  1. Enjoying a vacation up here close to the Canadian border, and loving this part of the world, and searching for colleges with good Creative Writing programs led us to look at University of British Columbia, and some other places in the country. Can anybody tell me about attending college in Canada? Anything a US citizen needs to know or pay special attention to when considering a Canadian college?
  2. Does anyone know or can listen and write down in French the lyrics to the Les Schtroumpfs cartoons? My daughter is trying to learn it in French and my ear isn't good enough. Youtube link to the song: Is that allowed? Merci!
  3. Ok, Canadians, 'fess up. Who/where are you? ;-) I'm in Quebec.

  5. We live in Canada, and have a ds who is entering grade 9 via homeschooling. We have completed the TWTM sequence of science from grade 1-8. My ds will be doing Saxon Algebra 1 this coming year. We are interested in using the Apologia (Dr. Wile) science texts. My understanding is that in order for our universities to accept a student into sciences, they need to complete both the regular and AP texts of the Bio, Chem, and Physics courses of Apologia (If someone from Canada can confirm this or expound on this, I would appreciate this.) I am in need of some answers so I can better judge what to do for our science this year and to prepare him accordingly for sciences in university if he so chooses to go that route. If a student followed the 8 year sequence of science outlined in TWTM, does this student still need to complete one or both of Apologia's Physical Science and General Science courses? Is one more necessary than the other? Is there any reason this student should do one or both of these courses? If it is good to do both, can a student do both in one year? OR can this student skip these courses and start directly into Apologia's Physical and General Science courses and go straight into the regular Biology, Chemistry, or Physics course? For the regular Biology, Chemistry, and Physics courses offered by Apologia, which course should a student do first, second, third? Can a student do two of these regular courses in one year? Can a student do the regular course and the advance course of either Bio, Chem, or Physics (of Apologia's) together in one year? I understand that the student needs to do certain maths before certain sciences, but I am unclear as to which. Could you please share which maths need to be with which sciences? Is there any other science program that would be better suited or any other advice or suggestions? Thank you
  6. Hi all, I'm looking for places to find used curriculum in Canada. I've searched online but often links in blog posts are no longer good and the page/site/store/group no longer exists. I usually get my stuff when I'm in the US (much cheaper anyway) but it will be a while before I head to the States. Here are the resources that I know of: Homeschooler Haven http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/homeschoolerhaven/info Canbookexchange, http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Canbookexchange/info Homeschool swap on Facebook Is there anything else out there?
  7. These are from Prince Edward Island 1st grade 2nd grade 3rd grade 4th grade 5th grade 6th grade
  8. I finally ordered my kids’ passports! Now we’ve got an itch to go to Canada. (We live near Seattle.) So, if you had a 3 year old and a 7 year old, which would be more fun: two nights in Victoria, or two nights in Vancouver? Plus, what should we do when we get there? Our budget is $600. Thanks for the tips!
  9. I'm not sure what the reading level is of this short eBook; that's one of the things I'd like help with, in addition to spotting typos (it's pretty clean) and evaluating the content. Maybe 5-6 testers would be ideal to download it free and let me know what they think. I wrote this book because in a weird patriotic moment, I decided to teach my kids to sing The Maple Leaf Forever, a song my mother grew up singing in school every day, and couldn't find much information about the song - or about why it's no longer sung... and why it was passed over for O Canada as our official national anthem. Here's a short description of the book (which is itself rather short): At one time, Canada's most famous "national anthem," this patriotic song has all but vanished from today's schools and public performances. What was it about, and if it was so beloved, why does nobody sing it anymore? Through the song's lyrics, this approachable, short living history of Canada explores our British, French and First Nations heritage from the 1700s to the present. Please reply or PM me if you're interested! :-)
  10. I want to invest in a mill and wheat berries ... BUT, I live in Nova Scotia with no place to purchase cheap or even reasonably priced berries. My local health food store is ridiculously high-priced and none of my local grocery stores carry them. So, if you are Canadian, where do you purchase your wheat berries? The western provinces, Amazon :tongue_smilie:?
