  1. RSO is coming out with Astronomy 2 on Aug. 21st. There isn't much info out yet, but I guess they are hoping to have a supply list available next week.
  2. Just wanted to update that their website is up and running again.
  3. Sounds like a visual spatial learner. Check out this post for some ideas: http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/topic/153797-if-you-have-a-visual-spatial-learner-which-curriculum-works-best/ This blog also has a lot of great tips: http://dancing-with-dragons.blogspot.com/2012/07/teaching-visual-spatial-learner-when.html
  4. I have seen this one for life science: http://wildoakacademy.blogspot.com/2011/03/cpo-life-science-supply-list.html She also shared her schedule here: http://wildoakacademy.blogspot.com/2011/03/cpo-life-science-part-one.html
  5. You may find a few good ones at Wee Folk Art State Studies . Each week covers a few states with picture books, mapping, activities, etc.
  6. We haven't used it, but there is this https://textilelearning.com/paleontology
  7. My son prefers to learn/study history by watching documentaries, making lapbooks, and other hands on projects. A favorite around here are Homeschool in the Woods Time Travelers.
  8. I just saw that Onenote now allows users to insert videos! Thought there may be others here who would appreciate this new feature ;) This will come in handy when I'm planning for next year!
  9. Two that I have looked at are the Harmony Fine Art Geography and the Build Your Library Gr. 7. Not sure if either of those are what you are looking for.
  10. Over on Our Journey Westward, she has a blog post with a lot of math activities and links to living books, games, etc. http://ourjourneywestward.com/living-math-activities/
  11. My daughter loves her tablet and has tried a few different softwares and the one she prefers is Paint Tool SAI. She has found a number of tutorials on YouTube to follow.
  12. Just wanted to share that you can get a free download of Trail Guide to US Geography until 9/11 at Homeschool Giveaways. http://homeschoolgiveaways.com/2015/09/free-trail-guide-to-u-s-geography-15-value/
  13. I came across this tutorial today and thought it may be helpful for some folks: http://www.resilienthomeschool.com/onenote-for-homeschool/
  14. Those are great! She definitely has a talent :) Is this something that she may be interested in as a career? Maybe looking and contacting various Special Effects schools/colleges may help with ideas on how to continue to develop her skills. Douglas is one that my adult son had considered. When we spoke with them they were very helpful.
  15. My daughter has an interest in this as well. Have you seen this article?
  16. If you are interested in US geography, I recently saw this State Study over at Wee Folk Art. Looks really nice and gentle.
  17. I am trying to pull together the same thing. A couple places that I have found useful resources are Eclectic Homeschool's CPO Physical Science plan and Guest Hollow's Physics - both the 7th grade and the younger kids physics. I'm thinking that I may use Mr.Q for a spine and add in some Bite Size Physics & living books. I haven't totally planned it out, so I will definitely be watching this thread.
  18. Hmmm...now I'm rethinking next year! lol. It looks great!
  19. Not sure if it is too young, but Our Animal Friends looks interesting.
  20. My son and I actually went to an open house today, and that group was associated with 4H...so that may be another place to look for a group.
  21. I have GEMS Life Through Time sitting on the shelf. It looks pretty good and hope to pull it out for a fun unit study next year. Possibly with Voyages Through Time.
  22. At http://www.mosdospress.comyou can select the grade level you are interested in and on the following page, bottom right side, you can find links to samples of the book. I wish they had better samples of the workbooks, but you can see some at http://www.mosdospress.com/workbook_edition.php
  23. I'm bummed too. I'm thinking I may switch to Mosdos with some Bravewriter added in.
  24. I think this is what we are doing for 9th grade. TT Geometry World History 1 using Our Human Story Marine Biology OM Hero's Journey Lit & Comp with some BW added in Some .5 credits she would like to add in are: Photography Special Effects Fashion through the Ages American Civil War
