Re: MTMM High School Credit Description/Form

Did anyone ever come up with something for this? I'd just hate to re-invent the wheel if it's been done already.

Re: high school help

Julie, Thanks for a speedy response. I hope all is going well with Carrie's son getting treatment that he needs. Kate plans to attend a Christian College for a Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design. NC doesn't officially have state standards for homeschoolers so we are flexible, but we are aiming for t...

high school help

My daughter has done most of the HOD programs from LHTH through MTMM. She dabbled in WG for 9th grade, but asked to try a World History textbook instead. She did ok with that, but missed the living books. For 10th grade, she's been using Sonlight 100 for American History. The history part is ok, but...

Re: Boy help

Have you tried the series God's Design? It may be what you're looking for as it has different levels to pick from.

skipping from WG to US1 ?

I have a daughter who is doing really well in her studies and is wanting to skip into the US 1 history guide next year. She would prefer to study the topics that are covered in that guide. She has come up through using all the HOD guides, so is there any reason she couldn't skip from WG to US1?

CTC Unit 29 Day 1 science ?

We are in unit 29 day 1 of CTC and I'm not sure about an answer to the science question. Exploring the History of Medicine says the answer to question #2 on page 85 is False, but my son showed me a passage that seems to make the statement true. The question reads: The only difference between galacto...

Re: Times for World Geo

Did anyone ever get the times posted for these guides? Now that it's buying season again, there will be more people questioning this. (Including me)

We use the kids first name initials. So ours is K.A.A.L. Academy.

Re: How are skills taught for learning to study for/take a t

We've done all the guides through Rev to Rev. In Rev to Rev, the science has quizzes built into it. I believe there are also unit tests. They aren't long, but they test the knowledge gained from the unit. My daughter doesn't study for them, but you do use the quizzes and tests toward the final grade...

Re: Any HOD families in Tn, Georgia,Fl, South Carolina ?

We are in North Carolina. Our area has a lot of retired people who were looking to escape the cold north as well as a lot of young families. In my exact location, I can participate in at least 3 co-ops if we wanted. There are 4 or 5 Christian schools within 30 or so minutes drive. I can get to a big...

Re: The *S* word - socialization

My personal opinion, for what it's worth, is that today's families are too busy. We love that our schedule is not too busy to eat together each evening and spend time on the weekends with Dad when he's available. Not to say that my kids don't have any friends, but we choose to limit our time outside...

Re: Moving up help

You know your kids best. If you feel like your oldest needs more and is ready to move up a level, then do so. That's the beauty of homeschooling. You can move at your child's pace. Sometimes that means slowing down and sometimes that means jumping up a level so they can learn on their level. Feel fr...

Re: I wish I had the guts to leave HOD for a year!

I completely understand. Not that I'd want to leave HOD, but I wish my kids knew how good they have it. I've thought about letting them visit school on visitors day, but honestly, they'd probably love it since they do special activities on those days. Maybe I should just re-create real school for a ...
