  1. I have not yet checked TWTM lists, this is the first time I have had to plan history in years (she went to school for a while and then did a co op), so it did not cross my mind look there. I did remember the forums though, LOL, I used to ask questions here all the time. I guess I might need to buy an updated copy of TWTM. My last copy is 2012... Thanks for the tip, that will make things much easier! I feel silly I hadn't thought of that.
  2. Hi, I have been researching how to use Human Odyssey Volume 3 for 8th grade. Several times people have mentioned there is a booklist or video list that matches up with Human Odyssey in a thread somewhere on the forums, but I cannot seem to locate it. Does anyone know where I could find some supplemental materials that match up with Human Odyssey Volume 3?
  3. Thanks! For those of us that have the VP cards, would a nice compromise be to get the modern times CC cards that have more nonwestern events, or are they extremely different throughout?
  4. Does anyone know if the lamination on the CC cards is thick enough, or is it the type of thing where they say it's laminated but you might want to laminate it again for durability?
  5. Sorry to come in a little late... So if you do Bravewriter and WWE what do you do for grammar? We've been using Rod and Staff and WWE, but I have been thinking of adding in a creative writing/Bravewriter type element. Is that just too many programs at once though? What about people who use MCT? My friend offered to let us borrow her MCT next year so I've been thinking about that, but it sounds like a lot of NEW stuff to take on at once... Plus I like Rod and Staff. It's like a little grammar worker bee.
  6. I do something similar with Math Mammoth. My daughter learns from the Math U See... She enjoys Mr. Demme's teaching much more than my own, so when she has trouble with a concept she handles it much better with Math U See. When she has a concept down in Math U See we get out the Math Mammoth workbooks for a week or two and really hammer it down. We got the whole Math Mammoth series a few years back from the Homeschool Buyers Co Op, so it all works out really well. MUS does wonders for her confidence and comprehension, and she says she loves math now. When we used Math Mammoth by itself she did anything she could to get out of math- now she does both programs and is much happier with the combination.
  7. Thank you so much! The test you linke looks much more like what my dd has been doing this year! Anxiety lowered :thumbup:
  8. Hey guys, Quick question... I got a Spectrum Test Practice Book (Grade 2) just to review the whole testing process with my daughter and lower her anxiety about it. However, now my anxiety is higher because it has multiplication and division in it. We haven't gotten to either of those yet and I didn't think we needed to for second grade. Is there really multiplication and division on the second grade Terra Nova? Does anyone know where I can find a list of skills they need to know for the testing? Thanks! Hailey
  9. Thanks guys, after looking at the Wrightslaw website I think the neuropsych would probably be better. I don't know if I could find a 2E experienced doctor out here. We moved to a less populated area so I don't think it's as easy to find that sort of thing :( Does anyone know of a website that might help me locate one? I wouldn't mind driving if it helped.
  10. If you wanted your child to be evaluated for a.d.d., capd, anxiety or learning disabilities (working memory issues), would you be more likely to take him or her to a neuropsychologist or a psy. d. practice group that does psychoeducational and psychological testing? Also, keep in mind the child in question is very bright and good at masking symptoms. Receptive speech delays, SPD, and auditory processing/working memory delays were diagnosed in preschool but no testing has been done since...
  11. Thanks so much! I've been wanting to make one of these for a while and your directions will make it easier.
  12. We have used Dreambox. I think it is a good supplement but my daughter's interest in it waxes and wanes. I would not feel confident using it as a real curriculum, nor would I pay full price for it. I do think it was worth the homeschool buyers co op price though.
  13. Has anyone compared this to Evan Moor's daily math practice? I'm trying to decide which to purchase and would love some feedback.
  14. Hey guys, Just wanted to post that Amazon.com's deal of the day is a Scotch Thermal Laminator for 16.99... Just wanted to post that because I LOVE my laminator and I know some of you ladies have been watching for a good deal on one. I wish they sold proclicks for 16.99, LOL. Hailey
