    Not Telling
  1. It's not making them digital, but for the sake of space we got "cd binders" and eliminated all our cases.
  2. I think they are dropping acellus because of the price hike, but brought on other programs that are similar. We don't use any of the "main curriculum" resources so I don't pay much attention to what happens with them. We use some of the video resources and it was our reason for buying a membership. Getting the one site listed in this thread made it worth the price, everything else was a bonus. We then bought teacher accounts for another huge video and resource site at a fraction of the price of even buying at hsbc.
  3. So I don't know what programs we are allowed to say that we have and what ones we cant. Some of the things we have access to, we are not allowed to discuss with non charter members. I guess so people are joining the charter just to get this item or that crazy cheap... but isn't that why all of us are "there"? Anyway, here is a walk through video that is available on the nonmember group page, if you look you can see most of what is included. Somethings are added on for extra money. She did just change the pricing for the main membership, I don't understand all of that yet. Video link: https://m.facebook.com/groups/1182184321835910?view=permalink&id=1726851624035841
  4. From the Mixed up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler? It's not a locker or even a train station though. What about The Invention of Hugo Cabret? It's not very old though.
  5. We are part of Griffin Academy. It includes tons of resources plus many other options you can add. It was more affordable than KOLA. They have a fb group for prospective members https://m.facebook.com/groups/1182184321835910 Their site is griffinacademy.org
  6. I have dreamed of a flexible all in one secular LA forever. The new WS would fit it completely if it was secular. I looked it it as a flook last night and got all giddy until I really read the sample. Broke my heart, seriously.
  7. The newly updated Writing Strands in a secular version.
  8. For those who have their kids use Fires to listen, are they listening on the kids accounts? I just bought my kids a kindle book with whispersync and I can't get it to play the audio portion on the kids accounts and read I couldn't "share" audible books with the kids.
  9. I'm using it with 3rd, 6th, and 7th graders. We work together. I print everything and the have binders it goes in. I have a color printer with cheap generic ink. It takes us less than a half hour a day for sure. My older kids are enjoying the cut and paste stuff it's been a long time since school wasn't "hours" of handwriting, and the "3Dish" hands-on approach is making it all make sense for them.
  10. We are working through it also. First time in 12 years of homeschooling that my kids are actually "getting it" and they actually like doing grammar!
  11. Rebel is spot on. The immunizations are a grey area, even with hslda. I provide a copy of them to our district but all other medical/dental/vision information is not shared with them. I just make sure that I have a statement that its all completed and records are kept on file. Many file an exemption with the school because they don't want to share the records, but it's advised against because if we all are filing exemptions they will find a way to eliminate them.
  12. McRuffy Color Math is fabulous! Lots of hands on, lots of games built in, very solid but not overwhelming each day.
  13. There is a pretty large homeschool community in Luzerne County ;) I'm in Montour County, just down river or RT11 or I-80 from you. ;) There are FB groups for the area once you are settled more :)
  14. Welcome to PA. Our laws look scary but aren't hard to live with. What part of PA are you in? Maybe someone local can help you maneuver your local district. Most districts are cake but others are harder to deal with until you show them you stuff your stuff.
  15. We love it. One of my kids uses it ahead, one on level and the other has chosen to stick with McRuffy color math until the end of it. McRuffy is our favorite math before TT. My oldest used TT about 2 grades ahead. Use the placement tests.
