K12 Mark12 III Reading

My second oldest son have had problem with talking and now reading. He was a late talker and DH and I weren't worried about it at all. Well, if you ask the so called expert, they would say differently.

MARK IIICan someone tell me the correct way to spell "video?"

Anyhow, we been using K12 as most of my reader know (if any...lol) for 3 years now. Most local school district will say that they set their expectation too high, because the lessons are higher than the local public schools. My son above did not passed the state PSSA (DH and I are not worried, we hate the state testings of any kind) and the school put him with Mark III reading (adaptive remediation) for those who got problem with comprehension and grade level behind (in their opinion).

The program is very nice, because he does not need to read much. Everything is recorded and all he have to do is listen. Well, the activities are also computerize and who ever puts the correct answers on those activities are 1) sleeping, 2) does not know how to spell.


How about "pennies?"

He is already behind with the lesson because he needed to be tested and it takes a while to get some one to do the testing. Then he still need to wait to get the result, then another wait for the materials. But since this is free curriculum I don't have any choice but to wait.

However, getting the answers wrong for a very simple words because someone put the wrong answers on the lessons is simply prostrating. How do they expect a grade level behind student to get ahead with all of these technical issues? I will give the not reading part 10, but the missing recordings, videos, tiles, windows, wrong spellings...let's say the 10 turned to nothing...nada, zilts, zero. I don't like this program one bit.


And "copies?"

In conclusion, I rather educate my child in a regular grade level Language Arts in a slower phase than this crap. Mind you the school is getting extra money for each child with disability, and this is the crap they gave my son. Just because someone need to earn a six figure salary a year.

Juice For My Children

I have been buying Juicy Juice for my children, since I had them. I always try something new every time and my children like the mango flavor the most. I started buying them, and stock up for a week use. More likely seven cans for a week used. Then they stopped selling the flavor.

I think it's been a year since the last time they drink some mango flavored juice. Then on June this year, our Uncle from Florida gave us a lot of mangoes. I tried making juices but my kids did not like it as much, plus I don't have a juicer.

Not too long ago, we went to Giant grocery store and found some there. They are very happy and drank so much, like there is no tomorrow. I do mix it with 50 percent water. However, I think they are using public water with these juices, and I am pretty sure that Fluride is present in them. Our raw milk places are getting worst by the months, and we can't find anyone who uses the Jersey cows anymore.

Having a big land will be very useful right now. We only have a little over an acre, and I am sure my neighbors will hate me if I care for one cow. Even chicken, I am scared because I don't want the township people knocking on my door, and finding more ways to collect money from me.

Nothing is good anymore, unless I harvest it myself. I have to bug DH to let me make an herb garden on the side of the house in spring. At least we can have some home grown spices. FDA and other organizations are out of control, in controlling everything. I did not voted for these organizations to take our unalienable rights, other people did. Sad, but it's true.
