  3. Toddler & Child
    Sometimes finding the right gift for your child can be hard. For parents of children diagnosed as intellectually gifted, it can be hard to find gifts that stimulate their unique brains while also entertaining them. Here are five gifts we think do a great job of both! 1. Code and Go Robot Mouse...
  4. Learning at School
    <p>Hi I need some help and insight.  I have a first grader who I from the bottom of my heart believe should be retained this year.  His dad agrees (we are divorced), his teacher agrees, he gets extra support in school now and it seems like his extra teachers agree (altho they cannot really...
  5. Learning at Home and Beyond
    <p>I tried for over a year now to teach my elementary school age children U.S. History with the simple use of historical literature but I'm finding that it's lacking and I'm slacking so I think I may need some sort of teacher's guide just so I can keep track of where we are in U.S. History and...

    <p>I was looking for some basic lab supplies and several people sent me to Home Science Tools.  Site was good, prices were reasonable … but they have a tab called "Science Curriculum" and all the suggested options support Biblical Creation Science.  </p> <p> </p> <p>I am not enthusiastic about...

    <p>Hello,</p> <p> </p> <p>Does anyone know of any website that mainly contains science experiment videos? Where I'm currently living, it's hard to find all the supplies we need for certain experiments, and so I would like to at least show my kids how experiments are done. Thanks!</p>

    There is a similar thread, but approximately 8 years old.<br> Has anyone got experience of both Sonlight and Ambleside?<br> I am using Core B of Sonlight for my 8-year old more secularly, but still like the look of Ambleside Online.

  11. Learning at Home and Beyond
    <p>Hi, I am thinking about using a literature course from Oak Meadow this next year.  I wouldn't have my dd enroll, but I was toying with the idea of buying their syllabus for the Intro to Literature & Composition course.  I would get the other books from the library (the ones I don't already...
  12. Learning at Home and Beyond
    <p>For a wide variety of reasons, I've decided to keep my son in public school through the rest of 6th grade, but I'm very likely to homeschool him next year (and very likely for 8th grade as well, though we'll re-evaluate each year.)</p> <p> </p> <p>Unschooling worked great for my daughter...

    <p>Hi All!</p> <p><br> I thought I would start a new thread aimed at providing direction and information to anyone who is thinking about purchasing Enki. I would have really benefited from a thread like this when I was trying to find out more about Enki and decide if it was right for my...

    <p>I am working on a project through a website called Chinavine and they have a self-guided art and culture program, which would be appropriate for older children. Here's the link if anyone is interested: <a href="http://chinavine.org/participate/eduvine/"...
  16. Learning at Home and Beyond
    <p>A lot of you may be familiar with her book, but I wasn't - I just saw this, and it's one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. It's not that it's all new - many of us toss around these ideas, but here's someone who got an idea and ran with it, carrying her son through what could have...
  17. Learning at Home and Beyond
    <p>Where do I start? Well, my boys are currently in grade 1 and Kindergarten. We are living in the province of Quebec, CA this year, but will likely be moving back home (Kansas) this summer.
