  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Will do! Look forward to your reply when you have time. :) Thanks!

  6. 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! :)
  7. 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
  8. 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!
  9. 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!
  10. 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. :)
  11. 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
  12. OK, thank you. I think I want the middle school text... that's the one I've been searching for anyway. I have noticed that some of the texts/resources say Spectrum but didn't realize that meant they were high school. I was avoiding them anyway because I figured they were different somehow though. :) Does the CDROM have answers to questions, tests, etc, BTW? I had no idea this would be so difficult! :/ *Just noticed that the CD I posted above is Science Spectrum..... Guess I'll keep looking!
  13. That was very helpful info about CLE! I had no idea that the prealgebra was spread over 7 and 8. OK, that helps and I suppose I'll eliminate that option. I guess we could keep going with Lial's for now and I can get a copy of BCM just in case. Although I was leaning toward the Lial's prealgebra as opposed to BCM... not sure if one would be better than the other?
  14. Ok, still trying to figure this out. :) Is this it?... http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51dxT2cHFpL._SL500_SX258_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg
