Why is the Science in MtMM not Credit worthy for HS?

The Physical Science we are doing in Rev to Rev is wonderful, and according to the curriculum website, it IS high school credit worthy (and we are definitely counting it). So, I am just wondering what makes the science from MtMM NOT credit worthy. Is there anything I can do to beef it up? I would lo...

Re: Drawing in Preparing - Encouragement

My ds is almost 9 and today he drew Moses. He is always very critical in his own work, but I can see improvement. We won't give up! Even if the drawings aren't perfect, they will be sweet treasures to look back on one day. Also, unless he just slops one down or hurries through it, I never have him d...

He is writing so much this year and doing such a great job. I wish I could share all of them with you! I will share just a few fun things we did this wee...

We have such a beautiful portfolio of paintings from our time with CTC 2 years ago. Can't wait to do it again next year with my youngest! Very lovely paintings you ladies did! :)

Re: Preparing-Week 4 Independent History Project?

Ours looked almost IDENTICAL to what Patty did above. We used a the air dry clay and the glad container (with a blue lid) too. :)

Isn't 13 year old boy brain the best!? :( Bryce struggles with that too! Many times, I will go back and look at his week's notebooking pages only to find that he has skipped a whole box!

We completed R&S English 2 (last year when he was in "3rd grade") suring Bigger Hearts, but on his standardized test at the end of last year, he scorec lower English/Gram...

M2MM for 9th grade...someone please direct me...

I have searched and am having no luck finding a recent thread on what needs to be done to make M2MM high school credit worthy. If someone could kindly point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it!

Re: Ladies, I need prayer!

Thank you Tina. I agree - some of the best were once some of the worst. Look at Saul/Paul! We are praying and trusting God's will. I so greatly appreciate the prayers and words of support from all of you. I am not able to post here like I once was, but anytime I feel the need for Christian support a...

Re: Long days...will they get shorter?

Sounds like you have a lot of things working against you time-wise. Do you have a schedule set for when each child completes each subject? If not, while running 3 guides, you need one. If you have an independent learner, then schedule the time you work with the ones that need you most during the tim...

Re: Carrie - Writing Curriculum Question...

I do know that write shop is probably the most teacher intensive subject I teach each day - and this even includes Latin and all of the history reading/activities and Science from Preparing. Maybe that is why it doesn't work well with HOD. It is a solid program, from what I am finding, but takes a l...
