  1. Tomorrow (today actually), my HS group, 130 of us- thats kids and parents, are going on an hour long train ride. I think its great but how can i make it educational? We are all just boarding and sitting together, theres no tour or program for it. :bigear:
  2. I met this new homeschool family back in the summer at a co-op field trip. They don't smile. The whole family doesn't smile. Seriously. The mom if you smile at her and keep smiling at her gives you a weak attempt at a smile. I sort of felt unsettled by it. It was really weird at the time and I brushed it off, as they were new and unsettled themselves about meeting all these new people. Later, I learned that Dad had an epiphany and forced the family to start attending the Mormon church. Mom grew up non-denominational. Ok, to each his own. Mom and at least one daughter is deaf, unsure about baby. I studied as a sign language interpreter. So, I'm comfortable around the hearing impaired and can communicate easily. The one daughter seemed a bit wild in her behaviour, dress and physical appearance, like Helen Keller wild and angry. I taught my grade 2-3 co-op class today and our new student arrived. This wild child, daughter. I greeted her verbally (I could see her hearing aids were in), she grunted at me, shoved pasted me and took a seat. OK, that was interesting. I started the class and gave directions making sure the classroom was silent before I gave those directions and making sure she was looking at me and my face was easily accessible for lip reading if necessary. I've done this before, so I know what to do. This child did not follow any directions during the whole class. My friend would have to touch her shoulder, get in her face and repeat everything I said. Then the child would do about 30% of what was asked of her. This is a lapbooking class. There are a lot of directions. I know she could understand what was being said, because she would respond to another girl across the room at a screaming level, trying to enter into that conversation. Then we had snack. I served the snack and she made a huge deal about how we HAD to have a Mormon prayer said over the snack or we were all in sin. :001_huh: I'm thinking, "Sweety, this is a Baptist co-op and we just say a simple grace." Then she turned to one of the few non-denominational kids in the group and said, "You have to pray like this or you could die if you eat this food." The girl looked at her, looked at her food and put down her plate. She then looked at me to ask if it was ok to eat it. I told her it was fine, go ahead and eat your pancakes. I'm not naive enough to believe that statement is a teaching from the Mormon church, but she continued to "share" and "share" and "share" until I finally said, "That's enough dear, time to go wash your hands." I am worried. There is so much to deal with here. 1. Rude behavior. 2. Disregard of instructions. 3. Wandering around the classroom. 4. Taking things from other people's places even though she has the exact same items in front of her. 5. Screaming instead of talking. 6. The whole prayer thing. and so much more I haven't even got into here. I need help, prayers and any suggestions. Also, if you are Mormon, can you let me know if there is something I should know about the whole prayer thing? I don't think there is anything really there, but just in case. Thanks,
  3. I am thinking it might be time to add a formal writing program to our mix of resources. WWE seems to be the go to curriculum, and I think the style might be less painful for my son than ones that have more emphasis on the creative side (he has a full-on meltdown if asked to think up something to write by himself). I would love to know: How American is it? Obviously it's a SWB effort so it's going to be US-centric to a certain extent, and that's perfectly understandable, no problem. But is it really biased, as in, would I have to change half the selections to make it more balanced for us? Are the literature selections quoted verbatim, or edited like in FLL (I loved the concept behind FLL, but I was irritated to find after my kids had learned their first ever poem to recite ['The Caterpillar'] that it had been changed, and we had to relearn it correctly; we won't be continuing with the next level)? Are there any other excellent writing programs in a similar vein? My kids aren't keen on creative writing. We have the basic grammar, sentence building stuff covered with Fitzroy Word Skills. So I'm just after something that would help them work towards writing good paragraphs and structuring an essay, letter or whatever.
