  1. My oldest two kids are gifted with ADHD - my 11 year old (2nd kid) much more so. I homeschooled them for 4 years, which corresponded to 1st-4th grade for him. They've been at our tiny STEM-based parish private school for the past year and a half and my oldest is flourishing. My second is drowning for lack of executive functioning. He muddled through fifth grade with one teacher. Moving between teachers and having a locker has been a struggle. We're at the point where I take pics of his homework and email it to teachers because 80% of the time it doesn't make it back to school. He has a school-assigned Chromebook where he does about half his work, so at least that doesn't get lost and theoretically, we can go through his to-do list. If the rest of this year is misery for our whole family, I'm considering what other schooling options we have. I burned out on homeschooling both boys fulltime with 2 younger kids but I could see potentially coordinating schooling for him if he did a combination of online classes and local coops for extras. We have a gifted coop here with some possibilities, but it wouldn't cover everything. Has anyone with a similar kid tried this? Would he be forever distracted by other websites if I expected him to learn online? I feel like I am being his executive functioning and we're all exhausted by it. I can probably push the school for more accommodations but I don't have a strong sense of how to go about it. If I'm going to have to stand behind him every minute of his school day, I'll need to find something else. A couple hours a day, we could manage.

  4. We drove 500 miles each way to see totality. First road trip with 4 kids! As a bunch of science junkies, I'm glad we went and extra glad the weather in central Nebraska behaved relatively well for us. Driving back east across Nebraska was painful. I'm so glad we stayed overnight in Omaha before heading back to Minneapolis.
  5. Is Caesar's English II the classical education edition?

    I have the basic package to sell. The Book of Letters is missing most of the capital letter pages and the capital letter poster is worn out but everything else is pretty much untouched. I'll sell for $45ppd (to US addresses). It includes in excellent condition: Teacher's manual Zigzag Zebra book Lizard Lou book Letter Sounds CD Divider cards Letter sound cards Picture cards Lower case letter chart Progress chart Completion certificate Used (tape on corners, tearing around edges): Upper case letter chart Partially included: Book of letters (lower case and sounds complete, most upper case missing) I'd recommend buying the $17 Book of Letters new from All About Learning Press unless the child can skip capital letters. Total cost for the program would be about $65 shipped instead of around $90.

    New or used condition is fine so long as answers aren't written into the book.

  12. We won't be officially homeschool for another month, but my boys (ages 8 and 6) were riding bikes today, pretending to be electrons, zooming through amplifiers and trying to avoid transistors.
