Heart of Dakota Tidbit:

You can be flexible with HOD!

Did you know that you do not need to complete a guide by the end of your school year? Many families move from one guide to the next seamlessly mid-year. For example, our youngest son, Beau began this school year in Creation to Christ and is now in the next guide, Resurrection to Reformation. The steady and methodical progression of skills is the most important factor, not completion of the guide.

Have a great weekend!

    I have two questions. Is there concern for continuity of the history? Is this also possible with the high school guides? Thank you.

    1. Hello Deanna! You still have the continuity of chronological history by moving through each guide from start to finish and by moving through the guides sequentially. This tidbit is to encourage you that if you don’t complete a guide by the end of the ‘school year,’ you can pick up where you left off the next ‘school year,’ as steady progression through guides is more important than completion of a guide within a certain time. Beau began this school year in Sept. by finishing what he had left of CTC, and then he moved right into RTR. I was able to enjoy homeschooling him myself, as Mike and Carrie were often at Mayo Clinic with Greyson. In regard to high school, you can still view pacing this way. The only difference is you will also need to consider state requirements, as well as when you want your student to graduate.

      In Christ,

    Thank you so much.
