  1. So fun to see that the cinnamon roll recipe lives on! Merry Christmas everyone!
  2. My plan is AG too if they don't release it before fall. I really, really want to see a TOC.
  3. The GS class will be doing discussions and labs in class. The reading, OYO, tests etc. will all be done at home. I think he would benefit from the class and I know the teacher well and she will do an excellent job. I can see either class working for him at this point. I just keep wavering on which would be better and need to decide soon.
  4. Thank you! I wondered why it was so inexpensive. Makes sense now.
  5. Thank you! We will do the reading and questions at home too. Class time will be discussions and experiments. He does have a few friends who will be in the class so I am sure it will be fine. I can beef up things at home if needed.
  6. I want to teach my dyslexic 12 year old to type and have looked at both Touch Type Read and Spell and Keyboarding Without Tears. Both programs look nice and look like they'd get the job done. Any recommendations for either program?
  7. There will be mixed ages in the class but most seem one to two years younger. It is a concern for me that the teacher will need to bring the discussion down for the younger kids. I really think just doing it at home would be a good fit but his sister is signed up for a different class at the same time and the only options for him are these classes or study hall, which he would hate. I couldn't blame him there.
  8. I have a 12 year old with dyslexia who is entering 7th this fall. I typically put my kids in General Science at this point but I don't think he is quite ready for that. I am considering Exploring Creation with Chemistry and Physics for him instead. My concern is that the course would be too young for him. Our co-op is offering both courses and I just don't know which would be a better fit. Thoughts?
  9. About how long each day does the above take?
  10. I am considering this for the upcoming school year. Anyone use it and love it? Hate it? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks!
  11. I know this will vary for each student but I am trying to get a basic feel for how long each day's lesson would take. Thanks!
  12. I agree. I would really love to see a TOC. I am planning for fall and trying to decide on grammar.
  13. I am looking for a one year grammar review program for my son. He has done R&S, CLE and another program that I can't remember at the moment. It seems all the grammar studying he has done isn't spilling over into his writing. At this point I have narrowed my search to either Fix it or AG but I am open to other suggestions. I think we could get through AG easily in a year but I'm not sure how far we could get in Fix It. I know the first few books might go quicker but then we would need to slow down. Any suggestions or thoughts on these programs? Thanks!
  14. Thanks! I'm not sure what I want to use at this point. I have used IEW in the past and we didn't love it but I know it's recommended to use with Barton's.
  15. Sorry, this is another son. I have 7 of them :laugh:
  16. We are on the last lesson of book 4. We do use the support materials and he is doing well! I would not call him fluent as in he still reads slowly but we're working on it. Just not sure where to go next as far as writing and grammar. We have not done anything in addition to the Barton's.
  17. My upcoming 7th grader is dyslexic. We are using Barton's and he is finally getting it but not fluent by any means. I am considering WWE and FLL for him this coming year. I used these with a few of my older kids and we enjoyed them but it's been a while so I can't remember if it would be a good fit. Anyone else use these resources with your dyslexic kids? I could scribe for him and he uses google docs with voice to do writing now. Thoughts?
  18. Hiya! I don't get here often but its so good to you too! :-)
  19. He reads well and fluently. He still struggles with spelling though when he is doing written work. He did have a full neuro-psych eval when he was 12. His challenges were a lower than average IQ, slow processing and working memory issues. He was diagnosed with dyslexia and dysgraphia. He has come a long way since then and does fairly well in most of his subjects at this point. He loves to read history related books, go figure :001_smile:
  20. We're finished with Barton's and he reads fairly well but still struggles with spelling. I think he just can't remember the rules. I'd love to do a quick review of all of Barton but I don't think there is a simple way to do that. He's older and wants to just be done. Part of me thinks just allow spell check and be done with it too but I'd really like to spend this next year focusing on improving as much as we can in this area. Any suggestions?
  21. I don't get here enough. Life is just busy! Good to "see" you too! :-)
