  2. Easy Biology Lab: All in one highschool DOT com I like their biology lab. Easy to do at home, and I skip whatever anti-evolutionary parts I choose. The site has tons of other subjects but I've never looked at them.
  3. Hello, You asked about history and science for middle and high school. My son took several of Mrs. Stanley's middle school history classes last year (pre-recorded). Very engaging and not too hard. My son needs school work that is "just enough" and not too hard, or he shuts down. I learned a lot watching her classes. Occasionally there were glitches in the pre-recorded class but not too many. I have watched bits of the high school level history classes. Some teachers are more engaging than others. We'll be watching the most fun ones. I've only watched bits of the biology course. For the one I watched, it seemed that the teacher just read her slides, and went very quickly. My son is taking biology this year, and I'll probably use her slides and do the explaining myself (bio major, but I'll need to read ahead.... if I get motivated, that is.) I've read many people's reviews of the chemistry class, saying it is awesome (and can be difficult). I like the variety of science courses offered. My son has taken two of the writing courses with Mrs. Brown. I liked them and thought they were thorough and not too difficult (average level, not honors) and that's what my son needs. I love the pre-recorded option because I can assign whatever I think my son ought to do for assignments and tests rather than something he would fail at. I like being able to drop a class and do something else with no extra cost. I like that you can cancel and rejoin at any time (like summers or a month off for Christmas, if you do that). I like that he can re-watch a portion several times and pause it to take notes from the screen. I like that it's being taught by someone other than me, and I'm not reading his text books aloud. I like that the basic structure of the notes are on the screen to make note-taking easier. Since you can try one week for only one dollar, and the pre-recorded classes are $30 per month, you might want to see things for yourself. We'll be using it for four subjects this upcoming year. I hope this helps.

  6. We will be using the Chakerian USB thing for geometry, which sells for $79.99, and using Kolbe Academy's plans (my son in enrolled). Do we need to buy the text book as well? My son will be learning mostly from the computer (I assume).
  7. Something else for people to try: I posted earlier about Epsom salt, but that stopped working for me. So after trying several other things, I thought I'd try cheap vitamin E capsules. Surely something so easy and cheap couldn't work. But it is working so far! For four months I've been piercing a capsule with a safety pin and squeezing it onto the affected areas. I try to keep the toes oily all the time and to wear sandals around the house. I also wear moisture-wicking socks to bed and keep the feet uncovered by blankets. One big toe nail is one-third clear, the other is one-fourth clear.

  9. Just wanted to say that I just finished reading the library's copy of Scattered but Smart for Teens, all about executive functioning. You probably don't need to read it, however, because the advice given to you is very similar to what is in the book. Help, respectfully, as long as they need it, slowing drawing back how much you help.
  10. I prayed for your precious daughter this morning and will continue to do so. Have hope!
  11. Hello, My ninth grader has significantly slow processing speed per a Woodcock-Johnson test. I approached the school system to see if he could get tested by an educational psychologist for free (in order to get a diagnosis so he could get extended time on ACT / SAT). They declined because they saw that he was doing well academically with the accommodations I have been providing him. He took the ACT as an 8th grader and scored a 20. Our next step will be to see an educational psychologist. The woman who tested my son suggested it, and said our choices were either a professional or a grad student (supervised) at a state university. I read that the College Board and ACT like to see a list of accommodations. How should I go about this? Should I go back to the beginning of 8th grade or 9th grade and list by subject? how detailed should these be? Or can I only start right now to list accommodations? I read that they want at least four months' worth listed. Does anyone have an example to share? For my son, the accommodations include extra time, helping him to study for tests, using video courses, taking breaks, reading aloud to him, helping him figure out what to write down as notes, and working out each math problem with him. I'd appreciate any advice you have. Jamberry
  12. Hello, The woman who did the Woodcock-Johnson test for my ninth grader last August said that he should have an educational psychologist diagnose him around October of his tenth grade year so that the time frame is correct for the ACT/SAT people to grant him an extended time accommodation. Have any of you heard that? Is the time frame correct? She's assuming he'd be taking the test in spring of junior year and fall of senior year. Below is the link to his story. http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/topic/623519-slow-in-decision-making-and-processing-skills-woodcock-johnson-test/ He has been so stressed with school lately and it shows itself in serious digestive troubles. I am scaling back how much work I expect of him in an effort to make him a happy boy again. I thought I had scaled back, but it wasn't enough and I was showing my disappointment and declaring, "We are so far behind!" too much. Time for a serious attitude adjustment for me (and I thought I was doing better). Jamberry77
  13. one more idea: I realized that apple pie lasts at home out on the counter for a few days at least, so I baked an apple pie, packed one third of it into an empty plastic food container with a locking lid, and nestled it into the box with the other goodies. He received it three days later (priority Mail) and kept it in the mini fridge for three weeks before eating it (surprisingly!). He said it tasted great! I guess the sugar content helps it last.
  14. So sorry to hear that your son is sick. Somewhere on the internet (possible www.earthclinic.com) I read that coconut oil helps persons recover significantly faster. Either he could spread it on bread or mix it in instant oatmeal or put it in a cup of hot chocolate. Many use coconut oil for all sorts of physical problems -- antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, etc. I pray that he has a mild case of it.
