  1. I'm planning to use English from the Roots Up with my rising 9th grader. She's dyslexic, and I believe it will help her with spelling and vocabulary. My first question is, what do you DO with the information that you learn - I understand how to make the cards and the discussion that you have, but how do you test for mastery or practice with them or use them so that they "stick"? Also, can I fit it for a portion of a credit on the transcript, and where would you put it?
  2. Thank you so much for your reply! I did not know about that special education resource website - I think that government class will be just the ticket for DD. I have that on my list to research as well 🙂 She's fine with math and attention. I think those aspects of DIVE should be okay for her. I'll watch some samples and look into Timberdoodle. Thanks again!
  3. I'm trying to choose my 9th grader's science for the upcoming year. She's dyslexic, so she's a slower reader, and for that reason I'd really like a video element. I am considering DIVE science. We've used it for Saxon math and she's done well. I'm looking for opinions on how user friendly it is, if you'd suggest getting one of the recommended texts to read along with the material, basically anything good, bad, or ugly that you can tell me about using the program. *cross posted on high school board

  6. They (all about learning press) recommend spending 20 minutes per day. I would allow 30 minutes, but I would plan to go closer to 20 minutes unless you're on a roll and go 30.
  7. I need to get a planner for my 9th grader to use for her assignments and tasks this coming year. She's dyslexic and will be taking a pretty big leap in her independence this coming year, and I want to help her learn to manage her time and keep up with what she needs to do. What's your favorite student planner?
  8. I'm looking for a half credit government course appropriate for a 9th grader with some learning difficulty. She's dyslexic, so she can learn the information, but I'd like something that doesn't require copious amounts of reading. She's going to be making a leap in that regard as it is, so I'm looking for ways to get her what she needs without frustration. I considered Notgrass, but I don't want to to the literature aspect, and I cannot tell if that is a crucial part.
  9. homebychoice I've not been super regular - I lurk more than I post.
  10. Thank you so much!! I did it 🙂
  11. My board name just doesn't fit me anymore - it was a whim choice when I signed up years ago, but I'd rather just have my name. I dug around a few months ago and didn't see how I could do it.
  12. I'm sure this has been discussed before, but my search didn't come up with anything. . . I need an art curriculum (art appreciation??) for a half credit for my ninth grader this coming year. Anyone have a good recommendation?
  13. I need something to help my daughter improve her handwriting. She's dyslexic (some dysgraphia too I presume), but she's motivated to improve her penmanship. Are there any programs that are not juvenile in nature that she could work through to improve? She's 13, getting closer to 14 years old.
  14. Thanks for asking this question! Following for responses 🙂
  15. I'm trying to make our days have some out of the ordinary activity each day so that we don't feel so trapped in the house. Today we did one of the free art tutorials on facebook. It was a cute watercolor picture, and several kids hung around and painted a while after the first picture. Later we burned some limbs that we had collected around the yard previously. Of course we roasted marshmallows with that activity. Our local schools are still meeting, so I made a quick trip to the library to refresh our book basket. I got some read alouds for all of us, some nature books, and some how to draw books. I'm optimistic. . . Tomorrow we will probably take a nature walk - it's not something I've fit in very much, but want to, so I figured now would be a good time. I'm thankful that we live in the middle of no where on the edge of our farm, so we have plenty of room to roam while being socially distant 😉. I have a couple of books I hope to read and I'm crocheting a blanket. Fun thread!
