  1. I've also been told no due to Covid (only their students and teachers allowed in the building this year). I'm still looking for a place.
  2. Hi Lori, My son has taken basic and now intermediate grammar with Ms. Otto and I think it is a great class. It's a very straightforward and clear presentation of grammar, and the homework is just the right amount to solidify the concepts. He finds the live classes engaging. Lukeion also offers a great class called Barbarian Diagrammarian. It's more condensed than the WTMA classes (covers more in less time). My older son took that class.
  3. Thanks so much for the feedback and suggestions. I'll look into these.
  4. Hi All, I'm looking for an on-line latin class for next year for my rising 6th grader. Does anyone have experience with Latin 1 through WTMA or Schole Academy? I'm a big fan of Lukeoin, but I'm not sure if he's ready for the work load of their classes. Any other suggestions? Thanks!
  5. My 13 yo DS loves to write and is currently writing a novel. If it was up to him, he would spend most of his time reading and writing. If you also have a child that loves to write, which online classes have worked well for your child? I'll take any advice on how to nurture a writer. Also, has anyone used Merlyn's Pen? Thanks!
  6. Thanks for the feedback. My son also went to CTY one summer and his reaction was mixed. He doesn't want to go back to CTY either.
  7. Thanks all for the feedback. We are campers too. I'm sure some of their fondest memories will be of camping.
  8. Hello All, I am considering NW CTD summer camp for my 7th grader and I'm wondering if anyone has sent their child to that summer camp. Did your child enjoy it? What was their experience like? Also, what are everyone's summer plans? Camps? Travel? I am torn between just having a relaxed summer at home, and signing them up for more structured camps. My son is a reader and writer, and he would be happy to just stay home and read books and write his stories. However, since we homeschool he already does quite a bit of that. Thanks, Jean
  9. I am looking for a live on-line Latin 1 class for my 9 year old that he could take in the winter and/or spring. It seems most classes are either year-long, or part 1 is only offered in the fall. Is anyone aware of a beginning Latin class he could take ? Thanks!
  10. Does anyone have suggestions for either historical fiction, or non-fiction, audio books? My son is asking for "more history" for the time we spend in the car listening to audio books. I'm looking for suggestions other than Jim Weiss, or SOTW (which we have). Thanks!
  11. I'm looking for some suggestions for documentaries about astronomy. We really enjoyed Roving Mars and When We Left Earth. What are some others your family has enjoyed? Thanks, Jean
  12. Bean, Which human history timeline book are you referring to? I'm looking for one and would love a rec. Thanks, Jean
  13. Thank you for all the great suggestions. He loves stories of all kinds (for example, he loves "Arabian Nights" by Tarnowska), but seems most interested in greek and roman mythology right now. I'd love to hear about the other resources (not greek and roman) too.
