When I first got my phone which is a Samsung Galaxy S4, I downloaded some mp3s from a website but then later forgot how I did it. When I did a search for "how to download mp3s from a website on my Android" or "on my Samsung Galaxy S4," all I could find was advice to download apps to search for music.
Not every mp3 is a popular song you can find on a music app or even a song at all. Sometimes an mp3 is simply a link on a website for a ringtone or other audio file. In my case, it was a
recording that a personal friend had made for me. I didn't want to
"stream" it when I was away from home and use too much data on my smart
phone plan so downloading the file was a must. There was a podcast on iTunes available, but my phone is an
Everything I read made it sound like you couldn't download an mp3 file directly from a website. I finally figured out how to do it so I decided to write a quick post which might be of help to someone else with th…
I was in A.C.E. schools for eight years from 2nd through 9th grade so I am essentially a product of A.C.E. I got a good education that prepared me for college and other various pursuits so when I decided to start homeschooling my oldest two kids over 11 years ago, A.C.E. was the obvious choice.
A.C.E. is not the latest trend in homeschooling, but it is by far the easiest program to implement. There is no lesson planning, and the A.C.E. workbooks, called “PACES” are designed in such a way that most of the work is done independently. Since each subject is broken down into 12 PACES (workbooks) per subject per year, three weeks of schoolwork fits easily into a one and a half inch binder. This makes the curriculum extremely portable.
Another great thing about homeschooling with A.C.E. is that you don’t have to purchase an entire year’s worth of curriculum at once. PACES and “score keys” can be purchased individually if need be, which allows for a low start-up cost. Also, the curriculum is…
Even though it’s not my favorite subject in general, my favorite A.C.E. subject is science. I love the emphasis on Creation, and my kids really enjoy working in the Science PACEs. Even if you aren’t doing all A.C.E., I highly recommend their science curriculum. I have a fifth grader this year, and so far, there has been a science project in every PACE! This is great since my son loves hands-on activities. When I think back to my time in A.C.E. schools, I don’t remember doing many projects. I don’t know if there were less projects in the PACES back then, or if we just skipped them since it says, “Project to do at Home.” People who had bad experiences in A.C.E. schools need to realize that students get more out of the curriculum at home. My older kids used to ask to skip the projects, buy my current students love them so we take the projects very seriously--even running to Walmart the same day for any supplies we don’t have. Most of the materials needed are regular household items, and wh…
