  1. Thank you so much for the info! I will check out those 2 organizations. Still in the maybe mode, but if the offer comes I want to have my answers already!
  2. So from CA (easy peasy to register as a private school), how much of a hassle is homeschooling in MA? Specifically the Revere,MA school district. From what I read, it seems some school districts are more difficult that others? I see I need notification to the school district & educational plan including a way to evaluate. How picky are they? Anyone use statement of progress instead of testing? Any help appreciated!
  3. Arthur on PBS might have some episodes that would work. https://arthur.fandom.com/wiki/List_of_morals
  4. Thanks @Where's Toto? Yeah, I am used to some lugging of stuff for weekly 4h project meetings. My main thing would be organizing it all at home when not in use. I will research more into what middle school classes might work. And maybe workshops that the charters would cover.
  5. Thanks both of you for all that info! The case here in CA with the charters is kind of unique in that I would have a curriculum laid out as the classes have to be a-g certified since these are basically public school and they want those classes certified. All the high school courses have to be a-g in the charters so even if I taught math, I would have to pick from the pre-approved curriculum to use basically. I mean I could come up with my own plan and submit it to get a-g approval, but why reinvent the wheel. Like chem I would probably use Holt Modern Chem and the resources that go with
  6. So It's been a while. I broke my right foot (the metatarsal) 2 months ago. It is still not healing. I may need surgery on it later this year. I really miss driving!! I was elected chair of the STEM Committee of our county 4-H. My oldest is a county Ambassador for 4-H. I am now a club leader for our local 4-H club. And the younger kids still love it. If you remember my previous posts , well things haven't changed much. My oldest is in therapy for depression,it's a lot. But I am still trying to work on a plan. And right now, I have an opportunity to maybe teach classes for homeschool
  7. I had a relative who did this almost 10 years in a row. I would wonder if they would qualify you? With a baby on the way? You might be gone (hospital, busy with newborn). Hosting actually made my relative really busy. There were events to take them to for the exchange students in addition to the regular high school activities. None of her students got driver's licence and public transport was not an option where we lived. Were you hoping the exchange student would help you around the house or with the kids? I found most of her students would clean up after themselves, but were too
  8. I have 2 5th graders, 1 7th grader and my 15yo son. I will also be adding my friend's 14 yo freshman and 7th grader. I had planned to use HOLT Modern Chem (2015) with the online component (from Rainbow Resource) and some labs for my 15yo before we discussed doing this coop style. Does MrQ Advanced Chem seem appropriate for High School level? I was going to use that for the 7th graders? and the Elementary Chem for my 5th graders? I know on the High School Board Mr Q Adv Chem is mentioned as High School level, but has anyone used it??? If not Mr Q Chem, any other suggestions? Or u
  9. My twins will be in 4th/5th grade next year. Long story, but basically they are old enough for 5th grade if in public school, but I delayed Kg due to speaking skills, etc. And now they are catching up. So, with that being said: Math : Beast Academy online with the books (hope to finish level 4) English: AAS, FLL3, WWE3, Just Write book 2, reading challenge with my lit list History: SOTW finish through book 2 (book 3 in 6th, book 4 in 7th, amer hist 8th) Minecraft Journals like these Cursive workbook Critical Thinking Company Vocab and Logic puzzles Meet
  10. I haven't been on in a while, but I check in occasionally, but I had to sign in to respond to this..... <><><><> How could you help? Invite them over/on outings. But understand if they have tight time restrictions (have to be home by x:00) or can't talk or text in the evenings, or don't have access to large amounts of $$ for activities or just listen without judging. <Hugs> to everyone else in this boat.
  11. Hi All, long time no "see" , been busy with 4-H and school, but I thought the hive would have good ideas for our county fundraiser. What would you like to see in a silent auction? DS15 is going to start asking local businesses for donations for auction items. So far ideas are: pizza places, grocery stores, oil change places, car wash, bakeries, spa, maybe pet stores??? I am guessing a lot of places will donate gift certificates. Any other suggestions?? Only no-no items would be lottery or gambling or alcohol related items. Thanks!!
  12. Yeah thank you! I archived it!! I had to turn on my laptop... but the kids were busy so no one was online and saw it....
  13. Ahhhh!!! Ok, so what to do.... ummm.... ok, i mean this isn't just stunt undies, this a whole stunt outfit 😋
