Re: Questions about Bible in World History

I want to encourage you in your desire to have your kids or family read the entire Bible. I don’t know how the extra reading would be with the World History (my oldest is in 8th). My encouragement though is it only takes reading 4 chapters of Bible a day to go through the entire Bible in a year. If ...

Re: Dual Enrollment Vs. HOD all the way?

We aren't there yet either, but I have been doing a five year plan for my oldest for 8th - 12th. Our plan does include HOD through 12th. Their spiritual life and Bible knowledge has also always been our primary home school goal. Our plan though does also include a rigorous science / math plan that h...

Re: Switching to HOD from MFW

I haven't used RTR in either; however, from the table of contents it looks like MFW RTR ends around unit 27 in HOD RTR. Thus, it would only be the last 7 units of RTR that you haven't covered. My boys love the Diana Waring CDs. They are easy to listen to in the car. If you purchased Volume 2 and lis...

Re: 1st year doing HOD as a full time SAHM - what would you

Thank you Daneale! It is great to be back with HOD! :D I always wanted to try and put my own year together. After doing it for two years it made me truly appreciate Carrie's gift as a curriculum author who builds skills into the content subjects. :) I found I can schedule books easily enough, but my...

Re: 1st year doing HOD as a full time SAHM - what would you

Thank you Daneale for posting your schedule! :D I Love seeing another mom's schedule. It helps to see it. If you wouldn't mind sharing, what are you having your kids do for exercise early in the morning? I like your idea of them getting exercise prior to school work. Up until this past year mine wou...

Re: 1st year doing HOD as a full time SAHM - what would you

My question is though....as I look to the future, to actually putting a schedule together....and hopefully sticking to the schedule.....what are some of your most precious memories of things you did with your kids. I don't want to miss out on what my kids are learning any more and I want to be invo...

Re: New to HOD - placement questions

How much writing can your kids do? I think placement depends a lot on writing stamina and reading levels and the difficulty they can read well. Carrie has them write daily in History, Bible, writing programs, science, grammar programs, her reading program, etc. It adds up to quite a bit. How long of...

Re: Coming Back to HOD

Thank you, Mbrand. It's nice to know that I'm not alone :) Now I just neeed to figure out the 12 year old....weak writer and lacks independence. My 15 year old daughter is pretty independent, so I see her doing well in the Highschool courses. :) Your 12 year old sounds similar to my 12 year old. Mi...

Re: Which Reading Books To Choose?

OK, I just realized that the oldest has been reading Diary of A Wimpy Kid and Captain Underpants books. Not the best books, I know, but I'm wondering if I can use those to determine where to put him in reading? He would place in level 3 book pack from what you are saying. He would do the level 3 bo...

Re: Which Reading Books To Choose?

I am going to have my almost 8 year old and almost 10 year old in Bigger starting this summer. I am not sure which reading books to choose for them, and I am not sure what reading levels they are at. They have both been in school for 2 years while I had to take a break from homeschool. I am also no...

Re: Combining a Kinder with a 2nd grader. Is it possible?

I would not put a 6yo in Bigger. It might work for a year, with that child basically tagging along in things of interest while focusing on the basics, but it isn't a long term solution. If you want to combine, you have to place the lower and beef up for the older. That would mean doing LHFHG with b...

Re: MTMM / WG Question

Have you considered maybe doing the science in Rev2Rev with MtMM? It is still physical science, but I bet it would be shorter days compared to WG. Thank you Stephanie for the idea! :) I am now going to compare Rev2Rev, MTMM, and WG science and see which one I think would be the best fit. Thanks! :)...

Re: MTMM / WG Question

My son did Algebra 1 with the MTMM guide and it worked out fine. We did TT though and I don't think it takes quite as long as Saxon. Also I think it would work to sub in the science from WG, but keep in mind that sometimes they do 2 lessons and that can take quite awhile to do. Sometimes science wa...

Science Placement for 8th with MTMM?

(Original post edited and changed June 28th AM after more research and prayer, and after LynnH's and Stephanie's original responses.) I am thinking of putting my oldest into MTMM for his 8th grade year coming up. On the placement chart he places very well into this guide. It is in the area of scienc...
