  1. I am wondering if anyone here has tried the pay version of Prodigy? The site says a lot about all the extra fun stuff that the kids get. But I want to know, what will I get? Will I have the ability to give my kids a greater variety of problems? Will they get more instruction? My kids love it, and it is only $5/month, but I don't really want to shell out more money just so that my kids can dress their characters in different clothes. They are going through the questions very quickly, and if I am going to pay, I need to know that there is a way to make sure they are not getting the same questions over and over.
  2. Hello, Someone I know wants to find a supplemental online resource for his 3rd grader. Something along the lines of abcmouse.com for little ones. Is time4learning one of those options? What other options are there? Free would be great, but he's willing to pay for it for a reasonable price. Thanks! ETA: dragonbox is another good one.
  3. Is there a list of online/virtual schools that are NCAA approved?
  4. I am entering my 3rd year of homeschooling and I have a soon to be 7th grader and 5th grader. I have had horrible experience teaching my girls history and science and Im now looking for a more fun and interactive curriculum for them. Something that's not going to bore them to death. I looked up a few but either they were nothing but reading or way out of my price range. Help me please!
  5. We are considering enrolling our son in Memoria Press' online First Form Latin class for next year. Does anyone have any recommendations for teachers, or feedback/suggestions to us in choosing a section and instructor? This is really important to us, as it will be our son's first online class. He also does best with written material, and has a little more difficulty with information presented orally. So we are looking for a teacher who is not a quick/loud talker or encourages a classroom with a great deal of commotion. The sections we are looking at primarily list Paul Cable and Catherine Tinnis, but any feedback on instructors' styles and the First Form online class in general (at Memoria) would be very much appreciated!
  6. Has anyone tried the live classes at CurrClick? I'm very tempted to try the IEW writing class with my dd. The prices seem reasonable but I haven't seen any reviews. Hope someone can share their experience with me.
  7. Hello, I run a co-op which meets weekly. I'm looking for a rigorous, high school history curriculum that covers Medieval and Renaissance periods. I would like to run the class flipped, meaning students watch lectures online, and then we have discussions during our weekly meeting. Can anyone recommend any online lectures that would be appropriate for this? Thanks so much! Dee
  8. A mom just told me about this site and I haven't registered or worked on it myself. It is free and that works great for me. I am concerned about safety on line for him. Also, I am concerned about the content in a subject that I don't know anything about. Has anyone used this? Also, any other suggestions? I am open, but it must be reasonably priced.
  9. Hello, Can anyone suggest a good and engaging online "Art Appreciation" class that would be appropriate for Logic/Rhetoric learners? Ideally, there would be online video "lectures" and other supporting materials. Suggestions? Thanks!
  10. Hi all, I home schooled my 3 from the beginning but had to put them into public school 2 years ago because I had to go back to work full time (8-5 type job). The first year they were in K and 2nd and it wasn't too bad, or maybe I was too busy to notice how bad it really was. Long story short, Common Core is not working and it is destroying my precious ones (maybe a little dramatic, but Common Core is not the discussion here). I am pregnant with number 4 due in July, for financial reasons and my sanity my husband is going to stay home with the baby in lieu of daycare. I am pulling my older 2 (3rd is still in preschool) either to go to one of the 3 local charter schools that don't use Common Core, or they will be homeschooled. We are on waiting lists for the charter schools and our odds are not good, so I am planning for HSing next year. What I need... I need something the older 2 (going into 2nd and 4th) can do independently during the day while I am at work. Something that they can get some benefit from that will be easy for them to do with minimal input and support from their dad. He will be there