Supplementing R&S math with Singapore?

Hi, Where to begin... I'm looking for some math advice. I am using R&S 1st grade math with my 6 and 7 year old, and it's been a great year. My oldest just hated math, HATED IT, and then I found that the Mastery method of drill and kill works quite well for her. Her confidence is growing and she usua...

Re: Choosing for next year

Hi Busymoma1, I'm praying that te Lord will help us make decision that helps us choose the right program so that our home school "looks and feels" the way I think it could be! Cuddling while reading, excitement, enjoyment. Plus, I love how the programs help to bring home spiritual principles through...

Re: Choosing for next year

Hi there, I just have a few minutes, and hope I can be of help. I was in your shoes last year. I have a 5, 6 and 7 year old and wasn't sure if I should combine or separate my children. My oldest sounds a lot like yours, as she is an advanced reader and very strong in language arts. Since I have two ...

Re: Devotional for LHFHG

That would be me! :D I am currently using LHFHG with an older version of Devotions for the Children's Hour, one that was printed in 1969. The LHFHG manuel assigns the stories according to the page numbers, not the chapter titles, so it's sometimes frustrating trying to figure out which story is bein...

Re: Sort of OT: We have been sick for weeks-- since 2/17 and

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. :( You have my sympathy.

I hate it when sickness takes a toll on the family like that.

Pray, and remember we have an advocate with the Father. :wink:

Re: What MATH program do you use with HOD?

Hey there, :D I started homeschooling using the Rod and Staff preschool books, and because I loved them so much, I continued on with R&S for first grade. I mention this only because I was using this before I learned about HOD. R&S math is a traditional mastery program, meaning the children thoroughl...

Re: HOD is wonderful

I couldn't agree with you more! I am currently doing LHFHG with my 3 oldest, and they absolutely LOVE it! :D :D :D My girls love Rhymes in Motion! It's usually how we begin our school day, and it always ends up with my children hugging me to the point of being tackled! We cuddle during story time, a...

Re: Those of you with a few years experience...

I have been homeschooling for a few years, not so long, but I will tell you what I have learned! :P A few years ago, a friend recommended the R&S preschool books, so I offered them to my child when she was 4. I noticed my dd really didn't enjoy it, and wanted to rush through the coloring pages. I de...

Re: Combining children for ease rather than ability? Help!

Thank you Carrie and everyone else who responded to my concerns. Da! :!: I totally forgot about DITHOR! I bought that last year it was too advanced for my dd at the time. I started reviewing it, and now I think it's going to be a wonderful fit for my daughter in Beyond. I am so excited! I also just ...

Greeting to everyone who reads this! I am new to the HOD board. I am currently doing LHFHG with my 5, 6 and 7 year old and love it. I wrote a glowing review yesterday, but my message didn't go through! :( I will have to try again later. My question today, is in regards to the placement of my 7 year ...
