Where to place my almost 6 year old...

Okay, so some funds have freed up and I now want to do history and science with HOD for my younger child more on his level. I just can't decide which!

At the end of the 2009-2010 school year, I plan to start using HOD exclusively. I plan to put my then 7 year old in Beyond and move my older up. We did CHOW th...

Re: Our week with Bigger~ Unit 11

We have not started bigger just yet (and won't until closer to July), but I love the edible bird nests...and we are already planning to raise some chickens this summer...so that will fit in nicely. :) YAY!

Re: Waiting until fall???

Ummm...YEAH! LOL We don't go by what PS does. I don't take snow days just because they do. I don't take vacations when they do. So, why would my kids get "out" when they do? My kids have a full summer, but we do school in the summers too. It may just be English and Math everyday...or it may be somet...

Now that I have gotten all of my materials for History and Science with Bigger, I just had to come on and say how impressed I am with the program. WOW! Love all the books, and particularly the way that BHFHG ties the history of the time with the science of the times. I can't wait to start this...and...
