by Mary Ann Kelley

We are so pleased to be hosting Lee Binz’s free webinar on "A Homeschool Parent’s Guide to High School Grades, Credits, and Transcripts" and I am getting very excited! I have had the pleasure of hearing Lee give this presentation and it is fantastic – I can’t believe how much information she includes. I have already used what I’ve learned from Lee’s seminar to get started on my 16 year old’s transcripts and I have a new confidence about completing them. Continue reading »

Goodies: Math-U-See Gamma

by Mary Ann Kelley

[Update: Congratulations to Jackie (#69) who won the Math-U-See! Jackie, please contact me with your mailing address by Monday, March 7, so I can mail your goodies.] Today’s goodie up for grabs is Math-U-See Gamma. I have available the DVD, the Teacher Manual, and the unused Test Booklet. It does not include the Student Workbook or the blocks. The materials are in very good shape but they do have Kelley written inside the cover. We really enjoyed this program when used with the blocks; by building the problems instead of just writing numbers, the students are able to understand the concept rather than just memorize the procedure.
