  1. How would you record things that have no book? My son is going to do Young Marines and I know my PS gives ROTC class credit so I'm planning on counting his Young Marines as class credit. I'm planning on doing my own Home Economics as well. Do I just need to estimate and give him credit when I think he's covered enough or do I need to show proof of hours? Never having done this before I don't want to get to the end and be up a creek. I'm sorry to say that I don't know how to do an excel spreadsheet.
  2. What are some ways that you can keep track of hours to be able to assign credit for the transcript? I'm not usually too organized but I need some sort of easy system to keep track of hours for classes/activities to be able to report on my son's transcript. He's starting 9th grade and I want to be sure I keep track of things so I don't get in over my head and mess something up. TIA
  3. Magic School Bus videos are great for Science. My oldest kids (college graduates) said the other day that most of what they've learned about Science is from Magic School Bus lol. I would sometimes play one during lunch time. You could also do some videos for History like "Libertys Kids". With the ages of your kids I would mostly plan on the basics, Math & LA. I wouldn't even worry about the Science and History everyday. Maybe you could do a read aloud in the morning while they colored or something. You don't have to do everything at these ages. Relax and enjoy your kids 🙂
  4. Thank you for this question OP. If I can add a couple of questions. Do public schools test for dyslexia or should I go somewhere else? What do I look for to get good testing but on a limited budget.
  5. My youngest 3 are 12, 13, 14 yrs old. They do not get paid to do chores around the house. They help with bathrooms, mop, sweep etc. It's part of being a family and sharing the load. I've been working them into doing their own laundry as well. We pay for family events like movies, zoo etc. When it comes to things they want to do or buy on their own, they pay for it. They have opportunities to cut grass for pay. They have also dog sat for neighbors for pay. This is where they get their money for things they want to buy or do. I might add that they tithe off they money they earn first. They have saved and bought things such as compound bow, PS4, air soft guns and gear. If they want to go do airsoft events it's $20 and they need to pay for this. My 12 and 14 year olds are boys and they combine their money and work together. They decided to room together and make the other room a "man cave" and have bought things like the PS4, TV, TV stand etc. They are learning the value of hard work, saving money and helping without pay because it's the right thing to do. That's the way we do things. I hope this helps 🙂

  7. I'm looking at Beautiful Feet Geography for my 7th and 8th grader and hoping Guest Hollow has theirs for my 9th grader. I'm thinking between the 2 programs that we should cover it pretty well. I just saw Guest Hollow has a geography for younger kids also.
  8. I was looking at Dive Science. I don't know much about it but it seems to be from a Christian worldview. They have Biology and is self paced.
  9. My DS who is in 6th this year will finish CLE Math 6. When looking into next year do I just continue with CLE 7 or move into a pre-algebra in something else? I'm not sure where to go from here. He does't have any trouble with his Math and it comes pretty easy so far. He grades his own work, checks with me if he doesn't get something and primarily gets in the 90's on his tests.
