Re: Bible Study in the College Years

Congrats on graduating your son! How neat that he has been asked to lead Bible Study for his church college group! We love Bob Schultz too - wish he had been able to write more books before he passed away, but his books live on to inspire young men everywhere. I would recommend "Battlefield of the M...

Re: Preparing Hearts for His Glory

Hello, My second son will start the guide preparing in Jan. I was going to use the old guide with him. Is there a huge difference between the old revision and the new one? Will some of the books still be used. I know I have all the books, even the ones for the expansion package, for the older revis...

Re: Confused, Struggling

Oh good! Sounds like a great plan is coming together! As far as the DITHOR kickoffs, as Rice said, as long as you keep them on the same genre, they can do their kickoffs together. There are usually about a dozen kickoff ideas to choose from, so there's a lot of fun and fresh ideas there! There are q...

Re: Confused, Struggling

So glad you are coming back to HOD and in a better place to do so! My placement advice is very similar to Rice's (thanks Rice, BTW)! 7th grade son starting in Jan.: Definitely Revival to Revolution for all the reasons Rice mentioned, and also because he's been doing online schooling with probably li...

Re: Multiple ages

Welcome to the HOD Board, Sunnyridge! I just finished reading Rice's response to your post, and I agree with it wholeheartedly! She gave such solid advice, and I'm so glad she responded because she has a similar family make-up and has done an outstanding job of making Heart of Dakota work well for s...

Re: Alternative to Rod&Staff Language Arts - Bigger

Hello Mallory, and welcome to the HOD Board! I'm so glad you are enjoying Heart of Dakota with your son! You can use any grammar with Heart of Dakota, so if you want to use a different one you certainly can. As the previous poster shared, it is a good idea to only do grammar for the amount of time s...

Re: Preparing Hearts for His Glory

Thanks for your interest in using Heart of Dakota, and thanks Rice for answering! I'll just provide a few details. The PHFHG guide has copyrights of 2008 and 2015. New copyrights are only reissued for bigger changes, not just for reprintings. We don't keep track of all the updates, as it is confusin...

Re: Reading Comprehension

Excellent advice here already, so I'll just share that we have loved DITHOR for over a decade in our home. It definitely helps kiddos with reading comprehension and with vocabulary. It also ignites a passion for reading due to the excellent books Carrie has chosen! I hope you enjoy it as much as we ...

Re: WH Ordering Question / English Placement ?

It is good to hear from you! With what you've shared previously and now here as well, I still think moving forward with the plan to do World History as it is written, including the English credit, would be best. There is enough review at the start of EIW, and Matthew Stephen's directions are so clea...

Re: Moving at the beginning of the school year! Need advise.

Good Morning, This is our first year using HOD and I am super excited! But we just decided to move out of state for my husbands work and it will likely be End of September. Not the end of the world but I am wondering if I should either wait until we are settled to start up HOD and just use Time4lea...

Re: Placement for 7 and 5 year old

Thank you for your response! My 7 year old can copy down sentences (1-2 short sentences at a sitting before she wears out). She is working on explode the code phonics right now where she is required to spell words similar to those you mentioned. It's the reading that gets her! She is also already w...

Re: Placement for 7 and 5 year old

Hi Sara! Your 7 year-old could place in either Little Hearts for His Glory or Beyond Little Hearts for His Glory from what you've shared so far. Either guide is very appropriate for a 7-year-old! So, to choose between the two guides, I have some questions. Is your 7-year-old writing letters, words, ...

Re: World Geography Literature Substitutions

Carrie, Thanks so much for your reply. I'm glad that it's a fairly straight-forward substitution here. I'm praying that next year is a real breath of fresh air for us. We're overseas, so don't have the luxury of jumping ship mid-year. :-) We'll continue with our current course for this year and tru...
