Re: Talk me into Write with the Best

Thanks, LynnH! That really helps for me to see "the plan" laid out for writing. I think I will go with WWTB b/c there will be that balance you spoke of in each day, as well as good preparation for the next guides. I know that when I've tweaked and substituted, I ended up skipping boxes at times, and...

Talk me into Write with the Best

Hi, We will be using CTC next fall with my dd, and I am struggling over choosing a writing program. I heard a "popular" conference speaker talk about her writing program for middle graders, and I was sold on it. But then again, it seems like it would add a lot of work into our days. I like how WWB w...

Re: I need to find a new place to vent

I've been debating the same thing. Loved FB at first, now might de-friend most and just keep up with family. Not sure... But one thing I'm realizing... it's a big time-waster for me, so I'm trying to just stay off most days.

Re: Stretching Preparing Out Into 5 Days?

I'm doing Preparing this year, too, along with LHFHG with my youngest. On Friday, we are going to do math, logic puzzles, and science for the olders. My kids really wanted to do a Marine Life study, so we're doing that on Friday. That will let us dive into the science and do lots of activities on th...

Re: Bigger Hearts Science Scope and Sequence?

Would the "Science Discovery" section at the end of the Bigger Hearts introduction be enough? http://www.heartofdakota.com/pdf/BHFHG-intro-2007-07-11.pdf To be honest, I'm not sure. Our first year we filed we sent in info kind of similar to that and it was sent back to us saying that it wasn't enou...

Organization Tip

This might be obvious to many, :lol: but it was a lightbulb moment for me! You know how most construction paper comes with the colors separated (ie: in order of red, pink, purple, blue, white, black, repeat the pattern, etc). Well, I've always had the paper in a cabinet and we had to sort through th...

Re: Storytime issues...

The Sword in the Tree was a favorite for my boys and girl. Also, "Baby Island"... I think that was adventure, and they all LOVED it (at ages 9- 7- 4). This might have been from Bigger, though... I mixed and matched a bit. Also, Snow Treasure was fantastic. Just a few recommendations...