to trouble shoot and help them get set up but it really needs to be something they can do by themselves. Our background is using TWTM resources, SOTW history, FLL, WWE, Sonlight, and Math Mammoth, I was a Classical Conversations Foundations tutor (and campus director for a short time), and I am a curriculum junkie so if someone has mentioned it on this board chances are I've bought it tried it sold it possibly more than once :) Time 4 Learning... We have done Time 4 Learning before and it was ok. I know it is not comprehensive and not enough for a complete program, but it does track their progress somewhat and it is easy for them to navigate through. Cons: it's not Christian based, so the science will be more like public school, and the history will not go along with what we are doing with Story of the World and Sonlight in the evenings/weekends. Also I think it has Social Studies type nonsense like community helpers and such which I think is a waste of time. Easy Peasy... it looks fairly easy to navigate, though I know sometimes the links don't work and you need to get on the FB group to let the admins know etc. It's more comprehensive than T4L but you need to print out more things and you need to track progress on paper. NC is very easy reporting wise so I'm not super worried about this, I just will have to stay on top of it. Something else... SOS will not work on our Macs and I don't really like it anyway. I need something web based. Ideas? Piecing together a whole slew of websites will likely be too hard for my littles to navigate independently. Questions I'm not asking... not asking for opinions on if this situation will work, the decision is made and now we just have to figure out how to make it work. I am spending at least 2-3 hours each night after work with my kids reteaching them in a way they can understand in order to help them answer the question in the way Common Core wants them answered, so "not having enough time to do it all" is not a factor. Yes I know it will be hard and I will have no free time, but my children's well being is at stake that is more important. There is not an option for me to stay home, I make significantly more than my husband when benefits are factored it and my job has more opportunity for upward growth and flexibility. All this said I really do respect what you ladies (and few gentlemen) think. I just don't want to waste anyone's time bringing up issues that are not relevant or up for discussion. Thanks in advance for your input.
  11. I would really love to outsource my ds English Lit and writing for next year. He is currently in 10th grade but he does not have strong writing or literature analysis skills. I've been searching the boards for info regarding online classes. Here are some I've seen posts about: Landry Potter's School Lukeion Blue Tent Write-At-Home PA Homeschool (seems to only be AP--he is not ready for that yet) If you have experience with these, or any others I am not aware of, I would truly appreciate your input: what you like or don't like, etc. I am particularly interested in something that will help him in the following areas: accountability meeting deadlines improving & grow in his lit. analysis & writing skills prepare him adequately for AP class or a CC class in the future discussion of literature with others (beside mom :) would be super! AND--something to help win support of dh--not cost an arm and a leg!
  12. I am looking for a online group course to study Russian, not individual. My daughter is studying Russian, seriously, every day, and I would like to see her interact with other students studying Russian, at least to hear it in a group setting. We don't have in the area any Russian people or churches, or groups, or schools, so this kind of interaction is not possible to happen. But may be somebody knows or takes a good online course with a few students participation. Appreciate any suggestions. Beside Landry academy, I won't be able to afford it. Lena
  13. My dear friend lives in a developing country, and just learned this week that she will need to homeschool her Kindergartner this year. The cost of shipping books there is exorbitant, so she is looking for as many online resources as possible. She is brand new to homeschooling. What would you use for Kindergarten if you had to rely entirely on online resources (not streaming, as their internet connection is slow/spotty)? Thank you SO MUCH for any and all resources & information!!
