Sometimes you can find the index binders at Wal-mart along with refillable index card packs. When Walmart is out, I go to an office supply store like Staples or Officemax and can find them there. You can reuse these year to year and they don't take much room to store.

We use an index card BINDER. It's small and not bulky. I have my kids draw a picture "clue" on the front of the card and then write the word and definition on the back. Then we flip through and review. Our kids take turns with their binders and enjoy quizzing each other. The most fun is the drawing/...

I know if they were in school they'd be expected to read it all themselves. In college they will be assigne a TON of reading in their classes. Don't I need to get them accustomed to reading on their own? Not saying I'd never read aloud, but they'd be responsible for their text/spine reading. I don't...

Yeah, I'm very conservative and that's why we've held off on studying ancient history. I'm hoping HOD can make it a God centered study. Another question for HOD Preparing...do you read CHOW aloud or get a copy for each child to read? Just wondering. We've always had the kids take turns reading it al...

Our kids place pretty much into Preparing. It covers world history using a spine I really think the kids will enjoy. Still, I'm ...

It doesn't clear me of MS, but it does rule out tumors and the like. I'll be going to a neurologist for more testing and have more MRIs in the future to check for changes. I think an allergist is a great idea! I might go that route too. I'm just having all sorts of strange issues that come and go. S...
