  1. Working on curriculum

    by , 08-26-2015 at 11:30 AM
    The youngest is easy. Workbooks. You can always find lots of workbooks for 5th grade and below, easy. The oldest--not so much. 8th Grade material is not always so easy to find. And there is the boredom factor. Favorite book series right now---anything by Erin Hunter.

    So I found the following textbooks lying around at various thrift stores.
    1. Write From the Start, which appears to be a college workbook for English and Writing for a local community college.
    2. Glencoe: ...

  2. 3 weeks in to homeschooling the stubborn tech addicted 5 year old

    by , 08-21-2015 at 06:17 AM
    We started homeschooling this year, after a less than enthusiastic time was had by our only child in Pre-k. Not really surprising as he's been on a night schedule with us his whole life, and school started at 7:45am. Not a pleasant time to be awake when you are used to bed time not being til 3am. And no matter how many times ppl told us it would get better, it never did. He hated all 10 months of it. He hated the repetition, the being up at 7am, the sheer lack of control he had, the groups, the ...

  3. A homeschool mom that hates to read?

    Is that even possible? The answer is yes you have just met a homeschool mom that hates to reading. I just got my sons US history book and I'm dragging myself through it. Now it's actually like a regular book. It's the young people's guide to American history. The history of us was to text look like. So after the first chapter we got rid of it. I'm hoping that this book will catch his interest since it aligns with his beliefs. He's not here this week so I started reading it and I was all happy that ...

  4. Co op with little fan fair

    by , 08-13-2015 at 12:25 AM
    My son and husband stayed up all night playing a role playing game. So we let miguel sleep while we took our bus adventure to the co op sign up. We're without a car and have not taken a bus in 10 yrs. We got there with one transfer, no problem. The teachers seemed nice and all 4 classes and regestation only cost me a little over $100. Miguel is now entering 9th grade. That is crazy! He's currently still finishing up 8th grade work but hopefully by the time the co op starts the 24th he'll be almost ...

  5. Hypo manic lesson plans

    by , 08-09-2015 at 11:43 PM
    If you ever met anyone that is in a hypomania they look like a chicken with its head cut off. I took a nap today which is a feat but I just spent two hours I'm planning lessons but I got so frustrated I erase them. 29 middle cells describing each subject, each day, gone . It's okay because I have to do the laundry and shower because tomorrow we go to coop. This will be the first time that people meet me and I'm like this. Stressed out, hyper, outgoing, the little boundaries great first impression, ...
