Re: Preparing Hearts for His Glory

Hello, My second son will start the guide preparing in Jan. I was going to use the old guide with him. Is there a huge difference between the old revision and the new one? Will some of the books still be used. I know I have all the books, even the ones for the expansion package, for the older revisi...

Re: New Edition and Notebooking Pages for Preparing?

Hello, I receive email updates from time to time about blog posts and such. Will the arrival of these notebooking pages be posted in one of these emails? Just curious. My son starts preparing in Jan. I see that there will more likely be a new guide too but I'm going to continue for now with the old ...

Re: Understanding HS Credits

Okay, I'll look at a few colleges but how would I "make" a transcript? Is this something I come up with or is there a website I go too? Do I have to save tests or even create them? I know how to grade things but how do I decide if they earned that credit? For instance my oldest does A and B work but...

Understanding HS Credits

Hello, It's me again. This time I have a question about High School Credits. I know I have two years before my kid hits the High School level but I'm trying to grasp this now so I can prepare for the future. I found a post that talks about high school credits but I think I'm looking for more informa...

Re: Confused, Struggling

Julie and Rice, Thank you so much for all the advice. I think I will implement these ideas into my schedule I'm making. I'm doing so much that I hope that I can get it all done by Jan 4th but I'm determined. So done with this online program (making them finish out the first semester with that). I to...

Re: Confused, Struggling

Are you sure she did LHFHG fully at her level when she did it? Or was she tagging along with big brothers? If she was tagging along to some degree, could you do it again with her? Rice, Thank you so much for your reply. I will certainly take these into consideration. To answer your question on LHFH...

Confused, Struggling

Hello, I was using HoD for two years, but this year things just didn't work out like I wanted it too. I tried using an online platform but that isn't working for us either. I want to come back to HoD, but I'm just not sure how it will work. I want to bring them back to HoD Jan 4th. My children are a...

Re: Check-in: What guides are you using?

Your 4th grader is not behind in Bigger! While some use it for 2nd, it's true, most use it for 3r or 4th, so with LDs, Bigger should be a perfect fit! (And even Beyond, with LDs isn't unusual. :) ) However, do you have your 1st grader in Bigger, too, or is that a typo? Since your signature says the...

Handwriting?!

There is no scheduled handwriting in this guide. Is this so they can have a break or is it because they start doing spell words? Should I put them in one? I'm wanting to start my son on cursive (he is nine but he has learning disabilities that's keeping him from advancing with his brother, 11yo). My...

Re: How do I run the guide?

Carrie, Thank you for your response. I did have to coach him a lot. He has a hard time focusing so I have to constantly be on him. He also hates writing because he struggles with spelling. He does great with the emerging readers and can comprehend what he reads even though he can't sit still reading...

How do I run the guide?

I have 5 children but my issue currently is with my oldest two. Boy 1 is 11yo and Boy 2 is 9 yo. Boy 2 has learning disabilities so he requires a lot of my attention. Boy 1 loves to learn, excels at many things but he loves to do shortcuts. (and he thinks he can get away with it because I have to gi...

Re: New Edition and Notebooking Pages for Preparing?

Can we still use the older guides? What is notebooking pages? I can't afford to buy new guides for my boys. I'm using the one I bought last year but it was too advanced for them so I took them down one guide. This year they will be returning back to Preparing Hearts that was not over a year ago. Tha...

Re: Hi I Need Help

Hello, Julie. Thanks for the advice. I actually pulled Zander, my oldest out of preparing and but him in his brother's book of Bigger and bought the extension package. It is working much better and it's helping my middle son to work harder and better because now he has competition. My oldest loves t...
