  1. Looking for Jr. & High School Science curriculum recommendations for a gifted child who wants to either become a scientist or mathematician. Would like curriculum to be biblically sound and heavy on the math. Any recommendations?
  2. I was wondering if anyone could suggest a good resource for teenagers to investigate various career paths. Is it better to read a general book like: The Art of Work: A Proven Path to Discovering What You Were Meant to DoThis book has has a high rating on Amazon (642 people commented on it so far) Or, is it better to refer to some website rather than read a book? Or, is it better to buy more specific books directly related to a field that the teenager MIGHT be interested in? (for instance, a book about a career in writing) Also, what is the best website to refer to for understanding job placement success? I looked at one university's website recently, and they did not convey any information to a parent about the ability of graduates to land jobs. I'm concerned that, many times, universities might teach and offer lines of study for which there is no demand in the real world. Is it pretty difficult to find jobs in most career categories these days? I even saw on one website that it is hard for teachers to find jobs. That surprised me. How do you find out about or even begin to think about potentially great jobs that are lesser known, like a job in a waste treatment plant, for instance? Marsha
  3. Hi- I'm skipping the year four rotation of history for my dss- (7yo and 10 yo) - just not ready to get into all the stuff that happened in the recent past. Thinking about doing either geography or a history biography series such as YWAM Heroes of History and just picking a few to do. Anyone have any suggestions for a great geography curriculum for 7 -10 yo boys that has a Biblical worldview? Would love some hands on activities to do with it. Thanks
  4. :seeya: Hello all! We are actually new to homeschooling. This is our first year. I have two little girls. We are loving it so far. I wasn't sure where to start in the beginning so I purchased some items, Abeka, Apologia, and Saxon. Well I got rid of it all except the Saxon and kept the Abeka Language Arts just because of cost. I went to US History from America's Core Curriculum and a science program by Ryan Murphy. They are ok, but not giving me that WoW feeling! I'm so glad I found information on classical education! I've actually just started the book and I'm really liking it! Although I do have LOTS of questions! I was wandering what you use in addition to this, if anything? Most of what I'm seeing is history; what do people use for math, science? Language arts, reading, and latin is integrated in the history (right?). Also, I have a 6th grader (12) and a 3rd grader (8 1/2); where is a good starting point? I saw in FAQ in 'older child' and 'multiple children' there are suggestions, but is there one thats better or preferred? Should I scrap the curriculum I have (which I don't even like except the Saxon), and start with this after Christmas and go through summer to catch up? Thanks and sorry for all the questions! Amanda

  7. I will be leading a US Geography "class" for our homeschool coop in the fall and have spent hours looking for appropriate texts. This idea was originally born out of Holling C. Hollings books, but these books skip some massive regions of the country, priomarily the west coast, the southeast/deep south and the non-contiguous states of Alaska and Hawaii. I would love to at least incorporate the west and south in this class though suggestions for Alaska and Hawaii are also welcome. For those of you not familiar with Holling's books (and I recommend you GET familiar), they are travelogues of a sort with a character moving through various regions of the country, the plotline intimately tied to the location. These books ride the line between picture books and chapter books, which is really ideal for the crew I anticipate this fall. I would love suggestions of other texts that would have a similar feel and would address the regions I am currently lacking. If you or someone you know have supplemented the Holling books or the Beautiful Feet Geography curriculum in a useful way, I would love to know that too! Thanks! Gina
  8. I am hoping you can offer advice on where we should go on our history study. Next year I’ll have a 3rd & 4th grader –and we do history together. Here’s what we have studied so far: Year 1: the ancients –high level Year 2: A child’s history of the world – from ancients to present – very high level Year 3: Ancient Greece So what suggestions do you have for this next year? Should we study Greece to present at a very high level – so we can being the cycle again the following year – beginning with the ancients when my oldest is in 5th grade? Or should we study medieval/early renaissance next year - and move on to the Late renaissance/early modern in our 5th grade year and do it in more detail? Grateful for your suggestions... Erin
  9. Hi everyone, I'm new to homeschooling, planning to "officially" start this fall with my soon-to-be 7 year old DS. I have two other DSs in the house, a 4 year old and a soon-to-be 2 year old. I have been trying to start homeschooling this summer, not even a full plate but basically math (to catch up what was NOT done this past year in 1st grade, it's amazing how little they do in public schools now in math!! My DS is an advanced reader but still has trouble with basic math facts!) and some language arts. We do homeschooling at our dining room table and we start these activities in the morning. As soon as I am at the table with my eldest, the other two come running. I try to keep them occupied with whatever I have on hand--dry erase boards, preschool workbooks, manipulatives--but they are so distracting and make so much noise, and my previously easygoing and sweet toddler has found his voice and screams at the top of his lungs if he is not getting the attention he wants! I am using a combo of Math-U-See and Singapore Math, along with FLL, this summer. But it doesn't feel like there is that much independent work going on--I feel like I have to do a fair amount of shepherding my eldest; I also am doing OPGTR and basic math for my 4 year old. Trying to figure out how to fit these things in and give each individualized attention while keeping the toddler occupied or quiet is proving to be much more diffucult than I had ever imagined! So, I'd love help from those of you who are experienced and used to juggling multiple children. How do you fit it all in, what are your tricks to keeping toddlers in particular occupied, what concessions/decisions/tradeoffs did you have to make in order to effectively school your different kids? Any and all nuggets of wisdom would be appreciated! I am feeling a little like I have bitten off way more than I will be able to chew! I do firmly believe God has called us to homeschool and that He will provide the necessary wisdom and patience that I need, but right now I could also use some practical suggestions to keep from tearing my hair out and to not grow weary of homeschooling before we even really begin! FYI, we'll be using MFW Adventures in the fall. I'm not sure how hands-on/independent it is, so it will be interesting to see how that works with my current situation. Thanks in advance for any help you could provide! Blessings, Helen **** Married to wonderfully gifted classical pianist, 13 yrs Blessed mom to three amazing DSs, 7, 4, and 2 New homeschooler hoping to stick with it past year 1!
