  1. I’m wading through the post above that lists many, many, many online options.... but I’d love to have direct recommendations for online school options for my 7th grader. She’s advanced in math and science. She doesn’t love LA but does well. We would like Christian worldview. It can be video self paced or live. I’m noticing video is cheaper usually than live. Trying to stay in a reasonable price range for all online school. It doesn’t have to all be one company but maybe mostly? Thanks Does anyone have experience with Monarch?
  2. I’m looking for high school online homeschool accredited options for a mildly struggling learner. She’s very diligent and can do self paced, but learning takes a little longer than peers. She stays on grade level mostly in standardized testing, but at times has areas that are tough. Auditory learner primarily but live classes could be a good option but not necessary. Most of the online options I’ve found are targeted to high achieving college bound students.
  3. Looking for ideas for spelling for my 8 year old. She will be 3rd grade in the fall. She has used AAS since Kinder, but she consistently tests lower in only spelling. She really doesn't like AAS either. She did like AAR, but she has finished that program all the way through the last level. Her reading and vocab scores are good, but her spelling continues to lag behind all her other areas. She reads well IMO and tests slightly above grade level in reading. Does anyone have suggestions on a spelling curriculum? She generally learns easily in other areas, and I would say visually is her easiest learning method. She is able to memorize, so I'm wondering if that is why AAS isn't working. Thanks.
  4. Do you have any guides you use to discuss with after each chapter? I feel ill equipped to discuss without a guide. I have been using audio books paired with printed books. Read first then, Listen second. How do you go about knowing which skills to target in comprehension? It’s a struggle for my child.
  5. I am in need of suggestions for literature/reading for upper middle school. We have struggled through Memoria Press literature this year, but it has gotten too difficult. I know we could back up a few grades in MP, but the format isn’t working either. Reading level/comprehension is closer to early middle school, though. Has anyone used a reading/literature program their child thrived with, easy to use but enough content to grow (better for learning challenged students)?
  6. Talk to me about 8th grade Language Arts. I wondering how your gifted/accelerated learner does with Michael Clay Thomas vs Excellence in Literature. Do you prefer one program over the other for 8th grade level. Can you do a mix of the two successfully? I was thinking of going with EIL and adding MCT vocab. Thoughts anyone?
  7. 😀 She is using Cover Story this school year, but she likes it so much she will finish soon.
  8. Has anyone found a good unit study or curriculum on journalism? Looking for something brief to teach the basics to my middle schooler, but she can easily do the work if it is high school level. We will be possibly using Byline next Fall, but I am looking for something much shorted to finish out the school term. She has a opportunity to submit a story for a local magazine, but I want her to know the basics before she starts the writing process. Thanks.

  10. Is there a thread somewhere that has links to writing and poetry contests or publication options? This school year one of the ways I am trying to challenge my 11 year old accelerated/gifted child is asking her to submit for contests or publication when she finishes school early for the day. Her main area of accelerated learning and giftedness is in Language arts and writing. She has been just googling options, and it works ok but I wondered if there is a list somewhere of good options for her. She already submitted for a few, but I know there are probably many more options. Thanks.
  11. Has anyone used an academic counselor? If so who? Would you recommend them? Was it worth the cost? I am needing help to solidify a long term plan for my 11 year old accelerated learner. I feel like I have a good grasp on long term plans for my other 3 children, but I feel I need help with this child. She excels at pretty much everything in life, but her area of giftedness is Language Arts and Music. I know she is easily capable of getting her associates degree by 18, if not sooner.... but I am not quite sure which route to take. Community College locally or online major University? AP classes yes or no? When can they start these? Any parents who can offer suggestions on paths for middle school through high school including AP classes and college credit? We are a Christian homeschool family and I want options that respect out worldview.
  12. Does anyone have suggestions of a program for French similar to homeschool spanish academy online? I like the interactive live teacher who is a native speaker for HSA. Have you used any online programs you could recommend for French that are similar? I want to make sure they are "safe" and have good instruction. Thanks.
