Re: So, I cleaned out my homeschool closet..... Q abt LHTH

I didn't laminate mine either. I do not have a laminator and it would be too pricey for me.
I love that the cards are photocopiable if one gets ripped :-)

Re: Why would I pick HOD over another curriculum?

Hello, I have 5 children 8 and under and HOD is very doable and rich. Of course I agree whole-heartedly with the counsel you have recieved to seek God and His will for you. Every family is different.

Quick reply

Can you do activites to strengthen his fine motor? Playdough ect. You could continue on and have him answer verbally or you can write the answers for him. He sounds like a sweet boy! :-)
