  1. I have not heard of this, but this is quite an interesting idea. I'm all ears.
  2. I will try to write more tomorrow, but wanted to recommend The Daily Poem podcast by CiRCE.
  3. AoPS Alcumus is free. Also free videos that coordinates with the texts on the AoPS site. https://artofproblemsolving.com/videos Pre-A and up Eddie Woo has great videos on YouTube for math as well. CNN10 has free daily kids news. CiRCE posts a daily poem on their site- https://shows.pippa.io/the-daily-poem Duolingo is free and offers a lot of languages. Seterra is a great free site for geography.
  4. I think just reading widely and listening to audiobooks at a higher level than reading ability can't help but improve scores. I’ve never heard of readtheory.org How does that site work?
  5. Any particular thing you use to test their knowledge or offer the student for these reviews?
  6. I second this. When we come a topic my son doesn't understand and I am unable to teach it and we cannot or don't want to wait for ”Professor Daddy” to explain it we’ve been able to find (usually) a multitude of videos on YouTube that explain the topic. When he was little we went down the math picture book rabbit hole. Many of these titles are listed in SWB’s WTM book. Maybe you could watch some videos and then teach a few concepts? I have seen a lot of fruit from this.
  7. Was it just to be a cute photo op? Obviously the toddler isn’t preparing the bottle and mom/dad/caregiver was nearby to take the photo(s).
  8. Any British humor? I loved watching Mr. Bean when I was younger.
  9. We are about 50 lessons into Getting Started With Latin. My son has does well with it. For a time I was adding all of the practice sentences/vocabulary into Anki App on my phone for him to use. We haven't used the Anki deck as much as I'd like. I forget about it, honestly. Our routine at the moment is my husband who took 4 years of Latin in high school teaches our ds on Monday evenings 4-5 new lessons. Then he makes flashcards to review the grammar/vocabulary throughout the week. Since my husband started making the flashcards to review I think our Anki has fallen out of use. Now I am be
  10. Now that you've all had a chance to do it for a few weeks what do you think?
  11. It's been live more than a week now. I’d love to hear what everyone thinks. My son has an 8-day streak now.
  12. Very fascinating. My son now 10 is 2E, they diagnosis was specific learning disability-reading, but he doesn't seem to have much issue with reading now. He is very much a visual thinker. He still has much difficulty with spelling though.
  13. Most programs have placement tests. If we use say Singapore for awhile then want to jump to AoPS I can look at their ”Are you ready for ___?” test. We also use Khan Academy course challenges to see what if anything he has missed in a grade level. My son is accelerated and sometimes he will work on a grade level and seem stuck for a bit then we switch to a different format and he has a jump in understanding. Then will plateau again, etc. We jump all over, but we have printed out all the math standards from our state Department of Education and use Khan to help make sure he is solid in all areas
