19 Good
  1. Thank you, everyone! I'm going to order a catalog and start planning!!
  2. Anyone use this for k? Likes, dislikes? Thank you!
  3. Never used this before and know very little about it? If you have thoughts, will you please share? Thank you!
  4. To Kill A Mocking Bird The Hobbit The Cay Mere Christianity The Westing Game ...just a few ideas!
  5. Me too. I need to think on this and do a little research on transcripts. Seems perfectly acceptable to me.
  6. Oh, this is good to know. I am definitely adding easy grammar 9th, essay writing, and lit analysis.
  7. Yes, this is what i plan on doing as well. I'm pretty excited about it. I am adding pretty much exactly what you are doing. I think it will be perfect. I agree. I actually own a few of them! I'm going to include the studies my son does on his own and with his youth group. I think that in addition to what they offer will be enough for a credit.
  8. Why shouldn't I mark Piano as 1/2 credit elective? To me, it's the perfect elective. He's learned so much during his 7yrs of piano lessons.
  9. This is great and creative. I'm looking into HomeScholar for advice on names and such for transcripts. I definitely need help with that. I love your ideas! Yes, we are required to have PE credit as well. I'm fortunate to have a great class here in my area. I might add that for next year. It's a good idea! Thanks for mentioning that. I think 9th is a better year to do that while academics are still less demanding.
  10. Starting to click with me! My cleaned up version is: English- American Lit, Essay writing through Notgrass, Vocabulary through assigned reading, Easy Grammar for review. Math MUS Alg. 1 History- Notgrass American History Religion- Bible Studies Science- Apologia Biology Foreign Language- Rosetta Stone German Logic/Piano- Electives = 7 credits Freshman year I feel better about this and appreciate the insight. If anyone else has suggestions, pls let me know!
  11. Regentrude, you make a good point. I appreciate the ease of just keeping good records and not focussing so much on the transcript part yet. Vocabulary and spelling...hmmm... well, he is not the best speller. I think it would hurt for him to practice in the area without being bogged down with an extensive program. Vocabulary, you are right. I think I will just work through his assigned reading for the literature portion and create my own 'thing' for him. I like that idea!
  12. Oh, that's a good point! And, you are right about the piano. I should make that a half credit and add Logic as the other half. Piano 1/2 credit Logic 1/2 credit ~ Thinking toolbox, Fallacy Detective Ok, question about the literature. When it comes time to adding up the credits and you need to have some additional elective courses, why would it be a bad thing to add Amercian Literature? I realize how it might look, but at some point, don't you need the literature electives to add to your credits?
  13. I should also add: Bible- 1 credit I'm guessing this could/should be an elective? I know it might not look academically as 'strong' on a transcript, but shouldn't I include it if he is doing the work?
  14. This is as far as I've gotten in my limited research and planning, but I'm feeling pretty good and would like to know what others think. English: 1credit Easy Grammar 9th grade Writing- papers assigned in Notgrass Vocabulary and Spelling- undecided, recommendations? Literature: 1 credit Notgrass assigned reading books Math- 1 credit MUS Algebra 1 History- 1 credit Notgrass History- American History Foreign Language- 1 credit Rosetta Stone German Music- 1 credit Piano Lessons Science- 1 credit Apology Biology Does this look correct? Did I forget anything? Is it ok that separated the Literature from the English as a separate credit? I thought about making that one credit but it truly seemed like so much work for just one credit. I appreciate your thoughts. Thanks!
