Like many homeschooling moms, I am constantly trolling for new ideas, products, and curriculum. Last week, I had the opportunity to order some long awaited (and needed) schoolbooks for the kids. 5 separate orders, 5 deliveries to wait for. In case you're wondering, here is what I have ordered:
from TRISMS: www.trisms.com
Discovering the Ancient World for Andrew. He is slightly behind in his 8th grade year because of the extensive camping he did last year with the Scouts and family. So consequently, he will be working on this one throughout the summer.
I also ordered the High School Resource pack AND the Started Resource set with the IEW (Institute For Excellence in Writing) schedule. Unfortunately, the only shipping option was via media mail, so the one thing I desperately need NOW, I have to wait for.
Next up- Phonics Road to English Grammar for Hannah and Sarah. I know it was shipped priority last week, so here's to hoping.......
Leap Frog learning videos from Amazon- For Matthew, of course. He is such a visual learner, and because of that I am hoping to steer him away from Spiderman for awhile. Also waiting on various spelling books from them too.
AOPS Algebra 1 for Andrew. Again, a late start ( I wanted him to start this in August), but I hope to have him finish by the end of the summer.
DIVE Physical science DVD from BJU Press. This is to go with what I bought from a private seller.....
Now...from private sellers I am waiting on...
BJU Physical science text, teacher's manual, tests, lab books, and lab videos.
TRISMS History Makers for my middle-schoolers.
DVD lectures on American History and World History originally from www.GreatCourses.com
So, now that you know what I am waiting for... know that I am LOSING MY MIND waiting! I will, when I get the goods, post reviews about each of the new things I ordered. BAH HUMBUG.