  4. Background: I bought a 96 Taurus GL off craigslist for $400 about a week ago. I had someone come with me to look it over (since i know nothing about cars). The car checked out ok. Lots of newer parts and ran ok. The seller admitted to the jerk but thought it was motor mount. (she was an older lady if that makes any difference?). Did not mention any starting issues. Took car home and had it looked over- needs exhaust pipe welded on (near some converter spot? its spring action?), needed a few light bulbs, a/c doesnt work (needs freon), had an oil leak from where there was a new water pump and they missed a gasket (fixed with putty and fixing gasket), motor mounts checked out ok. -------------------------------------------- I go to start my car after the look over and it clicks/whirs. I get it jump started and its fine until today. I go to start the car today and needs jump started again. No lights were left on. The battery looks newer. It is fine once jumped. Could this be battery? Starter? alternator? Something else? ***battery is smoking from one of the two caps on the top on left cap. Smells like burning. Energizer battery part #: 58R-610e SKU: 9151277 ETA: Lady who sold me the car just texted that this is " the battery that came with it ". Apparently shes lying or the guy who looked the car over with me is an idiot because he said it was newer. ---------------------- Second issue. The transmission. She thought it was the motor mounts causing the jerking, but i dont think so. The car does the typical jerk when you hit 10mph. Its fine otherwise. If i ease into 10mph+, it doesnt jerk. It has a slow pick up and go too. Not sure if they are related? Now, i did check the transmission fluid and its OVERfull. I am talking beyond the fill line and foaming. I am having it suctioned out Saturday. What is the likely hood that will fix the issue? HELP Hive mechanics!!
  5. It was suggested to me by my sister in law that I post my heart of dakota and other curriculum for sale here but I see the rule about having 50 posts on here before you list anything for sale. I totally understand the rule for that, however I need to sell the items quick. Any ideas other than ebay? I thought about perhaps craigslist. I just don't have a lot of time to post and comment right now, I have an infant and so my computer time is about 15 minutes a day :001_smile:. I would love to spend the time to get to know everyone but it just isn't realistic for me right now. So, that being said....any thoughts on where I could post the items asap without being charged an arm and a leg to do so? Thanks in advance for any help or advise you can give. Inga
  6. C has her 1st Science Fair at the end of the month and since we havent touched on Science, Im open to suggestions for projects she can do. I asked her, but she really doesnt know either. I thought maybe something on Astronomy since we will be doing Apologia Astronomy this fall. Ideas? Thoughts? If your child has been in a science fair, what did they do when they were younger?
  7. Long story short, first a little background. I am a 24 year old widow with 3 kiddos. My girls are 6 and 4 and I have a 2 year old son. We are blessed to be receiving enough in survivor benefits from social security to make it with out me working. However, I am now a full time college student, 99% online, which equals a lot of not sleeping. We always planned on homeschooling but when Steve passed and I realized I was going to have to be in school full time for the first semester or two I enrolled my 6 year old in 1st grade and elected for full time public PreK for my 4 year old, which she is eligible for because she has a speech delay. Fast forward a bit and my 1st grader is not doing well in school at all, then her heart condition worsens and her cardiologist says to pull her out. The home-bound public school program is a bust (2 hours a week maximum) so I enroll her in Connections Academy's free public online school. The curriculum is full of busy work and is way to easy for her except in reading, which she is behind in. There is no option to change the curriculum to fit her better. At this point I am thinking of just pulling her out and doing it myself. She can't be in public school and I am not getting what I need from Connections Academy. I am worried about the extra work load on myself being fully responsible for her school in addition to my school work and the lack of formal accountability. These are things I would normally lean on Steve for. I don't have anyone else in my life that is able/willing to help me with schooling on a regular basis and most of them disprove of homeschooling in general. Any outside insights or just a push would be appreciated. Thank you.
  8. Has anyone used either of these programs? Any input on them would be great. :) Specifically, I am looking for what you thought of them overall, but also if, while you were attending, how the courses looked, and what the work was like. Finally, once you are enrolled, if you take courses at the local college, or at the local high school, is it easy to transfer them? All help is really appreciated, thank you!!!! :)
  9. Ok, so I am completely new to this, but my 3rd grade son is completely bored in school. He is much more advanced than the work he is given. He is in the Gifted/Talented Program at school, which he says is the only class he really likes. Anyway, he reads very well, does math very well and soaks up every fact about history and science quickly. He's bored!!! I bought the book and have read the parts for elementary (Well-Trained Mind). I have a few questions. For instance, in relation to spelling, do I need to have him go back and run through the Spelling Workout books for lower levels (A&B) or just start him at C since this is for 3rd grade? I don't want him to miss anything because I skip - but he already aces every spelling test he ever has and can spell words most people I work with cannot even spell. Also, in the reading curriculum, should I start him out with the Ancients he should have been reading in 1st grade? Or, should I have him start with Late Renaissance/Early Modern, as is recommended by 3rd grade. Hate that I am starting late to the game with this, but so happy to have found this book and this forum!! :bigear: I'm all ears. :lol: Thanks for any advice!!
