Re: Using younger guides for high school credit

It is definitely possible. There is a pinned post about beefing up the guides. The main things are: 1. Adding in things to make the government (Rev2Rev) and economics (MtMM) enough for a half credit each. 2. Making sure you meet your state's science requirements. This may mean switching out a scien...

Using younger guides for high school credit

How would this work? I am specifically thinking if my up and coming 6th grader were to join her 4th grade sister in Preparing then she would do Rev to Rev for 9th, MTMM for 10th and then what? She is a bright student, but really really hates reading and writing. I am thinking she places well in the ...

Re: Do you ever wish you could start over?

I can really relate as well. We have done MFW every year since 2007 but the 2 we did HOD. I constantly have moments where I panic and wonder if I've ruined them academically or otherwise. But, I found this post the other day and the part I will quote here spoke to me so much. 4. Myth: If you don’t ...

If a child doesn't hit MTM until 9th grade

How does that work for counting college credits? Do they end up missing a year of the HS guide?

Re: Totally lost for placement....

My initial questions would be: *How long are your 12, 11, and 9 your olds written narrations for RTR's note booking? *How are they doing in their oral narrations of SOTW? *Could any, or all of them, read SOTW on their own if they had to? *What level of independent reading are they at? *Is writing a...

Totally lost for placement....

The short of it is this: My girls all did MFW K, MFW 1st, 1st daughter did MFW ADV, then we tried and failed at MFW ECC. We took two years to do HOD. My oldest went through Bigger & Preparing. My 2nd did Beyond and the next year just Reading, Math, and LA, and my 3rd did Little Hearts and parts of B...

another Guide question :)

Note: We are doing MFW Creation to Greeks this year. My girls are 2nd, 4th, and 6th right now. If we switch back to HOD this fall, I am confident my oldest will do great moving right into Res to Ref. But, I am not sure what to do with the next two. I think they can go together and do well. Even thou...

Re: I am so torn over what to do....

But that would be 3 guides. Can we do this?[unquote] I don't know anything about MFW but 3 guides IS doable, when they are properly placed. 3 guides for 4 kids was torture for us last fall when 2 were in over their heads. Now we're doing 5 guides: 2 moved down so we were doing 4 guides for 4 kids a...

I am so torn over what to do....

My girls did MFW for K, 1st, oldest did ADV, and they did ECC. Then we switched to HOD for 2 years. My oldest did Bigger and Preparing. My 2nd did Beyond. This year we came back to MFW for Creation to Greeks. It has gone well. But we are on week 23 and I am feeling the usual mid year burn out a bit....

Re: If I want to combine 2 of my girls at this point...

I know that my attitude rubs off on the kids, and I'm wondering if you're bored with Bigger how your DD2 is doing with it? What about stopping that right now, finishing out her year with something else and coming back to it next year with both of your children (DD2 and 3?) I think Bigger is a great...

If I want to combine 2 of my girls at this point...

Oldest (almost 11) is doing Preparing. Love it! I plan to move her on to to the next guide next year. DD2 (9) is doing Bigger. Honestly, I'm bored with it this year as I just did it last year with my oldest. DD3 (7) is doing MFW 1st. When we started HOD 1 1/2 years ago, I honestly could not see how ...

If I was going to combine...which ones?

I really loved having the girls in 3 separate guides last year. It worked very well. But this year, I am tired. I am 15 weeks pregnant with #5 and have a 3 year-old who needs someone's attention every waking moment. Oldest dd (10) is doing Preparing. It is perfect for her and going very well. 2nd dd...
