Made me laugh!

Just a little funny that I thought you ladies would enjoy. My son (9) was setting the table and was having problems getting the dishes out of the cupboard. All of sudden he says, "Chugarum!" to show his disgust. I start laughing as I realize someone has been listening to his little sister's read-alo...

Re: Teacher Manual for English 3: Beginning Wisely?

Grammar is not my strong suit so I like it to be able to verify any answers I'm not completely sure of and as keyjoh mentioned it has the oral review. Having the teacher's manual has been really good for us, but depending on your confidence in the material, you may not need it.

Re: Looking long-term we won't finish on time - should I wor

Raindrops, I don't get offended talking about diet. We have tried everything you listed and more. We have seen limited improvement, but improvement none the less. Thus, I don't disregard diet suggestions, but I think we have seen the most benefit that we will get from changing his diet. So thank you...

Looking long-term we won't finish on time - should I worry?

Hi Ladies, Just a little background. We decided very early on that our ds would not do well in a classroom. So we decided to homeschool him and are now homeschooling our 3 youngest (18 yo, almost 10 yo and 6 yo). We feel that we were correct in our decision. Even though he struggles at home, we feel...

Re: OT: Vitamins

My son has ADD. We tried medicines, but he has tics so the one type had to be stopped because they make tics worse and the second type gave him an upset stomach. This was too bad since the meds seem to really help him in other ways. We had and continue to eliminated as many processed foods and food ...

Re: Combining timelines from one year to the next

We began one last year with Bigger. We took the timeline from Beyond and put it on there as well. I hope to continue to add to it every year. So far it has been a lot of fun to see overlaps. Hopefully it will be useful as well as a nice keepsake. We got a blank timeline book from Miller Pads and Pap...

Re: Question about LHFHG

My 9 yo has high expectations for his 5 yo sister too. She is out of the ripping stage, but she does know how to push his buttons. :D

Enjoy making you timeline. Those sentence strips sound like a great idea. You'll have to post a picture when you are done with it!

Re: Question about LHFHG

You can create the timeline if you want, but it is not necessary for Little Hearts. Over the years, if the kids have wanted to do the projects (not in the teacher manual), we go ahead and make them. Just depends on how much time we have. If there are questions at the end of the chapter or section we...

Re: Any HODies going to the Mache Conf. in St. Paul next wee

I'll be there!

Tammy, I'll be at the Special Needs class on Thursday, also. I'll write my username on my nametag as well. It would be fun to run into each other!

It will be fun to see Julie and Carrie again and meet Mike.

Re: Carrie and Mike, can we visit?

What a fun trip! Hope you get to stop and see Mike and Carrie! If you go through Artesian, SD wave at the high school! That's where my mom graduated. They lived on a farm near there. If you have a stop in Sioux Falls, stop and see the Falls. It's pretty cool. Especially, since they have added the ob...

Re: Leap Day!

Hope you are having a fun day.

No snow day here. We did start school '2 hours late' in order to shovel the sludge (snow, ice, water) off the driveway :D The kids were begging for a day off, but no go here. We want to be done early this year because we have a wedding this summer.
