Re: High School Time Savers? 11 grader bogged down

Thanks so much for the ideas, I think I will use a couple of these ideas. She is doing good with it I am just concerned with how many hours it takes to complete it all. Good to know it is normally the hardest year. My 11th grade year was the hardest but only because I took extra credits at the local...

Re: Dyslexic Learner headed into 1st Grade

What is working for the older kids in math won't work for my 6 yr old, because they don't produce a first grade math. The older kids use Teaching Textbooks, it helps them learn because the computer program reads the problems to them which is super helpful for me not having to read through and help w...

Re: Dyslexic Learner headed into 1st Grade

That was what I was wondering, how other dyslexic children do with the phonics progression of First grade. So, if I let him tag along with what we are learning in Creation to Greeks on anything that is simple enough, and add in a basic math and the Barton Reading that should be fine for his 1st grad...

Re: Adventures in My Father's World - Share Your Experiences

Re: Teaching Multi-Levels

Crystal: Thank you. It is good to know I can split it up a little. I am hoping to use small breaks for the older kids to go do chores or get a snack while I work with the youngest. I didn't want to set aside over an hour with just one child while nothing else was getting done. I had thought about st...

Re: How do you keep up on school and house work??

Great suggestions ladies! When I am feeling like you are, I start up the quiet time for about an hour every afternoon. I just need that down time, there are times where we don't need it every day but I like the option. Then I made myself some check off sheets very similar to the ones someone already...
