  3. 1. The Shining - Scary because of the sense of loneliness from being stuck in a huge, empty, haunted hotel with no where to go all winter while husband descends into the depths of madness. 2. It - Scary because I watched it way too young and of course the clown. 3. The Others - Scary because of the shocking scenes from the Book of the Dead. 4.

However, I feel like she would adore school, spending all day with other kids her age and really having a ch
  7. safariLive on youtube! It has inspired my dd6 to start an animal tracking journal, bird list, and she's learned so much about the wildlife from the trained guides, it's amazing. She's desperate for a trip to Kruger National Park. Someday :) We love that it is live and interactive.
  8. We are using both WWE2 and MCT Island for my dd6 and she likes the variety. I did discontinue FLL2 when starting MCT to avoid overkill. We have the ibook versions of the MCT curriculum and my daughter really enjoys the interactive exercises and listening to the poems and stories read aloud.
  9. My dd6 hates memorizing anything, so we tried memorizing tables by rote but when that failed, I came here and found multiple suggestions for Times Tales. She watched the video once and has her times tables down.
