  1. Thank you! I am just about to start creating a course and this is perfect! I am using the hmh world geography text as a spine. I actually came here for modern literature ideas and found this! Here are some books that I was going to use. Journey to the Center of the Earth -- to start. Longitude: The Story of a Lone Genius Who Solved the Greatest Scientific Problem of His Time Full Tilt: Ireland to India with a Bicycle by Dervia Murphy I was thinking of ending with something fun like -- The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
  2. Thanks for all the Info. This is one area of sciene that I did not think about. My dd has gone through all of the Apologia books and we were trying to figure something out for next year. It will be her senior year. I think that this will fit the bill quite nicely along with marine biology. Lynda
  3. Just out of curiosity what were you considering using for a high school level enviormental science? That sounds like an intresting course that my dd would like. Lynda
  4. I have read through the WRTR and just always feel like I am missing something. I really just want the spelling portions of Phonics Road. lynda
  5. Another plug for Art Reed! We have used his video's from Alg 2 and now advanced math. Each video is about 10 minutes. Really not that long. He uses problems that are not in the math book, love that! He also gives the kids tips sometimes on how to do things better. I remember one lesson he said you will not learn this until lesson X but it is just easier to do it all now and taught the kids. After my dd did the lesson she agreed. We have also emailed him on several occasions. He called my dd and spoke with her on the phone one time when she was not understanding something! Lynda
  6. YEA!!! We got ours in the mail today! Now to figure out what this all means! Lynda
  7. I am very impatiently waiting for ours to come still!! Lynda:lol:
  8. This is exactly what I did. I explained that we homeschooled. She then went to tell me that we would just have to wait until we get it in the mail then. That I should place my dd in a school in order to get her results faster. Then I was not so nice at that point........ so I am sure that affected my outcome but it was not going anywhere at that point. I agree!!! I don't know why in such a digital age that we have to wait for snail mail to access these things. When I signed up my dd on the college board website. It states that her scores were in and knew exactly who she was, but that she needed the access code to obtain them now or wait until Jan 15. I don't get it if you know and verified who we are just give them to us. Lynda
  9. Just called again and NO go. They will not give you the code over the phone. They say that no one can get it at all over the phone and that one needs to wait until the tests are mailed out or talk with the students guidance counselor. Those that are able to get the access code by phone can you post the number that you are calling because maybe that makes a difference. Lynda
  10. I just called and they would not give me her access code. I was told they did not have access to it. And the lady was very rude at that. I was told that they are in the process of mailing the scores that that we may not even get them until the beginning of Jan. :( Lynda
  11. have you looked into celiacs disease or a wheat/gluten allergy. Your symptoms sound similar to what I was experiencing a year ago. I went on a strict allergy elimination diet, and found several food allergies. I cut out the offending foods and have been great ever since. No more reflux issues etc. Your more than welcome to PM for more information. :grouphug: Lynda
  12. I am fine without the tests. I was more asking because the words are so easy for my dd. I was thinking a test would maybe place her higher. I know that she is learning. We are going through a step in a day or two. We are in level 3 at the moment. Just thinking of ways to make it harder or more challenging for her. :glare::glare: Lynda
