My ds was enrolled at West Virginia University this past year as a freshman. The "caretaker" of the freshman engineering students was a really good guy, led engineering orientations and classes, was available to help the students whenever, and has been doing it for around 40 years! So he has a new website that is chock-full of helpful-looking advice, special situations, study skills, time management, etc. I thought I'd post it here. It's secular but many topics will still apply, particularly if your student is considering a large university.

http://www.universitysurvival.com/

There are Christian books on this, probably dealing more with moral issues along with study skills, and Christian websites like the boundless site (although I'm not very familiar with it anymore). But FWIW . . . I know that any students making a transition from homeschool to a large university are going to probably have some stressful issues with which to deal.

As I was registering ds for his retake of the SAT, I see they now require you to upload a photo of the student (to specific requirements). You cannot register online without doing this. If you want to register by mail, the photo must be included in the envelope. I then found out the ACT is requiring this as well.

According to what I read, the admission ticket will have this photo on it and it must correspond to the way the student will appear on test day.

Supposedly it will prevent cheating. (There was a scandal a while back where bright students were being paid a LOT of money - as in $3500, to take the test posing as someone else.) I fail to see how this will help. You just upload the substitute's photo, right?

Anyway, thought this might help some here.

What would you expect from a student after completing a second year of foreign language study at a highschool level?

I am evaluating an online program offered by our library (Pronunciator) and considering whether it is "enough" to count toward highschool foreign language credit. It seems to offer a lot, but since I can't compare it to a traditional course I'm stumped to know if it's beefy enough.

I just saved over $200 on my son's homeschool curriculum. He has been using Chalk Dust math, which can top $400 a year for the new textbook, DVD's, and solutions manual. I looked up the ISBN numbers online (making sure they're the right editions) and ordered them all used from a book company, including the DVD's. So instead of paying $429 for them new, I paid $174 + shipping.

If anyone needs the ISBN numbers for Chalk Dust Trigonometry, I have them handy.

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Creating Transcripts for Your Unique Child: Help Your Homeschool Graduate Stand Out from the Crowd (Coffee Break Books) [Kindle Edition]
Lee Binz (Author)

Book Description
Publication Date: March 3, 2013
Homeschool High School Transcript Solutions for Every Situation!!

Turn Your Child’s Unique Circumstances to Advantage!

Although they stress a lot of parents out, transcripts are just a one-page overview of your child’s academic record. Any student who plans to go to college needs a transcript, and even students who don’t have college plans will benefit from having a record of their high school courses. A homeschool transcript can demonstrate your student’s strengths, depth, and individuality. It can combine all the wonderful educational experiences of high school into one centralized location on paper.

But how do you make a transcript if your child:
is really gifted and advanced? Who will believe all those A’s?
doesn’t have enough credits—or too many—to graduate?
earned a really bad grade in high school or took 5 years to graduate?
unschooled for most of high school and didn’t take any tests?
had some major medical/emotional issues that left gaps in their schooling?

˃˃˃ Here's Why You Need This Book:

Whether you homeschool traditionally or your homeschool is an oddball mix of traditional and eclectic, core subjects and delight directed learning, you will learn exactly how to capture all of those experiences on a transcript that colleges will love! If you faced challenges during homeschool because of some unique situation or experience, you’ll learn how to represent that on your transcript and explain it to the colleges.

“Creating Transcripts for Your Unique Child,” is the next ebook in the HomeScholar’s Coffee Break Books series. Designed especially for parents who don’t want to spend hours reading a 400-page book on homeschooling high school, this series combines Lee’s practical and friendly approach with detailed, but easy-to-digest information, perfect to read over a cup of coffee at your favorite coffee shop!

Never overwhelming, always accessible and manageable, each book in the series will give parents the tools they need to tackle the tasks of homeschooling high school, one warm sip at a time.

I thought I had math all figured out for this year, but then I came upon another on-line math program that looks interesting. I have used Aleks math in the past (aleks.com) and my son did well with it. The math I came upon today is CTCmath.com, an on-line math tutor. I'm not sure if CTC is meant to be a supplement or a complete math course. Does anyone have experience with either one of these, good or bad, and would mind sharing your thoughts?

Thank you!

In search of a new history curriculum for my 9th grader this year, I came across Truth Quest. Most of the reviews I read were very positive, so I decided to order it. We started last week, but I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around it. I know it is different from your typical history curriculum and maybe that's why I struggle with it. The portion I read to my ds seemed to be sort of dry and a little "over his head". It makes me wonder if it's just ME, as most every review I read had such wonderful things to say about it!

