  1. My kids have used CLE math for years and it works really well for us. HOWEVER, my ADD 5th grader is constantly losing his workbooks. I’m considering switching to a math I can print out at home and hand him one lesson at a time. Can anyone suggest a spiral math program that is available as a PDF? We supplement with BA Online, but he really needs the review of other topics in each lesson. Thanks!
  2. Thanks! I also thought I’d add that we’ll have our small dog with us on the trip. So I suppose I need to look up rules for having dogs in some of the national parks if we’re going to stop at some.
  3. Our family of five was planning to fly from SoCal to the Midwest in August, but we’re now considering borrowing a friend’s RV and driving the 25+ hours. I’d love some tips from those who have done this before. How do you plan overnight stops? Meals? Ideally this trip would be as budget-friendly as possible. Also, we’re going there to visit family, so while we’d like to see some sights on the way (and back), this is primarily just to get us there and avoid air travel. Thanks!
  4. I use paper surgical tape along the top of my mask if I’m going to be wearing it longer than ten minutes.
  5. It’s been ages since I’ve posted here, but I have a question and the search function isn’t working for me right now. My daughter is finishing up 6th grade and is asking for Latin, which we haven’t done at all. I don’t know any Latin, but she’s showing interest because her friends are learning. What can you recommend for her to try? She’s a pretty independent worker when it comes to school work. I’d love some ideas, and I knew you all would be able to help! Thanks!
  6. It’s been ages since I’ve been on here but I was thinking tonight about a route to work up to the classics. I admittedly don’t personally read very challenging literature (working on that!) and my older kids are in 4th and 6th grades. I remember reading a while back a thread about working up to reading the classics, and several people had sort of creates classifications of books to get there. For example, Winnie the Pooh, Secret Garden, on up to Jane Austen, etc. Does anyone happen to know how to find that thread? Or can we start a new one? Specifically I’m thinking for read aloud suggest
  7. Cute!! I usually like to keep my shoulders out of the sun, but I might need to get a couple of these. Thanks!
  8. Thanks! I’ll give lands end a try. How about graphic tees?
  9. YYou all have been so helpful in the past, and I just ordered several more linen blend shorts from Old Navy. But now I’m needing some new t-shirts and I’d love some recommendations. I’m an XL usually, and don’t really love shirts that are super fitted. It’s much easier when someone points me in the right direction. Thanks!
  10. We recently watched Akeelah and the Bee and really enjoyed it.
  11. Ok, thanks! I don’t mind spending the money if there isn’t going to be an easy replacement. I borrowed Saxon from our lending library but it just looks overwhelming to me without white space to work problems. We may give it a try for a month or so since DD is almost finished with CLE 500s but I’ll expect to buy 600s soon.
  12. We’ve been loving CLE math for several years, but I’m looking into other maths that our charter school would pay for. So I’m looking for something secular. What DD likes about CLE is that it’s written to the student and has room to work the problems. Also, the spiral approach works well for her. Any ideas? Thanks!
  13. My friend and I are going to teach a co-op class next year based on picture book biographies for grades 4-6. We were inspired by a recent Read Aloud Revival podcast about how these type of books can be great for upper elementary age kids. However, I'm having a hard time coming up with a fun name for the class. Any ideas? The plan is that we'll read a picture book biography and then do some related activities. Also, if you have specific suggestions for the class we'd love some input! Thanks!
  14. This is the second year we’ve used it, and have used or are using levels 1-5. Is it perfect? No, not for us. But for our family it’s the one the kids enjoy and the one that’s getting done. My 8 year old needed a different spelling program, so we skip the spelling in his book and instead use Spelling You See. We really make the curriculum work for us, not using it as something we need to do exactly as it’s written. Thankfully, you can view levels 1-5 in PDF and print what you want to give it a try. But in general we’ve been very happy and continue to purchase the hard copies. We’ve also done so
