  9. Hello Everyone, I am finishing up my Dyslexia Tutor Training with the Dyslexia Training Institute and part of the curriculum is a field assignment to tutor someone who is slow to read or write. l will drive to your home, office, meet at a library or go where ever it would be easy for your student to learn. Here's the criteria for the student for my practicum. Age: must be 5 years old or older. Student can be in K-12 public school, private school, homeschool, college or not attending school at all. Diagnosis - no formal diagnosis required. The student must either: have a dyslexia diagnosis (which many do not) have an IEP with the qualifying condition of SLD be at-risk for a reading and/or writing disability (they have a history of struggling with reading and writing in school) The student must be able to learn other information - have an average to above average IQ. No previous Orton-Gillingham instruction Must be a Native English Speaker The parents have to agree for me to video tape our session for critique of my teaching (a release form will need to be signed-no one sees the video except my teacher.) After passing the final exam, I will be assigned a mentor that will guide me through the practicum and provide feedback on my lessons and lesson plans. Best times for me to tutor would be Monday - Thursday after 1:30- 7 pm. Friday, available all day. Other times could be Saturday. Sunday, only if there is no other time that we can meet. I will need to have 42 lessons completed. The minimum requirement to meet with a student is twice a week with each session being a minimum of 50 minutes. If I need to meet more than twice a week, each session may be shorter as long as the total time adds up to a minimum of 100-120 min per week. For instance, four 25-30 minute sessions would be fine. Any questions, please email me asap. I'm choosing one child, so please call me for an interview asap. If you know of any child that needs help with reading and writing please forward this message. Warm regards. Tami

  15. Rebecca, Thanks for your reply. We are using a variety of math programs: MathVids, XtraMath, & EasyPeasy. My 8th grader didn't learn much in his brick & Mortar public school math class last year, (an overall low "B", 80, grade) so we started a week earlier than our school district w/ 7th grade math so he gets everything he needs before moving onto 8th grade math/Pre Algebra. He is enjoying his other subjects via many different curriculum's, but math is his weakest subject so we are doing extra there. He certainly enjoys his other subjects more given the variety, visits to museums/library, & ability to visit out of town family while he learns away from home. He really enjoys CH's Kids Discover as well. Best to you and yours:) Deborah

  17. I wanted to reach out and say that our first year homeschooling I was beyond overwhelmed. We followed a curriculum and made sure we didn't miss anything even though my son hated the curriculum. This year we are taking a more hands on approach and we are both loving it. We are not doing a set curriculum, we are doing more library visits, museum visits, zoo, and we are traveling more. I realized that through learning we can visit different places. We do have things that he will do on our off days when we aren't going out, but its things he actually enjoys. Did you sign up for the CTC Math? If so, how do you guys like it?

  23. does anyone have any experience with CTCMath for middleschool or highschool?
  24. Gretchen Woertendyke

    another math question

    We decided to use Spectrum 8th grade Critical Thinking and Workbook as the foundation for computational literacy (not comprehensive, also working with cooking, animals, urban farming, money....) - the materials on this curriculum suggest that no calculator is needed but our son believes that he does need one. Just wanted to ask if anyone has any experience with these books and if you recommend using a calculator or not. Thanks in advance for any insight, Gretchen (Columbia, SC)

    New to the Irmo area.

    Hi! My family recently relocated from Florida and I am looking to connect with other homeschooling parents in the Irmo/Lexington/Chapin areas. I have a daughter in the 5th grade and this is our second year of homeschooling.

    Geometry Curriculum

    We are new to homeschooling and are hoping to find some resources to teach our 8th grader geometry. Any science curricula suggestions also welcome. Thank you in advance - nervous but excited.
  27. My son excelled academically in brick & mortar school in 6th & 7th grade. We have decided to homeschool for 8th grade for many reasons. We used Calvert Academy in 4th grade, & K12 in 5th grade. We considered Connections Academy for 8th grade as we wanted more freedom from online live lesson/ required classroom time, but I cannot get the info needed for absences. Several days of his unexcused absences were due to me keeping him home after calls from the school regarding threats of gun violence by students, a few days were due to me signing him out early due to his upset over teachers making inappropriate comments to him. Yeah, that happened! I am certain homeschooling is our best option, I always have felt this way. However, choosing a program/materials completely overwhelms me. Please share what materials/programs you use for 8th grade level other than the three aforementioned schools. Mom in a panic here....thanks in advance, Blessings:)
