US Geography - misleading answer
comments: 2 | views: 856 | last updated: 8/21/2017
Lesson 1, Activity 1, Option 1, #13 - the question is, "A South American country" and the answer you list is, "Columbia, SC." Columbia isn't a South American country; Colombia is. The spelling is different.
How do you line up the lessons?

Hi all, new homeschooling mama here! I am doing a distance learning program through my charter school, and they provide the curriculum. They have provided me first with concept #3 in both LA & SS/Science. My question is this. With the Witch of Bl . . .

I am thinking of just purchasing the Social Studies and Language Arts curriculum, and not the science for my 9-11 level and 11-13 level children. We have been using a science curriculum that we are quite pleased with and is appropriate to use for bot . . .

I looked in the IdeaShare section and couldn't find anything about the Activity on Reflection and Absorption. One question I have is, is there anywhere where it shows a sample of this lab? We could not make sense of these instructions, looking in t . . .
Colonization and revolution -too dry :(

This unit ended up as the first totally disappointing one for us. Most of it is very dry and I feel that there are too many details and events covered for this age group. While the text selected is a good one, asking the kids to read an entire chapte . . .

Hi there, I bought the Living Seas Unit for an older child a couple of years ago. Now, I am needing to reorder the curriculum, but the book is different. Does that mean I need the new curriculum as well? What is different between the books? . . .

I am new to homeschooling and am very frustrated. I have a child in 7-9 and 9-11. They both have dyslexia and ADD. I know that presents challenges. I was a Special Education teacher and thought I could do this. Handwriting is especially time con . . .