  10. hello, i am really struggling with which curriculum to pick for my children and was hoping to get some good feedback. let me 1st tell you about us & our "challenges"... i have 2 boys--both have been in public school (this will be my 1st year to HS). they "should" be in 2nd & 1st grades, however, my older son is autistic & has fallen behind & so they will both be doing 1st grade this year. i want school to be about successes & not failures (which is what was happening in public school) i don't believe either of my children will like really structured & strict learning (text books and workbook work), but would rather enjoy hands-on or computer-based/dvd programs. in the past, my children have never allowed me to be "teacher" and to make it worse, i am a horrible teacher (i know something bc i know it, but can't really explain it to you). we don't have thousands of dollars to pour into a curriculum that "might" work the kids can read, but really need to be taught a lot of the "basics" so they can be successful readers they struggle with math concepts (time, money, addition facts, etc) i do not know how to set up a lesson plan &/or schedule (not that it has to be followed "perfectly", but used as a guideline) my health & my older son's health is up and down--surgeries, etc...so i need to be able to pick up and go & take school easily with us i really appreciate u taking the time to read this and appreciate your help. blessings, candace p.s. the things we have "practiced" with this summer are time4learning.com & a little bit of my father's world. t4l keeps the boys attention, but they struggle with being able to read the instructions as well as understand the math concepts. i love the way mfw is set up, but am not sure if it will address all the needs of the boys (math, reading, etc)
  11. Hi, all! I have a high-school aged son who had to drop out of 9th grade because of severe migraines. They continue, and are unpredictable; we never know from day to day whether he'll be functional or will be in his room in pain. He is now 18 years old. We had him being taught by a tutor, but he missed so many classes that this became unaffordable. Now I'm investigating online classes; the important thing is that they have to be self-paced, because he's not going to be able to keep up with a time-based (one assignment per week) class. Does anybody have high-school level online self-paced courses to recommend? He's a very bright kid who's been out of school for four years, and I'm at my wit's end. Apart from all the fears about his never being able to live independently, I need to make sure that he has the skills so that if the migraines let up, he can move on with his life. PLEASE no migraine advice; trust me, we have seen specialist after specialist after specialist, and we've tried everything that is appropriate to his case.
  12. I need help! I am so lost with where we are with school right now. Right before we started school in August, we found out that dh got a great new job that required us to relocate to a new city about 3 hours away. Things started off great, and then we listed our house in September. We could afford to all move before the house sold, so dh worked during the week at his new job, staying with a friend, and came home every weekend. In the meantime, I was at home with 3 kids. The oldest is in the 3rd grade, the middle was 4 and was left out of school completely, and the youngest was under a year at the time. We had LOTS of showings but no offers, but that required lots of work and time on my part. Slowly things started to slip until we were just doing the basics. Then in February, we were finally able to move and got the house under contract. And basically since then school has been VERY sporadic. I was falling behind before the move and now I have no idea where we are in relation to where we should be. I was dividing all of the school work neatly by week, but I don't even know where we are now. Basically, my notebook and calendar look great til about week 16, then it starts to fall apart. So what do I do? Just keep going and try to finish as much work as we can? I'm starting to see my friends talking about how they only have 30 or 40 days left and they're planning for next year!:001_huh: We're in a new city, I hardly know any homeschoolers although I know there's a big community here, but that's a whole other subject. Any encouragement or suggestions would be great!
  13. My son is in 8th grade going into his freshman year, and is worried he won't get anytime to hang out with his friends and has asked me to compose a light summer school schedule. Can any of you homeschool moms out there help me?
