SATs and Other Testing

Hey neighbors!

As many of you know, we homeschool our children.  Although 3 of the children have already graduated and one is graduating this year, I still have two in school.  Now, many students take an SAT test twice in their high school years, usually the Junior and Senior year.  Many colleges and universities require applicants to take the SAT.  There is an online website where you or your child can prepare for their SAT that I was recently introduced to.  I am sure you will recognize the Barron's name as it has been known for over 65 years for test prep.

Anyway, that being said, how many of my neighbors feel that they or their child is or was prepared for the SAT test?  Or any of the other testing that can be done?   Do you plan extra studies ahead of time to prepare for the exam?  I am just wondering how much advance preparation is actually needed and if an online course might help.

I can remember preparing in school for the standardized tests.  Our teachers spent extra time gearing us up for the exams in the weeks right before the test dates.  We spent extra time studying what we would need to know and how to properly fill out the test answer sheets.  Do any of you remember those days?  You had to use a #2 pencil and your parents were sent home a notification that you should get extra sleep.  You actually practiced filling in the little oval properly!

Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you think.  If you have ever used Barron's let us know how it assisted you or your child prepare for the exam.

I am thinking extra study to familiarize yourself with what will be on the exams would be a big benefit, although I have always taught my children that I do not want them studying just to pass.  I want them to actually learn and retain the information that they are studying.

Well neighbors, thank you for your time and for sharing your opinions.  I look forward to seeing you all soon At the Fence!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
