Re: Speeding Through Kindergarten

I am so glad I saw this post today. I have been having similar thoughts about K this year for my 6 year old dd. She keeps saying how easy it is and loves doing school. We are easily doing a weeks worth of school in 3 days including the activities and projects. She is very concerned with how she meas...

Re: If you had to pick and choose. Kindergarten

I was in this same position and I bought the Dino book, and the Cuisinaire Rods book (we already had the rods). I plan on purchasing the Ant Hill and butterfly garden later.

First official day of Kindergarten today!

Technically we started yesterday, but only partially. We are easing into it. Yesterday was a ton of fun though. My 13 y/o dd took her two little sisters upstairs and prepared a fashion show of school outfits for me while I put the finishing touches on the school room and set out there activities. Af...

Posted: Sun Jul 27, 2008 9:36 am My dd tested at 3B a year ago (she was going into 5th grade at the time) and although I felt like she knew much of what was going to be in 3b I still went ahead and started her there. For us that was the right thing to do. Although the math was easy for her, and the...

I read Bruchko out loud to Paige last year (5th grade). She was totally engrossed the whole time although I had to stop frequently to explain some of the things that took place. Great book.

TA-DA!!!!! I became quite convicted that, by golly, I should at least try and maybe learn something new along the way:-) I came home with my white index cards, enlisted my husbands help, and together we figured it out. Yay!! I will say though that it took me a lot longer than 20 minutes to figure it...

Posted: Sat Jan 05, 2008 12:56 pm Just thought I'd provide another perspective. When I started last summer I wanted to get an encyclopedia set and thought we couldn't be successful without one, but I never got around to purchasing a set mainly because I didn't know where we would keep it. We haven'...
