►This site was originally created for my kids and their cousins, because we did science together. We eventually added more friends and I ended up having science classes for five years. I am no longer adding to the site (since 2014), but will leave it up for others' use. I do post to facebook occasionally if I come across something to share. =)

►Please accept my apology for any broken links or videos that do not work. I am always disappointed when people take down their videos from YouTube. It makes it hard to find just the right replacement. And because the videos were posted years ago, I usually have no recollection of what the video was about.
I kept thinking I would have time after my kids graduated, but life has filled up my free time with new responsibilities. =)

►Please do not email, asking me to post your website link, or to review something to put on my site. Any resources posted on this site are things I had found on my own during my regular searching for material I needed at the time, and liked it well enough to post here. There have never been any affiliates on my site, and as it is no longer active, would not be worthwhile at this point. ;)
Thank you!

### Adjectives with Marcella and Armando

(2) The Four Principle Functions of Adjectives
Adjectives also tell what color, how many, which one (a, an, the, and other descriptive adj.)

-er, -est. Does not mention the words comparative and superlative.

Lord Syntax has lost his book of modifiers!
Adjectives are modifiers that modify nouns and pronouns.
They answer the questions which,what kind, how many, what color, what size.
Articles a, an, and the; demonstrative adjectives these, this, that, and those.
Do not confuse the adjective form of these, this, that, and those with the pronoun form.

(2) Lord Syntax and Adjectives 2
Degrees of comparison.
--Positive, no comparison;
--Comparative, -er; less and more;
--Superlative, -est; least and most.

### Driver's Permit for NC

1. For driver's permit, contact your local public school for requirements, class dates, and registration.

2. I would suggest also calling North Carolina Division of Non-Public Education (NCDNPE) 1(919)733-4276 to make sure their requirements are still the same as what I've listed here.
NCDNPE Student Driving Information.

These are things I needed when my kids got their Driver's Permits.
1.  Contact your local courthouse for a birth certificate if your child was born in the county you live in.  If not, you can request a birth certificate from Raleigh, NC.  1(919)733-3000
Check with your local Driver's License office to make sure the one from Raleigh is the correct birth certificate.  I was told it had to be from the courthouse, not the one I received at my child's birth!  The man at the DMV said that's usually the Mother's copy, and that it needs to be a certified birth certificate with a raised seal. (not this kind)

2. For any non-public school that has been registered with NCDNPE for more than 6 months, you may call them at the above number and request a verification of school form. (not sure what the "correct" name for this is)  It will be a sheet of paper that has your school info on it, and will be notarized by NCDNPE.  This is proof that you have a legitimate, registered school.
This will also have the School ID # in the bottom corner that you will need.
I had to take this with me to the local public school upon registration for driver's education classes.

3. Right after student starts classes, you may call NCDNPE or go online to request a DEC (Driver's Eligibility Certificate), which you will fill in and date right before going to get the permit in case you don't get to go right away -- the DEC is only good for so many days after the date.  This will be a notarized half-sheet of paper.  When requesting online, you will need the School ID #.

If you call NCDNPE, choose Option 3:  Student Driving.
