Re: Exploring Countries and Cultures -- Share Your Experienc

ECC was our first stop with MFW. Up until then, I kept trying different options but nothing ever felt right. Finally, we found MFW. The geography game quickly became a favorite with our family. The Bible integration and seeing other cultures and countries in our studies had a huge impact on how we s...

Re: parent/teacher conferences with high schoolers

What seems to have helped my son most this year in AHL is to write a short synopsis of what he has read. He does that for the books that do not have questions such as Unwrapping the Pharaohs. For Bible or Notgrass, we go through the questions together. We started meeting at the end of the day every ...

Re: How or do your husbands help with school?

As far as school, he is my ear to bounce ideas off of. He pretty much lets me pick curriculum, outside activities, etc. But he sees himself as mostly a provider (making sure we can afford for me to stay home) rather than implementer. He will talk to the kids if we have discipline issues, and does h...

Re: LOVING CtG!

I will admit, I *almost* let the classical music studies slide. I'm so glad I didn't. Vivaldi is playing again, I adore The Four Seasons, and I play it randomly throughout the days. I'm looking forward to next week where the kids sketch while listening. Just yesterday, my children said that they LO...

Re: Taking Old Test. Challenge

I agree with Vicki that I don't think you need your own book. I try to follow the schedule of reading just so I can aid in discussions.

Re: Anyone going to run 3 programs at once?

I'm only running 2 but we started AHL last week and my son is pretty much headed for independence (hopefully :)) this week. We are starting CTG with the youngest 2 this week. With the majority of the planning done, it does make it easier! Hope I can come back here at the end of next week and make th...

Re: Quick & Easy Lunch Ideas

I think I will make this a part of school and let my children plan the menu and shopping list with supervision, of course! We each could take a week and have a month done.

hmmmm....now when to incorporate it - I'm thinking on Saturday planning day.
