  1. Its not really a website but an app I bought on my android tablet. I used it with my 5 yr old to learn to read spanish. Its called Cartilla Completa and its interactive but easy enough for young ones. Took us I think 3 months and she can read spanish. Obviously, theres some more complicated sounds that weren't taught but its a great start.
  2. It really sucks to get tickets and lose out on that money. But, for whatever reason, your car was parked incorrectly. Officers can't possibly go around knocking on doors for every infraction they come upon. The officer was doing his job. Part of officers jobs now a days is making sure to write tickets. As stated above this rule is there for the safety of other drivers on the road.
  3. Kids immersion is the channel for Calico Spanish. Great resource for kids to learn spanish. The sound quality is great and from the animations and songs my daughter understands the spanish without having to use the English words.
  4. If youre not opposed to lessons on the computer I have my daughter using petralingua.com for our spanish. It has songs that they sing, mini quizzes at the end and also printables that coincidence with the lessons. Theres a free trial of a lesson. Another thing ive used with my daughter is on my android tablet I had downloaded cartilla completa for learning to read spanish. It costs $15 and it is so thorough and my daughter now reads Spanish books. Im bilingual and having my kids learn Spanish is a big priority. I delayed teaching her because she was speech delayed.
  5. After finishing or curriculum that taught my 6 yr old dd to read Spanish I have been looking for the next thing. She can read well but she doesnt understand what she is reading. I've looked through a lot of site and found petralingua.com It has spanish, german, english, spanish, italian and a few others. My daughter loves the characters and the mini quizzes at the end of the lessons. I have a code for signing up and received a 6 month subscription for $15. I figured its worth a try. The code worked for me today its PetraLingua_lucky Hope this helps someone.
  6. I get multiple email as well but for some reason this went on the Promotions folder in Gmail instead of primary.
  7. The Paleo Approach has a lot of auto immune related information. The author herself follows an auto immune type diet. Her Facebook page has great tips. It starts with Food also has great information on this.
  8. My daughter went to prek for 2 1/2 years. As she got older I homeschooled her on the other 3 days she didn't attend class. She loved prek and made friends that we still keep in touch. She knew about homeschooling so it wasn't anything new to her. We plan on putting our now 19 month in a montessori prek when the time comes. Which will right around the time that my odd has more subjects to get through. Im not crafty so sending her off to enjoy things I cant even think of is great.
  9. I have not started looking at other alternatives yet. Im finishing up a program thats teaching my dd to read in Spanish. Shes reading great and is just reading bilingual books so she can understand what she reads. Sonrisas might work for others it looks like a gentle program. The BIG thing is that the teacher has to have prior knowledge of Spanish. Its full immersion as the program would like users to speak 90% off the class in spanish or use hand motions. The program is written for class use but im sure some can modify for use at home.
  10. BucktownMom: I havent emailed her teacher but I will send an email soon. This saturday is the last for the winter session. Her teacher just hasnt been good at connecting with parents as shes rushing. I will see what she says of her progress in class. If I based it off the homework I say it was very easy. MBM: Wow thanks for all those great links! I was hoping science would be better because thats her main interest.
  11. I believe she was in the k-1 class. I mainly put her in because she loves going to classes and I figured she'd be with kids that are more or less working at her level. Her teacher does teach in a gifted school so experience is there. I was thinking of signing her up for a science class. Id just hate to pay and find out that they are working on things that either we have covered or are covering.
  12. Forgive me if this is in wrong forum but I figured it is an accelarated program. Is anyone familiar with this program? My daughter is currently taking a math class in this program. My daughter loves the class but many of the topics covered we have already learned. Its time for spring sign up and im wondering if for the fee im better off buying things and doing at home. There are different subject areas that she has qualified for as well. Shes considered a Kindergartner but in math she's between 1-2 grade and reading/spelling is along 3-4 grade.Am I missing future opportunities that the program at Northwestern offers?
  13. Just saw this today at the library. I knew I shouldve borrowed it and just didn't make my way back to the shelf.
  14. We started using lltl level 2. Does anyone have suggestion what to do when the books is so good kid wants to keep on reading? My dd loves the wizard of oz and she wants to keep reading. How do I work this out in the lessons?
  15. I have contacted them but havent heard back from them. Yes, it says on the website 30 days. Its my 1st time returning something I wanted to know how smooth the transaction goes. Thanks
