  1. I’d love an invite, as well, when it’s back up and running. Thanks!
  2. It’s our main math curriculum. She supplements with Mathmania because she loves it. I usually stay nearby to help her not dawdle all day.
  3. Language Arts: Dictation Day by Day Math: finish BA 3 (at end of B now) and start 4 History: Story of the World 2 violin, gymnastics, and piano lessons. Lots of books, field trips, and time outdoors
  4. California residents can submit a position letter (OPPOSE) for bills AB 2756 & AB 2926 on the Education Committee's website. aedn.assembly.ca.gov/committeehome
  5. I have a 17yo, a 14yo, and a 5yo so it feels like I’m having a do-over. We used Singapore, then continued on with the AOPS sequence for the oldest, and Jacobs/Foerster with the second due to differences in learning styles. With my 5yo, we’re using Miquon and BA, and enjoying both so far.
  6. I asked my 5yo what she would recommend, and she said: Humphreys series (about a classroom hamster) Magic School Bus books Kingdom of Wrenly Mr. Popper’s Penguins Henry & Ribsy Sir Cumference
  7. 14yo is really wanting to do full time de, so she’s taking the chspe to be able to do so in the fall. We might still do AP LIt at home. First grade plans for 5yo: Math: BA 3 Violin and piano lessons Gymnastics Everything else: lots of reading and exploring outside.
  8. I wanted to keep things simple and short because I work from home. My 5yo reads pretty widely, and she has been reading the Let's Read and Find out series and Story of the World- along with lots of fiction- on her own for a while now. So I thought we only needed to do math together. But despite her love for math, she would find a way to draw it out so one sheet of Miquon green would take 90 minutes. It took a while for me to realize that what she's really wanting is individual attention. So we added in The Human Body book and Japanese,(Human Japanese and Youtube videos) and she's finishing it all in the 90 minutes (including jumping jacks, headstands, and dances in between!) we had been spending on math. And we’re both much happier! Yesterday, while we were talking about her older sister helping tutor at an elementary school, she piped up, "Oh, can I volunteer and teach the little kids multiplication and fractions?"
  9. You’ve raised quite a remarkable young man. I especially loved the end of the article about him thanking his professor.
  10. I keep visiting this thread to motivate myself to start my part off the app, but the part of me who's in denial that my oldest will be a senior in the fall has the upper hand. It's as if my not doing my counselor letter and such, yet, will delay what's inevitable.
  11. My youngest wrote in her dad's Father's Day card: "Please have donuts. Love, me." She never writes anything conventional on special occasion cards.
  12. Dd just finished. She said they were only given two 5-minute breaks. She went to the bathroom during the second one, and by the time she got back, they'd already started. Oops!
  13. Thank you all for weighing in. It was a bit disappointing for the children's section staff and the cashier to agree with us, only to have the manager essentially say, "I know what the sign says but i can't honor it."