Is there anyone else who had a rough start with Truth Quest, but eventually was able to make it work? I really would like this to work for us, as I like the idea of using REAL books to study history and the Christian perspective.

Thank you!

I wrote a long post earlier but apparently I deleted it. Anyway, my dd is 16 and has been sick for the last year and a half. She hasn't been able to do much school work at all. We currently use Abeka and some of the subjects are fine but others are driving her crazy. She is in the healing process now after surgery and it may take some time but she is getting down because she wants to learn and finish high school. She plans to get married 1 to 2 years after she graduates. Literature is one of the areas that she does not like right now. How can I make it a little less stressful on her? Other subjects like history and science I thought I could read with her so she is not feeling so overwhelmed. She may or may not go to community college. She just wants to graduate so she can get married, raise chickens, goats, and an alpaca. She dreams of having a bakery someday. She is an excellent gardener and an excellent cook. She sews and quilts and volunteers on a "living history" farm. She spends a lot of time putting information in our church computer to help our pastor and to make the announcements for Sunday mornings. She taught Sunday school until 2 months ago, she helps me to lead younger girls in a small group, she keeps up on her own bible studies, and she writes sermons and occasionally preaches at our smaller service on Sunday nights. I read somewhere that different things could count towards English credit. Could any of the things I mentioned count for credit in any subject? Looking forward to your advice!

We are trying to find a chat-type site that homeschooling high schoolers use - one that is Christian, safe, and trustworthy like CHF is.

Dd is drawn to Facebook and twitter and places that we do not feel are safe or best for her to be a part of (past history with Facebook).

Any suggestions?

I got this off Challies.com and bought a few for my kindle even though I'm not homeschooling anymore. I think it's fascinating to look at classic literature through Christian eyes. Included also is a Bible history book.

How We Got the Bible by Rose Publishing ($0.99); Bonhoeffer Speaks Today by Mark Devine ($2.99). And in case you didn’t check in yesterday, here are yesterday’s deals: Leland Ryken’s Christian Guides to the Classics are $0.99 each: Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter; Homer’s The Oddysey; Milton’s Paradise Lost; Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

Hope this helps for you planning. Oh, these are kindle deals BTW.

We were blessed with the Dave Ramsey high school curriculum (Foundations in Personal Finance) last year. Our dd has completed the course. It is DVD's, book (written in to chapter 3, I think), and website access.

Since Dave blessed us with this, we would like to pass on the blessing to someone else that could use this curriculum. The only cost would be to pay the postage to send it to you.

If you would like it, please PM me. I am at work through the week, so may not see your PM until the weekend.

Remember Catie, my student who has lymphoma? I hadn't even met her yet when I asked you to pray for her--she was being transferred to my class for the new semester.

She told me today that it's been determined that she is a "fast responder", so her chemo regimen has been reduced from 4 months to 2 months! Very Happy

Thanks for all your prayers for her. Praise God! And please continue to pray...she's not out of the woods yet by any means.

...are at Messiah College in PA, as we speak.

Ds has been at the cc college, living at home. The other two went off to Bible school; he didn't want to go, which was fine with us.

Suddenly, he has decided that he's headed to Christian college, which shocked us all.

He played with the men's bb team today, dh walked a track with the very nice bb coach, ds is staying with some students and attending class tomorrow. He's also been chatting with some guidance type people about transfering and all of that.

Pray for wisdom for him, if you think of it.

does not have it in writing, but was verbally offered a full-time job today. There are some complications with some other freelance relationships that he has. The offer, if it comes through is *very* generous and might mean that he could completely pay of his loan this year. Education may be attached, as well.

Please pray for clear direction for him, if you think of it...

It's that time of year when the success and failure of children is becoming apparent and parents are looking for solutions. Many of them are looking at home schooling as an option.

Please pray for ears to hear as God calls some families to home schooling.

Yes, I have a friend in this situation, but it occurred to me that I should be praying a little bigger than just this one family.

Hi all,
I have a job interview on Wednesday morning for a choral music position at the Christian high school I graduated from. It's a part-time gig, and it's been advertised as K-12, and I'm going in asking them to split it and hire me just for 6-12, and hire someone else for K-5.

I'm feeling ambivalent about going to work outside the home, especially for what will probably be a fairly small salary. But it may also provide some tuition benefits for my kids, which we'll need. (We are planning to send kids to school next year, because I need a break, what with being the sole breadwinner and all.) And I am kind of excited about the possibilities of directing choirs again.

