Extension package question

*Never mind. I was able to get my information elsewhere. Thanks. :) Are there writing assignments scheduled with the extension package reading assignments? If so, what are they like? Do you do the regular reading assignment and the extension or just the extension? I'm specifically looking at Bigger.

What order do you like to do the guides?

I'm going to run three guides (plus I have two doing high school and a toddler) and would really appreciate it if you would share the order you do the subjects. I'm wondering if I want to teach the right side of the guides to everyone and then the left or vice versa. Will my voice give out? Do I wan...

Re: Singapore question

I've used Singapore for 10 years for six dc, but I'm new to HOD. I'm used to teaching with the textbooks so it feels odd not to use them. I'm specifically looking at 2A/2B for Bigger. I assume then that I'm not missing it and the texts are not scheduled in the guide, but it still works ok if I want ...

Re: Would this be an issue?

We decided not to try to do the last 4 guides in 3 years. I decided it would probably overwhelm me. :)

Re: I'm thinking through my options for next year

Julie, Thank you for taking so much time to help me think this through. I think your suggestion for my oldest dd is the best route for her, and we are going to go with it. Yay, one decision down! My dh and I talked about your suggestions last night for the youngest two and we are still feeling a lit...

Re: I'm thinking through my options for next year

Thanks for getting back to me! :D I agree - your 7 yo places solidly in Beyond. :D From what you have shared, I think your 9 yo places in Bigger Hearts. I think your oldest could be in CTC or RTR, but I have a few questions about your older dd please... :D Has she read her own history? How does she...

Re: I'm thinking through my options for next year

I have some more thoughts to add after spending a lot more time looking at the samples. Even though my 2 youngest daughters are going into 2nd and 4th grades, I know they are more at 1st and 3rd grade levels. I think Beyond is a good fit for my going to be second grader. I am wavering between Bigger...

Re: I'm thinking through my options for next year

Oh dear Julie, this is very long. Sorry. :) First off my two younger girls are behind because of some health issues of mine the past two years. I am feeling better, but part of the reason I'm considering HOD is because it is so laid out that dad, grandma, or an older brother might be able to step in...

Re: I'm thinking through my options for next year

Would you do all 3 sets of Read alouds and DITHR?? How do you fit all that in?

I'm thinking through my options for next year

I don't know what curriculum I want to use next year, but I want to consider HOD. The three dc that I might want to use HOD with will be 12 (Nov 6th grade), 9 (Sept. 4th grade) and 7 (June 2nd grade). I haven't decided which programs yet, but I'm considering RTR, Preparing, and Beyond. I might do CT...

Thanks ladies! I'm leaning toward not doing the extensions.
