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...

Re: Placement Advice (9th grade)

I'm also from NY and agree with rumkimom that it would be no problem to use MTMM for 9th. My son is currently finishing 9th grade and we're not yet in the high school guides, yet had no problem getting our IHIP accepted.

If you purchased your CTC guide from HOD, you can contact them and they will send you the schedule.

Re: Boys to Men and FRUSTRATION

I'm by no means an expert, but can simply share what I have learned from my experience and through lots of reading. To begin with, I had an epiphany one day, when I realized how few years I have left with my son. It made me want to hold onto every moment I have with him and to make our remaining yea...

Re: Boys to Men and FRUSTRATION

My son is 12.5 and been a needing a lot more sleep! ... teenagers are going through baby/toddler faze again! That their bodies are changing just as much as when they were little bitty and that we need to be very conscious of their true need for more sleep. That to us is looks like laziness, but the...

Re: Is DITHOR a read aloud?

The lessons have the student doing both reading to himself and reading to you. If it is helpful, you can take a look at the first week of lesson plans at https://www.heartofdakota.com/pdf/d1.pdf, to see how the reading is broken down day by day. I'm sure you can modify to fit your son's needs withou...

Re: Road Trip

Around the time we were finishing up Bigger Hearts, some of the places we visited were Monticello, James Madison's Montpelier, Mount Vernon, Appomattax, Gettysburg, Lee's Chapel, Stonewall Jackson's House (and more places that I can't remember right now) and found them all to be perfect places to re...

Re: Dual Enrollment Vs. HOD all the way?

These teens are still laying down a lot of patterns and developing their world view. The cost of college is no joke, but the cost of the struggle they may have as a result of those classes is also pretty great. I will pray the Lord gives you wisdom. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on being able...

Re: Using Foerster's Algebra with MTMM

You're welcome! :)

Just a note that the tests are LONG! When I made my son do all of the questions on the tests, it was taking a couple of hours. Once I cut back on the number of problems (as per Carrie's advice), my son was able to complete the tests in a reasonable time (an hour or less).
