Re: Testing Question? Still LOVING HOD!

Thank you Melissa, that is very helpful. I would love to get a hold of the Spectrum Test Prep books, however, since I live overseas, the chances of getting them before the test are highly unlikely!! :) I can only find the test preps as ebooks if they are state specific...meaning test prep specifical...

Loving HOD and Need Advice for Beyond LA

Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you know that we just finished our 6th week of the school year with HOD. My older two, 4th and 5th, are using CTC and are LOVING it! OH MY! I have NEVER been so happy with a curriculum or felt SO at peace with our school year. No stressing, no rushing, just enjoying!!...

Re: Prayer Request- Missing HOD Box :)

Thank you everyone for your prayers! I have been on the phone several times yesterday and today, and still no box. I am still optimistic and praying that we will locate the box today, but we'll see. :)

Thank you!!

Prayer Request- Missing HOD Box :)

Hi Ladies, I am asking for prayer from all of you. I live in Indonesia and my parents have come to visit and brought with them all of my HOD materials for this coming year. Well, one of the boxes that they brought has gone missing, the one with the teacher's guide and most of the books. It was part ...

Re: Poor Speller and CTC

Thank you Julie for the examples of the dictation. That is a great help. Can you explain to me a little about how dictation is done over the week, or point me to a place where I can read about it? Do they do a different dictation passage each day, every day of the 4-day week? If they do poorly on th...

Re: Poor Speller and CTC

Hi Joy, Happy Resurrection Sunday to you and your family, too! As far as the spelling question, I think you can just match the dictation level in CTC that matches your son best. I'm not much help, because our dd is older and spelling has finally become pretty well handled at this point. But, I thin...

Re: Poor Speller and CTC

The only thing I would do in the interim is perhaps, begin dictation --- if you want to do that. Do you have any of the guides yet? My guys were all weak spellers when we began HOD and my oldest was a 6th grader when we began. He has done fine and his spelling has improved immensely. I'll post back...
