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...

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.

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...