Anyway, would you please pray that God would give clear leading to both me and the school administrators? I really don't want to take a job if it's not His leading.

Thanks,
Laura

UPDATE: I got the job! They were willing to split the K-12, so I'll be directing the middle school and high school choirs. I am seeing this as God's leading, because there certainly were opportunities for Him to close the door, and He blew the door open. I'm going to school today to meet with a group of my future students--pray for wisdom for me as I talk with them--they've been through a lot of upheaval, with a string of very short-term teachers in the last 5 years. I'm looking forward to getting started! Thanks for all the prayers!

Hi, gals,
My shoulder injury has not gotten better in the last month of physical therapy. In fact, I've LOST range of motion, and my pain level has increased. And something has changed in the last 3 days: I've had several flashes of pain that were so bad I almost passed out, and the sitting-at-rest pain level is significantly greater.

I'm back to my doctor on Monday morning, and I think he'll probably refer me to an orthopedic surgeon. My p.t. gal said she thought it was time for an MRI.

So, I need prayer. First, for pain relief/control. It's bad--and it's keeping me from sleeping. Second, for healing of the injury. And third, for financial provision--we have a very high insurance deductible, so all of this, so far, is coming out of our pocket. The timing is bad, too, because we're about to reach the beginning of the next insurance year, so we'll have to start on the deductible again. Kirk is in seminary f.t., and I am the breadwinner right now. All that to say, I'm stressed about how this injury is going to impact our financial situation, and possibly Kirk's ability to stay at full-time status if he were to need to find a job.

Thanks for your prayers, ladies--I so appreciate you faithful pray-ers.

Laura

UPDATE: I went back to my g.p. on Monday, and he referred me to an orthopedic surgeon, who, miraculously, had an appointment open yesterday. So I saw him, and he thinks it's adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) with a possible partial tear of the rotator cuff. He gave me a steroid injection and more p.t. I go back to see him in 3 weeks, and if the injection is not helping at that point, it'll be an MRI and either a sedated joint manipulation or surgery. Thanks for the prayers--keep them up--I'm still hurting a lot!

My sister saw an ambulance and police car at my single mom friend's house the other night. By the time I got there, no one was home other than the dog. The last time my friend was hospitalized, the teen daughter was able to drive her, but then could not sign herself out of the hospital because she was not an adult, but I missed the call. This time, I drove to the hospital but could not find them.

Meanwhile: friend had recently given up her landline, and I had lost her cell phone number. I've been dogging her house, trying to connect. Finally, today, I realized that the dog was now gone. I went to a mutual friend's house, who had not heard from her, called her church, etc. Finally, my friend in local town government finally was able to dig up her number.

Phew. She's fine. Her daughter had been sick with what they thought was meningitis earlier in the week. The hospital that I went to sent her home, but her symptoms got worse. The mom had to call the ambulance to take her to the bigger city hospital.

Wow...I'm sad that the dd is sick, but am so relieved. They are in another part of the state, staying with extended relatives for now.

Our forecast is in the triple digits until next week. My youngest plays softball and I hope they will cancel until cooler weather comes. I don't like heat either, but am thankful for a/c.

I'm continuing to pray for all the requests here...just have a difficult time keeping up with posting responses to both the board here and the FB CHFWeb prayer group page. Usually I just respond on FB, but I am checking here, too, to make sure I'm not missing anyone. Smile

With love and hugs,
Tamara


Blessings,
Tamara

Bringing all of these prayer concerns before our Heavenly Father today, and believing for all of God's highest and His best for everyone and their families here.

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."

Philippians 4:6-7


Grace & Peace,
Diana

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. James 1:17

Was thanking God this morning for the gift of being able to forgive and not growing bitter.

Brought me about to the gift of repentance and being thankful that this gift, so underserved was given to me, a woman who thought she was saved already.

What gifts has God given you? What gifts has He given that may not have seemed like gifts at the time?


I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere him.
~from Ecclesiastes 3:14~

Just wanted to say again that I pray for the requests posted here even though I seldom post. This is always the first and last section I check...and when time is limited, THE ONLY section I check when I'm online. And I pray for all the requests.


In His Joy and Grace,

Kate

"The Unseen Trap" ... There was a spider web right above our head. Sure enough, an unsuspecting fly flew right into it. Each effort to get free only entangled it more. Soon it was enveloped by the silk of the spider. Success again for the spider.
