  1. Hello from Denver, I am new to forums, as well as homeschooling. I guess my biggest question is where do I start?? My twins are in 3rd grade right now in a charter school. Although they made the age cut off by days, I'm looking to start them with 2nd grade curriculum when we begin homeschooling. I am planning to begin in a couple of weeks after I give the school the 14 day notice required by Colorado state law. I am trying to gather materials and organize in the meantime. Thus far I have only read Susan and Jessie's 4th edition of the WTM. I want to pick up some of their other books for parents. I've decided we will try going year round, with breaks for any holidays, family trips, and any other time we just need a break. I will be ordering a lot of WTM materials, and have already purchased their math curriculum and a lot of math manipulatives. They will be doing French with a (Native) tutor on Fridays, as well as speaking it daily with their father (not Native, but fluent). Does anyone have any advice for homeschooling twins, with extra younger littles around? My twins learn very different. One is better with language fluency and picks up math easier. The other struggles with being really really slow at tasks, with anxiety, with math and reading fluency, and generally does not love school right now- aside from art. We are in the process of getting her tested at her school. They don't seem to be finding any problems however (no dyslexia, no adhd, no processing problems as of yet) so she may just be a perfectionist with some pieces missing in her math and reading. I'm hoping to go back and take time on these with her, even beginning with kindergarten and first grade math, and whizzing through them with her to build her confidence and help it be more fun for her. Other questions: Is there anything else I am missing that I need to do legally before we begin? They are immunized, and I plan to track our hours and subjects. What things do you all do to save money? I can't seem to find any helps with funding for school materials in the state of Colorado. What tips are there for homeschooling families? What do you tell your children to help them like the idea of homeschooling? We haven't told them yet. I think they will be both excited, and not happy about leaving their friends and the whole school scene altogether. What might I not be considering that you think I might need to be aware of as we begin? If there is a different forum that is more geared towards my questions, please direct me. Thank you for any help! Alisa
  2. Hey Ho, Parents of Twin Preschoolers! I have been slaving away on planning out lessons for my oldest son's upcoming homeschool year. With all my planning for his schooling, however, I do not want to neglect my bright and very active 4 year old twins. I know that if I don't plan out at least some basic lesson goals and plans for my twins, very little pro-active learning will take place with them this year. I decided to start with writing down my goals for this year, and then put together a very simple daily/weekly lesson plan for my twins. I was wondering if anyone else has any ideas to share about their plans for their preschool kiddos (twins). Does anyone have a daily/weekly plan? We will be attending Classical Conversations again this year. Last year, my twins simply went to the nursery. This year, I decided to put them in a class (simply because it seemed the better alternative to spending 3 - 4 hours in the nursery). If you're curious, here's the post I just wrote about my goals for my 4 year olds twins: Preschool Goals for 4 Year Old Twins Thanks! Leslie
  3. DD10 an DS10 are twins. I am wondering what the level of knowledge regarding boy-girl twins is. Please answer the poll with your first reaction and without googling. Thanks for indulging me!
  4. There is a possibility that I am currently preggo with twins. I am supposed to have an ultrasound in a couple weeks to find out for sure. So even though I don't know for sure yet, I would like to start thinking about what it means to be pregnant with twins. (and to be honest, i am very interested in the subject for its own sake, even if it turns out that it's not twins) How is different from a singleton pregnancy? I know that typically twins are classed as high risk, but I'd like to know why? I am a natural childbirth-er and would like to do that again. I did not want an early ultrasound, and am even still slightly tempted to refuse this one, but I know I would probably catch heck for that from my midwife (she is very not crunchy and is not cool about skipping routine procedures). So if those of you who have had twins could please talk to me about what it means during pregnancy - especially with regards to natural/unnecessary-intervention-free birth I would really appreciate it. Thank you!! ETA: I forgot to mention that while I've given birth naturally for my previous three births, they were all in a hospital and as much as I would LOVE to have a home birth, it's just not an option right now for various reasons, so I will be dealing with hospitals and doctors and their policies.
  5. The family has 2 older children (but still young enough were they have all the clothes). The twins are male and the older siblings are male. The couple are young and still building up, so I'm looking for something really helpful. They are not registered anywhere (that I know) and the invitation doesn't mention gifts..but of course I want to support them and bring something. I'm looking for good btdt stuff. Mom's of twins...what was really helpful, especially if you had older kids and a bunch of baby stuff already?
  6. Although I've been around for many years I don't post here too often anymore! I kinda miss the old boards! I just gave birth to twins and was wondering if any one here homeschooled while having newborn twins and what your advice is. No offense meant to anyone but doing it with one new baby is simply not the same! Even one new baby and a toddler is different. Just looking for tips and tricks...stories of how you survived the first 6 months of schooling with twins. thanks! PS typing with one finger takes a long time!:banghead:
  7. Hi...I'm new here and need a little help with something. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!Ok, a little background here....I homeschool my 5 and 6 year old. I also have a set of 3 year-old twin boys. One does not talk(only 3 words, dada, mama, and uh-oh) and the other twin talks, but nasaled and not clear. The one that does not talk was born with HLHS(David), a serious heart condition and spent most of his time in the hospital. The other one, Darin, is fine healthwise, but delayed in his speech. They both seem very intelligent and understand everything I say. I will be starting to homeschool them this fall. Both of them clearly need speech therapy. David has already had speech, OT, PT, and knows basic sign language. He had that through early intervention in SC, where we were stationed last.(my husband's in the Navy and we move every two years.)Now we are in Massachusetts and I am trying to find a speech therapist who will work with them. I've checked with my insurance, I've talked to HSLDA(I've ordered Straight Talk from them), I HAD a speech therapist for a couple of sessions and she quit on me saying my kids needed more help than she can offer, I've gotten them evaluated at the public school, but have decided I don't want to go through the public school system at all. What can I do(without going through the public school system) to help my twins with their speech issues? What are all my options? What other resources have I overlooked? And what do I need to do as a homeschooling mom to cover myself(like keeping track of progress?) I know this was lengthy..sorry. Thanks for reading this! Danielle
