  1. Thanks. It's hard to tell if that's the exact thing I saw or not, but it definitely looks similar!
  2. I have no idea what it’s called, and I’ve tried various Google searches, but a number of years ago, someone had posted on this board a picture of the way that their child organized their task/project list. It was on a whiteboard and had different columns, and somehow it narrowed down into two or three things that are being worked on at a time and then get moved to a different category. I think there might have had a distinction between some that were short term and some that were long-term, but I’m really not sure. I know this is super vague and won’t make sense to anyone, unless they al
  3. I don’t mind being nearby. And I can even look at it occasionally, as long as I don’t have to focus on it for too long. 😂 She has good knife skills in the kitchen, and I do trust her with knives of normal sharpness (she routinely chops up all manner of vegetables and fruit for me).
  4. I have a 9 yo kiddo who just got her first opportunity to dissect a deer heart with a friend. I've not seen her eyes shine like that in a very long time. It was love-at-first-slice... And she's desperate to do more. Problem #1: I'm very squeamish. There's NO way I'm going to be able to help her without vomiting, fainting, or both. Problem #2: She's dyslexic, so lots of print is overwhelming and stressful. I've searched some old threads on dissection, but I'm just not sure how many of them will be something a 4th/5th grader could do independently, or if she'll just have to wait until she's
  5. I would like to introduce my kids to a greater variety of cultural/ethnic foods. If you have ties with other cultures, would you share any authentic heritage recipes (not sure if this is the right word?) that you and your children love? If there's any cultural or historical significance you're able to share, I'd love it if you could include it as well! Bonus points if the amount of spiciness is adjustable for anyone here who may be a spice-wimp.
  6. My oldest did Dragonbox algebra 12+ while still not finished with Singapore 2. I feel like it was a great introduction to algebra, and gave a lot of intuition re: fractions as well, without requiring much of those older elementary concepts/arithmetic. Elements was also a super fun introduction to geometry for him! 🙂
  7. No problem. I took the video down though because I realized afterwards that it had some personal information on it. Let me know if you have any other questions. 🙂
  8. Ok, so one point of clarification, now that they've extended my trial: you can definitely assign an entire course now, view progress, scores/grades, reports, time spent on activities, etc. The only thing that I've found is still not ideal, and it's relatively minor, but I wrote them about it anyway, is that it doesn't automatically start you where you left off. It pulls up the sequence, and you have to scroll to where the check marks end (I'm attaching a video, and you can see that when I click "play," it automatically starts at the beginning of the course, so I just have to scroll over past a
  9. I got this email today. The main point for me is the last one - they've added the ability to just assign entire courses to a student! I asked for a new "free trial" to verify that everything works as hoped, but with this update released, I think we're a "Go" for uzinggo/Adaptive Curriculum again! Yea!! --------------------- The following updates have been released recently in Adaptive Curriculum: 1. The Catalog Tree now shows more granular Middle School courses instead of just Math and Science: Hopefully, this reorganization will make more sense f
  10. Further update: It seems that they are requesting a new update that adds entire courses to their "predefined" options. Maybe I was loud enough! LOL. Not sure when that would roll out, but hopefully soon!
  11. Well, bad news: They really did make it much more complicated for homeschool parents. I will include below the email and attachment I received back, but the short of it is that they have predefined UNITS, but you still have to assign all the units (10-15 per course, it seems, so we'd have to go through the suggested process close to 60 times for the four HS science courses) for each course to your student. Furthermore, each unit is required to be assigned with an actual due date, and it doesn't appear to me that the units come in order if you give them all the same deadline of next year someti
  12. Thank you both. I will definitely incorporate drawing. They do like it, but are perfectionists, so I appreciate the heads' up regarding that challenge. On a different page I'm on, someone just posted rave reviews of this for their dysgraphic son (it seemed she'd tried everything else, but OT was out of their reach). I'm tempted to give it a try since the reviews are fabulous and it's a lot simpler than driving four kids to OT that's 90 minutes away (each way) on a regular basis. lol. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Handwriting-Intervention-BUNDLE-4405410
  13. Yes, I can still se our subscription from last year as well. I loved how hands-off it was. I'm really hoping this home version has what I want! I have two younger kids who want to do it next year as well, and I'd never pay for them to do it (they're young and dyslexic), but if the home version gives me three student licenses for the same price I'd be paying for one anyway.... well, I may let the younger two do it as well (though without the requirement that they finish things). lol.
