  1. My 16-year-old will sleep through alarms. I was the same way as an adolescent. My father woke me up every day to go to school throughout high school, so I don't push it. My husband wakes him up at 6 AM as he's slow as molasses and I wake up 45 minutes later to prepare school lunches for him and my youngest daughter.

Dolciani - he's finishing the latter part of this book, plus History using K12 The Human Odyssey Vol. 2, K12 Intermediate World History B workbook and supplementary books: Pirates, The Renaissance, and Slavery Writing With Skill Level 2 Evan-Moor 7 Continents: South America (ds loves this, and learns about both physical and political geography) Poetry w/ A Harp and The Laurel Wreath Living science and biography books Religious Education: Understanding the Scriptures w/ Scott Hahn through MyCatholicFaithDelivered.com As for extracurriculars, ds is in: Band (he's auditioning for Honors clarinet) Taekwondo (he's working on his red-black belt) Boy Scouts (currently, he's working on his camping, geology, Indian lore, and forestry merit badges) He also goes sailing, kayaking, swimming, and fishing every few Saturdays with his friend and just passed the boating exam and received our state's boating license. He also is learning programming through Khan Academy: JavaScript.
  4. My Pals Are Here offers an international edition for 5th and 6th grades. The only consumable part is the workbook, but you could circumvent this by having your student use a notebook. These books are sold at Christianbook.com and Rainbow Resource.

  6. What about taking Attuneup's Grammar Cracker during the summer, then jumping into Time Capsule in the fall? You could be doing Essay Practitioner next. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. That's just awful. And rude :( I am teaching my kids Spanish, and we live close to an area with a lot of Spanish speakers. People in our area are generally supportive and encourage learning two languages, and Spanish speakers think it's awesome. I speak Spanish. Learned starting in 5th grade, and TV was all in Spanish. Ds10 is finishing fifth now and we are both starting Latin in the fall. I'm also learning Italian as an aside. Thanks so much for this thread. I needed the kick in the pants.
  10. We're working on Book 1 in 5th and will finish in 6th. Ds10 is also using Duolingo and Rosetta Stone. I need to practice conversational Spanish more with him. If your dc has never had Spanish, it's a good program to work on a foreign language, even in high school. You can always add more time spent on for the high school years. Here we do 30 min, you can spend 1 hour on Spanish a day.
  11. Bumping as I'm thinking about the future this morning.

  14. Really? I was unaware. I'm curious too. I'm surprised, as one of the overarching arguments for continuing to get Africans was that white people or Native Americans were not "strong enough of constitution" to do the hard work on plantations. I think Bartolomeo De Las Casas implied something to this effect and someone had the bright idea to use Africans as slaves for the New World (insert sarcasm here).
