.

  14. Thank you, Nan, for stating this so plainly. I never saw it that way before. I just saw these *LISTS*, and no way to narrow them down. You know, if there were time, I would like to study philosophy - but I'm envisioning "spending half a semester struggling through something we barely got"!!! And, I'm not sure my ds will appreciate it the way *I* would. It was all the novels I saw in WTM that really drew me, but I've been scared if I choose just stories, we'd be missing out. So, thanks for setting me straight!
  15. I do admit I'm worried that my ds will never write his name on his college papers. But, I guess one F will fix that pretty quick - LOL!
