  1. Really enjoying ALL this year. After this week, we will be ready for more weeks than are currently available. I'm wondering how/when we would go about obtaining more of the lessons. Thanks for any assistance.
  2. You stole 221 cookies!


    Rules of the game: if you find this (anyone except the cookie thief themselves) then post here to say "I caught the cookie thief! BUT... someone else took 222 cookies from the cookie jar!" That way we know this player has been caught and we'll look on another profile. Next, copy this entire post and paste it onto someone else's profile (player must have more than 100 posts and must have been active in the last month.) Lastly, change the numbers so each increase by one. It will be easier to track that way. Please post your findings in the thread entitled SOMEONE STOLE A COOKIE! Forum Game. Have Fun!

  3. I could not agree more. We started with CW-Aesop in 3rd (we are now in CW-Aesop B) and the difference in her writing from before and after is impressive. While the authors' overview of the progym can be dense, the explanations of how to implement the program are not and the workbooks provide even more guidance. Once you get going it becomes very easy to teach. And a good bit of grammar gets learned in the process. I've been very happy with it.
  4. Seriously? Are we trying to get into the Guinness Book of World Records for being the first message board ever to be free of snark? Because I think that's a great idea. No. Really.
  5. The question is legitimate because in the past we've been admonished to "go back to discussing home school" or words to that effect.
  6. I actually think some people just can't stand to admit that everyone isn't perfectly equal. So they take the word 'educated' and change the meaning so that everyone can wear it without doing all that exhausting reading. You know, someday I mean to be truly educated and I don't really want to be called educated until I've achieved it honestly. I'm okay with being things like "good with ______" or "knowledgeable about ______" until then.
  7. If one does not have some knowledge of Poe then one is not well educated. One may be a very nice person who likes to think of themselves as educated but they're not educated. Just nice. Why isn't just nice good enough? I'm enjoying people saying, on the one hand, that being industrious is just as good as being educated and then absolutely bristling when someone is called uneducated. The argument could be that being educated is not as important or is less important than other achievements or virtues but instead it became an argument that education has no definition and we are all educated in our own way. It just illustrates how much value is really placed on being educated. Some will acquire it and others will just assume the mantel but the difference will always be obvious.
