Re: Bible in LHFHG & Beyond

On the 5th day in Beyond your history reading is a passage from the bible. The bible study box has deeper questions than LHFHG and focuses on your verse for the week and the devotional. You also look up verses in Storytime that relate to the godly character trait you are studying.

HTH,

Re: OT- Bedtime Routine HELP

I agree with what the others have said. I would stop the use of electronics before bed and make prayer the last thing before getting in bed and turning out the lights. We actually pray with the girls once they are in their beds. I think it settles them. Then we turn on a CD and turn out the lights a...

Re: Intended R&S sequence

Thanks for the advice and the link, Katrina! I am really thinking R&S 3 is the way to go.

Re: Intended R&S sequence

Thanks for the links, Katrina! I knew I had seen threads on this before, but when I searched, I wasn't finding what I was looking for. In the thread that was linked from the thread you linked, Carrie wrote this: "With our new ancients guide, we plan to recommend for one level of grammar (your choice...

Intended R&S sequence

Hi, I wanted to see if I understand the intended R&S sequence correctly: Bigger - R&S 2 Preparing - R&S 3 CTC - R&S 4 RTR - R&S 5 Rev2Rev - R&S 6 (1/2) MTMM - R&S 6 (1/2) Is that correct? Is this intended sequence the same regardless of whether or not you start Bigger in 2nd or in 3rd? If you use Be...

Re: Pencil grip issues

Hi Katrina,

You guys haven't changed the pencils you are using lately, have you? We started using round mechanical pencils a long time ago and I have started to think that it contributed to our crossover issues as well. I think it made it too easy for the thumb to "roll".

Re: masking tape issue.

Sorry to hear this! We had issues with masking tape residue on our ceramic tile when left on too long, so switched to electrical tape and it works much better.

Re: Sharing special Bible verses for 2013

This is a favorite of mine and became even more special when my mom told me it held special meaning for her dad, too. :D Proverbs 3:5-6 5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Kathy

Re: LHFHG: how to organize student work

We kept a binder with tabs for anything that would fit in it and then kept a plastic tub for artwork. I xeroxed anything that involved food so we had a picture of it but weren't keeping food stored anywhere. We also took pictures of the girls doing some of the activities and stored those with the bi...

Re: Do you go to a co op?

We had a co-op in the fall which was once a week for 7 weeks. It was not a problem because we were basically doing Bigger half-speed or three days a week at the most. I was doing it more for being with other kids dd's age. You can always do HOD 4 days a week. It would just take you into the next ye...

Re: Rod and Staff Question

If I may piggyback with a question, when are paragraphs taught in R&S?

Re: Looking long-term we won't finish on time - should I wor

Hi Laurie,

I'm wondering if the guides going to 4 days a week starting in Preparing will help any? You will have an extra day each week and at some point might be able to use that to keep making forward progress in the guides and work toward "catching up"? Just a thought..
