  1. WTMA also has a one semester creative writing class. And Athena’s has an 8-week WriteNOW Workshop.
  2. Have you checked out Kids Discover Online? They have a variety of units and subtopics for both science and history. You can sign up for a free one month trial to see if it would work for you.
  3. Emily at Build Your Library is replacing her Level 7 science with zoology this summer. She has a YouTube video linked here discussing it. https://buildyourlibrary.com/update-schedule-and-news/
  4. Echo Mountain by Lauren Wolk checks all your boxes. My DD11 loved it so much she listened to it twice. The Wild Robot series is also good on audio.
  5. Your 11-year old might like Invincible Microbe by Jim Murphy. I haven’t read it but it’s scheduled in one of the Build Your Library levels.
  6. If she enjoyed How to Train Your Dragon you should definitely listen to the Wizards of Once and its sequel by the same author. My kids listen to The Hero’s Guide series by Christopher Healy on repeat. Other favorites on audio have been Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke, the Peter Nimble and Sophie Quire books, and the Gregor the Overlander series.
  7. Turtle in Paradise The Rise and Fall of Mount Majestic Red: The True Story of Red Riding Hood
  8. I'm doing Adriene's Yoga Revolution: 31 days of yoga. revolution.yogawithadriene.com
  9. Yes, it's a companion novel. It has the same format with folktales within the story.
  10. We are reading Grace Lin's latest, When the Sea Turned to Silver. We recently finished The Door by the Staircase which we also enjoyed.
  11. Seconding this! We also love Deb's buttermilk chicken - http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2012/01/buttermilk-roast-chicken/ Requires some planning ahead, but super simple and delicious.
  12. The latest favorites for my 5 as 8-year old have been Finn Family Moomintroll and Dominic. They also loved Flora and Ulysses but we listened to the audio for that one.
  13. How about the Mr. Men and Little Miss series?
  14. We are using B without the teacher's guide. I think in TWTM she says it's not needed until book 4 or 5.
