ds's narration of the prodigal son

So, DS #5 is doing LHFHG. Today he was supposed to narrate the prodigal son story. Mom: "So, tell me about the story we just read." Greyson: "well, this guy wants money, so he takes his dad to the credit union and says, dad! give me your money! so the dad gets him a credit card with all his money. T...

Re: Working while Homeschooling

I work at homeschool. :) I leave at 1:00 and we are usually done before then. We are using LHTH, LHFHG, and Bigger. Now, we don't eat lunch until I'm leaving for work-my oldest will make lunch and feed the rest while I get ready and go to work. I am scheduled for 2 10 hour days, but I end up working...

Re: Anyone Familiar w/ "Adventures in Odyssey"?

I also found a lot of great podcasts that we listen to. They aren't all specifically Christian, but they are classic stories and poems, some original stories, etc. Just go to podcasts on your itunes and search for children's stories. :-) We like Odyssey in our house. :-) We also like a lot of the ol...

Re: Beverly Cleary

The wonderful part of HOD is that you don't have to agree with me on our literature selections, as we often give you great choices and then leave the deciding up to you. Each family is so different, which means a curriculum needs to be able to be customized to meet varying needs (especially in the ...

Re: Beverly Cleary

That's why I like DITHOR so much-you can use whatever book is right for YOUR family!! :-) We have read a lot of Beverly Clearly's books in our house, so I'm on the "we like them" end of the spectrum. :-) As for the book packs, I know that Carrie is incredibly discerning when it comes to choosing tho...

Re: What records does your state require for homeschooling?

in Iowa we have 3 (technically 4) options. They sound difficult, but they are really not! Every year we file a "competent private instruction" paper that is provided by the state. The first time I send it in for a child I have to include their immunization records or the exemption form. New legislat...

Re: Dictation question

I have a index card file box and write my dd's on index cards. That way she can mark any mistakes on the key (index card) and re-study it the next day. Then she can check it off when she's completed it correctly and move on to the next one. The directions Carrie included mention marking the key and...

Re: SO..Who else here is teaching a special needs child?

I don't have a special needs child, but I wanted to chime in on this thread and tell the mamas who do how much I respect and honor the difficulties they face. I can't say "I know how you feel" because I don't-but I can say, "Let me walk beside you and help hold you up!" I believe God selected parent...

Re: 7th and 8th graders

My 7th grader is doing Bigger with the extensions. He is doing math from CLE, and language arts from the Queen's workbook, but otherwise he does it was written. :-) It's probably a bit lower then his actual abilities; however, he's my "challenging student" so anything he does is an improvement over ...
