    Thank you both for the assistance! enbateau, your tips were so helpful. I was having her watch my lips very closely, but I will have her put her hand to her throat and use the mirror. I think those things make such a difference when you can't hear the sounds clearly. We've also been using her lined...

  • Emily,

    We started homeschooling our children when my middle daughter was in first grade. She seemed to be lagging behind in Kindergarten and Pre-First, even though she was very verbal and bright. We discovered that she needed eye therapy and after educational testing that she also has...

    Kindergarten Reading Help

    My youngest daughter just turned six September 30, and I started the Memoria Press Kindergarten program in mid-August. We're almost to the end of the First Start Reading Book A, and I'm not sure she's ready to move on. If we isolate the word families (am, at, an) and work with one word family at a...

    NLE Question

    I'm just finding out about the NLE. In our 2 1/2 years doing Memoria Press, I somehow missed this opportunity. Can someone share how to get the test? My daughter is currently in Third Form Latin - which level would be appropriate for her?

    Thank you!

    Sarah,

    Thank you for your articulately written thoughts about homeschooling, friendship, and the beauty of doing the hard things because they reap the best fruit in our lives, and it's what we are called to do. I know how hard it is to find the time to sit down and write a response on...

    Cathy,

    No derailment at all - part of the reason I posted was to see if I was skipping important parts. So I appreciate your breaking down your day and the time it takes to accomplish each subject. I will add the caveat that I sometimes have her redo assignments or add to them because...

    High School Help

    We have been homeschooling our daughters for the past three years, and our oldest is currently in 8th grade. This year, she is taking Algebra and Composition through MPOA and I do the rest of the coursework with her. Our issue this year has been that most days she is done with her work by 12:00 or...

    My niece is in 4th grade and her Mom reached out to me for help with multiplication. Helen has dyslexia and her class is specialized to deal with learning differences. However, she's really struggling with the pace this year and dreading school. She learned multiplication facts last year in school,...

  • Natural Treatments and Medication

    I wondered if any of you had experience and help with naturopathic remedies for ADHD. My Dad sent a video series by Dr. Mark Hyman called "Broken Brain" where he discusses using food, supplements, exercise, sleep, and homeopathic treatments to help those who have depression, ADD, anxiety...

  • Feeling Overwhelmed

    This is my first time posting on Simply Classical, but as I was perusing threads that fit with the new diagnosis we just received for our 8 year old daughter, I also found that others have experience with children who deal with anxiety, which is what has our oldest has battled. After years of trying...

    Re: Jr. Kindergarten Question

    Michele,

    I'm sorry you were sick and hope you're feeling much better! Thank you for your thorough response. I agree with you that a 2 year approach with Jr. K is a good path for us. She's enjoying our school time (and so am I), and I know...
