Re: Reading Made Easy

My 6-year-old wanted to start school at 4.5-years-old and so we started LHFHG using Reading Made Easy. (BTW: If I had to do it all over again I would have started with LHTH, but didn’t realize it at the time.) We completed 80% of Reading Made Easy the first year doing a whole lesson in one day and r...

Re: Reading Made Easy

Some of those blog posts I had not seen. I found then enlightening. Thank you!

I could not find a search on the blog by topic. How are the blog archives accessible?
Is there a blog entry about LHFHG like the one about Beyond?

Re: Reading Made Easy

I guess I’m having this conversation with myself, lol! I had thought this must have gone smoothly for someone. I re-read some of the intro to Reading Made Easy and the author says to do 3 LESSONS per week and review the other two days. When I tried to have my child do the phonics part, and the cards...

Re: Question regarding LHFHG Phonics & BHFHG English

I think I can help with some of your questions. We have recently done LHFHG, Beyond, and Bigger. I have used both Reading Made Easy and the Reading Lesson. I really liked the Simplicity of The Reading Lesson (TRL), but we finished it in 20 weeks, so it won’t last the whole year and it didn’t quite p...

Reading Made Easy

I used Reading Made Easy with my oldest, but I don’t feel like I did it well. Not knowing any better I moved her out of it after finishing 80% of the lessons in Kindergarten to the Emerging Reader Set in first grade. After struggling through the ERS for a year, I realized I moved her on too quickly ...

Pacing the first years

I’m confused about what people do the first few years as far as pacing the guides. Do most people use LHTHG for kindergarten and go at half speed to use it for kindergarten and first grade and start Beyond for 2nd grade? Or do most people skip kindergarten and delay starting their child until first ...

Using math textbooks and grammar teacher’s guide

I am looking to order all the materials I will need to start my daughter in the Preparing guide in the new year. I am wondering if I could easily get along without buying the math textbooks if the 3A & 3B workbooks are self explanatory as were the previous levels. I am wondering the same thing about...

The case for age range on manuals?

I have been wondering about the case for the age ranges on the manuals, especially the minimum age. I have started 2 children with Heart of Dakota. My oldest was barely 5 years old when I started her with Little Hearts and she did fine in all areas even doing all the first grade options except she s...

Daydreamer child

I was wondering if someone might have some tips or encouragement to offer considering a Day dreamy child. She has always been this way even before she started school. She is now turning 8 years old this month and still let’s her mind wander. Of course as her mother I find it frustrating enough outsi...

Reading level

Does anyone know the reading level of The Bears on Hemlock Mountain and The Courage of Sarah Noble? I tried to research it, but couldn’t find definitive answers.

Placement after getting too far ahead

Hi, I started my oldest in LHFHG 3 years ago the month she turned 5 years old (Aug). I had worked with her and printed off worksheets and had a good idea of what she would be capable. There were a few struggles, but I considered them personality flaws and my personality filled in the holes. Two mont...