  11. Hello Everyone. First of all, a quick introduction. I live in Western Canada and have been homeschooling my children for 6 years now using the WTM. This fall, my oldest son with our full support will be trying out a nearby public school for his 7th grade. I will be homeschooling the younger ones as usual. The school system where we live is of good quality. We will be checking out schools nearby to see which one is best for him to be in. My first request is: I also would like to know what I should focus on helping him learn and build from now until September to prepare him for his first year in public school. My second question is...how do I afterschool my son. How do I decide what to cover? When do we or should we afterschool? Thirdly, how do I transition from homeschooling classically to knowing the school will not be covering some material (ie: grammar and its diagramming, lessons, etc) as in depth as we did or will not cover some subjects at all (we did world history, they will be doing social studies)? I did search for some time on the threads of this board for answers to these questions, but there are so many pages that I could only find bits and pieces of information. I would really like to hear from parents whose children are in the middle to high school years on how they afterschool. I am also interested in hearing from any Canadian parents like myself.
  12. What is the best option for purchasing curriculum in Ontario? I'm thinking widely used stuff like Singapore Math, Math U See, SOTW, etc. The only supplier I know of is Rainbow Resources. And of course, Amazon.com, but they don't have a discounted shipping to Canada deal like Rainbow (I think). Or is it better to make a huge purchase off a US site (any suggestions?) and ship to a PO Box in Buffalo and go down to pick it up there? I really appreciate any tips you may have. Very new at this, Lida

  14. H1N1 kills 13-year-old Toronto boy; dad urges parents to watch kids carefully TORONTO — A grief-stricken father whose otherwise healthy teenage son died suddenly from the swine flu struggled to make sense of the tragedy Tuesday and urged other parents to keep a close eye on their ill children. Paul Frustaglio said it took barely more than a day for the H1N1 flu virus to kill Evan - his "best friend" - who turned 13 last month. "He fell so quickly," Frustaglio told The Canadian Press. "I was watching him. I was there when he died." Evan Frustaglio's death on Monday came on the same day as health authorities across Canada began rolling out a vaccination program against H1N1. The teen would not have been considered a priority for the flu shot because he wasn't in a high-risk group. The avid hockey player in Grade 8 began feeling ill over the weekend during a tournament in London, Ont. His symptoms included fever and some vomiting. His dad took him to a walk-in clinic on Sunday afternoon, where he was seen and sent home with advice to take some over-the-counter medication. The family felt confident it was a simple case of flu that would soon pass. That seemed to be happening. By Monday morning, his fever had broken and he was no longer nauseated. The family thought he was on the mend. Evan asked to take a bath. Ten minutes later, as his horrified father watched, he suddenly went limp. His father tried CPR as paramedics rushed to the west-end home. "They worked on my son feverishly for over two hours," Frustaglio said. "His heart wasn't responding. The disease had taken over his heart." The coroner's office had informed the family that Evan had swine flu. Public health authorities confirmed that Tuesday and scheduled a news conference for later in the day. Frustaglio refused to criticize the walk-in clinic, saying he was in too much grief to think about what might have been done differently. However, he did warn parents against complacency or thinking that patients with swine flu will show symptoms for many days before deteriorating gradually. "This didn't even take a day and a half - it hit my son within 10 minutes," he said. "If any one of your children has any kind of flu-like symptoms, please don't take your eyes off of them. Make sure you get the medical attention you need and, if at any time, they don't seem right, especially with their breathing, just get medical attention." Evan's family was taking Tamiflu as a precaution and had immediately informed Evan's teammates of what had happened so they, too, could seek medical attention. Evan is survived by his brother Will, 10, and his mom, Anne-Marie, who was too distressed to speak at length. "I'm really having a hard time with this," she said. The death sparked an outpouring of sympathy and tributes on Facebook. One writer said she hoped the tragedy would heighten awareness of the dangers of H1N1. "I feel for your loss; my heart aches for your sorrow," Tracey Parr wrote. "Hope Evan's passing will heighten the awareness of this flu, and preventative measures needed to be taken." Frustaglio called Evan a "wonderful" boy who was "full of spirit." His son had switched this year to the Hill Academy north of Toronto because "it was all about hockey." "My son is gone. He was here just 24 hours ago and now he's not here. He was 13. He didn't deserve to die," he said. "Whenever you hear stories like this in the press, I say to myself, 'Oh my god, I can never imagine how I could ever live without one of my kids,' and now I'm asking myself that question." and on the weekend, there was this one: A previously healthy pre-teen girl from eastern Ontario has died at an Ottawa hospital after being diagnosed with H1N1 influenza. Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, medical officer of health for the Eastern Ontario Health Unit, said the girl had no pre-existing medical conditions when she was admitted to hospital, where she died over the weekend. "My concern is that it underscores the importance that we put onto the potential complications of any flu, especially a novel flu like H1N1," Roumeliotis told CBC News. "It is extremely sad to see the virus claim the life of a child," he added in a statement. Officials are not saying exactly where the girl lived or how old she was, at the request of her family. It is the second death — and the first death of a child — linked to H1N1, also known as swine flu, in the area served by the Eastern Ontario Health Unit, which includes the counties of Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, Prescott, Russell and the city of Cornwall. A 52-year-old eastern Ontario woman died in June after testing positive for H1N1. The Eastern Ontario Board of Health said it is putting school-age children on its priority list for the H1N1 vaccine. As of Friday, children living in eastern Ontario will be able to get the vaccine. Dr. Roumeliotis said this expansion of the priority list was motivated by the girl’s death and the high rate of absenteeism in schools. :(
  15. I thought I'd share this, particularly for any other Canadians on the board, as our vaccine is slightly diff than the US and just began, for the most part, today. We got ours today - well, the kids & I did.. husband is working and will prolly have to wait until the weekend. It was... semi-organised chaos. :tongue_smilie: The only public clinic here right now is in the small gym at a high school, so lineups were outside - it's not winter here yet by any stretch of the imagination (it was between 0-2), but it was chilly waiting there...I'm just glad we went when we did, early. We were there almost an hour before they opened and got in line with only about 25 people ahead of us... by the time we got in at 1pm, there was at least 100 lined up, if not more. Longer line even when we got out of there. I've heard that some of the waits in Calgary and Edmonton were 4+ hours. Not very well organised in some respects. They use the back entrance to a small gym and there was NO parking designated for clinic attendees... parking at *normal* times ain't pretty in this town. People were parking wherever, which was really annoying the nearby college's security, I heard. It was cool, but not raining/snowing - I'm not sure what they'd have done if it had been, using the tiny gym like they are... can you imagine standing in cold October rain/snow with little kids, for what might be a couple of hours? (I was told the wait time later in the day was about 2 hours, most of that outside) That said, the people running the clinic were friendly, for the most part. Things went pretty smoothly inside - we were about an hour and a half inside, and that's taking into consideration that we were moving a bit slower than many because we have a child with disabilities who needs extra time to understand/process/get around/etc. As for the shot itself - it didn't hurt any worse than the seasonal shot (I'd heard that vaccines with adjuvants can hurt more), though the nurse mentioned that when she had hers, she noticed that her was a bit more sore...both our daughter and I have fairly sore arms (son doesn't appear to be sore) - but having only had the seasonal shot once (last week), we haven't much with which to compare it. The last time I had any kind of shot (as opposed to blood drawn or IVs) was about 16 years ago, and the last time the kids did (prior to last week's seasonal shot), they were too young to really remember. So, as of this point, the only 'side effects' appear to be slightly sore arms {and a little trauma on the part of our daughter - we've discovered she has a previously unknown fear of needles, but she did well and got through it}..none of us have turned purple or grown feathers out of our ears. :D /vax ramble
  16. How much will the prices go up? How much has it gone up in the past? I am wondering if I need to go ahead and purchase IG 100 History, since I am not having any luck at the moment finding it used. Any thoughts??
  17. Okay fellow Canucks, think we could get a discussion going that would be heated enough to get Canadian politics banned here? Somehow I don't see it happening... :D
