Re: Do you feel the need to add anything to HOD?

Thank you for the encouragement! Yes, we have a 30 minute block for free-reading each afternoon, plus the story-time in the guide. I am also going to make her do 30 minutes of "skill practice" each afternoon - finger knitting, cooking, baking, painting, knot-tying, things like that. I guess I just n...

Do you feel the need to add anything to HOD?

I guess I am always second guessing myself, asking if what we are doing is "enough". So I guess more than advice I'm looking for encouragement! My 3rd grader just completed unit 20 of Bigger Hearts. She is halfway through Math Lessons for a Living Education and halfway through Rod and Staff 2. We ar...

Re: Week in Review: January 9-13, 2017

Mercie started back in Bigger Hearts for His Glory this week. She picked up on Unit 18, where she left off last year. She had fun looking through all of her poetry pages, vocabulary pages, Notebooking and science experiment pages in her binder from last year. We are just adding to it to finish it! h...

Re: Week in Review: January 9-13, 2017

We started back in Little Hearts for His Glory this week, on Unit 1. Silas had a great week, and I feel I started him too early last year. It seems to be the perfect fit now.

Re: week in review: January 11-15, 2016

I love seeing the "older" guides in action! I am considering HOD for my going-to-be-8th grader next year. I would really like to get started on it now, but...well...$$$! It always makes me want to order, though, when I see how fun it looks! I know my daughter would love it!

Everyone wants to join in Bigger Hearts!

We are on Unit 16 in Bigger Hearts, and today we had to draw, color, and cut out an insect. Then we had to hide the insect around the house and the others had to find it! It was so much fun, all the kids wanted to play!! Just wanted to share that.

We're Baaaack!

We started back with Bigger Hearts for His Glory, Unit 15, this week. It feels so good to be back! We took a two-month break to do some "fun-schooling", but surprisingly, my kids asked to start Bigger again! So here we are, we are back in the groove, and having a great week! I didn't realize we woul...
