    Very nice. Math 8/7 (2nd or 3rd edition) taught by Art Reed. Bought new by me. Used by my child only. 11 disks.


  6. I used SOTW with the Companion when they were younger (late elementary/early middle school). Just the Companion when they were older (sometimes added Mystery of History). I never used the literature suggestions - separate English curriculum. We are finishing our 4th year of Biblioplan. Next year, for 10th grade we are doing Read with the Best & Write with the Best with American History - adding The History of US by Joy Hakum. We could actually use it again, but we've done it for 4 years and need a change. I think it is excellent and would recommend it to anyone. Oh, and we also used the Maps and Cool History Questions!! The last 2 years we added the Europe study and Africa study from BP too :) SaveSave
  7. We've used all 4 years of Biblioplan. I bought Mystery of History to go along with BP, but as the year rolled along, we just used BP. I did use SOTW with BP when my kids were a little younger.
  8. Saxon Algebra 1, Saxon Algebra 2, and the first 60 lessons of Saxon Advanced Math = 1 credit Algebra 1 1 credit Algebra 2 1 credit Geometry with Advanced Algebra My daughter started and completed Saxon Algebra 1 in 8th grade. We reviewed the last half of Algebra 1 (lessons 60+) the first part of 9th grade because I felt that she didn't grasp it well enough. We are in Algebra 2 right now. We are taking 2 days for each lesson. We go over the lesson the first day and she does the even problems. We go over the lesson again the next day and she does the odd problems. So, yes, we are doing Algebra 1 & 2 in 3 years.
  9. Yes, it does seem like there is an "honors" team and I would like her to be on that team :) I saw some practice tests for Cogat, but they only went up to 6th grade.
  10. Thank you! I have no idea what test she's taking. That is a good idea about the bubbles! That is good to know about the gifted testing. There is a "Gifted Honors" English class in 8th grade that I'd like her to take, otherwise we wouldn't bother with the testing. I don't believe any of the other classes are limited to gifted students.
  11. My daughter is going back to public school for 8th grade in the fall and will be tested for the gifted program in a few weeks. Should I get some practice tests so that she knows what to expect? She will take a math section, reading section, and cognitive section. Any advice to what practice test I should get? Any other words of wisdom?
  12. Yes, one time per week is not ideal; hence, the added 45 minute conversation class at a different time. I wonder if she will add that again next year. I suspect she will. It is definitely rigorous enough for a high school credit. I had talked with her before enrolling my daughter in the class. I told her that I was searching for an online French 1 course that was an equivalent to a public high school French class. We had gotten so bogged down with Latin that it was taking time from other classes, and I told her that I did not want that to happen with French. What is great about Madame Barstow is that she teaches/taught high school French classes locally in her area so she is well aware of what is expected for a credit. I am pretty strict with credits, and I have no qualms about giving a high school credit for this course. Hope this helps. SaveSave SaveSave
  13. Not long. 30 minutes at most. Some assignments are longer than others. It's usually just a few exercises in the book and/or workbook. There are also a few fun projects throughout the year.
  14. My daughter is taking French 1 from AIM/Debra Bell academy this year. It meets one day per week, and she has 4-5 homework assignments due the following week. The teacher just recently added a 45 minute conversational class (not graded) for speaking practice. I enjoy Madame Barstow. She's very laid-back and the class has been a refreshing change from the outrageous workload of Latin. We will take French 2 in the fall.
  15. Algebra 2 - Saxon Chemistry - Conceptual Chemistry History - US History - not sure what curriculum English - Read With the Best? French 2 - AIM Academy Fine Arts - ? Elective - Coding
