Re: Am I the Only One Who Has.....

Ack! You wrote in the book?!?!

Just kidding. If it works for your kids, go for it!

I am such a bibliophile...I cannot bear to write in books. Any books. Plus, my guides will be going through 3 (or more) kids, so no writing in them.

Cheerful Cursive

I just wanted to stop in and say how much we are enjoying Cheerful Cursive this year! Although it was intended to be used during Bigger, my daughter was begging and begging to learn cursive, so we added it to Beyond. She is loving it! And better than that, she is really retaining it, which was one o...

Re: scheduling question

Hi Rachel! :D We are using LHTH for my 4-year-old and Beyond for my nearly-6-year-old this year, and I also have a 1-year-old, so I know how it goes! I think you're doing well as you settle in and get adjusted. Your youngers will eventually get more used to your daily routine and having your attenti...

Re: Feeling Discouraged...

Hope this week is going better for you! (((HUGS))) If you're just beginning to do more formal 'school' with him, then I would say his reaction is pretty much normal. Of course we don't want to give up our play time to do what someone else thinks we should do! As you make your expectations clear ("We...

Re: Problem w/ Energy...Motivation...ME!!

Are you talking about me...? No, wait, you meant yourself :lol: I am no help, because we have an hour of quiet time every day after lunch so I can sleep. Yep, sleep. After that we resume our day. I do find, however, that my energy does last longer if I remember to take my multivitamin and B complex ...

Re: So thankful to have found HOD

Yay! :D I'm so happy it's going well for you!

We are new to HOD as well. We started our first guide (LHTH) in February and loved it so much we added in Beyond for my older DD soon after!

Thanks for sharing :wink:

Re: Beyond guide spelling tests?

I certainly don't think it would hurt anything. :wink: But do you feel it is really necessary to do that many every week?

Re: Buyers remorse

Welcome, Arwen! I'm Sara, and this is our first year using HOD as well. We are using Little Hands to Heaven and Beyond. HOD is truly a Godsend! We will be using Bigger next year with my (then) 3rd-grader. She will be young, but she is very advanced, so I think after doing Beyond this year she will b...

Re: Timing question

How is it going this week? Have you been able to settle into a routine? I can't speak for Bigger, but Beyond doesn't take us a lot of time. We have it pretty streamlined :D Math is a separate subject here, so we don't count that. I gather up the Bible, Science book (if applicable), history book, rea...

Re: advice needed for how to "catch up" a five day unit plan

It's only important to keep each unit in the same week if it's driving you insane, lol :lol: ]

We do school anywhere between 2 and 5 days per week. Our 'Day 1' is never on Monday.

Re: Beyond guide spelling tests?

Great question! Thanks for answering, Stephanie :D I was just rolling along through without even worrying about tests. I guess it never occurred to me that on the days when I just tell her the word and she spells it...that's the same as a test :roll: I'm only 31 and already I'm getting senior moment...

Re: Beyond for a 5.5 year old

We started Beyond when my DD was 5.5. She has actually done very well with it. She loves the history stories...actually she begs to do more every day. Same with the story time books. The science is quick and simple. There is a decent amount of writing, but you could ease into that as she gets ready....
