Re: What guides are you doing?

We are in Unit 12 of Beyond with my second grade dd and Unit 18 of LHTH with my pre-K dd. They love the hands-on activities. :D

Re: Teaching Rod and Staff

Thanks, everyone! Your replies have reassured me that I can probably eliminate the class section and just scan it for extra info. if I have the time or inclination. :D It sounds like you have been able to successfully teach the concepts without using that section. I appreciate your help!

Teaching Rod and Staff

Hi, I have been looking over the Rod and Staff teacher manual and need some help understanding the order of teaching it. It is not clear to me if you are supposed to do the teaching in the "Class" section first and then read the student book together, or vice versa. A lot of times it is the same inf...

Re: As we move into high school, the design of the guides...

As we look at other companies who have gone before us, we desire to take a different path from what is already offered. While I hesitate to mention much in the way of comparison to other companies, since the Sonlight teacher's notes where mentioned earlier in the thread as one ideal, I will share t...

Re: As we move into high school, the design of the guides...

Thanks for asking for input, Carrie. It might be helpful to separate into two different lists what the needs for the student will be and what the needs for the parents will be. I, for one, want to have teacher helps in high school. I would like book-specific information and guidance as to what our s...

Re: need HELP with the attitude sin

Hugs, I am just on the cusp of 8 with my older dd, and I have heard that 8 and 9 can be very challenging with girls. It really does sound like there is a problem with obedience and respect here, and personally I would nip that immediately with swift consequences, like netpea said. When my dd shows a...

Re: Guides taking much longer than Carrie and Julie's times

Hugs! I haven't done Bigger, so I can't offer encouragement there. It sounds like anything involving writing or art is taking longer. I wonder if it is just a matter of time for your son's writing speed to be able to increase? One suggestion I have regarding art is to push it to the end of the day. ...

Re: Question about Beyond

We use the Mead primary journal notebook with the space at the top for a drawing and the dashed primary lines at the bottom. We continue on the same sheet until we are done with that poem or we've run out of room. That way the copywork and the illustration are all on one page.

HTH,

A Sticky for How to Set Up for Each Guide?

Hi,

I was wondering if it would be possible to have a sticky at the top for threads that talk about how to set up for each guide. I think this would be very helpful! :D

Thanks!

Re: Need guidance in how to handle 2nd and 3rd grade LA

Thanks, Kelley! So did you just do the LA as written in Beyond and then start the Bigger LA when you got to it? I'm thinking of going the same route. I think R&S will work out in the end and the spelling will eventually work its way out as we move into dictation. It would be nice to just be using on...

Need guidance in how to handle 2nd and 3rd grade LA

Hi, we started Beyond this spring (1st grade) and finished up through week 12, day 1 before we finished school for the year. We did the spelling list 1, poetry copywork, and 5th day grammar as written. What I'm trying to figure out is how to handle the LA for 2nd and 3rd grade. Do we continue with t...

Re: Question about LHFHG

We did the timeline on a Crayola floor pad. It ended up being several pages long. It was nice that we could fold it up at the end of the year as opposed to a poster board. I think my dd got a lot out of doing it. The fact that she drew the pictures herself instead of using pre-fabbed ones made the i...
