Re: Questions...skip MTMM

My 8th grader is finishing Rev to Rev and we have decided to go on to MTMM for several reasons. 1. He got a credit for Science this year, so he can actually get the intro to Chemistry without worrying about it not counting for our State (it doesn't). He has to have one Physical Science (which he got...

Re: Preparing for 2nd (8 in Aug) and 4th (10 in Jan) Grader

Placing a child too high in the guides can really cause frustration...I had first hand experience during our first year with HOD. I agree with the others that I would do Bigger with extensions OR do each child in his own guide. My youngest son is finishing Preparing right now...and there is a lot of...

Re: 4th Grade standards with Bigger

Honestly, I would use the placement chart and see where she fits best if you are just starting. We have used HOD since the beginning and my 9 year old 4th grader is finishing Preparing now. It has been perfect for him...however, we did use English 3 (R&S is advanced anyway). We used math at his grad...

So excited for next year! 9th and 5th grades!

We have been with HOD for a long time, but after this year, we will begin repeating guides! I can't believe it. My youngest son started with Beyond when he was just a little fella and now we are finishing Preparing (10 more weeks!). My oldest son started with CTC and is finishing Rev to Rev. So, nex...

Re: More High School questions/dilemma

MTMM will finish her Am History out and she really needs to use both Rev to Rev and MtMM to truly meet the Am History requirement for high school (it needs to cover the full span). A lot of what you do is going to depend on what state you live in and what your credit requirements are for that state....

Re: MTMM ordering confusion

We will be doing MtMM with my Freshman in the fall and I am ordering the extensions in place of the storytime...so, when my son would normally get to storytime in the guide, he will do his extension work instead. That said, I was a little confused by "doing storytime with him" - because starting in ...

Re: Why is the Science in MtMM not Credit worthy for HS?

In my state (TN), going through our cover school (a Christian Academy) on the 4-year college track, you only need 3 science credits - one with a lab. I have decided that, since my ds took the physical science through EE Advanced this year, next year, we are going to do MTMM as written - maybe beefin...

If you are using MtMM for a High Schooler:

Do you mind to share what you have done, overall, to make it hs credit worthy. Carrie answered my question regarding the Science and I am excited to be able to just add a few book and still use it mostly as written. I just wondered what other tweeks you may have made to make sure everything counts. ...

Re: Why is the Science in MtMM not Credit worthy for HS?

Thank you so much for weighing in here, Carrie. :) This is perfect! I am so excited that we can move right on into MtMM without worry. And thank you for clairfying the reasons that it is not fully credit-worthy on its own. I truly hate to miss the last half of American History and I also hate to pic...

Re: Why is the Science in MtMM not Credit worthy for HS?

I am in TN, and according to our cover school, to earn an academic diploma, a student has to do Chemistry as one of the Science options. Other than the requirement that you do 150 hours of study, there is no "guide" of what you must use to meet that requirement. If I were not using HOD, I could very...

Re: Rod and Staff 7 and 8??

Let's put it this way...I have been asked to teach a college English class at a local Bible college (I have a BA in English, so this isn't just random) and the books we use are R&S 8 for Grammar and R&S 9/10 for Writing. :) It is pretty beefy stuff.
