  1. Praying for you and your family and friends!
  2. Sounds like rat-a-tat cat. But when we play the cards are just lined up in a horizontal fashion. But I guess one can play it in a t formation. Just an idea. It may not be what they were playing.
  3. NCIS I used to watch ncis. I remember really liking it. I haven't seen all of the shows (because I started having babies), but the ones with a woman named Ziva in it were pretty funny. It's mainly a detective series.
  4. I like this series. We are in the middle of the first book. My kids started last fall. We should be finished with it by now, but with the holidays and sicknesses, we just haven't. My kids are 10 and 9 years old. There's a bit of logic, so far. One may have to do a little bit more explaining to a 7 yo. I think it is doable.
  5. Hello, What makes AoPS different from other math programs? Why is it considered rigorous? For example, some say that beast academy is for advanced students. I am looking more specifically into algebra. Thanks in advance for any input.
  6. Hi there! I don't know the answers to all of your questions, but if he is already in grade 2 one can start first language lessons level 2. In the beginning of level 2 there is review from level 1. Level 1 covers nouns and verbs. You will receive many good advice here. There is a site called cathy duffy reviews. She gives good reviews for many programs. Hope this helps.
  7. I would keep them all home. Missing one day of church is not the end of the world. 😄
  8. People can learn God's word anywhere. Doesn't have to be at a building. I don't know anything about ccd or Catholicism. I haven't read the whole thread. I would first resolve why my child doesn't want to go anymore. I don't know why but I assumed op has more than one child. And I was thinking if my oldest all of a sudden declared that he didn't want to go to Sunday school and I allowed that, then his siblings may follow suit. I have seen this happen before. And my son's classmate doesn't study God's word at home. He told me so. I think sunday is a perfect time for my child to study God's word. When I am too. Just like I do copywork when my children do. Or free write when they do. If we didn't have a church to attend, then we would study God's word every sunday because this is when we take the Lord's supper and would be a convenient time to study God's word. This is what we believe. Hth
  9. My oldest is 10 1/2, so yeah my children have to go. I would find out why she doesn't want to go and straighten that out. Or u may have already said that in your op and I missed it. There is another child the same age as my son and he doesn't attend anymore. He doesn't want to. That hasn't effected my children. It may depend on how old your child is. Since my oldest is only 10 1/2 please take my advice with a grain of salt. I see it as in no different then teaching them reading, math and writing or making them eat healthy foods. It is essential that they believe. In fact probably the most important thing that we can teach them. I feel if I let my child decide that he or she can't go, then my child may feel that I don't think learning God's word is essential. Hth. Good luck.
  10. For a weekly literature class, I like using guides from the Novel-Ties. I am finishing up with the Detectives in Togas book. I like it. It has comprehension questions, discussion questions, and literary elements. along with other stuff i don't use. we are on a time constraint, so i believe we spent 3 or 4 classes on it? I divided the book up to about 70 pages each week.
  11. My kids and husband love this series.
