I don't know why we ever left

Posted: Fri Aug 08, 2008 5:19 pm My dd did MFW K and 1. We loved it! She was working so quickly through it though, we missed many of the fun activities. She loved doing school and regularly wanted more and more. With that I thought that maybe it wasn't academically enough for her. So the next year ...

I'd look more into sensory, giftedness, and auditory processing issues. Just the fact that she is a proficient reader suggests something other than ADHD according to most docs, although I wouldn't rule it out. We did the allergy testing and limit sugar and omitted caffeine. We don't snack on junk an...

SP - Ideas for Step 3

I was hoping to not have to purchase the cards for $30. When I look in the back of the spelling power TM for ...

My dd has writing issues as well. For our nature notebook we skip most of the writing. If she wants to draw or write, that's fine. We save the writing practice for other areas. What we've done to maintain a notebook though is make leaf rubbings and also take a camera with us to take pics. I take the...

Re: Placement test showing borderline levels

I've gone to level B as well, but picked out some of the groups that C doesn't cover...Group 13,14,15, Review 3, Gr. 18, 19. Then on to level C. After looking at the level B lists, I didn't see her missing more than one word per group for many of them. All of the words I felt she might miss were inc...
