Re: Dinosaurs of Eden

Correct, but I believe you are afforded up to two substitutions. i.e. sub one book in the boy interest pack for for Dinosaurs of Eden. You may also be able to purchase it individually from the HOD bookstore.

Re: Bigger Unit 4 Day 2 Science - need help

Hmm... I already packed our guide book, but looking at her notebook entry, she did the oval flatworm. Is there an option on which to do? But I think you're on the right track!

Re: information needed about the kits

Two things I'd Like to offer up Dancinkayak, 1: You will be amazed at what your kids can handle, as opposed to what you thought they could handle coming out of public school. I know I was! They are capable of so much more than has been asked of them in the public education system. 2: The age ranges ...

Re: Why are there high school history books in CTC?

Just for fun I ran the first page of "The cat in the hat" through your link. It came back as third grade level. Every child is different, but most kids can ready "The cat in the hat" by the end of 1st grade I'd wager. So there is a possibility that the site program is off, or looking for specific ma...

Re: New homeschooler

I took my son out of PS, and he really HATED doing any kind of school work period. Once we started using HOD, the wining started to disappear. He went from pulling teeth to read 20 minutes of required school reading, to reading 3 inch thick chapter novels...in his free time! You will be surprised wh...

I does work it'self out, and even so, we sometimes school on a Saturday, or Sunday afternoon during the winter months. We also don't take bank Holidays, and our winter break is only one week. with that, you end up getting more done than you realize!

Re: proçrastnation or too hard?

So yes, It does take a bit of adjustment, and there were days we started at 9am, and didn't finish until nearly 4pm because he just couldn't stay on track. BUT, by the end of the guide, he was starting at 9am, and finishing by noon, or 1pm. It just takes some getting used too. once you're in your gr...

Re: Last day of school!!!

Thank you :)

So he turns the last page and says, "What? Appendix?? Is that all I get? No "Congratulations you've completed this book!" ?" lol. We'll make a certificate to put in his records for the year;)
