  1. Y'all are too organized for me LOL. We get a side of beef every year. I put all the ground beef in the bottom drawer then a Willy nilly the rest as it fit trying to attempt to keep like items together but by the end everything gets shoved in whatever cranny it will fit in. Then the fun comes when I meal prep for the week. I tell one of my kids to go to the freezer and name 5 meats they see and then I plan around that. I know. I know. You are jealous!
  2. I'm brushing up on TWTM and curriculum/lesson planning for the coming year and had a question. Do you plan for your kids to complete one lesson a day (or more) or do you go by a set time? FOr example, in TWTM for math they suggest 45-60 minutes per day. Most of the time one lesson does not take 45-60 minutes. Do you continue on with the next lesson? Have a different activity lined up for that extra time? Or just move on? Math is really the only subject I have wondered about. Not too concerned with the others. TIA
  3. I am embarrassed to say that after some testing recently DS (6th) and DD (6th) scored very poorly in grammar (punctuation, usage, etc). I cringe to type this-but testing showed on like a 2nd-3rd grade level and they are pretty bright kids and scored well above average in every other area! We have been using Rod and Staff which I had been ok with but after seeing the results they both said that they didnt feel like they were retaining or learning anything. Ugh... So, now I am ready to switch to something else and get this show on the road! I want them to be able to write and have good grammar! Ive read several reviews on here and have been looking at possibly MCT. However, the scheduling looks a little confusing and without being able to put my hands on it I am having a hard time figuring it out. Also, what level would you start on? The 1st level seems so basic and young for them but Im not sure! I also had someone recomend IEW Fix-it grammar but I have not seen it either. What would you do!?
  4. We tried to book this but they were sold out!
  5. A friend and I are getting away for the weekend. It is much needed. I have actually never been on a girls/moms only weekend so I am really looking forward to it. Any must see places? Most of what I keep seeing are places to eat or drink (not complaining LOL), but what are your favorites?
  6. I have been looking all morning and can not find what I am looking for. Maybe it isnt available anywhere but I thought if anyone would know, it would be someone here. DS is in Algebra (Jacob's) and is struggling a little bit with graphing linear equations. Specifically finding the slope and y intercept and knowing how and when to change the equation and knowing how to get it to the point of graphing. I have shown him multiple times, I have even made him a little "cheat sheet" and he just has to be walked through it over and over every step of the way. This is my kid who is very "math brained" but for some reason this just isnt taking hold and I do not want to move on until he completely understands the concepts. So...are there any videos or extra topic specific curriculum you know of that we could use for extra practice? I really dont want to make something myself and obviously he needs to read/listen to someone other than me. We have tried the videos on Ask Dr. Callahan, he doesnt care for them. I think he really just needs more practice than the book has for now before we move on. Thoughts? TIA

  8. One more question from the last post. How does it work to add high school equivalent courses when they are taken before? Are they just listed as extra courses?
  9. Great info, thanks. Excuse my ignorence as I'm trying to learn all of this, but how does duel enrollment in CaL 3-differencial equAtions work if he hasn't taken the equivalent college prerequisites (college algebra, cal1, cal2)?
  10. Try Torrid. I used to despise jean shopping and I will never buy jeans anywhere else. They only sell for the size 10 and up crowd and they make every size in short, regular, and long. They are made for curvy girls and are very flattering.
  11. He is still working to complete Jacob's but does well. I rarely have to step in and offer any help and he has scored As and Bs on all of the tests so far.We do not use the videos so he is basically just reading and doing it independently. I have looked at AOPs and was considering going that route even before we started Jacob's but it made me nervous. He has always been interested in computer science/engineering and has done very well with math, but sometimes he does bore of it, if that makes sense? So, I was afraid that AOPs might take the fun out of it? But, maybe it is the opposite and it is exactly what he needs. If you had already completed Jacob's would you go into the Intro to Algebra course? Or into one of the other courses from Geometry on?
  12. This is why I posted! Could you elaborate? I would love to look into some other options. I'm just not familiar with what is out there.
  13. That title is a mouthful, isnt it?! I know there are multiple posts discussing math sequence but I am not finding what I need in relation to my child. DS is currently in 6th grade and will finish Jacob's Elementary Algebra this year. I am at a loss of what the best thing to do moving forward. I know he is only in 6th so transcripts are not even on the horizon yet, but I dont want there to be a problem because he is ahead later when we do need them. So I guess my first question is, where would you go after Jacob's Algebra? What would be your sequence going forward into highschool with this much time left? Stopping math is not an option. Secondly, If your child completes Algebra in 6th grade, how does that work transcript wise in the future when normally Algebra would be counted around 9th?
  14. Has anyone used VP Composition? I am not seeing any reviews on it at all. We are currently using R&S English level 6, but frankly DS is tired of it and I have to admit is has gone way farther than I ever would have anticipated. Looking ahead for 7th grade grammar and beyond. Thoughts?
