Well I asked mil for Rosetta Stone for my Christmas present so we're using Spanish for Latin America. It took me a long to decide b/c I'm also interested in Latin and Greek. Ds1 wants French, but I just decided to go with one and we can also add or switch later. Rosetta Stone homeschool is great for us b/c it allows up to 5 users, so all 4 of us can use it, and it tracks progress and repeats as necessary, and it records your speech. Ds1 (who is disappointed that it's not French
- whatever, don't know where that comes from. He heard it spoke somewhere and liked the way it sounded and now likes to make a game of making English words sound like French. Also we play a family game of identifying languages everytime we get the chance.) Anyway, ds1 put on the headset and is pretending to be a pilot while repeating and recognizing Spanish sentences. I'm delighted he's having so much fun; I knew it would take something like that to interest him. So ds2 wants to copy him, of course.
Nemesis, I don't know about Lively Latin. Hmm... I'm interested in learning more... My kids love the Nature Journals, as well.
Mommabelle, I think it's great that you have a hs group that sets up curriculum. I would love something like that. Also, I need to check out the times tables suggestions you mentioned. That's exactly what I've been looking for. And yes, I would love
a copy of your weekly curriculum. I am so unstructured that it really hinders, I think. I need the detailed curriculum to help me along. Thanks!
Mommajb, what Latin did you use? Looks like SOTW is a big winner for history. I guess I need to pull mine back out and try again. I wonder if the CDs would make a difference. Perhaps I'll look for some online to go with our the first book we never finished.
Jooj, I know what you mean about the summer thing. Not being in school can be dangerous if I don't keep structure going.
Thanks for the hs help, moms. I know this isn't the right thread but I got overwhelmed over there looking at information, trying to decide where to post and doing it all with such limited online time. My apologies to the rest of you.
Kangamitroo, I love your location.
Alright, off to do more TKD kicks. I'm going to be sore tonight!