  14. If anyone would like to see how their students are doing, I received this, in an email from the TTUISD Middle School Principal, yesterday: "Lanny, the 2011 STAAR exams were released yesterday. You might want (DD) to take the sixth grade tests. You will find them at" http://www.tea.state.tx.us/student.assessment/staar/testquestions
  15. I was homeschooled from 4th grade through high school and am currently a PhD student in Classics at the University of Minnesota. I've been tutoring homeschooled children in writing, Latin, and Greek for 8 years now. One area in which parents are always anxious about is teaching their children how to write. I have done a good deal of research in various methods of teaching writing and tried them with my students. So far, I have found that the Institute for Excellence in Writing curriculum has worked really well with my students who are extremely hesitant to write and need specific, step-by-step guidance. They quickly gain confidence and a sense of accomplishment using the Structure and Style method developed by Daniel Webster and Andrew Pudewa. I have also found that the Lost Tools of Writing curriculum, published by the Circe Institute, provides a very organized and less-complicated (when compared with Classical Composition or Classical Writing) way to teach the structure of classical composition. With that said, I would like to share with you all that I am personally offering online live tutorials in these two areas. This coming summer, I will be giving two short workshops (3-4 days long) on the stylistic techniques from the Institute for Excellence in Writing. Then, beginning in the Fall of 2013, I will offer a year-long tutorial using the Lost Tools of Writing Level One. You can find further information on all the curriculum mentioned of through the links below. http://coramdeotutorials.com/ - Information on my tutorials http://www.excellenceinwriting.com/ - Institute for Excellence in Writing http://www.circeinst...t-tools-writing - The Lost Tools of Writing by the Circe Institute
  16. Last night, I Googled "Purdue University" and this URL was on page one. It looks like a very helpful resource. Link for 7th to 12th graders is on the upper left hand side of the web page. HTH http://owl.english.purdue.edu/
  17. Next year we are going to do a writing class and have decided to outsource it. I think I've come down to two different vendors: Laurel Tree's HIgh School Compositon: http://www.laureltre....com/page5.html An Johns Hopkins CTY Online Crafting the Essay http://cty.jhu.edu/c..._essay_all.html The biggest detectable difference is one in cost (CTY is more than double.) It appears if we wanted to work super hard we could use the self paced CTY version and maybe complete all of the Crafting the Essay class and part or all of the next level. I'm not sure that's really advisable, but it sits out there on the edge of my mind and I wonder about it. I'm hoping for folks to tell me if they have used either of these programs, and what they thought about them. Did they see improvement? Did it help with college and college applications or the SAT writing portion? Stunning positives? Horrible negatives? If by some chance, someone has used both, I'd love a comparison.
  18. Not sure if this is the best place to put this. I am looking for a program for my special-needs 4 yr old to do when my older son needs one-on-one schooling time. My 4 yr old isn't reading, but he recognizes and knows the sounds of all the letters. He also does pretty well with numbers and is very good with computers/electronics. We have a regular pc and a kindle fire. I haven't had much success finding educational programs for the kindle, and would prefer one for the pc, anyway, so he doesn't get distracted by other apps on the kindle. We have done starfall but he gets bored with it now since he's been using it for the entire school year. Thanks!
  19. I just discovered this, and thought it would be useful to someone. BYU Independent Study offers fully accredited online High School programs. They have Standard, Advanced, and Adult Diploma programs. They even include tutor contact information. I clicked through random courses and discovered that they are not free. But at the end you get a diploma and high school transcripts. This is just an FYI post. Even thought this is not WTM related, I thought someone might benefit from having this information. :001_smile: AND it might be possible that a university near you might have similar programs available.
  20. I am so pleased to have stumbled upon this group searching for homeschooling support resources. I was wondering if any one else has been or is in a similar situation of enrolling your child in multiple schools or supplementing day school with home instruction. I would love to hear about other family's experiences, tips and traps, time-management strategies and working with a teenager's ADHD. My story. This is my first year homeschooling while my 10th grader is also enrolled full-time in a regular CCC day school. She is also enrolled for a 1/2 unit Driver's Ed @ online, public school; and I am HSing her for credit recovery (Algebra 1 and 9th grade English). For this credit recovery homeschooling curriculum, we use (as directed): SAXON Algebra and G4W (Grammar for Writing - Blue (9th gr)) with EWCO (Everyday Words of Classical Origin) for spelling and vocabulary supplementing with the day school's assigned Literature readings I coached her for the first time this summer with HSing for credit recovery in Religion using the same series as her high school. I say coach but it was generally self-directed. I set the schedule and graded the quizzes. This is my third time using multi-school enrollment. She supplemented her middle years with online Math instruction (gr 4-6). It made a tremendous difference with catching her up. The last two years, I supplemented her math instruction using IXL.com for online skill drills by micro sub-topics and grade. However, she developed extreme text anxiety for many of her classes because of the overwhelming amount of homework required and a lack effective instruction (pacing, scaffolding, no projects) that she had become accustomed to in public school. I wanted her to have a faith-based high-school education in a smaller setting than our community's three 2,000 student warehouses ... oops I mean high school. This is how it came about that my daughter is thrice enrolled. I am dreading Algebra simply because now I will have to teach her instead of the online course doing most of the work.
