Re: CTC: Organizing

I use dish pans that you wash dishes in. They are wider than most containers I've seen. I put all read-alouds in one, independent history in another, DITHOR in another, etc. I put all the language arts in one and my daughter knows exactly where everything is. Oh, I forgot science. I have a low bookc...

Re: Will HOD prepare for college and world knowledge?

Hi, I have homeschooled for 17 years and have two children already graduated. A love for learning and not being burnt out is important, I think. My kids loved high school and were prepared for college because they could work independently and knew how to think. I believe HOD provides this, especiall...

Re: math

Thanks again for your help. My daughter is in 5th grade and on level 4B. We will finish that level in May. So we have plenty of years to finish Singapore through 6A and 6B. At that time I can evaluate and see if I want to use Mathessentials. I love how Singapore makes you think. My daughter has lear...

Re: math

Thanks! Carrie's reply really helped. Carrie, I have a question regarding mathessentials. Did you have your son go through all the concepts or just pre-algebra concepts? I'm not familiar with this curriculum at all. Is he doing this along with 6A and 6B or just during his 8th grade year before Algeb...

Preparing book

I have a copy of The Great Dinosaur Mystery and the Bible, but it is not the revised edition. Will that be okay? What is the difference?
Thanks,

independent history Preparing

What is the reading level for most of the books in the self-study history book in Preparing? My daughter has struggled with reading and want to be sure she can read these. She reads easily on a 3rd grade level, and will do fine with 4th grade level with help from me occasionally. Fifth grade level w...

Re: cursive question

Julie,
Did you write the devotion book that Carrie is selling through HOD? Or is she selling it? I've seen a devotion book for moms on this website, I think. How can I purchase it for next year?
Thanks,
Susan

Re: cursive question

Julie, I like the idea of the personal message in the morning! I may run her through Cheerful Cursive, too. I'll take a look at it. Also, I've been reading your weekly summaries of Preparing and I'm excited to do that with my dd next year. I love CTC and am so tempted to move on since my daughter is...
