  1. We moved from Ontario (right on the NY border) to the Yukon, next to Alaska. They follow BC education guidelines here. I've tried looking into this more locally and asking on local groups but there doesn't seem to be much discussion about it or precedence with going the non-online class route. We do know someone who was homeschooled herself and she's said that she went for the GED without issue as far as I know. DS is planning to get his carpentry certificate, becoming an apprentice, and going into business for himself or with his younger brothers who are also (currently) planning to go i
  2. GED's are relatively normal for homeschoolers, right? I'm having a slight panic that I'm messing up my son's future by having him on a GED path. I don't think there were any other options when we started homeschooling, but we've moved provinces and things are done differently here. He's just started grade 9. but it's expected that homeschool students completely switch to live online classes provided by provincially-accredited teachers for grades 10-12, which will earn them a regular high school diploma. These are provided by the homeschool school board (sort of). I hate the thought of it

  5. Still figuring it out My second kiddo, generally I have him work with #3 who is 13 months younger. So we'll do sort of a grade 6/7 for them.

  6. Thank you for your insight! I think these might just do the trick. 🙂
  7. These sound interesting. Would you know what the difference is between the different state editions? I'm seeing Texas, Indiana, and Ohio. I'm sure it wouldn't matter much anyway given that we're in Canada. Thank you!
  8. Thank you for the suggestions. The Real Science 4 Kids looks like it might work for us, but I'll keep looking.
  9. I'm planning next year and wondering if anyone has recommendations for something that would cover all 4 areas of science in one year. We've really dropped the ball on science over the years and I'd like to at least get a good foundation / introduction to each of the areas we were supposed to have covered in depth in the past. I'm looking for secular middle school resources.
  10. It's hard to believe my oldest is starting high school. This is a definite work in progress! DS will be 14 in May and ... well, he could do with a little more effort toward school. He's a bright kid, but has yet to find his niche. I found out that grades 10, 11, and 12 must be done through online classes through our territorial homeschool education board... So there go all of my great plans I'd accumulated throughout the years. This year will now be a 'make-sure-kid's-caught-up-everywhere' year... hoping to still make it fun since it's his last year for much choice. Math - He's
  11. This is my first time planning grade 8. Math - no idea. He's finishing Math Mammoth so I need to figure out what comes next. Teaching Textbooks Pre-Algebra? We'll do the placement test.

Writing - Writing Strands 4 & 5? or Brave Writer? WWS1? W&R? Handwriting - Canadian Handwriting finish F & G Typing - Typesy? Epistory? Extras - Figurat
  12. I'm constantly debating holding this kid back a grade. He's generally been doing the same as his younger brother (1 year younger) and aside from math I think it'll stay that way.
