  1. I posted earlier on the afterschooling board, but also wanted to post here. Am looking for more thoughts on how to approach this issue right now -- and also help in weighing what do do next year... We just started HSing this year, with our 10 year old son (4th grade). We also have a 4 year old daughter who is in public preschool. She has a vision impairment and so after turning 3 (end of EI) she started an integrated preschool class in our public school, in afternoons. This year she is also doing several mornings a week in our homeschool co-ops with her brother. She is bright, quick, and very social. She also has very much a mind of her own! We are considering homeschooling her at some point in the future BUT: 1) vision devices may not be covered if she is not in school system and 2) she's very very active (wondering how hard it would be, esp as her brother is super bright but has attention issues(no problem with behavior at all) and is better in quiet environments. Am wondering how it would be to handle the two together--he has inattentive/ADD and with her we are looking into overactivity and impulsivity. It would be like driving and braking (he needs to be revved up, she needs to be slowed down). So that's our background. But the question now is: Yesterday she and two of her friends were apparently not listening (maybe in circle, not sure) and following directions in her preschool class. So she missed her outside time and stayed in to do math which she missed while she was "playing". This is pretty much what her teacher wrote in her daily logbook. I was wondering what you all think. Is this appropriate? This is the 2nd year she's had this teacher and she really has been a good teacher. My initial reaction though is YIKES! --isn't this really taking away recess, and when she's still in preschool? Especially if they are acting out perhaps they need the active time to settle. She's only 4 1/2, won't turn 5 until next August. I guess I'm sensitive b/c when her brother was still in public school he tried very hard and always good behavior but when he did not finish work he was held in from recess repeatedly. Even when he was also receiving OT b/c activity helped his attention issues. So what do you all think -- am I overreacting or is this appropriate? How could it have been handled differently? And...with our background, would you consider considering pulling her or continue working w/in school system and then afterschooling? She does currently have an IEP and is special needs because of her vision, but is on par or ahead in most areas. Amy
  2. Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum but I'm so glad to have found it! I am a home school graduate and currently in grad school. Our family discovered classical education a little bit too late, but I absolutely love the educational philosophy and teaching methods, not to mention subject material (I'm a Classics major). I receive a lot of requests from parents who ask me to tutor their children in writing. Does anyone have any experience with teaching classical writing to public school children (mostly Junior High age)? Is it possible to teach through the progymnasmata if I only tutor the students once a week for an hour? Thanks for the input!
  3. Ok, I am going to vent for just a second so please forgive me. My husband and I are debating public school vs. Private/home schooling. He agrees that educationally private/home schooling is better. He just does not want our kids to live in a Christian bubble. AH, I am so frustrated. Why should a 5-6 year old be exposed to the real world? Why can't we preserve our children's innocence? What's so bad about that? Why shouldn't my child be allowed to learn in a well-behaved, controlled environment? I welcome your view point. PLEASE AGREE and DISAGREE with me. Feel free to "knock some sense" into me. I just want the best for my kids, and I feel like I have to apologize for it. Yuck, I am so over this :ack2: (ok, gotta love that face icon). BTW, son would be hanging out with kids from church who are Christian and involved with Classical Conversations which would mean he would be with other Christians. Home schoolers in general are not in a Christian bubble, but my son would be, I guess. He is involved with community, secular sports and activities. Just to clarify!
  4. Can you tell me anything about McGraw Hill Math for K and Harcourt Math for 1st grade? This is the curriculum used at the local school. Just wanted to hear what you may think about it. Reformed/ new math?
  5. Georgia Graduation Rates may drop as much as 16%. Check it out: http://www.ajc.com/news/grad-rate-could-fall-831614.html:001_huh:
  6. I have my own views and objections about this. I went to a classroom where the test criteria was on the board in my son's potential ps. Why do you think teachers "teaching to test" is so detrimental?
  7. My Dh wants me to go to the local public school and ask them any questions that I may have for my son's kindergarten year. I am almost sure that I do not want ds going to public school. I have the opportunity to sit down with the principal and ask any question that I may have. Reluctantly i will go check it out. So far here are some of my questions: 1. Do you offer spanish classes during school or after school? 2. What do you do with a child who is already reading and is becoming strong in comprehension? 3. Do you "teach to test"? 4. What type of Math curriculum do you use (new math)? 5. I want to get a list of the curriculum they will be using. Anything I may be missing? cabreban

  9. For some reason I am panicked. I promised my dh that I would try to have an open mind about sending our child (K) to Public School. He works for the school system. I have all of the respect in the world for the teachers. I just had a terrible public school experience at some of the top es, ms, hs in my state (bullying, discouraging teachers, teacher calling me a bimbo, sexual harassment, peer pressure etc.) Please pray that I will not operate out of my flesh tonight. I feel very pressured to try public school. I feel like I am not trusting God that He will lead our family. It seems like everyone knows what they are doing next year for school (including dh) and I feel like I am jumping out of an airplane and hoping my parachute will open. HELP! Please pray for me.

  11. My kids are transitioning back to public school this fall. We happily used Math-U-See for the last two years at home. I anticipate math being the most difficult subject for the girls to catch up in--since it is just done very differently in MUS. So supposedly our district is beginning a new math program, Math Expressions. Anyone heard of it? Good/bad opinions?
