Science coverage question

I see that in Beyond- the science jups all over God's wonderful works... will the entire book be covered by the end of Beyond? I see that it is unit based, which is ok with me but I almost wanted to go through the creation book front to back. Does anything get skipped? The science seems minimal in t...

Re: using Bigger for 5/7 year old?

I already have R&S 2 Phonics, Preparing to Build and Reader set. Would That take the place of DITHOR? So, recapping what my3sons suggested (to hopefully understand it all): Get the LHFHG guide for my 5YO, use it as written for her and for my 7YO, just use my R&S and Miquon math that I already have i...

Re: We just finished Beyond!

Re: using Bigger for 5/7 year old?

So far, so good just combining them for now. I think I am going to go ahead and get LHFHG (for 5yo right) to start once she hits 5 and see how we can combine that way. Maybe hold off. I really have no organization skills at all so to have them on different days would really confuse me LOL. Maybe I w...

Re: using Bigger for 5/7 year old?

First, are you referring to Bigger (like in your title) or Beyond (like in your post). Beyond has a blue cover and Bigger has a yellow and green cover. I would not use either of these guides with a 5yo. Bigger is meant for 7-9yos, and works best with older 7yos to younger 9yos. Most families use it...

Re: using Bigger for 5/7 year old?

So the moms that have a kid on each level, how do you teach them?
Are there any topics that they learn together?

Re: using Bigger for 5/7 year old?

Yes, I ment Beyond! What about using it just for history/science/bible for both and use their separate math/language/reading programs? I really need to combine and get on a better schedule. We did great last year with MFW 1st grad and this year, they are doing an eclectic mix and stuff is getting le...

using BEYOND for 5/7 year old?

I have an almost 5 year old that has been working on Kinder stuff and a 7 year old that is an advanced reader.
I recently bought Beyond from a friend and I am trying to make it work for both of them...but it seems way too in the middle.

How can I make it work for a K/2nd grader?
