  1. Thank you so much for your kind and generous response Lori! I will definitely look into the programs you mentioned! :)
  2. Hi, My daughter just hates science...and math. She wants to be a writer and is fantastic at it. She reads everything she can get her hands on (well, except if it's math or science related maybe). I have never loved DOING science, but I do love reading about science topics. I want my kids to be able to enjoy learning about science, even if they hate having to do it. I'm hoping some people can give me some insight into the High School Biology/Physical Science/Chemistry in the Home programs for high school level. Are they really engaging? Are they enjoyable for the non-science-lovi

Or will it just fee

  5. Has anyone ever seen or used this Cross-Wired Science curriculum? It's relatively new, I think it came out in 2014. It looks like an AMAZING Christian program that teaches science using lots of hands on experiments, videos, and other stuff. But I can't find any reviews on it. I am very interested in it, but after having bought Super Charged Science and been completely disappointed and overwhelmed with it, I don't want to spend a bunch of money on a program that I can't hear more about from people who have used it. Thanks!
  6. Did you ever try this out? I just discovered it the other day and can't find any reviews....but I'm highly interested....?
  7. OK Thanks! That's GREAT to know! My daughter is actually in 8th grade, LOVES writing - wants to be a writer, and we do own it LOL :) Just never seem to have time to fit this one into everything else I hope to have them do before high school. But we will definitely fit it in, and will not condense it then. Thanks!
  8. Anyone who has used the Cover Story middle school writing curriculum... Do you think it would be possible to do a focused 3 month block and complete the program? If we do the lessons every day? Other than the writing in the journal, is there anything else that happens outside of each daily lesson? Do lessons often spill over into multiple days? Thanks!
  9. I bought the Diamond program from Super Charged Science back in the fall, and we still haven't used any of it. I have NO IDEA how to get started?! I have 3 kids, ages 8, 9, and 12. We are doing other sciences right now, so I haven't worried about getting to it too much yet...but every time I try to figure out how to dive in, I get overwhelmed and give up. We are talking a lot about life science right now, but of course it's freezing outside and a lot of the life science stuff from Super Charged involves microscopes and plant/animal cells and such. I just need advice from someone who's

  11. Thanks everyone!!! I think I have decided to stick with Notgrass as our spine, and add extra literature for an american lit class. She is just a voracious reader and she does seem to enjoy the Notgrass readings. At least in the middle school world history books. I wish she were the kind of student that would run with History Revealed projects, but again, I think reading and writing are just her thing and she will be happiest with that. I did order the Socratic Discussions for History DVDs from Classical Historian and one Take a Stand book just to see if I could (or would want to) pull so
  12. I'm debating using Notgrass but adding about a dozen or so more literature books, historical fiction, to beef it up a bit. Do you think that would be good? As much as I am enticed for History Revealed, I just don't see her doing as much with it as I would hope she would...so I would probably feel like she wasn't doing good enough work. We would be using it for 9th grade (US History), and 10th for World...
