  1. I love Ivy kids for 4-5 maybe even 6 yer olds. It has been the one kit I’ve felt is worth the money. The books and activities are fun and easy to pull out for a child who wants to do hand son things. The activities can get repetitive though after awhile. We subbed for two years for a few kids and have several painted banks and other items around the house 😂. The games are all pretty much the same just a different theme. Still my 5 yo has enjoyed them a second year. We stopped and just reuse the activities when we want something easy to do.
  2. Following since I was wondering the same thing
  3. Don’t tell that to my five year old! He’s always hugging and snuggling our chickens. That kids loves his ladies. 😂
  4. We use ours often. We just got it this Christmas and the entire family loves making their own creations. We do dairy free and sugar free so it has saved a ton! Although I’ve fallen in love with avocado ice cream and haven’t figured that one out yet! And that one is $$$$ to buy!
  5. I’m guessing because the 2020 prices aren’t out yet. You can call 499 days in advance to get a reservation but will pay the difference in cost when the prices come out. I also don’t believe you can get 2020 tickets yet but may be wrong about that The 2020 prices will be out soon though. Maybe mid June I heard? If staying on property is work with a travel agent. They are free for you and can help so much!
  6. I looked at American Story and while I loved the idea of it, I didn't like that there were 3 books to get through AH. I wanted to do it in one condensed year at that age group. IF you like using literature, have you looked at Beautiful Feet's American History?
  7. I’m right there with you that FIAR is so much fun! But time is at a minimal with having many older ones. So lik PP mentioned we have used IVY KIDS! They have been a lifesaver for the fun and I add in library books as I want to gain more on the subject. Also, look into Beautiful Feet. The around the world appears to be similar to FIAR and we will be using that next year! Lots of books with lessons based on them.
  8. This will be my fourth little guy to do K. I'm still thinking it through Math- Either MUS Alpha or Math for a Living Education Reading/Writing/Spelling- IEW PAL continuing from where he currently is History/Geography- Around the World with Picture Books, lots on hands on things Literature- Sonlight P4/5 and A as we want since we have all the book Handwriting- HWOT K and 1 I'll probably grab some Ivy Kids boxes once our current ones are done and possibly another kit club for fun
  9. I am looking for a class online for teaching my 5th grader writing. When I googled it, not much came up, so I thought I'd see the advice of other homeschoolers here.
  10. After many years of wanting to I finally started up a homeschooling blog. I have already posting some topics I’m interested writing about, but I’m curious what readers like to read. Or what other than freebies brings them to a blog in general.
  11. I don’t think there is anything specific. It will all depend upon the child. Mine with adhd can’t handle mm and we use mus with him since the pages are clean and not cluttered. The amount of problems have been good for him. BUT it may also be a frustrating for an adhd kid being that it’s mastery. It also depends if the child is interested in math and has that as an strength. If the child enjoys reading a nice gentle approach would be masterbooks math for a living education- this does have Christian content. Ive been tempted to switch mine to TT because of the video lessons which he enjoys but another but for mine math is a weakness and he would struggle without the one on one help
  12. Bummer. I was never crazy about Gymboree since it was too themed for me and more than I wanted to spend on messy little boys. But crazy 8 has been a favorite.
  13. We have had the same struggle with Science. I'm guessing it doesn't help in my case that I don't enjoy teaching it. But since we all love literature we do a lot of reading to make up for the lack of science instruction in these years.
  14. We loved doing the Hidden Mickeys. It was a fun way to keep busy. The book was inexpensive and a highlight of the trip for my kids.
  15. We are thinking of getting an au pair for a year. Has anyone had experience with having one? Agencies to go through (or not)?
