If you have not already done so, be sure to log your hours for the Read to Succeed program and get that hard earned Six Flags ticket into your child’s hands.

They just extended the deadline, but it is still coming soon! At this point I believe you have to have registered already, but if you have and you didn’t finish logging hours, do it today!

Sign Language classes

January 25th, 2015

Received this info via email:

High School/College level Sign Classes

Learn American Sign Language (ASL) as your foreign language for High School foreign language credit.  The book we will be using will be at a College level. This will be an academic focused class to be able to receive credits for your transcripts and with the potential to CLEP out of these same classes at College.
My name is Stacey Borrego and I have been involved in the deaf community for over 20 years as an interpreter and teaching Sign Language classes.  I was immersed for a year in the deaf culture traveling and living with a deaf ministry called Deaf Opportunity Outreach (DOOR) where I gained insurmountable experience in this beautiful language called American Sign Language!  I have completed the Interpreter program at Waubonsee Community College.

Since 2005 I have been teaching Sign Language classes to individuals of all ages, Children to adults.  Currently I am an educational and freelance interpreter.

The cost of these classes will be $125 per student. Location will be: 737 Hamilton Way Batavia The dates of the classes will be every Tuesdays from 6:00 – 7:00pm (below is a list of the dates):

1/20;  1/27; 2/3; 2/10; 2/17; 2/24; 3/3; 3/10; 3/17; 3/24; 4/7; 4/14; 4/21; 4/28; 5/5; 5/12; 5/19

In addition to these classes we will be going to some deaf events at different times.  This will be optional on different days.

If you are interested in signing up please either email me at szraborrego@aol.com or call me at 630-479-9094.  After you register I will send you the information about the book you will need.

Thanks!   Stacey Borrego

Transcript software

December 5th, 2014

With high school comes the somewhat daunting task of preparing a transcript. Personally I have enjoyed Homeschool Tracker. I have used it for about 5 years now and while it had a bit of a learning curve, I really enjoy all the different uses of the program for keeping track of all my kids’ academic progress. This used to be a free trial download that I enjoyed so much I bought the full version. Now, as so many programs do, it requires a membership.

I recently heard about another more affordable option through HSLDA.

High School Transcript Service

Fast Transcripts gives homeschool parents the ability to create professional high school transcripts with error-free GPA calculation. Cost is only $16 per year per student ($12 for HSLDA members). For families like mine, it would be better to purchase the program for $110 ($96 for HSLDA members) and own it for life.

Do you have a favorite transcript template or program?

Hour of Code — do you have a budding programmer?

November 18th, 2014

Received via email:

Last December, our friends at Code.org launched the Hour of Code. This year we are excited to offer a bunch of new ways for your child to participate!

What is the Hour of Code?
The Hour of Code is an hour-long introduction to computer programming designed to demystify coding and show students that everyone can learn the basics. At Khan Academy, we’ve crafted several custom-made tutorials for your child that require no prior experience.

Try Hour of Code on Khan Academy!

Hour of Drawing with Code: Your child will learn to program using JavaScript, one of the world’s most popular programming languages via two great options:

  • Drag-and-drop: block-based coding for younger children with less typing skills and children on tablet devices (ages 8+).
  • Typing: keyboard-based coding for older children (ages 10+).

Hour of Webpages: Your child will learn to make their own webpages using the basics of HTML and CSS (ages 10+).

Hour of Databases: Your child will learn the fundamentals of databases using SQL to create tables, insert data into them, and do basic querying (ages 12+).

Last year, 15 million students tried computer programming for at least one hour during Computer Science Education Week on Khan Academy and other platforms.

This year, our goal is to reach 100 million students.

Let’s join Microsoft, Google, Apple, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Malala, and millions of others around the world to make history. Start planning your child’s Hour of Code today!
