Hopefully I'll learn even more stuff to help make my blog useful to y'all, and get a few woman missionaries sponsored too :-) Another pai...

Re: Written narration adaptation due to short term memory is

I love this reminder, I have done this in the past, and I think I'm ready to retry this for my eldest. She did a narration today that was just the opposite of what I asked for, detailed instead of overview. I think a one word note taking is a great Idea. It helps trigger memory and helps it come bac...

Re: Question about One Small Square: Seashore

Fo us in most of the small square books we just read them. We didn't make a square unless we were camping near that environment. I don't want to meet the insects in small Square Arctic... But I did drag along the small square book to the sea shore when we went (1 week before starting school) so when...

Re: Confused about DITHR. Just a quick question.

Hello, I have been reading through the manual and getting prepared. My question is are we supposed to do the same lessons and use the same student book pages 2 years in a row but just use the different level books? For example, this year we are using the level 2 books with the 2/3 student guide. Ne...

CTC Unit 11 watercolor mishaps and marvels..

As far as I can tell from the instructions on unit 11 day 2 and 3 we are making 2 different fractured sky paintings. If I'm reading this right we do not re use day ones painting. Are my assumptions correct before I blog about it to the world? I do have a horrible head cold so I know I'm not clicking...

Re: OT: Vitamins

We avoid manganese so I don't do the Multi vitamin thing.
She takes magnesium, as well as trace mineral drops (bio available) in her morning drink.
Magnesium is such a stress reducer if we don't give it I see it.

Re: need HELP with the attitude sin

For a long time I really felt My eldest (Sweet Potato) was living In sin and rebellion. Being mean to me seemed to be her hobby, I really struggled. I'd go over stuff with her and she would know it one day and fail the next. Played the victim constantly, Helpless in math, manipulative, annoying. She...

Re: Struggling with CTC Notebook pages

I'm taking a much more hands off approach to the note-booking. Yes I want the note-booking pages to be "beautiful" but since Sweet Potato already struggles with finishing in a timely manner, I accept what she can do without pushing to hard. If I made my Child do the work then recopy I'd have her in ...
