Re: Preparing...taking him FOREVER

Motherjoy, I'm sorry about the frustration you're having. I hope things settle down soon into a more peaceful day for you. I know Carrie has posted about taking your time at first if need be---just do one side of the guide one day (Learning Through History) then the other (Learning the Basics) the n...

Re: Music Study - Beyond - a little long...

Dorla, you are such a sweetie to gather all of that together! I'm printing this page and putting it in my Beyond notebook. I'm also adding in some folk songs for the later chapters in Beyond. Maybe we can get a list of those going too. I'm starting school for the day, but I'll try to see what I have...

Re: Got my Box !! Yeah!!!!!

Welcome to the boards, Amy! I know you'll have a great time with Beyond. We certainly are, and you will really see the fruit of your work and time from this program. It turned on a little light within my child, and he loves to have school now!

Re: Do I need teacher manuals and test books for LHFHG?

As everyone mentioned before, you don't need anything else for the HOD program you are working on. It's all included in your manual. Something I have decided to do for this year is to make a game based on the level we're using. It will work as review for us through the year, and I'll include math al...

Free Nature Journaling pages and ideas for supplies

I read the request in another thread for this, and thought I'd start a separate post so that we could keep it apart from the other. Before I list some of the free pages I've found, let me say that in the last few weeks I've found nice sketch pads with a side spiral marked down at Hobby Lobby for $1....

Re: here's what I'm doing with our HOD to prepare for the year

I love your ideas! I may have to put a history notebook together like this. I just bought the timeline pages from Tanglewood to use for history notebooking, and I may get a few of the History Scribe sets to add in, as they are on sale at Currclick right now. Thanks for all your great suggestions and...

Re: Getting cold feet about using HOD

Terri, none of us can be you , but we can give you ideas for what seems to work for us . I can't even begin to compare myself to your situation, because I'm homeschooling only one. The thing is, so many of these moms do combine their children successfully and have enjoyable days. The manuals are wri...

Re: Bigger timeline set up [confirming what I think]

This is not the way the timeline is explained in the manuals, but it is an idea I saw somewhere else, and I may put it to use myself. Someone has used a "postcard holder" from Oriental Trading to hold index cards with writing/pictures of the people or events in history. I don't know how durable the ...

Re: Girls Exciting News and Thank You!

That is wonderful news!

I plan on talking up HOD at our support group's meeting this month. I've got Beyond, Bigger, and Preparing and the catalog also, so I hope to give them all a peek into what HOD is like.

Great ideas you have, and such a great opportunity to share! :D
