Re: Update and a question

My biggest hint is to just concentrate on phonics and Storytime with your 6yo! Drop the rest of the guide. If you have an older one who could read the Storytime daily, even better! I'm to the point (running 3 mostly independent high schoolers, and 2 in RTR and Preparing needing me for about an hour...

Re: Update and a question

I also have all my kids who do dictation do it at the same time every day. At 10:30 I am done with the younger ones and ready to work with my high schoolers, so that's when they all come, study their passage, then pass me their copy. I read a phrase/sentence aloud to each one as they are ready, whi...

Update and a question

Good morning fellow HOD homeschool moms... It's been a long long LONG time since I posted here and I thought it was time for an update. We've been with HOD for many years. This next year I'll be running several guides and I have to admit I'm a little nervous about it. Next fall we will be running th...

Re: Question re: researching "Probe" in Con Lit (US History

Julie thank you for your thoughtful and helpful response, as always! I did go back and reread the instructions at the beginning of the manual to see if I had missed anything, that is always such a good idea because I do tend to forget things as we go along through a guide. And I can see your point a...

Re: Question re: researching "Probe" in Con Lit (US History

Hi Lynn, That makes a lot of sense and I think I'll just follow your lead on this. I'm thinking oral discussions would be much better, given how difficult it is to do adequate research in such a short time frame. In fact I think what I'll have him do is write a paragraph or two, narration style, tel...

Question re: researching "Probe" in Con Lit (US History I)

I'm wondering what you all are doing with this assignment in each episode in Constitutional Literacy? We're having some trouble with it on two fronts. First, it takes quite a while for my son to do a decent amount of research online and then write thoughtfully and intelligently about the issue, so w...

Re: Needing a general idea what to expect

Lisa, So we'll be running World Geo and US History I at the same time, and I saw you have one in CTC - I do too! I haven't updated my signature in a long time (I need to do that) but it looks like we'll be running three of the same guides. My younger set are in Beyond though, they haven't made it to...

Re: Needing a general idea what to expect

Carrie, Thank you so much for the link to Julie's schedule, that looks super helpful! No worries about not getting your schedule posted yet. Anyone who reads this board knows that there has been *so much* going on for you and your family the last couple of years. I think I speak for all of us when I...

Needing a general idea what to expect

Hello ladies, I'm needing a general idea what to expect (times-per-box) for World Geography and for US History I ... I used to have the times for World Geo but can't seem to find my note on that anywhere, and I've searched the board to no avail for times for both World Geo and US History I. I know i...

Re: Dyslexia, Emerging Reader - Preparing???

Watching one child struggle while another soars is tough, especially when it's been this way for their entire lives. My heart really goes out to you on this, I know *exactly* what you are talking about. We've been through this and are still going through it. It's enough to break a mama's heart. I d...

Re: Dyslexia, Emerging Reader - Preparing???

Hi Amber, I'm hardly ever on the board, but I noticed your post and wanted to take a second to encourage you that HOD is a great choice for a family dealing with dyslexia. I have eight kids and two of mine are dyslexic, and we use HOD at every level. You've gotten some really great advice already. I...

Times for World Geo

Hi ladies,

I've been on the board for an hour looking up times-per-box for all the guides I'm using this year and I can find everything I need except World Geo... does anyone have a link for that?

Thanks in advance...

:)
