  1. CC has updated their site and a bunch of links are broken, so I'm not having much luck finding the chages. But Ebay has a good deal on the Veritas cards, so I'll probably just go for it. Or is it better to go ahead and make the leap to the Arts and Facts cards and CC music? I like the idea of being able to get their full resources cds, but at the same time, if it's just too different and make me crazy without the 4th edition guide, then I'll save myself the $60 and stick with VP. Any thoughts?
  2. I picked up a copy of the old 2nd edition guide for $5, which means I can afford to get the songs and such. But that edition used the old Veritas timeline cards. I don't know if the songs CD changed when CC made their own timeline. Can anyone tell me what resources I'll need to do the 2nd edition curriculum and whether they're still available? Thanks!
  3. Another cooperative is Flash Point. Maybe on the older end. Lost Cities seconded. They're probably getting close to ready for Stone Age. When they're preteens, Shadows over Camelot is a challenging and complex cooperative with the great medieval knights theme stuff boys love.
  4. I know some states are very strict about qualifying parents to home school and I want to be prepared no matter where we move when my husband finishes school. If there are states that require college classes in education or teacher certification, I'm gonna be in trouble although I have a Master's degree in Anthropology. Has anyone found it useful to study for and take the National Teachers Exam? Are there states where I would need a full certification, or does every state have some way around it? What study methods/online programs/etc are useful to demonstrate qualification?
  5. Yeah, in fact, those screens are one of the things that you can have your workplace supply as a reasonable accommodation for a migraine disability. So if the government will pay for them (and most other employers), then you know they probably do contribute to migraine avoidance.
  6. Thanks all! I think I'll look at getting a simple color inkjet just for our unavoidable color jobs and keep on loving our laser for b/w. Also, the pre-k blog suggestions were great!
  7. I don't even know my triggers, so I'm jealous you've got one pinned down. But besides adjusting the brightness, if it changed when you changed monitor types, I'd suspect that the flicker rate (pixel refreshes or something or other) may be different and that could be affecting you. Visual triggers are very common, so if you know how long you can push it before you get hit, that's great! Good luck! I know I'm no help, really, but we mammas hiding in the dark have got to stick together. :001_smile:
  8. Just wanted to clarify--the Brother you had was an inkjet and you do recommend that brand? What's the printer you don't like now? Our b/w laser jet is a Brother, and I do like that brand from our experience thus far.
  9. Hey all! This isn't classical-related at all, but this forum is my go-to for everything since you give such great advice. I'm cross-posting this from the curriculum board since it's pretty general. So three questions: 1. We have a B/W laser printer that scans in color, but I'm finding so many wonderful file folder games and such that I really want to be able to just print in color instead of spending hours with colored pencils. So, I don't need an all-in-one or anything, just a basic color printer that can handle cardstock for things I don't want to laminate. Any recommendation

  11. My mom tells a story of coming home from school bawling because "Charlotte died" and couldn't get out any other word to explain. Her mom called the teacher worried that a fellow student had passed away only to find out that they'd been reading Charlotte's Web in class. :001_smile: I do think kids should be old enough to talk through sad endings before they're subjected to them, though I think that's really dependent on the kid.
  12. :lol::lol::lol: I think I better save up for more book shelves, too! Thanks so much--you're clearly a book-lover after my own heart. I think it's a great point, though, to just start collecting now as the opportunities present themselves.
  13. Ok, I know it's a big investment, especially when everything is available online and the world changes quickly, but when I was growing up in the 80s, we had a 50s era Worldbook Set and I spent hours pouring over it. I particularly remember doing that in middle school. So here's my question--obviously if I can find a newish set at a garage sale it'll save a fortune over the $1k it sells for new, but I'm hoping we can start putting away a little bit of money each year toward a set. At what age do you think it becomes useful for kids? Our oldest is 2, so we've got years and years t
  14. On my computer it just took a long time to load. Click it then come back to another tab/window and do something else for a few minutes. Eventually it should show up. Not sure why, but they all seemed to load slower than most pdf docs. Maybe the version they used?
