Re: Res to Ref, big step up./ Shakespeare

Found a detailed post explaining Shakespeare, written by Carrie, and I appreciate her insight and reasonings regarding the Shakespeare option. Just letting others know. I found it by searching and browsing "resurrection", although, I assume it could be found with a "Shakespeare" search. I don't know...

Res to Ref, big step up./ Shakespeare

Hoping to return to HS and HOD in the fall. My son turns 12 this month and went from Bigger last year to 6th grade ps this year. Looking back I wish I had put him in Preparing, although we did enjoy Bigger a lot. He transitioned well, though. I am thinking of moving him up to Res to Ref based on the...

Considering return to HS next fall. My now 8 yo will turn 9 in Oct. Her reading level tests in PS at this point still place her in mid first grade level. My thoughts are to do Beyond with R&S 2, cheerful cursive, and probably continue spelling list 2 or dictation. She enjoys math but struggles with ...

Re: Help 6th grade

Carrie, I found some other posts that calmed some of my frantic anxieties. This year has been so difficult, but I want to HS with all my heart, to build a biblical worldview for my children. And I can't let the struggles and falling behind steal the harvest that will come from persevering onward. I ...

science w/ Preparing

Is it ok to ask??... I am considering using an Apologia science in conjunction with Preparing science (because my son wants more science). Is there a recommendation for either something that fits well with the content of Preparing or customary at the 6th grade level?
