  1. My daughter is interested in some of the online courses at https://www.redcross.org/. Does anyone have experience with any of their courses?
  2. I remember learning about a site that sells affordable science materials but I can't remember the name! I don't remember if it was for homeschoolers or not but they had things like geodes, owl pellets, some woodworking kits, woodburning, honeycomb kits?, maybe candle making materials too. It's been some years and I just can't seem to find it in my searching. Anyone leads would help!
  3. I don't need to have testing done but I am am interested in testing my 11 and 9 year old for myself. Are there any standardized (or standardized-like) tests online I can use or order to check myself?
  4. Do you think CAP Book 1 would be too young for her? I was wondering if she and her younger brother in third grade could actually do it together because they like working together sometimes.
  5. I'm looking for narrative non-fiction or any true books for grades 4-7. Do you have any good recommendations? I've made this list so far. The Finest Hours (Young Reader's Edition) A Long Walk to Water The Elephant Whisperer The Land I Lost Dolphin Adventure In The Heart of the Sea Hidden Figures: The Young Reader's Edition Stolen into Slavery The Distance Between Us Shoe Dog: Young Reader's Edition Finding Gobi Samurai Rising A Storm Too Soon The Boy Who Harnassed the Wind The Omnivore's Dilemma I Am Malala Li
  6. My DD10 will be going into 5th grade next year and has very limited writing experience. She does some very very basic writing on her own and basically has told me she needs to know how to spell more and write better. I think she needs more independent work too. For the last three years, she's been going to a second language school in the morning. So we homeschool in the afternoons or on weekends. I thought WWE was a good fit since lessons were short and some years, we could do two lessons a day on weekends or it was easy to do a lesson a day in the afternoons but we're growing bored of WWE
  7. I don't know how much more of WWE we can do. My DD10 has done three levels and I am just unsure if I want to go to level 4 with her or use any more levels with DS8. It doesn't seem like it would work as well for him. Would they both be able to start in CAP Book 1 and could they do it together? As I see it says for grades 3-5. Or should DD10 start in book 2 after WWE3. Other suggestions are welcome. I'm trying to figure out where to go from here.
  8. I'm looking into switching to another spelling program that's more independent and just read an old thread about R&S that got me thinking maybe I should make a switch since we just finished level 3 today. I'm wondering which level I should go to after going through AAS Level 3 and how it compares? Or are there any other good independent spelling programs? I haven't looked through AAS4 yet but I'm starting to feel like it's too teacher intensive than they need (though we do our own modified version.) and we already do too many other teacher intensive things. The last steps, I felt lik
  9. We're overseas. Are the WTMA classes on US time?