  21. I was looking for World History lesson plans and I accidentally came upon this site. http://www.sascurriculumpathways.com. I did a search of the forums and couldn't find any reference to SAS Curriculum Pathways. It is free and has online interactive resources for English, Math, History, Science and Spanish. You can also click on your state and find modules that correspond to your state's standards. I might use some of this for 10th grade.
  22. Hi everyone! I just wanted to share a little blog I've started in which I will be posting online resources linked with the units and subunits of SOTW book 4. Most of what you'll find there are extension materials such as primary source documents, and video enrichment for my logic stage son. It's called StoryOfTheWorldBlog I hope you might find it of some use! Cheers, Lisa
  23. What are some of the online French courses you all are using? (Hello, I have never been active here but my friend Caitilin talks so well of this group and I decided to come by and visit!) I have enrolled our daughter in Rolling Cares School French and she is excited, just wondering if anyone there is thinking the same. I know the Rollings personally since their grad school years and they are incredible teachers. Ana Braga-Henebry
  24. I've been laying low for a while. Dd, 6th, would like to have a more structured (mommy-free) curriculum next year. She saw a couple of her best friend's Abeka classes, and loved them. As Catholics, Abeka is not quite the right fit for us. I'm looking at the free K12 (I bristle at the state requirements and controls, but it's free) and at Regina Coeli. I like Regina Coeli very much, but it's pricey. The progymnasmata is very attractive, compared to the straight online learning of K12. If you are using it, what do you think? Is there enough "classroom" time vs. independent work? My daughter is more artistic than academic, but likes to perform well.
  25. I posted this to the Free Curriculum list, but thought I'd mention it separately in case anybody was looking for a math alternative: This is a nonprofit math program, which I support because it's also local to where I live, but the resources are all free for anyone to use online: http://jumpmath1.org/publications Everything in the program is free EXCEPT the workbooks and you can easily create a full math program without them. (not sure how you'd buy the workbooks online - contact the company if you're interested, as they're pretty affordable) (I believe you can view & print the first 30 pages or so of each workbook online) The philosophy is based on SCAFFOLDING - building carefully, step by step. Breaking everything down. Advanced students can progress as quickly as they want; slower students get the support they need. The program spirals - each topic is covered twice in a given year. Click on Teachers' Guides at any grade level for excellent material that will guide you through teaching math, with examples, etc. There are printable Blackline Masters to go with the lessons. Even if you only teach the classes that are described in the guides, without the workbooks, you will be well ahead of the game. In their seminars (I took one), they say the workbook is the least important part of the program. For Grades 3 and up, you start with the FREE Introductory Unit. It is based on fractions, but it's not a "fractions unit," per se. As long as your child has BASIC multiplication (2s, 3s, 4s) they can do the Grade 3 intro unit. More than teaching fractions, it is a confidence builder that teaches kids that ANYONE can do math if they are given the proper steps. Highly recommended! I don't work for the company, but I discovered it last year and we're loving it. The author also has a book called The Myth of Success that you might want to read before you begin trying to educate your children. :001_smile: To me, this curriculum is slightly reminiscent of Math Mammoth, but I find the layouts cleaner with JUMP Math, and the program seems less segmented - everything's all in one place and there's only one thing to do each day. Please don't confuse this with another Canadian math program called "JUMP at Home" which you can sometimes find at Costco and in big bookstores. JUMP sold the rights to those books to a textbook company and they're quite different. :001_huh:
