Re: 1st year homeschooling, struggling a bit with high schoo

My daughter is doing US 1 this year also. She is a junior and is also doing MFW for Am Lit, as well as the Biblical Worldview class. With the 3 of those together plus Chemistry, math, and some electives, I think that is a full load. She tends to be a slower, methodical worker, so that might be diffe...

Re: ECC book basket q

Also chiming in on the library books for Book Basket. I also request the titles online a few weeks in advance, then go pick them up when they send the email saying they are ready. A couple of times, I got "caught" without the right book when I needed it, especially for the read-aloud biographies. I ...

Re: higschool testimonials

I am posting even later than the last reply--I have not been on here in awhile either. I want to say that this is our 2nd year with MFW and our 2nd year homeschooling, after having my children in an academically strong Christian school for many years. We had various reasons for making a transition t...

Re: Physical Science 8th Grade Question

Just saw your post--haven't been on the boards for awhile! My ds just took Apologia Phys Sci last year in 8th grade. He is a good math student, though, who was taking Alg 1 at the same time. There is some math and formulas to do in that course, but he was able to figure it out just fine. He was allo...

Re: If you weren't going to use the English in MFW high scho

Thanks for these replies. My dd will be doing US1 this year, and she may take an English Comp class at our local Jr college this spring, so I might be trying to do the same thing. I'm still planning to have her do the writing/lit portions of MFW in the 1st semester. Even though we haven't done thing...

Re: Question about Apologia Chemistry

Thanks, Julie! I've thought the same thing about Chem being hard! He is a good math student, but it's still a lot to figure out. I was hoping his sis could maybe help him some if necessary. I like your idea about Plan B in mind. I already have the Apologia Biology book and could probably switch him ...

Re: Doubts about ECC

I did ECC last year with a 5th grader. I also wanted him to have improvement in writing. (I might add that he is a very reluctant writer!) In addition to the country report, journaling, nature notebook, etc, I added in BJU English 5, b/c that was an English I have taught many times, and am familiar ...

Re: Read-alouds & Crying

Wow! We finished reading Nate Saint's story for ECC on Friday. Yes, I went through about 5 tissues before we were done! ;( It was so inspiring and moving, though. I have read several of Elizabeth Elliott's books and was familiar with the story, but hearing it again from the perspective of Nate Saint...

Re: Read-alouds & Crying

We are doing ECC and I cry on every read-aloud also!
You are not alone on this--they are just so moving! It is amazing to see how God works in people's lives.

Re: WHL Research Paper

Thank you, Julie and Crystal, for your encouragement! That does really help. Crystal, I like your idea for breaking down the writing and am going to suggest that. Julie, my dd is also including some personal interviews, which are great additions to her research, but did require a different timetable...
