  1. Thanks everyone for all your suggestions. I finally remembered what they were. They are from Flyleaf Publising Books to Remember. http://flyleafpublishing.com/products.html I do have the first level of AAR, and they are beautiful as well, and a lot less expensive!
  2. I remember a few years ago someone mentioning some early/beginning readers that were really beautiful. They were rather expensive as well. I can't for the life of me remember what they were called or the name of the company. Can you all post some links if you have any idea what I may be talking about! ;)
  3. Thank you sooo much! This is very helpful. I would feel the same as you if someone asked me for books covering US history/geography in only 2 weeks. Unfortunately that is the only amount of time we have if we want to cover the whole world in one year. Maybe my dd's interest will be peaked and she'll want to study Canada in her free time!
  4. Is it possible to use a tech course of study for a high school science credit? I would love to do this for my kids as I believe it would open many doors for them however I'm having trouble finding an actual homeschool curriculum. Any suggestions?
  5. Is there a biology course that doesn't have labs? If so, can this count as a high school credit?
  6. My dd15 is study geography this year and we are nearing the chapter on Canada. I am ashamed to say that I don't know much about our neighbor to the north. Please forgive my ignorance. I am looking for some books to enhance our study. We need books that have more of a broad sweep of culture, history, etc. We will only be studying Canada for 2-3 weeks. She will be expected to read 30 minutes a day of outside sources. ETA: Although I am looking primarily for fact based books, I welcome suggestions for fiction set in Canada.
  7. We are doing a USA state study this year so I'm looking for literature based on state. Books can be picture or chapter books. I have a 2nd grader and a 6th grader doing the study. Our library has plenty of non-fiction books for each state. What I really want is non-fiction.
  8. DD15 wants to study Geography this year. I'm having a hard time coming up with resources that are secular. I'm leaning towards having her do most of the work, finding books, websites, etc. But I need help getting started. What would need to be included for her to earn a credit?
  9. I missed the session to as well as Julie Bogarts writing session that was on the 14th. Neither have shown up on my recordings page. I emailed them a couple of days ago but am still waiting on a response. I know they are swamped so it will probably be awhile. I was also hoping I would be able to watch the first sessions before the second, but this may not be possible.
  10. You are right, she does not like to make mistakes! She is very meticulous, so much so that sometimes I hate to correct her for fear she will feel bad! She is the first of my children that I really feel I am able to teach math conceptually. With my older kids I feared math too much and unfortunately, passed that fear unto them. I have learned from my mistakes and am trying a more exploration approach with her. My fear still creeps up from time to time and I've learned to back off when that happens. A lot of the fear I'm having now is because she will be going to public school this year s
  11. I am using RS level B with my 7 year old daughter. She has been doing very well with it but we have come to a halt on Lesson 53 which begins using the base-10 picture cards to teach place value up to the thousands place. We've been on this lesson for about 3 days because I don't believe she is fully understanding the concept. I don't know if we should just move on or stay here awhile until she gets it. My main concern in that the next lesson deals with trading with base-10 cards and then adding with base-10 cards. I think either 2 things can happen if we move on. She will become more con
