scheduling in Bigger

Hi ladies, I am thinking of year round homeschooling for the sake of my work, flexibility in scheduling, and keeping the kiddos connected to their learning so hopefully they will retain more... Bigger is scheduled for 5 days a week, right? I am concerned about breaking up the week's work due to exte...

placement 13 yo 1st time HS

In reviewing the placement chart, I am having trouble trying to place my niece in an appropriate spot. She is 13. Will be in 8th grade. Never homeschooled before. So, never introduced to dictation / narration and may not be able to fit with Singapore's way of doing math. She is very bright and has a...

Re: Bigger Hearts

Is that 9 weeks in the sense of seven day weeks? or is that 9 weeks of actual school days?? Does that make sense? Would I mark 9 traditional weeks on the calendar or would I count out 9 weeks worth of work days.. I think I'm trying too hard here..... lol :oops:

Re: Living in the Past or Present?

Thank you all so much for your responses. I can see that feeding my dc with a healthy, meaty mental / spiritual diet of strong ideas will give them a solid foundation on which to build. The rest will come. This is truly part of the reason I want to homeschool - to get them away from the shallows of ...

Living in the Past or Present?

This may be an odd or obviously answered question, but here goes.... In reviewing the materials for LHFHG and BHFHG, I feel as though we are submerged in a literary, historical world but lacking in the area of practical, scientific, day to day, real world exposure that kids need to , well, live in t...

Re: spelling in Bigger

Thank you. That makes a lot of sense, actually. And my ds as well forgets consistently his capitals and punctuation. So, I think actually working through the lists, the readings, and correcting his everyday work should be sufficient. Truly, in his everyday work, his spelling is not great and making ...

spelling in Bigger

After skimming through the appendix, I am wondering how to beef up the spelling / dictation for my son. He will actually be in 5th grade and has been spelling more complex words than these. ((He has flip flopped from C's to F's to A's to C's in spelling depending on effort and not losing his spellin...

Re: Butterflies in my tummy...

Thank you, Carrie, for creating a personal and individualized environment. This board is a great resource and it is wonderful how supportive you all are. I have spoken with Mr. Austin a few times on the phone. I have met Carrie and Julie both, two separate times. Inspiring and sweet folks! :D

Shipment arrived! math ?

I purchased part of my materials for BHFHG at the Greenville, SC convention and some of them they shipped to me. I received a box full of books : the science economy package and the boy book pack for DITHOR 4/5. I was shocked and thinking.... did I really order all these books? I pored over the ship...

Re: Butterflies in my tummy...

Thank you all so much for your replies. I was just trying to pray this morning and telling the Lord, Please don't let me get stuck in the Martha spirit - entangled in the things and the tasks and the checklists, but to be full of the Mary spirit, sitting, eating, drinking, receiving His direction an...

Butterflies in my tummy...

Hi to everyone! I did it! I have fulfilled my own heart's desire, and I am full of anxiety. One side of me is sure that God has led me to homeschool and to use HOD. The other side of me is scared to death and not sure if I have jumped in to something that I will not be able to feasibly do, or that m...

Re: Carrie, Julie : an HOD school...??

Our small church is planning to expand the Sunday School and we have talked a little about a church school. I am trying to research about this. I wasn't sure if the HOD part of it would just be a matter of buying materials or if there are other things (legal, etc.) involved. I am going to assume tha...
