Dictation not finished

Hi ladies, I can't remember if I've read something about this topic before. My ds has been struggling with dictation this year. Spelling has always been a weak point for him. Last year, when we did Preparing with him, he breezed through dictation level 3. I felt it was too easy for him but we comple...

Re: Updates for Beefing up guides

I'm sorry, Carrie, I see where you updated the 'beefing up" thread for Rev2Rev but I can't find an updated thread for MtM. Am I missing it?

Re: Spiral Bound Guides???

This is what I do with my guides. When I receive the guide, I take it to a bindery and have the binding shaved off and the guide 3-hole-punched. I put it into a binder. Each child has picked out a special portfolio that has tabs to allow 3-hole-punched items to be secured in it. In each portfolio I ...

Re: Tell me I'm crazy..

Well, I try to keep my guides nice so they are in good shape for my younger student. When I receive the guide, I take it to a bindery and have the binding shaved off and the guide 3-hole-punched. I put it into a binder. Each child has picked out a special portfolio that has tabs to allow 3-hole-punc...

Re: Half speed

Sometimes we do half speed if our outside-school life is too overwhelming or if the kids are sick. For math and English I will have them do half lessons each day. For Rod and Staff English we read the lesson together and do the oral work on the first day and then I have them do the written work on t...

Re: Week in Review: August 17-21, 2015

I just wanted to say that we had a great week with HOD! I did so much research this year, looking for a new homeschool program for our family. We had such a terrible year last year. My dd (11) has hated school for so long and fights against everything we try to do. My ds(9) has his own attitude stru...

Re: Two children using the same guide

I am new to HOD. I am placing both my advanced 4th grader and my struggling 6th grader into CtC because that is just where they both seem to fit. I really cannot afford to buy a second guide so this is what I did. I took the guide to a copy shop and had them shave off the binding, 3-hole-punch it an...
