Re: Need Help with High School Science Path

I wouldn't focus on the honors track if she isn't interested in a career in a science field. I looked up the graduation requirements for Georgia, and this is what a found (from the Department of Education website): Science: Four units of credit in science shall be required of all students, includin...

Need Help with High School Science Path

Hi. I have 2 questions that I would appreciate help with!! :D 1) If my daughter is not interested in going into a "science field" in college, should she bother with a Honors Science Track? (My daughter is very bright and has always loved school and thrived in her learning. The natural choice would b...

Re: Looking for ideas to keep MAMA accountable

I don't really think that waiting until the 5th day would be very feasible for me (or my daughter). That is a LOT of work to check at one time. I think I somehow need to build a "check-in" time into my own schedule so that I'm remembering to look over everything she does each day.

Looking for ideas to keep MAMA accountable

Hey there! My 3 kiddos are working through HOD this year. My oldest is completely independent in MtMM, my middle is going through Res to Ref with modifications (he is severely dyslexic), and my youngest is in Beyond. I need suggestions on how to keep on top of my oldest's work and progress. My daugh...

Re: Can you combine read alouds??

ABSOLUTELY!! My oldest is in Rev to Rev this year, and she does her story time books all on her own. But, I have all 3 of my kiddos join our "family story time" each day. I usually choose a book from my middle's book list. All of the books from HOD are so well chosen that you cannot go wrong reading...

Re: 8th Grade Science -- Need help!

She is finishing up the physical science in Rev2Rev right now. She's done great with it. So are you saying that with the Rev2Rev science + the MtMM science that would equate to a complete physical science program? That would be amazing if so!

8th Grade Science -- Need help!

In my state, students take physical science in 8th grade. Students on the Honors Path are required to take 4 further sciences in high school (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and a "you choose" science course as their 4th credit). My daughter will be in MtMM next year. She loves looking through the HOD ...

Re: 10 yr old boy not ready for CtC

<<I'm also wondering about his writing. The written narrations are quite guided in PHFHG, and for most of the guide they have a length of 1-3 sentences and for the end of the guide of 3-5 sentences. I know you mentioned helping him with this, which is just fine especially at the start, as written na...

Re: 10 yr old boy not ready for CtC

Hi, Carrie. In answers to your questions, no my son did not do the "independent boxes" on his own. We have actually been doing Preparing a second time through. My son struggles with memory issues and retention, so having him repeat the entire year of Preparing is actually working well for him. He ha...

10 yr old boy not ready for CtC

My son, 10, used Preparing and did well with it. We did do all of the history readings together (he is dyslexic), but he was able to do much of the science on his own (he really enjoyed the Small Square books). However, he is NOT ready for Creation to Christ. I am not sure what to do... We did a wee...
