Re: What do you use with Singapore math?

Re: Just had to share - ECC blessings years later

What an awesome DD, you have!! My own dd has been asking to do that as well as the Christmas shoebox ministry and we haven't even used ECC yet, just Adventures.

Hot diggity dog!!! My DS just gave the best narration

Hot diggity dog!!! My DS just gave the best narration... he's ever given. It was so good I had to give him a treat afterward. :-) That's awesome! I've been thinking about narration lately, and know that it's not a part of our day like it should be. Do you use it for every history, science, and langu...

Last week Monday was a holiday, then my dd got sick so we only accomplished two days of lessons, more or less. What should I do? Make up the work on Monday an...

ADV Science - Did you feel there was enough?

I am just starting Adventures, and as I am looking through the lesson book, often it seems to be missing Science. My children love Science and Experiments.
