I want to buy Handbook of Nature Study from Amazon and need to spend 8.78 to qualify for super saver shipping. Any suggestions????? Anything cheap that you bought there recently for school? Thanks Ann-Marie
Quote: But just when I start to relax, I begin to realize that there is a whole world of homeschooling paths out there, each with its own language. And everyone seems to speak it fluently! I almost feel like the joke is on me... to keep me in the dark about the secret code of homeschooling. I am three years in and sometimes I still feel like I don't speak the language Just relax and follow your instinct. That is what I did. I was pg, very pg...

My son is not really all that into math and I cannot really blame him. Last year we used his MCP workbook and it was boring as can be.

My 7yo son really does not enjoy writing and especially anything in complete sentences or paragraphs. I got him a fun journal to work on this year, but he is really keeping it short and sweet. I am trying to have him write a little something each week about whatever we are working on for Language Arts, but today he just was not happy at all about it. His writing is very good, with the exception that at times he does confuse his d with a b and gets frustrated having to...
Barbara Loe Fisher Rocks! I would not treat it any differently than any other type of flu, which I do not get alarmed about. Just keep those hands clean and washed, practice good hygiene and get good rest and healthy food
