In general, we recommend using our 4-year high school guide sequence as planned for families trying to meet NCAA requirements. However, there are different paths through high school families take with HO...

Re: What are your kids enjoying this year in HOD?

From Revival to Revolution's Storytime, we especially loved Amos Fortune, The Reb and the Redcoats, and Seaman! I am actually reading these aloud this time (I didn't when either of my older sons did RevtoRev). I am finding I am in a new stage of life, with my oldest son in college and my middle son ...

Staying Motivated As a Homeschool Mom

Hi ladies! I was recently asked a great question by a fellow homeschool mom. She asked about how to stay motivated as a homeschool teacher through the many years of homeschooling. First, I'll say simply using Heart of Dakota keeps me quite motivated, as all of the planning is done and there is littl...

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 wi...

Re: To combine or not to combine? So may littles, so little

... If you're like me, Bethany, you'll find that starting guides at different times of the year is more freeing than frustrating! I have found that it really dispels the pressure when we start up in the fall. Some kids are going back to what they are familiar with so they can be independent and "fu...
