Re: Ready for dictation?

I don't know if this is correct or not, but we started Bigger recently and I just went through the spelling lists orally with each of my daughters to see where they were. I thought I would just start on the spelling list that she couldn't get most words. Well, one of them could spell them all so we ...

Re: OT...grammar question

It was taught to me that either way is correct, it is your preference. I think I have a punctuation book called Eats, Shoots and Leaves (I think that's the name, my brain is foggy right now), I'll try to remember to look it up in there.

Re: Possible Move to Dallas, TX...Any Insights?

Texas is one of the easiest states to homeschool! I'm so grateful and I would have a hard time living in another state now after hsing here for all of this time. They have some general guidelines, like citizenship, Texas history, etc., but there is no reporting, no testing, you don't have to let the...

Re: Update on Thorton Burgess Books

My son is not very happy with me when we only read a couple of pages!! :) We usually devour books, so it's really hard to stop. He loves the books though.

Re: Dh is not on board...

You know what I love? That you want to spend your extra money on school things for your child! :) Every time I have to spend money on something, I always think of how many books that could've bought. (probably not a great habit) :)

Re: Un-combining? placement help

I was thinking along the lines of MomtoJGJE. If you don't want to have him skip the rest of Bigger, just have him do full speed and her half speed and then move him on to Preparing. From what I've read before, Preparing is a pretty important guide and would be difficult to skip. I don't blame you fo...

Re: Okay, I'll be the one one to ask it...(about HS plans)

I just want to remind everyone that you and your husband are "in charge" of your home and your school and your children and what they need to learn and what you want them to learn. :) It's good to look at guidelines from the school if you are planning on college, but you can determine what you consi...

Re: What if...

I totally agree with you, if your DH made a decision (or gave his opinion) GO WITH IT! I have not done that so many times and it makes them not want to be involved if you aren't going to listen to them anyway. He will be so honored and respected if you go with his wishes. They need that. :) Blessing...

Re: how long does Beyond take?

How do you save your favorite links? Into something else on your computer, or is there something on the board where you can do it? I've never been on boards before and am not a computer whiz.

Re: how long does Beyond take?

Don't worry, I'm taking your advice and keeping them where they are!! Thanks!! How do you find those posts? Whenever I search anything it says it's too common of a word. Some of your find things so quickly.

Re: Share Your HOD Testimony

We have been using Tapestry of Grace for the last couple of years. It was not working for us and our situation. My 14 yo daughter from Liberia didn't fit in any of their levels because of the issues she has with learning and I didn't feel it was meeting my little people's needs. I don't even know wh...

Re: Is my daughter really missing out with no Beyond?

Thanks!!!! I know you are right. That helps to know that they are supposed to grow into it. I was looking over Beyond and I do think it would be too easy for her, it looks like fun though. I'm glad I have more little guys coming up that get to do it. It's so funny that we are so excited to do "schoo...
