  1. Ok, I'm back. :) Thanks so much for the input! My daughter hasn't had extensive Orton Gillingham remediation, unfortunately. She had an IEP in her public school last year and was getting remediation and "intervention" but I don't think any of it was dyslexia specific. She's doing well though and making progress. We have done some placement testing and she did pass the Barton screening as well as the placement test for High Noon Reading Level 1. The High Noon placement test says I should test her for level 2 but where do I find that test? The level 1 placement test is INSIDE the level
  2. My daughter was in public school for 6th grade last year but I think we are bringing her home again for school this year. We are waiting for a neuropsych report but she was tested in 3rd grade and we know she has dyslexia and low working memory. Last year was kind of rough for her so while I want to try and get caught up on some things and certainly not lose ground, I also want to take it easy and focus on her emotional/mental health and general wellbeing, if that make sense. Having said that, as expected, she is definitely behind in reading and everything language arts but closer to gra
  3. Thank you both so much for your feedback! No, we haven't done LiPS. I can't remember exactly why I decided to go with High Noon instead... might've been that I wasn't sure if we really needed LiPS and also the cost factor? I would still consider LiPS, and Barton for that matter, but I think we're going to try High Noon first. I really hope it's what we need. I can't send it back if it's the wrong level b/c I got it used....but I got a really good deal so I'll just resell if necessary. I only have the teacher book and student book so far. I'd really like to get the workbook and reade
  4. Hi! :) Thanks for your reply and helpful input, as usual. I have borrowed several books from the library and read parts that I found helpful....but have yet to read one in its entirety. They're generally very large books lol! I should probably buy one or two to keep as references. Overcoming Dyslexia seemed like a good one... What other books would be favorites? Thanks for the advice on guessing. I am anxious to start High Noon but need to figure out which level. Since I already have level 1 we could go ahead and start it but I don't want to waste time if she'd be ready for level 2. H
  5. My 5th grade dd has dylslexia as well as some working memory and auditory processing issues (I guess they all go together). I decided to try High Noon to help her catch up a bit with her reading and I bought level 1 (haven't started it yet) but I'm wondering if I should've bought level 2. She took the placement test and was able to read and understand the first 3 paragraphs and read but did not understand the 4th. Even with the ones she understood, she did read a few word incorrectly and did some word replacement. She doesn't replace words with similar meaning words - she replaces them with si
  6. Will do! Look forward to your reply when you have time. :) Thanks!

  8. Thank you both! So far we're feeling better about Glencoe and you helped confirm that we shouldn't jump ship and get one of the other programs just yet! Thank you! :)
  9. I just bought Glencoe World Geography for my 8th grader and when it arrived in the mail we were both overwhelmed by this massive 900 page book. We flipped through it and neither of us are exactly excited about it. The photos and maps are great but it's...just...so...much! And frankly, from just reading a few bits and pieces of the text, it just didn't seem very interesting either. I'm trying to decide if we should give it a chance or find something else. I'm liking the looks of Power Basics World Geography and Discovering the World of Geography. Can anyone compare them? I'm thinking
  10. Going through the chapter reviews to find gaps/weaknesses sounds like a good idea! I bought copies of Lial's BCM and prealgebra AND the solutions manuals.... all for under $25 (Amazon and eBay)! :) I'm also working on buying the Key to books so we should be all set! Im just hoping that he continues to like Lial's! Thanks again, everyone!
  11. Well I think I found it but not as cheap as I hoped ($36). The description says...."Holt Science & Technology: Chapter Resources CD-ROM Physical Science Audio CD – Audiobook, January 1, 2007". BTW, can you, or anyone, tell me if the experiments are doable at home? I already have Apologia so if I don't get this figured out soon I'll just use that lol!
  12. Thank you so much for taking the time to lay this all out for me! :) It's making more sense to me now. Yay!!! BTW, would you advise getting the Lial's prealgebra and BCM solutions manuals? Thank you SO much for your help! ALL the replies have been extremely helpful. :)
  13. OK, so yes, I've noticed that both Lial's BCM and prealgebra can be found at very cheap prices so I'll get both of those. (Do I need the solutions manuals? I have the one for Introductory Algebra.) I'm just not sure if I want to keep going with the Algebra or make one of those our main text. I looked at the Key to books and while each individual workbook is cheap, it would get expensive pretty quickly for me to get every workbook and answer key for several topics (unless I found some amazing deals). I think the books look great though so I'm not sure what to do about that. Now that
