  1. My kids are 15, 13, and 8. We are working our way through the Little House books, but occasionally we have to wait on one from the library, so we've added others. Johnny Tremain Carry On, Mr. Bowditch The Great Trouble: A Mystery of London, the Blue Death and a Boy Called Eel Jefferson Son's We're a history bunch if you can't tell. :laugh:
  2. Homeschool Connections live courses show the instructor, but not the students (their questions show up in the chat box and the teacher typically reads them aloud). HSC is Catholic based.
  3. If your kids are STEM kids, I think it wouldn't be enough for middle school. My middle schoolers aren't science-y kids. I cannot picture either of them going into any type of science related field AT ALL!!! I think it is enough of the nuts and bolts for them. I do require extra reading from library books and an extra experiment with each chapter (in addition to the one in the lab book). Now, my first grader is following right along. He is definitely more science minded. I doubt I will get away with using them again when he is closer to middle school. He will probably be tagging along i
  4. Can you please tell me about blogs you read regularly? I am looking specifically for blogs on homeschooling and parenting preschoolers. My goal is to ask a few bloggers if they would review my craft kits and perhaps do a giveaway on their blog. Thanks for you help.
  5. I feel like we are slacking after reading most of these lists, but here's ours. For DD11 Math: Saxon 7/6 Grammar: Intermediate Language Lessons Writing: Homeschool Connections Class online class Simplified Writing for Middle School, An All Encompassing Foundational Middle School Writing Course Spelling: All About Spelling (starting at the beginning and seeing how far we can get--her spelling is atrocious) History: RC History: Volume 3 - 1066-1699 Geography: Map Trek to go along with History and also MCP's Maps, Charts and Graphs Eastern Hemisphere Science: RS4K Chemistry followed by
  6. http://www.kristinscraftsforkids.blogspot.com Prepackaged craft kits for preschoolers. Each craft comes with a book suggestion (or two) and an extra activity that you could do to enrich the experience. It's not really "school-y" but would give your younger DD something special to do without the formal schooling aspect.
  7. This makes me teary-eyed, :crying: in a good way! Not only are you a charter member, you are the reason I'm doing this. :hurray: I am so happy that the crafts are meeting your needs. Would it be ok if I quoted your post (from above) and put it on my blog/FB page? I don't have many reviews other than the generic "we love these!" which is nice but it doesn't really give parents a good idea as to why they should purchase, KWIM? I'm putting the March kits together in the morning and getting them shipped hopefully either tomorrow night or Tuesday morning.
  8. It's going really well. Thank you for asking. You can order through the blog, but I just checked and you can't see the buttons, only the post. I guess that means you need a computer. Or send me a FB message, and I can pm you my pp address. That would work too. :)
  9. There is something about the "&" in my username that won't allow pm's. Why I could choose it in my username to begin with is beyond me, but whatever. I have so many better things to gripe about. :tongue_smilie: Anyway, yes, we cut two or three apples and dug out the seeds. Then for the days after, I would just let him get whatever he grabbed and we would put them in the middle of the table. I would tell him to count them. So let's say there were 9. Then I would tell him to choose some for me (he gave me 3) and he got the rest. Then we counted his plus mine equaled 9. Put them
  10. I have a ker who is doing Saxon 1 (he did Saxon K in his preschool program). Thread jack: :) With the apple seeds, I used actual apple seeds and DS and I took turns dividing them. Say we had 6 seeds. He would go first and take 4 and then that left me with 2. Then I would go. I always made sure that we didn't end up with the same problem. It helped him to understand. And I scribe for him. The writing would be too much for my guy!
  11. Thank you so much! I picked them up last time they were free, but then forgot to download them and the link expired! Now, I'm going home and downloading them first thing.
  12. Mother of Divine Grace may be an option as well. It is Charlotte Mason meets Classical meets Catholic.
  13. I plan it so that 3-5 yo could do the crafts with parental assistance (help cutting and following directions depending on the child), but I think that most of the things I planned would work up to 8 yo and maybe even older if the child wanted to embellish the original craft. I plan on my soon-to-be 11 yo doing the crafts and helping 6 yo DS do them as well. Examples: tissue paper mosaic of Mary, Mother of God playdough and popsicle sticks for St. Peter Paper plate craft for conversion of St. Paul Handprint dove for Baptism of the Lord
