Re: Why would I pick HOD over another curriculum?

Thanks to all of you! Rebecca, My children are 9(boy),6 (girl), 2 (boy) and hoping to adopt a baby girl this year.

Re: Phonics and emerging reader question

Okay, this all helps. The last question though is about phonics. She (almost 7 yrs old) already knows how to read at about a level 3 so it appears she will go onto DITHOR 2/3 instead of emerging reader? Do I use any phonics with her for the rules part of harder suffixes etc ? Or do you think I can s...

Why would I pick HOD over another curriculum?

Can you give me your opinion on why I would pick using Heart of dakota over something like ACE or another more independent curriculum that is easier on mom with more than 2 children? I genuinely want to know the benefits of HOD as I seewith 2 packages it seems a lot of mommy time will be involved tr...

Phonics and emerging reader question

My dd is almost done with 1st grade and learned to read when she was 4 using 100 EZ Lessons. We will be doing Beyond and I wanted to know how I know if she is an emerging reader or independent reader? Also, doesn't she need more phonics for the harder suffixes and prefixes etc? I was thinking of R&S...

Re: How hard to do 2 packages at once?

My goodness, if all of you can do it, it must not be that hard to work a schedule out. :) This makes me feel a lot better if I decide to go with 2 packages.

How hard to do 2 packages at once?

So how hard is it really to do 2 packages at once (Beyond and Prepare)? Am I going to go crazy going from one to the other all day? Will it seem like too many projects and everything going on at once? I will also have a 2 yr old hopping around and we might be adopting a baby this next year also. I j...

Re: Which packages for my children?

Forgot to add, Wendy, that my sons are both biological dc, but my 6 yr old was adopted from Guatemala and we are waiting to adopt domestically now as our daughter really wants a sister.

Re: Which packages for my children?

Thanks for the replies. When looking at placement it looked like my oldest could do Preparing and my youngest Beyond. I never thought about combining as I thought 3 years difference was too much. So you don't think Bigger would be too much for my youngest or that she would be deprived:) not being ab...
