Re: A rave about netflix

We don't have TV anymore. Only Netflix, Hulu (for mom) and DVD's. We LOVE Netflix. They have lots of documentaries for streaming. I was just watching one about Wal-Mart last night. My kids are younger, but they enjoy some of them too. My son loves the Walking With Dinosaurs series. (I think there ar...

MFW Grade Recommendations?

My recent question/thread brought to light a number of great reasons to have an oldest do ADV for second grade. I also understand why K & 1st have their own programs. Some of the responses though brought up a few more questions for me. I have prayed a lot the last three weeks about putting my oldes...

Re: The Great Dinosaur Mystery and the Bible

My son, who is 5, LOVES dinosaurs. He is in a collecting phase. He collects everything in our house with dinosaurs on it. He even has 3 pairs of PJ's in his collection. Ha, ha! I may need to get that book just so I can read it for more information for him. He has so many questions. I have What Reall...

Re: Cuisenaire Rods

I laminated all of the pages after taking them out of the book. I hole punched them and put them in their right order in a file. Surprisingly, my girls are not at all interested in the rods or the book! This is what I was thinking of doing first. Hmm...I'll have to think about it. I punched holes i...

Re: Day 1 = Good, Day 2 = Okay, Day 3 = almost disaster

Thanks Jen! That is a great reminder that they will get older and we will adapt as we have always had to do. I totally understand about your son!!! I have 4 boys and only 1 girl. (Hopefully, she will get a sister. Maybe twin sisters! LOL!) So far, 2 of the boys are only 7 months. But, the older 2 ar...

Re: Day 1 = Good, Day 2 = Okay, Day 3 = almost disaster

Thanks Ladies. That is what we will do. I need to relax about getting through it. I'd like to get through it by the end of the summer. I'd rather our school year start in the fall. But, it's okay if it doesn't. Plus, it's possible we will take the end of this school year plus next school year to com...

Re: Day 1 = Good, Day 2 = Okay, Day 3 = almost disaster

Thanks everyone for the encouraging words and ideas and especially the prayers. The whole day today ended up being "just one of those days." I'm glad it's over. ;) I'm definitely going to try some of the ideas you ladies mentioned. Tomorrow, we will do preschool stuff first for sure. Trish, funny yo...

Re: Student Materials for K

Thanks Melissa. I am actually doing something similar, but in a notebook. I got pocket dividers for each unit. I plan to put anything I come across in the pocket for that unit. I will keep the things we use repeatedly in the front. I also got a notebook for my son. I plan to have him keep his calend...

Re: Just curious

Trish, Seems like you have it worked out. It sounds like most things that go along with twins, double the blessings, double the fun and double the work. :-) And, I like not calling it "Bible Story." I think I'll steal that idea from you. ;) Lucy, thanks for chiming in. It's nice to know what the WMF...

Re: Introducing myself with a couple of questions

Thanks! That's a great idea, Crystal! I think I'm going to do that. :-) Getting back to starting a new program in the fall is my goal. Ideally, I would like to follow the public school schedule, but I know we don't have to. If we can make it happen, great. If not, oh well. And, like you said, it mig...
