Re: DITHOR for high school - how many genres to cover?

I did more digging here and saw a comment about covering all genres using DITHOR for high school. That is what we will do. I would still love a resource recommend for a high school literature list. I will bounce around other Christian curriculum sites as one resort. Is that what others do? We are bu...

DITHOR for high school - how many genres to cover?

I need a bit of guidance using DITHOR for high school credit. I have searched the high school literature and beefing up threads, but didn't find anything mentioning how many genres to cover. Outside of needing to use high school level books, do we need to cover all the genres DITHOR contains or just...

Re: Help with math placement please!!

I would look at the different programs online, check out demos and samples, and see what your dd likes and feels comfortable with. Then take that into consideration with the programs you may have a gut feeling about. My dd did No-Nonsense and Carrie did not recommend she move into Foerester after th...

Re: Geometry: A Guided Inquiry

Thank you for asking this question. Julie, thank you for the Geometry plan you shared. I printed it out to put with my teaching materials. We will be starting this soon. Dd has been using CTC Online for math and we are quite pleased with it. We will keep on with it for Geometry but move over to havi...

Re: Need high school advice; guides overlapping grades/behin

Patti, thank you for sharing that. That makes more sense now. We definitely have the online experience thing covered then. Daneale, dd did read some lit books and started filling out DITHOR pages for 2 genres. It just stopped there. I had 2 grandparents to die that year. My parents did in home hospi...

Re: New-notebook pages?

My oldest two did their pages as Carrie recommends. I found those yahoo group pages for Bigger with my youngest and started using them. It was fun, but then I did get sad looking at her binder compared to her sisters. I felt I was cheating my youngest. The other two had such a 'handmade' feel to the...

God bless ya! Dh bought a travel trailer last year, so I know the space you are talking about and lacking. Plus we have renovated our home for the last 20 years. Ripped dh's grandfather's house down to the studs and redid it all ourselves. I also understand the huge undertaking. Keep you eye on the ...

Re: Need high school advice; guides overlapping grades/behin

Oh yay! I just found this in the #7 sneak peak for the WH guide: Utilizing this below, we can get our Brit Lit in!!! I shall still let dd pick out a title or two either as a sub or alongside. If time allows, would it be silly to still have her fill out the DITHOR worksheets? If anything, having them...

Re: Skipping guides?

To God be the glory! How wonderful for your son and your family! I can share about skipping guides. We skipped Rev to Rev with my oldest. While we enjoyed MTMM, looking back is bitter sweet. My dd was caught, and still is, between grades in a guide. I felt she had to do all the high school guides, s...

Re: Need high school advice; guides overlapping grades/behin

I think I have my brain wrapped around things better now. Thanks again for all the help everyone has offered. Quickly looking over dd's WWTB 2 work, there is possibly one thing not completed. I need to look more thoroughly at it this weekend to double check all the work against the MTMM guide, and t...

Re: Multiplication Facts

For my middle dd, skip counting worked great. My youngest is struggling with remembering the order of doing that. Just memorizing rote facts is not her strong suit either. She stares at the charts. I explain how to work on memorizing them, and she claims she doesn't know what to do. She is my wiggle...

Re: Need high school advice; guides overlapping grades/behin

Thank you to everyone for the replies and helpful advice. I do need to sit down and get caught up on dd's credits/subjects. I had some things down, but need to go back over the MTMM year and see what additional might be applicable for credit. Dd also took 24 weeks of pottery that school year. I almo...

Re: Need high school advice; guides overlapping grades/behin

Thank you, Lynn. I was just popping in and lining up some reading for this afternoon. Dd is doing German right now using Living Language. I think the set we have covers levels 1-3. We may utilize DuoLingo online just as a refresher and giving her something different to look at from time to time. I d...

Re: Need high school advice; guides overlapping grades/behin

We are in Michigan. I need to refresh myself on state requirements as I don't have them handy atm. She is not sure on college. She wants to do 'storyboarding' or use a combo of her art and music skills. We don't advocate for away colleges/universities, so local is what we would consider. There is a ...
