Re: New to HOD

We used our own math for the younger and middle guides, and my son has been several levels ahead in English, so we really haven't followed those parts of the guides, but the using the guides for history/Bible/geography (and electives) has been MORE than worth it, in my opinion. With my son, I had ho...

Re: 2nd Purchase of Teacher's Guide - Discount?

Just a little note to mention that you can reuse the guides for subsequent children, using a different check-off system for each one. For instance, for my son, I put a check in each box when the box was completed. Down the road, when my daughter used the same guide, I put her initial in each complet...

Re: World Geography English 1 vs Fund Lit & Engl/Comp

I'm pretty sure both options are the same; it's just a matter of how you want to list it on your child's transcript. Some prefer to list just one credit of English (which includes both English/Composition & Literature), whereas others prefer to break the two areas apart into two 1/2 credit courses, ...

Re: CTC after PHFHG?

I agree with Rice! :-) Preparing is a one-year overview of world history. After that, world history is again studied chronologically, but spread over four years to allow for much more depth. I believe a combination of the resources used in CTC and the way history is studied in a more detailed manner...

Re: Interest in Reviving the Board?

Oh, yes!!! It would be great to see the board revived. I've been a part of the board for over almost 11 years, ever since we began HOD with my little boy in Beyond Little Hearts. He is now finishing up his high school journey, with HOD still being a wonderful part of that journey. I have been tremen...

Re: Struggling Learner Getting Further and Further Behind

How does your son do when material is read to him, rather than him reading it himself? If he does much better with comprehension with materials read to him, then I'm wondering if you could move from having him read the CTC material himself, to listening to it read aloud. If he has dyslexia, it is no...

Re: NBing pages & new guides: moving forward

With the current guide, students make their own notebooks, using a 3-ring binder. All of the instructions are in the guide and are easy for the students to follow. HTH :)

Re: A Detailed Scope and Sequence?

I have received all the materials needed to implement what we discussed. Now that I am looking at the details, if I have Ruth do the extensions in MTMM, what incentives does she have to read those books? The teacher's guide has activities for the basic books but no activities for the extension book...

Re: How to Conquer the End-of-day Correcting Pile-up

For some subjects, it works best for me to correct work with my child at the beginning of each oral time. For instance, when I sit down to do English or math with one of my children, we first correct the work from the previous day before doing the oral for the new day's lessons. I'm much more consis...

Re: Check-in: What guides are you using?

We are long-time HOD users here. Life threw us a wrench that kept us from having a smooth homeschooling path, when my mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's five years ago and I became her primary caregiver. When it got too difficult to manage things from a distance two years ago, we moved my mom in wit...

Re: Using math textbooks and grammar teacher’s guide

For grammar, the teacher's guide has all of the answers, making it much easier to grade a student's work, so I think it's well worth the cost. I have also found the oral drills and "written" (we do them orally) quizzes, found in the teacher's book, to be an amazing tool to help solidify the material...
