  1. Interested in other homeschool graduates pathways into medicine My 12 yo wants to be a surgeon, has had her heart set on this since before she started school, so this isn't just a phase. I'm mapping out her education for the next few years and wanting to be sure we are covering everything we need to so she is prepared to go to University and be accepted in Medicine as soon as she is ready. What skills are good to be focusing on for this year and the rest of high school? What curriculum and levels should we be working through? Currently she is using: Saxon math 8/7 Explori

  3. How does a homeschool mother guide their child in improving their writing once they are in high school, especially when she isn't trained in writing/composition? My high school children are using Sonlights Literature 230, and LA core G, and neither program gives enough directions for the creative expression. I really need guidance in correcting and challenging them in their writing. I'm unsure of how to edit, correct and challenge their writing, other than the basic spelling, punctuation and "Well done".
  4. I don't feel competent grading my daughters writing pieces. She is in grade 10 and working through Sonlights 230. I read her piece and think, yeah that's great. I know there needs to be some changes but I'm unsure what, and I don't know how to challenge her. Is there any guidance or help to go with the Sonlight core? Do I need yet another curriculum? Or is there some sort of natural style writing such as narrations, or weekly creative writing time or I really don't know how to help her or challenge her. She loves reading and writing, but I feel so inadequate in challenging her or encouraging h
  5. I'm looking for books for teens that deal with hurt, betrayal, rejection, loneliness. Fiction and non-fiction. I have Honey for a Teens Heart, they have sections for romance, grief, and other topics but I'm specifically looking for those other topics.

  7. Thanks for the replies 🙂 Does it look like my plan will help with my quoted above?
  8. Just an update: I have withdrawn my 10 yr old from the DE school - see this post. I am incorporating morning basket and afternoon basket again 🙂 Everyone reads for 30 minutes daily. I'm still working on including the others.
  9. I have withdrawn my 10 year old from the DE school (only there for several weeks). (see previous post) Tears every day as she struggled with the English (Language Arts) workbooks provided. The sorts of questions asked of her I wouldn't expect until high school, but I understand it is conventional type schooling. I don't want to have her interest for books and reading (that is only just coming alive) destroyed because of this type of education. This girl is working and testing a grade level above in math and is very smart. She comprehends and communicates extremely well for her age. She really
  10. Oh thanks! Homeschool provider, so instead of me finding the curriculum and reporting to the state, the Distance education school cover all that. They choose and provide the curriculum and report to the government.
  11. We just joined a distance education school this year. My children are in grades 9, 7 and 5. While I love and prefer homeschooling and being able to plan and prepare all the lessons, picking and choosing the curriculum, circumstances beyond my control mean that we have had to go ahead with DE instead. It's been 5 weeks now and we are finally finding our grove. As they only cover the basics of education, I'd love to incorporate some other subjects myself now but need some advice. My 9th and 7th graders are taking about 4hrs to cover their work which includes: math, English, Science and Huma

  13. We school 4 terms each 10 weeks long and our school year begins at the end of January. For term 1 we were grieving the loss of a loved one so school pretty much didn't get done. I have been suffering an illness for the past few months which has put me to bed many days, so we have lost nearly all of term 2. While my girls have managed to get a little amount of independent work complete (I hadn't been marking or following up so not a lot has been done), hardly anything has been done that includes me: Maths, AAS, grammar, Latin, read alouds, history, science, foreign languages, fine arts, any Cha
  14. Thanks Merry ? Yes I love your workbox ideas! My children do work well independently and I'm very thankful for that. Some of the curriculum we have is parent intensive though, so I need to ensure that I have enough time in our week for me to sit with them for those subjects. Currently this is what needs my time: AAS x3 Singapore Math x2 Sonlight Read Aloud x3 Grammar, Latin and reading with youngest All other subjects they do independently. We do a morning basket style together which mainly covers Bible and history. I usually allow an hour for this i
